Things Toddlers Say 

Happy Tuesday!! I’ve been bouncing back and forth from the mountains to furniture market, so here are the snippets of humor I caught in between!! Enjoy!


J sharing knowledge: Have you ever seen a hamomy fish? It’s the most juiciest, colorfulest, and wettest fish of all time! And it can also change it size! And make apple trees!
Me: *not sure how to respond*

J when he’s mad at me: Well, maybe I don’t even want to snuggle you.

EK to me: You’re funny sometimes. Not a lot, but sometimes.

EK, upon seeing a cement truck printed with Stars and Stripes: its American day?! I didn’t know!

EK: It’s not good if you get colonies in your teeth.
Me: I think you mean cavities.

J’s newest thing is telling stories of when he was a baby. Such as: Did you know that when I was a baby, a tiny bear and a crawled up the back of my head?!?!

Me: Did you have fun with Necie and G-Daddy while I was gone?
EK: Yeah I did, but not too much, because I missed you.
Me: *heart eyes*

EK copying words from a book: I’m practicing my writing.
Me: That’s great! I can tell. Your letters are getting more clear!
EK: Yeah, and I’m building up my stamila.
Me: Your stamina?! Who taught you that word?!
EK: My teacher. (As in “Duh.”)

J, when asked to place napkins on the table:  I do that job at school for lots of different persons!

EK: Sometimes when you wake up, do your lips feel crunchy?

Hubby: Tell mom about your field trip!
EK: So, like… (I can’t hear anything else because I’m wondering how she learned “so like”.)

Well, that’s it for this week! What sillies have you heard from your kids recently?!

Happy Tuesday! Here are the funnies for your perusal and enjoyment!

D’s new thing is holding something on his head and declaring it a hat.
D: I got a grape hat!
J: Praise the Lord! I have a hand hat!

EK: Well the dinosaurs are instinct. (Pronounced with the emphasis on “stinct” like you would when saying “extinct”.)
J: What?!
EK: Yeah, they’re dead. Which is called instinct.
Me: I think you mean EXtinct.

D, covered in noodles: I got da noodle blacelet!

J about his lunch: Not too bad, and not too good.

D was sick for a couple days last week. He also did this, and ruined this batch of muffins…

EK: It’s Friyay!
Me: Did you just say Friyay?
EK: Yeah! And when you say Friyay you gotta raise the roof!

D, holding up a few fingers: How many dis rainbow?

Nate: Have you lost any teeth?
EK: Yeah, two.
Nate: How was it?
EK: Pretty fun. (She basically said “whatever”)

When asked what he wanted to be for Halloween…
J: A pumpkin! A stack of pumpkins!

What are your kids asking to be for Halloween?

Happy Tuesday, everyone! We all need a little humor, so here it is! Enjoy!

Hubby: When is Halloween? Do you remember?
EK: No.
Me: The last day of….. October!
EK: Yeah! Foctober! (I guess the “of” ran into the October…)
Hubby and me: *awkward glance*

D, shouting at the table: Take a poop! *looks to see who heard*
Me: *pretending I didn’t hear*
D, dejectedly: Don’t say poop.

J, when I rolled the car windows down because it was 70 degrees: Stop it! You’re making me cold!

J: Did you know there was a giant in that movie I want to watch all the time?! Its legs are like big tree trunks!

Watching a Disney movie and it’s the opening shot of the shooting star over Disneyland…
EK: It’s Disney world!
J: *gasp* My favorite place to go!

EK referring to Siri: Mom, push your serious button!

J’s opening line to our dinner guest: Guess what! I woke up sweaty.

EK: The eclipse is the best part of the whole earth!
Me: You haven’t even seen the whole earth! How can you say that?
EK: Well, I’ve seen all the buildings.
Me: You haven’t seen all the buildings.
J, declaring what’s important: Some of the buildings are ice cream shops!

J after completing a puzzle on his own: Mom! Look! I have a cool and confident surprise for you!

I love it when my kiddos use big words. What are your kids saying these days? Comment and tell me a funny thing you’ve heard recently!

Hi everyone, and happy Tuesday evening! It’s been a busy day at my house and so I’m a little late posting. Hope you’ve had a great start to your week! Here are our funnies!

J, walking into the room when he’s supposed to be napping: I need to tell you something.
Me: Is it the reason you aren’t napping?
J: No, it’s something else than that. *cue lame story*

J, giving me a compliment: Hey guess what. I love you even when you’re dead. *giggle*

J shoes me a map from his bible.
Me: What’s that a map of?
J: Jesus’s world. It’s been raining there for 3 or 4 or 5 days.

EK asking for Nilla Wafers: Can I have those anilla wipers?

EK after playing with D for half an hour: he’s figuring it out! I’m starting to like babies!

D, sitting in a big boy (regular) dining room chair: Don’t fall!

D, eating my butternut squash soup: Iss dewicious!
My new favorite child.

J: Hey guess what! D thinks the floor is sand! And he even thinks that salsa is a pillow!

