My 5 year old is learning about the differences between men and women/boys and girls. I only have boys in the house and then myself. We use the appropriate names for bodyparts and so I was telling him that girls have vaginas. He misheard an…d now is consistently calling this ‘cavia’s’. We are a multilingual family and Dutch is our first language, cavia in Dutch is a guinnea pig, so obviously I wanted to correct this ‘mistake’.
I took him to the pet store to show him ‘cavia’s’ to let him know the difference. We come to the guinnea pig (cavia) cage and I tall him: “Look this is a cavia” to which he responds loudly :”OH yeah, you have one of those too!!!”
I sure hope no one else understood Dutch there…

    Here’s my super funny story (well it’s funny to me, and people I’ve told):
    I was helping my 2 year old and my 4 year old and baby were over on in the living room. Well my baby started fussing, and then I heard muffled cries, I turn around as my 4 year old starts yelling “I DID IT I DID IT!!”

    The baby’s face is mashed into the 4yo chest, and I said “What are you doing??” As I grabbed the baby from him, and he so proudly announced “I feed the baby!” Yep, my baby is breastfed (well for a little longer, he keeps biting me, and his teeth are almost thru so that should help him to be bottle fed LOL). We had a little chat about who could and could not breastfeed the baby.

    When my daughter was potty training around age 2 and 1/2, she was sitting on the potty in the bathroom with the door open. As I walked by the doorway she says to me, “Mommy. I need a little bit of toilet paper because I have a little vagina. You need a lot of toilet paper because…” “STOP right there!” I said. It made me laugh. Funny, the things they think about.

    So far our funniest moment is when my husband got pooped on the other day – all over his shirt!! :)

    When DD #1 was just learning to walk and talk, I was completing some courses at Uni. We had a baby gate blocking the office so she couldn’t get into things. I was in the office working one day and she was in her room playing. I heard her calling me and she came toddling over, saw the gate closed, pointed at it and said “Oh sit, mummy!” – Thank you granma :P

    when my daughter was 2 years old. It was funny to her but she looked at her Dad and said ” Daddy look at the angry pirate.” My husband however was a little embarrased. She was pointing at a man who had an eye patch.

    Thank goodness the man had a good sense of humour. He thought it was funny too.

    How do I pick just one funny moment!!! My 2 year old wanted cheezies for a snack, I was busy and he came to me with dirty hands. I told him to go get the wash cloth from off the table and I would be right there to help him. Later I found he wiped his hands all over his little brothers shirt. Or when he was playing peakaboo with his boy parts in the bathtub :) He’d hide it between his legs and say “Where is my penis, I don’t see it.” And then open his legs and say “Oh there it is!” Or the other night he had a banana and I thought my husband had cleaned him up. He came over to me and gave me a kiss and said “I love my Mama.” He then started petting me, and saying “Good Mama” (we do this with out dog). I thought he was just being all nice and loving but he was actually wiping banana in my hair. I could keep going. Everyday my son does something hillarious!!!

    Our 5month old daughter amazes us every day. Lately she’s been waking up in the morning and ‘whispering’. It’s so cute! My older daughter especially loves telling people and it makes them laugh!

    My daughter is 4 and a half months old. When she was 2 months old, we went out to see a movie together at a Stars and Strollers event. The movie theater allows us to bring our babies so that mommies (and daddys) can watch movies with other babies and mommies. I was there with a friend and her little boy. My daughter couldn’t stop staring at the little boy – when we realized she was pooping. So I grabbed her and went to change her diaper. She had poop all over her body, even on her face. I had to take a whole pack of wipes to clean her up, change her outfit and ended up missing about 20 min off the movie. Poor thing! When I sat back to finish the movie, my daughter couldn’t stop smiling and my friend thought it was funny. As it was a little dark in the movie theater, I thought I had cleaned her well. When we got out of the theater, my friend asked what I had on my shirt. Well I had poop all over my shirt too, and the car seat was stained. We laughed it out but I tought it was a funny parenting moment – for me!! ;-)

    I know I’m not allowed to enter, because I’m on the Mom Panel, but I have a funny story to share. My sister-in-law will probably KILL me if she sees this though! LOL!

    My 3 year old nephew was very upset when Grampy said it’s time to take a bath. “I don’t want to take a bath.”

    “Well, how about a shower then?”, asked Grampy.

    “No. I don’t like the shower”, replied my three year old nephew.

    “Why don’t you like the shower?” inquired Grampy.

    “Because I don’t like it when Mommy and Daddy play in the shower.”

    LOL! That was one of the funniest stories I’ve heard!

    I’ve always told my daughter that there is no pooping in the tub.

    Well one morning she snuck out of her room and into the bathroom, where my husband was having a shower. She pulled back the shower curtain, and saw my husband in the buff. She obviously is not used to seeing males nude, and her cousins are all female. All I heard was “MOMMY SAID NO POOPING IN THE TUB!” . I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard in my life :) lol

    We had a friend for a sleepover when my son was only about 3 months old. I had just finished changing his poopy diaper in our room while my husband was preparing his bath. As I picked up my babe and supported his little bottom with my bare hand, he decided to have a poop explosion that ended up all over my clothes, hands, and carpet. After having a good laugh we quickly cleaned the poop off me and off the carpet, but not too well since it will have to wait till after the bath (which was getting colder by the minute). We joked that our dog (a pug) would go and lick up whatever remains, because that’s just what she does. During the bath our friend says “ahh…guys I think you should come here (our room)”. When we got there we saw our pug doing the bathroom squat…pooping all over the same area our son just did. Talk about territorial!

    Well a funny moment for our house was when our 2 yr old (5 now) was put down for a nap and I went to check on him and he had painted half of his room with his diaper rash cream. Here we thought he went to sleep right away but nope, he was very content finger painting :)

    My funniest moment was the day my baby born, we were 4 in the hospital room, me,my baby, husband and nurse. Suddenly we herd a very loud special sound, I was sure it was anyone else but not my little one. We laughed a lot, and we still remember how we looked at each other to find out who did that.

    We have a lot of funny moments in our house. But I think the funniest would have to be when my youngest was 1.5 years old and I had baked a loaf of bread and left it sitting on the counter. I went into the kitchen and noticed the loaf was gone. I asked my hubby and he said he didn’t see, and then we found our son hiding behind the couch holding onto the loaf taking bites off of it saying “mmmm bread mmmm bread” and he was totally oblivious to us standing there watching him. :)
