Kids Say the Darndest Things

We are sitting at a stoplight when Charlie notices a Napa van next to us.

Charlie: Hey! That car is wearing a hat!!


Liv: Gammy, sing another song.

Gammy: *thinking*

Charlie: Sing the knock, knock song!

Gammy:  I don't know that song.

Charlie: Yes you do. Knock, knock!

Gammy: Like a Knock, Knock joke?

Charlie: Yeah!

Gammy:  Ok. Knock, Knock!

Charlie: Come on in!


Charlie: I'm sad.

Eli: Why?

Charlie: The worm died.

Me: How?

Charlie: Like this! *closes eyes and drops head to the side.*


As a family we sometimes play a little game in which we call each other silly names like "marshmallow cheeks," or "nose gobbler". Tonight Charlie called me "busted trash." Best. Ever.


Livy saw a picture of Grammy on MooMoo's phone. This happened:

Livy: Hey Moo Moo! That's Gwammy.

MooMoo: Yep, that's Gwammy!

L: Moo, it's "Ga-WA-mee".

M: That's what I said. Gwammy.

L: You not sayin' it wite.

M: I said it just like you.

L: No, you said it wong. It's GA-WHAAA-MEEE.

M: GRRRRRaaaammmeeee.

L: You got it.

M: My bad. Thanks, Liv.


Jack: Da da da da da

Wendy: Da da da da da

Luke: Da da da da da

Jack: Ma ma ma ma ma


Charlie likes me to sing "Henry the 8th" with him every night when I tuck him in. It's cute. Tonight he decided we should change the words.

Me: I'm Henery the 8th I am!

Charlie: No, not that one! Sing Tinky Ducks! I'm Tinky Ducks! *giggle*

Both: I'm Tinky Ducks the 8th I am! Tinky Ducks the 8th I am, I am. I got married to the widow next door. She's been married 7 times before, and every one was a Tinky Ducks. She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam. No Sam! I'm her 8th old man I'm Tinky Ducks. Tinky Ducks the 8th I am!


At breakfast:

Liv: Good Afternoon, Mommy.

Me: It's the morning Liv.

L: Huh?

M: It's the morning, not the afternoon.

Charlie: Good After Morning, Mommy!

M: Good After Morning, Charlie. :)
