Re: Cute things kids say

In the car, listening to an ad about the Swan's Lake ballet being given in Geneva.

Son: Mom! There's a circus with tamed swans! Can we go?

I was trying to ask E, almost 2, not to do something earlier today... her response? She put her tiny finger up to her mouth and said "shhhh" as she snuck off to do what she wanted! lol
Same as my little guy... 2.5 years old and has said for a long time "bye bye, tschüss" and pushes you away when you say no or he wants to do something naughty LOL

Re: Cute things kids say

Our oldest (7) has good a very good grasp of maths, and recently got two test results of 72/73... ETH, here we come.

His sister (6) on the other hand is probably destined for the humanities...

Her: "Ask me some maths!"
Me: "Ok, what's 2+2?"
Her: "4!"
Me: "what's 4+4?"
Her: "8!"
Me: "very good. What about 4+5?"
Her... pause...:"10?"
Me: "no, try again..."
Her: "is it less than 10?"

Re: Cute things kids say

Looking at the sky.
M, there are white bits and blue bits.
Me, the white is the cloud, isn't it?
M, there is a hole, I think the sun or the moon will be there. The sun has stringy bits that come off.
Me, rays? yes the sun has rays that come out of it. And the moon changes shape doesn't it? Sometimes it's a circle, sometimes it looks like a C.
M, Yes, the flying people, the astonauts (sic), go there and take some off, and then they go and put them back again.
Me, did someone tell you that?
M, no, I worked it out myself.

Think my 4 year old daughter is the same with Maths. Sometimes she accepts 30 comes after 29 and continues to count.. other times, she stops, gets annoyed, and defiantly cries out..

"Noooo! It's twentyten, not 30.. where's 10 gone?!"

Terribly annoyed that numbers don't go the way she wants them to.

Earlier, I asked her whether she would like to do a letter writing worksheet or her sound sheet.

Her reply:

"I dont like that question. Can you ask me another one?"

Re: Cute things kids say

Not mine, a friend, but it made me LOL.
We have the BEST breakfast conversations...
mini: Miss Bainbridge's dad died on Friday
Me: Oh I'm so sorry to hear that, how sad
mini: "I'm going to sing him a song"
Me: "what, even though he's dead?"
mini: "yes (starts singing unintelligibly)
Me: "oh right ok a song for a dead person is called a requiem"
mini: "yes, I'm singing him a requiem..... Except it's in cat!"

Re: Cute things kids say

Mini-me was on Skype with her daddy and his girlfriend who we will call EW. I was trying to convince her that Mummies and Daddies have eyes on the back of their heads (which we know to be true). EW gets upset about being left out.:-

EW - All women have eyes on the back of their heads, when you grow up and are a woman you will have them too.
Mini-me - I don't want to grow up and get old like you, I want to stay young like my mummy.


We are the same age by the way.
