Kids Say the Darndest Things

Maggie’s thoughts of Makeup Gym classes got me to thinking that I haven’t posted many kiddo conversations lately. Here’s a dose of the latest.

Logan to Mommy: “You’re single cuz *I’m* married to daddy.”


Burke: “Will Maggie and I still be twins if we don’t have the same teacher next year?”


Maggie to Daddy: “You crazy old man!”


Burke: “Daddy, did your mommy name you ‘Daddy’?”


Burke to Maggie: “I will eat you!”
Maggie to Burke: “Please don’t; I am a good guy.”


Logan (somewhat remorseful): “I ate a kid.”
After biting a playmate at EI playgroup.


Burke to Mommy: “Your coffee smells like it was sprayed by a skunk.”
Not quite how I’d describe Creme Caramel…


Maggie (singing): “Follow the Elephant Row, Follow the Elephant Row.”
Pretty sure that’s supposed to be ‘Yellow Brick Road’ …


Logan: “Daaadddddy! Daddddddy!!”
Daddy (after walking upstairs): “Yes, Logan?”
Logan: “I want Mommy.”


Logan: “Mommmmmy! Mommmmy!!”
Anyone (thinking they’re being helpful when I’m busy): “What do you want, Logan?”
Logan: “I want Mommy.”

Make-Up Gym Class

Burke and Maggie have been going to a gym class each week for the summer. Since we were on vacation last week, we did a make-up gym class for the one we’d miss.

When we got back into the car after it was over, Maggie looked at me and said in a really sad voice, “But mom, they didn’t put any makeup on me.”


“OH!!!” *giggle* “Maggie, make-up gym classes just mean that we are going to miss one and they’re letting us go to another one at a different time…not that they’ll put blush or lipstick on you.”

LOL! She’s too cute 🙂

…and that may also explain why Burke really didn’t want to go at first 😉

Makes My Monday: Conversations with Maggie

Maggie brought her stuffed lamb over to me this morning and said, “Mom, look! I have my little lamb!”

Of course, I started singing, “Maggie has a little lamb…”

She interrupted me and said, “No. It’s Mary’s. I’m just taking care of it for her.”

We then had a wonderful conversation about how Mary lives with us, but she’s over at the neighbors right now.

It ended up turning into a story about how Mary has a magic key to get into our house and only Maggie’s magic ears can hear her come in.

Conversations with Maggie – and her very imaginative stories – Make My Monday.

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Head on over to see what else makes people’s Mondays (there are always some really good ones!)

Kiddo Converations

While driving to Costco the other day, the following conversation happened in the car:

Burke: I see a phone tower! And look at that cloud…it looks like a bunny!

Mommy: Burke, you’re so observant, I love that you see so many things.

Burke: Logan’s good at finding tractors and trucks, but I’m the best at finding everything else.

Maggie: (while giggling) Tree! Tree! House! Tree!

Friday’s Fotos and Kiddo Conversations

The things kids say can really crack you up. And sometimes, they come up with their own special word that actually fits perfectly.


Apparently Burke has a “sneak-ret” hiding place for things. I need to try to get him to say that on video…it’s so cute!


When we were in Vermont, Maggie had a very deep conversation with Grandpa. I wasn’t there, but I hear that the gist of it is she asked about his mom and where she was (Heaven). Normally when we talk about Heaven with her (that’s where Mike’s mom is as well), she gets very teary and starts worrying about HER mom. While talking with Grandpa, she just wanted the facts: Do you miss her? Do you still talk with her? Stuff like that. At some point the conversation turned to “There are no cell phones in Heaven.” LOL!


I was talking with Logan about playing at the park. I knew he’d run into one of our neighbors and I was asking how that went. He was all excited and told me he was playing with Audrey going around and around. So I asked if he was chasing Audrey or if Audrey was chasing him. He started talking, stopped suddenly, and then said, “I sayin’ it wrong!” (I still don’t know who was doing the chasing LOL!)

Last night, Logan wanted to sleep in the rocking chair (the night before it was the floor…), so I said sure since that’s where Burke and Maggie spent the first few many months of sleeping when we switched to big kid beds for them. Mike and I were watching TV downstairs when we heard “THUMP!” and then nothing. Logan had “switched” to the floor from the rocking chair a few nights ago as well, so I wasn’t too worried. When I went in to check on him, this is what I found.

I can't believe he's still asleep!

How did he not wake up??

Crazy kid. 🙂

Kiddo Conversations

Burke and Maggie were rough-housing playing this morning when the following conversation happened:

Maggie: MOMMY!!! Burke hit me in the head!!
Me: Well, tell him not to.
Maggie: BURKE!!! Not to!!!


Kiddo Conversations

I had the following conversations with my kiddos over the past few days.

Burke: Look at the clouds!
Me: Yes, it’s a little bit cloudy out today.
Burke: No. It’s a BIG bit cloudy.

Okay then.


(While watching Winnie the Pooh)
Maggie: Piglet is my favorite.
Me: Oh? Why is that, Maggie?
Maggie: Because he’s pink.

Duh, Mommy.
