i want to crawl under a rock....

If you read my blog, then you know my sense of humor. I'm sure i have lost a few readers when I gave you a day of no sugar, or when i let the reality set in. Life is life, and really.....what's the point of making one's life look so sweet when there are some days you just want to rag on someone?! Don't get me wrong, I love my pretty house, my cute kids, my darling hubby, but break the shell down and you get me.



just me.



Which brings me to what happened yesterday morning.....








the little boy in the pic above. I had to take him with me to the lab because i had to have some blood work done. We were patiently waiting in the nice waiting room when a girl, probably not much older than myself walks in and has a seat. She looked completely normal, except for the fact that she had grey hair.



We all know how much I like grey at the moment, but unfortunately for this nice girl, Fin has only seen Grey on my walls and on furniture. Not in hair.....apparently.



So, he walks right up to her and says......."...are you the grandma???????"



Shoot me now.



kill me.



where is the closest rock i can hide under?







Then she looks at me...........







i want to DIE again....



and say's to little Fin..."oh, i'm not a grandma......i'm going to be a mommy.......my baby is in my belly".







i then take a small breath......because Fin is opening his mouth to say something else.......



and all i want to yell is STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP.



..and do you want to know what Fin says back? Do you really want to know????



he says...while looking at me.....







"hey mom, i didn't know grandma's had babies".







DIE.



SHOOT ME NOW



LIGHTENING STRIKE..PLEASE





...then i look at her and say........" he's not mine........i'm just the nanny"....





















why is it that they look so sweet on the outside? look at that toothless grin. all i want is to smother these pictures with kisses.



but underneath it all.....



you really don't know what these sweet children are capable of .



At the pool last summer, all my kidlets were in the pool swimming away, and then Lola gets out and comes over to sit with me. {yes, i don't get in the water...i sit and watch them while sunning myself}



she's chewing gum.



she didn't have gum when she went into the pool.



she's smacking away.



so i say to her...."do you have gum in your mouth"???



.....she say's "yup".



I say "Lola, who gave you gum"??????
she says....."oh, ....well.......i found it at the bottom of the pool".

Sorry but this is making me laugh over here! hahaha ;)

Kids! You gotta love 'em!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Feelings of shame and grossness, all in one post. Wow, you've covered a lot of bases today, Kasey. Too, too funny! The gum story is the worst, I have to say :)

Lori said...

oh my!!! i am cracking up over here:) that's what makes kids so fun...you just never EVER know what they are going to say and/or do...super cute post Kasey!!!

C Maisy said...

HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love all three of those awesome kids.

The Kramer Angle said...

Thanks for the good laugh first thing in the morning!

*The Beautiful Life* said...

Honey, all I can say is better you than me, girlie!! Whoa, I don't know what I would have done in that waiting room! :)
Oh, that Finn...
Thing is, seems the older I get, the more like Finn I am -- I'm usually the one making others wish they could crawl under a rock, because of things I can come out with sometimes. :)
I'm thinking...forget blogging, Kasey -- they need to make a reality show out of your life! Move over, Jon & Kate Plus Eight! :)

Farmgirl Cyn said...

Perhaps, just perhaps, the chlorine from the pool sanitized the gum???

Emily@remodelingthislife said...

Oh.My.

Too stinking funny!!

Jeanneoli said...

So funny! Gross...but funny!!!!

Chez Zizi said...

I too am laughing so hard I am crying. YEs we all have special moments like that. Thanks for starting my day off right.

Tiedupmemories said...

Out of the mouth of babes! Too funny! Same thing happened with my daughter when she was little with the chewing gum..... except we were walking in the mall! Imagine the horror on my face asking her wear she got it!

Sa-Sea Boutique said...

that just made my day start out on the right foot! soooo funny!!!! kids are the best!!!

Brandie said...

Oh, that was fun to read this morning. You had me cracking up. There are a few moments that my kids have mortified me too. Lola with the gum is pretty bad to top though;)

flax and spindle said...

I'm sorry, but at your expense my day has been brightened!! I am laughing so hard right now!!
FYI - I love your humor

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Thanks for the laugh this morning! Kids sure keep us humble, don't they?

Victoria said...

My sister sent me over here because she knew somehow that I needed some humor this morning. Now I'm off to look over the rest of your blog. :)

mimi charmante said...

And this, my friend, is exactly why I completely, utterly, totally adore you~
xo

koralee said...

