Kid Quotes–and yet another thing I thought I’d never say


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. :)

Describing “Christopher”:
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?
Lily: Yeah.

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!

MaryAnne lives is a craft loving educator, musician, photographer, and writer who lives in Silicon Valley with her husband Mike and their four children.

  1. 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.

  2. 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………

  3. 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.

  4. 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!)

  5. LOL! Those are really funny! I (almost) can’t wait for my LO to start talking just because of the funny things LOs say!
