The funny things kids say

I love how honest kids are. They just have no social responsibility to obey the rules of etiquette — they can say things that grown-ups could never, ever get away with saying! And sometimes it is SO funny the things that come out of their little mouths. The other day my son (pictured) told me my forehead was bumpy (wrinkly). The week before he told me, as he sat in the bathroom with me, that my bum was too big it didn’t fit on the toilet! He has also told me that my sister’s boobs ‘look better’ than mine (which, by the way, is definitely true!). It’s a good thing I’m not overly sensitive — my self-esteem would be shattered by now with the amount of honest remarks my kids make. So tell me… what funny things have your kids said recently? Do you also have a ‘bumpy’ forehead or a ‘big bum’? And when do kids start to realise that they can’t be so honest all the time?

hilarious! I just got yesterday from izzy that it looked like a baby was in growing in my tummy (there’s not one – i was bending over). i assured her that there wasn’t a baby and she said: oh you must have just eaten too much food.

uh…. thanks!

(hope sf was good to you!!)

Ha! I love it, I was also asked tonight if I had a baby in my tummy because my tummy was sooo big! There is no baby in my tummy, for sure!

We sat our three boys down and old them that “in 6 months time you’re going to have a little baby sister.” Our middle son who was about 7 at the time said, “When are you going to get close and make her?”

a friend of a friend of mine who has 4 children was told by her son:
‘Mummy, your boobs are so lovely, they’re so…. long!’
what a compliment!

Oh Joanna, that is SO funny about the ‘long’ boobs! Hilarious!
And MamaPo, I agree — it’s scary when you hear your kids quoting you! Eeeek!
And Sonia, if it’s any consolation about not being clever enough for Legos… in our house if ANYTHING breaks, the kids will say ‘I guess we’ll have to wait for Dada to get home to fix it.” They don’t even give me the chance!! ha ha ha….

On the beach, Fitz spotted a beer belly and shouted “Look mummy, that man’s got a baby in his tummy too!”

Yesterday morning my daughter and I were having a cuddle and she was stroking my face. “Mummy, you’re so pretty,” (good start) “you have such a soft and lovely, small face . . . except for your nose.” We both had to laugh!

Haha, love those innocent truths that just seem to fall out of their mouths ;-) My worst though is when they start quoting me, verbatim, when they’re playing mini-Mummy & Daddy to their toys. Makes me sound pretty scary!!

My 2 year old has started to call everyone either a mom or a dad instead of a man or a woman but lately she’s been throwing Grandma into the mix!
Last weekend at the community pool she kept pointing at a woman with grey hair and yelling – GRANDMA, GRANDMA!
But she wasn’t a grandma at all!

Those are so funny. I can handle the comments at home, it’s the ones in public that kill me. Yesterday my son blessed me with “that man next to us is extreeeeemly fat, mama – do you think he might explode” at the post office, and later, “oh, that lady is really very ug-er-ly”! Eek!

I was told by my 5 year old that I’m the ugliest mum at the school gates. Considering that there are about 300 kids in his school (and nearly as many mums), I thought that was quite an achievement!

pointing at a shampoo bottle my son said “who is that?” just a model. doesnt she have pretty hair? “yes and a pretty nose”. oh thats nice. does mama have a pretty nose too? “no just a normal nose”. :) recently when I was putting on my swimsuit for a beach he laughed and said, ” I like mamas boobs. I want to pinch them” as if not enough he went on to say ” I want to dream about mamas boobs”. oh goodness.
