Re: Cute things kids say

... Which reminds me: we were approaching a Kiosk and my four-year-old son asked if he could have an ice cream. I said yes, so he chose one (fortunately he usually goes for the CHF 1.- Rakete). We took it up to the attendant and then I asked him, "How are you going to pay for this? Do you have money?"

"No," he replied, then with total confidence: "But you do!"

Only 14 years of this to go ...

I've started giving my (nearly) 4 year old pocket money (CHF2 or Ł1 depending where she is). On Tuesday we went out unexpectedly so I went to the kiosk to by a childrens mag with free toy to keep her occupied. She wanted two. I said I could only afford one and she said she would buy it with her pocket money. Hmmm, she had already spent CHF1 on bubbles and didn't have it with her. Guess how many she got.

"So, how was your camp? Do you want to go next summer, too?"

"Yeah, I liked it so much!"

"What did you like the most?"

"Coming home.."

They are so honest. Even being split about something is so normal. Bless.

Re: Cute things kids say

She went to bed at 21:00 (finally) which is quite late for her as she has to go to Krippe next morning. I laid next to her to tell her the goodnight story..

Then we hear some people laughing and chatting outside pretty loud. Seems like they are having fun..

My 5 yr old said:
- Aha, super! People are partying outside, and look at me. I have to lay here and sleep!

We turned on the Olympics today and the newscaster was interviewing a British Dressage rider. 5 year old says "Why is she wearing that hat? Is she going to do a magic trick?"

Re: Cute things kids say

Olympics are on!

Women's Beach Volleyball.
Mrs OM changes the TV channel
I object:
"Hey, don't do that, it's my favourite Olympic Sport!"

9-year old is on the ball:
"I know why you like it. Because you like their clothes!"

He's right.

Water Polo comes on.
6-year old:
"Oh look, it's rugby with swimming!"


And on that note, this is my last ever post on EF.

We're leaving CH to start a new life in the Middle East - and it's nice to end by writing something on my favourite EF thread.

Thanks for the "thanks" and all the best to the good people here who have helped, advised and made us laugh over the years.

Over and out.
