I’ve Been Called Worse

Tater: Mom, who’s that?

Me: Where?

Tater: Right there (pointing at the counter)

Me: The toaster?

Tater: No! The lady next to the toaster

Tealight Candle Holder
Me: That? That’s a witch. See her making a magic potion in her *cauldron*? She’s *spooky* looking, huh?
Tater: That’s not you?
Me: No! That’s a witch!
Tater: Oh, I thought it was you.
Me: (Sigh) Did your dad tell you that?
And so it goes…

  1. Natalie, I just love reading your posts,and your stories. You are so good at this, you pull us into what you are writing. I felt the pain when you wrote about the elevator and the love when you wrote about Jason's mom. You are great...keep it up, you are very talented.
    Love you,
    Aunt Mary
  2. Sippy Cup Mom says:
    LOL, too funny!
  3. Maria Gridley says:
    oh my gosh.. too funny! Kids!! One time my son saw Carmon Electra on TV and got all excited saying.. 'Momma look how you on TV!?' I was like OMG.. haha thats not me. He said.. 'oh that look like you.' :)
    Now I wouldnt think or say that I look like her at all. haha but it was a good laugh. and Made me smile.
    Fortunately I havent had any "witchy" mix ups LOL. But im sure maybe once they hit their teen years... HAHA
  4. I love children, don't you? Remember when they couldn't speak? Yeah. It was much better for my self-esteem. Sage asked me if I was pg today because she said my belly was fat. Good times!
  5. Mommy Needs a Vacation says:
    Hahaha! Kids really do speak their minds don't they?? And if it makes you feel any better- I am going to be a witch for Halloween this year. Mommy the Witch!
  6. That's just perfect! That Tater is something else :)

    Kids say the darndest things!

    I found out the hard way it was time to stop letting my boys catch me naked when the middle kid asked me the other day, "Mom, what are those hangy down things?"

    Bet that made you feel better about the whole witch thing, huh?

    Hee Hee!
  7. Alex@LateEnough says:
    I love that you thought your husband set him up. Ha!
    (wait, did he? because HUGE high five to him)
  8. That's pretty funny! Oh i cannot wait till Tonya's son can start talking! I just know he is going to be full of some silly stuff! : )
  9. hahaha - that totally made me laugh out loud! hahaha
  10. JDaniel4's Mom says:
    Oh! I would love to be tall and skinny. She looks like she is having a good hair day too.
  11. Too funny!
  12. Hahaha!! That is so funny. Did his dad tell him that? ;-)

  13. Hahahaha that's really is too funny! :P
  14. Carolyn (temysmom) says:
    I'd be thrilled to be called a witch considering some of the other names my kids have called me. LOL!
  15. I think you're going to have to say it was a compliment. Because of the delicious brew she's clearly cooking up - must have reminded Tater of you.
  16. The Blogging Goddess says:
    Kids...you gotta love them...right??
  17. redriverpak says:
    Wish I could make mine young again! Cute! :)
  18. Lori @ In Pursuit of Martha Points says:

    Right up there with looking at the beautiful younger photos and arguing with your small child..."That is TOO me! That's ME! MOMMY! I USED to look like that! I did SO!"

    That's a proud moment.
  19. MommaKiss says:
    Did your dad tell you that. Ha!!!
    I'm a witch. Fully admit it. Would rather be that than a bitch, just sayin'
  20. Mommy Lisa says:
    That is cute. I don't have ANYTHING out for Halloween, not even our pumpkins yet.
  21. Ha! Blame it on the husband...
  22. Jersey Diva Mom says:
    I agree w/ JDaniel's mom-- skinny & a good hair day-- could be worse : )

    Every year my son asks if I'm dressing up, and every year he suggests a witch. Um yeah- I get the dig kid. Good luck getting Daddy to atke ya to the costume store ; P
  23. Sharlene T. says:
    Dad probably did put him up to that (dads do that on a regular basis, then try to look innocent)... you'll figure out how to handle this...
  24. Hmmm, maybe he thought it was you dressed up for Halloween?
  25. LOL!

    Sorry, I only laugh b/c my kids have sad similar things.
  26. moveovermarypoppins.com says:
    oooh, wicked boy!

    pretty cute, though.
  27. That is too funny. Where do their little heads get this stuff? Although, I'm going to side with Tater on this one... I do see a resemblance. Hee Hee.
  28. No. It can't be you. It looks too much like me.

    And I'm gonna be a witch this Halloween. With a green face and everything.
  29. Booyah's Momma says:
    Well, you ARE the mommy of a monster, right? Sounds like he was just getting into the Halloween spirit! :)
  30. The Empress says:
    Adorable...broom stick and all.
  31. hahahahahaha...you really make me laugh,
  32. The Mommyologist says:
    LOL!!!! I'm sure that my little guy would make that same mistake. And my hubby probably would too.
  33. Oh Nat, he's training him for future husband-type comments! It starts so young....
  34. The Flying Chalupa says:
    Typical. The hubs will get his come-uppance. Just wait until the girls can talk. :)
  35. Melissa (Confessions of a Dr. Mom) says:
    ...because you always stand that way wearing a witch's hat while making dinner ? ;) Very cute.
  36. Cute. Could've been worse like Momma Kiss said.
  37. LOL! You never know what a kid is going to say or repeat!!
  38. Mommybreath says:
    Funny! I was told i should be a witch this year because I was so good at it all last year. Wha?!? LOL
