From the Mouth of My Babe {February Link-Up}

Thanks to those of you who commented and linked-up back in January; I hope to read even more funny stories this month! I'll keep the link-up tool open all month, so you'll have plenty of time to share.

How it works:
1.  Write a post on your blog about something a child in your life has said - funny, silly, cute, or profound! It would be great if you included a link back to Signs of Life so that others can read along and join in, too. (If you don't have a blog, feel free to leave your story in the comments section of this post!)
2.  Enter the needed information in the link-up tool at the bottom of the post.  Click "Submit Link".
3.  Be sure to put the permalink (post-specific link) in the URL spot, and not your general blog URL.  Using the permalink will ensure that other readers find your post!
Remember: Those of you who view this post in a reader will need to visit the actual blog to see the link-up tool and linked blogs!

Now, let's laugh...


Ethan, my sister, and I were walking around the mall one afternoon after Jessi had given him a hair cut.  Ethan stopped in front of one of those calendar kiosks and began admiring the Angry Birds and Hot Wheels calendars.  He made up his mind that he really wanted the Hot Wheels one, but there was only one problem...

Joye: Well, do you have any money to buy it?
Ethan: Yeah, I do.
Joye: Really? Where is it?
Ethan: It's in your purse!

Nice try, kiddo! Of course, him not having money of his own is no problem at all as long as his Aunt Bubbie is around!

Then, there was this one a few days later as Jeramie, Ethan, and I were sitting around the kitchen table:

Ethan, digging into his ear: I have a wak in my ear.
Jeramie: A rock?
Ethan: No, a wak!
Joye: You mean wax?
Ethan: No, it's just one! .. A wak is a thing that lives in your ear, too.  And when you put another one in, it's wax!

No worries, Ethan - the English language stumps us all sometimes!


Your turn!
