    It can be FUNNY, CUTE, or that EMBARRASSING comment in the grocery store line. Please give the age of the child for reference.

    I love it when my 2yr old says "tank you, daddy" when I give her milk or something else she asked for.

    After I make her laugh, it makes me smile when she says "silly daddy."

      My 3 year old always asks "Who-body did this?"
      And she ask me "Mom do you know why I miss you?"
      "because I love you!"
      It just makes me want to hug and kiss her all over!

      A few weeks ago I came down stairs dressed for church.  My oldest, who is 9, said to me, "You look great, Mom. You look like an evil Disney queen."

      I think that was a compliment, or at least was meant to be!

      My son was 3 yrs old, most embarrassing moment...I raised my son in a town where black people did not live....we moved, I was pushing my son down the sidewalk, and he saw a young black boy on a bicycle....Ben's comment was...what's that monkey doing? I wanted to die.....the young man's father said don't worry they are only children.........

        His Dad didn't get to go very far in school so when he is doing homework, he says don't worry daddy I'll teach you. But the very best is "I love you Pops" , I sure miss the days when it was "I love You DADDY", that was when he was two. He's 8 now.

      when my son was about a year and a half he would walk up to me and stroke my cheek and say, "you're beautiful!" the first time he did that my heart just melted. <3

      one time we were walking across the street and there was a man walking past with a cowboy hat on and my son (2 1/2 at the time) pointed and said, "Hey! look, there's Woody!"

      so far my daughter doesn't say much, but last night she said her first words, "all done!" smile

      When my daughter was 5 (she is 21 now) I told her that she had my permission to say one bad word.  I was curious to see what she would say.  She scrunched up her face, thought about it for a long time, and finally blurted out, "Shut up".

      When my oldest daughter was about 10 years-old she asked me if Santa Claus was for real. I paused for a moment, not wanting to banish the magic of christmas, when she spoke again saying, "The truth Mommy..I need to know if Santa is for real or not." Okay, now I am feeling pressured to tell her the truth. So I explained that I was Santa.  She seemed to take it pretty good and thanked me for being honest. Later that night I over heard her talking to her Father on the phone. "Well Daddy I just found out that Mommy is really Santa." A moment later.."It's okay Daddy cause I know the toothfairy is still for real." I had a hard time holding back my laughter but I managed to make it outside before I let out a big giggle. I had killed Santa but all is well cause the toothfairy lives on.

    One of my favorites that made me laugh is when we were in the mall and my son who is 8 years old kept asking me to buy this and buy that, but I told him no, no and no.  Then he said "Mommy, you're just wasting my time. Let's go."

    When my 17 year old son was about 2 he was looking out the window one day and he said " Sacaduh mama," and he was so excited. I was busy so I didn't respond right away so he kept saying it in an urgent manner. A few minutes later I went up to him because he was still saying it, wanting me to come look. He was looking at a squirrel. He didn't know how to say squirrel so he said sacaduh. We still laugh about it today and quite often I refer to squirrels as Sacaduh. It was so cute.

    My 4  year old is quite the serious little guy these days, and puts so much thought into what he says.  Out of the blue during a long car ride he solemnly asked: "Mommy? Daddy? What do zombies do to entertain theirselves?"  We try so hard to take his questions seriously, but it was hard not to laugh at this one.

    When he was about 2, he told me he wanted to be a squirrel when he grew up.

    And just the other day, my sentimental favorite, he told me: "Mommy, I love you so much my heart might pop right out!" I'll treasure that one forever.

    I was riding in the car with my nephew who was 3 at the time and I asked him what he wanted to be when he was bigger....He said "a power ranger" so as an attempt to get a more 'realistic' answer I said, no do you want to be a policeman, a fireman he said "No Auntie I can't be a fireman because when I put out the fire the fire will go into my body then I will become a dragon" He was sooo serious I couldn't stop laughing so he asked me, "what' so funny?"

    I wrote this story down so I can give it to him when he's older

    Okay...this is quite a funny and embarassing story, but what the heck;

    A few years ago, I had a false tooth on a retainer.  While brushing my teeth one night, my 3 year old grand daughter was observing my nightly ritual.  She noticed the false tooth and asked "does it bite, can I pet it"? 
    Laughing just remembering that moment...I almost pee'd my pants that night.

    I was at Home Depot with my three year old son, buying a maul to split some firewood.  My son wanted to carry it around but it was too heavy, so I bought him a small hatchet to carry around as I needed one anyway.  This seemed to placate him. 

    When we got to the nice elderly female cashier, my son layed his hatchet on the counter and said, "I've got a little whacker, but my daddy's got a BIG whacker."  The cashier started laughing, which was all it took for me to lose it too.

    My four year old loves to bicker with me at times especially when it comes to bath time. I may have been a little exasperated at the routine. "No mama, I don't wanna take a shower."

    "YES, cricket you need to take one."



    "MAMA YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN." Now I was slightly irritated but his stance just made me burst into chuckles. With his hand on his waist and his index finger pointed at me. With a semi pouted expression and his cheeks slightly puffed out. And then proceeded to tell me how by swaying side to side.

    Two of my sons have this ongoing fascination with 'When I grow up..."  Everyday there is something new, and it always keeps me laughing.  Some days they are going to be cavemen.  Others, they are going to be the richest people ever and make sure everyone has enough food, but only go to school when they want to.  Some days, they are only going to feed their children junk food.  smile
    I'm glad it will be a long time (for them) until they grow up.

    My favorite story has to be the time I was underwear shopping with my now 8yo.  He was 2 at the time and very vocal.  I picked out a pair that was whit with lipstick kisses on them from the valentine selection.  He looked at them and declared, "My daddy will not like those! He will think they are ugly on you!" 
    Giving him a dirty look, meaning 'shut your trap, kiddo,' I dropped them in the cart and found another pair I liked.  Again he yelled, "Those are ugly -- my daddy is not going to like them! He is going to think you are ugly in them!"  Then, seeing he had no impact, he turned to the young male clerk who was stocking the place, he said, "Tell her those are ugly and my daddy is going to hate them!"
    The poor teenager found something else to do very quickly.

    It's not what they say so much as how they look. My daughter is very young, so she doesn't "say" much right now.. but I call her "Baby head" (long story) and she knows me by that. It's that reassuring look I get that is very comforting. You know the look, "I am happy, secure and you're my mom" look. I just love it. She knows I'm the only one that calls her, "Baby head". And, she is my wonderful, beautiful baby head.
