Quote of the month...

"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."
from Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra by Obert Skye

Tuesday, February 5, 2008


Scott came up with a three-quarters eaten peanut-butter cookie and said, "I can't eat this!"

Mom: "You've eaten most of it, just finish."

Scott: "I can't eat it, 'cause it's holy crap nasty!"

{Read at your own risk}

Went up to check on Scott in the bathroom and asked: "Did you do a poo? Do you need me to wipe?"

Scott: "Yeah, I did a BIG poo and it made me go uump {insert a little jump here}!"

I was laughing so hard I almost couldn't do my job! :D
overheard yesterday:
Scott to EmmaLece: " Are you going to be obedient?"
EmmaLece: "No."

Serious- I have NO idea where he hears these things! :p

Debra said...


I say "crap" and "dang"all the time. It is my weakness. I know, shame on me!!! My kids say it too. Even one of my twins can say dang!!

carrie & troy keiser said...

♣ I figure it's better than the alerternative... until it comes out of their mouth and then for somereason, it sounds naughty! :P

KATE said...

Oh my word, Holy Crap Nasty is so dang funny! I love it, still laughing!
Cute kids, even when they are stinkers!!
My kids never hear ME say things like that. ha ha ha ha

Cecily R said...

I was so excited when I clicked on Bloglines and saw "Scottisms" pop up! I was NOT disappointed! Holy Crap Nasty is my new phrase of the month!!

crystal said...

At least she's got the good grace to be honest about it!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Kate & Cecily- So glad that Scott could give you a smile and a laugh! I was laughing while trying to tell Troy, took two times to get it out straight! :D
Crystal- There's a first time for everything! Most of the time she's a little fibber! :)

Holly said...

Too funny! I think some of my funnest parenting moments are trying not to laugh at what my kids say.

Darla said...

So funny, and isn't it true how it doesn't dawn on you how it sounds til it comes out of one of those little mouths? Then I always wish I could just rewind a way back and quit saying those words so my kids will turn out fine. Problem is, I would have to start all over with the first cause I've always said 'em. Actually, I think with the first two I did much, much better, was more of a politically correct mom. Now, I'm just me... sometimes slipping out with not so good words (same, "crap" and such) but hopefully making up for it somewhere!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Holly- I know what ya mean! Kids crack me up when I'm suspposed to be serious!
Darla- I think that most of us have our little weaknesses and are "hopfully we making up fot it somewhere"! :)
