The start of the 2008 funnies

Several months ago, I did a few posts on some funny things that Colin had said recently. (If you missed them, you can check them out on the favorite posts sidebar!) I don't know why I stopped posting those sorts of things--it certainly isn't for lack of him saying things that are down right hilarious.

Two examples from the last several days:

1. (Disclaimer: if you are grossed out at potty-training stories, skip down to number 2!)
Cameron has been working very hard on potty training. We sometimes reward him with treats if he 'goes' on the potty. A couple of 'date nights' ago, my mom was watching the boys and Cameron told her that he had to go potty. She of course took him, sat with him, and wiped him; then began the clean up process. That's when little Colin appeared at the door. He came into the bathroom carrying not one but two treats.

My mom then says to Colin, "What are those for Colin?"

He replied to her, "Well, this treat is for Cameron, for going poo-poo on the potty; and this treat is for you Grandma, for wiping his buh-butt!"

2. Two days ago, I noticed that Cameron's fingernails were in terrible need of being clipped. I mean, they were long. I usually clip all three of the boys (fingers and toes) all at once, so I started with Ethan, toes and fingers, then did Cameron, toes and fingers. Colin unfortunately has picked up the habit of chomping on his nails, so I usually don't ever have to cut those. I just sort of skipped right over him, and of course, he took notice.

"Mommy, aren't you going to clip my nails?"

"Colin, you bite your nails. You don't need mommy to clip them--you have nothing to clip."

"But my toes are really long. You better check them."

So, I did--and they were even longer than Cameron's fingernails had been! It was awful, I was truly embarrassed that I had let them get so long. I don't know how I didn't notice! And, I felt bad for Colin--I knew that couldn't have felt very good in shoes.

So I said to him, "This is really bad Colin-these are sooooo long!"

And he says, with a smirky-smile on his face, "I told you that you should check them!"

"Have these been hurting you at all?"

"Well, not too bad....but they do scrape in my shoes sometimes."

Poor kid. I felt horrible! I got done clipping, set him down off of the bathroom counter, and he says:

"Man, that feels so much better--I can finally walk on my tip toes again!"

He never ceases to make me laugh....I'm sure there will be more funnies soon!

On second thought we should publish a book or something!
