Bird Brained

Walking in the house after school...

Darren: "I just saw a female cardinal! She was brown."

Sarah: "Cardinals are red, Darren."

Darren: "No, Sarah. Female cardinals are brown, and the male is red. Isn't that right, Mom?"

Sarah: "Darren's right, Sarah. The male is the red one, the females are all brown."

Darren: "I saw the female and a male together."

Mom: "Maybe they were husband and wife birds."

Darren: "No, mom. They were mates."

Sarah: "Really Mom, birds don't know anything about marriage."

I stand corrected.

That is laugh-out-loud funny stuff!! They do have a point though. I'm afraid of the day my kids realize that if I take away outings as punishment that it is equal punishment to mom/dad. On that day they will have overthrown the in-house government.

I love what kids say...i have been doing an interview with my kids, stay tuned, it will be a series soon. Maybe I will post all the questions first for those who want to play along.

Sorry I missed your Way back Wednesday. I have been out of it with sick kids, and behind in life...

So I wonder what those birds do in bed together?

Missy said...

I enjoy reading your blog because of many reasons but one of the reason is your two are so funny plus genius smart. That combo makes for great stories!!!

I can never get my head around the fact that in nature, the females don't bother to get dolled up. It's the males that put on the make-up. I would love to not have to struggle to remember to put on lipstick every morning!
