Too funny not to share.....

The Scene: Me, driving my two kids to the doctor for a follow up on Gabe's asthma. Realizing I forgot my check book.

Me: Bad word that no Christian mom should say in front of her kids.

Laney: Big shocked eyes looking at me from the passenger seat.

Me: Sorry Kids, Sorry Lord, for my potty mouth, thank you for dying for our sins.

Laney: Looks a little less horrified, did I mention she is my prudey child?

(I realize I am ok because I still have my planner with everything I need in it. But realizing we have another problem because we are already late and I turned down the wrong road.)

Me: Oh shoot, I went the wrong way, what am I retarded or something?

Laney: (in a very serious, deadpanned voice) Yes Mom, sometimes I honestly think you are....

Me: Laughing hysterically

Laney: Why is that so funny?

Me: You really believe that don't you?

Laney: Yeah, but don't tell Dad, he will get mad at me.

Me: Why don't you think I will be mad at you?

Laney: Because you know you are retarded sometimes.
Dad is more serious.

I am still laughing.........

I love it! Kids put it so well sometimes (even when it's insulting to us). You can't do anything but laugh.

Wow. I don't know if I am ready to have offspring. Guess that's why God hasn't given us any...huh?

That is really funny! Must be interesting to have kids... never know what they are going to say.

What I forgot to mention, is she also my child that has the hardest time staying focused for more than two minutes herself! :)
