I had to post this, since I've been cracking up about it since Saturday.

The boys were in the bath, and they started screeching:


My wife: Ben! Use your inside voice.

Ben (quietly): eeeeeEEEEEeeeee.

"I don't have any coughs anymore."

Every male person outside the family is currently known and greeted as 'Funny Man'. Or occasionally 'Mr Tumble' (the latter unfortunately applies to women as well).

In the elevator at the gym with my wife, Owen read another woman's thoughts by asking "are you twins?" and then answered himself "yeah."

Thank you for starting this thread. I love this stuff.

A friend at work has a two year old who has started using "Obama" as a name for pretty much everyone. He asks qustions all the time about Obama too. They're potty training him and so the other night she was asking Henry who poops. He said, "Mama poops and Daddy poops and Henry poops!" She asked who else poops thinking he's say grandma or something and he replied with, "Obama poops!!"

my 7 year old nephew to his mom:

"I stopped sucking my thumb. When you get older it loses its taste."

sleeve, Tuesday, 10 February 2009 02:17 (ten years ago) Permalink

That is exactly what I concluded about thumb-sucking (at an embarrassingly older age). Though it took having my arm in a plaster cast for seemingly years (I broke my arm three times in quick succession) to stop me in the end.

Also, Obama totally does poop!

My kids are too old for their current sayings to be here...

But, Alice (particularly) would say such WTF things back in the day. Most (or, man) are all over ILE, but here's one of the top ones...

She was about four, I reckon.

I was explaining the whole "eggs in mummy's tummy" business.

Alice: "But how did the eggs get there?"
Me: "They were all there when Mummy was born"
Alice: "hmm. So, that means My egg and Amber's egg are exactly the same age"
Me: ".... yeah!"
Alice: (saying nothing, but now has decided Amber doesn't have 2 years superiority anymore)

haha yeah

i was driving beeps home from daycare last week and had silver jews playing in the car. so black and brown blues comes on and i start singing along at the top of my voice when i look in the rear view mirror and beeps is smacking her knee along with the song with a big smile on her face. she catches me looking at her and says 'you go, mama!'. let it be known i have the worst singing voice ever. kid is good for the ego.

I love that my kids love my singing. It helps that it's mutual; when they're caterwauling away I tend to complement them (you know, like you do when they bring you their latest painting or sculpture).

My youngest kid, age 2, went canvassing with my wife for the Dems during the campaign last fall. Now she's taken to calling the paper subscription inserts in magazines, "Democrats". I guess it's because they're like the voter info cards that we distributed? But now she is hoarding a big pile of these things and gets angry when you take her Democrats. Silly stuff but I love it.

Howie knows a lot of animal names but always calls a cat "Miaow", even though he can spell the word. Hence the following conversation:

Us: "Howie, what's the first letter of cat?"
Howie: "C!"
"And what's the second letter of cat?"
"And what's the last letter of cat?"
"[Pointing to letters in book] So, what does 'C-A-T' spell, Howie?"
"[Thinks for a moment...} Miaow!"

A few weeks ago, Ava was being extremely naughty, pushing Pam away, shouting "Don't talk to me! Don't look at me!", etc. Pam wrote down "Naughty girls don't get visits from their friends or treats or get to go to the park" on a slip of paper and handed it to the noncommunicative hell-child.

Ava read it out loud, looked at the paper for a few seconds and then announced, "I'm going to tear this into tiny pieces." It was all Pam could do not to burst out laughing right there...

Alice has been known to bang her fist on the table and yell 'dammit!' but I strongly suspect her dad has been coaching her for his own amusement. Though come to think of it she's also started a thing of regularly shouting 'it's a deal!' and shaking hands with us. Clearly a future CEO :(

daughter Opal (turned 2 a month ago) is finally old enough for me to take part in this.

My wife always calls her "Peanut" and often if you refer to her as something else, she says "no, I'm a Peanut"

And when we put her to bed I always say "see you later, alligator" hoping eventually she'll say "in a while crocodile" because she did that once.

Tonight we left the room with the last thing being my saying that. After the door closed we heard her say:

"I'm not an alligator. Daddy always says alligator. I'm a peanut. I'm a peanut.....(pause)....honey roasted peanut"

Opal, age 2 and 1 month, has a best friend named Pete, born the same week and lives around the corner. Pete's parents work different shifts and they have a nanny who's not always available so they met with a new potential back-up baby-sitter.

I'm not sure where he plans to find these cash-infused orbs, bu I did tell him he'd better learn what this weekend was all about or there wouldn't be any eggs, cash, cream or chocolate.

He studies Google for a moment, and then says, "Ah, here it is. Easter is all about the research action of Jesus Christ."

Now opal constantly pretends to go to work. She picks up some kind of bag, really any bag, and says "I have to go to work. Have to bring home the bacon" and she walks to the front door, waits 10 seconds then comes back and says "I back, I bring home the bacon".

Fast-forward a few hours, I need to go to the bathroom and Opal insists on joining. She really doesn't like being left alone that much especially if we go to the bathroom. We're going to be potty training soon so we figure it's educational anyway. She comes in and sits down and says "what're you doing?" and I say "I'm going to the bathroom" and she says "pee-pee"

and then she yells out "Pee-Pee and J!"
