    Kids say the darndest things

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Torana, May 5, 2007.

    Ha anyone ever sat and listened to a little child speak, to some of the saying that they come up with over time as they are develpoing their conversatioanl skills.

    My cousin as she was growing up always said

    Saying Interpretation
    Lellow Lissan - Yellow Nissan
    Backroom Cleaner - Vaccuum Cleaner
    Out da backenyard - Out the backyard
    I tell my mum off - I'll tell my mum on you
    Don't look to me for - Don't look at me

    My own son has a few phrases he uses but nothing like me cousin.

    My son favourite phrase when you ask him to do something ( he is 3 years old) I can't, I busy on the puter room.......where he gets that from I will never know :rolleyes: :D :eek: :p

    oww bless 'em. i love children speaking. my nearly five year old cousin cannot speak very well yet (don't ask) and she calls a baby "deedee." and god knows what else, i cannot begin to understand what she actually means, haha. i had to sit for about an hour with her telling my knock knock jokes such as this.
    "knock knock"
    "who's there?"
    "a bid deedee"
    "a big deedee who?"
    "a bug deedee gifa fring hadnfng"
    and then she would burst out laughing and start all over again with a new one!
    owww kids eh,

    My Mom was talking with my 2 year old niece the other day and it went something like this.
    Niece: Hi Nana (her name for her other Grandmother)
    Mom: No this is Grandma.
    Niece:....
    Mom: Can you say Grandma?
    Niece: Nanagammamama ... Dada?

    Here's one for you that had us rolling on the floor.
    My nine year old was going through a period of not wanting much to eat. One day at tea a few months back she ate everything on her plate and then more. When we commented that it was good to see her not fussing over her meal she turned to us proud as punch and said 'I think I've got my attitude back.'
    She meant appetite if you're wondering and it certainly had us crying. *sigh* How true about the attitude though.

    Hahaha, maybe I could borrow her attitude then!

    I could never say Grandma or Nana or something when I was a kid and call my mums mum Narnie. I still do at the age of twenty two and a bit!

    And myt friends child had me in shock!

    She wanted a craker off the counter and I said that she had better ask mum (speaking about my friend) and she replied: "aw for F@!#'s sake! My jaw dropped! I could not believe it! It's amazing what kids can pick up, even if they repeat something that is said in frustration and not very often!

    lol that is funny DB, and Sayso I think that is hilarious about her saying attitude instead of appetite lol.

    I had a simailar incident with an uncle of mine on the weekend DB, everyone kept saying f off and well when they were leaving my uncle yelled it out the window of his car and my son, very kindly replied with the same words and I was in that much shock I simply stood there and laughed.
    He also has bad road rage whihch is kinda funny on long trips as he sits in the back seat and yells out "Get off the road" at the cars infront of us and also says quite fluently, "It's not Sunday. Move it..." hopefully he loses it before he is old enough to drive a car.....lol

    Okay, bear in my mind I'm all white and bilingual before reading the madness kids ask me...

    My all time favorite question from a kid, aged about 5 I think, was in Japanese - "What's hard gay in English?"
    With the words hard and gay already in English...
    I've also had, "Do you have a black santa Claus?", "Is it true white people can't do math because they have no number '0'?" and the one that had me totally stumped, "Why do white people have big noses?"

    I really hope I'm not asked those questions when I'm in China. I wouldn't be able to stop laughing.

    hahah lastnight my 4 year old was crying because I wouldnt give her junkfood before bed. When she finally calmed down, she informed me that her tears were like a volcanos hot lava. I thought that was pretty cute. She also told me during easter break that her and her friend lay eggs. Dont ask where that came from hahaha

    My brother and I used to get these gummy candies that were covered in sugar and so sour it made your mouth pucker.
    So we'd be eating them and sometimes say "Pucker Power". Only since we were little kids, speaking quickly, and with our mouths twisted up due to the sour taste, it didn't come out like that.

    Something Mason says now that cracks me up BIG TIME when his food is too hot to eat.

    "You have to use the fam mommy, cause it's fargy farg!"

    "The fam is fargy farg, use the fam mommy. Use the fargy farg fam!"

    I don't know where he got it from but yeah it is so damn cute and hilarious.

    When I was little and my foot would fall asleep I would tell everyone around me, "My foot has a fever."

    Nobody could understand me. So, I would just repeat it over and over again until one day they finally got that I was saying that the tingling in my foot was a fever.
