Life as a fruit salad.

Yesterday, Girl Terror informed us that Daddy is an apple, Mummy is a sweet potato, and she herself is a banana. This was the funniest thing she has ever heard, apparently. It lead to the following conversations, which, unless you are a parent, you never ever expect to hear.

Hubby was changing Girl Terror's butt. Trying to get her to lie still, he said "Be still, little monkey!"

Girl Terror: Not monkey, Banana!!
Hubby: Oohhh. Okay, Banana. I need to peel you so I can change your butt. Here goes! Peel, peel, peel. (as he "peels" off her pants and diaper)
GT: Hee heee! Now EAT ME!!!

Okay, we might be a bit immature around here, but that was seriously funny. In a sick, nasty kind of way. We just hope she never discusses this outside the house.

Later that night, as I tucked her in, I foolishly went with our general routine conversation.

Me: Night-night, love you.
GT: (silence)
Me: (poke poke in the belly) Night-night, love you!!
GT: (she sighs in exasperation) Mummy, bananas don't talk!

Today she must not be a banana, because she hasn't shut up all day.

Oh, that's so lovely and funny! I love that your little Banana would say "Eat Me!" before realizing that bananas don't talk.

Has she told you yet what she is today? said...

Too funny! Kids say the funniest things.

Tish chose me and I chose you as one of my favorite bloggers and you're being interviewed! Your questions are on my blog. (If you'd rather not participate, just say so; it's okay.)

Out of the mouths of babes: that is just too precious. Thanks for sharing this: what a moment!

Won't you be the surprised one when someday her teacher calls and says "Miss Sweet Potato, I would like to talk to you about your daughter, Banana!"

That seriosuly made me laugh out loud. And it reminded me of Haylie when she was small. She said our family was like a "sammich" She was the bread, Mike was the cheese and I was a "big fat piece of ham like a PIG!"

Girl Terror is 2 and a half years old and precocious as anything! By the way, Tammy has never called me "Hubby" in real life. I'm awfully glad.

I just peed my pants a little when I read that. ;)

Oh, because I was laughing, not because of (much) incontinence.
