From the Mouths of Babes…

I asked my Twitter buddies with young kids to share with me some of their favorite “kid quotes.” When my son, Matt, was between ages 2 and about 5, I wrote down a lot of the funny or sweet things he said, and now I’m so glad I did.

This is a great keepsake, not only for parents, but for your kids to share with their kids one day. Check out these gems:

Mom to 2 year old: “Did you just pee pee on the floor?” 2-year-old: “Nope. My underpants just cried.”

2 year old during prayers: “Please, God, help me get Mommy and Daddy to let me watch more T.V. Amen.”

2 year during prayers, “Thank you, God, for Honey Nut Cheerios.”

7 year old: “Mommy, I love you. You are pure like gold.”

3 year old: Mom, how did I get into your tummy?” Mom: “Daddy helped put you there.” 3 year old: Did Daddy help me get out?” Mom: “Not so much.”

5 year old: “Mom, what’s Heaven again?” Mom: “That’s where Grandpa is with God and all the other people who have died.” 5 year old: “God DIED?

5 year old: “Why is there a hole in this bench?” Mom: “What’s the bench made of?” 5 year old: “Wood!” Mom: “Where do we get wood?” 5 year old: “Home Depot!”

3 year old: “Mom, thanks for marrying someone I like so much.”

    When my son was 2, my husband sat down and started telling him how much his daddy loved him and how special he was, and how they’d be friends for their whooooole lives, and how lucky they were to have that. He took a breath and my wide-eyed boy looked up and said…

    “Some trucks don’t have trailers.”

    Which, of course, has become our family catchphrase when conversations get too deep or confusing. Because it’s true-they don’t.

    Kim, I absolutely LOVE that! And I have to share it with my son because it’s true — they don’t! Thanks for sharing.

    My second overheard us talking to the first about “female parts.” He only heard enough to come flying around the corner into the bedroom yelling, “Who’s from China?!?”

    We use that against him a LOT. :-)
