Kids Do Say The Darndest Things...

What are some of the funniest, strangest or even wisest things you've heard come from the mouths of babes?

  1. Somehow, this makes me think of taking my little brother and my mother to see "The Trip to Bountiful". (My brother is 20 years younger than me. If you know the film, Geraldine Page plays an older woman who schemes to leave her son and daugher-in-law to visit her girlhood home. (It's a great film.) My little brother was about 3 years old. My mother and I figured that he would go to sleep right away, as nothing much happens in the movie, it's mostly dialogue. Sure enough, he went to sleep by the middle. We carried him home, still sound asleep, to my apartment in Houston. When he woke up the next morning, the very first thing he said was "Did that lady get back to her home place? I worried about that all night." It was so touching...and surprising, because we didn't think he was following the story. (We told him the happy part of the ending, but not the sad part, until several years later.)

  2. You know how a female can nut?
    And you know how a male can nut?
    And you know if both those nuts mix on the dick tip?
    Is that how men get pregnant?

  3. A child said that you can tell when someone loves you because your name sounds safe in their mouth. Wow.

  5. My 3 year old told me she needed $40 to pay her bills.

    She heard her daycare provider talking because mommy's bills are way more than $40. lol

    She also wanted to eat her candy that fell on the floor and said "Mommy when we were in Aruba Uncle Harris ate off the floor and didn't kiss it up to God". Did God do any thing to him?

  6. I was working as a Children's Librarian and a young man of about ten came up to me and asked for books on sex "for a report". I thought, "yeah, right". However, he just might have been telling the truth as about fifteen minutes later, he approached me, with a very serious face, and said, "Excuse me, miss, I need to know what year sex began for my project." Some questions are kinda hard to answer.

  9. I was fussing at my son and in the midst I screamed, "you have lost your mind.". He immediately turned and started walking away. This of course caused me to yell, "where are you going?" he innocently looked at me and replied ,"going to find my mind."
