For a total fluff thread, I thought we could share things our children have said recently, and the age and context if they will add to the merriment.

 

My starting comment, "I had a Sharpie. I was bored" was uttered by my DD when she saw the look on my face when I saw the extensive art work she had created on her LEG. Sadly, she's 13.

My kids (teenagers included) draw on themselves with sharpies all the time, I have never cared about that. My only rule was not to do it if they were going to spend the night with someone.

 

When my youngest was about 2 or 3, she came up to me with a blue mouth and announced, "I didn't lick the marker!" When she had just turned 1 and was learning not to touch the Christmas tree, she'd grab onto a branch and lean over to look at me and grin and say, "Hey! Hey! hey!" Also during her toddler years, when she'd do something she shouldn't, she'd say, "Why I do dat, mama?" Sometimes I'd have to go and figure out just what it was she did...She was a very interesting toddler!


drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.

Around the fire at my parents cabin, DS was throwing sticks in & tripping over people's feet, so naturally I was telling him to be careful, stay back, etc. He threw his hands up in frustration and said "Ugh! I feel like I'm being supervised!" I failed at the not laughing thing.

Funny you should post this.  My dd is enamored of henna art, and loves to draw designs on herself with INDELIBLE marker.

About a week or so ago, my five yo DD came to me to show me her "baby" (a stuffed animal, I think it was a rabbit that day). She said she had to go give her baby a bottle of formula because baby was hungry. Since I have exclusively breastfed both of her younger brothers, I was a little surprised by this and asked her why she didn't give her baby num-nums (breastmilk). She looked at me like I was an idiot and said "Because I'm too little to make mommy milk!" like it was the most obvious thing in the world.

 

Ahhh, gotta love kids. :D

Dd and her best friend decided to draw on my wall.They are 13yo!What did they draw?Me and the creepy neighbor who is older than my parents who is always coming on to me(ewwwww) as stick figures kissing.Then they drew a heart with my name and his in it,together forever.With pen,so it will be difficult to get off with a magic eraser.And the worse part is,this guy came into my room to ask me something(my room is half of a double parlor,so not exactly private).Thankfully there was a pillow covering that part of the wall!!

DH was complaining today about how I always make beans and weiners without the beans.  A little later, I made beans (no weiners, yuck!) and DS (11) said, very dead-pan, "I don't see any weiners".  I was just about to grumble when I saw the small smirk.

Two nights ago, my husband and I were in the front yard with our 2.5 year old daughter.  We were watering the flowers and playing with the hose.  My husband sprayed my daughter (as we have been doing every night in the heat) and she replied, "Daddy stop it, you don't do that to people".

 

Then of course he put the hose down, she promptly picked it up and sprayed him with it :-)

when dd1 was ~22 months, she poked her head out of the bathroom to say "what are you doing, not a toy!" since she knew full well that she shouldn't be playing in the bathroom.

 

the other night, dd2 announced she was going grocery shopping and dd1 says "well, we'll miss you kid."  i just about fell off my chair.

 

dd2 proudly showing me her finger after having picked her nose, i asked if she had boogies on her finger and she replied "no, breakfast!"

Our most recent giggle - ds, 4, took a two week swim class. He learned swimming skills, but, has not learned to swim yet. The next time we went to the pool, he announced " I don't have to wear floaties, I can swim! I have my certificate!"
Yeah... a certificate of completion doesn't actually mean you can swim... smile.gif

Background to understand this one:

 

1. Ds is majorly into sports.

2. We're visiting relatives in Wisconsin. The state animal is the badger. The mascot of the Univ. of Wisconsin teams is the Badger. (Bucky Badger, I believe.) 

 

We were driving and saw a bus that said "Badger Coaches" on the side. Ds said "Is that bus only for the Badger's coaches?" I think he had visions of all the sports coaches riding only that bus.

 

(We explained about the second meaning of 'coach' = bus.)

I was making dinner one night and it included bacon.   DH and I like it crispy....DS likes it rubbery....lol  So I gave him his special bacon pieces and he says to me "yummm.....baaaaacccccooonnn!    Serving this for dinner is a fine way to show respect to a young man such as myself!"   He was 6!

 

We have a family joke kinda where say Shut the front door!   You know like in the commercial and it sounds like she's about to say shut the f*** up.   Well DD3 says Shut the back door!   She will not say front.  lol   It's always back door.  

 

DD3 also tells me, when I inquire as to why she's sleeping in her undies....it feels better.  The sheets and blanket feel nice on you skin.  You should sleep naked Mommy.   (DH&DS sleep in undies, but have never said anything about sheets, so I'm not sure where this comes from!)

 

DS also once put a rice krispie in his ear.   He said he wanted to know what it sounded like. He was 4.

At the library the other day, I had my 2yo on my back.  She told me she was feeling tired and I said we'd go just as soon as I had found my last book.  With kind of a huff of exasperation, she replied, "We have books at home!"

 During the flu outbreak a couple years ago my son (7th grader? 8th?) and I were talking in the car about how more than 50% of the students in his school were out sick.  I then went on to complement his wonderful immune system since he never gets sick.  Absolutely dead pan he says "must be all the boogers I ate as a child...."  Ewwwwwwwwwww

This morning, she was nursing happily, then suddenly unlatched, looked up at me, and said, "Wanna chocolate mama milk now."

There was a commercial on the radio that explained how breastfeeding lowers your risk of getting diabetes and all sorts of  other things.  During most of the commercial the girls were arguing until the commercial stated all the health benefits.  Both girls stopped and whispered to each other.  Next thing I know I got a round of applause and whistle blowing, pats on the back and thank yous for breastfeeding them.  My oldest told me she was proud of my efforts.  Ha!

LOL! My DD1 is lactose intolerant so she drinks soymilk, sometimes chocolate. When I was pregnant with DD2 she asked if she would have that too. I told her that no, she would nurse. DD1 (also nursed until about 2) then requested we put chocolate soymilk in my boobs! LOL!

Today, I was putting my three-year-old in her carseat when she said "Mummy, can I have Miles' blanket on my knees? It's very cold." I put it on, and without skipping a beat she said "Also, can I have my window down? It's hot."

A new one from my toddler! 

 

DH and I were trying to make plans for the evening without DD's input.  DH said to me, "Should we get a M-O-V-I-E tonight, or try for a W-A-L-K to the P-L-A-Y-G-R-O-U-N-D?"  DD looked from one to the other and announced, "I wanna A-B-C-D!"

We were coming back from vacation, and I was commenting to my kids that their hair had gotten lighter because of all the time they'd spent swimming outdoors. Dd looked at my hair and said, "Well, your hair is lighter, but it's mostly because you've got a lot of gray hairs. But at least the hair on your legs is still dark!"

My dd weaned about six months ago. Recently, she's been asking to nurse again. The other day, she asked and I told her my milk is all gone now. She said "Go get more muks. Go buy some at Target."

Ooh, another one from DD yesterday - I was sewing, she was playing with my measuring tape.

 

"Mummy, come here, I want to measure you. You're..." (stretching out tape) "...six months!"

 

In her defence, we recently watched Mary Poppins.

Once I regained myself, I look out in the yard and he's carrying his bike on his shoulders around the yard......
