Kids Say The Darndest Things ~ Friday Edition

My friend Christina has started a little Friday fun by jotting down the funny things her cutie little girl has said over the week, and since I’m all about themes, and topical days (it gets me out of a jam when I don’t have time to find real stuff to write about!) I thought I’d join in today.

I’ve been saving a couple funny things Em and Ad have been saying and I really want to get them down somewhere so I don’t forget them.

So here goes – my funny Valentines…


Addie’s funny words and phrases:

ahind = behind, as in “Mama! Look ahind you! There is a puppy!”
yook = look, as in “Yook at me, Mama!” Must also grab my chin and turn my head towards her when saying this.
musbash = mustache, as in “Do I have a musbash, Mama?” Said every time she takes a drink of something, not always a milk mustache, either.


Emma’s funny phrases:

knick-knack name = nickname, as in “What is your knick-knack name, Daddy?”

And, the other day she asked me – “Mama? Is Addie pushing your buttons right now?!”


And a couple of funny stories from Addie and my “day out” together the other day:

Addie: “Mama? Can we go to the puppy/kitty store (what she calls PetSmart)?”
Me: “Sure. I have one more errand to run, and then we will stop, ok?”
Addie: (sighs) “Ah, Mommy. Do you know how happy that makes Addie?”

(I tell them all the time when they do something *nice* – “Do you know how happy that makes Mommy?” but it sounds very funny coming back at me!)

And one more…

We were going into a bathroom at a store and an older gentleman was coming out and held the door open for A. and I. Then, later when we were leaving the store, he happened to be leaving as well and again, he held the door for A. and I.

Me: “Thank you so much! We are just going to follow you around all day so we can have the doors held for us.”
Man: (chuckles) “No problem. I’m just doing my duty.”

So A. and I continue down the street and all of a sudden she starts giggling…

Ad: “Mama…he said It’s my DOODY!”
Me: (kinda clueless at the moment) “Yes, it means like a chore or a job.”

And then I see her face and she is snickering at the word, because she thinks the man was referring to poop.

Where on God’s-Green-Earth does that girl come up with this stuff? Never in my life have I ever used the word, “doody!

My girls seem to have missed the memo that says that only boys laugh at bathroom humor.

    I LOVED this edition! Of course I love the ones with pictures, and stories, and details of your trips, and other things too, but this really was fun for a Papa to keep up with the “day to day”
    Maybe it could be a regular feature??

    Oh my gosh, how priceless, I am LAUGHING out loud at the doody comment.
    Do you know how happy that makes Anna ? 🙂

    Papa –
    Should be no problem to make it a regular (maybe not weekly…but regular) feature – they provide ample fodder. I just have to remember to write it down somewhere!

    These are so cute. I love the one about her saying “That makes Addie Happy” Too cute

  5. 5 Christina May 9, 2008 at 11:13 am

    SO glad you played along today – do you know how happy that makes Christina???

    I LOVE hearing funny kid sayings and these are some good ones! I can’t even pick a fav. knick-knack names are pretty cute, tho.

    As for the memo that bathroom humor is supposed to be a BOY thing? My girl missed it too. We are obsessed with all things bathroom related. Joy.

    Oh Carrie i just heart your girls, i seriously cannot stop giggling right now…….doody indeed

    Kids are too funny! Unfortunately, most of the funny things that Garrett says are DIRECTLY repeated from me. Apparently I am quite a bit more quirky than I realized…

    Yeah! How cute! I call it Favorite Phrase Friday. I’m so glad I started doing it because I have looked back at some from last Fall and already forgot a few cute things Harrison has said. Of course, I forgot a few cute things he said yesterday…

    As for doody, I couldn’t resist testing it:

    I asked Harrison “What’s ‘doody’?” He responded, “doc” Doc? “Do you like the word ‘doody’?” He responded, “Dukey-dog” Oh, he hears ‘Dukey’ as in Duke-the-Dog!

    I guess he missed the memo that ‘doody’ is another word for poo-poo! Amazing seeing how he has a big brother that STILL laughs ANY form of bathroom humor even at 17 years old.

    My girls missed the memo too, because they are crazy over potty talk sometimes!

  10. 10 Kim May 11, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    hehe… I particularly like the doody comment.

    Love your girls’ sayings! They are so cute! Yeah, I don’t know where they pick some of the stuff up either.

    The ‘musbash’ is my fave………
