Remembering our children’s funny moments! Our children love to look back and laugh at the cute things they said.
(gg stands for graceful girl and bb for brave boy!)
Mom: “What state is New York City in?”
BB age 4: “Which?”
Mom: New York State
Dad: Which State do you think Kansas City is in?
GG age 6: Kansas
Dad: No, actually its in Missouri, next door
GG age 6 (considering): Maybe they ran out of space!
GG age 6 (to Dad during Bible time): Do the Phillistines come from Philadelphia – just like the Babylonians come from Babylon?
GG age 6: Mommy, I’m so used to sleeping that sometimes I don’t expect it to be morning.
GG age 2: What’s that body called, Daddy? (pointing to person on book)
Dad: That body’s called Henry
BB age 3 is full of memorable sayings – here are some of the latest…
– talking about God’s presence during worship time – “I want to open God’s presents.”
– “I like meat! strawberry meat and pineapple meat.”
– “This song makes me funny”
I’m on Daddy’s roof! was BB age 4’s comment on being on Daddy’s shoulders.
Dad to BB age 2: “Come on Munch! (mommy’s nickname for the little ones) BB age 2: “I’m not! Cause you musn’t say that, cause you not a mommy!”
BB age 2: Its not cold, its rainy! (because the weather chart only allows one or the other.)
Mom: “Thank you very much in Afrikaans is baie dankie.” BB age 2: “Buy a donkey – but I’m going to buy an elephant!”
En route to Washington DC (virtual travel) “We are going to Washington ABC, Daddy!”
Then, “Is Washington ABC a teddy bear?”
BB age 2 (looking contemplatively at Mommy): Are you too big to stand on the step? (the small step at the bathroom basin)
Mom: yes, I’m too big!
BB age 2: Then how will you wash your hands?
