Cuteness Dose: Tiny Whineys

Me, first birthday, 1967 (I wish I still had that Fisher Price TV.)

It's nice to have kids in my life again on a regular basis. I'm laughing more. Here's a dose of cuteness. Names have been changed to protect the young comics.
 
A parent told me about taking his son, Willy, to the dentist. Willy is highly afraid of being sedated. Willy sat in the dental chair and immediately asked the female hygienist: "Are you going to seduce me?"
 
As I was driving Tim to a park, he said, "Robyn, I have a belt."
"That's good, Tim," I affirmed. "It will keep your pants up."
"Yeah, and I don't want anyone to see my tiny whineys."

At the park, watching kids play, a little girl came up to me and said, "They are having very fun!"
"They sure are having very fun," I told her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Have some very fun this week, and don't expose your tiny whineys!
Take care and keep a smile.

  1. Kids are so fun to listen to! I love when they are little and still learning words and how to arrange them. I'll have to warn Aaron to wear a belt, I don't want him to be embarrassed for having his tiny whineys exposed.

    1. No. Don't let embarrass both of you by revealing his tiny whineys, BabySis.

  2. Only exposing those to my wife!
    I wonder what the dentist said in response?

    1. I imagine she laughed and turned red, but maybe she just said "I don't provide those types of services," Alex.

  5. About the time you were having your first birthday party, I was watching Art Linkletter (I only remember doing this at my grandma's) who had a section of his program called, "Children Say the Strangest Things" or something like that

    1. Was that "Kids say the Darndest Things," Sage. You're making me feel awfully young. Thank yo, kindly. You appear more youthful than me, though - all those rugged adventures you undertake.

  6. Kids have a way of using their little vocabularies in the most creative ways and refreshing my old mind. I sure enjoy the grandkids --and yes, even their parents still come up with one-liners that spin my head around.

    1. I'm glad you have grandbabies, Geo. I wish I did. But you've earned them. I haven't.

  7. My little sister is a similar vintage as you and she had one of those Fisher-Price TV toys too. Oooooooo, the screen moved when you turned the dial -- so high tech for those days -- LOL!

    1. I LOVED those, Debra. I'd rather have a Fisher Price TV than a high def big screen whatever the lastest, most trendy model of a TV is.

  8. Kids really do have a remarkable way of looking at the world and expressing themselves. I'm glad to hear that having those munchkins around is making you laugh more. Now, let's hope we all have some very fun this week.

  9. I think that all tiny whineys should be kept covered.
    As should dentists.
    Lots of smiles here, and I hope your week is full of very fun.

    1. Joanne, first, it's so great to see you again! Thank you for stopping by. Second, I'm going to look for one at Target. I want that Fisher Price TV.

  13. very cute picture and kid comments. They do come up with clever stuff and don't know it. Glad you shared. That made me smile on a Monday.

  14. It's very fun to listen to them! "Are you going to seduce me?" is almost what Ben Braddock said to Mrs Robinson. The age difference might have been similar as well.

    1. You're right, GB. I hadn't even made that connection.

  16. Hi human, Robyn,

    Some might say that dogs say the darndest things. And yes, human children come up with some of the funniest stuff out of their gentle innocence.

    Must go now and give Gary an extra portion of my doggy breath! Arf!

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

    Penny xx

  18. Don't you love what can fly out of kid's mouths?

    My friend asked his son if he had a good day at preschool.
    "Yes! We had hot ham sandwiches for lunch!"
    "Did you like them?"
    "No! They were cold!"

    hehehe

    1. Haha! Too funny, Theresa. Yeah, I supposed if I had to eat a cold hot ham sandwich, I wouldn't like it either.

  19. That first boy must have just watched The Graduate. I like my hubby's tiny whineys well...they are not that tiny:)

  20. Kids do say the best things, it's the innocence that let's them get away with it. Both little stories are adorable.

    1. And often they are less innocent than they appear, but they still get away with it. Thank you, Rhonda.

  21. Pretty sure that wasn't a little girl that came up to you but rather, an alien trying to impersonate a human. I'm also sad that names were changed in this post because I do hope people are still naming their kids "Willy." The thing is, who is teaching these kids words like "seduce" or "tiny whineys"?

    1. That's entirely logical, Pickleope Von Pickleope.

      I used to teach a red haired, freckle faced Willy. He was a sweet kid, and probably the last Willy. This was many years ago.

      Well "seduce" and "seduction" are all over the place, except in my place. And "tiny whineys"? - seen those. But I think it just came out of his cute mouth.

    Love,

  23. I think I had one of those TVs too. My youngest hasn't stopped talking since he learnt how to - it's been 9 and a half years of none stop noise!

  24. Haha! So funny. Kids are such unintentional comedians. Love the old photo! :)

  25. Kids def. are awesome. :) And I just bought my son tiny whineys for the first time ever. He usually had cute prints, like Star Wars or Angry Birds, lolol

  26. I don't know why this came to mind - but I wonder what Martha Stewart's favorite toy was? Mine was M&M's - yep, I played with my food!

  27. That's very cute picture Robyn. Lovely.

    Yeah kids are funny alright. My daughter cracks me up everyday. She was asking about her teacher being away and I said she was on her honeymoon. Reply, 'She's on a honey moon? I think you made that up.' haha

  28. You were adorable and you still are! I wish I still had my Barbiemobile! It was peachy pink with a chrome (silver plastic) steering wheel. Would be worth a fortune today.
