Kids: Cute or Creepy?
Kids are inherently adorable, that's a fact that everyone is aware of. Almost anything and everything that they say is pretty cute, especially when they are just learning to talk. The babbling and cooing is some of the sweetest sounds you will ever hear. But once they do learn to talk? Watch out. As children learn and grow, they try to communicate their thoughts, and most of the time they get it right, other times, things can come off sounding pretty darn creepy.
Take my son, for example. He's four years-old and a little chatterbox. I mean he loves to talk. From the moment he wakes up in the morning to the minute his little head hits the pillow at night, he doesn't stop talking, and that's okay, great even! But there are times when what he is trying to say seems to get mixed up when he gets to talking too fast. I'm pretty certain that he isn't trying to be a creeper, and that it just comes out sounding like that. I hope, I hope, I hope.

I'm Not Going To Kill You!
I'm sorry, excuse me, what did you just say? He just said what I think he said, didn't he? He did this at the in-laws house, too, no less. My husband and his son were playing in a play-tent, and were trying to snuggle, when all of a sudden, my sweet little boy looked up at my husband, and in a slightly sinister voice says "Don't worry daddy, I'm not going to kill you!" akljfkajsfWHAT?! When we asked him what he meant, he just started giggling that maniacal little giggle that he does when he's caught doing something and ran off. I think daddy's going to be sleeping with one eye open tonight...
Oh, biscuits, there is absolutely nothing like the smell of freshly baked biscuits wafting through the home on a cold winter day. They're downright comfort food, pair them with a bit of white gravy, and it's sheer heaven in your mouth. My son wanted to help out with making dinner one day, and we let him help open the biscuits. Well, my in-laws opened the biscuits, I'm terrified of those things. Seriously, you bang on them, and bang on them, and nothing. Turn around and BOOM, they're open! But that's not the weird part. Our little guy was intrigued by the look of the biscuits, and he wanted to poke one, which he did. All of a sudden, out of his little mouth says "These biscuits are made of humans!"
Can I Dance On Them?!
Our family was out shopping one day, and we had decided that we wanted to grab a bite to eat. Nothing too fancy, just some fast food to tide us over until dinner. Somehow, somehow, we got on the conversation of mummies. Remember, this is a child we're talking to, lord knows what direction a conversation will go. So, the little one asks what mummies are, and my husband gently explained that they are people who have been dead for a very long time. Without missing a beat, my son looks my husband dead in the eyes and says "Can I dance on them?!" What even. What even?
