Awkward things your kids say to others - Page 2

post #21 of 77
These are great!! One from my DD: we were waiting in line at the bank, and DD suddenly turned to the lady standing behind us and said to her, loudly, “You look just like the mean lady in 101 Dalmations!” OMG. I wanted to sink into the floor. The woman turned to me and said “Well, obviously I need a spa day!” I kind of mumbled “I don’t really see the resemblance,” and I was very glad when we were done banking!

Dd1 regularly yells out Santa Claus whenever she sees a man with a long white beard. Which oddly enough, happeds more frequently than one would think. She also enjoys talking about gentials in the locker room at the pool.

While DS was PLing, we were in line at the bank behind an apparently grumpy man. DS walked right up behind him and pointed at his shorts and said, "He wearing big boy underwear!" Not that he could see them, but he was assuming....

This week were in line at Target, and he looked at the lady behind us and said, "She have no hair!" I turned around and the lady had a full head of hair, so I told him, "Of course she does!" and then I realized that it was too perfect and was likely a wig.... How did he know that??

My DS hasn't really said anything awkward to anyone, but he (loudly) asks me questions about people sometimes. He once pointed at a bald man and asked why he didn't have any hair, and he asked why our carpet installer had such dark skin.

Ha, for some reason the way this is phrased I'm picturing a little kid going up to someone all seriously and saying, "Hmm, have you had that checked out? The borders are asymmetrical -- you might want to get it looked at."

At our barn, during a show, in the office(like a common area) were about 15 people, my trainer included. I'm in the bathroom peeing w/ DS - which has very thin walls. He suddenly focuses on me as I'm wiping and he says "Wow Mommy your butt is hairy! You need to shave your butt!!" Obviously referring to the bikini area -but I heard the whole room outside go silent followed by laughter from a clique of teenage girls. Mortified.

OMG. I had one of these another day. DD is 4 and her best friend's family speaks another language, also very heavy accented English. I prefer to email or text the mom because I can NEVER understand her and have to ask her to repeat things numerous times.

Yesterday, DD says to friend's mom, "My mom can't understand anything you're saying when you speak."

DD's another one who calls all small children, including ones several years older than her, 'babies.' "Look at that cute baby," she'll say to me, and the four year old she's pointing at will look at us with horror. Usually it's the mothers who seem sort of offended, though. There have been several cases where the other mother will stress that DD is the baby, comparatively, I guess, or will tell DD that she's wrong.

Earlier this week, DD and I were walking down the sidewalk near our house when a neighbor (a few houses down) drove up the street in his older car, which was quite noisy/rattling as he parked it just ahead of us. DD pointed at the car and screamed, "Noisy car, messy car, ew!" and the guy heard her. Luckily he was friendly/amused about it and said he hadn't been scolded so thoroughly since his own daughter was small...but still. I sort of hurried us down to the end of the street.

Ds once asked our waiter if he had a penis.

Today, I had to buy a bra. With both kids. In a store that only had curtains at the front of the changing stall. Besides both of them continually opening the curtain and nearly causing me to flash the clerk, my son was just full of innaproriate comments.

"Are those your boobies, Mama?"
"You have nice, big boobies. They're perfect."
"Is that your bra now? It's perfect."
"Boobies are nice and warm."
"Your other bra is old and icky."

Every time they hear a baby cry in public, my dds say 'that baby needs to nurse'. I love it! It makes folks nervous but you know what. . . . that baby needs to nurse. Sometimes they will say 'my mom has extra nurse milk if you need some' and other helpful such. They make other awkward comments, but I try to stay and blush and tell the truth. Yes he has a penis- half the world has a penis. 3 billion penises in the world- that one's not a big deal!

Blushing for you! I can totally picture DD1 doing this to me.

Your DS' comments sound like what I imagine the Bizarro-world Family Circus kids might say to their mom! Could you imagine that in the Sunday funnies?

Luckily this one hasn't happened in public yet but it's only a matter of time.

DD (2.5 years): I have a vagina.

Me: Yes, you do.

DD: Judah (a 2.5 year old friend) has a penis!

Me: Yes, he does.

DD: Daddy has a penis, too.

Me: You're right.

DD: Judah has a little penis. Daddy has a BIIIIIIIIG penis!

This is where my husband and I try very, very hard not to laugh so she won't be encouraged to repeat this constantly outside the house.

These stories are so cute and funny.

''That man looks like he is pregnant is his bum!'' Is what I overheard a preschooler say not too long ago. Not my kid, thankfully! Not sure what I would have told her! She was pretty young, probably a bit young to know she was being rude...the man did have an exceptionally large behind.

our DD1 started telling select people that there is a baby in mommy's belly before my period was even late!

Wow! It sounds like she has a gift.

When DS was three/four this happened at the dentist:

Dentist (taking off the full-length bib and helping DS out of the chair): Well, you did such a great job of letting me look at your teeth.

Hygenist: Yes, he sat so nicely for me too and opened so wide. I wish all kids were as good at this as you are.

DS: Oh, well, knowing that I had to sit still I was just playing with my penis the whole time.

I just choked on my coffee and spilled it on my shirt! Did everyone just burst out laughing?

Apronsand Acorns- what a little gem you have there! sooo funny!


I remembered another one.

Grocery shopping one day when dd was younger(somewhere between 5 and 7yrs old). She said 'A lotta fachina' in a quiet voice and giggled, I leaned and said 'wha?'
In a louder voice "A LOTTA FA-china!' torn between laughing my head off and being horrified I first tried to be nonchelant. but she kept on repeating a lotta fachina.
so then I ignored her.
then I tried to shush her.
Then I gave in to the laughter. Though I still tried to shush her.
Eventually she was laughing so hard no one around us could understand what she was saying over and over and over
It was soo embarassing and funny.
