It’s been a while since I posted one of these. I love the fun things my kids say – such an interesting look into their world! I have been recording these for a few years now; you can find all of my kid quotes here. Do you keep track of the fun things that your kids say?
Lily (5 years old): Why does Anna (2 years old) copy me all the time?
Anna (2 years old): I love you, Lily!
I’m sitting next to Anna (two years old) when she starts yelling:
Anna: MOOOOM! MOOOOM! MOOOM!
Me: I’m right here.
Anna: MOOOOOM! MOOOM!
calmly, to me:
I’m calling another mom.
My kids often pretend that one of them is “mom”, and I will respond to them talking to the pretend “mom” thinking that they are talking to me and they will think I am being ridiculous for thinking they were talking to me. Apparently they confuse each other, too.
Anna: Mom, help?
Lily walks over to help.
Anna (indignantly): No! BIG mom!
Johnny (7 years old) is practicing his 6x tables using our multiplication wrap-up* (his idea, not mine).
Johnny: This is hard!
Me: I guess it’s good you are practicing, then.
Johnny: It’s fun. I like the challenge!

Emma (9 years old): When I grow up, I want to be a teacher with a pilot’s license so I can take my students on trips anytime I want, anywhere in the world.
Emma: I hope they let the president eat simple food sometimes, like sandwiches. Not just fancy restaurant food.
What fun things are your kids saying these days?
