Following on from the funny vids that Didge sometimes posts, where kids innocently say funny things, do you have any anecdotes from the kids in your own family?

I will start...

My grandson from being tiny always loved fruit. I always have a full fruit bowl, and as soon as he toddled in he would head for it and pick a piece of fruit to eat.
One day I looked in the bowl and there was a pear with a bite taken out and he was eating another one....so I held the discarded one up and said to him "What's this then?"
From then on he always called a pear a 'whatsthisthen' fruit.

Also, same grandson, couldn't say grandad when he was little, it was always grandang......he still refers to him as that, even writes it on the cards he sends, and he is now 23. Laughing

My grandson approached me and asked, Why are peas so holy around Christmas time?

I responded, I didn't know that they were...where did you get that idea?

He said, Well, the song says we hafta "sleep in heavenly peas".

When my stepdaughter had to write her letter of support for my visa application, she sat down with her pen and paper, looked at me and said, "My brain is just a loading screen right now. Just a little circle spinning round and round."

I record in my notebook, funny things my kids say.

Here’s one I’ll share with you, my daughter was about six years old:

Jas: There’s a boy called Fred in my class and he’s really ugly. I’m serious.

Me: You know, it’s not really nice to call people ugly.

Jas: Well he is! I’m not lying! He looks like an old man with a crooked nose and that’s ugly fam.

I shoot her a look.

Jas: He should work in Santa’s grotto as an elf....

I shoot her a second look and this one is loaded with menace.

Jas: Well, anyway, I wouldn’t marry him if he was the last man on the planet!

Me: Fred may well grow up to be the most handsome man you’ve ever seen.

Jas: Well I still wouldn’t marry him....know why? He sounds like a girl when he talks and if I wanted to marry a man with a woman’s voice I’d just marry a woman!

Years ago my best friends daughter Charlotte, could not pronounce the name Phil and it came out as Fool when she was 2 years old

It was so funny and it stuck for many years, that she came to believe this was my name

Nobody had the heart to correct her, but she was not wrong  Laughing Laughing

My late wife once found the entire bathroom floor covered in a totally unrolled roll of lavatory paper and asked her angrily why she had done it.

"Because its holy poo paper," my grand daughter replied innocently.

"Holy? How to you know it's holy?" my wife asked her, puzzled.

"Well I've just checked and every one has Jesus' name written on it."

(Just in case no-one here is old enough to remember, every sheet of Jeyes rather harsh and uncomfortable bog paper once had the company logo printed on it.)

My daughter and I were watching a film together, she said she was thirsty and picked up her water.
I said to her “Come on hurry up!”

She replies  “Okay! Let me just flush my gum sockets with water!”

I love that girl so much; it was such an unexpected thing for me to fall for her as a parent the way I fell for eddie as a husband. And she definitely has her mother's unique, off-kilter way of seeing the world -- the result of having a clever and free mind in both cases.

That's a lovely thing to feel.

It's easy to love your own kids, it's the most normal and natural feeling in the world.
But I think you can actually fall in love with kids that are not biologically yours, and that can come unexpectedly like you say.

They do have a very lovely friendship and an odd “inside joke thing” that is utterly theirs.

I don't talk about my stepson much -- he's 19 and I'll never have a parental relationship to him, I'm more like a fun uncle I think -- but I think the world of him as well, and really do love him in a different way. Eddie's done such a fantastic job with those kids, really there's no way to say enough about it.

I fell for her first, and then I met her kids and her friends and fit in with all of them so quickly. It was like being air-dropped into the middle of a full, rich life that I would have made for myself if I could have, but instead, somebody else just arranged it all for me. It's weird how not-weird it is.

My grandson has a half brother, no relation to me at all.....I love him as if he was my own, and we, like Ben and your daughter, have a unique relationship.

I often get Facebook memories and here’s one I posted of daughter, when she had just turned five:


My daughter complained that her TV programme was finished just as I switched on the TV
"I only watched a mint of it!" She said
"A mint? Do you mean a minute?"
"No I mean a mint"
"Well babe, that doesn't even make sense!" I laugh
"Well yes...it does...cos it only takes a second to eat a mint!"



Have I been living with her for too long or does that actually make sense?

I knew what she meant as soon as you said it. A mint is something shorter than a minute. God mom, we have to pull you along all the way.

When we where on a drive to flamingo land many years ago with my family.We  traveled south from Scotland and through "The Borders"......

(For our American friends The Scottish Borders or Simply "the Borders" is one of 32 council areas of Scotland. It borders the City of Edinburgh, Dumfries and Galloway, East Lothian, Midlothian, South Lanarkshire, West Lothian and, to the south-west, south and east, the English counties of Cumbria and Northumberland.)

