Kid Quotes: Just Like Mine


Being silly with Grandpa.

One of my favorite things about being a mom is listening in on my kids’ conversations! Here are some kid quotes that made me smile recently:

Putting on a fleece hooded sweatshirt with hearts on it:
Lily (3 years old): E [a boy at school] has a shirt just like this one!
Me: Oh yeah?
Lily: Yeah. But it doesn’t have hearts on it.
Me: Is it soft like yours?
Lily: No.
Me: Does it have a hood?
Lily: Yes!



On Valentine’s Day:
Johnny (5 years old): I’m glad today is Valentine’s Day, because red is O’s favorite color. [O is a friend from school]


Emma (7 years old): I don’t like having the song “Frosty the Snowman” in my head all the time.


Playing Star Wars with their Legos:
Emma (7 years old): Come to the good side, right now! Or else go in time out.

    I love when kids say “just like mine” but the only thing that might be just like theirs would be a hood or a similar color. J often asks that we match on the weekends. We’d both wear our favorite science shirts and Stanford sweatshirts. It warms my heart.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!
