Even MORE Cody Quotes -


I meant to put this up for Mother's Day, but my husband broke his foot on Friday so I've been doing other things. Without further ado, I give you real quotes from my kidlings:

Me: It's going to be a GREAT DAY!  
Me: Wait, no.  Not going to be...it IS a great day.
Cody: I hate Mondays
pause
Cody: And Tuesdays.....and the first twelve hours of Wednesday.


Cody just started wearing deodorant.  On the first day he approached me with his arms up in the air. "Mmmm. I smell something masculine and clean."  

He stands in front of me, arms raised, watching expectantly until I sniff in the general direction of his arm pit and say, "Mmm it smells like ocean surf. So manly."



Me: Cody, why does the dog do that? Why does she go outside only to want right back in?
Cody: I don't know.  Maybe you should call the DOG-ter


Cody is great at math, but hates doing it:
"We have to hurry up and do math and we have to face the horror of problem solving yet again." 


My daughter argues like a wolf attacks.  She comes out of nowhere until you don't know which end is up and wears you out. An actual conversation:

Me: Kiersten, did you put your laundry away?
K: (nothing)
(maybe she didn't hear me...)
Me: Kiersten, did you put your laundry away?
(nothing)
Me: If you don't get your laundry put away, your friend cannot spend the night.
K: Yeah, well Dad's old.
Me: What does that have to do with anything?  Have you put your laundry away?
K: You let Courtney do whatever she wants!



Me: Poor Rudolph.  He never got to play any reindeer games. And I bet they were playing checkers or something cool.
Cody: Strip poker.
Me: What???!

Showing off his impressive vocabulary:
Cody:  In vernacular English, puppy refers specifically to dogs
(I don't think I've ever used vernacular in a sentence)

They were showing security camera footage on the news, Cody says: "Oh the frame rate on those cameras is awful!"

From my daughter #1:
"Kyle put celery down the back of my shirt today." 
P A U S E 
"I like Kyle."

Something I never thought I'D say:
"Get your foot out of the toilet, RIGHT NOW."

I just found a song my daughter secretly recorded on my voice recorder when she was 8:

Mom, Mom.
Ohhh Mom
Ohhhh
Mom, I have something to say

Mom, I love you
Through all the ups and downs.
Mom, I love you
It's just a thing I say.
Mom, I love you.

I know you love me back
But you as my mom
I'm loving you.
If I have to decide through
Lovin you or a radio
I'd choose you.

Oooohhhh, Mom
I love you.

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the AWESOME MOMS out there!

That song was cute.

Happy Blitz Day! funny quotes. I've learned that if you don't word your question perfectly, you will not get the answer you think you want. Good luck and keep writing 'em down. That's material for a lifetime.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Visiting from the Blitz! Hope you have a great day. :)

Nicki Elson said...

How dare your husband break his foot & need care right before Mother's Day! You MUST stage an accident right before Father's Day...but I do hope he's heeling fast & not in too much pain.

This is a treasure of kids quotes - you must laugh all day long.

Heather M. Gardner said...

Brilliant. At least you're never bored. :)
I should have written down all the things I never thought I would say.

BAZINGA!!!

You've been BLITZED!

Have a great day!
Heather

Karen Walker said...

Awww - lovely Vicki. Happy Blitz day, by the way

Melanie Schulz said...

Love this! I have a whole file on my computer of sayings from my four year old boy--they say the funniest things--so concrete.

Arlee Bird said...

"Kid's say the darndest things," as the late Art Linkletter used to say.

I'm now following your blog. I guess that's one of those things that can happen on Blitz Day.

Enjoy your extra comments!

Tim Knight said...

Happy Blitz Day! May I be so bold as suggest you might enjoy my friend's blog Three Beautiful Things (http://threebeautifulthings.blogspot.co.uk/) which is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary! I get the impression that the two of you have a lot in common.

Happy Blitz Day!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Kids! They are wonderful and yours sound very special. Happy Blitz Day.

M.J. Fifield said...

Oh, I love those Cody quotes—and truly, all the rest of the conversations.

I'm not much of a fan of the first twelve hours of Wednesday either...

Hello from the Blitz!

S.K. Anthony said...