D, bringing me pretend cake, singing: Happy to you, iss cake!

J: Hey, let’s pretend tooting is pooping and pooping is tooting!
Me: *eyeroll*

J, rushing up to me: Mom! I have a silly emergency!

Happy Tuesday, y’all! Enjoy these little humor nuggets, and have a great rest of your week!

A story told to me by EK’s teacher…
Teacher: Can anyone tell me a good thing to do when you’re feeling sad?
EK: *raises hand excitedly*
Teacher: EK? Tell us.
EK: You go into your room, close the door, and tell Jesus about it.
Teacher: Well yes, that’s a very good thing to do!

There have been a couple of times recently where Hubby and I both managed to be in EK’s room at bedtime, just the three of us, for a song. Each time, she has said: Look! This is how we used to live! (Meaning just one kid, I suppose)

D, to the first chicken he ever saw in real life: Hey pretty!

Nana: Do you want to take another bite?
J: No thanks. No thanks for nothing.

A picture from J’s teacher… apparently it’s a caterpillar. 

My aunt and grandma stayed with us this past weekend. J came upstairs one morning to snuggle someone…
Nana: Good morning! Want to come snuggle for a few minutes?
J: Yeah (climbs up to her bed). Where’s Jan (my aunt)?
Nana: She’s in that room (points next door).
J, after a minute: Well, it’s been really nice snuggling you, but I’m gonna go see Jan.

EK, in the car with my aunt from out of town: Is that your GMC on?
Jan: My gps? Yes, it is.

EK, walking the block into school next to a bus: Mom, I saw its driver!
Me: Yes, buses usually have drivers.

There you go – what are your kids saying these days?

Happy rainy Tuesday! At least if you’re in North Carolina. I hope you’re safe and well, wherever you are, after this past few days of craziness. Here’s a little bit of humor to cheer you up!

J: Did you know when we keep scratching our booboos they hurt more?
Me: That sounds right.
J: Yeah, it’s right, ’cause EK told me.
Me: She isn’t always right.

D: I ‘uf you, Joe Joe! I ‘uf you, Joe Joe! I ‘UF YOU JOE JOE!
Me: J, do you hear him frantically telling you he loves you?
J: I love you, too, baby brother.

J, pointing at hexagonal floor tiles in a bathroom: Mom! Look at those pentagons!
Me: Those are actually hexagons, but I’m really impressed!
EK: Stop signs are red ones of those!
Me: Actually, stop signs are octagons. *cue 20 minute discussion about many-sided figures.*

D, every time we put him on the potty and he doesn’t pee: It’s broken!

EK, putting my birthday on her planner: I just upgraded ya, Mom.

D, all day: I wan’ delly jeans! (Jelly beans)

EK explaining fire, tornado and lock down drills: Well, it’s so we’re safe. Like, just so there’s a fire, or a tomato, or if bears or lions come.

EK to her cinnamon roll: I’m coming for ya, cinnamon!

J, after snuggling with Hubby: Um, I put a little too much spit on Daddy’s ear.

J, looking at Hubby’s phone: Who’s that girl-man?
Hubby: …Barry Manilow…?
Me: *dead*

Well, I hope you enjoyed the little conversations, and the series of one-liners! Have a great rest of your week!

Happy Tuesday! And for many of you, like me, I think a “Happy first day of preschool!” is in order! I hope your Labor Day was relaxing, and that this morning didn’t come too early. Here are a few goodies from the past week. Enjoy!

EK, handing me a note: In case you know, this is for you.
Me: I think you mean, “Just so you know…”

D, all day: I did it!
J, all day: Hey! Look at my butt!
Pretty similar, right?

J got stung by his first bee the other day. His response as he slowed his crying: Its because I was doing the wrong things!
After I assured him it wasn’t his fault, and said: And now my belly hurts! If everything hurts I’ll just be a… hurt man!

EK: You and Daddy are just like Cinderelly. You’ve gotta clean, cook, wash dishes, and dress people all day long!
Me: Are you saying I remind you of a princess?

A sign of too much Octonauts…
EK and J, running through the house: Emergency rescue! Emergency rescue! (Followed by every kind of fish in the sea)


Chopsticks lessons.

EK to J: We’re the weirdest team I’ve ever seen.

EK, pondering nature: Why are ants so FAST?!

D’s two favorite foods: Zucchini (actual zucchini and sometimes mushrooms that are cooked a certain way) and tofu (typically in either curry sauce or in a noodle dish). He calls them “chini” and “toes-fu”. Naturally, yesterday he saw a pan of roasted Brussels sprouts, and said, “Fus-chini! Fus-chini!”

On Labor Day…
EK: Tomorrow, I’m going to my second grade of kindergarten.
Hubby: Second week, babe.
Again this morning…
EK: Am I in second grade now?
Me: No, kindergarten lasts all year.

EK, eating Chickin Minis from Chick-fil-A: Mmm… they have the best food ever.
Me: *silently agreeing*

Well, there you have it! What funny things are your kids saying these days?
