Re: Cute things kids say

I took my then 3 year old to daycare one morning and when we walked in I said happy birthday to one of the staff members. I turned to my daughter and asked, "what do we say when it's someone's birthday?" She eagerly replied, "where's the cake?"

Re: Cute things kids say

My daughter was recently plotting some small naughty thing on the bus and I said to her, "I can see the wheels in your head turning."

"I don't have wheels in my head!" She said, indignantly.

"I know, you have a brain in your head, not wheels," I conceded.

"NO! I have NO brains in my head!"

Re: Cute things kids say

Kids spelling:

I like to watch the Canadian news at TV5 Monde in the morning. My daughter hates it because it is during her cartoons (but I am the boss, right?)

Anyway, the TV is programmed to switch automatically to that channel and every morning, my daughter will say:

- No Cadana, tantot Cadana, ok?

And more I tell her the proper spelling, the more she argues with me that it is not Canada but Cadana.

A touch of reverse psychology on the teacher so she melts and doesn't punish anybody....
I'll bet you didn't dish any out after that.

Aww...Naw, I dished I dished, but the punishment is work and they like to show me they can do it.

One cannot ever afford not being consistent

Re: Cute things kids say

Driving home earlier, my son was moaning about the fact he is not allowed play Wii today (long story)

..muttering 'n' moaning away in the back of the car, he said:

"I am really annoyed at you!!"

My husband asked him which one of us parents was he annoyed at, he then said:

"The one on the left!"

This was followed by those awful parental moments we all know well, when you twist your face into all sorts of amazing contortions and put hands over your mouth as much as possible in the hopes that no squeals of laughter will escape and further annoy the cranky had-enough-of-the-world kid in the back of the car.

'tis a tough job, my friends, a tough job..

Re: Cute things kids say

My 3 year old had some jabs yesterday, and refuses to take her plaster off. First thing she did when she woke up was make sure it was still there.
Anyway, she was sitting on my knees and I was telling her to get up and she said said. 'Don't talk mummy, or my plaster will fall off' Which had me in hysterics, so she retorts 'no funny (laughing) or talking or my plaster will fall off' She also can not walk properly, and limps with her entire right side, but it's OK to dance.

Re: Cute things kids say

One of my student's parents called me and said we had to cancel lessons that day because my student was in the hospital. Details werent very clear yet but she will keep me updated. The next day, I received a call from her with news that the poor boy has broken his arm due to a fight and we'll have to cancel lessons for the rest of the term.

I asked to speak to him and the conversation went something like this:

Me: Hello my darling, how are you?
Him: I broke my arm.
Me: Yes I heard, how did you break it?
Him: I got into a fight!
Me: Oh no, why would you do that?
Him: Because (child's name) called me an ugly ginger!
Me: *tries not to laugh* Yes but that is no reason to start a fight. What did you hope to achieve? And I think being a redhead is beautiful.
Him: He is uglier than me. So he CANNOT call me ugly! Will you come and see me soon Mrs X?

*speechless*

Re: Cute things kids say

Not cute.

8-year old football mad boy talking aloud as he carefully typed into Google:

"Gary...Speed...dead"

My response: "Hey, what are you doing? Cut that out...he was a good player and he died and Daddy's upset and shocked. Now get off the computer right now"

Re: Cute things kids say

"Well son...so what do you think a computer's really for?"
"It's for checking if the cinema is for big boys or little boys"

Oh great, I've bred a 5-year old Wirtschaftsinformatiker

The 8-year old is also on form.
It involves Hardware and a hard Swiss floor. Guess the rest.

"Do you know exactly what you broke?"
"No"
"It's called an HDD."
"HDD - that's a nice name, I wish I was called HDD!"

God, give me strength.

Re: Cute things kids say

My four-year-old was very excited. "Daddy, I have something to tell you. They took a photo of me today!"

"Really, darling? Who took your photograph?"

"My photo! They took my photo! Not a photograph!"

"Yes, darling. Photograph is just the long way of saying photo."

"Oh. Photograph. That sounds funny!"

"Ummm ... OK ... So, where did you have your photo taken?"

Loooong pause. "You said it was called a photograph."

"Yes, darling."

"What's a phototaken?"

A friend came over to Switzerland and her children where all clued up about the new language. Her 5 year old girl was very disappointed when she realized the television had learned German faster than she had.
