So 7 year old dd strutted into the long room and said the following:

'Mum you know I never ever want a boyfriend, I never want to be married and I do not want to have babies so that means I'm gonna live with you forever and ever and ever'.....

Me: 'Oh well that would be lovely sweetheart but you might cha.....'

Dd interrupting me 'but not really forever because you are going to get old and then you will be dead. I'll probably ask Lexie (her cousin) to come live with me then. I'm having your room though'

No words from me to reply. Somehow proud of her forward thinking though hmm

Just realised that wasn't actually a question she asked...still lost for words though lol

My DS once asked me if fish ever get seasick.

"... I remember when I was alive the last time, before I picked you as my mum..."
Said by DS who was about 5 at the time.

So Lexie is staying single forever as well?

DS1 asked me where the poo went when you flush and for some reason my gormless mouth opened and said 'to the poo farm' blush

Emptied dd's blazer pocket couple of weeks ago to wash. She had £2 , she was supposed to pay for something at school.

I asked her how come she still had the money

Oh that's not the money from the books.

Me - ok, where's this money from then?

Awkward silence

Dd- people give me £1 to do some homework for them.😲

Wasn't sure whether to tell her off or tell her she's undercharging. 😂😂

Disclaimer, obviously I told her it had to stop.

My son once asked me if I'd ever had an arm amputated. I was speechless.

My daughter once brought me some mouthwash to open and asked 'how does it know you're an adult'?

Justmuddlingalong whoah dude!

If you need a mummy and a daddy to make a baby then how was the first person born?

DD was 4 and we had just had the baby chat. I said "magic".

I overheard a small boy (about six) on the train asking his mother loudly which was more important weddings or funerals? and to illustrate his point- if he died and his funeral was on the same day as her best friends wedding which would she choose to go to?
the mother was looking rather mortified by this point!

My 3yr old son keeps telling me that when my willy grows back I'll be a boy again like him!

trebless Tue 05-Mar-19 21:56:51

@userschmoozer yes Lexie wants to live one half of the year in an igloo and then the other half in a caravan. So clearly not good for dd and her housing dilemma.....maybe if dd offered her my bedroom, Lexie might change her mind hmmgrin

DS is 2.5 and has just discovered ‘why?’ so a lot of his questions are currently very difficult! A typical conversation goes
‘why the birds gone quiet?’ (The seagulls were making a racket when we went in to the softplay but quiet when we came out)
‘because they are sleeping now’
‘why?’
‘Because it’s dark’
‘Why?’
‘Because it’s evening, the sun has gone away’
‘Why?’
‘Because the sun is hiding behind the earth now so we can’t see it’
‘Why?’
‘This is getting into quite advanced astronomy. Do you want peas or sweet corn with your fishfingers when we get home?’

My autistic 8yo asked ‘What are love triangles?’

After goldfishing at him a bit, I pulled myself together enough to ask where he’d come across the concept.

‘In Shakespeare,’ he said grandly.

There was a schools performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream a year ago. That’s the only thing I could think of.

@Fernicktylo haha! This made me chuckle, I bet a conversation between my dd and this boy would be hilarious/quite disturbing!

My DS is 14 now but I remember the day he was astounded to realise 'see-through' wasn't actually a colour but meant you could, ya know, see through it. He was 12 🙈

My three year old niece when I took her up out of bed in the morning while babysitting-
“Is it tomorrow yet?”

Impossible to answer that one!

I was telling my dd (9) about the birds and the bees. They had all been talking about it at school. I explained to her that sex made babies, she asked 'is it fun?'

QuestionableMouse Tue 05-Mar-19 22:10:16

If he (3yo) could put smarties up his brother's bum (7mo)... I want quite sure what to say to that.

Five year old asked “who digs the people up, when they are ready to be alive again?”

CocoLoco87 Tue 05-Mar-19 22:11:35

DS (4) asked me this morning "why are Santa and the elves real?"... umm because they are? grin

It was honestly one of those moments when I didn't know whether to come clean to him about the whole Santa thing. But we go big in our house with Christmas and I didn't want to take the magic away so soon sad

On the way to nursery a few weeks ago, my 2 year old said.. 'Mummy, why is the moon when it's morning'!
I'm sure I once knew the answer to this, but my answer that day was 'oh yeah, silly moon, must've forgotten it's the suns turn to come out now'.

I'm also pregnant and a lot of people keep talking to him about the baby (much to his annoyance), to which he ignores them... when we are in our own I get asked 'mummy how baby get in your belly' and 'open your belly so I can see what's inside'!

In a childrenswear store, at Christmas. . . and daughter says in her very piercing little voice 'so if Father Christmas isn't true does that mean the tooth fairy is a lie too'. . .

Oh crap. . .
