Yes, LO cracks me up. The other day we were in the car and Adele's "Hello From the Other Side" came on and we had the following conversation:
LO: Did she just say she called someone a thousand times?!
LO: That's a lot. Was it us she called?
Me: I don't think so bud, we don't know her.
LO: well, can you just check your phone to make sure?

@yoursilverlining: Ok, seriously laughed out loud! I wish I was there.
@LulaBee: Was she right?? That'll teach you to ask a hypothetical question with an actual answer.
I hope this is a really long thread!!! I love these.
This morning, I told LO the toast is taking a long time so the toaster oven might be broken. She said, "Oh that's ok. We can just make a solar oven to cook something else." Before I even responded, she dumped out a craft box and carefully placed it on our sunny table and said, "Yah, all we need is tin foil."

Kennedy was sitting beside me while I was changing Max's diaper.
"Oh Stinkerbutt," she says "It's okay. That's just how God made you, with a stinky butt."

Last week I asked Alice when she'd be ready to sleep in a big kid bed and she said "not for a long long time. Maybe on Saturday." Maybe when you're two, Tuesday to Saturday really IS a long long time.

We'd been walking around the zoo all morning and were on our way out. I said "B, hurry up, we have to get to the car" and he said "Mommy, I'm trying, but my feet are not going so fast."

E: Mom, who's Kevin?
M: I don't know bud, Kevin from where?
E: Callie-dog died and went to Kevin, who's Kevin?
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

B is looking out the window at night: "they're watching TV, or a computer, that's why their window is blue!" Then, after some thought: "but TVs and computers, that's all so silly, that's all nonsense, Western nonsense."
I'm still scratching my head about where he might have heard that one.

We were getting read to go somewhere as a family:
LO: Can mama drive?
Me: sure, why do you want me to drive?
LO: you are a best driver.
DH: what makes her the better driver? what makes someone a good driver?
LO: She's a girl and I love her.

Fin found an old wallet of mine with a rewards card inside and said "This card says Fin is pretty".

@808love: Has she been reading curious George? There's one on solar power and electricity.
I was making supper with my 2.5 year old and stepped out of the room for a minute. When I walked back in I sang "you put the lime in the coconut". He yelled 'i get it' and ran to the fridge to get out the lime juice.
(I let him pour some in because it fit with the dish)

Earlier tonight DS asked DH to take him to the potty. After he's peed and has his pants back on I hear this conversation:
DH: D, why are you grabbing your butt?
DS: Because I want to.
DH: Yes, but why do you want to?
DS: Because...my undies are up my butt!
I died laughing .

Tonight at bed time DD said 'I can't live like this!' in a very melodramatic way. She was referring to having to go to sleep every night. I laughed in her face and now I'm racking my brain to think where she may have heard that.

My daughter just turned 4. She says "boring" instead of born...no idea why. "Back when I was boring at the hospital.." You have no idea, kid
@brownepiano: Yes!! I asked her and that's where she came up from that! All good ideas come from....PBS?!
Oh these are so good....our kids are awesome!

@Mama Bird: "western nonsense". Hilarious
These are my favorite threads!
The other night DD and I were going to slide together. She sits in my lap and says:
"Mommy, are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"I don't know, what are you thinking?"
"Let's think, sliding!"
She asked me if I was partying the other night at dinner.
And lately when she doesn't want to nap she will come out her room saying "but I just took a faster nap!" Yeah, sure you did, kid.

This morning, DH asked LO (nearly 2) if she wanted to kiss him goodbye. She said no, so DH pretended to cry in an exaggerated way. LO turns to him and says, "it's ok Dada, that's not something worth crying about. You'll survive!"
Pretty sure that one came from daycare!

Oh man I love these threads.
DD is almost 2 and loves correcting people. Her funniest is when you say to sit on her bottom and she goes "That's not bottom, that's butt!" In her little toddler voice.

We've been teaching B that you don't touch your junk in public....
Me: "B remember what I told you about touching yourself in public"
B "ok mommy, I'm going to go to my room so I can play with my penis".
I thought this would happen at 14, not 4!

One of our cars was totalled. DS asked where the car was.
Me: It was in an accident and is very broken.
DS: Are we going to fix it?
Me: Well, it is too broken to fix it.
DS: We need a bigger tool!
We took a peaceful walk yesterday and LO says, "Boy there is so much sirence (silence) on this street."
A few moments later we heard an ambulance. She cracked up laughing and said, "Not that kind of sirence (sirens)!!! That's pretty funny, right Mom?!"

The other night D told us he didn't want his fan to oscillate!
He's been telling us these elaborate stories about his job at the museum. He drives there in his red car (which looks like a batmobile). His job is to fight the sharks/dinosaurs/Iron Man. He tells it so convincingly, too!
And last night my sister texted that her son (3y) said to them at dinner, "Did you guys hear what Donald Trump said?" My sister and BIL said "No, what did he say?" Then Q said "Flowers!" and started hysterically laughing.
DD just randomly walked up to me and said "why did you come back?"
Me: "come back where?"
Me: "I live here"
DD: "no. You can live in the other homes."
Me: "then who will take care of you?"
DD: *laughing* "you can just come to my house then leave"

My 3 year old son came to the dentist with me yesterday.
Hygienist: Do you want to be a dentist when you grow up?
Hygienist: What do you want to be when you grow up?
DS: I want to be a man!
@Alba4: haha, that reminds me when DS went through a phase of declaring that when he grows up he doesn't want to work, he only wants to be a daddy and be on vacation!

Not mine but this morning my daughter said, "Hey, X, my mommy is picking me up today!" And X said, "My mommy is picking me up early for a flu shot!" All excited....poor kid. Haha.
@lilyann: ahah! Yes, she just saw Frozen the weekend before! Thanks for helping clear that up!
