Kids say and do the funniest things! Considering I live with four and spend much of my time with them, I have decided to share some of the laughable moments which ensue at our house on a regular basis. From my niblings…to yours!

Niblingism #13 – Just Another Dinner with Niblings!

Niblings at the Table! So we were sitting at dinner the other night. We had a guest and were attempting to be… civil? Polite? Okay, I’m not really sure what we were trying to be, but I can tell you we were NOT trying to be overwhelming. Or too unusual for that matter. We didn’t succeed. …

Niblingism #12 – I Think I Created A (Nibling) Monster!

My nibling is a… Whovian? (Side note: Whovian refers to being a member of the Doctor Who fandom.) A few months back I showed my niblings Doctor Who. I thought they would enjoy it, especially Joshua (My 9 yr old nibling). And he did. One might even say he enjoyed it too much. Honestly, it’s …

Niblingism #11 (An Eyewitness Account of Niblings in Their Natural Environment)

Niblings in the car! So, we were driving in the car the other day. My sister was driving, 5 niblings are in the back. Kyalie (age 14) got corrected about something I don’t even remember. Instead of responding politely, she responded with, “but…” I interrupted and told her to say, “yes ma’am.” And then Nathan …

So, our house is currently packed with a new nibling (Born February 23!!) and excited grandparents. The children have been quite amusing the last week, however, one instance topped the cake. Abi (four years old) found a kid’s watch in a bedroom and came running out exclaiming, “It’s three at night!” We all laughed and …

A few days ago I was babysitting all four niblings. I decided to take Nathan (3 years old) outside to play with Joshua (7 years old) and Abi (4 years old). The minute I walked out the door I was greeted by Joshua. He followed his greeting with, “We’re playing Mine Craft!” Just then Abi …

“Niblingism” #8

Yesterday morning, my brother-in-law, Josh, was cooking breakfast when four year old Abi decided to pop into the kitchen with an important question. “Daddy.” She said politely. “Yes, Abi?” Josh replied. “Can we play Wii?” “No.” “Well, can me and Kyalie play Wii?” “No.” “Well, can me and YOU play Wii?” “No Abi. It doesn’t …

“Niblingism” #7

A few days ago Joshua (7yrs old) came into the living room and started chatting up a storm about anything he could think of. Then, after glancing at the empty TV screen, he looked back at me and continued his monologue… “You know what I think about Netflix? I think it’s full of Turbo Fast …

“Niblingism” # 6

Here’s a conversation to make you chuckle…. I was sitting by the computer today with 3yr old Nathan on my lap. He was having fun playing with my necklace when he noticed my bra strap had slipped. This is what followed: “Why are you wearing that?” “Because I’m a girl.” “Is grandpa a girl?” “No. …

“Niblingism” #5

Yesterday morning my sister and I went to our ladies Bible Study, as we do every week. Without putting much thought into it, we left all four children at home to spend time with their dad. However, Dad was very tired and had watched a movie with the kids in the living room. He had …

“Niblingism” #4

While we were hanging out outside the doctor’s office today, waiting for my sister’s appointment to finish, Joshua (age 6) and Abi (age4) were deep in conversation. The topic: superheroes. Joshua was in the middle of explaining “girls like Spider-Man….and Spider-Man likes girls.” When all of a sudden his attention was diverted and he yelled, …
