Kids Say The Darndest Things – Vol. 2

It’s time for another edition of  “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” where I share some recent humorous remarks the toddlers have said and, hopefully, you will share some of the humorous things your kids have said.

Because the toddlers are trying to figure out how the world works, their funny remarks are usually in the form of an observation or explanation of the world as they see it from their toddler perspective.

Here’s some of their recent observations:

On Getting Dressed:
Me: “Kaleb, you have your shirt on backwards.”
Kaleb: “Do I need to turn my head around?”

We say funny stuff without even knowing it!Me: “No, Cindy is not there because the office is closed.”

On People Having the Same Name:
It was Saturday and we were driving by my office and Kaleb made this observation:
Kaleb: “Is Cindy not there?”
Kaleb: “Is the other Cyndi not there?”
Me: “No, she’s not there either.”
Kaleb: “You have too much Cindies?”
Me: “Yes, sometimes it seems like I do!”

On Trash Talking:
While driving to school one day Kenzie asked me this series of questions:
Kenzie: “Can I say ‘booty’?”
Me: “No!”
Kenzie: “Can I say ‘What the heck’?”
Me: “Certainly not!”
Kenzie: “Can I say ‘Oh, my gosh’?”
Me: “Absolutely not!”
(Of course, she knows she is not supposed to use any of these expressions and asking these questions gave her the opportunity to say the forbidden words.)

On Getting Along With Others:
Kenzie came home from Sunday School bragging about her good behavior:
Kenzie: “I didn’t bite everybody today!”

On Being a Big Brother:
Kaleb: “Being a big brother is a good job!”
