Funny Friday: Watch What You Say

Kids often take thing literally. Sometimes it can be annoying, sometimes it is quit amusing.
A couple of days ago Alex was eating a lot of raisins. She kept eating more and more, so I told her; "you had better be careful or you are going to have raisin poop."

Lucas overheard this so I explained to him how sometimes things don't get fully digested and just pass through you.

Yesterday Alex went into the cupboard and got out a raisin. She was holding it in her hand examining it. "Raisin poop?" she asked me.

"No, no, it's just a raisin." I said trying not to laugh.

"Not poop?" she questioned again.

"Nope, just a raisin, you can eat it."


  1. That's too funny! Kids are so very literal. If you say things like "I can't see." because the sun is in your eyes, they think you have gone blind. careful what you say.

  2. You know corn seems to do the same thing - but I wouldn't mention it. ;)

    I feel for you on your first day of school butterflies. It really does get easier, though. I'm only on to the second grade, and still get those butterflies, but I survived without the tears this time.

  3. LOL I looove it - kids say the funniest things to
    "Ya know Miss uncle is a jerk."
    "Really hon..why do you say that?"
    "Cause my Mommy said so all the way home from Montana!"
    I try to keep a straight face - it never works. Wonderful post.

  4. are so entertaining!
    Prunes will be bigger poop?!
    Lovely weekend guys~

  5. LOL
    A couple of years ago my boys saw some deer poop on the sidewalk and went to pick it up calling it raisins. Um no not raisins!

  6. cute story...stopping by to say "hi" and welcome to SITS...Now I know what I'll be thinking when I take out the raisins for my morning oatmeal ;-)

  7. LOL! I was worried this was going to have a gross ending-- thank goodness!

    I came by to welcome you to SITS! We're happy to have you with us!

  8. LOL my mom gave my brother a childrens tylenol when he was younger. She told him it was for his nose, since he had a cold and a runny nose. next hting you knew my brother had pink boogies coming out of his nose. He shoved the tylenol up his nose instead of eating it. "Mommy you said it was for my nose," Yeah he's not the brightest crayon.
