Big Kid: You know what? Da utter day, when I was at Em's house, I said "Eureeka!" and she went and told her mudder dat I called her a retawd.

Ashley: (snorting back a laugh)

Big Kid: Don't laugh, it's not funny. I don't eben know what a retawd is and she's sayin' I called her dat and twied to get me in twouble wif her mom.

Ashley: Well, what did Aunt Em's mom say?

Big Kid: She dest said, "Oh boy" like she was tired or somefing.

Ashley: Yeah, she probably was pretty tired. Don't say that word though, it's not nice.

Big Kid: I neber eben did say it! How come you don't listen? I said Eureeka!

Ashley: Well, that's a pretty weird thing to say too. I'd skip both from here on out.

This was so funny I not only laughed, I had to read it to my husband, who hates when I read out loud from blogs, but he laughed too. Yet, it made my heart pull too, knowing that misunderstandings are bound to happen to quirky, sweet kids. (I count my own as one.) -Lilly

I laughed. I'm still laughing. Obviously this means that I would make a bad mother. Wait...I am a mother. Sucks to be my kids.

I'm still laughing too. I can't tell you how many times I've said "Eureka" out loud in the past 48 hours, and tried to make it sound like "You're a retard". You're a reeka. You're a reetah. It's not such a stretch. Okay, I'm laughing out loud again. Actually, just as funny as Eureka is Em's mom's response of "oh boy", like she was tired. This whole story is a hoot.
