Heard in my house:

"Mommy, can I have a pickle?"

"Yes, you may."

"Mommy, can I have [whipped] cream on it?"

"Wait. On what?" [Sure that I'm misunderstanding] "On the pickle?!!"


"Honey, that will not taste good. That will be gross."

"No!! But Mommy, it will be great!"


At the library - to another mom:

"I'm 4! I don't drink beer or wine!"

(((The was the sound of my Good Mommy Certificate being ripped to shreds)))

I could not get out of there fast enough.


What amazing things have your kids said recently?


  1. Daddy: How many inches makes a foot?
    Daughter: Six dollars.


    Daughter brings imaginary food to Daddy.
    Daddy pretends to eat.
    Daughter: "You got money for that?"
    Daddy: "How much does it cost?"
    Daughter: "20 pounds."
    Daddy: "We're not in England! (laugh) How much money do you want?"
    Daughter: "One."
    Daddy: "One what?"
    Daughter: "One money!"
    ………Seconds later, daughter comes up to me grinning - "I got four monies! Daddy give it to me!"

  2. Well my "niece" (best friend's daughter) has been taught the word "jagermeister" by her actual Aunt (who is 21 and finds it amusing to corrupt the 3yr old)...
    My niece also tried to offer her cousin (also 3) a beer, but said "beard" instead. LOL

  3. Sophie threw herself on the couch, arm across her forehead, eyes closed and said "I can't believe this is happening!"

  4. Needless to say I have not gone to the bathroom alone since I had a have always been honest about the names of our body parts when talking to him so he knows all proper names.

    Long story short:
    While playing with an electronic united states map he hits a state and the lady's voice says "virginia" through the speaker. Spencer looks up and says "Ahhh, mommy you have a virginia".....has to be the best "darndest things kids say" moment! :)

  5. 5 year old in my Sunday school class: "why do you have an erring in your nose?"

    7 year old before I could answer: "cause she likes pretty things and she only has 2 ears"

  6. Me: Maya, do you love me?
    Maya (age 2): Mommy is an elephant!
    Me: Thanks, kid!