On long trips we Ok i like to talk about the history of the places we pass through(among other things )

We had just crossed in to "the borders " and i asked my then 8 year old Daughter "do you know where the borders are"?  quick as a flash she replied "around the edges" i did not stop laughing for a good 20 miles


On another occasion We where talking about the games we like ,i was telling her i like snooker
She asked is that the one with a stick?

cue!!  sweetheart i replied yes ...you know what is called surely ,i thought that was poker she said

Poker No that's with cards....poker ? why did you think it was called poker


Because you poke balls with a stick ...i swear to "imaginary sky fairy" i nearly pee'd my self

To this day (and she is now 30) this still makes both of us laugh ...i am laughing now just typing it

Some really funny stories on here. cheers

I know this is a news based forum, but the more lighthearted personal threads make it a warm place to post imo.
Thank you. Cool

"Because its holy poo paper," my grand daughter replied innocently.

"Holy? How to you know it's holy?" my wife asked her, puzzled.

"Well I've just checked and every one has Jesus' name written on it."

(Just in case no-one here is old enough to remember, every sheet of Jeyes rather harsh and uncomfortable bog paper once had the company logo printed on it.)
Jeyes Oooooooo what was the other one ? Itzal or something like that ? yes i remember.......i swear my bum has muscle memory just thinking about it to this day.

That's a lovely thing to feel.

It's easy to love your own kids, it's the most normal and natural feeling in the world.
But I think you can actually fall in love with kids that are not biologically yours, and that can come unexpectedly like you say.
Yup,defiantly No problem i love my best friends daughters like they where almost my own ,they grew up to be smart,caring and just plane '''''well i love them

Small kids are innately funny cos they are so honest and direct, no filters whatsoever. flower

It's not a cute trait in adults tho. No matter what anyone says.

Stuff that's been said cannot be unsaid.

Youngster once told me he thought ''skyscraper'' meant planes (cos of the fluffy trail of white clouds they leave in their wake as they travel across a clear blue sky). He took quite some convincing to accept that the word simply meant tall buildings.


Another time, he screamed when a woman with a huge facial birthmark joined a shop queue behind us. "mummy, she's going to get us, she's going to get us" he wailed  - in the same manner kids are threatened that "the bogeyman is gonna get you if you misbehave". Everyone in the shop could hear him. That poor, poor woman, she was just minding her business. I didn't know where to look.


Another time when he was about 2, he went right up to a woman enjoying a coffee & some cupcakes at a cafeteria and started playing with one of the cakes. Shocked  Wanted the ground to swallow me right there. That kid was born to embarrass me!!!  I grabbed his hand & legged it out of the store before she could recover from her shock.


He always said pacific instead of specific. "which one do you prefer, be more pacific, make up your mind" he'd say to his playmates. They understood him cos they talked the same daft way themselves!



He's a grown man now of course. Good as gold, these days - well, mostly.
He remembers very little of the embarassing episodes he put me thru.  lol!

Lol....I still cringe at a few things my own son and grandson did when they was little.

Once whilst being served at an open air newsagents, small son was hanging onto my legs, and unbeknown to me he had lifted my floaty summer skirt right up at the back, much to the amusement of the people waiting in the queue behind me.

Another time whilst out walking, a female dwarf was walking towards us and as she drew level my grandson said..."Oooh look at this little lady Nana", She heard him and just smiled.

I don’t know...I trust people who have no filters more so than anyone else.
They always tell their truth.

Getting ready to brush my teeth with the kiddo the other day. I put the paste on my brush and say, "Wow, my toothpaste is all stripey!"

My 9-year-old stepdaughter laughs and says, "You're like a child."

So my daughter brings home some old schoolwork and as I’m going through it, I see a little section where she describes herself, likes and dislikes, and the last question:

“Write an interesting fact about yourself!”

My crazy daughter writes:
“I’m half Scottish”


She isn’t. Fucking weirdo.

Probably, the teacher is a Scot. She knows how to manage herself. Twisted Evil

Kudos for taking an interest in your daughter's homework. Most people don't want to get involved.

It made me laugh that Eddie's daughter said that, it's so random. Razz

I doubt whether she said it because the teacher is possibly Scottish ....she doesn't sound like the kind of kid to curry favour like that.

I don't know if it's considered "currying favor". It doesn't cost anything, and it's just making someone else feel good about himself. It's smart. Twisted Evil

No she isn’t that sort of kid. In fact her teacher at the time was Irish.
She’s just weird.

Another memory popped up about my daughter, she was about three at the time:

“Mummy I want cereal!"

"Erm yes....What's the magic word?"

"Ooooh! I just want my cereal!!"

"Erm excuse me madam, where are your kind words?"

"Ohhhhhh! I left them in my bedroom and I can't be bothered to go and get them!"
