By Elizabeth P.:::: I asked a few of my favorite moms and aunties to share some “Kidcidents” to kick off our week. Here’s what’s come out of the mouths of their babes:


Nicole, business owner and mother of Max, 9

“Max refers to eye boogers as ‘mail’ even at age 9. He says they are delivered at night when he is sleeping.”


“He said he was going to ask Santa for me to be 30 again so I can have kids. Then he asked me if we can adopt and if the kids are in cages like at the puppy place.”


“In Max’s 1st grade class I taught junior achievement. The kids had to draw a picture of their career. One drew a war scene, and when asked which branch of military he wanted to be in, he said it didn’t matter as long as he kicked the Russian’s butts. Two girls were drawing pictures of hospitals. I asked if they wanted to be doctors or nurses and the one girl says to the other ‘You want to be a doctor. Nurses have to clean human feces.’ I did not ask her how she knew that! I had so much fun that day.”


Liz, teacher and mother of two sons, Jeremiah and Joshua


“Joshua wanted a root beer, and ordered a ‘beer’ from the waiter, who gave Dan and I the dirtiest look until we explained that he meant ‘root beer!’”


“When Joshua was 2, he was sitting on the toilet doing his business and screams at the top of his lungs: ‘Mommy, I NEEEEEEEEEED you!!!’ I come running in only to have him say sweetly, ‘I need a hug!’”


“One of my 3-year-old preschoolers who’s arm fell asleep asked why his “bones were fizzy.”


Jenn, auntie to one, nanny to many

“The kid I nannied for asked me if I was alive during the Renaissance.”


“My nephew once asked me if the subway was part of the Underground Railroad.”


Jessica, teacher and mother of twins Logan and Ella or “Loganella”


“Logan asked me if the ice cream truck man could live at our house and feed the purple monkey that lives in our tree.”


“And Ella once told me I was a naughty mommy for waking up daddy (it was noon!). She said I needed to go in time out!”


“Ella is really into the crab from The Little Mermaid. She talks about it nonstop: ‘Do you like crabs mommy? Does daddy like crabs? I like crabs.’ Stephan finally said to her just be glad you don’t have crabs. She replied, ‘Daddy, silly daddy, I would love to have crabs!’”
