Funny Things Kids Say: Get A Life and See You In Montana, Mom

We often have the most amusing conversations on the way to school.  Maybe the main part is that we are all half asleep and I’m navigating a 4,385 pound mini van precariously through the streets.  These are the times that the kids like to catch me off guard with the most probing questions.

List of characters:  K1, 12 year old boy, definitely not a morning person; K2, 10 year old girl, treehugger, optimist; K3, 6 year old girl, runs the family; Mom, overwhelmed, greying and tired.

K2:  Mom, can I live with you when I grow up?

K1:  Dad says when you turn 18 you are out of the house.  You’ve got to “Get a life!”

K2:  But, I want to live with you, Mommy.

Mom:  I’d like you to live with me, I suppose I could charge you rent.

K1:  How much would that be, Mom?

Mom:  Oh, maybe $1200 a month.

K1:  Are you crazy?  $1200?  For $1200 I could get my own condo or something.

Mom:  Do you realize the house across the street is renting for $8000.00 a month?  Do the math.  You might be able to get a nice condo in Montana.

K1:  See you in Montana, Mom!
