One thing I love about parenting is that my kids make me laugh with all the things they say. Here are a few favorite kid quotes that I’ve heard recently. :)
Lily (three years old): He is that tall [holds hands about eight inches apart] and he has teensy ears.
Johnny (four years old): Is he a baby?
Lily: Yeah. He is that tall [holds hands about four inches apart], and his ears are teensy.
Johnny: Is he a doll?
Emma (six years old), pointing at dark clouds in the sky:
Those are the clouds that pee all the time.
Playing with magnetic word strips:
Emma: This one says, “cute”. That should be Lily.
Lily walks in
Emma (holding out the “cute” word strip): This one says, “cute”.
Lily: That’s me!
Emma: Yes! You’re cute!
Emma, after hearing Anna (1 month) burp:
That’s louder than anyone in my class can burp!
Add this to the list of things I never thought I would say:
"It’s not safe for babies to eat kids."
Talking to Johnny (4) and Lily (3) about why they shouldn’t try to stick their fingers in Baby Anna’s mouth…
Anna’s hat was a present from Holly at Stitch/Craft – isn’t it gorgeous? Someday I will learn how to knit – and how to make perfect pom poms!

Kids are so much fun!!
These are always the best!!!
That is so cute! Your kids will have fun reading these quotes some day! Have a great weekend Maryanne!
loving the burp one! and that hat anna is wearing is soooo stinkin’ cute!
You just made laugh out loud at the thing you thought you’d never say. Great quotes!
Hilarious! We love getting to hear all the silly things kiddos say in the toy store :D
Love how Lily knows she’s cute. :)
Not safe to eat kids! HA!
Love the quotes!!!!!
That is the cutest picture. Love the hat. I wish I could knit, crochet, sew – sigh, I am lacking in that area.
Anna just gets more adorable by the minute!! How is that even possible???!! The pom-pom hat is perfect. Bliss…
Love that Lily owns her “cute” identity. :) Your kids are so precious.
I used to keep a list of things I never thought I’d say as a parent, but have gotten out of the habit.
Well, take comfort in the fact that you may not be able to knit but you can make wonderful crocheted items :) My crocheting skills sadly languish at the I can mostly make a scarf………
Hahahaha! Your quote made me laugh at loud – as did Emma’s about the peeing clouds. They will love hearing these things they have said when they are older.
OK first of all, the pic is too cute! Looks like shes talking up a storm already..and yes kids say the darnest things really!
Usually I like your kid quotes, but this time, yours is my favorite! Anna is adorable in her hat! (and I just used the old wrap-yarn-around-your-fingers method for the pom-pom! The secret is to be ruthless in the trimming!)
I love these. :-) So funny that Lily said “that’s me!” of cute.
LOL! Those are really funny! I (almost) can’t wait for my LO to start talking just because of the funny things LOs say!
Glad I am not the only one who keeps track of things like this! I have a whole page on my blog dedicated to them (I used to use facebook statuses, but the new format doesn’t work too well for it). At the end of the year I put them all together in a book.
What a fantastic idea!
Totally made me smile! Kid talk is the best!
