So this happened last night, and I'm still cackling about it today.

I was sitting out on our back deck, and I had a glass of pineapple fizzy drink.  Isobel (4 in April) comes out and asks for a sip and "mmmmmm.  Tastes beautiful.  Like magical Asians"

What's yours come up with lately?

I picked my DS (4) up from school today, amd when I asked him how his day was, he said 'it's a jungle out there', totally straight-faced.

ROFL, he must have been listening to his father's dodgy late 80's music again.

What do you think she was trying to say?

DS was jiggling around too much at dinner the other day and had a chip go the wrong way. After much coughing and spluttering he looked at me and said "Mumma I think that chip went right up into my BWAIN"
He has a thing about his brain though, the other day he wanted a biscuit, I said no because he needed room for dinner and he said "No, dat's OK mumma, the honey biscuits go down and fill up my feet, and dinner goes up into my BWAIN " (emphasis his)
I could only commend him on his knowledge of anatomy.

DD (3 on Saturday) said to me yesterday:
"No need to cuddle me all day Mummy, I has to eat my yoghurt otherwise it will die."

That's the thing! I asked her... I thought she can't POSSIBLY mean magical asians! Where would that COME from? So I asked her and yep... Magical Asians.  

Do you know what Asian means?

Yep... its magical.

When DS1 was learning to read (he was an early reader) he was very taken with "Ex-Jamaican" marks and would say "Mummy, I'm hungry with an ex-Jamaican mark". laughing2.gif

And yesterday DS2 told me that his "saliba" in his mouth was water and if he ran out he'd die. But its ok because he makes it in his body.

One of my 5yro twin boys went up to DH who needed a shave.  He put his little hands on Dh's cheeks & said, "Dad, your face has gone all crazy".  DH loved that comment!  original.gif

DD starts crying in the back of the car
Me: What's up?
DD: I poked myself in the eye! (I start cracking up - she's four - how do you poke yourself in the eye???)
DH: How did you do that?
DD: I was trying to poke the window (I start gasping for air and am unable to respond)
DH: Was your eye close to the window? (it wasn't - when buckled into her seat it's quite impossible for it to be anywhere near the window)
DD: Yes and I was trying to poke the window to see how much I weighed and I poked my eye! It really hurts!!!

WTF?  huh.gif
Anyway by this time DH has started cracking up and we are unable to enquire further. Poor DD and her incredibly unsympathetic parents...

My 3 year old walked into my mum's last week and exclaimed "Look how big you are getting Nana!"

He sees it as a compliment (ie big and strong) but its a bit of a sensitive subject with Nana, although she did laugh.

Not nearly as cute, because she's still little, but I was suggesting I make pizza for dinner. Her normal response to such things is "Yay!!" or "Dun liiiiike it."

Tonight, she shook her head most resolutely and said, quite clearly, "No, I do not want to have pizza for dinner." I then asked what she WOULD like. She tapped her finger to her chin, "Hmm. Uhmm... Uhmmm. OH! I know!" finger thrust into the air in a true eureka moment, "Chocolate cake!"

Oh I have another one.  DS was in the pool with DH....

DS:   Dad, I'm little & skinny
DH:  Yes you are
DS:  And you're big & fat!

Doesn't quite fit the thread but thought I'd share anyway. DS has started occasionally making two vocal sounds (yay, about time!) Mah and Bo. So it sounds like, mahmah, Bo-Bo... Or sometimes, Mabo. Being fans of "the Castle" we respond with "it's the vibe!"

Ds is a bit older (7) but the other day he was asking me about the Federal Election and who has to vote. I told him that all the adults have to vote, and he replied totally straight faced, "Even the poor peasants??" - cracks me up whenever I think of it.

My DD, who is not quite two and a half had the following conversation with her father a couple of months ago.......
As she was walking to an atm, her dad asked where she was going.  Her response
"For money"
"And what do you want the money for?"
"Chocolate"
I don't know where she gets it......

Love these threads!

Mine is a bit of a 'ground swallow me up moment'.  Took DD to the doctors the other day and had to wait awhile.  Imagine a waiting room full of people and she comes out with "holy f*ckamoly, when's our turn!".

Mortified!

DS almost 3 gets out of the bath and says 'look mummy my hands are all sprinkled!!' I think he means wrinkled!!

And he likes to make an echo if we are in a tunnel or a small space 'mummy listen to my gecko!!!'

LOVE this age!!! He has just started having two way conversations with his toys too which is hilarious!!

OMG I have tears! That is gold.

When I was little my dad went into the bank. I asked mum what he was doing and she said he was drawing some money. When he came out I looked at the money and said "Gosh Daddy you draw so well!".

One day we were in the car and I could hear DD in the back going "No, stop it. Don't touch that"
I turned around to ask who she was talking to and witnessed her smacking herself on her hand. I asked her why she did that and she said "Because it tried to touch my drink bottle"  huh.gif
Don't think I've ever laughed so hard.

DD told her 2 year old daughter that she would not be buying her any 'treats' whilst out shopping and she shrugged her shoulders and said "It's OK nanny has the cash" unsure.gif

Today was my first day at home with just my 3 year old (his sister has just started big school).

I started reciting a nursery rhyme that I wasn't sure if he knew:

One, Two buckle my ...[he says]  SHOE!

[I think to myself, Oh, he must have done this at daycare]

Three, four knock at the ... DOOR! [He looks proud, this is fun]

Five, six pick up THE TOYS!  [Oh dear, am I that much of a slavedriver?]

Seven, eight don't be NAUGHTY! [I guess I am, LOL]

Me: Oh DS isn't it beautiful?
DS: Yes Mummy, beautiful like a woman!
