Fabulous quotes from my friends’ children

- Tursiops truncatus A dolphin surfs the wake ...

Come on! I know you’re hungry! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

While watching a nature video, my two-year-old daughter began offering a goldfish cracker to a hunting dolphin and was very annoyed at getting no response.

“Num num! NUM NUM!!!”

Still nothing.

Me: Why are you mad at him?
Six-year-old boy: Because he hit me in the BACK!
Three-year-old boy: No! I did NOT hit him in the back!!
Me: Then why did he say you did?
Three-year-old: (very calmly and reasonably) I did not hit him in the back. I hit him in the frooont.
(Well, then…)

~Annie, mother of 3


My two-year-old daughter, in all sweetness, asked, “Precious, you get ma blankie, peas?”

“Haha! What?! Did you just call me ‘Precious’?” I exclaimed.

My daughter paused to think for a moment then said, “GIRL! You get ma blankie!!”

And now a little gem from yours truly. My husband suggested it might be time to trade in our old car for a newer, better one. I countered by pointing out that if we did that, how would we listen to our cassette tapes?
