The Things Kids Say

Children can say the funniest things. Here are a few of my daughters’ recent quotes for your amusement and horror.

“I’m going to be a dentist when I grow up. Then I can take out everyone’s teeth and get money from the tooth fairy.” I like the entrepreneurial spirit, even if it’s somewhat sadistic.

From my 5-year-old, who comes up with countless excuses why she can’t go to bed; “I can’t sleep at night, only in the morning. I’m an owl.” What a hoot.

“Mama, when you die you’re giving the iPad to me.” Wow! I was understandably speechless.

Referring to a school friend, my 7-year-old said, “Lola has a cross on Kevin.” It took me a while to figure out that she meant ‘a crush’ on Kevin. So sweet.

As we drove past the hospital where my youngest had undergone a traumatic blood test, she shouted, “There’s Gleneagles. I 100% HATE that place. I’m going to burn it down!” Great, I’ve got an angry arsonist on my hands.

“Mummy, I don’t know what I have to do with this smart brain.” Talk about conceited!
