Do you remember the television show ‘Kids say the darndest things’? There is no truer statement than this.
Whether my child is trying to convince me that “Cookies are good for supper.”
exclaiming that “I like farting.”
or telling my husband “Leave alone the baby.” while trying to avoid a diaper change.
She makes me laugh.
My 2 year old comes out with some doozies.
The double entendre: My daughter has recently become a fan of ‘Lady & the Tramp’. She especially loves the famous spaghetti scene where the two share a strand of spaghetti. This evening, she wanted to try this trick with mommy. She put the spaghetti in her mouth with the end sticking out. She looked at me so sweetly & said “Mommy tramp!”
Thanks baby! If I am the Tramp. I guess that makes you the Lady.
Things that a little con artist says: My daughter likes to watch television. I do not like her to watch too much and have set guidelines in regards to TV viewing. On one particular evening, our daughter asked my husband if she could watch one of her animal videos. My husband told her no. She asked if she could see Tangled, her sign language video, Mickey Mouse. No, no, & no. She paused for a moment & thought about it, then batting her little eyelashes at her daddy she asked “footbaaaaall?” She knows daddy’s weakness. She has also tried this tactic on her Nana, but with her it is “cooking channneeell?”
When there is a parrot in your midst: Our daughter repeats everything. We have to be so careful what we say. I have gotten in the habit of spelling in front of her when it is something I do not want her to hear. Recently, I went away on a business trip for 3 nights. I missed my family so much & was happy to see them when I got home. The day after I returned, I said to my husband “I hope Mai takes a nap soon so that mommy can have s. e. x. with daddy.” Our daughter laughed hysterically & started chanting “x with daddy. hahaha, x with daddy. I guess spelling is not such a good idea either.
What are some funny things your children have said? Please share.
