Kid Quotes

Today, I found myself thinking about some of the cute/funny things that my kids have said and done over the years.
Here are a few of them.

While we were driving somewhere one day, the kids were in the back seat talking, and Brielle (age 5 at the time) said "Aaron, you're such an idiot!"
My husband said "Brielle, that's an awful thing to say, you should never say that to anyone!"
to which Brielle replies "But that's what Mom calls all the other drivers on the road!"
(then I say "Well............... they are.")


Aaron was about 5 when he asked me "What color is gravity?"


We were at CJ's karate promotion. There was a class full of kids testing that night, and they were all seated quietly on the floor meditating, while the karate instructors were discussing their tests, and determining who would pass and receive their new belts.
The studio was also packed full of parents and family members, quietly waiting............

You get the picture. Basically a large group of people, all very quiet.
VERY quiet.

Aaron is three. He is bored. He is laying on the floor in front of my chair, and I am amazed at how quiet he has been so far. He then begins to roll towards the karate floor. He crosses the line on the floor where only the karate students are allowed to be. I quickly lean over, grab the back belt loop of his pants, and drag him the two feet back to my chair.

He stands up.

He clenches his fists and sticks out his chest and says..............


(Just for the record, I DID NOT give him a wedgie.)


Brielle came home from first grade one day and said "Hey, my friend's mom is 29 years old just like you, except I think she counts in REAL years, not the kind you use."


CJ was three. We drove past a house that had some beautiful flowers growing in the front yard.
I said "Oh CJ look at all those pretty daffodils and tulips!"
The next day we drove past the same house, and CJ says "Hey Mom, look at the pretty daffylips!"


Much to CJ's dismay, I now refer to all spring flowers as "daffylips"
I just love "kid invented" words. Do you ever start using the invented words instead of the real ones, just because they're so darn cute?

Here are some words my kids have come up with. Can you guess their real meanings
1. Fwowfies
2. Beggy
3. Sassies
4. Fuhriginator
5. Frork
6. Butter frork7. Hodepo
8. Ayaya (you will NEVER guess this one)
9. Aahzuldee
10. Boosta
11. Feep

(Spell check didn't like any of those words;0)


Jessica G. said... that Home Depot? My youngest calls it that, too.

"Daffylips" is great! I'm gonna start using that one.

I love kid words! We have smanwiches here :)

Tausha said...

your kids crack me up. I think that all moms should do a post like this about once a month so that we can be reminded of how funny are kids are and that they are not always devil children ALL THE TIME!
i love the Daffylips-
we wear jabamas at our house:)

When we go swimming we put on our "swimming soups". I just love saying that. :)

Lois said...

Oh, these were hilarious! I think "What Color is Gravity" should be the name of a self-help book.

I have no idea what those words are! Are you going to give us the answers?

We call harmonicas hunka-munkas at our house.

Hey It's Di said...

Love the things that kids say! I have had a child or two repeat the things I have called other drivers. Like yours, my hubby didn't find it too agreeable:)

My son likes Beef Turkey. (Jerky)

Cute post. Aren't kids so unknowingly funny? The first one really cracked me up. I find our daughter saying things all the time that I hear coming out of my own mouth. Luckily it's not all bad. It warms my heart when she says something really sweet that I say too...

Bonnie said...

My kids call home depot. Mo pepol. It is still that for us. I couldn't guess many. No interpretation skills for this girl.

Heidi said...

Ha! We use "hanitizer" for hand sanitizer. It really caught on because it's just faster . . . even our grandparents are using it now!

Elizabeth said...

For some reason my nephew translted Santa Claus into
Henna Tron...never could figure out how that happened, but I still like Henna Tron. One neice had a language all her own, which the family spoke fluently. She's eleven now...gave it up a long time ago, mores the pity.
Blessings, EJT
