I Love Kids

I love kids. Not just my kids. I love most little kids, and I don’t mean that in the Lolita kind of way, either. Little kids just crack me up. There is something about the ages between 2 and 6 that I just think is great.

I was dropping The Goon Squad off at preschool today and a little boy I had never met before came up to me and said:

Hi! My name is Michael. I am five and three quarters. Do you want to see what I can do?

And I knew. I knew immediately just exactly what he was going to show me. Michael shoved his hand up his shirt and into his armpit and made farting noises.

And it was still funny.

Kids are great. How can they be so predictable and so surprising all at the same time?

  1. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    That consistently works as a pick-up line, too.

    I’ve heard.

  2. It always takes me forever to drop Petunia off or pick her up from preschool because I end up talking to all the kids and they end up talking to me. I love it. I love it when they yell, ‘Petunia’s mom, Petunia’s mom! Um…I got a haircut.’

  3. Excellent! That kind of talent should be nurtured.

  4. Oh five rocks out loud, really it does. Sense of humor, scatological obsession, complete perverts, figured enough out to sort of get it but sitll missing enough to be hilarious….five is great.

    It is awesome when kids run up b/c they’ve got something SO EXCITING!!!!! to tell you.

    Unless they have a fistful or rolie polies ro worms.

    Like today.

  5. Ha! There’s a kid after my own heart.

  6. That is one of the reasons that my job is great! Those kids make me laugh almost everyday!

  7. Couple more years he won’t even need the armpit.

  8. Well at least he is letting them “rip” yet. Wait till you’re in a crowded elevator and he farts and looks at you and says “mommy”! ha ha…. Yeah, that is a fun age. I’m so enjoying my girls at this age…. they say the cutest things.


  9. Earlier this week at my daughter’s preschool graduation, one of her friends patted my (very untoned, flabalicious) stomach at preschool graduation this week and grinned up at me and said, “You’ve got a little belly!!!”

    Hmmm…I think I’d take the farting sound effect trick over that. 😉

  10. And did I mention that it was at preschool graduation. Gah! :)

  11. I don’t know…I think I might be amused if one of my co-workers came up to me and wanted to show me the same thing. Are armpit farts never not funny?

  12. I’m afraid of kids.

    Can’t help it.
