Make Me Laugh Monday

As you know
I like to record things
the kids say so that they
can go back and read it 
one day.

Here is our girl
that I call
Literal Little Lulu.
She is the child that takes
things very literally.
For instance.....
She is riding along in the car with Mom.
The radio is on and Mom is flipping 
through stations.
Mom pauses for a few moments on
a Christian radio station.
The preacher says.....
Except for God we are but dust.
There is silence in the back seat
for a few moments.
Mama, Lulu offers.
Yes, honey?
Mama, you know what that guy just said?
Yes.  What about it?
I was just wondering......
WHAT IS BUTT DUST?

Don't ya love it?

Diana, I have a journal I record the funny or unique things that my g.kids say also. I love that "butt dust" question, don't know how your daughter drove after being asked that.:):) I would have laughed till I was crying.xoxo, Susie

Musings from Kim K. said...

Definitely precious. We're taking a trip out West this summer. Josie was wondering just how big and noisy those canons were going to be in the Grand Canyons. Happy Monday!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

That is a good one Diana!
I was telling little 2 year old Addison about being in her Mommy's tummy.
She looked at me, big eyed and all and said, "My mommy chewed me"?
Omg, she is only 2!!
Hugs,
Cindy

Donna said...

Too funny, Diana! I needed a good laugh to start the day! Sounds like Miss Lulu gets her literalness (is that a word?) from Your Hero:)

Patty Patterson said...

I guess that just about sums up how important we are. Now, don't the egotistical types look pretty silly. LOL

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, You have to love what comes out of children's mouth. They are so much fun. You can always get a laugh at them. My youngest wanted to wake up his uncle this morning so he could tell him goodbye and that he would see him later. Have a wonderful day. I am off to get my turn signal fixed. The bulb is out. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Oh my gosh that's too funny. I would be very thankful no liquid was in the mouth of the driver! I would have spat surely. She shares her name with my sweet baby boston terrier. Good name! Hugs. Tammy

Cranberry Morning said...

I think her theology is right on. Except for God, we ARE butt dust! :-)
How funny is that. I remember the little kid who heard the hymn 'gladly the cross I'd bear' and heard 'Gladly, the cross-eyed bear' :-)

Girl, if you can ever keep just one memory of this wee little gal I will bet it will be this one!
Your advice on the furniture was really appreciated!
But believe me they were so amazingly easy with us about it all. It was truly a God thing.
We ended up getting to brown leather chairs, very soft and very comfortable. I hope to post a picture soon.
Blessings, Roxy
