Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

My son is sleeping on the floor in my room and he just sat up and said "I cant take it anymore"
I said "take what"

Him "the crowd"
Me " what crowd do you mean the birds.

He said no the people.
Now I realize he is talking in his sleep so I told the people to leave.
He thanked me and laid back down.


When I was a kid my mom came home from working a double. Before going to bed she asked me to wash the potatoes so she could cook dinner after her nap.

After she was asleep I realized I didnt know how to wash potatoes. I decided to let her sleep and figure it out on my own. I decided that it must be the same as washing dishes.

Fortunately mom woke up and came into the kitchen just as I was finishing and noone ate them.

Re: Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

Sing Kenny Rogers song as 500 children and a crop in the field instead of 5 children and a crop in the field or something like that.

Apparently, I said a lot of funny things as a kid as the adults were always laughing at the things I could come up with!

My uncle used to predict I'd grow up to be an attorney because I was very good at convincing arguments in order to get the things I wanted to have . No, I didn't grow up to be an attorney! Haha!

Oh my goodness, I would've laughed so hard at your son! And thank god your mom realized before everyone ate them... I can't imagine soapy spuds being very delicious.

As for myself... I'm not tall, nor have I ever been. Growing up I was always the short kid who couldn't reach anything and who was too small to fit anything properly. One day I was incredibly excited because I was measured at school and was 4'11". While getting ready with my father to leave for hockey practice, I thought it was important to exclaim my excitement of height, but 4'11" didn't seem like much of an accomplishment. So instead, I happily belted out, "Dad! Dad! I'm almost five feet tall!"

To which he replied, "Oh? And just how tall are you?"

I was so thrilled I proudly chirped, "I'm four foot twelve!"

It's been nearly 14 years since that happened, and every year my family replays it when I visit (I'm the only short person in the family, of course).

I also completely destroyed my parents' bedroom and all objects within it with green permanent marker. I'm terrified to have children and see what they turn out like!

The funny thing about being short or tall is it's all relative.

Growing up I was almost always the tallest girl, till around my freshman or sophomore year in high school.

But on my dad's side of the family, I'm one of the shortest women. Besides my grandmother, my father's sisters are both over 6 feet tall. Other women on that side are also abnormally tall (the men too.)

Re: Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

My son was about 4 years old. We always lived in the country. First big trip we took with him we had to drive thru a large city. He was so excited looking at large smoke stacks yelling LOOK MOM A CLOUD MAKER.

Re: Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

One of my brothers is a chronic nighttime "sleep-talker" and we've had some really funny ones. I'll just post my favorite 3:

First, one night we had watched "The Princess Bride" he had been allowed to stay up late (past his bed time) to watch it. I went to bed an hour or 2 later, I don't think I had a bed time at that point. (Or I just didn't follow it, lol) ANywho, I go into our room to go to bed, and he sits up, opens his eyes ane looks at me, and YELLS:

"DON'T MARRY THE PRINCESS! DON'T MARRY THE PRINCESS!!!!"

Second, similar situation we were camping, and he had gone to bed earlier. I was opening up the tent to go to bed for the night, and again, he sits up, looks at me and yells: "BEETLES! BEETLES IN THE TENT! YOU DON'T WANT BEETLES IN THE TENT, DO YOU? BEETLES ARE BAD!"

Lastly, my personal favorite, we were sleeping in the living room on the pull out couch because our room in the basement was being renovated. (Living room was adjacent to the kitchen, no walls or anything, on the second floor.) So I wake up, and I can see he's in the fridge, I hear liquid pouring, so I ask him to pour me a cup too, and get up to go get it.

Well, I get to the fridge, and he's peeing. Into the fridge. On everything.

I grab him by the shoulder, turn him and yell "WHAT ARE YOU DOING???"

He stops, looks at me, and goes into the living room and picks up the cat.At this point... I don't know what to do.... I'm just dumbfounded. I'm about to go get mom and dad, when he opens the door, walks out onto the porch (still holding the cat) and THROWS THE CAT OFF THE 2nd FLOOR PORCH.

"WHY THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT????"

"He was plotting to kill us!"

At which point he got back into bed, and went back to sleep.

Can't make this crap up, lol

Re: Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

haha, I am a sleep talker when I am extremely stressed and/or overtired/sleep deprived. My friends say it is hilarious. I was mid conversation with a boyfriend, complaining about a manager at my old job and went on to tell him how the manager made people collate and stuff monsters in envelopes for a large mailing. MONSTERS?
I also was talking to my friend about her finches and said 'in the morning I think I will get up early and walk them on the boulevard to wear down their nails.' (like they are large dogs). In my sitting up, apparently awake but actually sleeping state, it must look so funny to my friends.

I don't know if it's due to my health issues or the medicine I'm taking lately but I've been having full on conversations when I've been "alert" but not really awake. Normal conversations, that I have no memory of later on. I went so far to tell my boyfriend to make me sit up and tell him that I'm awake, but even then I'm still asleep doing it!

I'm just glad I don't have any deep dark secrets or information that I might give away in my asleep state! I think I'd make a horrible FBI agent!

Re: Funny things you did as a kid or things your kid did.

A lot of my "funny things" I did as a kid pertained to food. I recall around age 6 climbing on a chair to stand on the stove to reach to the cupboard that contained sweets! Got caught once in the early AM by my stepfather who was not amused. I screamed "mommy!" as he gently placed me on the floor. We didn't have a lot of sugary sodas, but my trick was to fill a glass and replace the missing quantity with water so I wouldn't get caught. Riiiiiiiight! Hated the white part of hard-boiled eggs for breakfast, so I'd peel it off and secretly feed it to our dog Micky.
