Kids say the darndest things

This is a conversation that Lexi and I had today after school:

Lexi: Mom, you have to promise not to tell anyone.
Me: Okay, I won't tell a single soul (crossing my fingers behind my back as I sense an excellent bloggable moment coming on - besides, I really do think she just meant don't tell Vicki, 'cause it's fun to keep secrets from your sister, especially when she's sitting in the same room)
Lexi: (whispering) I have a boyfriend (giggle)
Me: Really? (also whispering, of course) What's his name?
Lexi: Forrest. (more giggles - he must really be something)
Me: Hmmmm...what do you do with your boyfriend?
Lexi: (backing away slowly and no longer whispering) Weeeeeeellllll...I don't reeeallllly remember...ummmm...I have to go now...

I will get to the bottom of this.

Also, on a significantly less terrifying note, here's a funny thing Ellie said yesterday right after she coughed and/or sneezed with a mouthful of milk: "Uh, oh, Mommy. I bless-you'd and made a milk mess."


  1. LOL!!!! Don't you love the things that kids say? I love Ellie's "bless you". Oh and good luck on the boyfriend thing. Noelle still doesn't like the boys in her class so I think I am safe for awhile!

  2. Oh my scary.

    I eagerly await further reports on the mysterious Forrest.

  3. As long as his last name isn't Gump I think you could be okay. I still remember in kindergarten I had a crush on a boy named Brigham. I got in trouble for poking him a lot. Good luck with that I await further updates.
