Friday Fun- From the Mouths of Babes


Remember the show with Art Linkletter...Kids Say the Darndest Things?  I think people loved it so much because it was real. And if you’re around wee ones, you know what I mean. 

 

 

Recently I had Mini-me with me to pick up lunch for the gang. On our drive (and by the way, she talked almost non-stop) I happened to mention Larry’s daughter. 

 

What?! Uncle Larry has a daughter???

(Picture the look on her face...like a deer caught in headlights!)

 

This opened up a river of questions…

Is she Your daughter?

Do YOU have a daughter?

Do you talk to Uncle Larry's daughter?

 

And when she found out Larry's daughter was older than her own mother…

She’s a grown-up?

Uncle Larry was married before????

 

 

And finally, when I assured her that I was her mother’s aunt and really her aunt too…

Oh, thank God. You had me worried. 

 

One more slip of my tongue when I dropped my credit card by the car seat and said…

Oh, Sh_t!   Immediately followed by Excuse my French. 

 

Aunt Kathy...I didn’t know you speak French!!!

 

Want to add some fun to your life...talk to a child!

Hi Kathy Streib - What a fabulous and precious conversation you had with "Mini-me".  I see my 5-year-old grandson a couple of times a week and he never ceases to amaze me with his grasp on things.  They do make you feel young again!

BTW - I can't get away with saying "Excuse my French", with Tristan. He understands French fluently. Ha Ha! - When he was just learning to speak, he would conflate English with French, and sometimes we would not know what he was saying.

Nina Hollander, Broker if we just let them talk, it's amazing where their mind goes. 

Grant Schneider you probably don't have the sailor mouth I do. 

Michael Jacobs I think sometimes we try to give them more than what they want to hear.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD so glad that you're having family time. Kids can ask more questions!!! And I love seeing how their mind wanders and processes. 

Will Hamm so many of the children learn those words from their friends!

That's pretty funny, Kathy. Some relationships can be tough to explain.

I remember the Art Linkletter show as well - great fun. My daughters have kept track of some of the stuff the grandkids have said, especially when they were younger - fun to look back.

And as far as your French, well, c'est la vie.

Morning Kathy.

Why yes, yes I remember Art Linkletter.  It was a great show.  Also I'll go along with the crowd as I did not know you spoke French...  Have a good weekend.

It can be pretty funny when kids allow certain concepts to roam around in their heads.  By the way, I like that car you're in.  It's a convertible.  What make is it?
