Re: Cute things kids say

Mini-mimi: "mummy, I know what I want for Christmas"
Me: "Oh right, what's that then?"
Mini-mimi: "a hammer"
Me: "I know sweetheart, you've told me that already"
Mini-mimi: "do you know why?"
Me: "um, not really darling"
Mini-mimi: "to hit people on the neck or wherever blood is!" *grinning at me like a psychopath*
Me: *speechless*

Re: Cute things kids say

My son made me smile yesterday. I had my hair tied in a poney-tail, and some red lipstick, a color I haven't used for ages, only when I was working. At the table he told me "mum, why have you got blood on your lips?" So cute! I told him that it was lipstick and that it was to look nice, and then he cuddled me and said that he loved it!!!!

Re: Cute things kids say

Walking home from work yesterday and my heel scraped on the ground.
Mini-mimi: "Mummy!" *said with utter disgust*
Me: "What did I do wrong?"
Mini-mimi: "You trumped!"
Me: "No I didn't, it was the heel of my shoe scraping on the ground, see?" *demonstrates*
Mini:mimi: "No it wasn't, stop kidding me and tell the truth! It was a trump from your bum bum."
Me: "Whatever."
Mini-mimi: *tuts* "You're always kidding me. you are the best kidder I have ever seen."

Re: Cute things kids say

I took my 5-year-old son skiing this week (glorious weather, just after a big dump of snow). He waited, impatient to get onto the slopes, while I queued for lift tickets. When I got back:

"My feet are dizzy from waiting so long!"

Re: Cute things kids say

After a whole year of squirrelling away spare change, my son's piggy bank was finally full.

"How much money do you think you have in there?"

"A hundred!"

"CHF 100? That's a lot of money!"

"Yes! More than the whole world! More than 29!"

Re: Cute things kids say

My daughter is at that wonderful age when a still very limited vocabulary means some pretty funny conversations.

We had a lot of fun at the Coop restaurant the other day when she loudly shouted "Daddy!!!" To every man in sight... The men's faces were quite a sight!

I remember that stage. I tried to convince her than only daddy was daddy and the rest were man. She then shouted man at a rather hefty lady. sigh.

Re: Cute things kids say

An example of when your kid uses your words against ou:
Same scenario every evening - Big boy is watching the Sandman on TV, reluctant to turn the TV off afterwards as agreed. It's usually my job to wrestle the remote ouf of his hands but yesterday hubby took over.
Following conversation:
"R., I told you to shut it off and go to bed!"
"but I don't want to!"
"I don't care, it's bed time!"
"Daddy, what don't you understand, I said no!"

I'm sure he made a mistake, meaning when you're dead.

6yo little Mudli, just visited friends who's grandmother recently passed away. Death discussion afterwards.

"Everyone dies, dad."
Yep.
"Even Babi and Deda, and Grandmama, and even you."
Yep, everyone dies someday.
"Except for ME!"

I'm quite sure kids believe that. Even if they are told otherwise. They know.

Actually, I replied to him "Even when I'm dead?", and he just stared at me in blank amazement at the concept. Even though he lovingly told me a couple of weeks ago "Daddy, you're old".

Maybe he believes neither of us wil ever die.

My son asked if we could stuff his sister in case she dies, so that we can keep her in the living room forever...

He also wants to live with me forever, even when he is an adult. Apparently his wife and kids will move in with us so that I don't feel lonely. Yepee!

My daughters dad is marrying his mistress..... Sorry I mean girlfriend, and so I explained what being married means, wanting to live together for the rest of your life etc.
She then said she wants to marry me, so at least you are in a better situation than me.
After I explained that you can't marry your mum, she changed her mind and said she would marry the boy next door, have two kids and then have 10 kids with her best friend. She isn't sure if she will marry him or not, she's worried she might not have time.

Two girls from my son's school want to marry him. So he intends to marry one, divorce after some time and marry the other, so that they are both happy. he never really wondered if he was in love with any of them, he just does as he's told!

Ours have already planned their lives around the empty field next to our house, i.e. buy the land and build houses with interconnecting corridors... Can't see the Gemeinde allowing that one...
