So I just have a few minutes before we need to leave for midnight service (Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it!!)… but I had to log on and post this.
We went for Christmas Eve dinner at my aunt’s house tonight and it was the first time I’d seen some of my family since I got engaged. When I walked in my cousin asked me to see my ring and was doing the requisite oo-ing and ah-ing when from ALL the way across the room (yelling at me) my other cousin’s daughter (maybe 10ish?) yells “How many carats is it???”
I was dumbfounded!! I was actually speechless for a full 10 seconds with everyone looking at me and I couldn’t decide if it was ruder to answer or not. I finally stuttered out “ummmmmmmmm I don’t think I’m going to answer that.”
Yikes! Also (non-ring related) my younger second cousin who was 4 got to open a few presents tonight and it was maybe the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Someone got her a ceramic mug and plate with santa painted on them “to leave with milk and cookies so he’ll bring you presents for tomorrow.” Her face turned bright red and she yelled “I don’t like it!! It’s UGLY!!!” and when we all cracked up she spazzed and yelled “DON’T LAUGH AT ME” hahahahaha. Kids.
Anyone else have any funny/awkward christmas moments?

Wow, what kid even knows what carats are? That’s insane! And I love the other kid hating the plate because it’s ugly!

That is adorable.
I have a non-Christmas related funny kid story. My bf and I made a slideshow for his sister’s birthday. I think it turned out really beautifully and everyone was crying. We snuck in a funny picture of her when she was a baby with food all over her face. As everyone was cracking up(still emotional though), her little half brother (age 5) was like, ” I don’t like this. This not funny to me!! I don’t like it. It’s. Not. Funny!!!”

That is hilarious!! I’m with MissAsB – how in the heck does a 10 year old know about carats?! I’m 29 and I JUST learned about them when I got engaged!!! Oh, and about the plate & saucer – kids are just brutally honest sometimes. They will flat out tell you what’s up lol.

LOL…at least the one with the plate was honest..lol..they do say crazy things..
Our daughter said something the other night that made me think she understands too much! Her daddy was folding clothes and she grabbed one of my panties and put it on..he tried to get them back and she said what sounded like “i want to be sexy” LMBO!!!!!! i have got no clue where she could have heard that! and she is only 2…she is also very honest and will tell you when she doesn’t like something or someone..i can just see her doing the same thing with the plate.

@okqueenbee– I have NO idea how she knows what a carat is! lol Her mom (my cousin) is a leeeeetle off though so honestly it is possible she told her to ask me bc she wanted to know? Regardless, I did NOT answer!
Seriously though, I’m not even a kid person but when the little one started going on about the cup/plate I about fell off my seat and thought hm… yea ok maybe a kid would be ok haha.

Too funny, on Christmas eve our Neighbours were over and their 7 year old boy said to my Boyfriend or Best Friend: “In the story of Jesus, you are a wise man”
The man was quite happy with that, the 7 year old then said that I was the sheep, that made the Boyfriend or Best Friend laugh even more!

Last year for Christmas, my dad broke one of my cousin’s glass santa figurines. So this year, he got her a new figurine with Christmas stuff on it that spins as an “I’m sorry gift.” My cousin’s daughter (who’s 8) tells him “apology accepted”. We killed ourselves laughing.
