Who here has smart alec little ones? What are some doozies they've said/done?

My ds is quite the smart alec. One day I had been trying to get him to get dressed for 20 minutes.
"(Ds) if you don't get your clothes on by the time I'm done changing laundry over I'm going to get your butt."
"No butt."
"Then what should you do?"
"Hide from you."

Another clothing battle (as the kid would rather be naked). "Put your clothes on." He then lays his shirt on top of his body. "No, but your clothes on your body!" He then puts his underwear on his head. Well, he's was following what I said...

My 5yo.
Tonight ds was going to sleep and dh was changing the baby's diaper. Ds yells "daddy be quiet! You are not helping the situation"

Ds "daddy move you 500lb body out of the way" (dh is 6ft and weighs around 225)
Dh "what did you say I weighed?)
Ds looks dh over "500lbs"
Me "ds what do I weigh?"
Ds "we'll... You're smaller than daddy so 400lbs"
Me " boy! I'm less than 200lbs"
Ds "yeah...but you're bigger than me"

This just happened yesterday. My 18-month old DD is pretty good about putting stuff away when asked...my 3.5 year old DS is usually not. Well, yesterday I asked both of them to clean up their crayons. DD started, but DS kept playing with his trains. I said "Keira you're so good at cleaning up" hoping that it would encourage DS to do it too. Well, he said matter-of-factly (and almost proudly) " I'm not!'

Do you ever find yourself trying to bite your tongue to stop yourself from laughing at some of these things?  Lol.  My son is a bit of a lil monster in that respect. Some of the naughty things he does makes me want to laugh so hard ...

Do your homework

But I want a snack

Well do the last two problems and you can have one

.......it would really suck of this ketchup packet accidentally exploded on your nice white shirt. (As he holds it and points it at me)


I actually have a notebook full of stuff he says. I write everything down.

His latest:

Where did you put my nook?
Idk I'll have to go find it
(He makes a fit pitching face)
Are you pitching a fit?
No. I'm just... Smiling in disappointment.

Or how about:

What do I have to do to be ungrounded?
Watch the Justin bieber movie and sing along to the songs.
...fine, I'll just be grounded.

Yeah, that's a kid for you LOL.  I hear it gets worse at they enter thier teen years LOL.

But, for us, we just ignore it or giggle to ourselves.  Or if they say "I will hide" i will say "well, lets see how good you are at that" and we play for a while.  They forget what they were even whining/smart assing about LOL
