Cute Kid Story  
It's snowing, and I'm cold and mopey, so I leave you with two cute kid stories.


I talk to Kate, our dog, all the time. I mean ALL THE TIME. Perhaps unhealthily so. However, yesterday I was in the kitchen making dinner, and AJ was sitting at the bar doing his spelling homework. Katie was underfoot, as usual, waiting on me to drop something, (safe bet) and I started talking to her.

Me. (to dog) Hey, sister. Move along. Nothing to see here. (Katie is unmoved) Kate. Out of the kitchen. You've already eaten supper.

AJ. Mom.

Me. Mmm?

AJ. Katie doesn't speak English.

Me. (I really have to think about this one - of course she understands me!) Oh?

AJ. She speaks Doglish.


Aaron is just starting to read well. So this morning, we're in my bathroom, and I'm combing his hair in front of the sink, and he's reading the label on the tag attached to my hair dryer.

AJ. (reads) "Warn children of the risk of death by electric shock."

(Aaron looks at me, obviously judging the fact that I've never 'warned' him about this appliance he's never used. He flips the tag over and reads the other side)

AJ (reads) "Keep away from water - Danger."

(AJ looks at me, purses his lips and scoots everything two feet to the left of the sink, apparently thinking that I've never taken the time to read that particular label, then sighs in resignation.)


I'm SO happy I have a six year-old looking out for me.

Children just have their very own kind of logic.

I laughed so loud the rest of the office had to come read the stories. Cute. And I talk to Prince all the time. Most of the time it's me saying "What?" and him replying in a very feminine meow. This will continue until dad tells me to get a life.

I have full blown conversations with our dog, Holly. She talks back as well. It's like this soft growl she does and she gets excited.

your boy's the cutest thing I've ever seen. Efrayim has started to get funny too, it's great.

LMAO! The second story is made of so much win and awesome that I had to stifle my laughter or risk my officemates wondering if I'm crazy. :D

The warning label one was the best! Thanks for sharing.

Your kids are the cutest! I laughed so hard reading those two stories.

I used to talk to my two dogs all the time. I swear my lab could almost talk back to me too. *nods firmly*
