Kids Say The Funniest Things: Olympics

My three year son Carl is not an Olympic fan, and tries to convince us all the time that Barney should be what is playing on the tube — what seems to be every moment of the day sometimes, but today was different. After we came inside from running around outside for hours we all stretched in the living room and turned on the television. As usual, here comes Carl with DVD in hand, and of course it was the purple dinosaur. Then all of a sudden we flipped the channel to the Olympics, at that moment it was the women diving. As usual we expected to hear him say, “No, I don’t want that,” but instead there was silence. We started putting the television on DVD mode and he got upset. We asked him why he was upset and all he could say was, “I want kids jumping water!” So now we know Carl’s favorite event is “Kids Jumping Water” and he loves to repeat the scores. “See Mommy she got lots of 9’s!”
