Things Toddlers Say

Happy Tuesday! I hope wherever you are, it’s not quite as cold as it is here… but I guess the groundhog did sentence us with six more weeks of winter, so who are we to be surprised? Here are your weekly funnies!

In the car, behind a garbage truck…
J: What’s that on the back of that truck?
Hubby: A trash compactor.
J: I wish our car had a trash compactor.

D: I wan’ bananassss!
Me: Okay. *peels banana and hands it to him*
*two minutes pass, no bites taken*
Me: *takes a bite*
D: You stealing my bananassss?!

D to my friend: Come on! Mobies and abocados!
Friend: You taking me on a date?!

J, arriving at the park as the rain starts: Uuugghhh. I told you it wasn’t a good day to go to the park.

J: I’ll just take one more bite.
Me: If you want dessert, you need to take about ten more bites.
J: How about 138?!
Me: Sounds perfect!

D’s new misnomers…
Heart=heark
Secret=seekit
Pink=pank

J, talking to a sick EK: Miss Emilie said at chapel dis morning dat God will heal the sickness away!
EK: Did you hear what he told me?!

I’m so glad it’s Tuesday! I love sharing these little quips and sillies with you. I hope you enjoy them!

J: Can I have a special drink tonight that isn’t sprite?
Hubby: What’s wrong with sprite?
J: Sprite wasn’t working for me.

J, trying to get his buddies to surprise us: Okay, on my count. One, two, threeeee!

J at an Italian restaurant: It’s nice to be in this place. Well, it’s nice to be in the whole world.

J’s new favorite word: defint-ly. (Definitely. And he definitely says it several times in one sentence.)

D, reaching his hand into my pasta: Let me share with you!

Annie (their grandma): Do you want five more M&Ms?
D: Six!
Annie: Six?!
D: Seben!

J, holding up one of his hands toward me: Every single finger on this hand has a cut. I look… damaged.
(Same convo, a little later.)
J: The most what is on me is cuts.
Ek: No, the most what is on you is hair. And pajamas. And dirt.

D, bringing EK’s mittens: I want EK’s thumbs!
Hubby finally explained to me why he might call them that… whenever we put mittens on him, we always tell him to stick out his thumbs!

Happy Tuesday! In case you’re new here, each Tuesday I compile some of the hilarious or sweet or silly things my kids have said throughout the week, and let you in on it. Enjoy!

D, trying to use a toy screwdriver: I need help!
Necie (my mom): Here… (unscrews it with her fingers)
D: Thass amaaaaaazing!

J, unprompted in a moment of quiet: I can’t believe D is in a big boy bed.
Me: You sound like his parent.

EK making big plans: …and this summer when we’re at the beach with you and G-Daddy and his boat…
Necie: But G-Daddy doesn’t have a boat.
EK: He can just order one.

J, looking at a basketball mascot: His head is… not a regular head.

J writing his name… perfectly… but backwards.

J chatting with EK: Well, this day looks really old.
EK, knowingly: Yeah.

EK telling us about school: I do burping lessons with Rosalie at lunch. She’s the boss of burping.
Me and Hubby: *laughing and cannot function*

J, handing out silverware: EK is a big year old, so she gets a big one.

Hellooooooo Tuesday! This particular Tuesday marks our first day of school since last Tuesday! Who has two thumbs and is really excited?!?! Me.

D and Hubby had been playing with some uncut lemons.
Hubby: What does a lemon smell like?
D: …
Hubby: …
D: …yellow!

Hubby and I had been explaining to J about how getting sick happens to everyone, and how running a fever is our bodies’ way of fighting off sicknesses. We finished with saying it was good that our bodies know that getting warmer often kills viruses. J responded: It’s good to get sick!

Hubby: What do you want for lunch, EK?
EK: Mexican steak!
Hubby: Well, I guess we can make that happen.
(The result is the picture up there.)

J on pancakes: Mmm… right from the fry pan!

Watching The Empire Strikes Back, first scene with the snow monster…
J and EK: *scared*
D: Puppy!!

J, in the first day of 60 degree weather: I love this day, Mom!

EK: He made your soup so fast!
J: No…
EK: Yes he did!
J: No… he made it quickly.

Me: One, two….?
D: …
Me: …
D: …
Me: Three! Four, five, six,
D, interrupting me: Seben!!!!!!!
Me: You got seven but not three?!

D, with a rolling pin inside his shirt: Mama look! I got a sword in my pocket!

Hubby: Here’s some falafel for you!
J: This isn’t waffles!

EK: And guess what?! We got lollipops! J got strawberry and I got watermelon and D got… he got green bean.
Me: I think it’s green apple…

I had asked EK to run a bath, and she came back up shouting: Mom! The light has run out of power in there!

EK referring to hand, foot, mouth: …and we all had footprints.

D about pterodactyls: I need da carrot-dactyl!

A few one-liners this week, eh? What are your kiddos saying these days? Or shall I say “saying improperly” these days?!

Happy Tuesday! If you live near me, you’re probably enjoying some beautiful weather today! I hope you’re getting your January allotment of Vitamin D! It just so happens that this is my 700th post published on my blog! That blows my mind. I can’t believe I’ve written that much, but I suppose after a few years, you just do. Anyway, here are the funnies!! Enjoy!

EK: You guys are the best family ever. Better than any family in the world!

EK to her sick dad: I know what you need! A nose rocket ship to go up there and make you unsick!
Hubby: If that was actually a thing, I’d let it in my nose.

EK, handing J a napkin: Here, use this.
J: I don’t need a napkin!
EK: What?! Look at the table!
J: *looks at drops of hot chocolate*
Ek: Yeah. You need it.

MK, our babysitter: What do you want for dinner?
D: Chocolate pizza!
MK: Well, pizza we can do.

D one morning: I want donuts! Chocolate donut! With spinkles in it. And a ‘poon.

J: *draws a spider web* Look Dad!
Hubby: You’re a good little spider.
J: I’m not a spider! My name’s Joseph and I make everything cool!

What are your kiddos saying these days?!

Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope y’all had a great Christmas, and are enjoying family, leftovers and new gifts today! Here are a few of our funnies from this past week… I tried to be phone-less pretty often, so I missed a few I’m sure. Enjoy!

EK real talk: I can’t stop drinking lemonade! Sugar is one of my favorite things in the world! But I also like the juicy part of a cucumber.

EK, trying to convince me to let her spend the night at someone’s house: But it’ll be so easier for you and Daddy to only have two kids!

J: I wanna resolution!
Hubby: What’s a resolution?
J: When you say something really funny, and then just fall down on the bed!

J: EK, I’m gonna come kiss you because I love you!
EK: *gasp* Germs!

J: You know what I want for my birthday? Something yellow, yellow, with boy colors, yellow, a yellow, a yellow…
Me: A yellow what, bud?
J: A watch! Because I don’t have one! And one time, Daddy let me wear his for a moment.

After reuniting with some friends we hadn’t seen in a while, EK: There’s too much missing going on here.

D: I want a banana!
Nana: What animal eats bananas?
D: …
Nana: Monkeys! What does a monkey say?
D: OO-AH-OO-AH-AAAAAH!!!

EK meeting new friends: They probably want to play with me because of my half braid.

Hope you and yours had a merry Christmas!!
