Readers Respond: Funny Things Your Kids Say and Do

Responses: 6


They shock us. They make us laugh. They give us plenty of material to share with other parents.

The silly things kids come up with are half the fun of raising children. What wacky words or actions have come from your own children's minds?

Funny Boy

One day I was driving my 3-year-old son and newborn son (Brody) to the Dr's for a check-up and my 3-year-old said, "Mom, you need to have another baby." "Why?" I asked. "Because Brody is MY baby."

Peter bread and Thomas

When my son was a toddler, he would ask for "Peter Bread and Thomas," otherwise known as pita bread and hummus.

Too much information

My 4 year old often gets constipated right at dinner time. One time she was bent over in agony complaining that her stomach hurt. Her 7-year old sister went right over and gave her a hug, and said sympathetically, "Is it your uterus?" Hmm.... Did I give too much information in the birds and bees talk?


I went to my daughter's preschool conference and the teacher laughed and said one area of assessment that she failed - she honestly thinks her middle name is Gorgeous (you can thank my husband for that one!)

Overheard a funny conversation

My preschooler told our newborn, "You're a cute baby but you've GOT to stop crying!"

My adorable dare devil

My two year old is (by far) the most active and inventive of my four children... he says and does the most incredible things! Just this morning he got into the cabinet and pulled out a Capri Sun juices box, opened it and took a juice pouch out, he inserted his cheerios between one of his musical toys, he pushed a small chair towards his closet to get a toy from over a shelf.... It drives me nuts... I'm a work from home mom, so it's pretty tough to balance :-D Oh! He also mimicked me scolding his two older sisters... I better watch myself more closely. LOL.
