Birdie beaver

** 3/26 Update **

Running bud Greg is a Hawkeye fan.  I wonder if his girls even know cartoons exist on the boob tube, as they are mostly exposed to college ball games.  One of his daughters has become a Hawk fan.  He said when they are playing on TV, she runs around shouting "COCKEYES, COCKEYES, GOOOOOO COCKEYES!!"  He shushes her when his family sees them playing on the screen when out in public.

Nibbling on garlic focaccia the other night, Pigtails' eyes swelled as she said "Yes!  I love potacho bread, it's the best!"

What have you heard your little one say recently that made you laugh?  Share in the comments below!



"Pigtails, stop being a party pooper."

She wrinkled her nose up and blurted, "Huh?  A birdie beaver?!  What's a birdie beaver?!"

I laughed, she looked very confused.

What funny things have spouted forth from the mouths of your kids, nieces, nephews or pets?  Leave a comment below and let us know!



  1. As the mother of said "Cockeye" fan, I think I should share a quote from her big sister as well. Abby is a HyVee girl apparently and refers to Dahls and Fareway as "the Other HyVee" and calls American "the Furniture HyVee." They should recruit her for promoting business.

    Hey Beard, nice blog. I just started where you left off 7-8 years ago. I have a funny story about kids and what they say. Take a peak. I will keep reading and perhaps become a fan of yours. Nice writing.
