The things kids say

Children are such a joy! The things they say can be funny, unique, precious and insightful.  Today I just want to share with you some of the wonderful things my kids have said over the years.

Prince Quotes:

Age 5

Prince: Mommy, what’s ‘paradise’?
Me: A place where everything is perfect.
Prince: Well – this house is paradise.

An excerpt from Prince’s prayer:
Please may you spread out your wings like an angel around us that you may protect us from the bad people; that it can act like a shell.

Prince: What are those little bags made out of?
Me: A kind of plastic.
Prince: Oh, I thought so. I didn’t think of that!

Whilst watch a French cartoon: Mommy – Do French people know what they are saying?

Princess: I am a very, very beautiful person.
Prince: Princess! You are not quite a person yet!

On hearing someone mention “toiletries”, Prince looked up and said with a giggle: Toilet trees?!?!?!

Daddy: Can’t you fly?
Prince: No!
Daddy: How do you know – have you tried?
Prince: Yes

On noticing Prince picking his nose on the train…
Me: Prince, don’t do that.
Prince: Why?
Me: Because it’s not nice for other people.
Prince: But I’m not going to SHARE it with them!

Age 4

Prince, completely out of the blue: It makes sense, right?  If a kid is 8?

Prince was holding a tape measure: Mommy, how much do you inch?

Pushing his bread roll away: Here Daddy – you can have this.  The butter is embarrassing!

Princess quotes:

Age 3

Princess: I’m going to be an adult, soon.
Me: Oh, boy!
Princess: [giggles] No, Mommy! I’m a girl!

Sitting opposite her brother at the table:  I am oppositting you!

Princess: Mommy I’m REALLY hungry. I really want something that’s light green, and round.
Me: Like what?
Princess: A grape.

Trying to tell me her tights and panties are falling down: Ah! My bottom is falling apart!

Conversations with a 3 year old at 2am…
Princess: Mommy, I like water, don’t I?
Mommy: Mmm.
Princess: Water is healthy, isn’t it?
Mommy: Mmm.
Princess: It gives us exercise!
Mommy: [blank, sleepy stare]
Princess: We have energy, don’t we?
Mommy: (reluctant) Mmm.
Princess: But Uncle Ryan doesn’t have energy, does he, NO.

Daddy suggested Princess climb up and kiss Uncle Ryan. Her response was: Daddy – you do it.

Princess: “Mommy – when I think of something of my in head, I pray about it.”

Explaining a picture she has drawn:
This is a turtle. A turtle’s head. Been cut, by the people. And it’s crying with bursting tears.

Right after eating a whole slice of Daddy’s toast, drinking Daddy’s drink & drinking Mommy’s drink, at 8:40am:
Mommy, I’m hungry. Because I haven’t had lunch today.

Princess seemed to have pins & needles: Hey! My feet are bizzing!

Princess’ comment to me one morning: I wish your hair was like Micah’s, Mommy.

Age 2

Princess: I’m a Little Big!
Me: You’re a Little Big?
Princess: Yes, I’m a Little Big, and you are a Humongous Big.

    They really are! I think we should add “oppositting” to the dictionary – it’s such a nice word 😉

Leave me a comment! I love to hear from my readers :)
