My kids are freaking hilarious!!!

Actual conversation around the supper table last night:

Me: Are you excited to go to school tomorrow Aiden?

Aiden: No. The school is hiding men.

Me: WHAT??? ( confused)

Aiden: The school is hiding men! (spoken like he believes they are trying to trick him)

Me: What kind of men?

Aiden: The men are hiding in the costumes. They are lying. They are bad!

Me: WHAT??? Where are they hiding??? (starting to feel slightly alarmed)

Aiden: I don't KNOW where they are but I am GOING to find out!! When I see one with his mouth open I am going to grab his face and look inside and SEE the human! They are tricky.

Owen: the Cat is in a costume and the Dog is in a costume and the Bee is in a costume. BUT I looked at the Bee's wrist and I SAW skin and I KNEW it was a HUMAN!!!

Me: oh (dissolving into laughter) you mean the MASCOTS at the parade!??

Owen: the CAT is a HUMAN! the DOG is a HUMAN! and the BEE is a HUMAN! I KNEW it had a zipper on the back! (spoken emphatically with conviction as though solving a great mystery)

Me: bwahahahahahahahahahahaha oh you guys they are just playing pretend! They aren't lying they are just PRETENDING to be a cat and a dog and a bee! Like Halloween costumes! bwahahahahahahaha (tears running down face from laughing so hard)

Aiden: (looking at me wondering why I am laughing) We KNEW it was a human so we have to get rid of those guys! (very serious)

Me: bwahahahahahahahahaha

boys: leaving table looking at me with disgust for clearly NOT understanding the gravity of the situation

Me, Doug, Grandma: howling with laughter

Grandma: wasn't the parade over a week ago?

Me: yep (still laughing)

Grandma: wow... they've really been thinking this over! We should have explained mascots to them.

Me: (holding sides from laughing) I'll get right on that.

You really should looking into WHY your school is hiding men. That sounds serious.
