the things children say


If you have children you know that they can say the funniest things.
Some of our funniest conversations happen around our dinner table.

Here is one of my favourites:

So we are all sitting at the dinner table eating our meal when out of nowhere one of my cherubs says,
"Mum, you bought me at the shops, didn't you?"

I turn to look at this child surprised because surely we have talked about this topic before. I reply,
"No, I did not buy you at the shops. If only it was that easy!"

My cherub then says,
"Well, where did you get me from then?"

All eyes are then on me. The older cherubs smile to themselves, the younger cherubs look to me for answers and Matt keeps eating his dinner.

I am thinking, we are at the dinner table, let's make this brief and I will have a better chat to him later. 
I reply, "You grew in my tummy and when you were big enough you came out"

Everyone continue's eating and I look over to see my questioning cherub deep in thought.
My cherub then asks me, "Did you buy anyone else at the shops?"

I reply, "No, I did not buy anyone at the shops. Every one of you grew in my tummy. 
I even had two of you growing in my tummy at the same time."

My cherub looks at me and says, "Is there another baby growing in your tummy?"

I reply, "No, there are no more babies growing in my tummy. I have finished growing babies in my tummy."

My cherub then looks at me. Frowns, and then asks me,
"Well, who is in your boobs then?

Ummm...Yeah! What the?!?
Hahahaha! The things children say.

Let's move on to the next dinner time topic shall we!

  2. Who is in your boobs!?!?!? LOL!!!!! That is classic GOLD!

    My son, 3.5 y.o, was apparently upset yesterday afternoon because he didn't want to get married. At dinner I said, "Nick you don't want to get married?" Him: "No" (arms folded, head down, pouting). Me: "Why not?" Him: *sigh* "Because, I don't have a dress." Well, everyone knows you can't get married without a dress!!

  3. What would we do without kids? They are so fantastically humbling and real and hilarious and just plain awesome! THIS is why I love blogging--because I would never remember all the classic things my kiddos say. Think of all the laughs when they're older with babies of their own, sharing these kinds of stories! Love it. Oh, and there's NOTHING fun about big boobs. Nothing:).

  7. I'm sure that anyone in a 500m radius would be looking at our house at the moment because there was a huge guffaw of laughter springing from one of the downstairs rooms just 5 seconds ago!

    This is fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!
    Thank you and your cherub for the gift of laughter to begin my week.

    Happy day!

  16. That is pure gold Naomi!!! I am so glad you shared that with us. It put a smile on my dial. Because I have had to have c-sections, my kids went for years thinking that all babies just got cut out.... You should have heard the conversation when they found out where my best friend's baby came out. Hilarious!!! xox
