Did your kid just crack you up? Share the fun and pass it on!
My daughter just turned eight. We have a tickling/wrestling session just about every evening after I get back from work. Before initiating a full body slam on her dad not long ago, she warned me, "You're goin' down!"
We moved to Taiwan when she was 3 months old. She goes to a local school and hangs around with her Taiwanese cousins most of the time. Her English is good but not filled with too much slang, etc. It cracks me up when she picks this stuff up on TV and from watching movies and then uses it on me!
My mum was telling me a story about my nephews yesterday one is 5 (L) the other just over a year old(F). She had gone down to London to help out my sister in law because my bro is on a business trip, and so needed the help. Because there is no longer a guest bedroom, L had to sleep in F's bedroom. One night, F woke up and started crying which of course wakes the other. My sister in law takes F to sleep with her. L then goes in to my mum's room and says he can't sleep because he is afraid.
Now my mum is quite a large lady (as she would tell you herself) so she said "OK, but there's not much room in here for you to sleep here".. to which L replied "It's OK, if there is no space you can go and sleep in the other room".
Why the ? I got that last night. And it was NOT a joke. I didn't. I remained in my own bed and brat-features went to his.
Charming indeed. No doubt. At 3:30 am it is a chore, me old matey. Who I'll be seeing on Saturday at Huashan, I hope.
I hope so, but only in the daytime, mind. I've got a night of hotpots and shrieking harridans scheduled with the wife.
My wife had to take Isabel (2 and a half) to the doctor a while back for some kind of check-up. When Trudi (5) heard this she nodded her head sagely and said, "Yeah, I think she needs an injection. And mom? If she tries to run, just grab her!"
Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.
I couldn't understand what the Wee was saying on the way home in the car last night at ALL. Eventually it dawned on me: "Fuck this for a game of soldiers!"
Needless to say he didn't get that off his mum.
hahahahahahahahahahah....................man you're in hot soup if the mum hears THAT!
I wish them all the luck that accompanies such malevolence.

Had a bit of a name mix-up...
Son (7) saw his sister fall over. He said, "Oh, that must have hurt! But not as much as a lot of rogering."
I, shocked and wondering what the heck he'd been reading, asked, "Rogering?"
Son said, "Yeah, you know, throwing up like this (gag, spit, cough)."
I, now somewhat relieved, offered, "Oh, Ralphing?"
Son said, "Oh, yeah, Ralph, that's the name. Ralphing."
Whew. That's all I can say.

My boys on Facebook, 20yo Storm and 15yo Jonah.
I know Storm is referring to a trial he's going through right now, and his little brother knows nothing about about it, but it made me laugh out loud. Five, fifteen, or fifty, I hope they always know they can call Mom.

Classrooms in Downtown Taipei, Neihu and Tianmu
I was at my sisters the other evening. The eldest (7 years old) came downstairs and found only me on the lounge, so I muted the TV and asked her why she was up. She said her mum said should could stay up till 8pm (it was 7:45 at this point). So I started asking her if she was sure she was allowed downstais etc, and she stopped and said to me, "Look, can we have the sound on the telly or what?"
