3 yr olds say the funniest things......


Yesterday after my workout, I stayed in my running clothes for most of the day. This is something I never do. I tend to get really cold if I don't shower right after a workout, and I also just hate hanging out in my sweatyness... YUCK. My 3 year old is a hoot and we just can't seem to get enough of the funny things she says. I really need to start posting more about her silliness. This is the conversation she had at me..... yes, at me, yesterday.


3 yr old: "Mom, when are you going to take a shower?"

Me: I don't know, when I get to it.

3 yr old: Well...... (very irritated now) you need to shower

Me: why do you care if I shower now or later?

3 yr old: cause you are pretty when you get showered and do your hair.

Me: awwww, thanks that is nice. I will shower in a little bit.

3 yr old: Mom, you need to shower now, cause you are ugly when you don't shower after you run. But you are pretty when you shower.


So today I showered right after my run and after stretching, and before my 3 yr old could remind me that I am ugly after I run. I think I need to inform her that I don't try to look pretty while or after I run.

too funny! Don't tell her how ugly i am, as I haven't had a chance to shower yet since my run at lunch, and i normally don't wait either!! She's adorable!

I just stumbled upon your blog. I am looking forward to reading more. :)

Kids are too funny. I write down the funny things that mine say because I worry that I won't remember in a few years. :)

Kelli said...

that is funny, she does have a thing about you showering (remember when she told you that you need to shower) that girl!

At least she's not telling you how much you stink, unlike mine.

Tell her you are pretty when you RUN!!

Kim said...

She is a doll!
Tell her you have to get ugly (hence exercising and getting sweaty) to become beautiful after you run.

Oh.My.Gosh...I hope that hair is done!

Have a great weekend

Running makes me ugly, too. :-)

Not sure if I pretty up too much with the shower though!
