I really hesitated on including this because it is a little more ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things’ then I can take…but actually this stuff is just fricking funny and if you send me yours I’d love to post them. This stuff cracks me up, end of story.
Jasmine at 3 told me she can “count backwards” and did so by taking a few steps towards me.. “1, 2, 3, 4, 5.” and then walking back away from me,”1, 2, 3, 4, 5.” and she was completely serious.
The Scene: Me making dinner turned away from the couch area in our house where Jasmine is lying with Dylan eating a bowl of carrots (Dylan is 6 months at the time).
Me (more experienced parent now, not even turning from the stove):
OK, but don’t put a bowl on his head Jas.
Jasmine: Oh, oops…heh.
The other night going to bed she took my head in her hands and said: ”You, are beautiful…in my eyes…”
I said thank you.
At 3 Jasmine was telling me that she and her friend saw a dead mouse (I was not there)…I said, “oh my, you saw a dead mouse?”
“Yes,” and she added solemnly. ”And the flies were kissing it goodbye.”
Dylan told me he does not want to get married. I told him married is good, but fine.
He said: ”No, if I see a beautiful girl I say ‘nice dress, goodbye.’
Dylan: Love cannot win over blasters! (in reference to the idea that ‘love conquers all.’)
