I'm really sorry about this one

We have a collection of Amelia Bedelia books (want your own free collection? Name your kid Amelia and then just wait) and there's one part that always cracks me up. Because I am a 12 year old boy with a dirty mind. But come on:

"But before she could get the words out, Mr. Rogers put something in her mouth. It was so good, Mrs. Rogers forgot about being angry."

Totally not my fault.

Teehee. Scandal all around. Love it.

I'm totally with you in the gutter. With your tranny doll.

OK, then I don't feel so bad about silently cracking up during the Runaway Bunny when the little bunny says, "If you become the wind and blow me....."


And I hear ya on the 12 year old boy mind. The cable company here is Cox Communication, and I just can't say it without snickering.

Also, Donna? YES. I feel dirty and wrong, somehow, reading that out loud to children.

You are such a perv!

This one always makes me snicker....
From "The Runaway Bunny"

“If you become a sailboat and sail away from me,
I will become the wind and blow you where I want you to go.

Seriously, I have problems.

LOL - I can't say that I've encountered anything similar in our book collection.

I think I actually remember this one -- was it the one where Amelia Bedelia babysits a baby for the first time, and Mrs. Rogers gets pissed at her for doing such a bad job, but then all is forgiven with the wonderful strawberry tarts (i.e., the "something" referred to in your quote) A.B. made? Because if it is, I am way impressed with my memory.

Man, I loved those Amelia Bedelia books. However, I did not love my fellow second graders, who teased me to tears because I pronounced the names "EM-uh-li-a BED-uh-li-a", just like my non-native-English-speaking mom did.

'Why are you laughing so hard mommy. It's not a joke!' :)

Oh, my!
The only Sophie book we have is "Sophie is Angry!"

It's actually quite good.

And now I need to find those books and re-read them. What was put in her mouth?

God, I loved those books.

Mr. Rogers sounds like a both shrewd negotiator AND a smooth operator.

You're not alone, I thought the same thing ...


my emily is actually emily elizabeth. ask me how much clifford crap i have in my house...

I remember that story. It was the one where Amelia Bedelia came to clean the house and when asked to "draw the drapes" she actually drew them. I loved those books, but then again I wasn't a 12 year old boy with a dirty mind. =)

I have spent my whole life striving for baked goods as delectable as Amelia's... that kind of response is really like a baker's wet dream, isn't it? -- I totally had all of the books. Ms. Bedilia rules. ;)

Don't worry, I would have caught it too :)

I haven't laughed that hard in awhile

Ha! I say embrace your inner 12 year old boy. That was funny.




For me, it's Green Eggs and Ham and "Could you, would you with a goat?" Gets me every time! I'll have to volunteer to read in libraries when the youngest gets too old for the book, just so I'll be able to giggle like a schoolboy.

Oh I loved the Amelia Bedelia books when I was little. Draw the curtains, prune the hedges... that crazy Amelia was always being so literal. Love it.

Gah. Molly loves the Amelia Bedelia books and I CAN'T STAND THEM. She is now forbidden to ask me to read them... she has to ask her father.

Heeee. And here I thought I was the only one reading something into "Could you, would you with a goat?"

Oh, I don't blame you. I found myself giggling through HP5 the movie. "Don't put your wand away yet, Harry!" "Ron: So what was it like? Harry: Kind of...wet."

Okay. I'll stop now.

One word: ick!

Wow! I had forgotten all about those books! I probably haven't thought of them since I last read them as a small child. Wow I loved them...

Amelia has turned into a perv since I last read her.

If I have a girl baby next :) I want to name her husband is against it because of Amelia I'll definitely NOT show him this post. :)
