Oh The Things They’ll Say

The living situation Sophia dreamed up while driving home as told through MS Paint

The living situation Sophia dreamed up while driving home as told through MS Paint.

Everybody knows that kids come up with some of the most insane things to say. The way their minds work is astounding. I mean, I say some ridiculous things, but the stuff that comes out of their mouths is pure gold. Gold, I tell ya!

Well, Sophia had quite the observation while I drove her home from daycare a couple of weeks ago. You can see the AMAZING illustration I made of said observation on the right there. Below is what she said, word-for-word.

Sophia: that’s my house (pointing to a giant house that isn’t ours)!

Me: Oh is it??

Sophia: Yeah. I live there. With Maddie. And Mommy. And Dubsy. Not you.

Me: I don’t live with you??

Sophia: No, you live there (points to a much smaller house down the road) with a dolphin.

Me: I live with a dolphin???!?

Sophia: Yes, you live with the dolphin and swim with him.

Oh the things toddlers come up with… She later decided I’m allowed to live with her.

I’m going to be writing and documenting more of the insane stuff that comes out of Sophia’s mouth, and hopefully I’ll be able to do the same once Maddie starts talking, too.

Let me know the ridonculous things that your kids have said below! Or on Facebook or Twitter!

Do You Wanna Play Repeat? No, Do YOU Wanna Play Repeat…?

What’ did you just say? Oh, well let me repeat that…

There comes a point in time when you have kids that you realize it’s time for you to really watch what you say. That point is NOW. When they say that kids are like a sponge and they soak up everything you say or do, they are correct (whoever “they” are, anyway). Having to watch what I say probably isn’t going to be an easy thing for me to do. I’m not gonna lie and say I don’t have a potty mouth. I do. Do I like the fact that I do? No, of course not. It’s a habit I’ve been trying to kick for a long time.  Continue reading

Words, Words, Words

“Do you understand the words that are coming outta my mouth?!” — Chris Tucker in Rush Hour

Learning to talk is a big deal. Heck, I’m 30 and I barely have a handle on the English

language when I speak (and write…). So, needless to say, witnessing and helping Sophia learn to talk has been fun, awesome, entertaining, and sometimes, downright hilarious.
