My name is Beth, I am the mom of a 1 year old, 2 year old and 6 year old. I am also a writer for the Examiner. I write a lot of stories about serious parenting issues, but I thought it would be great to write about something lighthearted and fun. So I am asking for stories about things that your child says or does that makes you laugh,

My 2 year old gave me a big wet kiss and then said " Cry Momma Cry" I asked him what he was talking about and he looked at me and sang a song from his Mother Goose tape. " Georgie Porgie pudding and pie, kissed the girls and made them cry" Then he kissed me again and said " Cry Momma Cry" I cracked up laughing.

I would love to hear other people's funny stories, and if you story can be used in the article, just let me know. :)

When my now 8yo was 2 she took raw eggs and Parmesan cheese and has then in a pile on the kitchen floor when I asked her what she was doing she said she was making donuts. Then a few weeks later when I had to work a double shift at work she was home with daddy and she climbed up into the cabinet and got the blue food coloring out and tried to do dishes with it. Daddy found her up at the sink with everything blue, including the floor she overflowed the sink. And with my 4 year old he came to me the other night and just as serious as could be asked me to call the cops. I asked him why he said so they can shoot the squirrels that are making to much noise in the roof. I was lauging so hard.

One night I was nursing Eric to sleep, he seemed asleep but suddenly he popped off looked at me and said "mmmmmmm!" he smiled and resumed nursing!

Another time recently as I am pregnant he was nursing and stopped to ask "more?" I guess I didn't have much milk so he started pulling himself to the other side saying "more, more" too funny, made me laugh!

When our dog barks I always yell lay down! So when Eric was about 13 months he started saying "day doww" meaning law down. He says it every time she growls out the window, and anytime he hears another dog bark. Even more he points while yelling it and puts his finger down as he says down. Perfect imitation!

He was in the store and a Justin bieber song was playing called "baby" in the chorus he sings baby baby baby ooh and I didn't even know the song was playing until Eric started saying "baby ooh baby ooh" almost singing but more just saying it in a high voice!

Now randomly he gets that song back in his head and I hear him singing "baby ooh baby ooh"

He is now 17months, all this took place since his birthday. Most more recently though!

My daughter is 2 and 1/2 and when we go to church and everyone is singing she stands up and sings her heart out. Clapping, waving her arms you name it she really gets into it. She was sitting on the couch last night and a song came on the radio and she was closing her eyes singing and waving her hands in the air and bobbing her head. She really feels the music!!

I have a 2 year old who will be 3 in November. She has been in the why stage for quite a while now. Whenever we tell her not to do something or to do something she asks "why". This is all day long, everyday. After a few months of this she would ask me "Why do I just keep asking you questions?" I thought that was one of the funniest things I have ever heard. Also she always says "hold me" even when you are already holding her. If I'm already holding her and she is in a good mood she will say "How much more can you hold me?" lol.

My Mason, who is three, second to yungest of 4, gets very frusterated when he doesn't get his way. The other day he wanted a cookie, as it was just before lunch I had to deny his request. With a stamp of his foot, and an tiny roar, he exclaimed "I never get ANYTHING! I need a new mommy."

Later that day he climbed into my lap and put his hands on either side of my face. He then told me "I love you mommy" "awww, I love you too Mason" " I like you too, mommy" "I like you too Mason. I think you are wonderful" "You are my best girl"

I can't remember really any off the top of my head for some reason, I know there a bunch.. But earlier today we were playing with a ball and it hit my daughter (she's 2) in the face. She then started walking up the stairs saying "I just don't need this right now".

My 2.5 year old daughter has become fond of saying "I made it myself." She says it with anything she combines in a pot, Play Doh, Sand and leaves, etc., well the other day as my husband was changing her he said oh Avery, you have a surprise in your diaper for dad, she said, "yes, and I made it myself!"

Well, I am the mother of a 3 year old boy that is really fighting the potty training. When I took him to the toilet....excuse the off color comment, he said"Momma, I no go.....My pecker not working!!" Really????????? From a 3 year old!!! What does my husband teach him when I am not home? Needless to say, I could not help but to giggle!! It's a funny word no matter who says it, but it's funnier from a little person....Now for my husband...........:)

I was telling my three year old that his baby sister didn't have any teeth yet and he said "I'll buy her some teeth for her birthday."

