Most Disgusting thing ever

Tessa and Zach were across the street playing with the neighbors for 20 Mins.  Zach comes in this ensues:

Daddy: Why are you back so soon?

Zach: (out of breath) ...I just saw the most disgusting thing ever...mmmm...I don't even want to talk about it.  Don't even ask me about it.

Daddy: (Turns off TV)

Mommy: Tell us about it.

Zach:  They were watching a video of two naked people "doing it".  It was disgusting.  Then I went in their house and they were watching scary Clown movies on the iPad.

Daddy went over and checked out the Clown and found that they were harmless.  He could not find anything on the couple "Doing it".  Long discussions with children ensued...

10 minutes after Zach went to bed he got out of his room and said: Daddy I cannot sleep--everytime I close my eyes I see that disgusting stuff 

Just try and think of something else.

Fancy word

"I'm Sexy and I know it" came on the radio.  Daddy started telling everyone that some kindergarden kid got suspended from school for singing that song even though it is on the M&M comercial.   Zach started singing the song.

Mommy: Zach you don't want to sing that in school.

Zach: Sexy is just a fancy word for really cool...I'm really cool and I know it.

Party like a Rock Star

We FINALLY figured out what is up with Zach's newest wardrobe obsession:

Zach: I want a real guitar with a strap and a plug and I want to dress like a rock star.

Mommy: How does a rock star dress?

Zach: They wear a t-shirt with a dress shirt over it with a tie [this is currently what he wears to school].

Mommy: What makes you think a rock star dresses that way?

Zach: Well, that's how Alvin the Chipmunk dresses.

PJ School Day

This is one of the not so funny stories that is best saved for embarrassment in the future.

One morning when Daddy was in Australia, Mommy was getting the kids ready for school.  The clothes Tessa picked out could not be worn because of the bad weather, and she refused all other suggested outfits.

Tessa: I don't know what to wear. I don't want to wear anything in this closet.

Mommy: You'd better pick out something. I don't want to have to send you to school in your pajamas.

Tessa: You would not do that!

Mommy: Oh yes I would.

An hour later, Tessa was still laying on the floor in front of her closet in her pajamas.

Tessa: I'm not putting on any clothes and I'm not going to school today!!!

Mommy: We'll see about that.

Mommy picked her up and carried her out to the car in her pajamas and drove her to school. When they got to the school, Mommy asked to have the school counselor speak with Tessa about the importance of attending school. The counselor was not available, so the "Acting" Vice-Principal came and had a little chat with Tessa. She spent the rest of the day at school in her pajamas.

Zach was watching the entire scene very, very quietly. He said only one thing on the entire ride to his school.

Zach: Mommy, I will never, ever do what Tessa did.

After school, Mommy and Tessa had a discussion.

Mommy: So, how did it feel to have to talk to the Vice-Principal and go to school in your pajamas?

Tessa: Fine.

Mommy: That wasn't embarrassing to have to talk to the Vice-Principal?

Tessa: No, because he is really just my Math teacher.


Tess and Zach were watching tv when a comercial came on where a character (who was a dog) said that "I am going to need a pedicure after this".

Zach: What is a pedicure?

Tessa: It is when a bunch of animals go to the bathroom at the same time.
