FUN MONDAY - Children Quotes



Our this week's host Mariposa says that kids say the darnedest things!

When our son was little I kept a book with all the funny things he said when he was 2 or 3, but I just can't find it. But I always remember when he was about 3 years old and in a supermarket saw a black man for the first time in his life. Of course he stared at him and then ask me in his loud squeaky voice : Mamma why is this man all black ? By the time I tried to find an intelligent answer he had run over to the man and then shouted all over the place : Mamma ! I know now, he was born like that, he has told me !!

People all around were laughing I included and I found this answer very clever !

I also found some funny quotes of German kids on a German website and translated them for you. They really made me laugh, because they are very logical in some way !

- My mom has to eat grass otherwise she doesn't have any milk for my little brother

- When I fart, my botty yawns

My mom has a baby in her belly, but I don't know how she swallowed it.

- Daddies scatters seeds and Mommies lay an egg, that way babies are made

- I don't have my grandma anymore they have planted her in a graveyard

- I have curls, dad has curls, mom has only hairs

I'm glad the man took it in stride instead of getting pissed off. i think the world would be a whole lot better place if everyone took things like that in stride. i had a little girl once (old enough to know better), that told me I had a haircut like a boy. Um, sure it was short, but it was fashionably female styled. whatever. guess she'd never seen anyone of the female variety with short hair?

My younger sister had a similar reaction the first time she saw a black man.

I wish I had writen down the things my kids said when they were little.
At least you have one clear memory.

How funny is the way kids explain the mysters of life! Mes petits élèves me donnent toujours le moral! Ils sont charmants avec moi! Bruyants mais charmants!

I had a similar experience with our middle daughter -- the first time she saw a dark skinned person was at a restaurant - who was there to take our order.

Poor man - he pretended he didn't hear her yell, "Look, mommy, a black man!"

and she wouldn't stop saying it until I finally said, "Yes dear! He is!" and then she was satisfied that I had confirmed her opinion.
