Emma, Johnny, and Lily Quotes: Crashing Girls

Emma hugging Johnny

Emma: The boys on the playground are really loud. They play loud and scary games, and don’t see where they’re going.
Johnny: Sometime when I am in kindergarten I will crash girls a lot.

On an evening walk:
Johnny: Do telephone poles go to bed?
Mama: No, telephone poles never go to bed.
Johnny: I would like to be a telephone pole.

Eating tuna curry over rice:
Emma: Mama, this food looks like icky stuff, but it tastes good.

Two-year-old Lily, feeling that I’m not giving her request to go to kindergarten due consideration:
Lily: Mom! I’m talking to you about starting kindergarten!
Mama: You have to be five to go to kindergarten.
Lily: But I AM five!

    Oh, my! I’m laughing and loving the fact that you’ve recorded your kids’ thoughts. I’ve got 5 that wish they wre telephone poles, too. Why am I the only one who actually WANTS to go to bed at night? :) Thanks for stopping by the Overflow yesterday!

    Loved these! It’s so cute that she wants to start Kindergarten. And my kids usually think my food looks good, but tastes icky. :)

    Also, you probably did this awhile ago, but your site is looking so great.

    These are all fantastic! Lily certainly sounds like she’s five. :) I hope Johnny’s new career as a telephone pole doesn’t interfere too much with his girl crashing aspirations. Too funny!

  4. Oh MaryAnne, the quotes are my favorite things to read on anyone’s family blog, but Johnny wins, hands down, for best overall best lines, ever! “Sometimes… I will crash girls a lot”! Hahahahaha! So honest, so matter-of-fact, and so funny. Thank you for making me smile today!

  5. Johnny would have good company in my cherubs who would also delight in being an object that didn’t have to go to bed! So gorgeous how the brain of a young child thinks and draws conclusions.

    Tonight Savvy said that she just wants girl children when she is a mummy because boys are too naughty. I said that you don’t get to choose. I told her that God chooses. She then said “Dear God, when I am a mummy, could you please choose girl babies for me”.
