The Monday Night Show Asks: What’s the craziest story your children have ever invented?
I told this story to my 9 yr old godson.
He was over the house and complaining about his music class. The teacher was having them learn The Carpenters’ CLOSE TO ME , and he was not happy about singing.
I said to him " OMG, I can;t believe he is teaching you the song I WROTE. He said to me, you didn’t write that song. I told him oh yes I did, so you better learn it and stop complaining.
A few days later, my godson calls me up, and says Aunt Nancy, I told my Music teacher you told me I better learn that song bevcause you wrote it, and he said that you really did write that song!
(saved by the Music teacher with a sense of humor)
The craziest story my son ever told is an entry in his school journal. In kindergarten they had to write a daily entry using ‘ear spelling’ and answer the question of the day. When we arrived at the school for our parent teacher conference, the teacher had his journal open to an entry with the question What does your mom do all day? My son wrote "My mom drinks wine, eats candy and shops all day." I spent the entire conference with a red face. No, it wasn’t true!
Here is the picture that he drew with his entry. This is me drinking wine, eating candy and shopping from my couch. LOL
I purchased my daughter a cell phone because of our varied schedules. Also, there was always something she needed for school and didn’t tell me about until the last minute.. Well, my daughter and two of her friends were caught texting each other throughout classes. Of course the teacher confiscated the phones and we parents were called in to retrieve them. When my daughter was questioned as to why they were texting during class she answered because the teacher said no notes so texting was’t writing notes.
The first week of second grade, I got a note home from my son’s teacher asking me to comment on an essay he wrote. The class was asked to write a paragraph about what they did over summer break. My son wrote that he went to Antarctica and bought a penguin with his tooth fairy money. It was happy living in a puddle in the backyard. We had no pets at the time.
Later that year I ran into another teacher at his school who commented that I must be so excited about the upcoming wedding. After a bit of confusion, I learned that my son had been telling everyone that he had an older sister named Ashley who was in college. She was getting married over Christmas break. I laughed and explained that my son is the oldest child in the family and I have no daughters at all. The teacher said, "So I guess there’s no baby Lulu then." She told me that Lulu was the name of my granddaughter (according to my son).
I soon became very wary of contact from the school — I never knew what I would learn about my family!
Is it too late to enter?
If not, here’s my cute and true story
Since I’ve been buying a lot jewelry the last few months I ordered 2 Collen Lopez Jewelry Boxes. Got them home and loaded them up.
My son saw them and said "Mom I am a pirate too and I need some treasure chests"!!
As a single parent, I worked part time at the Junior College and took classes to become a nurse. One of the classes I needed to take was Nutrition. One day, my 7 year old daughter had the day off from school and I didn’t have a baby sitter, so I took her to my Nutrition class, where there was a "film" about hunger in Apalachia. After the class, I took her to my job before lunch and she spent some time with my friends and co-workers. They offered to take me and my daughter to lunch that day and I greatfully accepted; only to find out that my "little darling" had told them about how we had only had beans and green peas for dinner the night before.
This is what some of the people in the "film" had for dinner and she wanted to go to Taco Bell and played them for everything she learned that day. What??
My son was a real storyteller (still is lol). There were many many stories.
One year he went across the street to visit with my Mom and was telling her about this real exotic butterfly that he had a big love fest with. He was sitting in the grass and this butterfly came to sit next to him, he called it to him and it sat on his hand, he talked to it and petted it.
This story went on for 45 min. He told her all the colors of the butterfly,(the one he described probably doesn’t even come into the U.S. !) the time of day, the weather, what other bugs were around, the size of it.
My Mom totally believed what he was telling her!!
I have no children myself, however whenever I was 6 years old, I would tickle my chihuahua’s ears while she was sleeping. Cookie (my chihuahua) would wiggle her ears, shake her head and go back to sleep and I would then do it again. My mom asked me, "why are you doing that? She is trying to sleep." My reply, "she likes it, mom." LOL… Well my chihuahua paid me back. She licked the inside of my ears while I was trying to sleep. Can you believe my mom let her get away with disturbing my sleep? LOL….. :smileylol:
I went to pick my daughter from school and when I looked at her I realized she had cut her bangs, and I said ooh Veronica why did you do that and she answered Mom it was an accident I was cutting George Washington to close to my hair and I cut my hair by accident , I wish I had a picture of her accidental hair cut. She was in second grade.
At 2 years old my lovely daughter got into my makeup and had it smeared all over her face including lipstick, lip pencil. eye shadow and liner. I was quite upset when I caught her and her response was "Mama, I want to be pretty like you". How can you stay mad at that?
i have no children. i speak only for myself. when i was five years old and in kindergarten, i used to get ear aches all the time. i used to lay my little head on a super large, comfy pillow provided by my mom (or my grandfather), barely able to lift my head up, and i used to look at my mom with my big brown eyes and tell her that, "no, they (my ears) are only a little "itchy" and i don’t need to go to the doctor." well, after trying my mom’s patience, she scooped me up and took me to my pediatrician. it turned out i DID need an antibiotic to get rid of the ear infection. oh, sigh…. i love you mommy!! best to all… xoxo
I gather your son is at that age, Adam? What would your answer be? :womanlol:
While in College they would say I only got one body piercing. I soon
discovered they had several. I told them anymore and I would use a tool
and remove every single one of them. KIDS:womanlol:
