Observations on how the world works, according to our kids…

Posted by admin on Oct 30, 2009 in Quotes from Kids |

I got to thinking about all of the cutie pie things my daughter has said to me over the last 6 or 7 years (not that her first year of girly gurples and tweets wasn’t cute, it just wasn’t coherent)….and I thought we should really have a section in the blog to record those tales that capture the essence of the world and what it’s all about from our kid’s points of view…I’ve been keeping a diary of these…here are a few from my household, and a friend’s household…I welcome any and all tales from your mud hut, mad house, or house of cards!

 –          At age 8: in reference to my boyfriend’s costume for Hallo’s Eve ….”Mom, J. should be a potato for Halloween (pause and contemplate for 15 seconds). Well, maybe he shouldn’t because then people might think he’s a piece of poopy.”   Hard to argue.

–          At age 8: “Mom, why are boys like THAT?” I have no answer.

–          At age 8: “Mom, why does that boy keep running up to me at recess and pulling my hair/pushing me/ laughing/etc. and then run away?” I tell her it’s because he likes her. That’s what boys do, I explain.  “Why don’t they just tell you?”  I have no answer.  Again.

–          At age 3: “Mommy, my butt itches…on the inside…”

–          At all ages: “I love you Mamma.” J (Also at all ages, “Go away MOM!”)

At my girlfriend’s house, which is now filled with 3 little angels, aged 6, 3, and “baby”…

–          The 6 year old: “Mommy, when I grow up I am going to be lots of things….a doctor to help people and then a vet to help animals…. an artist, a mommy , but of adopted kids because there are a lot of kids that need love out there….the president and a teacher ….I want to help everyone.  Unmoved and determined, her 3 year old says, “Mama, when I grow up, me be the Little Mermaid.”

–          The 3 year old: enters stage right, into my girlfriend’s room covered in finger paint; her hair was sticking straight up, primarily yellow, with multi-colored highlights…as was her face, her pajamas and her blankie.   My girlfriend asked the only logical question she could think of, “Did you get into your sister’s art box?”  “Yes,” she replied, clearly bored by the obviousness of the question.  Her reason for painting herself?  “Me not see any paper mama, and me wanted to have fun.”  Well, you really have to agree with her, don’t you?

Share your tales too please! I’d love to hear them…

    Nice, where are the teenager comments for the 14 – 15 year old set? Most of the time all I hear from my teenage daugther is please walk at least 10 feet behind me at all times, dont hang out in the same stores with me, and I will text you when it is time to come and pay! Any ideas on how to get your teenagers back into that “sweet” stage?

    Hi! I’m visiting from MBC! Great blog.

  • Robin says:

    My 4 year old nephew seriously calls a harmonica a “moronica”. Haaaaaaaa!

  • Robin says:

    Oh, and Johnny B. Good, spend as much time with your daughter and her friends as you can. She’ll act like she doesn’t like it, but she’ll secretly be happy and feel loved, which will pay off in the long run!

  • Swati says:

    Johnny….based on what my pals tell me, your best bet is to plough through and wait for her to outgrow it! Yikes…this makes me dread the teem years…:-)!

  • Swati says:

    Robin – thanks for sharing that – LOL! I think I’m going to start calling it a moronica too and see what happens!

  • Swati says:

    Hey Veronica – thanks for the visit…see you back at MBC too!

  • Marla says:

    The superlative of choice for my 4-year-old these days is “best/worst/biggest/favorite in the whole wide world even-in-China-even-in-Mexico!” The last six words are, of course, spoken as all one word 🙂

  • Swati says:

    Hey Marla – I just have to know if you’ve taken your 4 year old around the world – or if this is your offspring’s natural worldliness – very sweet & I am certain heads turn in amusement if you are in public….Swati

  • Donna says:

  • Swati says:

    OMG Donna!! Hilarious…but I do admire the sheer honesty in your niece’s observation :-).

  • jean says:

  • Swati says:

    Jean – LOL!! That is so funny, and I love how matter of fact Ethan is about it!!
