When my granddaughter was 3 and saw my dentures in the cup she started trying to pull hers out so she could put them in there too.

When my oldest grandson was starting to get "housebroken" I would put him on the potty and when he was successful I would say; "What a big boy Joshua. You went to the bathroom just like a big boy." Well, Josh walked into the bathroom one day while I was going and said; What a big boy grama. You're a big boy." He is 21 now and he hates it when I tell that story.

When my 12yo daughter was about 3, I made some chicken teriyaki- and it had sesame seeds in it. My daughter looked at it and said "Hey, this has hamburger seeds in it!"

I guess the only time she had seem them were on top of her hamburger buns.

LOL, This thread is fantastic

My daughter was just learning how to speak well when I began trying to teach her what her name was, what mom's name was etc. I wanted her to be able to give a police officer some type of information should she ever become lost. My husband thought I was silly, but I was sure this was the way to go. BTW she was my first child, but my husband had child raising experience with his former wife.

I had been working with her for a while when she finally started saying my name. I was thrilled and feeling the pride of accomplishment, immediately wanted her to learn daddy's name. After a bit of coaching, I asked my daughter her name. She repeated it correctly. I asked her my name and again she replied correctly. Finally I asked her daddy's name. Without missing a beat she proudly stated, "Honey"!

My husband laughed so hard I thought he was gonna choke and I left her alone for a while.....

I can remember when my son was 2 coming into the kitchen where we were having dinner and saying..."I'm stupid with you guys".... trying to sound cool
Don't know what meant exactly...but we still bust a gut when we talk about it.

Default to Vesper

My daughter is 6 and still calls her dad "Honey". When she was learning to talk, she used to say "Papa" which was cute, but I guess she got used to me yelling "Honey!!!" and it stuck. Now that she's in school she refers to him as "my dad" when she talks about him, but at home he's still Honey.

I wanted to hide, but there was not where to run, luckily they didnt turn around and we had a long conversation on the way home.
I did something very similar to my mom when I was that age. I was in a supermarket line behind a very large woman. I asked her "Mommy, why is that lady so fat?." She ignored me out of embarrasment, so I grabbed her chin and said it louder a couple of times. Eventually the woman left and I don't think I ever got my answer.

Hi all,

I have a new gem

My 6 yr old son came tip-toeing into my room this morning. I cracked open an eye and asked him what he was doing, he replied sneaking....

I asked him why he was sneaking and he replied, " I have come to steal your energy, it's all sparkley and I want it."

I just stared at him a minute, what do you say to a comment like that....

My 7 year old at the time was at church. The minister was talking about being baptized. He always had the young kids come up to talk with them before they went to Sunday School. Well we live in a very small village and that day my daughter was the only kid in church so she was the only kid up there talking to the minister in front of all the people.

He was asking about if she had ever been baptized and different ways to get baptized. He said that some have even been baptized in rivers.

So my kid with all of her class and grace said.... "WITH FISH p**p".
Everyone couldn't stop laughing and he let her go off to Sunday School.

On the first day of second grade the teacher was doing roll call. When she called my son Jack's name, Jack stood up and said "Don't call me Jack - call me Jackass." He was sent to the principal's office and I was called. I had to pretend to be horrified that these bad words would come out of my little angel's mouth! So when I picked him up from school we high fived each other and I told him it's okay to call himself a Jackass at home but not at school.
