It never ceases to amaze me what will come out of the mouth of a child, particularly mine, at the most inappropriate moments imaginable. Be it burp, snark or something potentially off-color and/or embarrassing, it will be uttered at a volume and pitch guaranteed to send me scurrying under the largest rock I can find.
Then there are the adults; you know, the parents. The responsible party, the grown-ups, the we-know-better-’cause-we’ve-been-alive-longer crowd. Yeah, right. Here are just a few little nuggets (and a few substantial turds) from our vacation…and a few ‘isn’t that just the oddest thing ever’ head-scratchers thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
‘Hey, even Mama would fit in there!‘…I’ll refrain from mentioning the child by name.
No matter how far you may roam, there’ll always be a reminder of home once you get there.
Gotta love the view from our hotel window…dead people truly make the best neighbors!!
‘Heck yes, I’ll have another!’…Mom
‘Do you eat the shrimp’s poop or do they clean ’em out first? And, hey, hey Mom, do they make pepper from roly-poly bugs?’…Paige (I’ll never look at a peppermill quite the same way again…EVER)
‘Look, something else with big guns’…Clint (with a wink…you clever fellow, you)
‘OH, HELL NO, YOU DID NOT!’
NEVER. GIVE. A. MAN. THE. CAMERA.
WE HAVE THE BEST FAMILY EVER!!!
