Love Thursday: Nuts!


Happy Love Thursday, all!  One of the things I love most about having kids is never, ever knowing what’s going to come out of their mouth next. The kiddos crack us up every day, but there is one time about a year ago Scorch left us speechless.  I never want to forget it, so I thought I’d share it here…

After a long day, the Hubs, Scorch and I were in the bathroom while the Hubs was giving Scorch a bath.  In the middle of  chit chatting about our day, The Hubs asks Scorch to stand up so he could wash his belly.

“And my nuts?” Scorch asks.

“Whaaat?” the Hubs asks as I stand there with my mouth on the floor.

“Are you going to wash my nuts?”

The Hubs immediately loses his mind, hides his face in his arm and turns beat red trying not to laugh out loud.

I reganed my composure & asked Scorch to repeat himself one more time. Mind you, Scorch was only 3 years old at the time so I didn’t think he knew what nuts was slang for (hell, he’s almost 5 and still doesn’t know!), but he was going to school and lord only knows what he may have overheard. 

Scorch  repeats the same thing.  By this time, the Hubs has just about burst a blood vessel because he’s silently laughing so hard and had to excuse himself from the room.

So I ask Scorch to show us his nuts just to confirm we were all on the same page. 

The sweet kid points to his stomach and goes “You know- the nuts I had for snack that are in my belly.”
OHHHHH..those nuts! Thank GOD!

  1. Awww, nothing like a good homemade-story to send me laughing-out-loud during class.

    I can’t count the times my Mom has told a story about me when I was younger, when I walked over to her and asked her:
    “Mom, can you put the watch on my penis for me?”
    “Can I what!?” she yelled shocked.
    “You know… my penis” As I pointed to my wrist and everyone in the room laughed.

    Kids are hilarious at times, and it’s a good idea to blog about the funny moments in life, just to make sure you never forget.
