The Funny and Cute Things That Kids Say: Part 1

Updated on July 25, 2012
One of my sons drew this many years ago on a slip of paper and I kept it. The heart shaped face and the word mom just stuck with me. I love this.

Write it down so you don't forget

As a writer and a mother, there have been many times over the years that my kids have either said or done something funny or profound that made me laugh, cry or meditate on. You know what I mean, those things that kids say that make you just stop and say "huh?". Many of us wish we could remember those things but unfortunately, with time, some of those things are lost with our memories.

As my kids were growing up I wanted so badly to capture those sayings so I started writing them down. It didn't matter where we were, I would grab whatever slip of paper and pen I could find and I would write down the thing said, the date and the kid that said it. I collected all these little pieces of paper and put them in my glove box, purse or drawer. Some days I would even pull over to the side of the road just to write down something cute my sons had said (pulling over on the freeway is not recommended however)

Many years ago I gathered together all these slips of paper and put them in a special wooden box. One day I am going to make a collage out of all of them. I was inspired to write down all the things my sons have said over the years here in this hub. I hope you enjoy them. I think they are quite sweet and typical of the cute and funny things that kids say.

Enjoy!

Notes from the past

These are actual slips of paper that I wrote the things down that my kids have said. I have many of these from over the years!

Out of the mouths of babes....

I come in after work, and my 10 year old son Alex greets me by hugging and kissing me. I say to my friend Karen who is there, "Isn't this nice to be greeted like this?" My son looks at my friend and says "See Karen, when you have kids you'll be greeted like this too!". (11-22-1996)


My son Alex said to me when he was 9 years old "Guess what mom? I gained a pound. I must be aging rapidly!". (2-8-1996)


I told 9 year old Alex one day that he was "good-hearted" and he says "Good-hearted but not light-headed, huh mom?". (5-7-1996)


10 year old Alex swept our 4,900 sq. ft shop one day for $2.00. When he was done he brings me a bucket with about 1 1/2" inches of dust in it and says, " Mom, is this 2 bucks worth the dust?". (10-26-1996)


My 10 year old son Nick says to me one day " Mom, when I'm 20 and in college, can I still come home at night? And then when I'm older, can you help me find a house and can you help me find a job too mom?. I replied "Yes" and then he says "OK. Good. I'm all set then!". (9-16-1997)



8 year old Nick says to me one day " Mom, when I'm 18 do I have to go live on my own?". Then he starts to cry and says, " I might not know your phone number and then I'll never see you!". (9-11-1994)


My 11 year old son Alex was doing his homework and I told him his paragraph was too short. He replied, " My brains don't have any more thoughts. I used them all on here". (10-1997)

    Something I've been meaning to do. So many stories and anecdotes. A journal of kid-isms is long overdue. Keep Hubbing.

    What a good idea to make a record of your children's comments as they were made! They are so funny. I can see why you kept the drawing too - it's a lovely souvenir.
