Uncle JoJo, What Is That?

I am jealous of most of the other Mom and Dad bloggers. Why? Their kids talk. Their kids say the funniest things…which makes for some great blogging material.

Since Ace does not talk yet, I rely on pictures, videos, and the cuteness factor!

However, I was hangin’ out with my three year old niece, Olivia, the other day when she said something to me that rang the “I gotta write a post about this” bell. Let’s call it good practice for when Ace starts talking…

Olivia On Sit and SpinOlivia: Uncle JoJo, what is this on your arm? (Petting my arm)

Me: What? Where?

Olivia: Right here… (gently tugging on my arm hair)

Me: That’s hair!

Olivia: Where did it come from?

Me: (Trying to think of an answer a 3 year old would understand, I resorted to…) I don’t know.

Olivia: I know where it came from!

Me: Really? Where?

Olivia: The top of your head!

Nothing makes you feel like a crippled old man like having a three year old let you know that you are going bald!

At least she patted me on the top of my old bald head to make me feel better afterwards. 😀

    Oh yeah…those 3 year olds tell it just as they see it! You need to keep her around..you will never be at a loss for bloggin material! You might lose your hair even quicker..but you will definitely have stuff to write about! Good luck! LOL

    – – – – –
    Jared says: Hehe! Yup, she is pretty funny most of the time. 😀

  2. LOL @ Bob – agreed! And they tell you how they see it regardless if your sitting in your chair are in a crowded line at Wal-Mart. 😉 Be prepared!

    – – – – –
    Jared says: I always get a kick out of other people’s children at Walmart. Guess it’s my turn to be on the receiving end of the laughter. 😀

  3. CableGirl says:

    LMAO, oh CableDad is not going to like that one! I’ve got to warn him about it for when MJ starts talking.

    – – – – –
    Jared says: Yup. Ruthless, I tell ya! 😀

  4. Ashley says:

    Bwahahahaahah! Awesome.

    – – – – –
    Jared says: That I’m losing my hair? or that she pointed it out. Neither is that “awesome” from my perspective. 😀

  5. Katy says:

    You’ll be sorry when Ace starts talking!

    – – – – –
    Jared says: Ya I know… The kid is ruthless now with his actions. Throw in smart ass comments from him and I will feel about this big. 😀

    Very clever girl.

    I have talking kids. 12 and 16. I love hearing their opinions – some are clearly from my house, some from their mom’s house, some generational. (Teasing Dad/Uncle never stops.)

  7. Honeybell says:

    Oh that’s funny! But of course not really. Um, sorry. 😀

  8. Jon D says:

    I sympathize – My son’s been takin’ those bald shots at me for a number of years now. Ouch. But I explained to him why it happened. Now when he goofs on my dome, we have this exchange:
    Me: “When did my hair turn gray?”
    Gus: “When you married Mom.”
    Me: “And when did it fall out?”
    Gus: “When you had me.”
    Me: “BINGO! Thanksabunch, now go torment the cat.”

  9. Dette says:

    lol – those 3 year olds. They know EVERYTHING.

    They know how to push our buttons. They know how FAR they can push us. They also know that if Mommy is on a conference call, they can get just about any friggin’ piece of candy outta the pantry.

    Damn them for outwitting me all the time.

  10. Kids are really smart. They put 1 and 1 together to make 2, while we make it rocket science. Funny! Makes me wonder what my 2-year-old really thought about when I shaved my head?

  11. LOL! Dude, kids do indeed say the darnedest things! 🙂

  12. Ouch! Toddlers are vicious!!

  13. Joe says:

    Dude, kids talking is awesome, but when your kids talk it is the best. You are going to flip out. I tell my girls that grape juice will put hair on their chests’, is that wrong?

  14. Momo Fali says:

    My son once told a bald guy (a complete stranger) not to forget to put sunscreen on his head.

  15. JLow says:

    At least your hair is going to your arms.

    Mine is just going.

  16. tanya25m says:

    Sorry, but that was hilarious… 🙂

  17. Kim says:

    Hysterical. The things that come out of the mouth of babes.. you have to just laugh at their bluntness..hahahaha
