Yes, But Does It Come With a Wardrobe?

We're driving in the car on the way home from a birthday party this afternoon. I am already feeling pretty good, because, though all the kids there were on the Spectrum, mine are less high-maintenance than most who were there.

We are listening to my iPod and tooling along, when a small voice comes from behind:

"When I grow up, I'm not having a lion because they are much too hard to train."

Because, you know, you can just go to any neighborhood Pets R' Us and buy a lion...

Amazing the things that kids say...and Spectrum kids seem to say things that are even more random than most.

What's the funniest or most random thing your child (or a child you know) has said?

T, who is constantly entertained

I can't think of a really funny one at the moment, but my son says, "That's what I didn't meant" instead of "That's not what I meant". If you think about it, it makes sense how he came up with it, but it sounds funny.

When he was learning to tell time, my nephew looked at a glass of tea with a lemon slice in it and said "Look! It's a lemon-thirty!"

Summer said...

How funny! Mine say silly/funny/odd things all the time, but I never remember to write them down. I gotta start remember to do this.

We were in the car one day, and the child I work with started saying, "It's not a monstER, it's a monstAH."

His father is British. Apparently this child occasionally does speak in an English accent.

It was totally random, though, and he said it several times. :D

Trish: that is silly, but it does make sense.

Summer: definitely, if you don't write it down, you will forget, as evidenced by all the interesting things my now-14 yr old said when she was younger, that I can't recall.

SueBob: Lemon thirty, is that related to wine o'clock? Because that's a time I know.

jannalou: I just love absolutely random exchanges. Sort of a conversation in their heads that we can't hear until the punchline.

After seeing The Dark Knight, my sons listened to their grandfather commenting on the terrible villain. My 17-y-o Aspie calmly said that, "The Joker just didn't like those other guys."

my personal fave is from my PDD-NOS son last night as I walked into the playroom: "Oh, hello, Mom. What brings you here?"

gee, i dunno... laundry? saying hi to you?

the kid cracks me up.

cathy: your son is the master of understatement! I am afraid to see the Dark Knight, because I know how the Joker is supposed to come across and I hear that Heath Ledger nailed it. Scary.

Liv: that is exactly the thing my littlest daughter says to me! It cracks me up, as well. "Oh, hello, Mommy. What brings you here?" I love the "little professor" quality of her speech.