Also, this winter my son was fascinated with snowmen and his aunt told him a snowman is made of snow so he ran around all winter saying the snowman is mad at the snow. We would laugh and keep correcting him. Then a few months later, he said "Mommy, are you mad at Daddy?" I said no and he thought for a minute and then asked "Are you made of Daddy?"
(okay to use)

My name is Heather, I have a son that is 2, his name is Dane. He says the cutest things all the time. His new thing is when you tell or give him something his response is "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, thanks" -lol he is too much! He is like a sponge so everything he hears is a new message he has to relay.

i crack up everytime my 2 yr old daughter when she is playing with her stuffed animals, will come up to me with a bear in her hand and say "mommy Poop" and pinch her noise and make stinky noises pointing at their tails, thinking theyre having a poop! lol

[deleted account]

My 3 yr old son was taking a shower with my 3 yr old granddaughter...I know strange, my kids are spread out,.....anyway he said to me "mommy, Ebi is broken" . I said "broken, what do you mean? She doesnt have a boo boo". He said no, look she doesn't have a pee pee, how does she go to the bathroom?" I still crack up thinking about that.

[deleted account]

One more for you...my seven year old son who can read fairly well was riding in the front of the car and kept asking me why we drive a lemon? I didn't know what to say....because this is all mommy can afford honey. So he asked again on another occasion and I finally said to him, why do you think we drive a lemon honey? He said because look right here- (over the glove box) was the model of the car and it says Lumina !!!

I died laughing this past winter when my 3 yr old told our neighbor that when had a big "lizzard" that made it snow alot but now the lizzard got small and went away and maybe it will be back again this year when Santa comes! When we had a tornado warning recently he was running around asking if the "tomato" was going to come get us. And last but least...weather related too...we were have some spring showers and he stood in the backyard and yelled at the top of his lungs "itsy bitsy spider go away, go away" and I asked him why he was doing that and he told my that there are spiders out there he saw them and they are making it rain cause they have to go down the water spout!!!

The other story with Madison. I told her on a cold morning to get her jersey or she would get pneumonia, to which she replied "Who is Leumonia?". A few days later i told her to get her jersey again, she replied "Is that Leumonia coming again?"

My daughter Madison 4yrs old. We were going through parts of the body one day. When we got to the nostrils I wondered if she would get it right. I asked her and she replied "snots", i guess it was from all the colds we had just recovered. from

I was taking my 2 to the park Ethan 2 and Ashleigh 1. I was telling Ethan where we were going and he turns round to me, just as we get to the main road where people are waiting to cross and asks "mummy me go park?" I tell him yes and his reply to me was " mummy no kicking babies in the park" like I make a habit of kicking babies when we go to the park. I nearly died when a woman standing next to us gave me the death stare.

my son Gavin is almost 26months old and hes just starting to put words together to make his thoughts comprehensible...most of the time, they still arent, but he's learning at least.
the other day I was in the kitchen doing dishes, his dad was in the living room, and Gavin was going to walk out the back door. his dad got up go to the bathroom, but Gavin did not want him to get up. he got this very serious look on his face, almost angry, and said "NO, (babble babble babble) stay, dada!" it was the funniest thing ever, because we knew what he wanted to get across but we werent expecting a whole rant!

hope your article is coming along great! :)

I have two children, Ben who 4 and half and Olivia who is 2 and half.
A few months ago my parents were moving house, and I was trying to explain that soon we wouldn't have to travel very far to see Nanny T. I said that at the weekend we we're helping her move house. With a look of utter Horror he asked "have we got to pull the house all the way!" I took awhile for me to stop laughing enough to answer

Ollie has her own special way of making me laugh. If i'm lying on the settee and I close my eyes she comes up and taps you on the face ad kisses you telling you to wake up. Then we you open your eyes she shouts at you and tells you to go to sleep, just so she can do it all over again lol

Can be used :)

My six year old son is a charmer, he often says things that make me very happy to be his mom: "Mom, God knew what he was doing by making you my mother, you are the best mom on earth. I just love you so"

I think you'll get a lot of replies on this one! When its your own kid, everything they say is funny!

When my son was 4 1/2, he told my mom, 'my daddy has a really big wiener!' Just what she wanted to hear about her son-in-law. LOL!

And the other day (he's now 6) he asked me 'can babies go to Jubi?'. (wondering if his sister can go to jail for being bad)

And he had on his darth vader costume recently and said, 'I just can't believe this cape is so big and can't even make me fly'.

My daughter repeats most everything said. Today she was just into everything, and I couldn't keep up. (She'll be 4 in December.) Dump a bowl of strawberries, I'd go to wipe up the mess & then there went a cupcake icing down onto the floor, pet water dishes dumped - you name it, the mess was made! Saying her name wasn't working, so I said "Child, child, child!!!" Just when I was ready to yell & rip out my hair, her sweet voice said "Uhm, no mother! You child, child, child!!" I couldn't help but just crack up laughing!

Another thing she does, if putting on clothes (especially when she's still wet from getting out of the tub) if they don't 'fit' or she struggles to get them up, she'll huff & sigh and make a comment like "Ugh, too many cookies." or "Too fat for these, too!? Time to go shopping!!!" It's just too funny to hear such "adult" talk come out of such a short little person's mouth!

My daughter will tell me to cry, so that she can console me. She loves to play little mama!
