Kid Quotes: Just Like Mine


Being silly with Grandpa.

One of my favorite things about being a mom is listening in on my kids’ conversations! Here are some kid quotes that made me smile recently:

Putting on a fleece hooded sweatshirt with hearts on it:
Lily (3 years old): E [a boy at school] has a shirt just like this one!
Me: Oh yeah?
Lily: Yeah. But it doesn’t have hearts on it.
Me: Is it soft like yours?
Lily: No.
Me: Does it have a hood?
Lily: Yes!



On Valentine’s Day:
Johnny (5 years old): I’m glad today is Valentine’s Day, because red is O’s favorite color. [O is a friend from school]


Emma (7 years old): I don’t like having the song “Frosty the Snowman” in my head all the time.


Playing Star Wars with their Legos:
Emma (7 years old): Come to the good side, right now! Or else go in time out.

  1. I love when kids say “just like mine” but the only thing that might be just like theirs would be a hood or a similar color. J often asks that we match on the weekends. We’d both wear our favorite science shirts and Stanford sweatshirts. It warms my heart.

  2. I wish it worked to just tell them to come to the good side……. My daughter decided she needed to work on keeping her temper so she can stay on the good side.