Ha! Your kids are too funny! And now I have to write vernacular here. There. I used it in a sentence now as well. Happy Blitz Day!

Jeremy [Retro] said...

the glory of comments... to the words of one who makes you laugh... makes me laugh. thank you. happy BLiTz... so i give you a BLT!

~Sia McKye~ said...

LOL! Yah, I have a son who argues like a wolf attacks too. Nope, what he says to deflect has NOTHING to do with the discussion at hand.

Song was cute. Now, the next time she ticks you off, as kids are wont to do, you just play that back. Just smile and say isn't this the sweetest thing? Preferably when a few friends are around.

Zan Marie said...

Oh. My! Kids and humor, what's not to like. Happy Blitz Day!

april said...

I hope your husband recovers quickly. Kids say the funniest things. Happy Blitz Day!

J.L. Campbell said...

Hi, there,
Sounds as if your kids make things around you quite interesting.

Hope your husband's foot is recuperating nicely.

Kimber Leigh Wheaton said...

Sounds like there's never a dull moment at your house! The other day my son commented, "I don't know how the dogs can eat this stuff." He points to the dog food. "It tastes awful." -- He's 13.
Happy Blitz Day!

I've had a few Cody's in my life, too. They grow up quickly. Thanks for the laughs and happy blitz day.

Khushboo Motihar said...

Loved reading about Cody. Am going to share it with all my friends. Happy Blitz Day dear :)

Crystal Collier said...

LOL! So cute. I especially loved the toilet one. And the weekday one. *snort* I send quotables to family members on the other side of the country once a month, and I tell you what, those are going to be life-long treasures.

Happy blitz day!

Tina said...

This is adorable! You have very precocious kids with impressive vocabularies, and arguing skills. Best of luck as they get older...mine are both boys, 17 and 14 and verbal sparring is a sport at our house. As is movie quoting.
Very nice to meet you through the Blitz Team!

The secretly recorded Mom song is adorable. Doesn't it make you feel good to know that you rate higher than a radio? :-)

He's a hoot. You made me laugh with his quotes. A dose of the dogtor.

Happy Blitz.

Maria Dunn said...

Hi Vicki,
Had to smile since my kids have done some of these. My son used to scream, "MOM, MOM," "WHAT, WHAT," I would respond. "I love you," he'd calmly say. You gotta love 'em. Maria, Delight Directed Living

VR Barkowski said...

Hilarious! What a fun post. Thank you for the smiles, Vicki.
And …

HAPPY BLITZ DAY!!!

Theresa Milstein said...

Sorry about your husband.

Happy belated Mother's Day! And Happy Blitz Day! I'm glad to have an excuse to visit your blog again.

Gina Ciocca said...

Hahaha, Dad is old. I love it. My son can't talk yet, but from the way he fights his diaper changes with every fiber of his being, I know he'll probably be using his verbal skills as a weapon the minute he acquires them!

Sarah Ahiers said...

Woo! Happy Blitz Day!

Sorry about your hubby's foot, but on the plus side, your kids sound great!

Jenni Enzor said...

Thanks for giving me a laugh this morning--loved the quote about the toilet. Ha!
Happy Blitz Day!

Kate Larkindale said...

Your kids are awesome! I should remember to write down some of the best things my kids say too. My oldest was hilarious when he came back from school camp earlier this year. I asked him if he showered at all while he was away and he said "we were allowed to choose when we wanted to shower. I chose Thursday."

Happy Blitz Day!

Carrie-Anne Foster said...

Kids are just bundles of fun! I love that recording you found of your daughter. That's definitely a keeper.

Happy Blitz Day!

Sandy said...

Happy Blitz, sounds like a hectic Mother's Day. I'm told you're doing the kindness challenge. Look forward to reading about it. I'm always happy to read about other people doing good things. Too bad the good things rarely make it to the news.

Feeling a little woozy? You should, because you, my dear, are getting BLITZED! Enjoy.

I came for the Blitz, but then I signed up to follow. Loved your kid quotes. My kids are grown so their quotes, while intelligent, aren't blog worthy.

Happy Blitz Day :)

Tiana Smith said...

Me: We need to go pick up Daddy from work.
Kiddo: Did he fall down?

Gotta love 'em :) Love the argument over the laundry!
