A Case of the Funnies with Carver John

The past week of blog posts has really focused on my son Gannon and his medical issues. Today’s blog post is all about our spunky three year old Carver and the HILARIOUS things he says.


OUT OF THE BLUE at the dinner table, Carver asked a very serious question:

“Mommy, why is President Trump not in our’s hearts anymore?”

Now before this gets political, I want you to know our family does not talk politics. I have NO idea where this came from.


Do you remember the blog post about the mysterious brown substance in our bed? Do you remember how Carver admitted to sneaking chocolate chips upstairs in the pocket of his moose pajamas? If not, check out this blog post: http://www.thepinkshoelaces.com/night-light/

Well, I was doing laundry the other day and look what I found:

Can you guess what it is? If you guessed “a pocket full of chocolate chips that has been through the washer and dryer” – you would be correct.


Carver is working on his “necting” skills and experimenting with tape. It is truly amazing how long these four pieces of cardboard kept this three year old busy.


Carver and Daddy were going to put together a piece of furniture. Carver needed to CHANGE HIS CLOTHES!

“DON’T START WITHOUT ME DADDY! I NEED TO GET MY JEANS ON FOR MY TOOLS TO GO IN MY POCKET! MOMMY I NEED A PLAID SHIRT WITH A POCKET! Look mom! I can do my buttons!”

I didn’t have the heart to tell him how crooked his shirt was buttoned.


*stealing chips from the counter*

“Mommy don’t yell at me for taking these chips!”


This particular bible verse sparked a lot of questions one morning:

  • “Why is his beard on his belly?”
  • “Which one is Cain and which one is Abel?”
  • “Why did him break his stick?”
  • “Me not kill anyone!”
  • “Me not kill Gannon! Me love Gannon! Gannon is my brother!”
  • “How did him kill him with a rock?”
  • “Are those sheep scared?”
  • “Why did him kill him’s brother?”
  • “Me not kill anyone, that is bad.”
  • “Him go to jail?”
  • “Him can’t go live with Jesus?”
  • “Papa moo lives with Jesus.”
  • “Papa moo not kill anyone. Hims a nice guy.”

I think that’s enough bible study for the day.


*6 miles down the road*

“Are we still in Iowa?!”


Carver loves to help me with laundry and tell me which garments belongs to who.

“Mommy, why does Dadddy have so many boxings?”

I think he meant boxers.


This has been a case of the funnies with Carver John Friedman.
