I had my 2 year old niece, Alison, at my house for about an hour the other day. I was babysitting – with the help of my 12 year old daughter. Why did I need help? Because Alison is fast! That kid could get into a room, find something to grab and be gone in an instant. So, I had my daughter on “shadow” duty.

Alison had gotten into the nativity scene, which by the way is the most religious thing in our house.

As Alison's father was walking in the door to pick her up, I, just so happened to be running through, yelling, “I found Jesus!"
My brother-in-law thought that I'd had some religious awakening. "Huh?"
"No, I literally found Jesus," I said holding out my hand.

People are always saying, “Kids says darnedest things.” Well, I think that they also make adults say some wacky things.
Parents, think about it. How many times have you said something to your child that you never thought you would have to say?
For example:
-No, that’s not a sandbox! That’s where the kitty poops.
-Why did you write “Joe” across your little sister’s forehead IN PERMANENT MARKER!

I would love hear some your funny kid stories.


  1. Just found your blog and love it!

    My son just had his 2nd birthday yesterday and my hubby and I laugh all the time because he refers to his goldfish as "boobies". When he was younger he couldn't say it well and it kind of stuck. Well, the two of them (husband and son) were at Target and apparently Evan saw the goldfish on the conveyor belt and started screaming "boobies" in an excited voice and pointing. It appeared he was pointing towards the young woman cashier and my husband was mortified! He's done this to me several times as well! We try to make sure to say in loud voices "no, you can't have any GOLDFISH right now". I'm pretty sure people just think we're insane.

    Very cute post!
