Eavesdropping!

Naïve gossip at the train station
Spurred this colorful imagination
“Mom, see those rocking butts?”
“Goodness Amy, are you nuts?”
Mother and daughter, no hallucination!

I forgot something...may I link to your blog? If so, please let me know on my blog.

Some people are particular about who links to them...that is why I ask?

Thank you.

Lovely!

My brother's four-year-old son was with him on a city street (many years ago) as they walked up to a crosswalk and waited behind a Hell's Angel looking man. Big biker guy with tattoos and studded leather. The four year old points and says, quite loudly, "Daddy, why is that man so FAT?!?"

Ahh, children.

My children say stuff like this all the time much to my mortification and dismay! Makes for good laughs later though, I suppose.

Rocking butts, what more could a person ask for? Cute.

Rocking butts? That's really good. Your poem was very fun and lighthearted today.

One day my mom took my daughter (then 4 or 5) through the drive thru at McDonald's when she leaned out the window on the passenger's side and said, "Hey Buddy, move your da@$ truck!" My mom was naturally embarrassed but, the guy ahead was laughing. Hope you have a nice weekend.

I think there could be a thousand blogs filled with all the hilarious things kids say. They're so naively honest :)
