Kids Say the Darndest Things

Savannah spent some time with us last week. This is one of the conversations we had.

Savannah (singing): One manaza. One manaza. Do you know that song?
Aunt Dee Dee (that's me for those of you who don't know): What song? The one your singing?
S: Yeah. One manaza. Two manaza. Three manaza.
DD (after much contemplation): Oh! You mean the one by Britney Spears?
S: Yeah!
DD: What are the words you're singing?
S: One manaza.
DD (now laughing): What's a "manaza"?
S: I don't know.

I'm just glad she didn't know the real words to a song called Womanizer.
I was changing Marshall's diaper the other day and he said to me, "I drop a steamer."

He gets that from his dad.
We were out to breakfast with Savannah and she was playing with the coffee creamers by stacking them on top of each other. Then she said to Jesse and me, "Look! It's the Artful Tower."

It was too funny so we didn't bother correcting her.
While camping we were sitting around the campfire with my niece, Bailey. I was talking about how I recently found some old papers I wrote back in Junior High. One paper talked about what I imagined my spouse to be like and the different characteristics he would have. Bailey so perceptively asked, "Did you write down a guy that drinks a lot of beer?"

I guess I left that one out.
Send me your comments and share some of the funny things the kids in your life have said.
