Lynda Loveland: Kid quips

Posted August 11, 2010

Lynda Loveland

Who needs a comedian when you have kids around.

It truly amazes me sometimes at the things they come up with. My 5-year-old son Caiden is a one man show. One night, my husband was about to tickle Caiden when he says, “Don’t touch the majesty!”

Huh?? Really? Where do they get that stuff?

I bet you’ve got some great one-liners from your kids as well. Please share. I’d love to read them!!

Lynda is the mom of three and co-host of Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM's Bill & Lynda in the Morning. Find her here every Thursday.

    Last week I had been shopping and noticed the clerk had the same name as I did and even spelled the same way and so that night on the way home I shared with my kids the fact that I met someone that afternoon that had the same name as I did and even spelled it the same, so my 4 yr old speaks up and asks, "Was her name Mommy, too?"

    My son and daughter used to say the Pledge of Allegiance "with liverty and justice for all!!"
    When I was a child, I thought Kenny Rogers song "Lucile" said 400 children and they're trapped in the field.

    I have three year old twins and the things that come out of their mouths are hilarious.

    One day I was telling my son about all the different types of nuts that squirrels like to eat. I said "Squirrels like all kinds of nuts. They like pecans, almonds, walnuts..." My son added, "And doughnuts." :-) That's how a child's mind works.

    When my daughter was about 4, we had a 20 minute ride to daycare. We, of course, listened to WRAL-FM in the car every morning. One day she asked me if it was going to rain and I told her, no, it was going to be sunny. I heard some mumbling about sun and rain and then I heard, "and I'm Elizabeth Gardner, in the WeatherCenter." I almost drove off the road!!

    When my daughter was about 5, she saw a portrait she hadn't seen before of me in my wedding dress. "Mommy, when you married Daddy, you were sooooo pretty," she said. And then she followed that up with, "What happened?"

    I still use a term my daughter (now 23 and a college graduate) coined ... I think it is a pretty cool word: Rememberize ... I mean what good does it do you to memorize something if you can't remember it when you need it? You better rememberize it!

    My youngest son, now 7 years old, would sing the song "It's Too Late to Apologize" by One Republic when he was 3 or so. However, he sang it as "It's Too Late for Papa Johns" and he would sing his little heart out with all are priceless!

    My sister's oldest daughter was being potty trained and had one of those inevitable "accidents". My sister, very pregnant with her second child was tired, frustrated and made the mistake of asking her lovely daughter "Honey, when are you going to stop having accidents?" To which, her daughter looked up at her and said "I don't know Mommy. When I get a plan, I'll get back to you."

    My daughter told me once, "Mommy, you are just a popping sensation!". Huh? I will take that anyday.

    I have to say kids are funnier than even Art Linkletter thought. Mothers you can really enjoy your grandkids as you will have more time. My 5yr grandson was a real clown. We had grilled steaks that night and after the blessing was said he said MeMa please pass the Amen sauce (A1 sauce)and to this day it is still Amen sauce we use on our steaks. dpowell
