Kids' Quotes

The kids say funny things. They make me laugh.

  • "Sawman" = Solomon
  • "Snag-o" = Stagno
  • "Incrappables" = The Incredibles
  • "Chucky Barns" = Lucky Charms
  • He used to call purple "Ravens," but he doesn't do that anymore. This morning I asked him what his favorite color was & he said, "Purple! Just like the Ravens!!"
  • Upon seeing a tampon for the first time, he said, "Mommy, that's for your butt!" How could he even know it's for that region when he's never seen one before?? Now he says, "That's for your 'gina!" But he's never seen me use one. Just so everyone knows. Not once. That would be a little sick.
  • "'gina" = vagina
  • One time I took a pregnancy test. I used one of the kids' little plastic cups & Solomon saw it on the counter & said, "I want some!" Then later, I guess he overheard me say it was pee in the cup & told me, "Mom, cups are not for pee."
  • One day we were driving to the Dena for the weekend (1 1/2 hour drive) & he had to pee during the trip. We pulled over immediately & encouraged him to pee in the grass. He got really upset & refused, saying, "No! Only dogs pee in the grass!"
  • When he wants something, he says his sentence a little backwards, Yoda-style, "Watch Dora, want to!" or "Have fruit snack, want to!" This is weird, because he says his other sentences correctly.
  • Apparently the "Mountain Song" (Mighty to Save) belongs to Solomon, because when we're listening to it, & I'm singing along, he shouts, "Stop singing! This is MY song! I'm not sharing!"
  • One night Jason & Solomon were both gassy & Solomon said, "Our butts are talking to each other!"

Charlotte (She doesn't say too much yet.)
  • "Dodo" (as in dodo bird, not doo-doo) = Dora
  • "Bellybuttubuttu" = Bellybutton
  • "Shu-shus" = Shoes
  • "Oh-ch" = Ouch
  • "Doh!" = No (she goes back & forth between saying "doh" & "no.")
  • "Num-a-num-a-num-a!" = I want food. Feed me.

How have your kids never seen you use a tampon?! The bathroom door in my house is permanently open (unless the 17 year old is here--we do show some modesty around her!)

Seriously though, there are no private bathroom moments around here.

Holden said to me yesterday " I don't want to see them cut the baby out of your belly" and I was all "Holden, no one is ever going to cut a baby out of my belly!" And he said, "Oh, that's right it's going to come out of your vagina like I did!"

I was pretty impressed by the correct use of vagina and by the fact that he totally correlated his birth with this baby's! Then he asked me how babies get into bellies and when I told him "Mommies and Daddies have sex and the Daddy's seed and the Mommy's egg meet and make a baby." He says "I'm gonna get a seed and an egg and I'm gonna make a baby!" (And I have this adorable mental picture of him trying to make an apple seed and a chicken egg turn into a human baby!)

Ha! Holden is awesome. I heart him :)

There aren't many private bathroom moments in my house either, but I really don't want Solomon to see me use a tampon, so I usually keep him out when I need one. When he is in the bathroom w/ me, I'm pretty good at hiding what I'm doing. I guess he correctly assumed the tampon location based on the fact that I'm in the bathroom, near the toilet. But he seriously has never seen me actually put it in.
