Fun Friday - Ask Amanda advice out of the mouths of babes.

My Musings on Life, "Ask Amanda" kid advice.

Ask Amanda funny things kids say and advice from Mandy Mayhem.
Mandy Mayhem has lots of advice. Just ask Amanda.

Amanda always takes her seat-belt off while I'm stopped on the street waiting to pick up the after-school kids.  One school is no big deal, the other is a busy city street.  Policemen and Crossing Guards direct cars.

Amanda: "What?  That policeman saw me and I didn't get arrested."

Mommy:  "What if we have an accident?"

Amanda:  "We're stopped."

Mommy:  "Well if a car doesn't see us stopped on the street and runs into the back of us you'll go flying thru the window.  You could get whiplash or even die!"  "What would I do with your Christmas presents if you died?"

Amanda: "Put them on my carving stone at the cemetery."

Mommy:  Speechless.

You know how people live on golf courses?  We live like that on a cemetery garden.  Yesterday and in the Spring, Hispanics gather to remember a slain country singer who escaped to America to flee would-be murderers.  I don't know the particulars, but they found him and killed him in a small town.  His gravestone is over 6' tall and nestled behind the trees in our backyard.  They bring him gifts, play music, and even have picnics.  I can only assume that is how she formed this hypothesis.
