A few good laughs

Okay so it's been a while since I've posted anything here. But I have been keeping track kind of here a few more recent things that have taken place. Sunday morning: T-Man was trying to grab clothes out of his closet to get dressed for church. He did great. Almost. He grabbed some pants hanging in the closet only to find out that they were his sisters, and placed in the wrong closet by some helpers. And he grabbed a shirt that was really his brothers. So I went in and grabbed him a different pair of pants that were his, and I grabbed a nice white shirt with some light blue or grey stripes on it. He came back to say, "That's not a PIZZA shirt!!" I of course, was shocked, and then realized what he wanted. Duh. A PIZZA SHIRT!!! (One that is mostly red, that's the color of the one he grabbed to begin with, but it didn't fit him) " A PIZZA SHIRT" how funny is that, to say that you want a RED one!! Just this morning Sleeping Beauty was eating her breakfast. She asked Sunshine if she liked Honey Bunches of Oats. When Sunshine said, "What's that? I've never heard of it before." (She's had it A LOT) Then Sleeping Beauty says, "Well it's like this cereal ( A GENERIC) only Honey Bunches of Oats has chunks of goodness in it." Chunks of GOODNESS!! I'd like some of that please...

Where are your hands??

Sunshine was laying on the floor with her Daddy, and had slipped her hand to the inside of her pants. Daddy told her to get her hand out of her PANTS, when she so boldly said, " They aren't in my pants, they are in my underwear" Can't help the innocence of a child now.


I heard Sleeping Beauty just the other night at dinner say this: " Hey Mom, I know how Utahns got their name. " "You do? How" " Croutons" --- Then commensed much laughing. (mostly on my part and DH)

Just this morning Sunshine said, " I think he's (baby boy) is going to be a Penguin" I'm thinking WHAT?? Then she said, " Because he waddles!"

6 years.

The other night T-man kept saying that he hurt. Well once I realized where (his private) I asked how long it had been hurting like this. And as quiet and confident as he could say -- mind you he is only 3 1/2 he said, "6 years" . DH and I just laughed for a little while because it was so stinking funny to us.

Nursery Fun!!

Thomas is just so stinking funny!! I was the Nursery Teacher at church yesturday and the kids were about to do singing time, and when they do this they are sitting on little rugs that are rectangle shape. So Thomas sat on just so -- so that he could bend the edges up around him. He shouted out "Look MOM!! I'm a HOT DOG!" I couldn't stop laughing !!

Popped up

Thomas just cracks me up: This morning, I was taking my kids to school and he noticed that the sun hadn't quite risen above the mountains yet and said, " Mom, the sunset's gonna pop up." and then once he could see it he said, " the sunset popped up!" Then last night at my inlaws he said this when I had him wash his hands, " Mom, what kind of soap is this? Laundry soap?" after I laughed, then he said, " bathroom soap?" This boy just never seems to quit on making me laugh. I love it!!

Dead Meat...

While picking up my kids from a Primary activity today Katherine was stalling and not coming right away. I said (mostly to myself) but Thomas heard me say, " Katherine is dead meat!" and he came back with, " Yeah, she's dead meat, so we can eat her, right Mom?" Plus the other night for FHE we were singing I love to see the temple and there is the line that says , " A place of love and beauty" only Thomas was happily singing very noticeably and said, " a place of sleeping beauty" -- we all started laughing but tried not to make him feel bad.

Some Recent Funny Stuff !!!

****CAUTION :: Reference made to male anatomy -- so read on only if you're comfortable. **** Thomas who is 3 1/2 and is working on going to the bathroom (hopefully by himself REAL SOON!!) discovered that Heidi looked different then he did. Now all he can say is "Heidi has a different penis" And referring still to that region of the body: The other night I was giving the boys a bath and Thomas saw that Ethan was a boy just like him, and when I took Ethan out of the bathtub, he was facing towards where Thomas was at wrapped in a towel waiting to go get dressed and then he said screaming, " AWW Ethan has a PENIS!!" and Thomas proceeded to look down and said, "Mom, I've got a BIG penis"

Thursday, June 19, 2008


I took Ethan to get his belated 1 year pictures taken even though he is 14 months now, and while we were in the studio trying to get the pictures taken, he started 'growling' at the photographer he did it a few times in a row and then she said, " Wo! he's gonna hock a loogie (sp?) at me!" Because that is exactly the sound he was making.

