Can I tell you how long I’ve waited to be able to write this post? Before I even had kids some of my favorite blog posts to read were ridiculous things kids say. I remember when I came out for church in a green skirt and purple shirt and 1 year old Lincoln looked at me and said “Barney!” and I thought, “Oh I should write that down.” I didn’t. And so I’ve forgotten a lot of the funny things these two have said over the last few years but I’m excited to start recording them more regularly. Kids really are the best 🙂
When talking to aunt Maddie back when he was three:
Lincoln: I’m NOT so cute! …..but I sure am 🙂
I asked Lincoln to go ask Ben to take out the trash in October and I hear this from the other room:
Lincoln: Daddy, stop being a punk. You need to take the trash out RIGHT NOW.
Ben: *mutters something to Lincoln
Lincoln: Mom, daddy is being a punk. He told ME to take the trash out.
Sitting in the kitchen talking to me during snack time:
Lincoln: I want a lot of babies in our families. I want two babies in our family. I want one to be a boy and one to be a girl and one to be a baby.
Me: how will we get these babies?
Lincoln: from your tummy
Me: how will they get in my tummy?
Lincoln: they will grow in your tummy and then they will come out. How will they come out?
Me: How do you think they will come out?
Lincoln: From down there!
(where do kids learn this stuff? we’ve since talked about it)
When looking over my outfit for the gym one morning:
Lincoln: Take those clothes off. They look funny.
Me: Why do they look funny?
Lincoln: one of your socks is light blue and one of them is dark blue
While pointing at her face in her crib one evening in December:
Adelaide: I’m mad, look at this face!
(developing her emotional intelligence)
One afternoon in March while chatting with me on the couch:
Adelaide: I love you and you love me all the time. I love you all the way to the dark….and I love Daddy all the way behind my back.
Looking at a magnet of London on our fridge:
Adelaide: Hey look! There’s Big Daddy!
Me: Oh, yes, there is Big Ben.
During dinner one evening in March
Lincoln: But Mom, when I die how will my body get up to heaven? Maybe there will be a conveyor belt like at the airport and it will lead us to an elevator – an elevator straight up to heaven!
Walking past a guy at church with a very long beard
Adelaide: Hey, Mom, why that guy have such a BIG chin?
After coming home from a playdate:
velvet shirt: Crew Cuts (sold out but almost identical one in a summer fabric here)
jean leggings: GAP
button down: Gymboree (from their “going out of business sale”)
shorts: H&M (just ordered these for him for summer)
shoes: Hunter Boots (my kids most worn shoes because they can put them on by themselves)
