Conversations with my Kids

kids humor, conversations with my kidsI’ve really enjoyed J-Money’s ‘Financial Overheard’ series. If you haven’t checked them out, you can find the three installments here, here, and here.

I liked the idea so much that I thought I’d adapt it for the purposes of my blog and bring my readers some of the conversations that take place in my household. Hopefully you’ll find these conversations as entertaining as I have.

Breakfast Conversation

* There was absolutely no context for this response. They hadn’t been talking about or playing pirates at all before he said this.

Conversation from the middle of April

Note: My 6 year old tends to repeat words when he gets excited.

If you don’t have boys or boys that have reached this age yet, you should understand that anything involving bodily functions is the epitome of humor at the moment.

At the Ice Cream Shop

A few days ago we went to get ice cream and my 6 y/o’s ice cream cone had a paper wrapper on the outside. He removed the wrapper, but little shards of the paper remained stuck to his cone.

Conversation from the Backseat

This conversation took place while I was driving my kids home from school. If you follow me on twitter you may recognize parts of it. Occasionally I tweet random things my kids say.

The Drama of Cutting My Sons Finger Nails

I’ll wrap up with a few humorous comments my 7 year old made when we attempted to cut his finger nails. In fairness him, he normally isn’t that bad about getting his nails cut. However, this attempt came after his grandparents had visited for the weekend and he didn’t get as much sleep as he normally does.

After my wife’s attempt to cut his nails resulted in hysterical crying, I offered to take over. He continued to cry as I cut his first few nails, so I let him know that I could have his mom take over again:

After he settled down a little and we got through his first hand:

And finally, when I was done cutting his nails:

Well that does it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my day to day interactions with my kids.

I’d love to hear from you. Is poop the funniest word in your household? Feel free to share any funny conversations you’ve had with your kids in the comment section below:


  1. Ok. These were hilarious. Thanks for providing me with some laughs before I leave work.

  2. HAHA!

    My 1 year old acts silly which is awesome, but I have to admit I am ready for these types of conversations. I hope to write them down like you have.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeah, it is crazy how quickly they build their vocabulary. Your 1 year old will likely be quotable in a few short months! I wish I had written more stuff down when they were younger. Enjoy it!
