If you only knew the stories your kids are telling

28 May

I got an earful at the bus stop today.  Another little girl in Goose’s kindergarten line had all kinds of stories to tell.

Little kindergarten girl:  Our car is a piece of junk.

Me:  Oh, really?

LKG:  Yeah, we had to push it all the way over here.  Me and my mom.  My little brothers stayed in the car and said weeeeee!

Me:  That’s too bad.

LKG:  I have this special rock to remember my cousin by.

Me:  That’s a pretty rock.

LKG:  He broke up with my mom.

Me:  Your cousin broke up with your mom?

LKG:  Yeah.

Me:  That’s too bad.

LKG:  And then he left with Corinne.

Me:  Corinne?

LKG:  Yeah.  Corinne stomped on my mom’s heart and crushed it.

Me:  That’s too bad.


I don’t even want to know what my kids are saying when I’m not around.

    ROTFL! First her male cousin and then Corinne? Topped off with a piece-of-junk car? Wow. Who knows what to make of that?!

    LOL! When my son was in kindergarten, every Monday the kids had to draw a picture of what they did over the weekend, along with a sentence describing it. One time, my son’s “weekend picture” was of a crying woman with the sentence, “We had to calm our mom down.”

    I once substituted for the 5 year old Primary Sunday school class years ago. There were 3 kids in the class, all boys. The lesson was on Heavenly Father, and the manual said to bring some men’s shoes and talk about the kids’ fathers and then HF. So I asked the boys to tell me about their dads.

    One boy said, “My dad isn’t at church today. My mom kicked him out of the house this weekend. Because he’s been drinking and she’s not having it.”

    I later saw his mother crying in a corner and another woman comforting her.

    After that I always worried about what my kids might be saying to who knows who!

    This was super funny. Once I was substituting Sunbeams and we were talking about our Fathers and a little girl just popped up and said. “My Dad is really good at smoking.” “He even rolls his own!” What?!?!? They were active too. Where on earth did she hear the term “rolls his own?”

    cheryl—I was halfway wondering if “cousin” was just what the mom called him, kinda like “uncle”. It does sound creepy though. And interesting.

    Jamie—I’m afraid of what might be going on in that home.

    Boquinha—The Corinne thing cracked me up. I wondered if they all knew Corinne well and then she up and ran off with her mom’s man!


    patience—My kids could totally have drawn the same “weekend picture”. A number of times.

    Susan—“She’s not having it.” That’s a great line. So sad that poor woman was having such a rough time though.

    Janelle—Does he “grow” his own too? Crazy! And hilarious.

    Yeah I was concerned and wondered if I should talk to her until I saw her crying on someone’s shoulder and figured she didn’t need me butting in too.

    My mom teaches sixth grade and she starts every year telling the parents that she won’t believe everything they say about what happens at home if they don’t believe everything they say about what happened school.
