My Child Won't Live To See The Light Of Another Day

Luke came downstairs and grumped "There's just no fun anymore. All the fun went to hell."

He's expected to make a full recovery from the smack-down we laid on him.

I've no idea where he came up with that, but you can bet that he didn't hear it in this household.

Just now it's settling in on us how absolutely hysterical that was. We were in shock for a while, obviously.

Oh man! I can't even imagine how I would react to that. First I would have to pick my jaw up off the floor- then I am sure there be some serious face scrunching and not happy tones (read that as screaming!) coming from my mouth. I'm sure you handled it much more calmly!

Colleen said...

yeah, we would've been hollering...then after he went to bed, laughing

Law Student Hot Mama said...

That's awesome! See, I secretly have a desire to teach my kid curse words so he'll use them in really inappropriate locations and crack me up. I'm a bad mommy.

Melissa said...

Bwhahaha! I would have died laughing after I picked myself up off the floor! Me thinks your little one needs to be reintroduced to his toys! ;)

Amanda (Shamelessly Sassy) said...

hahaha! hilarious. I am running to check out your etsy shop as we speak.

Michelle said...

You mean "marshmallow head" isn't the worst thing Mister Man is going to bring home? I'm crushed.

Thanks for giving me something to look forward to ;) At least he knows what is and isn't acceptable in your house. No worries on that one, right?

Where is the link to your Etsy shop? I'm new to your blog (this is actually my first time ever) but I wanted to see, too!

Love your blog!
Can't wait to read more!

Blessings!

We're dealing with the aftermath of a "shut up" learned from 101 Dalmations, if you can believe it. UGH. Torture to unlearn. Just like the damn it from last year.

Flea said...

Too funny! I'm always the one standing behind my Hunny, laughing silently. Love his shirt. :)

Oh MAN did I just laugh out loud. How embarrassing (for me)!

Definitely worth a "talking to" but I have to say, I LOVE when children say inappropriate things. It is just so funny to me.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

You handled it more maturely than I. I'm sure I would have laughed first then dealt the smack down.

Boys, what will they come up with next. My six year old always gives me the middle finger. Not because he knows what it means but because he see other boys do it at school. He is a school where it it pre k -12 grade. We explain that it's not nice and a really rude gesture. But I think now he does it to see steam come off the top of my head.

I so need to go to your store and order some shirts for my boys. I love the big wheel one, the monster one, the guitar one, and well....I love a lot of them!!

The first time Jock let something slip in front of me.... he was telling me about a giant burrito he and his dad had each had at lunch that day. In describing it to me, he said "It was a big a....." and that was where his voice sort of faded out, and he looked at me with that deer in the headlight look. Coach, ever the helpful parenting partner, took it right up, finishing that thought to me. "Yeah, hon, it was HUGE a$$ burrito! You should have seen it!"

How do you combat it when it comes from them BOTH??

Debbie Yost said...

Ahh, school infulence. The first time MA said God in a way many do but I will not allow I asked her, "What did you say?" I can remember it like it was yesterday. She was in Kindergarten and we were painting the nursery for Diva. She of course repeated and then got in trouble. Brilliant move on my part! She really wasn't in trouble but I explained firmly we don't say that.

We have neighbors who have taught their elementary aged kids that they may swear only when there is no company over. *exhale slowly*

I haven't stopped by in a LONG TIME. I'm a bad blogger friend-- so sorry!

THE MOM BOMB said...

"All the fun went to hell". I love it. I'm going to use that one.

Regarding your last post, I once dropped the kids off at school after they missed the bus, thinking "in, out, why bother getting dressed." The entire staff caught me in my pajamas with Clearasil on my big honking zit.

Madame Queen said...

I am SO stealing that phrase!

I probably would have laughed and then had to backtrack to punish. I don't see how you kept a straight face!

Kellan said...

Oh how funny! I need to use that one as that is soooooo true sometimes!! All the fun went to hell - HA!

Have a good afternoon, Karen - see you - Kellan

caramama said...

I think it's hysterical that he thinks there is no fun there! With all those dogs and horse and siblings and everything? That boy has no clue!

Ranch Mommy said...

Wow, that is too funny!! My kids say hilarious things too and I wish I remembered all of them. Just think in 10 years you can bring this post back out and give him a hard time. It'll be great!!

Fannie Mae said...

"The fun went to hell"? OMG, too funny. I'll be using that from now on!

ALF said...

The fun went to hell? What does that even mean? It's freakin hysterical. I'm also going to use that.

Nap Warden said...

Holy moly...where'd he pick that one up from? We are in the land of spelling everything out right now. I suppose eventually they learn how to spell!

pb&j in a bowl said...

HAHA! I'm afraid that I would have done the proper punishment and then she would have heard me laughing about it on the phone.

Cecily R said...

I pretty sure I would have swallowed my tongue trying not to laugh outloud at that little nugget.

Luke is RAD.

And naughty. That's a bad word Luke. Don't say it again.

Every once in a while I remember to use my good mommy voice. Most of the time though, bad mommy comes out and laughs...

just jamie said...

No way. This is one of the gems I have to look forward to, huh? (Funny stuff though...)

Jen said...

I've been wondering where all the fun went. Question answered.