Talk to you later.

I was tucking Thomas into bed last night and was kind of talking with him, and at the end I covered him up and said, " I'll talk to you later" and Thomas looked at me funny and said, in a whisper voice while snickering, " Mom, you said ' talk to you later' " And then he just died laughing. Because I guess I don't normally say that to him at bedtime. So because he thought it was so funny and laughed so hard, I started laughing at him because of him laughing. I guess it's one of those Mother-Son moments that you have to be there to appreciate.

Wrong Feet

We were headed to my inlaws on Father's Day and Thomas has been putting his own shoes on. He happened to put them on the wrong feet. I noticed and said, " Thomas, you have your shoes on the wrong feet!" So he crossed his feet and said, " Now they aren't!"

Monday, May 19, 2008


On Mother's Day last week, Heidi saw the flowers I had in a vase. I told her that we were going to take them to Grandma's today. She came back with, " Why? -- Is she going to die?" I couldn't help but laugh!!

Laugh Fest ---

Okay so I've actually be writing down the funny things that the kids have said over the last few days and here a few more: Just this morning: Heidi had used the bathroom, and apparently didn't wipe or rather make sure she didn't have any pee left on her and slid off from the seat and left "pee wet marks" on the seat. So Thomas was going to use the bathroom next and said," Heidi, you have to point your penis down in the toilet, not up by the seat." I about died laughing. Because in the past few days he's had problems with getting the urine on the seat because he isn't pointing himself down into the toilet. I then told him that " the girls don't have a penis." He laughed and said, "Yes, they do have penises." " No, son. They're different" Then last night: I was opening a birthday card and Heidi was watching me -- there was something inside and she said with such excitment, " MOM!! You got a BLUE DOLLAR!!" ( It was a check) She also said this about our dinner last night: "Mom, I don't like the crust, when it's hard a crusty!!" And no, I didn't burn the crust!! We had homemade pizza. April 19th, 2008 I was grabbing a container of Gerber applesauce for Ethan and Thomas said, " I'm not a BABY! I can have REAL applesauce" April 20th, 2008 "I'm Ready! But I just need to get dressed." April 23, 2008, Thomas: "Mommy, I have a crack!" Pointing to a hole in the knee of his pants. April 24th, 2008 Kaylee was already dressed for school and Thomas piped in with, "No Kaylee you're not SLOW, you're TOO SLOW!"

Belly Crack

Yes so lately, Thomas has been going around and seeing any parts of the body that make a slight crease, and says, " I see your belly crack!!" And then later in the day he said, " there's no more belly crack, 'cause I ate it all!"

I got a 100 !!

When I picked Heidi up from school today, she got into the car and was going through her homework folder and found a paper. She got all excited and said, " MOM!! I GOT A 100!! " I asked, " On what?" " I don't know, .... on a paper!" Then she told me that it was for her spelling test that she took this week. But just to her how she was so excited about a 100 and didn't know exactly what it was for at first was quite funny to me, who happens to be her mother.

I know my name....

A few things happened this last week that I thought were very funny!!! These both happened on Friday March 21, 2008 --- 1st one: We had picked up some chocolate candies that we could give to my niece and nephew that we were going to see just that afternoon. I opened the bag so we could put a few pieces into little cute party bags and then we put the leftover candies into the original bag. I went outside to throw something away or put something into the van ( I can't remember) but I came in my back door and Thomas was holding the piece of chocolate, still wrapped, in his hands and cupping it. I saw that he had it, and he realized that I "caught" him with a piece of candy and then he said, " This says Thomas David Randolph!" and I had to start laughing because of the adage that says something like: "Does it have your name on it?" " No" " Then it isn't yours!" -- He was quite cute when he said that. But then we put all of the chocolates into a Ziploc bag and then while he was holding the full bag, he said the same thing again. How Funny!! At least he knows his name now. 2ND one: I was at my sisters house and we were having the prayer over the food we were to eat for dinner and her son Jacob, age 6, was saying it. He started off and said a few things and then he just went silent for a LONG time and my sister just waited and watched and didn't offer him any help, so I being quite hungry prompted him to say the ending to the prayer. He finished the prayer and then his mom said, "What happened?" Jacob came back with, " I got stage freight!" and then he giggled a little.

