Enjoy some MommaSaid classics for “Just a Minute,” the funny things kids do:
Thanks to Brenda Anderson of St. Augustine, Florida, for this story:
Brenda was cleaning her sons’ bathroom when Colby, 19 months, ran in and right into a stepstool in the middle of the floor, stubbing his toes. After about 30 seconds of crying and consoling he dashed back out of the bathroom.
A minute later, Brenda heard his footsteps round the corner and come back into the bathroom. The stool was now out of the way, but Brenda said, “Watch your toes, watch your toes!” Colby abruptly stopped running and…looked down at his toes. He looked up a little confused and ran back out.
Thanks to Amanda Gross of Suffern, New York, for this story:
Amanda’s sister Staci and their father were at her house one day, where Staci made the mistake of leaving her pocketbook on one of Amanda’s end tables in the living room. A mistake, because Amanda has a toddler in the house, Jeremy, 2.
Soon, Jeremy started rooting through his Aunt Staci’s purse. Amanda told him to get out of the pocketbook, but Staci insisted that there wasn’t anything in there for him to touch or destroy.
Just as the words left Staci’s mouth, Jeremy pulled out a panty liner and declared, “Big Band Aid!”
Then he walked over to his grandfather and placed the “big band aid” on the scar from the surgery he had on his stomach this summer.
Do you think Grandpa feels fresh and confident now?
(This one is Jen Singer’s)
My first grader brought home a drawing of a gingerbread man from a story he had read in school. Under it he wrote, “I would make the gingerbread man a lady and they would fall in love.”
Aw, how sweet, I thought. I imagined my romantic son buying flowers for his wife someday…
And then I flipped over the drawing and read the back, “And then I would eat both of them.”
