Conversations With My Kids

Cole Age 4


I walk up the stairs and see Cole trying to load a 1/16th scale John Deere 4-wheel drive tractor onto a flatbed semi trailer toy:

Me:  Is your tractor broke down or are you selling it?

Cole: The damn thing has an oil leak again and they can't fix it here so I am taking it to the John Deere store!

TRUE STORY HIS EXACT WORDS -He obviously lives on a working farm and spends a lot of time around the equipment!  And he didn't get in trouble for cussing because I was trying not to laugh out loud and if my tractor had an oil leak AGAIN I would probably cuss too, so who could blame him!

  1. This cracks me up and sounds exactly like something that would come out of my dad or brother-in-law's mouth and probably my nephew's as well!

  2. My first sinful words came at the grand age of 1 and an half. After listening to my grandpa and dad "farm talk" all weekend, I, legend has it, passed along a few choice words from the bottom of the stairs to the top of the stairs where my little brother was crying. Mom was mortified!

    It reminds me of that Rodney Atkins song, "I've Been Watching You." (I would have laughed too!)

  3. Too cute! (And sooooo little farm boy-ish!) It would have taken me a minute to compose myself in that case too.

  4. Awesome! Sounds like my house. Too bad you live in Indiana, and I live in Kansas. We'd have two boys who'd play till the cows came home (literally!) Hope the John Deere guys can fix it for him! Happy Friday!

  5. I was about to write, "Awesome, that sounds like my house!" and then I saw the comment above mine. But it's still true.

  6. Man, the things they say are better than any story we could make up! Great one.

  7. Oh that's great!! I constantly have to walk away from my nephew when he's helping us with the cows. We're in the middle of breeding right now and as soon as I got to the farm tonight he informed me that W11 was "getting pounded". I love it!!

  10. So funny! Trying to hold in the laughter, while wanting to yell at them and at the same time bursting with pride that they want to be "just like daddy"! Love it!
