Runs for Cookies: Three Issues Thursday: [Chuckles]

More often than not, when Jerry and I watch TV, we activate the captions. Once I was a child, I all the time hated when adults would have the captions on–and now I am a kind of folks. Anyway, we all the time snigger after we see the caption [chuckles] so it is sort of turn into a factor between us.

The one motive I named this [Chuckles] is as a result of it gave me some laughs as I went by concepts of what to publish right here. I’m engaged on a Mom’s Day undertaking for my youngsters (sure, I am making them one thing for Mom’s Day). I am placing collectively a easy photograph album of images of me with every of them (they’ll every have their very own ebook, crammed with photos of the 2 of us).

Included within the ebook, I will write out some enjoyable tales about them from after they have been youthful. So, I assumed for Three Issues Thursday, I would share three tales about every of the youngsters that made me chuckle.

(Now that I consider it, I may’ve sworn I did a publish about this before–and after a search, I understand I did! I am sort of bummed; however I am going to select tales that I did not share earlier than. In case you are , although, right here is the hyperlink to that publish: Children Say The Darndest Issues.

(I will write these as I wrote them on the time–most of them have been Fb posts.)


1. As it’s possible you’ll know, I have been working my ass off since August to offer our house a makeover. I can not even describe the distinction, and can publish photos after we do the ending touches (hopefully subsequent week). 

Anyway, I got here throughout this listing that Noah wrote when he was about seven years outdated. He was on an HGTV kick, and was always telling us how “dated” our kitchen was–he stored insisting on “granite counter tops” and and “darker cabinets”. These have been the updates he needed us to make:

paint rooms; new carpet; replace kitchen; new bathroom; new sofa; new chairs; new doorways; new toilet flooring; paint cabinets; new knobs on cabinets

2. [In 2013; Noah was nine years old at the time]

I used to be out driving with the youngsters this morning, once I noticed an indication for a “Poker Run” and occasion. 

Noah: “Mama, have you learnt what a poker run is?”
Me: “No, however I am curious if it is an precise RUN or if it is one thing to do with Poker.”
Noah: “It is when a bunch of motorcyclists go from one bar to a different, gathering a card from every bar; then on the final one, they’ve sufficient for a hand of poker, they usually play.”

Nicely, it is official–my youngsters are grown. Would possibly as nicely retire!

3. [In 2008; Noah was four years old]

Noah is SUPER into anatomy. He even has a sensible skeleton and a torso with detachable parts–you can ask him any of the bones or organs and he is aware of them nicely! Right this moment, he tattled on Eli:

“Mama, I believe Eli simply broke my sternum AND my clavicle!”


1. [In 2009; Eli was three years old]

Right this moment I advised Eli that if he vacuumed his bed room, I would give him a sucker. Ten minutes later he advised me he was executed vacuuming, “however do not go see it”. I stated, “Nicely, when can I’m going see it?” His reply; “After you give me a sucker”

This was from years later; apparently I haven’t got many pics of him with a sucker!

2. [In 2011; Eli was five years old]

My youngsters have been watching Gremlins, and one of many gremlins had 3 cigarettes in his mouth directly. Noah stated, “Eli, look–that gremlin is smoking three cigarettes at one time!” And Eli responded, “You imply he is WASTING two cigarettes?!”  (For the report, neither Jerry or I smoke–I am unsure why he responded that approach! haha)

3. Eli requested me if I needed to go for a stroll in the present day, so after all I stated positive. The 2 of us have been strolling across the block, and I advised him that if he may sing the complete alphabet to me, I’d purchase him a pack of Pokémon playing cards… and if he may determine all of the letters of the alphabet, he may earn a complete tin of Pokémon playing cards. He did not like this concept as a result of it takes too lengthy, so he stated, “I am simply going to avoid wasting up my cash as a substitute.”

I do know for a indisputable fact that he solely has a few {dollars}, so I defined that he’ll must earn extra money by doing his chores. In fact he did not wish to do chores both, so he had one other answer.

“I am simply going to earn my cash from Aunt Jeanie. I am going to simply have her do a scavenger hunt with all the cash on the finish for me.”

This wasn’t one in every of her scavenger hunts (she did many!) however somewhat a sport that they needed to play “sizzling potato” with a present and needed to attempt to open it earlier than passing it on–while sporting gloves to make it tougher. Principally, Aunt Jeanie=presents 😉
