Oh my, she looks like a twin of my son.. He has an answer for everything, it drives me nuts.

Ex. 1:
Me: Stop touching everything!
Him: What, I can't even touch the ground? And the air around me?
Me: %&ç*&(

Ex.2:
Teacher: Do your writing exercise, it's important to write correctly!
Son: Why? Everybody has computers now.

Re: Cute things kids say

Bedtime story about a tiger led (somehow) to questions about earthquakes in Switzerland, then the rest of the world. Then right to the point-

"Why is there the Earth?"
uh, ok, brief description of the Big Bang
little Mud is no dummy, why and how are different
"No, WHY is there Earth, I mean everything? WHY?"
that's a good question Bubba, um,
little Mud turns to face me, wide eyed-

"It's the Greatest Mystery EVER!"

Yep, you're 100% right. Now go to sleep. Now I can't sleep.

My step-daughter's four year old really enjoys the breakfast I gave her mum the recipe for when they stayed with us last year.
She announced ' I really like that burglar muesli' !

Re: Cute things kids say

Son: Mommy, can a black person have a baby with a white one?
Me: of course Sweetie.
Son: and what colour will the baby be???
Me: Well, it depends. Normally a bit lighter than the black parent.
Son: can the baby have stripes like a zebra???

Re: Cute things kids say

My 5 year old daughter needed to urgently use the bathroom just as I was getting out of the shower...

"Mom, why are your boobs so long?" I wanted to DIE! ...and not of laughter!
I very calmly explained that if it wasn't for her and her 3 siblings my boobs would be absolutely PERFECT!

And last night 4 years old's logic:

Mommy doesn't have a penis but daddy does.

Re: Cute things kids say

I just had a surreal bedtime conversation with my 5-year-old.

5-y.o.: "Daddy, does the Earth die?"
Me: "Um ... well, it won't die for a very long time. Not while you or I are still here."
5-y.o.: "Not for millions of years? Not till the Sun dies?"
Me: "Right. Not for many millions of years."
5-y.o.: "But you will die soon."
Me: "Er ... no, not for a long time. I don't ever want to leave you!"
5-y.o.: "You'll have to leave me soon."
Me: "Why's that, darling?"
5-y.o.: "I'll be a daddy soon."
Me: (stifling a laugh) "Really? How soon?"
5-y.o.: "I think in five days. Maybe six."

I didn't even know he had the lucky future mother of his children lined up already.

My son decided that he will go on living with me with his future wife and the kids, so that I don't feel lonely and I can babysit his children.

I'm sure his wife will love the idea!

Last week my 4 year old went outside to find it cold & triumphantly declared "I can smell the snow coming".
I've just joined the EF and this thread has really made me laugh. 4 year olds know everything (I have a 4.5 year old).

My son had a similar idea when he was younger; he said when he was all grown up I could live with him. I said, oh, that's very nice of you, I can clean your house and do your laundry. He answered no, you don't have to do any of that. Only cooking.
