The Funny Things That Kids Say

Kids say the funniest things. They are so innocent and have a such a fresh way of viewing the world. Things that have long since become boring and mundane to adults still hold a spark of excitement in the eye of a child and it truly is refreshing to be in the company of children.

My son Caleb who is almost 4 years old has a great sense of humor and he is constantly making us laugh so I thought I would share some of the hilarious and heartwarming things he has said:

  • The Art of Negotiation: Mummy, I can’t eat my carrots because they’re too orange!”
  • Deep Thoughts on Pain: When Caleb had a tummy ache, “Let’s go to the water park so we can wash the hurt away”
  • Questions in Anatomy: Caleb asks, “Mummy, where’s your ‘wee-wee’?” Mummy responds, “I don’t have one”  Caleb says, “Then where does the pee come out?” Blank stare from mummy….
  • Early Signs of Compassion: Caleb sees daddy peeling carrots and shouts, “Stop daddy! You’re hurting the carrots!”
  • Brother-sister love: “My very best friend in the whole wide world is my baby sister”
  • On the Subject of Daddy: “Daddy’s not a boy. Daddy’s not a man. Daddy’s a daddy!”
  • Lessons in Biology: “Granny can’t be a mummy because she doesn’t have any little boys” (in reference to my mother-in-law)
  • A Child’s Simple Trust: “When I’m scared, God will keep me safe like mummy and daddy do”
  • Melt-worthy Material: “I like hugs and kisses!”
  • Logical Thinking: After a particularly rambunctious day and the house in a complete mess, mummy says, “You kids have turned the house upside-down!” Caleb responds, “That’s not possible, mummy. The floor is too big and it’s stuck to the ground”
  • Culinary Tastes: “Where are my squashed potatoes, mummy?” (Instead of ‘mashed’ potatoes)
  • On the Subject of Father’s Day: “If there’s Father’s Day, is there also Boy’s day?”

Keep smiling!
