Kids Say the Darndest Things, Vol. I

I was heading off for my daily kip when I realized that I had put the blanket and comforter from my bed into the wash, and they weren’t finished yet. Never one to let a minor inconvenience come between me and forty winks, I stopped by the playroom to ask my five-year-old if he would mind if Mommy borrowed his comforter to wrap up in for her Quiet Time.

He looked up at me with his big brown eyes, and in the sweetest, most concerned voice, asked, “Will it get cancer on it?”

You can’t make this stuff up.

    Oh, thank you for that giggle. I think your 5 year old and my 5 year old should get together and compare notes. I bet they’d have us laughing well into the night.

    My son aged 9 was sincerely concerned that I would become a mutant from the radiation in radiotherapy!!!!!

    Awww…mine was 12 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A bit old for adorable comments but his first question was asking if I got cancer from liking to tan.

    Guess those anti-tan commercials are working.
