At Sunday dinner this weekend, my 3-yr-old daughter was explaining the story of Christmas to me. That Christmas is Baby Jesus's birthday, and his mother is Mary, and he was born. That we have a birthday party for Baby Jesus with lots of presents. and beautiful trees and angels.

It was quite muddled, but adorable. Clearly she's been listening, and not just to the stories of Santa and Rudolph.

My 4 year old asked me why we say "amen" at the end of a prayer instead of just say "man", why do we say "a man"? It's funny what they hear sometimes.

I can't wait to tell my son, when he is an adult, how he used to call me into the room in the morning to show me that his pee pee was standing up. I could hardly contain myself when he told me that sometimes it stands up when he rubs it. My response: yes honey its done that since you were born. You are just noticing it. Luckily, I didn't get a "why?" That question is reserved for daddy.

On Sunday, our eldest son phoned to talk to Husband. He was a bit bored and in a peevish mood. We decided that a phone call from the Tot Monsters would cheer him up a bit. My Husband said to the twins: "Would you like to phone Mark? He's sad and needs cheering up."

My little Paulina-Tyrantina turned to me and said, "Mummy, we have to call Mark. He's mis-er-a-ble and we have to make him happy."

I had no idea that my 2 1/2 year old daughter knew the word miserable, let alone how to use it in a sentence. I was blown away.

It is soooo fun to cook with them. Grace always asks "Mommy can I help you?" and tries to slide over a big chair to stand on.


A few days ago I had Grace's cup in one hand, her snack in the other, and Grace was standing to my right near the back door. I turned my head to the left because I could not contain the sneeze that was coming. I didn't realize that Grace didn't know that it is called a sneeze..... Light was coming in the backdoor highlighting all the "particles" in the air. Grace looked over and said "Mommy, you blessed you all over the floor!"

@SonyaSparkle, Grace sounds just adorable.

My little Paulina-Tyrantina was "helping" me to make breakfast this weekend, and managed to get maple syrup all over her hands and arms. I handed her a damp washcloth, and she shouted, "Mummy to the Rescue!"

Grace grabbed my hand and dragged me to the front door and out onto the porch. She pointed up at the sky and said "Mommy, Mommy, God made the moon. See!" So I listed for her some other things God made - the stars, the sun. Then she got really excited and put both her hands on her chest. She leaned forward with her eyes opened wide and and this huge grin on her face and said "and God made Gracie"

Grace tries to recreate her home movies of when she did something cute that I already filmed and posted to facebook and youtube. She has watched them so often that she asks me to go get the camera and then she does whatever it was all over again.

Hi all! New here. My four year old has some doozies. Having worked in early childhood education for 25 + years, I wanted to be sure my son learned the correct names for his genitalia. He can say penis just fine, but testicles comes out "text cicles" Just the other night he was having a meltdown because Daddy told him it was time for bed, he began to sass his Daddy... back and forth it went. He ended up telling us that he was crying because Daddy hurt his feelings. I asked "Don't you think you hurt Daddy's feelings talking back to him?" His reply? No, Daddy's not crying!! and I am!!

Many years ago when I was a live-in nanny, the little boy I took care of could not say "Grilled Cheese" he said Gorilla Cheese...I have called it that ever since.

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind!"

Last night, my husband and I got home late from a meeting and our babysitter had already put the twins to bed.

I could hear my little daughter's voice down the hall, saying: "Mummy-and-Daddy-and-Basil-and-Alex-and-Ma
rk-and-Bunny-and-blanket-and-bear..."

I realized that she was saying her bed time prayers. Since my husband and I weren't there to say the prayers with them, my little Miss Independence was saying them herself. I just melted.

My three year old calls triangles" trine angels".
Last summer we had to switch sitters because our old one was moving. Her name was Jamie and the new one was Amy -- a little confusing to a 2 year old. She kept calling the new sitter Jamie, to which I would say "That's not Jamie, that's Amy." After a few times of saying that, she then started calling the new sitter "Not Jamie". lol It took her a few months to get it all figured out because she really liked the old sitter and we still go for a visit from time to time.

My 4 yo asked what my favorite colors where to which I replied greens and blues. He then stated no they were pink and purple because those are girl colors. Later also stated my favorite ice cream could not be chocolate it was strawberry; probably also related to the color issue.
