It's Poussin Piou here. Does it exist in English? The original is in Italian.

I wish I hadn't just googled that. As 17,346,787 other people probably also do, too. (It's in French, by the way. Sort of. And please, let it never exist in any other language.)

Re: Cute things kids say

We've been here over a year and not skied yet
I have asked one of my students, who is also a ski instructor, if we can ski with her.
I then asked mini if she wanted too ski and she said.
'I know how to ski, I saw someone with poles in their hands and things on their feet so I know how to do it.'
Looking forward to our lessons.

I don't want to look up and hear Poussin Piou, but I am really afraid it's the French version of "pulcino pio" (for you masochists: )

It is.

I provide my research selflessly as a service to EF so none of you have to join the 50,893,860 people who have viewed that version to date!

Re: Cute things kids say

This thread has gone so well without youtube links of random cute kids, and I think it has to continue this way...but I found in youtube suggestions this video of a kid with an early taste in music ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQ18JEPLhkg), and I immediately remembered this thread!

Re: Cute things kids say

Somebody is responsible for teaching my daughter cheesy 80's music and it ain't me

Walking past the chemist on the way home mini-mimi pipes up:

Mini-mimi: "look mummy! S-Express!"
Me: "what are you on about?"
Mini-mimi: "there! There! Look!" *pointing at the green cross*
Me: "Okaaaay....why S-Express?"
Mini-mimi: "because it's my favourite ever!" *starts singing S-express and pulling some nifty dance moves*
Me: "just wait 'til your Daddy gets home"

Re: Cute things kids say

Inspired by the snow outside, I guess, my little 3YO comes sliding in to me on 2 appropriately sized strips of toilet paper.

"Go Schiiii fahre!!!"

(I'm going skiing!)

Who knows where this stuff comes from

Happy Winter everyone!

Re: Cute things kids say

My little one loves a cartoon called "Tree Fu Tom". In it he has to do spells to avert disaster anyway, thanks to this we have developed an afternoon ritual whilst waiting for the bus:

Mini-mimi: "come on mummy! We need to do our magic spell to make the bus come.
Me: "ok darling" *starts going through the dramatics of wiggling fingers, warming up our arms and "feeling" the magic energy* (all done to prolong the magic moment until I see the bus about to come around the corner.)
Me: * spots bus* "ok, now!"
Together: "super, super magic, bring our bus back" *lots of hand movements*
Mini-mimi: "oh mummy! It was already coming!"
Me: *rumbled*
Mini-mimi: " you really must try harder next time mummy! I'm exhausted from trying and you ruined it"

I'm glad I'm not the only one that does Tree-Fu. Mind you Minimoo has recently discovered Lazytown... I'm exhausted.

Re: Cute things kids say

What, exactly, goes on in the head of a 5-year-old?

We're on a sking holiday. My son executes a perfect stop next to me, looks up, and says, "Germs don't ski in clouds".

Sllghtly confused, I ask why not.

"Because you have to ski downhill".

I understood all the words. It was just the sequence that had me perplexed.

Re: Cute things kids say

My little daughter was shouting repeatedely "Ana! Ana!" yesterday. As we know no Ana, I was quite puzzled by this.

fortunately my son had a ready explanation: "It's probably the name she chose for our next baby."

Which next baby???
