Juli sent us this funny story of family devotions gone awry. See you all Monday! Nicole for the girltalkers

My husband has been reading through the Old Testament with our young children. One night he asked them who the Israelites were not allowed to marry. Our 5 year old piped up “Charlotte!”

It took us both a few minutes to realize the word “harlot” had been translated in her mind to Charlotte. Needless to say, devotional time that night had a good dose of laughter!

Love this week’s Friday Funny from Tiffany. See you back here next week! Nicole for the girltalkers

Today was a cleaning/laundry day and while performing my duties I had the song ‘House of the Lord’ on my mind so I sang it out periodically not having a clue anyone noticed. There is a line that says, “Your Shepherd’s staff comforts me…”

Upon passing by my three-year-old daughter’s room I heard her gently singing, “Your Shepherd’s PIE comforts me..”

I praised her for singing to Jesus and asked her to sing it again to make sure I had heard correctly and yep, shepherd’s pie!

Guess it really is a comfort food!

Thanks, Erin, for sending in this Friday Funny. Have a great weekend y’all! Nicole for the girltalkers

I have a “Friday Funnies” story about my kiddiwinks all the way from Australia that I’d love to share!

My 3 and 1/2 year old daughter was questioning me as to her whereabouts prior to her birth, I replied with the age-old “You were a twinkle in God’s eye.”

She questioned me further “and where was Sam?”

I replied the same “he was a twinkle in God’s eye too.”

“And Jedd?”

“Another twinkle sweetie.”

“No Mum, God only has two eyes, he was a sniff in God’s nose.”

Ha! Can’t fault the logic there!

This one from Michelle is adorable. Have a happy weekend, friends! Nicole for Carolyn, Kristin, and Janelle

My mother had come for a visit when my daughter was about three years old. My mother has a gluten allergy so she tends to have a unique and separate meal from the rest of the family. My daughter, of course, greatly intrigued by Grandma’s meal asked for a bite. “Mmmmm, Grandma!” she exclaimed of the spoonful of plain yogurt, “Looks like ice cream, tastes like lunch.”

Debbie has a cute funny for us this week. See y’all Monday! Nicole for the girltalkers

I was early in my fourth pregnancy feeling quite tired and green. Needless to say, the house had not had much attention in a while. I walked into the living room to find my three year old daughter walking on the sofa. She knew that was not allowed in our home. So with the little energy I had I managed to gently remind her “Honey, you know you are not allowed to walk on the furniture.” Her sweet reply was simply, “Mommy I am not walking on the sofa…I am wiping the crumbs off my feet!” True Story!

Friday Funnies (on Monday)

The holiday weekend pushed the Friday Funnies to Monday. Enjoy this cute story from Laura:

One day my 4-year-old son and I were looking at a picture of myself from many years before he was born. We were talking about who was in the picture and he asked me, “Where am I?” I told him he wasn’t born yet. He thought for a second and asked, “So where was I, Mommy?” I didn’t answer right away as I was trying to figure out how to explain to a 4-year-old where he was before he was born! I guess he thought I was taking too long to answer so he said very matter-of-factly, “I was at Grandma’s.”

This week’s Friday Funnies comes from Debra. Too cute! Enjoy your weekend everyone! Nicole for the girltalkers

When my granddaughter Sophia, age 2, had been moved out of her crib and into a big girl bed, one of her rules for nap time was that she had to stay in bed and not look at books. She had done a good job with the transition and usually stayed in her bed. But one day when her mom went to check on her, she found her sound asleep out of her bed and on top of a book. The name of the book was “Hoorah, I Obeyed!”

Here is one of the honorable mentions from our recent Friday Funnies contest…love it! Have a great weekend everyone! Nicole for the girl talkers

From Sanny:

One evening, my husband was explaining to our 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter what it means to be tempted. He asks them, “Are you guys supposed to jump on beds?” To which they both replied, “No!” He then proceeded to ask, “Ellie, what if Micah said to you, ‘Hey Ellie! Let’s go jump on mommy and daddy’s bed! Here, I’ll even go first to show you.’ What would you say?” Our daughter Ellie’s eyes light up and she exclaims, “Yeah! Let’s do it!”

Good to know.

After our brief hiatus, we are back with the second winner of our Friday Funnies contest back in April. We have more funnies to share with you in weeks to come, but Rebekah is one of our winners with this funny story about a conversation with her daughter. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. See you back here Monday! Nicole for the girltalkers

This is from quite a while ago, when my first child was about 5 years old. Now, at 12, I think she’s reconsidered her position, but it remains to be seen…

On a car trip, she calmly informed me she would name her first daughter, “Marinade.” Trying not to laugh, I asked her why that name.

“Because it sounds pretty,” she replied.

“I suppose you could call her ‘Mary’ for short?”


“Um, do you know what marinade means?”


So, I explained it to her, and asked “You wouldn’t want to name your child after food, would you?”

“Well,” still perfectly serious, “Noah named his son, ‘Ham.’”

Thanks to all who made our Friday Funnies contest a great success! Today you get to enjoy a story from Sarah, the first of our two winners. There will be many more to come over the next few months.

A few days ago my almost 5 year old, Sam was getting a bit too bossy with his 3 year old sister, Selah. Trying to keep it light I asked him, “Sam, who died and made you the boss?” His reply, “Jesus.” We’re working on the rest of his theology!
