Kids Say the Darndest Things

The kids have been talking like crazy lately. I speak fluent two year old, so I can understand 99.9% of what they are saying. Here are some of the funny things they say lately.

The kids and I go to Wal-Mart every Monday. We usually see the same workers. One lady gives them stickers so she is the "Smiley Guy" when we see her. They start yelling "MORE COOKIES" and "MORE NUTE NACKS" when we walk down those aisle, and they always ask repeatedly if I "Got Juice?". But the funniest Wal-Mart came a couple weeks ago. We had just turned down the canned vegetable aisle, and their was an
older man with a white beard. All three of them starting yelling "HO, HO, HO!", "HO!, HO! HO", "MOMMA, HO!, HO!". Yep, they thought he was Santa. So everytime they saw him, they would yell "Hi there, Ho! Ho!". Thankfully he wasn't offended.

They talk to everyone we see. "Bye, Bye Guy.", is by far our most popular saying. Even if you aren't a "guy", you will be called one. We go to Chick-Fil-A every Friday. They feel a need to tell everybody when we are walking in that we will be "Eat Chicky and fries". They love to point out cows, horses, tractors, planes and "guys" whenever we are in the car. You'll hear "Cow Momma Cow, Mooooo!" If you don't respond very quickly with "Yes (insert child's name here) I see that cow, good job!", you will have a full blown tantrum on your hands. Weirdos! Carter says "mote" for remote and it quite possibly the cutest thing you have ever heard. He drags out the "o" and really likes the "t", too cute! Huddy says "NNNNN" before everything. "nnnnnn outside" "nnnnnn doggy" "nnnnnn ball", you get the picture. Ella repeats everything she hears and now does the facial expressions to match. She is such a ham. Which leads me to my next story.

We were eating dinner last night. Spaghetti and green beans, when all of the sudden Ella says "fork". Now the boys talk all the time at dinner, but Ella is all business and rarely socializes. Well, so she says "fork", but the "or" sounds exactly like "uc". Let it marinate, yeah she said "f*c*". So of course Jake and start laughing histerically. And instead of ignoring it and moving on, what do we do? Get the video camera of course. She then proceeds to say it about forty times with Jake and I laughing our butts off. "Daddy's f***", "Momma's f***", you get the picture. Hopefully, she'll learn to say her "or"s before too long, but in the meantime, it gives us a good laugh at dinner!

Potty Mouth Ella

I remember those days, it is fun to laugh at their cuteness. You made me laugh by saying that Ella doesn't socialize at dinner but down to business. So cute.

I did had to tell that my youngest daughter did this too except that it was our last name. It is Schmidt but when a 3 year old says it it does sound like s**t. Needless to say we have had to go to preschool several times and explain that she is saying her name. In public it is even worse.Lol

Yeah, Ella! Way to keep your momma and daddy on their toes!

My Sister-in-law had me pick up her boys from Daycare awhile back. I had to drive on the highway to bring them to my house. At the time, my nephew was OBSESSED with trucks and pointed out EACH ONE! Only, he couldn't say "Trrrrrr..." and substituted "Ffffff..." Got it? The whole 20 minute ride I heard obscenities spewing from the backseat!

Too funny! Even funnier...HILARIOUS!! Hope she gets it soon!

Barbara Manatee said...

LOL! Gotta love it! My two also want that confirmation that you heard what they said and pointed out...or they just keep saying it over and over, getting louder each time. haha!

Jacob loves 'music' but somehow - not sure how- that word comes out sounding like 'naked' ??? ha!

Maggie said...

My son is also obsessed with trucks and substituted the "tr" for "f" about a year ago. He even said it LOUDLY during church one morning! EEK! Thankfully, he says it right now.
