From the mouths of babes... a contest!

As a participant of the Mommyfest 2008 Blog Party, I am sponsoring a contest!

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling about the funniest/strangest thing your child has said.

The contest will run through Friday, May 16th. Then Bob, myself and a guest judge will pick the funniest.

Scary Announcer Voice: Tell them what they will be playing for...

An original handmade purse! Before I became pregnant with Little Elvis, I liked to spend my free time sewing and designing things like purses. And I thought they would be perfect as a contest prize.


If you can tell, several are made with Bob's old ties. He wasn't wearing them and I thought they'd make neat purse straps. These are just examples of some of the offerings.

The winner can give us an idea of what he/she likes, and we'll go from there.


Most of the fabrics are vintage, many have vintage lace trims and vintage button closures. The bags that aren't made of vintage materials are made with napkins, placemats, or faux fur. Yeah, wide variety, I know.

Good luck! And I can't wait to read the entries!

The funniest/strangest thing my child has ever said was: Bye bye pooo, as I caught him with his diaper ripped off and poo on the floor! He's only 15 months old! It was hilarious cause we know he says bye bye ,but I'm guessing he picked up poo from me , cause I tell him when we are diaper changing, uh oh you pooed or uh oh you peed, LOL

I know it's kinda lame, but my daughter used to say, "all more," when she finished food/snacks/drink -- a combination of "all gone" and "no more" -- margie34@pa.net

Lovely purses, they really are beautiful .

Gosh its hard to think , Eilidh is still so young and its mainly small things here and there . Rebecca is so speech delayed that we have not had many funny sentences (beyond the constant reminder of Eilidh pooping in the bath/cot) .
Rebecca did have us (well me mainly) giggling like crazy the other day when she would run up to her dad constantly pointing at you know where and telling everyone its "daddies pee pee" and yes she done than in front of strangers and other family members.

Wow. Great purses. I'm really impressed with your craftiness. I have no such talent.

For a few months now, Isabella has been asking what certain things "are doing," as in "What sippy cup doing?" and "What apples doing?" It's pretty funny, but her funniest one that's she started with lately is, "What Isabella doing?" She'll say this when she's just just standing there, or reading a book, or sitting in her car seat.

Boy, do I have a funny thing...A couple of weekends ago we were at our Sunday School teachers house having lunch with him and his wife. While we were eating, Kayla (my oldest almost 9) was telling them about how the night before that I was talking about my flabby arms. She told them about me waving at myself in the mirror and calling for my husband to come and look, all while watching the arm fat flap....I was mortified and she thought she was just telling a normal story that nothing would be wrong with telling! Kids!! : )

We moved in December to a house right on the lake. My hubby and son thought it was heaven since you can just walk out the back door and throw a line in. One day while fishing, ds looked and hubby and I said "You know what I want to be when I grow up?" We said no. He informs us "A professional hooker." Now at this point I'm trying very hard not to crack up laughing. So, i asked him what a professional hooker does exactly. "You know they hook fish, Mom. On their fishing lines" while giving me that duh mom eye roll kind of look. Kids can be so funny! I hope this story doesn't offend anyone...we thought it was the funniest thing ever.

I don't remember details, but my daughter once yelled out copulation in a crowded movie theatre. She was reading the words off the screen out loud. It was pretty embarrassing. Glad the theatre was dark. -- jp4161(at)netzero(dot)com.

ooooh,well having been a mom for *gasp* almost 12 years now, I'm sure there's been some doozies. But just last night, dd5 asked me if I'd bought anything for Big bro Anthony - I said yes, I bought him something for his head. She asked "underwear?"

I have NO idea why she picked underwear except to say she is a weird child. LOL Not a hat. Nope... must be underwear.

BTW the purses look awesome :)

Wow...being a mom to 7 and 8 year old boys, I'm sure I've heard a lot. The thing that pops most to mind though isn't all that funny but made my jaw drop.

I was walking through Walmart one day with my youngest, who was probably about 4 at the time and we walked past a butterfly display and he looked up at me, sweet as could be and said, "Did you know that a butterfly comes from a chrysallus (probably spelled wrong.)?"

I nearly walked into another display because I was so in shock that he knew that word or what it was!

This is my baby who wants to be a fireman/geologist (and yes he knows what that is too!)/ninja.

Well my daughter is too young to have "said" anything yet but I can tell of something I said when I was little...My mom says I must have got it off a movie but I had packed my pink barbie suitcase and started walking down the driveway. She said "Where are you going?" And I said "I'm running away" Well she smacked my butt (understandable) and I said "You're a bad mommy dont beat me up!"
