Monkey's Uncle

Brother #2, my monkeys' uncle, took his girl monkeys and two of my boy monkeys to kick the soccer ball at the high school football field this afternoon. Here is the conversation we had when he brought them home.

Monkeys' Uncle, "I lost your baby monkey."

Me, "Well, go find him."

Monkeys' Uncle, "Oh, I FOUND HIM. Guess where?"

Me," Clueless."

Monkeys' Uncle, " He crawled under the pole jump crash mat. All I could see was one tiny little foot hanging out."

Me, "How long was he missing?"

Him, "about thirty seconds."

Me, "Don't lose my kid."

In Other Monkey News:

1.) Teenage Monkey says " One time, at school, I stapled my hair."

2.) Middle Monkey says, " It takes 30 days to break a habit. "

I say, "What HABIT do you need to break?"

He says, "Chewing my toenails."

3.) Later this very same day I scream, "Do not jump on the trampoline with scissors." I did, I really really did.

4.) Finally, It looks like Lucy is not a girl and I was unable to explain to my monkeys that one rabbit was not trying to eat the other rabbit or take a ride on her back. I'm going to need some help with the "where babies come from" thing.

5.) I thought it was over, but apparently no. I kid you not. It is 10 pm and I hear giggling. I go in and check it out. #3 stapled his blanket to the ceiling.

Help me.


  1. Your monkey tales made me giggle. :D

    I'm so glad your plum tree is in bloom! Yay!!!! Now we're plumsy twinsies!

  2. I like being a twinsie. Just like chrishanda (idential twin nieces).

  3. You completely lost me on this one--but I was here and tried. It must be a child's conversation and you got a kick out of it.

  4. Thanks for trying. It's caos, my childrens comments, and one out of three of my brothers. I think you would have to be raised over here to make any sense of it. Sorry.

  5. I suppose I should be more clear when I am posting random kid weirdness. Maybe a warning "RANDOM MONKEY MADNESS." How's that?

  6. You have a cabbage patch.....just use that one. Its a boy monkey. He doesn't have to know WHERE they come from.

  7. You sooo need to have a video camera running 24/7. lol. Thanks for the giggle. It reminds me of the 'funny later...much, much later' things my kids have done.

  8. If I thought they would buy the cabbage patch theory I would use it.

    Tina, Glad to give you the giggles. Please share your kid stories. I need all the support I can get.

  9. Turn on Animal Planet, set them in front of it for 24 hours and they'll understand...although my kids have yet to transfer that to mankind! LOL!

    And I think I live in a zoo....we don't come close to you!

  10. Ok, now I get it. I should be use to randomness--I'm like that sometimes. I can give you real scientific explanation that will bore them to tears and they'll quit asking--lol.

  11. You can make sex boring? No, for real? I don't believe it.

  12. Is this still "THE GARDENING CHANNEL" or what?

  13. Growing plants, growing kids, sex education. This is a nonspecific kind of blog. Duh, you know I can't focus girlfriend.
