Part of the fun about parenting (there’s got to be some fun right?) are the things that kids say that either confound you or make you laugh. Here’s some stuff that JJ says quite constantly.
- He loves to say prove it in response to just about anything I tell him that he doesn’t believe, for example, ‘Mum, what channel is the tv on at the moment?’
‘Channel 2, the ABC.’
‘Well there’s the ABC symbol in the bottom corner of the screen.’
But of course, it’s not always that easy.
- ‘Mum, why is this finger the rude one?’ as he holds up his index finger.
‘Who told you that?’
‘Everyone in the whole world says it is.’
‘Do you know everyone in the whole world do you?’
‘Well, lots of people say it.’
‘I’m not really sure. Now have you had enough breakfast?’ I deftly change the subject.
- ‘Mum have you got a girlfriend?’
‘Sure, I’ve got lots of girlfriends.’
‘I’ve got a girlfriend.’
- ‘Mum, you’re beautiful, I love you.’ He’s been saying this for a while and this is one thing I don’t want him to stop saying.

What a cutie, these made me chuckle 🙂
We’ve been going through the “why is this finger bad?” thing here too with my five year old.

Okay – I’ll give you the heads up for when he holds up his three middle fingers to you and says, “Read between the lines”. Between the two outer lines is the rude finger! It’s a modern version of the bird.
I once responded to “Why is this finger rude and not that one,” by calmly assuring mister ‘push it to the max’ that it was rude because it was the finger that would do the most damage when I stuck it up his nose!
What a sweetie….and how funny!
Precious…M always says “Mommy, I want to hold you”
Oh Jen….I hope he never stops saying some of those gems.
