Child talk

Those of you that have read my blog before will know that I am no stranger to speaking inappropriately at the most inopportune time! This trait seems to have been inherited by my eldest daughter. We recently went to collect take out from a local restaurant. As we walked through the door, the hostess said, “Aren’t you pretty” to my 3.5yr old, who calmly replied “I just tooted, and there may be more!” We won’t be getting take out from there, any time in the near future!

This made me think about the funny things that she has said recently and I thought i’d share the laughter..

At Christmas I told DD that we needed Santas address to mail her Christmas list. She replied “I don’t think he’d like a dress, he’s a boy!”  I couldn’t argue with that!

Driving in the car she announces, “erm, you know Jesus can see us everywhere” ” he’s looking down from the sky” so I say “yes a lot of people say that he can see everything. She responds, can “Nanna Linda see me all the time too as she’s in England and that’s in the sky?” so then we get to the,  “how high is heaven because we went on a plane in the sky to England” I’m thinking, surely she’s too young to be questioning this?

We went shopping recently and when we went to the counter to pay, she looked up at a lady who was wearing a Hijab and loudly said “why are you wearing a hood inside?” I quickly leapt in to some kind of answer around religion and cultural differences. I did not see that one coming.

My favourite is when we were discussing my step sister who is pregnant. I told her that the baby in her Aunties belly was a boy baby and asked what she thought they should call it.. With hand on hip and arm outstretched she said, matter of fact… “Jesus”!

    LOL! They do come out with the most mind numbing questions.

    Recently when we were in the loos at M&S my 4 yr old son said “The lady next to us just farted and she didn’t say pardon.” I couldn’t get out there quick enough.
