Had such a stressful morning with 21mo DD today until she had me in stitches...

Usually when I give her a satsuma I hold each segment up to the light to check for pips and she takes them one by one. Today she started copying me, holding up her satsuma segments one by one over her head and laughing hysterically. She has absolutely no idea why you have to hold a satsuma segment above your head before you eat it but apparently it's very funny!

I asked my 2 yo DS what he wanted for dinner recently and he replied: "Pudding." It had me in stitches but he just looked bemused like "And??"

If you say to DD2(4) something like "DD2, you aren't going to be naughty at daddy's are you?" She says "I willn't"

She also still calls peanut butter keynut butter for some reason even though she can say it properly.

DD3(2) is an annoying back seat driver, she is always telling me I'm going the wrong way!

Oh and my Godson at 2 had trouble pronouncing "stairs". The fun we had - "where's mummy gone?" "Oh she up arse" grin

DS (2 at the time) thinks we go to work to givecus something to do when he is at nursery.

DD when I was changing her nappy yesterday: Mummy, I got a hole in my botty! shock

'I'm sitting on a spoon mummy.'
So said ds1 at breakfast.
I checked. And checked again.
'Only joking mummy!'

I didn't think they were able to lie until later on!

We have bounceline instead of trampoline (but only at gym his home trampoline is called the 'jump jump').

I used to always try to do something fun with DS1 on my day off and one evening I asked what he would like to do tomorrow and he replied 'a poo' grin

These are so great I can't stop laughing to write some of my DS pearls grin

I am rather deaf and often have trouble with what dgc say unless I am wearing my hearing aid.I reported to dd something dgs[aged5] had said and he piped up;"Grandma misunderheard again Mummy"!

DD is another one who at 22 months struggles to differentiate between liquids. In her case everything is 'water'. I spent a Saturday morning recently with cups containing water, juice and milk. She seemed to have grasped the difference, we moved on to other things and later went to the 2nd birthday party of a friend's DS. On entering the room DD went round noting every child's 'juice' and all the adults' glasses of 'water' which were in fact Champagne. I now have regular jibes about 'Mummy's special water' from my friend wine

Wetting myself here at "happy new beard" (fgrin) they're all just so cute!

I was telling DD1 3.10 about our plans over xmas and got to Boxing day. She looks at me and says "Boxing day? Whys it called Boxing day?" I vaguely know but hadnt a clue how to explain so I just said I wasnt sure.

A minute later she says "people are so silly punching each other!" grin

I was making a cup of tea earlier and DD (2) said 'when i'm a mummy I drink tea to'. when ds doesn something she can't/isn't allowed she says 'I do that when I'm a boy'

When the kids race up to the front door DS will say 'I won' and she will say 'me two' which leads to great arguments as they talk at complete cross purposes with DS insisting that he won fair and square and her insisting she was indeed two!

And then the xmas one

'we wish you a mewwy cwissmas and a happy new Beard'

DD1 (just 5) is learning Adding Up and Adding Down at school (ie subtraction). And she insists on singing "jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun to kiss your eyes...." - she just won't believe its not that hmm

DS(2.2) used to call it a jumpoline too, I think it's a great word. However, I used it the other day and he looked at me very seriously and said 'trampoline, mummy'.

I stand corrected grin

Oh and comedy dt is having a phase of affectionately calling people "egg".

SusieSausages Mon 17-Dec-12 21:29:13

grin at DON'T TOUCH IT!

Ah these are all so lovely.

I've just remembered another one: When DD wants to watch TV she holds the two remote controls up to the telly and asks for "Beebies". That's very logical, of course as we thought she was just calling CBeebies, "Beebies" until the other day I caught her counting the remote controls: "One beebie, two beebies."

CindySherman Sat 15-Dec-12 18:03:08

It will always be a jumpoline in this house now....

OscarPistoriusBitontheside Sat 15-Dec-12 11:50:56

Ds1 used to still does refer to hotels as home-tels and it was always farmer Christmas here too! Which makes me grin because I grew up on a farm.

Ds2 is 2yo so confusion reigns at the moment. He refers to all liquid as "juice". So if he sees a boat for instance it's a "boash a juice". He can't say th or t yet. smile

I love how my comedian twin1 who is three picks up catchphrases; "oh me lord!" "'S gone wrong gromit!" Also how he can't say hungry but instead says "funky" - "oh mummy moo, me am reeeeeaaaaaaaallllllyyyyy funky though...."

I'll be so sad when dd stops saying lellow. She also gets confused between bike and bicycle, so she just calls them bikles. We love asking her to say yellow bicycle. "Lellow bikle" aaaw! smile

CindySherman Sat 15-Dec-12 10:49:37

Aw these are great. DD used to look at her little trike with a face on it and say " you're not talking today are you? " she did this for ages! She must have figured out at some point it wasn't going to...
