Over the years I keep kicking myself fot not writing down the hillarious things my kids have said so I had a bit of time to write one.


This could be a "had to be there" moment but I've had quite a laugh over it, I'm walking with my wife,daughter (10yrs) and son (7yrs) to his hockey practice from the parking lot when he trips and falls and we ask him if he's ok,my daughter says "he probably has a brain tumor" well my wife immediately says "if you can't say something positive about your brother don't say it at all" when my daughter replies: "ok, It's probably a CURABLE brain tumor"

Whilst teacher training my 7 year old had a teacher free day and came in with me. The maths guy asked the room full of teacher trainees, "now who can explain, what is pye?" and my son's hand shot up, very proud. "you eat it with icecream".

Do you mean "pi" (as in 22/7)? I've never seen the "pye" spelling. In any event, why the hell would a teacher be discussing that mathematical concept with seven year olds (who don't even know how to multiply) in the first place?

I think Southlander was saying that her kid accompanied her to a teacher-training course that SHE was taking because she didn't have school that day, being a professional development day and all.

Although I also kind of wondered why a room full of teachers would be asked if they knew what pi was.

I was being goofy with my 4yo niece when out of nowhere she loudly proclaimed, 'Uncle K, you're a real piece of work!'
