So the Sunday morning I get breakfast on the table and Morgan situated and a place for myself. Then I get Megan and my boppy pillow to nurse her at the table. I'm eating and Morgan says Mommy & Megan are eating. I say yes and explain that mommy eats and it goes through my body and I make milk and feed Megan. She agrees and says she wants to feed her too. So she touches my chest and says she is feeding Megan. All very sweet. Then she says something that makes me wonder for a minute..."I need a camera". I say, You need a camera?", She says, "To take a picture". I say of what? And of course I'm thinking Boy am I glad we aren't with others! She says,"The cow jumping over the moon!"

She also loves to "make us dinner". She has quite the imagination as you can see and also vocabulary. She will announce she is making dinner. Tortillas & Quesadillas are frequently on the menu. And yes she says them correctly!

She also likes when we make homemade play dough. She enjoys making more complicated things like a Christmas Tree with cutouts of individual leaves and christmas balls, Layered cakes with a candle with flame & decorations, a cupcake with the wrapper around it and a candle & other such things.

My oldest son was 4 when I had my daughter. I nursed her and leaving her was difficult because I swear she "knew" when I left. My husband at the time was getting ready for work but I needed to run to the store. I told him just get in the shower Micah will tell you if Ryan cries. I ran to the store and was back in 30 minutes. I walked in to a son watching cartoons, a newborn screaming her head off and my then husband looking confused. I asked him what happened and here is what he said.



I got out of the shower and Ryan was screaming. I asked Micah if he heard sissy crying to which Micah replied, yes. I asked him why he didn't come and get him and tell me sissy was crying. At which point Micah looked at me and said "She's not my baby. She's not my responsibility." and then clamly went back to watching cartoons.



He's 16 now and we have to be on our toes with him at all times. His logic is outstanding but social skills are lacking!

When my daughter was 3, I was in the kitchen clearing up the mess from dinner and she walked in, shook her head...put her hand on her head and said "oh mummy, this is just so ridiculous" and walked out the room. I just stood there gobsmacked lol.

When my son was 2 I was playing with his sister who was probably about four weeks old or so. He comes up to me with a very annoyed look on his face and says, "No, mama. Meg is MY sister. YOUR sister is Gloria. Go play with her so Meg can play with me."

Not exactly a head of the class story, but my 3 year old daughter and I were at a friend's house and we decided to put a Dora VHS tape in to keep her entertained while we chatted. We started it up, but when I sat back down and reached across the end table for my drink, I accidentally hit the power button on the remote. Chloe (the 3 year old) looked at me kind of pointedly, and when I said "What?", she gave a little sigh and said "I didn't screw it up!" I laughed so hard, I couldn't even tell her to say mess it up instead! lol

i am going to post one of my 3 year olds stories. she has been telling stories since she was 2 but it never occurred to me to write any down till just after her 3rd b-day because she tells so many! I thought this was fantastic. her other favorite pass time is to take an English language word and replace sounds in it over and over until the word is, i guess, "funny enough" and then laugh until she falls down.her love of Dora has made this even more interesting when she breaks into a Spanish word and starts re-creating it.
Nicole's story
once upon a time when I was in mommy's tummy, I had a back pack and it had a flash light and I could see her lungs and her blood in her tummy and then there was a monster in her tummy and I killed it with the cannon balls that I had in my back pack. the end.

Here's a pretty cute story about my boy's first pun... he would have been no more than just 4 and maybe a bit younger.  We were sitting writing letters of the alphabet together (actually that probably means he was only 3) and I had just written a capital C.  I was getting him to tell me things that started with C, but as ever, being a boy who didn't like to be taught, he wasn't co-operating with that direction and started to draw a neat crescent shape sitting above the big C.



"What's that?" I said.



He replied, with a smirk, 'A boat on the sea.'

Kristina,
That is definitely a curious conversation, but I am kind of laughing imagining what your reaction must have been! I just wanted offer up a couple of things, only because you mentioned it freaked you out.

One is, whenever my son says things out of the blue like that I try to ask where or how he learned about it. He often is able to tell me exactly what person or tv show or book or wherever. It helps me keep tabs on what are good sources and what might not be. You may be surprised to find out where she learned something like that. Oh, and the gay marriage thing may just be something that she deduced up from people around her. If all the married people in her world are paired off man/woman, then it's a natural assumption, right? Our kids are very observant. It might not have anything to do with the political aspect of it. We look at the things they do and say through an adult's perspective.

