Toddler Talk IV

Having a three year old is like having a talking dog. It is just funny. (Heard on the Bob & Tom Show one morning on the radio). I agree, it is.

"I used to be a grandma but now I'm a mom. I was short like a grandma, but then I grew bigger and now I'm a mom. And when I get even bigger, I am going to be a big sister!"

Lola: "I would like to fly an airplane."
Me: "Well, when you get bigger, you could learn how."
Lola: "But I would miss you!"
Me: "But you would come back to me, after you're done flying."
Lola, softly: "But I don't know how to find my home."

Lola: "Remember? When you were a little baby, and I was your mom? Remember?"
Me: "Ummm..."

Lola: "I'm going to draw a picture of papa."
Me: "That's a great idea, he'll love that."
Lola: "But I am not going to give him a pagina." (That is not a typo.)
Me: "Of course not. Boys don't have vaginas."
Lola: "Oh. No, I mean a penis. I don't like penises."

  1. I spoke with Lola on the phone today. Very interesting experience. But don't ask for any clever quotes.

  3. I tried to comment that Fiona asked me if i remember when she was the Mom and I was the kid. She also tells me she's really afraid to go to college because she doesn't know how to take the bus.

  5. I think you should have the penis quote cross-stitched onto a pillow and put it on her bed when she's about sixteen, just as a friendly reminder.

  9. The things that come out of the mouths of babes. I have a four year old niece, and I am always entertained when in the presence of her company.

  12. My Little M is 4 now but the convos are very much the same. I especially love listening to her when she starts talking to herself and forgets that I am there.

  15. I love this. I have an almost 4 year old at home and have a regular post called "the little guy said" on my blog. They say the cutest things.
    My almost 2 year old is now starting to use words and I am going to start adding her toddler ramblings...I just need to come up with a good title.

    Happy SITS day!

  16. LOL! Yes, I love toddlers and listening to what they have to say. She sounds like a riot and reminds me a little of my own little crazy toddlers.
    Happy SITS day!
