Outta the Mouths of Babes.7

(oh, the darling pictures I find whilst looking at my hub's phone...
aka future blackmail material

My kids. They crack me up. Here are a handful of snippets from around Chez Hopkins


WILL: Gracie, did you see who came in while you were sleeping?

GRACIE: I already know. It's Uncle Tom. I was staring at him when he was sleeping in the middle of the night.

WILL: O_o That's kind of creepy.

GRACIE: I know! Uncle Tom IS creepy!
ANNELIE: The movies' not over, Mom. There aren't letters all over the TV yet. That's how you know.


ME: Hey, Annelie. You have a dentist appointment tomorrow.

ANNELIE [excitedly]: I do?

ME: Yup.

ANNELIE [more excitedly than before]: To have all my teeth pulled out of my head!!?

ME: Um.... no? Why.... do you want all your teeth pulled out?


(anyone else seeing Little Shop of Horrors dentist in this kid's future?)
ANNELIE [fighting with her sister]: I am mad at you! Mad and sad! And those words RHYME!

ANNELIE: I'm having a staring contest with my boyfriend right now.

ME: Your imaginary boyfriend?

ANNELIE: Yeah. But he always wins.
GRACIE: This song is really great. What's it called?

ME: Broken Jaw.

GRACIE: Oh. That's sad. But at least it's not called Broken Heart. Now THAT would be REALLY sad.

(my 6-year-old, such a hopeless romantic)

And for your listening (and viewing!!!) enjoyment:


ANNELIE: Mom, you talk different.

ME: Different than what?

ANNELIE: Different than Spanish.


Okay, that's all, folks! Hope you're all having a great week!

Sounds like our conversations around here. My latest favorite was when Merrick's gymnastics coach asked him if he liked vegetables and he said "No....I like Scooby Doo". We are a random thinking bunch of people!

Kelly Polark said...

Marisa, your kids ALWAYS make me smile or giggle. Keep posting what they say. They are adorable.

Have you published these quotes and this photo before?! I've read/seen it before...and if you haven't then I'm totally creeped out cos it would mean what? I have some weird telepathic thing going on or something?!

Unknown said...

Hahaha, Cathy you probably saw some on Facebook!!!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Okay, 'fess up:

IS Uncle Tom creepy?

Pretty Things said...

What Diana said -- is he???

Unknown said...

hahaha. What I thought was particularly funny was that she hadn't met her Uncle Tom yet (other than when she was a one-year-old) !!! Kids, man. Who knows how their brains work!! :)

In general, I love the things kids say. You have some especially fantastic ones! This reminds me that I really should be logging the little snippets from our own home. (Time to sift through Facebook for those!)

I love kids...

Julie Dao said...

Your girls are SO CUTE! These quotes are precious. Looks like you may have a budding author and a budding romantic on your hands!
