My favorite recent kid quotes!
Walking to school:
Emma (6 years old): Mama! The leaves are so pretty!
Mama: Yes! They are beautiful!
Emma: Yep! Like me!
Dada: Where did Mama come from? How did I find Mama?
Lily (3 years old): Nowhere. Just in the house.
Johnny (4.5 years old) and Lily (3 years old) are playing together:
Johnny: We’re going to Costco, to get a new sister.
Johnny wants a coloring page. I tell him I’ll get it for him once he cleans up his toys. He promptly tells Lily to clean up. She ignores him, so he comes to me:
Johnny: Lily wants a coloring page, but she’s not cleaning up.
Me: Are you cleaning up?
Johnny: No. I told Lily to clean up, but she’s not!

Johnny is practicing to be a manager :) Lovely quotes and a great photo!
Hahaha I love the things kids say!
Oh my goodness, he is too clever! These are so sweet and FUNNY!
That is an awesome picture of the kids! Frame worthy!
I LOVE these! I find myself often telling myself to write down something cute or funny that my children say but am notoriously bad about actually implementing it. I shudder to think of all the lost tid-bits I have already forgotten but look forward to many,many years of happy silliness.
So adorable! What a great way to record some of the priceless things they say. You have inspired me to do the same. My 6 year old is constantly pushing for a posterity award.
“Posterity award” – love it!
I love that photo and Emma is right – she is beautiful. I so enjoy reading your kids’ quotes and am trying to be better at writing my kids’ quotes down. Will be so fun for your kids to look back at these when they are older.
LOL at going to Costco to buy a new sister. The kids are so beautiful, what a great picture!
Cute photo and fabulous quotes! May our children always know how beautiful they are. And isn’t it hilarious how young kids can’t imagine you were to be found anywhere but just in the house?? Glad Mike found you wherever he did… ;)
We met first day of freshman orientation at Stanford :)
These are so precious! I love the confidence that little girls have about their looks, wish there was a way to bottle that when they become teenagers! I told my daughter she looks cute, she said, “I know.” :)
Exactly! Why can’t we all see that we’re as beautiful as autumn leaves – that are stunning, imperfections and all?
I love kid logic. Princess does the same thing, actually all 3 of them. I want this, so my brother/sister should do it for me…..
Kids are hilarious. I had no idea you could buy sisters at Costco. :)
lol that was news to me, too!
