Kids say the darnest things...

Post by ChiefKiasu » Tue Sep 30, 2008 5:43 pm

What is the funniest thing your kid ever said/do to you?

My 3 yo daughter came to me yesterday night with her pencil and paper.

She: "Daddy, how to spell your name?"
Me: "Why you want to know?"
She: "Because I want to write it down."
Me: "OK... what do you think it is?"
She: "Oh... I know... it's DADDY!"
Me: :roll:

I play a guessing game with my 3yo for his vitamins which have alphabets on it.

Me: "What does naughty starts with?"
Him: "Naughty starts with me?"

Everytime when my hubby's handphone starts ringing, we will always tell our 3 yrs old girl not to make so much noise in the background especially when we are all in the car cos the caller maybe his client.

One evening, someone called my hubby while he is driving and we were both sitting in the back seat. My girl did not make any noise but immediately when the daddy hung up the phone, the conversation follows :

girl : Daddy, who is calling you? Is it your customer?
Daddy : No is not the customer, is the hotel
girl : Daddy, hotel cannot talk

I burst into laughter and immediately my hubby corrected his english and told her "is someone from the hotel"

I was sitting with my then-5yr old, who was doing some English assessment...

Question : What animal makes the sound 'roar'?
My boy : Dinosaur
Me : No la... the answer is lion.

After that, on our way for lunch, I tried to explain why 'dinosaur' was not an applicable answer...

Me : We have not seen dinosaur before, so we don't know if they roar. We see lions before, right?
My boy (confused) : But at the zoo, the lions are far away inside the cage, I did not hear them roar.
Me : But you have seen lions roaring on TV, right?
My boy : But I've also seen dinosaurs roar on TV too...
Me : ..... ...

Yes they are, and here are some more stories, not sure if it is true:

A woman invited some people over for dinner. At the table she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?" The girl replied, "I wouldn't know what to say." "Just say what you heard Mommy say," the mother answered. The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

Many others in this old thread of ours. But I think it is more funny if the incidents actually happen to ourselves :lol: .

I was having a meal and I happened to "use" my 3.5 year old son's plate.

Son: Mummy, are you using MY plate?
Me: Hmm...nodding my head.
Son: Mummy, are you using MY "racing car" plate? (It is a plate with a picture of a racing car on it).
Me:Yeesss (getting louder and impaitient)
Son: DID YOU ASK PERMISSION?

:oops: :roll: :oops: :shock:

My husband is trying to convince me to allow him to install bass trap in his entertainment room (our living room). In order to convince me, he starts making the "hmmm..." sound & gets everyone to do the same. The idea was to hear how boomy our voices are. It was my turn to hum & when I glanced over to my son, he was sitting cross legged, putting his hand in the air imitating the act of meditating.

Years back, when my son was around 2 years old, his childcare teacher commented that he was able to grasp & understand Mandarin. While watching tv at home, I teased my son to translate an advert in Mandarin to English. He cheekily replied, that the advert says to buy more toys for for him.
