More ironic kid quotes

1. The weather is below zero. My teens leave the house in only a hooded sweatshirt, no hat, no mittens. I ask "it that all you are wearing outside?" They answer "Yeah, because I don't want to look dumb!"

2. Youngest struggles for over a minute each trying to force her feet into closed snowboots. I ask "Why don't you unlatch the velcro, THEN put them on?" She answers "Because that would take too long!"

My Grandfather and I both refuse to untie/buckle our shoes when taking them off or putting them on.

He lived 94 years with that attitude, I think I could achieve the same. :)

Coat?? Teens are much more into appearance than warmth........me, I'd be looking like Nanook of the North!

The people in the office on the other side of the wall just banged on the wall to ask me to laugh more quietly.

Unlike my wife, this makes me laugh. I'll still be giggling when I drive them to the ER for frostnipped ears.

It's nice to know things haven't changed. I'm sure I said similar things not all that long ago.

Okay, who writes this stuff for them?!

Dr Zibbs said...

Sounds like my kids. And an umbrella? Forget it.

The offspring never cease to amaze me, with their wonderful enlightening explanations - for OUR stupidity and ignorance. I guess as parents we will learn someday.

FranIAm said...

Oh the "discussion" we had over wearing Uggs mocassins without socks in 10 degree weather with snow on the way... I only feel comfort in hearing your version of the same theme.