Did you wash ...?

Last night after Thomas got his bath he was walking into the livingroom with his towel wrapped around him waiting to get his pajamas on. Chris was laying on the floor and asked, " Are you done with your bath already?" And Thomas said, "yes!" And Chris asked him, " Did you wash your hair ?" Thomas answered, "YES!" Chris: " Did you wash your bootie crack?" Thomas said, " Yes" --- and then Thomas was stading in front of Chris so that he couldn't see the TV program he was watching and Chris tried to push him to the side out of the way and Thomas said, ' No Dad!, don't see my bootie crap!" Chris just died laughing!! ( I don't think I've seen him ever laugh so hard before!)

Tuesday, March 11, 2008


Sunday morning I was getting Thomas ready for church and he said, " Mommy, I want to grow another baby!" --- "Let's grow another one!" I just had to laugh!!!!

Monday, March 3, 2008


March 2, 2008 We had some orange juice out to drink after dinner last night, and with Chris being sick we've been going through it like crazy, so Thomas saw Chris drinking some of it and asked why he was drinking it, and Chris said, " Because I'm sick" So Thomas started making a sound that indicated he wasn't feeling well, and lifted up his shirt and said, "see I'm sick too!" I guess he wanted to drink some juice as well.

Learning My Name

So last night I was tucking Thomas into bed, and he had kind of fallen asleep on my bed with Chris and after I grabbed him up and carried him, kicking and screaming to his own room, where Ethan the 10 month old little brother was already fast asleep. I laid Thomas down in the bed and covered him up with his "blankie" -- he started screaming because he wanted changed into his pajamies since he was still wearing his day clothes. ( when earlier I tried to put him into his jams only to have him scream extremely loud that he didn't want to wear them, and that he wanted to sleep in his "church" clothes.) So finally he wanted me to change him, I grabbed the pajamas and placed them on him, and covered him up and sang him I love to see the Temple and then he gave me a hug and kiss and said, " Mommy, I love you, but I'm thirsty!" I replied with, " I love you babe! - I'll be right back." He instantly said, " I'm not babe!!" I said, " Then what are you?" " I'm Thomas Randolph!" " I'm David Randolph!" and after a few attempts he finally said, " I'm Thomas David Randolph!" The story continues though: So I left the room and kept the door open so I could go get him a drink of water, I got distracted with Kaylee at the computer trying to finish her essay and then I remembered the drink and by the time I got back in the room, he was already snoring and Ethan was still sound asleep.

I have an IDEA

Just today: Feb 22, 2008 On the way home from picking up the girls from school, Thomas says out loud, " Guys, I have an idea!" Then he says this: " Lets go home, put on our swimming suits and go sledding!" And Heidi had this to say later in the day: I was asking my girls where the crepe paper rolls were, and Heidi found the red one. I then said, " Do you guys want to help me decorate tomorrow?" " YES! " --- "YEAH!" "To help decorate her CAR!?" I think Heidi got the "reception" and the "bridal shower" mixed up and as for Thomas --uh, yeah right!!

My sister just recently had her third baby and Jacob, her oldest son who is 6, said this: Mommy you have a gallon on each side!" Of course, she is nursing and the rest is self explanatory!!

We were driving home from Walmart this afternoon and Heidi was looking at her class list for Valentines, and Katherine was quizing her where certain kids names were on the list. She named a few and then asked "where's James?"
Thomas pipes up with: " James is at home guys!" --- Because he got a train engine from Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends -- The red one named James

I of course couldn't help but to laugh my head off !!! Because I knew that he was talking about something else.

