My kids make me proud

Holy Crap are my kids funny!
Sorry for the trash talk, but I just can't help it. My kids are taking after me and I am so proud I could just shed a tear of happiness and laughter right here and now.

Funny thing number 1 that caught me off guard when I realized that my kids sense of humor was just as bad as mine...
Hailey was working on her Reflections project for school and using clay. Kyle asked if he could have some of the black. Hailey shared reluctantly as she thought this was just going to go to waste as she thinks his artistic skills are no match for hers. Little did she know he was making a different kind of art, the art of humor and laughter:)
Kyle came out and said, "Nobody tell dad that this is fake poop, he will think it is Nellie's(our dog) and be mad, don't tell him it's clay okay?"
I thought that was so funny, even more so later, when it really worked as Kyle had carefully constructed it to look just like Nellie's poop near Dan's closet. It was so comical because we have been cleaning up these little surprises in just the place where Kyle left it. I was so tickled as my sides hurt from laughing at this lovely practical joke, definately my style. I was just sad that I didn't think of it first:)

Funny thing number 2 that took me by surprise...
Hailey has had a cast on for about 2 months. Her latest cast was a smaller one that Dan and I ended up cutting off ourselves- (I know, not the prize patients, we were dying to scrub it down and boil her, her arm reeked!) Anyway, we took it off in pieces, because the cast was so dang thick. The last part just slid right off of her skinny little wrist and was her biggest piece of the cast, the rest was in fragments. As I am cleaning the reasty thing up, Hailey brings me the piece hanging and says, "I think we should send this to Aunt Becky for a car air freshener" After my initial shock of comprehending my daughters humor to be up to par with mine, I laughed so hard and said I am game, let's do it. We tied a little ribbon on it, put it in a gift bag and shipped it off with a little note from Hailey about the heart felt gift. Hailey mentioned that if it didn't work out as a car air freshener, Becky could always use it as an ornament for her tree.
My kid is hilarious! She knows how clean Becky is, and how beautifully decorated her Christmas tree is, and how awesomely funny that will be. Also, we have a practical joke thing between us and it was due time Becky had hers. So here it was coming from my one and only daughter. She makes me so proud, another tear almost shed of pure enjoyment as I got the call from Becky laughing so hard when she got her package. Hope you enjoy it Becky!! I did.
P.S. You're it!

That was hillarious!

I am just LOVING Kyle's fake poop! We might need some for our front door mat...that's Emmie's new "spot" so everyone that comes into our house is a potential poop squisher.

I have been smelling that stinky cast smell ever since I read about Hailey's cast...I despised mine when I was her age. I was glad not to be in on that joke... :)

Ok, so I have a couple of those kind of tapes. That would be so funny to get together. Let me know, I am up for it.
