My Kids Make Me Laugh – Diary Version

My Kids Make Me LaughMy kids make me laugh.  Sometimes I just can’t help it.

This past weekend, GoGo had me in stitches, and he couldn’t understand why.  No matter how I tried to explain it, he just couldn’t understand what I found so funny.

Watty is in third grade.  For the past week or so, he’s been devouring the whole Diary of a Wimpy Kid series of books.  He and his brother have watched the movies.

This past weekend, we were all shopping together and one thing on my list was to buy the next book in the series.  GoGo was with me and Watty was with my husband.  It was the whole “divide and conquer” thing at the big box store.

I grabbed the book off an end cap as we passed by and just kept walking.  When we bumped into the other half of my family I heard this

GoGo:  Watty!  Look!  Mommy got you more diarrhea.

Watty took the book that his brother was handing him and looked at it critically.

(my husband and i are both looking at each other and cracking up.)

Watty:  Mom, this is the wrong book.  This is book FOUR.  I need book THREE.

So GoGo and I go back to get the right book.  No big deal.  Until GoGo spots the end cap of books.

GoGo: (loudly)  Mommy look!  It’s a whole shelf full of diarrhea.

(the people around us all turn and look)

Me:  Sweetheart, read the book title carefully.  What does it say?

GoGo (even more loudly as he points to a book)  Di-a-rrhe-a Wimpy Kid.  See?  Diarrhea Wimpy Kid, just like I said.

(several adults are now looking at the book, soundlessly reading out the title Di-a-ry-of-a wimpy kid.  One by one they chuckle and turn away.)

(meanwhile, i’m dying.  i’m trying so hard not to laugh that it hurts.  i have no idea if GoGo is doing this on purpose or not, but i don’t want to risk encouraging him.)

When we joined back up with my husband, I handed Watty his book.  But I couldn’t help myself.

Me:  The next time you want more Diarrhea, ask your dad for help.

With that, I left.  There was no way I was sticking around to hear what my husband’s response would be.

How have your kids made you laugh today?
