Chatty Snippets from the 6 hour road trip home


BOY: I'm going to marry GIRL! ......... Oh, you can't do that, right?

JCK: No, BOY, you can't do that. Someday you'll meet a lovely lady and marry her.

BOY: I could marry a man!

JCK: Yes, BOY you could.
*****************************

BOY: GIRL, can you name your child "BOY?"

GIRL: Yes.....

GIRL: NO!! I'm not going to be parents. I'm going to be a doctor.

E: GIRL, you can be both a doctor and a parent.

****************************************************

JCK: Next time we come up here... when we get to this winding road, Daddy and I are going to switch seats and I'm going to drive.

E: No way.

JCK: I just can't take being in the passenger seat. My stomach...

E: I get that way, too, when I'm in the passenger seat. ..............I'll get you one of those miniature steering wheels so that you can feel like you're driving.

***********************************
Wafts of what can only be human gaseous delights erupt from the rear...


JCK: Okay...WHO tooted?


PEALS OF GIGGLES FROM THE BACK SEAT.


GIRL: It was ME! heeehheeehahahahagigglegigglegiggle


E: SEE! It's primal. To laugh when you fart.


JCK's eyes roll around into the back of her head....

What fun! Any trip with children that does not involve, "He's hitting me! She's hitting me! Stop it! When are we gonna get there? Are we there yet?" is a raving success in my opinion.

Kizz said...

I'm kind of loving the picture of you in the passenger seat with your extra steering wheel.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Ha--we say 'toot' too :)
And they always laugh after.....

Jennifer H said...

You guys are a hoot! Or a toot, maybe. :-)

That ironwork is gorgeous.

Angeline said...

I laughed at every single chat...but the 'steering wheel' made me roared!

The Mom Bomb, a/k/a Folksy Mama said...

My kids wanted to marry each other, too . . . now they've decided they'll just live together.

Lisa Milton said...

What? No bloody bickering?

That's just the car trip for me...toots and all.

Kalynne Pudner said...

Or they can both marry doctors -- gastroenterologists, maybe.

Welcome home!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Aw! My boy wants to marry his sister too, they are best buds, so cute.
Hope you are having a great week.

Manic Mommy said...

Did the less chatty snippets sound like

Give that back!

Don't touch me!

Mom!!

Don't touch each other!

The thing about the steering wheel?
Hysterical. I got to drive last week when DH forgot his license at home. (Probably in the filing cabient.) It was heavenly.

They are too funny

phd in yogurtry said...

Welcome back! What cute little conversations! I miss those. These days we travel with three kids plugged into iPods and laptops. Not that I'm complaining TOO much : )

the mama bird diaries said...

Sounds like an entertaining car ride!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

"human gaseous delights"

Only you can make a fart sound classy!

Jason said...

I wonder if that would really work. . . the extra steering wheel thing! Try it next time, please.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

You should patent that extra steering wheel thing--it's just the kind of thing you'll see on a store shelf one day and kick yourself because someone else made a million bucks off your idea!

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

So? You and I cannot go on road trips together. We'd fight over the wheel because I get sick too. But wait! Remember those dual-steering wheel cars from Driver's Training? That might work!

Manager Mom said...

I have said it before, and I'll say it again - farting is funny. It's a basic human law!

Madge said...

nothing like a good road trip. i just realized my six year old has stopped saying he wants to marry me.... i'm so sad now.

Janet said...

The Queen is highly annoyed that she can't marry her Daddy because he is already married to me. When we told her she couldn't marry her brother either, she decided to marry Grandma. We decided not to push it.

We have a 6-hour trip coming up next week, and 4 hours the next day. I'll have to bring a notebook along in case there are snippets of hilarity between the movies and naps.

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

It's true. Laughing and farting are both primal. And farts ARE funny.

KEEP BELIEVING

road trips make for great memories!

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...

Oh, these are priceless! Especially the exchange between you and E. Is he saying that the curvy road makes him sick, or your driving makes him sick?
