andrew funnies

For years I’ve been recording funny things my kids have said on my Blog. I even did a scrapbook page once with some Andrew funnies. (Andrew truly comes up with the silliest stuff of all). Here are a few things that have come out of his mouth recently.

On Friday he came home from school and told me that it was “prank” day.  I actually laughed because well, A- the word prank is just funny and B- does he even know what a prank is? And when do these kids plan their so-called pranks anyway?

Andrew: “Mom, today was Prank Day! Tomorrow is Prank Day for table 1.”

Me: “Uh Buddy. I think the prank is that there’s no school tomorrow.”

Kind of hard to pull a prank when your subjects aren’t available, no?

The kids had a fire drill at school recently. It wasn’t a planned drill but an actual evacuation (I think someone burned something in the lunchroom). Everyone was standing outside watching the fire trucks pull in and Andrew said this is what went through his mind. (I really don’t even think there was enough smoke to warrant a big smoke cloud or anything but he has a colorful imagination).

“I saw the smoke puff above the building and then I saw my life flash before my eyes and I thought “I’m never gonna see my Mom again!”

LOL! Uh bud. You were outside of the building already.

Andrew is all abut the Legos. Has been for a few years now but lately, them scattered about my living room floor is a daily occurrence. The only problem with having a big box of Legos around at all times is that Grace frequently dumps them out or gets into the stuff he’s trying to build.

“Moooooooom! Grace dumped all of my Legos out and stole my Lego girl. How much more can I stand?!”

I wish my biggest worry is that my Lego girl went missing.

He wore jeans to school last week and I guess the button was hard to get undone in the bathroom. I won’t even tell you the solution he found to this (hint: It involved leaving them buttoned & utilizing the zipper…)

“Mom, the button on these pants is so hard to do. I should never, ever wear these pants again. They are horrible. HORR-I-BLE! Remember when I was 5 and I had trouble with some pants? Not 5 1/2 but 5? These are THOSE pants!”

Ah yes. Because for a second, a dozen pairs of jeans flashed into my head and then I thought “No, no. It can’t be that pair because that pair he wore when he was 5 1/2.”

Yesterday was his birthday and he was so excited to finally turn 6.

“Yes! I am finally 6! Finally a grown-up!”

He woke up this morning and was so excited that I ‘let him’ wear a long-sleeved button down with some GAP cords (Honestly, he would much rather wear this than a pair of sweats with a t-shirt. You’d think he would want to be comfortable for the 6+ hours he’s in school but he would rather appear that he’s on a business meeting). As I was helping him get dressed he said.

“You know, no one asked me if I feel any different but I do. I feel taller.”

I am so happy you’re “finally” 6 bud. You keep getting funnier (and cuter!) with age. Love you!
