Re: Cute things kids say
 
Earlier this evening, I was giving lessons to a 8 year old boy. Right in the middle of scales, he stopped, turned to me and asked:

Him: Do you like gerkins, Mrs X?
Me: Excuse me?
Him: ger - kins!
Me: Actually, I am one of those who are quite partial to them. Back to what you were doing please..
Him: But I hate gerkins!
Me: *sigh* ok, why do you hate them?
Him: Because they taste like..like....well they dont even taste as nice as my nose boogers. Yuck. I hate gerkins.

He goes back to playing his scales like its normal to eat nose boogers and I was left sitting there trying to understand how a child's mind works. :msncrazy:

My 6-yeson just drew a picture for his mum's birthday card (which was last week...).

He asked me to scribe on his behalf:

Happy Birthday Mummy - We hope you have a nice time for the rest of your life, love ....

After a long afternoon at the park, the kids and I got home late and I had to throw together a quick dinner. I decided to make a pizza with whatever I had in the fridge. Not surprisingly, the resulting pizza didn't taste great, so I said to my girls "This isn't a very good pizza. Mummy's not the best pizza maker, huh?". My very sweet 5 year old nodded slowly in agreement and said "Don't worry mummy, you make the best toast in the world!"

After a month of being married, my 6 yr old is still practicing calling us "mom" and "dad". She calls me "Ate" (big sister in local lingo, long story) and calls my husband with his first name. The other day we were deep in conversation (arguing) and she just couldnt barge in so she burst out "MOTHER, FATHER, look!" ...im not sure why that made us laugh but do kids these days still call their parents "mother and father"?

Awwww....and all the effort and love we cram into cookin' for them, hahaha. Makes me think of the times we loved our slack ass commie school canteen with zero nutritional value so much better than mom's culinary masterpieces. We made her copy that bad food to minute details, instead of appreciating her good cooking. I get the same talk now, "mommy your fish is not like creche fish, your lasagna is not as good as theirs", when the food quality is actually better at home..

Life is one big repeat. :o

My three-year-old son has worked out how to get my attention. When I'm talking to someone else and he wants to say something, he tries "Daddy, daddy, daddy" a few times, and if I ignore him, he kisses me on the leg! Works every time. I always stop talking, melt, and listen to whatever urgent information he needs to impart.

He has me wrapped around his tiny little finger.

Aww. It will slowly progress to "It's me talking now, everyone listen up", don't worry.

It's tough to get them used to that people take turns in talking. The normal egocentric mindset is so cute. Does not last long.

i've been babysitting children for quite some time and they seriously keep me on my toes with their comments about the most random things.

me: "We cannot put our bare bums on the floor in public bathrooms"
child: "yupp, just like we cant eat bugs right?"

or

me: "would you two like vanilla ice cream?"
child 1: "yes! I get to have it because i say it right, but he doesnt.." *points to little brother*
child 2: "yes i can! its gorilla!!!"
child 1: "noooooo! its valilla!" va- lill-a!" *looks at me and smiles* "i say it so good dont I?"

:) another time...well a child had trouble falling asleep.. i jokingly said "well why dont you count to a hundred in english and french?" ... he says: "oh well..i dont know french that well.." and walks back to his room.
few minutes later he walks in and says: "OK, i counted to 100 in english and in hebrew... but i still cant fall asleep" *frowns*

.... :)

Took my 5.5 yr old to see the circus Monti in Windisch a few months ago.

Kid-Wow Mommy, this looks like a really old town, doesn't it?
Me- Yes, it does look kinda old.
Kid-Even the kindergarten looks old,(We walked by what looked like a daycare, kids outside playing) all the buildings look old.
Kid again-I wouldn't be surprised if someone came out and took our photo, and it was all in black and white.
Me-(Nearly died laughing).

I love that!

My nephew, four years old, was obsessed with recognising car makes by the badge. Driving along one day in the car with him and his parents:

Me: What's that one Sammy?
Sam: BMW!
Me: Look at those circles, what's that?
Sam: Audi!
Me: (as we pulled up behind a Fiat Uno) And the one in front?
Sam: Fiat!
Me: What kind of Fiat? (It's only three letters, it's good reading practice)
Sam: I don't know. What kind of Fiat is it, Dad?
Dad: Uno.
Sam: No, I don't.

Cause and effect -- a 3.5-year-old's perspective:

While on holidays this week, my son spotted an ice cream stand. "Daddy, I like ice cream because I love you."

It worked.

Aw...

I got a dry big weed of some sorts, my little picked up somewhere for me, and which, under any condition, cannot be pitched.

Today, we looked at the sad, dry plant, and I heard a little voice saying "mami, can we make spice out if it?"

This is weird, not cute. I have a little boy at school, about 6 years old.

BOY - are we going to the park today?
Me - No
Boy - Yeeeeeeeeeeeey!
Me - Why are you happy about that?
Boy - Because I don't like the park. It's....it's....too beautiful.

A little boy I take care of on Friday.

While he's walking on the street, he looks up at me and says:

Boy: I am so happy today.
Me: and why is that?
Boy: because I love you

Well sometimes is not what they say but also what they do. I started singing a song yesterday and this was the reaction I got. :o

My almost 3 years old daughter is very very bossy.

She is now enjoying to put her dad in Time Out for what ever the reason, few times per day. Lucky me, I am immune against Time Out for an unknown reason.

I do like this new hobby of her because it makes me take revenge on my husband when he is annoying:

Me- Naughty Baba!
My Daughter- Time Out Baba, come here, in the corner! You stay there for 2 minutes!

And she comes to me and pretend to have a conversation with me while ignoring him...

:D

Re: Cute things kids say
 
My daughter who own a small collection of dolls from all over the world (Indian doll, white doll, black doll, etc) came up with something I found very cute last night.

She had her black baby doll in her arm, changing the diaper and feeding the baby when she looked at me and said:

- Mama, baby cho-co-lat. Mini-Nil, cho-co-lat!

I laughed and told her that she was actually ca-ra-mel (She is not white).

So she tried to repeat it and I was wondering where did she find that.. These days, everything brown and alike is called cho-co-lat by her.

Anyway, I had to take a few bites of her to make sure she is trully ca-ra-mel and yes, I confirm, she tasted yummy!

:D

When my son was less than a year old, he was nursing and using baby sign language. One day, we were out and about when a VERY large chested mom with a low cut shirt walked by, My little guy's eyes got huge, and he looked at me and did the milk sign (http://www.babies-and-sign-language.com/sign-milk.html). Cracked me up!

Re: Cute things kids say
 
Gotta love 3-year-olds ... my little man has recently met a new friend who's 5, and she's been over to play a few times. He's pretty pushy, and has on occasion hit her or dragged her around when she wasn't where he wanted her to be. We've been working on that issue, so today he tried again:

"Come and build Lego with me - I won't hit you!"
