30 Days and 2 Years Probation

SETTING:  Driving around in the minivan, having to do errands with Baby E. Baby E has had it. This is our last stop with errands for the day.



Baby E:    Mom, will we be done with our errands soon? I wanna go home.

Mom:      Yes, Baby E, I just have one more stop to make, and I have to do it today.

Baby E:   Can't we just go home now?

Mom:      Baby E, this is super important, and your dad asked me to do it for him today.

Baby E:   Alright. Can I get a popsicle there? Is it a place that has popsicles?

Mom:      Yup. You can have one. OK, here we are, let's run in and hope they have what your dad needs.

Baby E:     What does he need?

Mom:        Just some legal envelopes.

Baby E:     Whaaaaa.....?????! Do all dads ask for those???!

Mom:       Well, not all dads, just the ones who use them.

Baby E:    Why does dad need to use those???!!

Mom:       Cuz those are the kinds he uses. Now, why are you getting so upset?..let's go....

Baby E:    Do other moms get this kind of stuff for the dads??!

Mom:       Sure, all the time. Let's run in now...
 
Baby E:    I can't believe dad would ask us to do that!!?

Mom:        Baby E, what is wrong??? Why are you crying?

Baby E   I don't want to go in with you!!!

Mom:       What the heck is going on??? You know I can't leave you in the car....

Baby E:    Mom! just call him! please!........  maybe he'll let you get the legal ones!
 
Mom:      Oh, baby e, come here, honey...I said LEGAL envelopes, not ILLEGAL...come here, baby, now shhhhhh....

  24. Aww poor little guy. A similar thing happened to me when I was very young. It was toward the end of the Vietnam War and the tv always spoke about guerrilla warfare.... for the longest time I thought they were talking real guerrillas! I would freak at the mere mention of the zoo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cute! And I love the photo at the end.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh my, poor baby E...for a minute he thought his parents were totally going to the slammer! Kind of a cute reaction though...I hope he got TWO popsicles for the little added trauma on that errand:)

  38. So funny! These kinds of misunderstandings crack me up. Especially when they don't involve kids and they have dirty connotations.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, BabyE. So sensitive and sweet. I guess you don't have a sidekick in him if you ever have to break the law. Like Jay-walking! Haha

    ReplyDelete
  40. So funny! The first time I flew on an airplane (I was probably 5), the flight attendant said that all first-time flyers get a pair of wings. When I heard this I started bawling and my mom was like WTF? And I was like, "if they give us wings does that mean we have to jump out of the plane?" My mom laughed hysterically and then the flight attendant brought these little pins that were in the shape of wings and put it on my shirt. Oh, kids...

    Oh and I guess I'm supposed to say I found you through the Tea Party thing. Love your blog!

  42. LOL. Poor kid, no wonder he was so upset! Nice story.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Poor little dude. This damn near broke my heart. Of course that had something to do with falling off my chair onto the floor, but still.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Too funny!! Kids are just hilarious.

    Here's a funny one...whenever I say pupil my 9 year old gets all wide eyed. He, for some odd reason unknown to me, was just sure that is another word for a lady's..ahem...nether region!! He knows what it is...now...but it still makes him giggle!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  59. They make the illegal kind? Are they the big magenta ones with the tab?

    ReplyDelete
  60. ummm....I think perhaps you entered the wrong post for "Not" Mom Of The Year. You really need to stop mumbling... it is frowned upon in Empress circles. Poor Baby E.

    ReplyDelete
  61. LMAO! Now that is funny and I might have to try that with my kids!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Ah, the world through the eyes of a child, lol. too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love that he's still so concerned with the safety of the family. It would be a real bummer to get pinched over envelopes.

    ReplyDelete
  64. that was sweet and funny all at the same time...LOVE it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. At least you know you won't be bailing him out anytime soon! Congrats on Not Mom of the Year!

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is absolutely precious!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Aw...the poor baby...that was sweet! It's nice to know that our boys, even though they like to be naughty so much of the time, really do care about wrong versus right. Baby E reminds me so much of Fred...even down to the popsicles :-)

    Congratulations on such a big readership, Alexandra!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Now I'm curious- what ARE illegal envelopes?

    ReplyDelete
  69. I've received illegal things in envelopes before, but I don't think I've ever had an illegal envelope on its own...

    ReplyDelete
  70. That's just so funny! I can just imagine how scared Baby E is --- all for just a legal envelope. lol!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Awww, that is soo cute!

    I love the things kids say. Once a girl was with her dad and said, "My mommy and daddy got divorced and now daddy has A LOT of girlfriends."

    The dad went red.

    ReplyDelete
  72. So sweet. Kids are fascinated with jail, aren't they?
