Stuff My Kids Say

They should have had teenagers on that show "Kids Say The Darndest Things." Teenagers can say some of the most insane, unbelieveable and dumbest things EVER! Yes, I said it DUMBEST!

A few nights ago, Katie sent me a text after she had gone to bed. She wanted me to come back there and tuck her in. She may think she is all grown up but she still wants her Momma to tuck her in.

Anyway, she sends me a text and my husband sends her one back.

"What are you doing texting at 2300 hours?"

She responds with "What are you talking about? Its only 11:03?"

My former Army brats have completely forgotten the military time clock

All I hear is my husband rolling with laughter.

She finally remembered what he was trying to tell her. And did the typical teen girl thing of "Ohhhhhhh! That's what you mean!"

My husband has only talked in "military time" since they were born and its the only time he talks in. There is no "I'll be home at 6 pm." No, it's "I'll be home at 1800 hours."

Stay tuned for more gems from my teens. From my youngest telling me she wouldn't smoke pot to what my oldest thinks happens when you have sex. The gems just keep on coming.

It is like once they got past the age of ten all common sense and logic was sucked out of their brain. I look at my 11 year old sometimes and think did you really just say that?????

Hi! My son is 12 and reaching his teens. I've always wondered how it's like to manage a teen. Sounds like it's going to be joy and pain :) Thanks for the sharing, I will definitely come back. Thanks for following my blog too!

Hee! My eldest is 12, but she still wants me to "tuck her in" and I have a sneaking suspicion it will continue well into her teenage years!

I love this! I've got a teen of my own, so I find the things they say hilarious. And I'm looking forward to the other gems! lol

I have the teen years to look forward too. My kids are 5 and 7 now and they are already saying some crazy stuff.

We should write a show on TV about "Bleep" my kids say instead of the One about what the dad says.
