Never too Young for Sarcasm!

One of my favorite things about me ... Yes that's right, I often sit back and think "Hmmmm what is my favorite thing about me..." But then I stop, because we all know there are too many awesome qualities to count!!! Ok back on track... One of my favorite things about me is my sarcasm. Sarcasm is a wonderful tool to possess in life. (When used during appropriate times that is. *Note to me* Blog about inappropriate uses of sarcasm soon.....)

But even better than being a sarcastic little spitfire, I have created THREE sarcastic little monsters as well! (YAY ME!)


Example:

Irritated 6 year old sits back and watches as brother and sister decide to play with their toys instead of help him with the "Cleaning" portion of the afternoon.


Smart child bellows out, "It's ok guys. You just sit there and keep playing. I'll go ahead and clean this all up on my own. I'm sure it will be LOTS of fun!"


Sniff Sniff....I'm so proud of him!!!

And I am happy to have provided him with the best gift ever!!! (next to Potty Gnome...but he's mine and I'm not sharing!)

I am sarcastic too! :-) Cheeky and ironic also. It gets me into trouble at times! Although, most people don't get it. lol

Marybeth said...

Sarcass away! Irony rocks! (and yes many people do not understand...thus possibly going to have to post inappropriate times to use sarcasm....)

Love it! Your post brought a smile to my face because I could just picture it! :) Scary how kids tend to pick up on all of our wonderful qualities!

Sara said...

Love it! I can't wait until my children can actually get sarcasm.

Not necessarily sarcastic I know but I have to share this:

I was changing our 6 month old in the bedroom, daddy was in the lounge and 4 year old was in the bathroom.

I shouted to daddy: "Have you made Heather's milk yet?"

He replies: "No!" (Man of many words my fella!)

4 year old shouts from the bathroom: "Why the bloody hell not?"

Needless to say she was quietly reprimanded for the language while daddy and I hid our giggles! I truly felt like Yoda at that moment!

Jessica said...

LOL!
I've heard my kids yell at each other saying exactly what I say to them. It's impressive. :-)

*snicker*

You should be very proud!

Marybeth said...

Danyelle I am!!! I think I deserve a mother of the year award! LOL

(I suppose...possibly...there may be better, more wholesome ways of winning an award like that...but still!)

This is so funny to me...I used to teach kindergarten way back in the day (read before I had my daughter) and every single time I had an evaluation it would say "Watch sarcasm with the kids."

My prinicpal swore that there was no way those little ankle biters (she always said that, sigh) understood sarcasm. Finally, one year I'd had enough and I drug her out to the playground and made her listen for the sarcasm they all had all the time...

let's just say... I got that taken off my evaluation :)

Funny. I have this baby monitor in the diaper bag, the receiver of which randomly (and often) turns itself on -- usually when I stop or start the car. It makes this annoying beeping sound, but the bright side is that it's taught my daughter the art of sarcasm. Whenever it turns on now, she will say (as she's heard me say a million times), "Yay! My favorite song is playing again! THAT'S not going to drive me crazy at all!" She also says, "Yippee" in this really unenthusiastic tone when we hit traffic jams.

Sometimes I catch my 5th graders being sarcastic - one girl in particular. She is the epitome of precocious (sp?). I read her journal entries (we journal every morning) and laugh all the time because it sounds like a sarcastic adult wrote them.

Katie said...

P.S. Did my email get lost in cyber space? I sent you another one!

Marybeth said...

I did Katie...I sent another one back...maybe it's MY emails getting lost. I added you to my Yahoo IM though. Give me a holla when you are online :D