Second, I think it's important to reassure her that it's something that you CAN help her with and you will explain it to her when she needs to know, but it's not something she needs to worry about for a long time. Kids like ours often take the weight of the world on because they have much more knowledge about the world than the average kid their age. Even if we try to shield them they may not be carefree in the same way as other children.

I guess my main point for this whole post is that we can't assume that we know what and how they know things, but topics like this it might be best to find out and then make sure she's getting the right info from you, as is appropriate for her age/development at the time. My good friend is a nurse and has had kids as young as 9 in for labor and delivery (making a 29 yo a grandma!), so I really don't know that you can start too soon.

Kristina, Thats interesting you say that & I can totally relate for myself actually, not my  2 1/2 yr old YET.  I've never been tested for a level of giftedness but I will say that our kids will understand the "birds & bees" talk even if we don't give it to them.  I remember when I was just turning 5 having a conversation with an older girl of 9 about sex and babies.  (She was older and had been physically abused so she KNEW what she was talking about when it came to sex.  Thats another story and terrible,,,,But I'll go on.)  We were talking about it and she explain that it can cause a pregnancy.  I thought I had invented to idea of condoms because I explained that if you developed a barrier, like Saran wrap, to go over the penis then it should prevent an unwanted pregancy.  I WAS 5!  I just think its funny how much kids can know way before we even think to talk to them about it!  I totally relate to your daughter. She know more than you think.

Well, this is not funny - it freaked me out quiet a bit, but it definitely qualifies under the odd things kids say.



Today, as I was driving home, my 4 year old asks "Mom, will you help me control my body so that I don't get babies?" I started talking about this with her, trying to convince her babies are nice and that I am looking forward to being a grandmother. She is getting upset with that, insisting she needs  to "control" her body, but does not know how. Then I give up, and tell her "Just make sure you meet a nice girl and she can have babies for you." She gets even more upset  "But girls can't get married - only a boy and a girl can get married."



Just shows you! We don't watch tv, try to insulate our girls against mass culture, yet they pick up somehow anyway.

We were driving in the car and my 2.5 year old daughter kept kicking the back of her dad's chair. After repeatedly ignoring her father when asked to stop, she suddenly looked up from what she was doing with her doll and said " Im not doing it deliberately dad!". He couldn't argue with that.



She is very good at using your own wisdom agianst you. She has already begun 'winning' discussions/arguments with us (just turned 3 two weeks ago). She has an excuse for everything whenever she is in trouble, nothing sticks to her and she is never wrong in her mind. She is always saying 'but but but' when you try and tell her off. My husband was in the middle of doing this when she had her right of reply, then he said 'but...' and she said 'no buts dad!'. He was stumped, it was hilarious!

When Nick was 2-1/2 my husband was headed to the garage to move the cars out and ended up having the following conversation:

Nick: What're you doing daddy?
Mike: I'm going to move the cars.
Nick: I'll help move a car.
Mike: You can't drive.
Nick: Yes I can.
Mike: Can you drive without crashing?
Nick: No.
Mike: Then you can't move the car.
Nick: Oh. Well okay then.

At least he knew what his limitations were!

This is one of my "simpler" stories, but when my son was 4, he was sitting on his brother's bed reading while I was cleaning. I decided to turn on the radio and proceeded to act silly and play a little "air guitar," hoping to get a rise from my eternally "serious" child. Not raising his eyes from the book he says, "Mom, stop." I proceeded to ask, "OK, but what would you prefer, a mom who's fun and likes to act silly, or a mom who sits on the couch all day watching TV, eating junk food?" Again, without batting an eye he says, "I'll take that one!" Sarcasm from a 4-year-old, brilliant!

Such cute stories and of course I have one to add. LOL My daughter decided we needed to toast today at lunch. So she lifts her cup and says 'here is to us'. So we all touch cups and take a drink. So this went on for a while with here is to us, Katelyn, Mommy, Mam-Mam (her grandmother), combination of the above. Finally Mam-Mam asks what should we toast now? Katelyn states 'a piece of bread' with a big smile on her face.

Great idea for a thread, Kristen. I'm sure we all have a million funny stories to share.

One day last week after I picked Henry up from school I told him we were going to go to Home Depot on our way home. When I pulled into the parking lot he got really upset and started crying "no, no, this is not Home DepO, this is Home DePOT!" I tried to explain that the T is silent and that's how you pronounce it, but he was quite stuck on this and continued to cry a little even when we went inside, which was not so funny at the time. Of course by the time I was done shopping he didn't want to leave, but maybe we'll go with Lowe's next time!
