Musings from Natalie #11

Natalie: "Taking care of hamsters is such hard work.  I can't possibly feed all of them at the same time." (said while playing her Princess Zhu Zhu Pets video game)
Me: "Hmm...just think how hard it would be if they were real, live pets."
Natalie: "Yeah, do you know the worst thing about taking care of kids?"
Me: "What?"
Natalie: "The whining!"

Natalie: "Mom!  Look at those kids wearing costumes!" (pointing to a group exiting karate class)
Me: "Those aren't costumes.  They are wearing their uniform for karate class."
Natalie: "Oooh! Can I take karate class?"
Me: "I can look into it if you think you'd like it."
Natalie: "Oh yes!  Do you think you could get me a pink belt to wear with the uniform?"

Me: "It's time for you to get a shower."
Natalie: "But I only played outside for a little bit."
Steve: "Well, maybe you just need to take a little shower."
Natalie: "Daddy, you're pushing it."

Natalie: "What's a budget?"
Me: "It's figuring out how much you have to spend your money on."
Natalie: "How 'bout we figure out how to spend our money on a vacation."

"When I'm a Mom I'm going to have two girls.  I'll name one Candy and the other one Sparkle," shared Natalie.


  1. Hi I’m Heather! Please email me, I have a question about your blog! LifesABanquet1(at)

  2. Apparently your grandchildren are going to My Little Ponies, or strippers. Prepare yourself, A!

  3. Oh yes! Do you think you could get me a pink belt to wear with the uniform?" she asked.

  4. Hi Natalie, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (, and I’m visiting from Finding the Funny.

    These are funny! Your kids are awesome. I just did a review for a thing called Quippsy that you should join. I swear, I get no kick-backs. If you click on the link above, you can get a free membership. It's a place to write in the funny things your kids say, and then people vote on them and stuff. Seems cool, I don't know.

    Have a good one!
