Some of the funniest moments have come from raising a family and certainly from my own children!  Here are some true stories while with my oldest daughter, Christine, now 28 years old!




The Police Are After Us!

Woman chaced and pulled over by police


When our oldest daughter, Christine, was quite young, I guess I didn’t “monitor” what we let her watch on TV as closely as we should have.  She would watch cops and robbers shows, including Miami Vice, and some other action type shows and movies. I was driving down the road one day in our town, and Christine was in the back in her car seat (I think she must have only been about 4 or 5 years old).  A policeman pulled me over as I was speeding.  As the policeman approached my car, Christine saw the gun on his belt – and then I knew I was letting her watch too many cops and robbers shows as she whispered to me,  “Mom, is he going to shoot us?????”  And I assured her, no, he was not going to shoot us.  We chucked over that one!





Another story when Christine was very small…


Who Is Wearing Diapers?


Years ago, Christine would occasionally as a toddler jump into the bed with my husband, Mike, and me.  One day, she noticed her Daddy happened to be wearing whiter briefs (I think they were new), and she pulled me over to the side and whispered, “Mommy, why is Daddy still wearing diapers???!!!!”  Out of the mouth of babes!




I hope you enjoyed these silly little funnies!  Maybe you would like to tell us about your funny family stories!  Join in – we would certainly like to hear from you!  I hope this brightens your week!

  • We have a cop story, too, only it was my father in law who was mistaken. Years ago, my oldest had some of those light up tennis shoes. They were made to look like police cars and the lights flashed red and blue. It never crossed my mind that it would be an issue…until we were following my father in law’s car one night…my son sat there smacking his little feet together to light up the shoes, I drove along blissfully unaware, and my father in law almost ran off the road because he thought the police were zooming up behind him. I don’t think he cared much for light up shoes of any kind after that!
