Kid Quotes: Cruel Jackets

Fun kid quotes to make you smile.

Kid quotes are one of the many rewarding aspects of parenting. I love seeing the world through my children’s eyes, and the things they say brighten my day. I try to write down these moments – I miss many, but love the ones I have. My kids also love to go through and read things they said when they were small.

Anna (3 years old) is crying, but not in a way that makes me think she is truly suffering.
Me: What’s wrong?
Anna: Emma (9 years old) is being mean.
Me (surprised, because Emma is usually great with Anna): What is Emma doing that is mean?
Anna: She is wearing her jacket, and I don’t like that!

Anna, looking over the outfit she just put on:
This is not right. It is just not right.
She changed. Twice.

Johnny (8 years old), playing with two LEGO minifigures:
Minifigure 1: Look at my muscles! Aren’t they awesome?
Minifgure 2: What muscles are you talking about? Those aren’t your muscles.

Johnny is practicing piano, trying to play a piece from memory but missing about half the notes.
Me: I think you need to use the music. You are missing a lot of notes.
Johnny: No! I’m playing the song!
Me: It only counts as the song if you play the right notes.
Johnny: Some of the notes are right.

Anna, singing:
I like to be a silly girl, I like to be a silly girl. Silly girl, silly girl!

Emma (9 years old) is reading a word problem:
A shirt is on sale for $35 when it would normally cost $105.
Wow, I would buy that shirt!
Why stores have sales. Also, what kind of math book presents a $35 shirt as being a good deal?

Emma: Can we have candy? And/or some real food?

What fun things have your kids been saying lately?

  1. Ha ha ha ha, maybe they’ve been shopping at Justice? I remember a few years ago my niece was into that store and having sticker shock at the prices of clothes there.

    These are all priceless! Like you, I’m thinking the person who wrote the math book shops somewhere different than I do… And the mini figure muscles are cracking me up. :)