I LOVE it!!!....kids are so great..really....they do their jobs very well. I am an elementry school teacher and nothing surprises me anymore... thanks for the morning laugh.. your photos of your children are AMAZING! Enjoy your day with those sweeties.

judy said...

All I can say is "Hysterical!" I remember those days. Thank you for the walk down memory lane. Giggle...

Lou Cinda said...

HILARIOUS!! LOVE IT!

Keep a journal of all these things they say, so you won't forget any of it! EVER! And pass it on when they have children....

Lou Cinda :)

Lissa said...

I burst out laughting when I read, "do grandma's have babies?" don't you just love that? too funny! Cute pics too by the way...

Victoria said...

Love your kitchen make over! I am in the middle of doing mine and was wondering if you could share with me what kind of lighting you have in the kitchen.

Also, I love the iron pot holder!!! It's beautiful!

littlebyrd said...

lol! It is wonderful to start the day with a good long laugh :O

Karen said...

Oh...my...goodness. Nice to know what I have to "look forward to" one day when I have kids of my own! Haha...

vintage at heart said...

Too funny! Thanks for a big ole belly laugh to jump start my morning!!!! Your kids are so beautiful!!!

traci said...

sorry that i am laughing at your expense. but that is a great story. you poor thing. you're lucky he's so cute. cuteness makes everything better.

Tara said...

got to love the innocence of children!! Good stories, I sure hope Lola spit that gum out when she saw the horror on your face! Happy Friday Kasey!

Julie said...

lol. Great stories and pics. Thanks for making me smile and reminding me my kids aren't the only ones like that. :) xo

The French Hen, Essex, CT said...

Love it...there is truth serum in the cereal that kids eat for breakfast. Once in the grocery store my son (age 3)saw a lovely african-american woman and exclaimed "Mom, look at the chocolate lady, yum!" Needless to say, we promptly took a little field trip to explore diversity!

Alex and Jill said...

Oh my gosh, I'm laughing SO HARD!!!

Great stories.

Leah C said...

Oh Kasey, I feel your pain, I really do...but, please forgive me, my heart needed a good laugh! Thanks so much for the laughter today:)

McMaster and Storm said...

oh, dear that is children for you! they do mean well!

Chablis said...

Mwahahahaha! sorry to be laughing. this is so (not) funny! There's nothing like an outspoken child to bring us some humility. It happens to the best of us.
Way to cover it up...you're the nanny! I wouldn't have been able to be clever like that. My brain is too slow. :)

Laura said...

I find comfort in seeing the "real mess" that lies beneath all of the beauty. We all have it.

And my kid pointed out the "giant butt" on a woman in line at the grocery store. So make room under that rock.

Jackie said...

It's the reality of having kids...they do what they do and they say what they say...you never know what it will be. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not, but you can count on it to be honest.

mishebe said...

lol. i have had those moments too. my son loves to do the same thing. I feel your pain.. lol. Mishelle

apriliniowa said...

That last part reminded me of the movie 'Elf' when Ferrel thinks the gum stuck on subway railings is free candy. hahaha. And, yet, I am gagging a bit. :)

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

I'm all about denying children and claiming the nanny when they put us in a pickle.

I support you fully. I would have done done the exact same thing.

But then they flash the toothy grin....sigh....and those kissable cheeks. And I remember that I love them, and they're mine.

xoxo

Lara said...

That is hilarious. Thanks for the good laugh this morning!!!

Janelle said...

Thanks for the Friday Laughs. O my goodness. I love what kids say. Your kids are adorable. Maybe that lady will get a clue and get her hair colored...lol

Tattered Goods said...

Well I am going to try to comment again I keep getting an error :( Anyway, I love your blog & your store. I love even more than that the fact that you are 4 REAL! I mean some folks sound to good 2 be true and I love that you admit stuff happens in our lives and you just say oh well.... I say good 4 U! This is my first post 2 you, I am new to having a blog so please stop by at my place and see how I am keeping up with the chaos in my world :) My 7 year old Emily Rae had the same gum issue as Lola and what can u do other than think that is so gross and do not do it again.....

jen from windy ridge said...

LOL. Don't you just love those moments? The other day at the Post office Wyatt spotted a man with a prosthetic arm with a hook on it and he yells on the top of his lungs "HI CAPTAIN HOOK!" as serious as he can be. He was so confused when I shushed him.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Oooh, no he di'in't! ;) Good post!!!

