my daughter and her neighbour/best friend/surrogate sister running into my house to say the friend's father had hit his thumb with a hammer and (shock and horror) "He used a square word!". I never corrected them as loved thinking of swear words as square ones and others as round/oval etc etc They are both 17 now and said square word for years ......

Turtlesdove- LOL that is soo funny! lol. I have two daughters and am prepared to see what shocking things a boy will bring with my grandson who is one. My SIL cracked me up when he told my daughter when she was pregnant that if the baby is a boy and has a booger wall don't get mad because that's just one of the things boys do lol. I will never forgot that memory of my oldest daughter's first pregnancy, my first grandchild in the womb, daddy's little lecture lol. Already a protective daddy :)

my little 3 year old son told me about a few weeks ago, "mama, look!" He pulled the folds on his circumsized wee-wee apart and said, "it's a BOYeee!" I almost died laughing. He more than likely got that from another little boy at daycare, I don't know. Does anyone remember the old show, "kids say the darndest things" with Art Linkletter?
I also wanted to share what a big boy my grandson feels since he turned 1. He was given a sippy cup as one of his gifts, he has some already but this one was for his birthday. He is still on bottle but was never one that carried his bottle around only when sleepy, he drinks from it from Mama's arms, but anyhow this cup he carries with him close to his chest full of water and he has that look that says look I am a big boy! I took them out for Brunch Sunday on his birthday and he had that cup with him, he was all bundled up with cup snuggled to his chest lol He is so funny! He rocks my world!

I called to wish my 6 year old niece a happy birthday and find out what she wanted for a gift. She told me that she was tired and asked me to call her tomorrow!
She had already been to school and to cheerleading practice at the local park.

My friend's son was preparing to go to school for the first time so his father asked him what he wanted to learn? The little boy replied, "I want to learn how to make seeds"
To me this felt like a fellow who had real promise for greatness.
Well, after I had my son, my kids' father brought her to the hospital for her to meet her brother. When Kegan was born, he WAS very pink. My kids are biracial. My daughter, Lakeiah, who was a little over than 3.5 at the time, upon meeting her little brother said, "AAw! I love your new white baby, Mommy!" (You can see in my gallery that he definitely is NOT. Hahaha!) Just today, Kegan, who is home a little bit sick with a slight fever and a headcold, was playing down stairs because he didn't want to play alone in his room. I didn't want to make him sit down ALLLL DAY in front of the TV. That's not fair! So, he was pretending the following: foyer was Universal Studios (where we've never been); the living room was the highway; the couch was his house in Rochester; under the table was Canada; the top of the table was Alaska. Later, the foyer was Buffalo and the dining room was Rochester. Creative kid! Hahaha!
My daughter was hoping for a sister when her brother was born. Her disappointment seemed to fade after we brought him home, but about a week later he was crying and as I was trying to sooth him, she came alongside me and said "can we take him back now and get my SISTER?"
They still fight to this day, and they're 25 and 21.

My sister's girls don't watch t.v. so they are always playing their own games either inside or outside and have great imaginations. There are a lot of great stories from them. One was when the oldest was 2 and the youngest was 2 days old. My sister and I were getting things ready for the birthday party (the girls are 2 years & 2 days apart) and we heard our mom in the back yard with the 2 year old. My niece was running around with a stick in her mouth "playing fetch" (she thought she was one of the dogs) and our mom was yelling at her to turn the stick the other way (she originally had one end in her mouth). My sister and I couldn't believe the 2 yr old was doing that AND that our mom was just telling her to turn the stick around, not spit it out! My niece just giggled, turned it around and kept running.
I was just moving out of the house, when my sister had to move in with her son and daughter. Kristopher was about 1 1/2 and cassie was just about 1 month. The Disney's Lion King had just come out so Dad got the DVD. We knew that Kristopher loved music as he would help Mommy sing to the radio and sit near her when she would play the piano. We popped the movie in knowing that Kris wouldn't sit still to watch, but it was good background noise to his playing and the images would help to keep him entertained. Unbeknownst at the time, the Lion King became his favorite movie and he would ask for Simba all the time. Of course it got to the point where the adults in the house could repeat the movie word for word. However the funniest part is when the score at the beginning of the movie would play. here is the little cutie with diaper but bouncing to the score on his little legs. The score would end and he would turn away from the TV and continue to play. The next song would come on and once again this little peanut would be bouncing on his legs in front of the TV and in some cases singing along. It was just so cute.

this is not a story, but something my little 3 year old son said a couple of weeks ago. He said, "mama? Do you want some milk?" I replied, "no, honey, I don't", He said again, "mama? Do you want some milk?" In a much more stern voice this time. I said "ok, yes honey, I want some milk" He said, "well go in the kitchen and GET it!"
My grandson turned one on Sunday, but his party was on Saturday. I bought him the Batmobile scooter car that also turns into a race track. My daughter says he loves it so much that he has to sleep with it lol. This isn't some little car, this is something he sits on and scoots along. I keep chuckling imagining him falling asleep with his huge car and his Mama going in to sneak it out after he is asleep lol..Please share your funny stories.
