What They Say



Don’t you find that kids say the cutest things?  Sometimes it’s all I could do not to go bwahahaha in their faces at the stuff that they say.  Sometimes they sound like they’re 62 years old.  Sometimes I just marvel at their logic.  Sometimes I just pull them in and give them a big squeeze and bury my face in their sweaty sweet-smelling hair to hide my amusement.  {If Zoë so much as suspects that I’m laughing at her, she would look at me sternly and demand that I not laugh --“That’s not funny, Mommy!”}

Josh-Phone
Josh:
I wish I lived in the olden times.
Because then I won’t have to learn so much history!
{Mind you, Josh doesn’t even have History as a subject in school yet!}

Zoë cheering Josh on while he was playing Wii:
I’m going to keep my hands crossed for you, KoKo.

How Zoë says / used to say them:
Cityplaza = Sillyplaza 
Pumpkin = Pungkin 
Oatmeal = Oatmilk
Cupcake = Popcake

Zoë on why I need to give her some ice cream:
The sun is shining on my hair.

Josh-Sockless

Josh, on why he “needs” to eat some chips:
I’ve already had healthy food three days in a row!

I'm always laughing at what my kids say too. Just now my daughter yelled out "Another shower?? Why do I need to take another shower I just took one two days in a row?". Love your pics today. Your daughter is so beautiful. Looks like she loves to dance at all times.

Josh is pretty smart!! I never thought of it that way before! Zoe is too, too, too cute!! Love that 4th picture of her.

grace said...

I think I'll use Josh's excuse when I want to eat ice cream instead of dinner.
Every fourth day I'll eat ice cream since I've been eating healthy foods for the three. :)

I'm Genny... said...

Precious, precious!!! I love the olden times comment, and the sunshine one too. These are priceless; it's so wonderful that you've captured them, and with such beautiful photos too!

Hugs!

Michelle said...

Love little kid speak...it is something I really miss now that my girls are older.

GrammyMouseTails said...

it is hard to argue with their logic, after 3 days of healthy food he could perish LOL. I had trouble saying pumpkin ( still do) and shoulder.

Elle Bee said...

Oh these are so sweet! I love that Josh wants to live in olden times - that's so brilliant! haha!

Marvett Smith said...

Your photos are so full of light and perfect!!!! Kids say adorable things and absorb so much in such little time. It's amazing!

Hilarious!! I love the excuse for some chips, that's a pretty good defense, mom (-:

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

Beautiful captures and the words made me smile big! I used to work in a nursery school and could fill a book with what comes out of the little ones! Adorable.

Erika B said...

Those are some really clever comments! Love the shots of your twirling girl.

ha ha - your son and my son have the same reasoning!!

i.ikeda said...

I'm smiling form ear to ear over here. Your kids are adorable (and you know just how to take photographs of them to melt our hearts). Love the reasoning on food. After all, I'm sure they were right - the sun must have been shining on her hair, and three days of healthy food? The boy deserved some change. :)

My little one comes out with some gems once in a while. I was putting her hair up and she said "I look so pretty" to which I responded with "yes, yes you do." She looked at me with my hair down and said "you don't look so pretty mama." Hahaha, thanks for the honesty kid.

Dumb Mom said...

#2 hates when I laugh too. But, he should stop being so funny then!

Casey said...

Adorable!!!

Kristy said...

Love your black and whites!

OrangeHeroMama said...

OH MY GOSH! I am SOOOOOOO glad that i found your blog on the Wordless Wednesday hop. You take such wonderful pictures, and share with your heart. I LOVE IT!!! :)

April said...

Absolutely adorable...I think your kids are smarter than you think! I love what your daughter said about the sun shining on her hair and what your son said about how he's eaten healthy foods three days in a row. See? They're definitely on to something!

Krystal said...

they are so endearing and hilarious! i love the history one, haha!

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

They are so, so beautiful, B'Mama!

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Oh the things they say- so funny. I have started blogging certain things like that too- because I don't want to forget them. Beautiful captures as always- they are so cute.

Michelle @Flying Giggles said...

The pictures are beautiful. It is wonderful to document those little sayings. Lately, Chloe clothes bathing suits, baby soups.

Aunt LoLo said...

Hehe...I LOVE all the pretend words!!! Ming Wai used to call backpacks "packbacks", and it just made me grin.

Caroline (Frogmum) said...

Great thinkers those kiddos of yours :) ~ just LOVE their logic!
The photos are gorgeous too :-)
