Kids Say The Darnest Things!

"Daddy, be a MAN!!! You can do it"

That little gem above came out of web-princesses mouth this passed week while playing a friendly family game of soccer in our backyard. Web-prinecss and DH were a team, and Superstar and I were a team.

The kids were acting as the goalies and DH and I were running, grasping for air, trying to keep the ball a way from each other. Web-princess got a little excited and started to shout words of encouragement to her teammate! As soon as she started to shout at DH to be a "man" I started to laugh! It was so funny, just the way she said it!

But I didn't totally lose it until Superstar started to yell at me:

"Come on Mom! You can do it! Be stronger then a MAN, be a WOMAN!"

As soon as my darling son, Superstar, started shouting that at me I collapsed to the ground with laughter! Both of my kids just had me in stitches! Kids to do say....

Speaking of in stitches, the following may be a little to much info, but it was just to funny not to share. So Saturday Morning we meet up with my FIL (father-in-law) for breakfast. The restaurant we met him at is a part of a shopping center, grocery store, hair salons, hardware stores etc.

In the course of our meal at the restaurant I realize I'm in need of some feminine products, so as we were walking out of the restaurant I tell my DH I'm going to go to the the grocery store right there to get the feminine products (pads) that I need. I walk into the store; a store I do not shop at, so I'm not familiar with the layout. I walk in with a mission to get out as soon as possible.

I find a row of items that I believed to be feminine products. To be honest, I didn't really look at the packages. I was just trying to get in and out, seeing my family was waiting in the parking lot, we had plans to go mini-putting so I didn't want to keep them waiting.

I grabbed a small bag of the generic store brand. I just wanted in and out. I didn't really pay attention to what I had, after all I'm 30 and surely I know what a box/bag of pads are! So I grab them, bought them, got in the car, and we proceed to drive to the mini-golf place. During the drive I open the bag. I was going to pull one out to put it in my purse so I can take care of things as soon as we got to the mini-golf place.

DH, said to me, didn't you do that in the store? And I explained no because you can't take merchandise into the bathrooms etc. I told him it's okay as soon as we got the mini-put place I will go to the bathroom and take care of things.

So I still haven't looked at the package, I open it...and say "That's odd! They're not individually wrap?". I then also realized they are much larger then what I'm use too, but it's some generic store brand. It still hasn't registered with me that perhaps I have the wrong type product.

DH take the package out of my lap to read the label! He then exclaims, "Nikki, these are depends for MEN! Didn't you read the label?" I just started to laugh so hard that I couldn't breath or talk! So the only thing I could do was shake my head no in response to my DH's question.

The kids were wanting to know what was going on and DH told them, "Mommy didn't buy pads she bought men diapers."

After seriously debating if I would use these or not, (I have pads at home, I just needed something while out), I decided that I can't use them so I had to ask DH to stop at the drug store on the way to the mini-golf place.

I have added some updates to the post about Ryan, the latest update is an email from Mary Ellen, Ryan's mom. My heart goes out to them as they grief the lost of their son. Mary Ellen express that it's hard on everyone right now, especially Ryan's siblings. Please Keep Mary Ellen and her Family in your prayers.
