my three year-old niece just said "skeletons are nice".
"I haven't got a mandible."
"I've got a radius too, look."
"I haven't got any ribs."
me: "and what's the name of your witch going to be?"
...having only briefly met her once back in the summer. Didn't want to explain we broke up, so just said that she had to go home.
that it was bad table manners to try and take someone else's food, and my niece said (in that childishly aggrieved tone) "I'm a bad table man!".
made me think of diabetic lucifer.
My little nephew gets out the car, points to the painting of a family sign on the ground in the next space and says 'look uncle Dave, there's Mummy, Daddy and Lucas' (his little brother). So I said to him 'but where are you?' He looked around a bit confused for a bit and then quick as a flash pointed at a disabled parking sign and said 'I'm over there, sitting on the toilet having a poo!'
nothing they say is of any value or in any way adorable
This adult and terrible.
Mine can't do sentences yet, but she's trying, with a limited vocabulary (of which one word, unfortunately, is a very clear and Scottish "shite!" With quite funny results. She likes to communicate at the moment through dancing and pulling faces, whilst saying mama puppy lala shite, and permutations of this.
My goddaughter (7) recently said to me, when is my life going to stop being boring and I can be like you and mummy and wear mascara? Oh God, how do you persuade them to be little for as long as they can possibly get away with it?
yeah, she's like a random sentence generator :D really ahead of the curve with her verbal skills. lots of mad creative energy. a little tempestuous, but that's okay. I keep telling her complicated words and phrases, not sure she understands all of them but her comprehension is amazing. you'd love her. most people do!
if your niece is taking after you, I can foresee a torrent of comedy gold. I haven't heard mine swearing... yet. but I do want to her to be innocent for as long as possible.
20 mins after being refused another chocolate pudding, comes running in from another room;
- 'But the man said chocolate.'
: 'What man?'
- 'The man, he just says chocolate to me.'
: (confused): 'Where is this man?'
- blank stare
:(getting it): 'Is he in your head?'
: 'Is it your voice? Your voice in your head?'
: 'So, you want some chocolate?'
'Mummy, daddy and baby poos!'
That's wonderful, but it's still not going on the fridge.
"I watched a spidre caught a fly.
It ate the fly but left the face.
I cept the face"
...had his dinner plonked in front of him and just looked at the dinner then his Dad and said:
"Err... I'll just go and sit on the naughty step".
so my mum said 'defecate' instead of shit.
apparently I turned round and said:
'no mum, it's D for dog, and K for kate'
When my cousin was about 4, we found her staring wistfully out of the window at the clouds. I asked her what was wrong and she did a big sigh and said "Look at that little cloudy... I'll never see my granddaughters again".
I still like to remind her about it, she's 20 now.