Thomas said this to Katherine, " I'll give you money if you give me a dollar" Isn't it crazy how they pick up on what money is at such a young age???

What is this???

Okay so we're at church the other day and I was sitting next to Thomas on the bench and I was holding Ethan. At some point during the meeting I see Thomas taking his pointer finger and "wiping" something on the bench. I saw a little something on the bench afterwards. This was our conversation: Mommy: " was that a booger, Thomas?" Thomas: Just looking at mommy, with a "stupid" look on his face. Mommy: "Thomas, is this a booger?" Thomas: " No Mommy, it's a SNOT!" So of course I wiped it off the bench and asked him to tell me about his "booger" rather than wiping them on things.

Big Hands

January 20th, 2008 Last night Thomas was saying goodnight to Chris and had come up and laid his hand palm down on top of his daddy's hand and then said, " I've got big fingers like you DAD!!" even though his hand is a lot smaller. It was so cute!!

Going Places ....

January 15th, 2008

This morning a few fun things were said, while going "somewhere". It was "early" this morning about 8:30ish. We were driving to SCHOOL and Heidi and Katherine were having this conversation take place as we were about a half mile from the school.

Heidi : "Where are we going?"

Katherine: " To School"

Heidi: " This is a weird way to go"

Katherine: " This is the way we always go, Heidi!"

Heidi: "OH "

And then a little later driving back from the school and we were driving south and the sun was rising up on the east and just above the mountains --- I was pulling up to a light and moved my sun visor to the door window and this conversation happens ---

Thomas: " I don't want that in my eyes" " Put it back there" ( as he points to the rear of the car, up and over his head)

Mommy: " Put what back there?" ( I thought he was upset about the visor)

Thomas: " THE SUN !

Saturday, January 12, 2008

Yesturday we were driving up to drop Heidi off at a Birthday Party and we passed a Chevron station --- While we were stopped at a light Kaylee looked over and saw it and said, " That's Cheveralon, I remember that." I know I shouldn't laugh at my kids but it was just too darn funny.

Tuesday, January 8, 2008


Today I is Thomas's 3rd birthday. So I asked him if he wanted birthday presents. This is what he said, " Yes, from Santa Claus !" Just as a side note: Last night we put him to bed and he kept coming out all through the night, I wonder if we built up enough excitement in him that today would be his birthday and he just couldn't sleep because he was so excited.

Monday, January 7, 2008


January 7th, 2008 Today I was going to do an "aerobic" workout at a local building with some other ladies and I had to take my boys with me. I told Thomas that we were leaving so I could go exercise. He came back with , " We're going to get EGGS??" I think he thought I said " We're leaving so I could go eggercise." Or something crazy like that.

Branded for life

If you chance to meet a frown do not let it stay, quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away, OR (have your sister stamp one on instead. )

Poor little guy falls victim to many of the girls stamping their hearts or smiles out on him.

Heidi had come home from school one day this last week and was able to pick a prize out of the box at school and decided to get this smiley face stamp. Heidi fell victim to the stamp as well. In the top picture you can see a stamp peeking up from behind his shirt --- well Heidi gave herself one as well. Only I didn't think to get any pictures of her.

I think ,,,,

I was in the kitchen washing some dishes, or maybe I had started peeling some potatoes. Kaylee had come in our back door and was taking off her snow boots and other attire, and started coughing. We were on the other side of the door and couldn't see her but could hear her, and then as soon as Thomas heard the coughing sound he said, " I think Kaylee's going to throw up!"
I guess he's just used to the coughing sound right before someone does -- luckily in this case that didn't happen.

Hand Clapping

The other night, Ethan was sitting in his high chair eating on some crackers, and while the rest of us were around the table eating dinner, he made the loudest and longest fart I've ever heard him produce. As soon as he was done with that he looked at us and got a big smile on his face and started to clap his hands. Of course, clapping his hands he just learned how to do this last week around Christmastime. It was funny to witness.
