I remember when three of my younger sisters were 2, 4, and 6. We were in the car and they had something edible, but only one. My 4 year old sister said, "That's okay...we will just split it in threes!"
The 2 year old rolled her eyes, look exhasperated and said in a really dry tone, "You mean thirds?"

Now mind you, there is absolutely NO cussing that goes on in my parents house...not them our any of the siblings. And yet somehow, this same sister, at age 2, whenever she was upset, started yelling "Damage!"

My friend's daughter is a real card. She's almost 4, cute as a button and very funny.

At her 3rd birthday party, many many people told her what a big girl she was. Finally at the end of the party as we were leaving to go play at the coffeeshop (they have a children's play area), I was holding her hand and she went down the stairs like a big girl. So of course, I said, "Josie, you're such a big girl!" She looks up at me dead in the eye and with the exact same inflection , says "No YOU"RE a big girl." I just about died laughing.

Another great moment. I was babysitting and she had just had a major tantrum that she was calming down from. However as I was putting her PJs on, the waterworks started again. Our conversation (a complete nonsequitur)
Me: What's wrong, Josie?
Josie: I want to be big!
Me: Why do you want to be big?
Josie: So I can play baseball. I want to grow up and be a baseball player.
Me: Ummmm, well you still have time to grow.
Josie: <tears stop> Okay! Can we have pizza now?

Another great conversation: We were shopping for flower girl dresses with her parents (Josie and her sister were both flowergirls in my wedding) at Burlington coat factory. Lovely dresses, nicely priced. We went to have Josie quickly try on over her shorts and tank top an ivory dress with poofy skirt. She suddenly without warning melts into tears.
Me: Josie sweetie, what's wrong?
J: <wailing and screaming> IT'S NOT MY BIRTHDAY
Me: <failing to get the point> Right, it's in three months. Don't you want to try on the pretty dress?
J: I can't wear the pretty dress; it's not my birthday (still wailing). <somehow she had gotten the impression that party dresses were only for wearing on your birthday>
Me: Well, can we pretend it's your birthday?
Josie: <Tears dry up immediately and smiles> Okay! This is a pretty dress!

She cracks me up. Bit spazzy and a drama queen but so funny.

Kade just turned 5 on Monday. He doesn't quite understand the birthday thing yet. He thinks it's a holiday like christmas. So instead of telling everyone it's his birthday, he tells everyone else Happy Birthday, and tries to give them presents. We got him his first bicycle. The first words out of his mouth was "YAY you got me a bicycle for my birthday!!!!! Where's Korbin's birthday bicycle? It's Korbin's birthday, he wants bicycle too. Can we go to walmart and get bicycle for Korbin's birthday?" He is so adorable, and such a generous little boy. I'm so lucky.

You know how you lift up your kids shirt a little and then pull their pants out to see if they have a poopie diaper?

Well this is my son's new favorite thing to do... in the store, at home, pretty much anywhere

He comes up behind you and lifts your shirt up a little and takes a sniff and goes "You poopie Mommy" and then "You stink". Oh it's lovely

When my eldest was little she was being especially adorable one day. I looked at her - my heart filled to overflowing and said, "I sure love you a lot." She looked straight into my eyes with this wisdom beyond her years and says, "I love Snow White."

Of course you do baby.
If you focus on the negative not only is that what you'll see, that's what you'll be.
Got another one Kade just said. We told him his grandma was going to throw him a birthday party tomorrow and he said. "You don't throw the party, that's not very nice! Say you're sorry!"
My friend's baby brother dropped his cracker into my hand by accident. I gave it back to him, and he stared at it thoughtfully. Then he stuck his little hand out and offered me the cracker. My heart melted into a puddle of happiness. It was so cute!
I am loving these! Kids are surprisingly smart and they pick up on things that you wouldn't expect!

He's outgrown it. Now he'll say something like, "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse," and follow it up with, "that's an idiom, mom."

A few minutes ago, my little one asked me for some milk, as she rubbed her eyes. Next thing I know, she's holding her finger out. I don't see anything and she says, "it's crust." You had to be there, I guess.

We were in a restaurant with an aquarium last week and Karan was looking at the fish. One of the fish was hiding in the corner of the tank.

"That fishie is in the corner. He's in time out!!"


These are so cute! Thought of another one from my son, when he was about 5. The cashier at the store gave him a sucker. He was eating it and was holding the wrapper in his hand to wrap the stick in when he was done (I have him do that to prevent sticks stuck on the floor in the car).

It was really windy outside, and when we were in the parking lot his wrapper blew away. He yells, "My wrapper!" I said, "It's ok, the wind blew it away." He replies rather poutily, "Well, the wind needs to give it back!"

Kade came up with another one today. My mom's not home and I have to tell someone.

Kade: Mommy I spilled the juice I need spray n wash for tough stains, and a rug doctor to clean the floor.

Me (laughing) what for hun?

Kade: I spilled the juice, it's a really tough stain. Spray n wash is very good for tough stains.

Me (laughing even more): really now?

Kade: And I spilled it on the floor, can I have a rug doctor please?

My son has become a commercial. And for the record I haven't bought spray n wash since he was a newborn.
