Kids and the They Say and Do.

13 replies • Last post

Kids say the funniest things and most of the time they are truthful, funny things.

My grandson asked my daughter last week what is the meaning of life? He is 5.

Now she says he is fascinated with the number 100 and I think she said 1000. Why? I am trying to figure out in my mind what is fascinating about the number 100. When he was younger, he thought coupons were money because they had $ signs on some of them.

What are some of the things your kids or grand kids say? They don't have to be younger kids either. Teens and older kids say some funny stuff too.

Great idea for a thread, LM! Smile

Remember that Art Linkletter book, "Kids Say the Darndest Things?" Wasn't that also a TV show for a while? I loved watching him interact with the kids, lol. Anyway, the thread reminds me of that.

Your grandson sounds like a smarty. So cute!

One thing I thought was funny when my boys were little is they always told me to "just write a check." "Can we go to McDonalds, Mom?" "No, I am sorry, because we don't have any money right now." "Well just write a check, Mom!" haha They had no idea. To be that young and innocent.

One of my biggest regrets in life is that I didn't keep a journal since they were born and write down some of the great and funny things they said. You think, at the time, that you will remember forever, and I also thought I would remember WHO said what. No, I think, was it him, him, or him who said that, plus I have forgotten so much! My oldest son has such a great memory for things that happened long ago, so he helps me sometimes, but I did lose so much when it comes to the funny things they said. I will think of more, though. Smile

I have that regret too. We get busy just living life and forget to do those things. I have written down a few things my grandson has said but I don't have anything in an organized place. Our memories fade with time. I feel as you do...we think we will remember but we don't. I wish we would have had digital cameras back then too! I don't have nearly enough photos of my kids.

I remember my daughter asking why we couldn't go the the atm (we called it green machine) to get money when I told her we didn't have the money to buy something she wanted. She must have thought we were mean or selfish parents because we went to the atm whenever WE needed money for something. She must have been 9 or 10 at the time.

We have a group of friends who all have kids and 2 or 3 of the little boys have told their parents that they are going to marry my daughter (she is 5). So we asked her who she wanted to marry and she said "Daddy can I marry a girl? Boys are too rough and girls are more fun." Then she named a couple of girls that she wanted to marry.

She has also told us that when she is all grown up we will have to move out of her house!

Apart from that some of the funniest stuff is when she is unconsciously aping or repeating the stuff we say to her. Its hilarious hearing your wife talking to you out of your daughter's mouth.

That is too funny, especially that you will have to move out of her house! My bf and I imitate each other from time to time. It is funny so I can imagine how funny it would be coming out of a child's mouth.

Has your daughter said she wanted to marry you yet? I can remember my son wanted to marry me when he was about five and my daughter wanted to marry her dad. What a great way to say they love you.

Oh yeah she has said she wants to marry me or live with me forever. I told her she can stay as long as she wants as long as she looks after me when I'm an old man!

Good answer! She definitely sounds like she loves her daddy. Smile

My grandson, 5, goes around saying that an hour is 360 seconds and that cartoons are fiction. I wonder where does he hear this stuff or come up with this stuff. I'm glad to know that he knows cartoons are not real.

Haha! That last part is SO funny! When my oldest son was about five year old, he told me he wanted to marry me! lol! Then, in first grade, it was his favorite teacher: he had a really bad crush on her! He also used to say that when he grew up, he was going to "build a house on top of my house." Well, he is still here, so he might as well have done so! lol!

That is too cute! Does he go to daycare or pre-school yet? I know that my oldest son picked up all kinds of things when he started daycare. Then the younger two picked up everything from the oldest, lol!

He's in school. That could be where he is getting it. I don't think they would be teaching him that cartoons are fiction though. He's only 5. They are teaching them about time at that age? I have no idea what they teach in schools now. I remember that I was in 3rd or 4th grade before we taught how to tell time.

I don't think they are teaching that, but I just know that my boys picked up a lot from other children, and the things they heard them say. My son developed a sudden interest in Michael Jackson, at five years old, after attending daycare, lol.

And who knows? The teacher MAY have discussed the difference between fiction and nonfiction in talking about books or anything. Who knows? One thing that IS clear is that your grandson is a smart little guy who is picking things up and learning quickly! That is a GREAT thing. As for your final question, YES, they are teaching things younger and younger. My time in the elementary schools had me absolutely amazed at what they are learning, younger and younger. Kindergarten is no longer just about the "ABCs." lol!

I think he is just smart. My daughter said he is in level 3 reading and that isn't expected until the end of the year. She said he is fascinated with space and time.

Oh, I am sure he IS smart! I am just saying you would not believe the things they teach now, earlier than when we went to school. It amazed me when I was in the schools what they were already teaching in the kindergarten and first grade classrooms! Smile

That is great that she encourages him to follow and build on his interests. Good for her! Smile
