What's the funniest thing your child has said lately? - Page 3

post #41 of 191
My DD just turned 3.
Last week she had a cold.
At bedtime she was fine. By morning, she had a full blown cold.
My neighbor was over that morning and asked DD where she got her cold?
DD said--From my bed! (and gave her an exasperated look, which was priceless!)

"There's something else in there!" she said.
"Yes there is, that's pumpkin."
DD got the most horrified look on her face and said, "That's PUMPKIN!?"
DH said, "Yes it is" and then quickly realized that DD was talking about OUR CAT NAMED PUMPKIN!!! He immediately started going, "No! No! Not pumpkin! PUMPKIN! The other pumpkin!" Forgetting that DD has actually never eaten pumpkin before.

Of course by this time I could not stop laughing and was no help at all to bail poor DH out of it while DD looked at the filling in her bowl with absolute horror.

Oh sweet mercy. This is one of those things that dh and I have a running dialouge about. 30 years from now, ds sitting on his therapist's couch, "And then when I was 3, I thought they cooked my cat, but instead of explaining it to me they sat there and laughed. Laughed, Dr. Smith, can you believe that?? They were horrible people."

My friend's little boy spent some time at our house a while back; he's eight months younger than my six-year-old daughter. At first they played happily, then she wanted some alone-time in her personal section of the yard outdoors, and he kept driving her crazy by calling out, "I'm wooking at you ... I'm wooking at you." After he left my daughter said, "I used to think (insert name) was just a dumb boy ... now I know he's really a MEAN dumb boy."

Talk about being in touch with your feelings. Wow!

Last month I was having horrible cramps from AF. My 11yo DS was sitting at the kitchen table and I was sitting down trying to work up the energy and effort to walk the boys to school. I happen to mention how sore and achy I was and DS asks why and I said not to worry about it. He goes OH! You got a period don't you?! I said yes I have my period. He's like do you need a doctor mom? Are you ok? I think he didn't realise that for me to feel that way is totally normal. It was nice to know he was so concerned about me. :

Hey, I just realized everyone else seems to be focusing on cute sweet things (or at least not MEAN things) their kids said ... I need to examine why I think it's so cute for mine to put someone down. Boy I'm sure learning from this discussion board.

My youngest also just turned three-and her awareness of her older self is so sweet to watch. When she started preschool at 2.5 (for two hours a week) I would carry her in because she wanted to be close before I left her. At 2.75 she started going for four hours a week, which meant she then needed a backpack with a snack and drink, that she put in her very own CUBBY. Is she ever into that! Anyway, now that she's three, she wants to walk by herself into school, tugging her bag behind her, and this morning she looked up at me as she lugged her little bag up the stairs and said "mom, I'm being bigger!!!!"

Alright, I've got two!

When DD1 was about 3 1/2, she was in the car with DH, and was talking on her "cell phone".

V: Hello? Oh hi Brian. Listen, Brian, I'm not going to be kissing you at school anymore. I'm going to be kissing Jonathan now. Okay? Okay, I have to go now.
V: Hi Jonathan...I just told Brian that I would be kissing you and not him at school. See you tomorrow!
V: "ring ring" Hello? Oh HI Kevin!! (in a sugary sweet flirty voice)

Poor DH almost drove off the road.

DD2, now 4 (and almost a half, thankyouverymuch!) and I were talking about the fact that I just started back to school online so that I can finish my degree. She got a very serious look on her face, put her little arms around my neck, and said, "mama, I am SO.TOTALLY.PROUDOFYOU!!" I just about melted in to a big gooey pile right there!

My husband, son and myself were at a restraunt. We were ordering our beverages and the waiter asked my son (he was almost 3 at the time, he's 3 now) if he wanted some apple juice. He said yes. I know that my son does not like apple juice but I let him get it anyways, you never know. Our drinks are brought to us and my son took a sip , stood up in the booth and said loudly " This apple juice is NOT for babies "

Everyone laughed. It was cute .

This is the setting:
Dh, DD (8yrs) and I (with the babe on my back ) were walking to go to the camp cafeteria this summer (we were on a community camping vacation).

DD-"So and So said that humans are animals"
me-" yes we are. We are a mammal." I continue talking about what a mammal is ect.
DD- "So and So also said that we came from monkeys"
Dh- "Some people think that we come from monkeys" Dh goes into the different theories.
DD- "So thats why they make monkey bars"

Just remembered another one!

When DS was about 2 1/2, I decided I was going to give him a new "big word" each day, explain to him what it meant, and ask him to try to use the word in sentences throughout the day. The first word I gave him was "suggestion." After a few days of doing this and him not using the words in sentences, I had given up. A few days later (about two weeks from the beginning of this idea), I was trying to wash behind his ears in the tub, and he busts out with, "I have a SUGGESTION (said very loudly). Don't do that anymore."

Another one I might have already shared: My daughter's father cheated on me when I was seven months pregnant with her, so I broke up with him. I was really upset about it for a few days and pretty much laid around the house moping. One evening I was crying (I thought discretely) in bed, and my DS came and got in bed with me and put his arms around my neck. Here is the conversation that took place:

Chase (not quite 4 at the time): Don't cry, Mama. I'm here with you.
Me: Aw, thank you baby, that's very sweet. (crying harder as I hug him tight)
Chase (after two or three minutes of this): Mama?
Me: What, baby?
Chase: Could you stop crying now? I'm tired of hearing that.

Then I told this story to my mom the next day, and he goes: "I was tired of hearing it."

I sprayed the laptop screen with coffee when I read this! (THANK GOODNESS DH wasn't home to see that! WHEW!)

A friend of my mom's recently gave her two bamboo stalks, one of which was meant for me. So we were over at her house and she said I should take mine home and asked, "Which one do you want?" I was about to reply when M (7) pipes up from across the room: "Does it matter? She's going to kill either one." I don't exactly have a green thumb, and apparently EVERYONE knows it!

And yesterday, S, dh, and I were just snuggling in the bed, and she's at the tail end of a cold so she's got a gravelly voice. Alex jokingly said, "S, have you been smoking?" She looked straight at him and lets out this gravelly, "YES." We were cracking up. (BTW, we don't smoke nor do we know anyone that smokes, so it was purely coincidental, but very funny.)

i like this thread...

i was sitting around with dd the other day and i was feeling really sick, so i said "owww, my stomach hurts" and she looked at me all worried and said "oh no, that means i need a new mommy" like i was defective and needed to be replaced immediately.

it was funny at the time.

My daughter, almost 4 and a half, argues constantly with just about everything we say. At breakfast yesterday, dh says, "G, are you always right about everything?"

dd:"no, sometimes I'm wrong."

big pause while dh and I's jaws drop at this admission.

dd: "But I AM the greatest in the world!"
