Yes, Like from Shrek

The title? Words I need to learn. The following? An excerpt of the conversation between Zander (Z), the hairdresser (HD), and myself during Zander's last hair cut:

HD: What's your name, sweetie?

Z: (quiet) (not real excited about talking to strangers, generally)

Me: His name is Zander.

HD: Zander, do you have any pets?

Z: (moving head like crazy) Yes! A puppy!!!

HD: A puppy?! How neat! What is your puppy's name?

Z: Fiona.

HD: Oh, what a pretty name! Fiona like from Shrek?

Z: (confused blinking; if it's not a character from Star Wars or Cars, he probably doesn't know it)

Me: No, Fiona like from Shameless.

HD: (distracted as she cuts hair) Oh, okay. (Moment of silence followed by startled eye contact.)

Me: Not that he's ever seen Shameless! His dad and I named her!

What fun things have your kids (or you!) said recently?


  1. I just found your blog and I love it! :) I am your newest follower! :)

  2. Hilarious! Well-- at the teacher conference Dan & I learned that Henry informed his teacher - out of the blue-- That Dan sleeps naked. Yep. That was cool ;)

  3. Nikki has random moments of wisdom. We're not sure where they come from but they are always interesting. The other day as I was getting her out of the van she looked at me and said: "Mommy, when I have a baby come out of my tummy, will you be a grandma?" Yeah...pretty dang insightful for a 4 year old! lol
