I have a nephew who is about to turn three who you can see in the picture to the right. My sister-in-law was telling us the other day about a couple of really cute things he said. He was sitting at the table and they were trying to get him to eat some vegetables before he could eat some other things. His response? “Now that’s gonna be a problem.”
They were at the table another time and they were trying to get him to eat something he didn’t like. My sister-in-law left him in the room by himself for a moment and heard him say to himself, “They can’t treat me like this.”
We were all at my parent’s house for Christmas. My nephew loves the Land Before Time (all 46 sequels!). The big green dinosaur is called “Grandpa.” We were trying to get him to learn all of our names because we don’t see each other often. When it came to learn that his grandfather’s name is “grandpa” he got this shocked look on his face and began to shake his head no. I realized my father may have resembled grandpa from the movie just a bit too much with his green sweater on.
What funny things have you heard kids say?
