I have the heart of an 8 year old. In a jar. On my desk.

I have mixed feelings about kids..

I think they're lovely most of the time..you know..they look up to you, adore you, hang onto your every word and they do say the funniest stuff.

Like the time the cute kid frm the 18th floor came to my house to take something for his mom, and as he walked out the door, he coyly turned around, waved his hand seductively and sang out to my brother "Bye Kitty-Kat!"
My tall manly-man brother, who was lounging on the couch and watching soccer (what else?), turned to me and said "What the hell's wrong with that kid?"

And then there are the types who think they're smarter than you. And meaner than you. And bitchier than you.

Like the time I took Kelso down for a walk.
A chubby 6 year old girl walked up to him and eyed him like he had a bad smell (he DIDN'T. He smells like baby shampoo) and snorted "Stupid dog."
It took me all my patience (and bitchiness) to snort back "Careful. He might just take a bite out of you, Chunky."
She just turned and flounced off. (Hair flip and all. Honestly. If she hadn't just dissed my dog, I'd have been almost proud of her.)

Then there was the time a little tyke and his family had come over for dinner. He seemed very VERY fond of Kelso. Every now and then he'd tell his mother (in a slightly sinister manner, I thought) "Mom, I want a dog JUST LIKE Kelso!"
While we were dropping them at the lift, he looked like he was thinking very hard about something and then he slinked up next to me.
"Didi (sister) what if...someone kidnapped Kelso......but what if he really really loved Kelso.."
"Go on.."
"And what if....you found out he had kidnapped Kelso...what would you do?"
I turned to the little monkey, smiled and said very softly "I'd slap him. Hard."
"Oh..." and into the lift he ran, looking a bit put off.

And THEN there was the time I was in the lift with ADHD-boy from the first floor.
"Hi D! How are you?" I said to him.
Not taking his eyes off the lift door he said "Shut up."
"Not having a good day eh?"
"Shut up."
"You shut up!"
"Shut up."
"I think you're rude."
"Shut UP."
"Go to hell asshole."
Luckily for him his floor arrived.
I was all ready to beat the ADHD outta him

Stupid kids.

I am SO gonna become one of those women that kids will either hate or love.
Or love to hate.
Or hate to love.
And I'll bake yummy pies and not give the mean ones a SINGLE slice.

oh...those all cracked me up. And it proves my point on why I like kids--cause they don't sugarcoat ANYTHING. They're completely genuine, and just say the truth.

Seriously, sometimes I think adults should just be that way again.

Haha! Your post reminds me of this time when my friend had gone to the parlor, and the owner's young son had come up to her and said "Your face looks like a pineapple!" You should have just seen my friend fuming mad when she was narrating the incident to me. *laughs*

But yeah, some kids are SO annoying at times. Esp when you're being nice to them and they just stub you for no reason.Brats!

What kind of crazy-ass building do you live in?

My kids are very sweet (I'm not just saying that because I'm legally required to) but like all children they are honest to a fault. My 5-year old recently asked my aunt why she has sideburns. Oye.

Mahi:Well Kids are Kids and I guess for some reason me being me and also woriking with almost 120 kids daily ;I think differently..

I wont say i wont get annoyed if kids were very intollerant and when having extreme conditions of behavior..but on the other side i also work with kids who are I should Say With Special Needs ...When they bahave unruly I just put an arm around them and let them make the commotion.. They give up at the end and hug me back .. I take that home every day ..

So when they tell you to shut up. Just shut up. They dont have that developed a brain to explain why you should shut up, or to justify their actions. But they never lie.

So Mahi, Please... shut up!

Kids I think are cute. if some kid said shut up to me, I would be laffing my arse away. Then I would beat up his pop and tell em to teach them some manners!

I love kids.

But since I usually shoot off my mouth before thinking twice as required, I got the glares of this man once in the flight.

2 kids were playing in the aisle. Then they started crying and wailing for no ostensible reason.

The lady besides me spoke in French, "Aawh, what cute kids!"

I jabbered back, "Such cute kids, if I had a gun I would shot them both."

OK. It did seem like humor that time, but the lady certainly didn't seem to think so. Aah Merde.

Mahi im sure the old adage will hold true for you: your life will change when you have your first child.

Kids are like people. Just be yourself and those that will follow will be right beside you. and those that dont agree with you will stick their toungue out at you.

for now, practice all ur caring abilities on someone that cares....lil' tesco

One of the best things about being gay is that you never, ever have to worry about having kids of your own. Ever.

I fuckin' hate 'em.
