Things my toddler says....

... some of them she just shouldn't (well, maybe the once, just so I can laugh at it), others make me laugh out loud and others just make my heart melt:

C'mon mate, put your foot on it - in the car, repeating after me.  

Shit - yes, another repeating Mummy in the car incident. Needless to say, there's been a number of these and I'm desperately trying not to be quite so vocal in the car.

Grandad. Grandad. Grandad. GRANDAD. (top of her voice) can you make the tea Grandad - repeating Nanny.

I'm going to play hide and seek Mummy, under your boobies - I still don't know how this one was going to work, I mean they're big but not hide-and-seek-big.... 

T, stop being a ratbag - Yes, T gets called this when she's having a tantrum. 

That's ridiculous Nanny - Whilst I was at work, E was helping Nanny sort the washing. Some of it was to go on the line to dry and some was to go in the tumble dryer, 'that's ridiculous Nanny' was her response. 

I missed you Mummy - after I'd gone out of the room.

Why are you wearing a nappy Mummy - Sigh. The joys of having an audience when you go to the toilet. I thought the whole period talk might come a little later than the age of 2. Thankfully a brief talk was all that was required before she ran off. 

Mummy, T's being naughty -  giving me a taste of what's to come, I guess. 

Mummy, I don't want T anymore - after T had bitten her!  

Mummy,I need a cuddle - I think this is my all-time fave. 

I want to see the He-cocks - also known as peacocks, a house where my in-law's lives has quite a few that can usually be seen by the roadside and when she see them she says 'Awww, they're so cute".

Get up and make me my dinner Daddy - It did make me smile but Daddy did have to speak to her about how to ask for things nicely!

Night Night sugar plum bum - often repeated after I've said it to her!

I definitely need to start watching what I say infront of her, and T, for that matter. And I'm now dreading the days of awkward questions!  What's the funniest thing your toddler has said? 


  1. Love it! I have an almost 1 year old so I'm just waiting for him to start this phase. Ugh, they grow so fast!


  2. My folks need to watch what they say too. Kids are like sponges! #TwinklyTuesday

  3. Ha ha. You'll love having a note of these, I look back at the ones I wrote about L when he was saying funny things as you forget them for the new ones they replace them with. Though today my kid has just hit me with insults. Mummy I love cuddling you best because of your huge squishy tummy. Mummy I got a bit close to your stinky feet, but don't worry, I'm fine. Mummy should your hair look like that? All this morning!!! Cheeky git.

  4. Haha, these made me laugh! I've had a few incidents like this too! My favourite at the moment from my 2 year old is, "Mummy, you're my best friend!" She also quite often tells the puppies off using things she's heard me and her dad say, like "Do as you're told the first time I ask pups!"

  5. Such a lovely time when they are toddlers. Particularly loved the boobies one! Thanks so much for sharing and making me smile #TwinklyTuesday

  6. You need to keep adding to this list as she grows! What a fun memory for her. #twinklytuesday

  7. Haha, it is so funny when they swear at least you still have the option to spell out the wors. I can't even do that now my son spells lol X #twinklytuesday

  8. It's been too many years since mine were toddlers. I would have to go back and reread what they said.

  9. This made me giggle so much! Some I recognise from my wee one too! #TwinklyTuesday

  10. The funniest thing one of mine has ever said is 'Mummy how did Daddy put a baby in your tummy?' on a packed bus, but she wasn't a toddler at the time, more's the pity #twinklytuesday