Evy said...

Haha, that's hilarious! I'm sure you felts horrible during that whole scene, but I bet in a few weeks you'll be laughing. Kids are priceless.

pat said...

Please keep posting as you always do, your blog is one of my favorites because it is real. Your sense of humor is just wonderful. Todays has me laughing out loud all by myself.

Emily B said...

kids are brutally honest sometimes. SOOO funny/embarrassing/awkward.... i kind of love that about them!!!! i get to come shopping in your boutique compliments of Tracy at Loving Pretty Things and I am SOOO excited!!!! YAY!

lauren said...

Fantastic post, I love every bit of it, made me laugh outloud!!!

Katy said...

Gum story: Ucky!!!

Grey hair story: So funny, but I'm sure not for you at the time. Dang, I bet your face was R.E.D.

Darling pictures.

Kacey said...

Kasey - oh my! Thanks for the laughs. Both great stories.

Simply Me Art said...

Didn't you know that children are put in our lives to Embarass the Hell out of us???Too Funny, Jamie

Brenna LaPray said...

What great stories! I'm still laughing. You've inspired me to write down the things my kids do and say. Too funny!

Melissa Miller said...

Love it! Tooo funny! :)

Nessa said...

Im so sorry!!! ..but this is so funny! Thanks for the giggle you caused me, i really needed it.

Amanda said...

A serious laugh out loud moment in my office just now. Kids. PRICELESS!

paige said...

we've all been there girlie!
guessing there are some kids out there who have parents that have probably embarassed them even more than that!
you're a keeper & so are they
xo

Susan said...

So funny. Kids are just so honest. It didn't sound like the girl was that offended. Wonder what color her hair will be after the baby comes out!
As for the gum. Yuck!!! But don't they say that being exposed to some germs help us become immune to them?

Loralee and the gang... said...

Thank heavens for chlorine. . . maybe that helped a little?

And I just have to say, what else is your little tyke going to say when he seems a lady with gray hair? He only compares all other women to his beautiful momma. (though I TOTALLY understand how you'd want to drop thru the floor! teehee)
:~D

Michelle said...

I LOVE IT! I have one of those little boys and whenever we are out I am on the lookout for anything that could set his thoughts and mouth in motion.. sometimes I miss it and he gets it out! It's a good thing they're cute! Michelle ;-0

Rebecca Frame said...

so funny kasey.
from the mouths of babes,right?
have a wonderful weekend!

Suzanne : : S.HOPtalk said...

So funny how kids get something stuck in their heads and just can't get it out.

My daughter, as serious as could be, one time asked my mom, "Did you ever have kids?" It's like she had only ever thought of her in "grandma" terms.

Have a great weekend.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Oh my goodness, I'm having such a laugh at your expense, my friend! You're kids are so adorable.

luckygirlgifts said...

Thanks for the laugh. I'm feeling better about my own kids. that is to say that I'm glad mine aren't the only ones. They are adorable.

Backyard Candle Co. said...

KIDS, what'll ya do?!! Have a good weekend Kasey!

Kelly Lunceford said...

Oh my...I totally feel your pain! I have had many such moments! BTW...I absolutely loved, loved, loved your no sugar post! I have been tempted, very tempted to post my own no sugar day on my blog! It was so refreshing to read and I seriously am shocked that you lost readers because of it! I love your blog! I come here every day to see what you are up to! Love the kitchen cabinets and now I am serioulsy thinking about adding a few coats of paint to my hideous cabinets. Keep doing what you are doing...hopefully you don't stay under your rock you have crawled under today for too long! LOL!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Oh Kasey, this was just the laugh I needed this morning!! The gum thing makes me want to laugh and then throw up in my mouth a little.

Your children are precious and I'm sure the woman in the lab didn't think otherwise!
~Michelle

Allegra said...

We are back from Disneyland and I HAVE to tell you..
As we stood in line for our last ride, two cute girls in minnie mouse ears completely embarrassed their dad by shouting, "Ewww, Daddy farted!"
Of course he didn't but man I would hae been mortified (and he was)

White Linen ~ Lavender Field said...

Not sure how I landed in your blog but I'm so glad I did. Love your candor. Your children are adorable. And your blog is neat!

Jamie said...

Kids are great, aren't they? I've had too many moments like that with my kids. I think I'm going to steal your "nanny" idea for next time. :)

LuLu said...

Anne Marie said...
