The wisdom of 5 year olds…
Many many classic quotes from my 3 year old including (having just eaten a chocolate finger) “Daddy, can I have another chocolate thumb”.
Also, when he was younger, he could quite say the word “rocket”, so, when walking through the Early Learning Centre in Merry Hill he pointed at the toy rockets and shouted at the top of his voice “F*cket”Posted 7 years agoJackass123456789Member
I went to leave for work this week and my 20 month old said to me ‘bye bye daddy’ followed with ‘miss you’ – nearly started to well up there and then on the spot!!
If I pass wind she looks at me and says ‘silly daddy’.
It’s the looks she gives though, if looks could kill when she is asked to do something she doesn’t want to we’d all be dead!!!Posted 7 years agoTimPMember
My 11 month old isn’t talking yet but she did very kindly put MrsP’s mobile down the hole into the bass speaker for the surround sound thingy last night. It is a bit like a lobster pot so after an hour trying to get it out with tongs and various other kitchen implements through the hole in teh front through which it entered we had to admit defeat. Had to take the back off and the cut open the internal box and will have to mend the big hole with some ply this weekend.
She wasn’t the most popular housemate last night…Posted 7 years agoroadie_in_denialMember
I am happily without kids (or girlfriend come to think of it…) but at an XC running race a couple of years back a five year old girl started talking to me whilst I was looking at the course information board:
“Are you doing the senior race?”
A glance at her mother “Yes…”
“Oh good. My Daddy’s doing the senior race.”
Time to cut away methinks “Really?”
“Yes, and then he’s going to have a mid-life crisis.”
Cue hysterical laughter on my part and a look of complete terror on her mother’s face.Posted 7 years agofirestarterSubscriber
Other day my four year old while watching balamory saw the girl in the wheelchair and said why can’t she walk is it cos she’s fat ? While I worked out how best to explain she said oh it can’t be that cos rose the cook at nursey is really fat and she can walk. The girl on tv must be fat and lazyPosted 7 years agoneilc1881Subscriber
On priming our 3 year old for her Christmas present…
Me – “What do you think of these Guinea Pigs?”
Her – “They are silly, stupid and they don’t do anything but just sit there and do nothing.”
Me – “Oh…”
Going to be an interesting morning in a couple of days, anyone want a Guinea Pig and homemade hutch? Can I put it in the ‘for sale’ forum, I see there are a few pigs for sale in there.
And finally, she’s recently started shouting “Cock” at the top of her voice, before a long pause and “-a-doodle-do” much to the relief of everyone present.
After a fancy dress party where a guest came as a Minstrel, she became obsessed with them. On entering Costco a few days later down in Cardiff she blurts out “Look another minstrel!” There was no explaining that one.Posted 7 years agocrotchrocketMember
After watching Avatar my son casually remarked “Americans are such ****”.
Devastatingly accurate character assessment based on the films content, which holds for many of the US population if not all. I didn’t reprimand him on the use of the **** but did point out that it was basically a reworking of the Pocahontas story which, by his definition, made us the ****.
Edit: I should point out that my son isn’t 5. He’s 12. And I have tried to prevent his swearing in the house but his mother has a terrible case of toilet mouthPosted 7 years agosam_underhillSubscriber
Our friend’s little girl (2.5 year old) came running into the room and showed us a dance she’d seen on the telly. The words to this dance were (and it took us all days to work this out), “crunch”, “crunch”, “crunch”. it turns out “cr” comes out more like “c” and “ch” comes out more like “t”. We didn’t stop laughing for hours!Posted 7 years ago
