Kid Quotes

Some of these are repeats on the blog.

When the kids say something especially kid speak, I try to write it down right away and date it. Time is of the essence because I don't have the password for the area of my brain which stores the quotes. I toss these random bits of paper in my address book. When the stars align right, I write them down in the address book on the blank pages in-between letters.

Samples: October 2002 -- Winnie's song to mommy "I love my mom so much, and that's why I don't give up. But I will go on by myself if she be's mean to me...and she knows everything dooooo"

August 17, 2004 -- Lizzie wanted to tell me one of my painted things was beautiful, she said it was "cute-able."

When I was buckling Lizzie in her seat to leave the park she sniffed my arm and said, "Mom, you smell grassous."

Dec 2004 -- Lizzie says "celle phone" for cell phone (sounds like cellophane)

July 31, 2004 -- Winnie "Will I still be a kid when I go to school?"

Sept. 2004 -- Both girls say "hot llama" instead of "hot lava"

a kind of scarred Lizzie waking up with an asleep hand, "My hand is fizzy."

Middle of the night potty trip conversation: Lizzie, "Do you know what it feels like to have my head on your lap when I go potty?"

"No. What's it like?"

"It feels nice. It feels like life."

January 2005 -- someone has been sick since Thanksgiving so we have been laying low as a family. Winnie said, "I miss the good old days." I ask why, to which she said, "When we used to go to the library and go out."

Sept. 2004 -- Winnie, making Barbie talk -- very dramatic and breathy, "If my baby dies and goes to heaven...uh! (and other dramatic sigh noises) there will be nothing to be betrothen."

Lizzie, "My gum is gone -- I spit it out because it was getting flavor not."

Dec. 29, 2004 Lizzie -- "You said yes?! I rewinded my ears...I thought you said no."

March 26, 2005 A conversation -- Lizzie: "It's a ticket to Derfangus and Derfangus helps people."
Winnie, "Wait a minute...this isn't a Derfangus ticket!"

Feb 7, 2005 Lizzie -- "Mom, do butterflies sneeze?...What about caterpillars?"

May 23, 2006 Lizzie "Mom, there's a sunset when the sun is rising."

Dec. 17, 2006 Lizzie --"Winnie, I know we were made in mom's belly, but sometimes...sometimes do you ever wonder how we got in there?"

May 4, 2003 Winnie "When I was upstairs sleeping, my nose was awake and it smelled chocolate milk."

July 2005 Winnie -- "We keep whacking the baby Jesus on the Hitchcock sign and we keep laughing."

December 2002 -- Mom "Are you making a bubble beard, Lizzie?"
"I'm making a ho ho ho, mama."

This is classic. We're you afraid when they asked this they would ask you?

Lizzie once called her fists, "punchy thingies". Just remembered that and I don't think I wrote it down. She still refers to her elbow as her shoulder -- that's been a thing for her since she learned body parts--oops.

Melissa -- it still hasn't come up, but I totally froze in place when she said that.

Mel -- yes!

ttq -- not far from that tree, indeed.

Kay -- my pleasure, and right backat you with the video!

I can't read that without laughing. So when you see me visiting your site more and more every day, I'm just needing a laugh.

Did you dare ask them WHY the were whacking the baby jesus on the sign?
