Silly things that kids say

Here is a compilation of some of the silly and hilarious things that my kids say, I’ll keep it updated.

On Aug 18th, 2017:

Let me give this one a little context… Livey has recently changed classes at daycare, going from the stars to the ladybugs. Her educator has been telling her she’s a big girl and using her height as a measuring stick with how much of a ‘big’ girl she is becoming.

Bee was playing with little pieces of Lego and Livey was trying to get involved. Mom told her that it was for big girls and the pieces were a little too big for her and this is what she said.

Livey: …but mommy I am a big girl!
Livey: …but I can reach the shelf!
Livey: …but I’m a LADYBUG!!!!

Bee was playing with her pretend food and putting it all in a backpack.

Dad: Wait take that brown one back out, what is it?
Bee: I dunno what this is…
Dad: It’s a chicken drumstick.

She laughed and walked away. A few seconds later she called me from across the room and said “Like this daddy?“. She was using the drumstick to hit the music toy with the drums on it!

I then tried to explain to her that a Chicken Drumstick and an actual Drumstick are not quite the same thing. She was very confused….

(I will preface this with the fact that my kids have been obsessed with the trolls music and the Justin Timberlake song. Also Livey’s teacher had told me a story about getting stuck in the mud at daycare while playing in a puddle.)

Dad: Livey tell mommy what happened today at today
Livey: …
Dad: Tell mommy.
Livey: …
Dad: “I got…”
Livey: … I got .. that sunshine in my pocket!

( In case you missed it these are the lyrics to the song Can’t Stop the Feeling)

Bee : (After I’ve just put a table cloth on the table before supper) “But daddy I wanted to clean off the table, Livey just blessyoued all over the table!”

First Post – Where do we begin?

My little family started 4 years ago and we’ve gone through so much in so little time. At the end of every day my wife and I collapse on the couch and give each other this look that says “We survived another day.”

Our 3 little princesses, Bee, Livey and Brella are adorable and a handful. Bee is an outgoing, constantly moving, energetic 4 year old. Livey is an assertive, silly 2 year old, constantly hoping around like a bunny. And Brella is 5 months old, still trying to find her own space in this silly family.

My wife and I constantly find ourselves telling stories to our friends and family about all of the hilarious and ridiculous situations our kids get into so I thought that this would be a great place to put all of those stories for everyone to hear.

I am by no means an expert in the world of parenting or being a father, but in 4 years of changing diapers, dealing with tantrums and holding back proud tears, I think I’ve learned a few things and picked up a few tricks, so maybe I can pass on some of that wisdom.

I hope you enjoy the stories and would love for you to leave you own stories in the comments.
