Hibby says at the dinner table…

by heirtoblair on August 23, 2012

Harrison says:  “I fork my chicken!”

What he means:  “I use my fork to eat my chicken!”

What it sounds like:  “I fuck my chicken!”

Dear God, how I love toddlerhood.

Yep, heard that at my dinner table too!

My almost five year old said something very similar the other night… both my husband and I couldn’t stop laughing at what it “sounded” like.

Oh Toddlerhood! lol My 2 year old loves Thomas the train and Percey – sounds like…well I think you know what Percy sounds like from a toddler! Good lord!! lol

When my oldest was 2, we were in Walmart walking around in the toy section and he was yelling “Look Mommy!! Percy!! I need Percy!!” Two teenagers were walking by and I’ve never seen a teenager gasp like these ones did and then they started giggling! And of course… so did we then! lol

That. Is. Forking. Awesome.

I love it. At least he uses his fork? Mackenzie tries and then FLIPS OUT. Or maybe that’s just when she’s being Miss Crabbypants and everything that she can’t do is the END OF THE WORLD.

When do they become super efficient at eating properly again? I hope at least by the time she goes off to college! ;-)

Just make sure he spoons the chicken after he forks it. It’s only fair to stick around and snuggle.


Erin Lane August 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Amy, I may have just wet my pants a little.

I think the important thing to take away from this post, BA, is that you were eating chicken. That’s right – chicken. As in lean poultry, recommended by the FDA as an excellent source of protein.

Do you see that, lurking trolls? Chicken! She was eating chicken!



Amy the-bmg August 23, 2012 at 12:36 pm

For the. longest. time. my child called clocks, “cocks” and magnets, “maggots.” First time she saw “maggots and dat cock!” at a store, I thought I was NEVER going to stop laughing. The people around me didn’t seem to think it was nearly as funny…


Johanna August 23, 2012 at 12:45 pm

We have the same problem with chalk. Which is hilarious on days we can’t go outside and she sits at the door crying for “Coooooock.”


jess liv August 23, 2012 at 12:52 pm

dying laughing at this & the comments that followed, though i don’t believe you actually ate the chicken, hibby forked it good, but not you, because i didn’t see it on instagram!


Sara @ Maurer Power August 23, 2012 at 1:11 pm

LOL….I needed that today. Forking hilarious!


Erin Lane August 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Awesome. Totally and completely awesome.


Amanda August 23, 2012 at 1:50 pm

This made me snort Dr Pepper through my nose! I love kids and their mispronunciations. My daughter couldn’t pronounce ‘pizza’ correctly for the longest time. Instead, she would say pissy – only replace that ‘i’ with a ‘u’. Imagine her running around telling everybody that she loved that.


Heather August 23, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Ice Cream = Ass Cream in my house..lol


Melissa August 23, 2012 at 2:02 pm

My friend’s son couldn’t say clock and you can imagine what it sounded like.


Jessica E. August 23, 2012 at 2:03 pm

So how many times did you have hime say it so you guys could laugh????


Stephanie August 23, 2012 at 3:25 pm

For my boys it was bridges and holes. Daddy builds roads so it was nothing for them to sit around talking about “bitches and hoes”. Cracked me up every time!


Erin August 23, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Ice Cream = Hakeem in our house….so I hear a lot of “I need me some Hakeem real bad momma” from my daughter :)

omg..i can’t stop laughing


Jocelyn Sexton August 24, 2012 at 9:39 am

LOL… I love that!


Holly Wyckoff August 24, 2012 at 3:03 pm

My son loves dump trucks. But to him they are dumb f*ucks. I explain this to strangers at least 5 times a day


Alison August 25, 2012 at 5:00 am

Kids are forking awesomesauce!!


Melanie August 26, 2012 at 12:03 am

For some strange reason my son calls hooks hookers. We took him for a walk in his wagon one day and he had to bring a bungi cord along with him in the wagon. Halfway down the block he was yelling “Mom my hooker is stuck. Momma help get my hooker”. Oh I don’t want to try to explain why my son keeps talking about hookers at his christian daycare.


Jess M. August 26, 2012 at 1:01 pm

I told my daughter to tell my husband ‘Dad, baloney!’…it came out ‘Dad, blow me!’ We DIED.
