And Now For an Actual Conversation with a Six Year Old Boy:

Six Year Old Boy: “Did you know that this one time I had a candy cane stuck?”

Me: “Stuck? Like in your mouth?”

SYOB (giggling uncontrollably): “NO! STUCK ON MY BUTT!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!”

Me: “Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww.”

SYOB (in deep, serene, misty-eyed thought): “But it was okay. I farted it off.”

(Tomorrow is my last day being a Nanny to that six year old boy and his little sister. Starting Thursday, I’ll be making a living solely on eBay, selling off all my mountains of accumulated junk until the wedding and the move to Chicago in a couple of weeks. Farting off a candy cane, I swear…. I’m gonna miss those little guys! *sniffle*)

Sounds like my kind of kid!

By the way, the picture you posted is from what I consider one of the all-time best Simpsons episodes.

Scope said...

And his farts smelled of peppermint from that day forward...

FRANNIE said...

Well how else was he going to get it off?

Really. You should know these things. Being a nanny and all. :)

Well he's a practical little effer, that's for sure. No expensive methods for that kid! A little natural wind power and voila!

Heather said...

Wow I just found your blog and I'm way glad I did! Congrats on the wedding!

SkylersDad said...

But really, who among us hasn't had something stuck on their butt they needed to fart off?

words...words...words... said...

Mmm, Gummi Venus. Carved by gummi artisans who work exclusively in the medium of gummi.

wooohoo!! freedom! can't believe you are actually getting the time off!

J.J. said...

Congrats on your last day with the little boogers, uh, I mean buggers! ; ) Kids are too cute!

My niece's "It's a honeybird!" (hummingbird) will always live in my heart.

Cora said...

Some Guy: Y'know, I think the two of you really would get along well. ;-)

Scope: If only!

Frannie: I agree, it was genius! :-)

Veggie: I'm convinced this boy is going to change the world one day. If he had it his way, cars would REALLY run on GAS!

Heather: Awwww, thank you!! *squeeeeeeee!!*

SkyDad: True. And now I feel like an unimaginitive slug for actually pulling that wayward Pokemon sticker off with my hand.

Words: *droooooooool*

Callista: Pfffft! It had to come to this eventually.

JJ: Yeah, I love kidspeak! Like how the six year old can't say "squirrel" yet and calls it "squirler" and how my daughter used to say "Erf" instead of "Earth" when she was little. *snicker*

Very clever boy I say!!

Dr Zibbs said...

I love that Simpson's episode.

Soda and Candy said...

"sweet, sweet can"

Oh crap, I should clarify that's a quote from the Simpsons and not a creepy comment about the little boy.

So you're going to be basically a kept woman in the Windy City? I'm pretty jealous.

Cora said...

Eternally Distracted: He's certainly creative, that's for sure! ;-)

Zibbs: Me too.

Soda and Candy: No, no, no, I'll be working in Chicago. I just anticipate I'll be wiping fewer asses, that's all. WOO-HOO!!!! :-)

BeckEye said...

It's stories like this that make me want kids. And then I go to the store and some brat is crying at a pitch that makes my spine vibrate and I'm thankful that I have none.

Lisa said...

priceless conversations and thank God for blogger so we can all get a chuckle... nothing makes a 6 year old happier than fart and/or diarrhea conversations!!
