Re: Cute things kids say
 
I regularly hike home from my office with my little two yr old lad on my back in a carrier. It's a great walk through allotments, orchards and forest, and a good chance for me and him to bond, and for him to learn and practise new words.
We were walking along a path up a steep hill, and in front of us, a number of tiny birds were darting out of a hedge down to the ground to pick up some spilled grain, then flitting back into the hedge with a triumphant cheep.
"Look, little birds." I indicated the scene in front of us to the babba.
"Burddees!, ook, ikkle burddees!" Was his excited response.
After watching for a little while, we continued, scattering the birds. My son, however was not done, and continued to warble, "Burddees! Burddees, ook Daddy Burddees!"
"No Charles, all the birdies are gone." I replied.
He grew even more insistent, "ook Daddy, burddee, BURDDEEE!", waving a chubby fist, chubby index finger extended, into my field of vision from behind. Sure enough, glistening and proudly perched on said chubby index finger was a fair sized "burddee", or "bogey" as they are more commonly known, clearly the result of some recent excavations.

Cheers

My brothers kid was here last week, he just turned 2 years old.
It’s the time they are trying to get him on to the potty..so they bought a little book about a toddler story doing so.

It ends “ and now Caroline went on to the potty, Caroline said “ I am a big girl now “ ..

Next day they attempt again and ask him “ would you please sit on the potty for us?” and he does, yes with his diaper on but still,it’s a beginning.
When he sat down and we all applauded him for doing so, he says very proud “ I am a big girl now “:D

Seriously, I burst out laughing, brother went outside for a minute while his wife in tears of laughter went to change his nappy.

"but I'm just a kid mum"

I can remember being about 12 or so, and we’d started to do Sex education in class. For homework we had to draw and name the female reproductive system. Feeling quite grown up that I was doing homework that involved “sex education” I showed my younger sister what I was doing. She was reading all the words and wanted to know why the word “vagina” was on our corner sweet shop’s window when it was the proper name for a ladies doodad. “What do you mean?” I asked her, and she said that on the window in big letters was “Golden Vagina” ......took me a minute to realise she was referring to the “Golden Virginia” tobacco advert !! :D

No no, he's got it right, all right.

My youngest, when he was about two and on the nus regularly taking his big brother to school, used to great especially fat people on the bus with "have you got a baby in there?" or "you've got big boobies" or "there's not enough room for you and him on that seat"

At dinner tonight:

My son (3 in a few days), eating steak, sausages, potatoes and peas: "May I please have Vegemite?"
Me: "Sorry, darling, we don't have any. But thank you for saying please."
Him: "I love Vegemite."
Me: "Mmmm." (Can't stand the stuff, myself.) "Well, I love something even more than Vegemite. Can you guess what it is?"
Him: "Meeeeeee!!!"
Me: "Yes! That's right! You're my favourite son in the whole world!" Then, shamelessly seizing the opportunity, "What do you love most in the whole world?"
Him: "Milk!"

Oh.

"Daddy, your full of ideas" my daughter says says... an unexpected comment from a 4yo.

not completely in line with " what they say " but " what they do" ..

Yesterday my cousins kid came with her to visit us.
At dinner, they park the kid beside me ( 3 years old ) and for some reason,he starts to circle his finger around my nipple.. :msnsarcastic:
for reference, i was wearing a t-shirt and sweater :)


My brothers kid ( i was home 2 weeks ago) has a new thing also..he was done with his dinner, picked up his plate and started to lick it clean:D This is something none of us do,and was only done by our late grandfather who he never knew nor saw.

Still, funny as hell to see him doing it and saying " lekker " when done :)

Not so much cute but embarrassing. Firstborn aged 2 has been really shy of Swiss people since getting here. I thought she was having a breakthrough moment today on the bus when instead of crying as per usual when an elderly Swiss lady tried to talk to her-she reached for the ladies hand. I realised only a second too late that she was passing the lady the contents of her nose which she had just been picking.

Another blow struck for Anglo-Swiss relations

Re: Cute things kids say
 
Does anyone else teach their children to say stupid things?
We have coached our two year old to say:
"turned out nice again" (when she leaves the house) and,
"it's neither fish, nor fowl nor good red meat" (when she is confused about something) and
"mammy's been at the sauce again" (taught by my husband with the express hope that's she'll say it infront of the local vicar or the inlaws).

Endless fun

Little sod. I never forgave him. :msnshock:

More cutting than cute

I was in the bathroom removing unwanted facial hairs (one of the joys of having polycystic ovaries and getting older) when darling daughter (who was five at the time) comes in...

DD: What you doing?
Me: Pulling out hairs from my chin.
DD: Why?
Me: Because I don't like them.
DD: Why?
Me: Because they remind me that I'm getting old and I don't want to be old.
DD: Oh mum, you're born, you get old, you die. Get over it!
