In the pre school room of my nursery today, a small group of 3/4 yo and myself were talking about food. This gave me a good laugh I hope it can do the same for you smile

Me: what is daddy making for dinner tonight?
Child 1: marshmallows, crisps and sausages.
Me: my goodness. I dont think mummy would be too happy about that.
Child 1: I wont either. I want a biscuit and a glass of juice as well.


Me: what did you have for dinner last night?
Child 2: fish fingers, potato, peas and carrots.
Me: yum yum. Did you eat it all up?
Child 2: I didnt eat the carrots.
Me: oh dear, but carrots help you see in the dark.
Child2: I can just use my torch to see in the dark.

Cant argue with that logic grin

I was having a conversation with a 3yo the other day, was saying about how it was great having her around because it meant I could play with toys without anyone judging me (was more talking to myself than her haha) when she looked up all serious and said, 'yes, because no one will notice you if I'm here'

I don't know if she meant because she is more interesting than me, or that she was happy to be my alibi, but either was, was much more insightful than I was expecting haha

grin I love it when children come back with really incredulous and very adult responses like that one about the torch.

They are so funny at that age. My 3 year old comes out with some crackers at times, has DH and I in stitches.

Other day I was in the shower and DS needed the loo soin hestrolls. Sits on toilet and can see me through the shower screen.
Ds: Do you have a willy mummy?
Me: No son, I dont have a willy
Ds: oh.

Finishes his wee and comes to have a closer look
Ds: Mummy you do have a willy!
Me: hmm

I am always being outsmarted by my three year old blush

One recently was when I told him off for spitting on the pavement. He asked why he couldn't and I said that it spreads germs. He looked at me suspiciously for a moment and then said 'how do the germs get into your feet?' confusedhmm I was genuinely speechless!

My dnnephew ( 3) went past grandparent's sideboard with a whiskey decanter on it and asked my mum "did that used to be full?" :-)

Today via phone:

What did work look like mummy?

Lots of grown ups in a room talking

Hmmm that sounds boring


((Concilatory tone)) but not boring for grown ups just children ok mummy.

My nearly 3 year old has been mispronouncing "peanuts" as "penis" all day

"Daddy eat peanuts? I eat peanuts too....we have a picnic with peanuts? Can't put peanuts in my mouth....peanuts horrible....peanuts taste nice on my tongue"

<<me and DH fall about laughing inconsolably for about half an hour>>

My 3yo DS gave me a little pat and a sympathetic look when we had the 'no mummy doesn't have a willy' conversation.

mine (4) is forever asking questions, and often.says 'if you don't know the answer, Google it' shock shock

Dd (3) is also obsessed with willies at the moment. (She has a baby brother and was very surprised the first time she saw his nappy being changed.)

She can't quite believe that every single man has one. We have been through the trouser contents of every man we know and I have assured her that they do all have willies.

"But how do you know mummy - have you seen them?"

Aww bless them! grin thanks for sharing OP flowers

these are so cute

my ds(4) has a speech delay and struggles with pronunciation. we were talking today about santa and how santa can get any toy you ask for. ds1 (8) is a bit hmm about this (starting to doubt) and said "so how come santa doesn't make toys for mums and dads?" and before I could answer ds2(4) replied "he does- he makes them in his fucktree (factory)" I could hardly contain the giggles and ds1 ended up getting pissed off and leaving me to laugh it out on my own. grin

I'll never forget the utter smartarse logic of a friend's three year old years ago:

Mum- "Cut that out!"

Little Madam- "I can't cut it out, I haven't got a pair of scissors!"

I sometimes wonder what became of them when she got to her teenage years...

When my newphew was about 4 he come to our house and told us he had been to London and seen the Wally. Could not work out what he meant till his dad had told us he meant the gherkin. He still says silly things now and his 11.

TerraNotSoFirma Fri 08-Nov-13 00:39:49

Aww that is cute.

We are potty training DS at the moment, He passed by the open loo door as I was having a pee today then popped his head back around the door, pointed at me and said ''member tuck your willy down mama''

Thanks son, I'll remember that. smile

Fil: "stop that right now or I will take my belt off"
Dp (aged 4): "no you won't cos your trousers will fall down"

Mil loves telling that story grin

YoureBeingASillyBilly Fri 08-Nov-13 01:02:49

grin beastly!

when we were small my dad used to joke that he's take his slipper to us (he never did). one day when my dcs were getting carried away with their game my dad said "right, that's enough i'm taking the slipper to you two" and my ds2 responded, without even taking his eyes off the game "I have spiderman slippers" as if this was just a conversation they were having about slippers. the 'threat' (totally pretend) went completely over his head. grin

One of my Dad's favourite stories about me is he and mum let me stay up late when I was about 3 and they were having a cocktail party. Dad was in foreign affairs, lots of diplomat types and workmates there. I knocked over a glass of wine, dad scolded me and I yelled at the top of my voice "don't hit me again, daddy!!"
He had never hit me in his life, but got a fair few evils that night grin
