"I wish I could build a time machine, then I can become a baby again."

"No, it doesn't work like that. A time machine just takes you back in time and you get to see yourself as a baby, but you don't become the baby. Right, mama?"

Re: Cute things kids say

We asked my 4 year old niece what she wanted to be when she grew up in front everyone in the family during Christmas......

She answered, loud and clear and proud, 'I'm going to be a VEGENARIAN' :-))))

She meant.... VETERINARIAN !!!!

Re: Cute things kids say

My recent kids fun..
Mummy was away for a ladies holiday last week.. I asked the kids (3 and 6), shall we get a replacement mummy for a week**? Hmm they thought about it for a while and decided that a suitable replacement would be a pink plastic cup .. As long as we drew mummy on the cup, it would do nicely. The cup could sit on the table for dinner etc.

So we drew the eyes, nose, mouth and the 3 year old exclaimed, boobies too!! As I drew the boobies, they both said "...longer boobies daddy..."


** Yeah I was hoping for a 19 yr old au pair.

Something funny,kids & culture

My daughter who had reached the grand old age of 11 said something funny this morning that I wanted to share.

Half listening to a conversation with her mom/brother when I caught her saying, no mummy idiot doesn't begin with in "e", every knows that.... she assured her younger brother... no she says confidently it begins with a silent "h"... daft...

It so funny that way it came out, but I thought it started with an "i" says her brother, who of course spells things in French, even if he native language is English.

Idiot does been with an "i" I said, see he says to sister. Idiot begins with an "e"...

Re: Cute things kids say

Kids want a pet very badly. We can't quite fulfil this wish at the moment, so they invented a game (it's been a week so far) where one is the pet (a husky) and the other the owner. The "owner" is so patient and gentle, and the "dog" very friendly and compliant.

Sweet. Time for a reality check. Send them both out in the rain, and while they are out, hide all their Lego and cut one limb off every Barbie. Chances are the pet will morph into a cat, or a goldfish.

Lots of lego play, but no Barbies. I mean we have them, but they've been sitting neglected in a drawer since times immemorial. Occasionally they'll be taken out, and I hope that the kids will play with them, but then they'll be stuffed right back in the drawer.

For the next storm, which seemed imminent this morning (but now I'm not so sure), the plan is to go outside and get soaking wet.

I was asked by a little person a couple of weeks ago:

"What does God do with all the dead people?"

How do you answer that?

Re: Cute things kids say

Well, there is always the different point of view. When I saw snowflakes falling from the sky may this year, I said.
Oh no, it´s snowing. My daughter 2,5 years old said.
It`s snowing! Yippe, we can make a snow man :-)

Re: Cute things kids say

Speaking of Santa...

I parked on a street with the name Hofacherstr. and started laughing and cracking jokes with OH, because just a few days earlier I found an apt for sale on a street with the same name, and thought how terrible a name if an English-speaking person were to hear it, and didn't (for some reason) expect it to be a common street name.

But then I had to explain to my kids what the joking was about...so I tried to avoid the explanation just by saying something like there are two bad words in that street name and it's just over the top.

Now my kids are no saints and are exposed to a tiny bit of (mild?) swearing, but the older one asked confused what two words, because they only recognized just one bad word. Then I said that "ho" is the other bad word, and even more confused came back the question: "Then why does Santa say: HO! HO! HO!"?

Re: Cute things kids say

One of mine last week in the U.K. at the beach.

"Daddy, guess what I just saw in the water?"

"No idea, a fish perhaps?"

"No, a sea horse!"

"A sea horse...really??"

"No, I mean a sea dog!"

"A sea dog?"

"I mean a hot dog!"

"Do you think you may have seen a seal, perhaps?..."

Re: Cute things kids say

My daughter asked me yesterday if I could give her a demonstration of what I would say to her if she were to get into trouble (naughty type trouble ). When I asked her why she wanted a demonstration, she ignored my question and just repeated hers.

I then asked her what she was planning on doing which might get her into trouble with me? She thought for a moment, obviously thought better of it and said:

"Never mind!"

I have yet to find out what she had planned on doing. Or if she has done it.

Next time, say "yes darling, an you give me an idea of what I should pretend to be angry about?". She will probably use what she has done , or will soon do.

IMHO, those 20 Minuten quotes are nowhere near the standard of the EF junior community's offerings!
