7 Classic Conversations with my Cutie Pie

Kid’s say the darndest things, don’t they?

I’ve started recording some of the gorgeous chats I’ve had with young Benjamin lately, because I want to keep these gems forever.

Here are a few recent conversations:

  1. My heart melted when Benjamin piped up the other day, “Mommy, you’re my Best Friend!”  Just before it could go to my head, I overheard him telling his toys with just as much emphasis, “Lightning McQueen, you’re my Best Friend! Green quad bike, you’re my Best Friend!  Well, at least I rank right up there with his favourite toys.
  2. I arrive home with a few groceries, and Ben says: “Mom, have you got a ‘prise for me.” (His word for surprise). I take a little packet of mini biscuits out the shopping bag, and he says with disgust, “That’s not a ‘prise, that’s biscuits!” I explain that I only went to the grocery store for a couple of things, and ask, “What kind of surprise were you hoping for?” Ben says: “I’ll give you a clue… a motor bike!” Of course he means the toy variety (thank heavens).
  3. During a feed, while Ben is swopping from one side to the other, he pauses just long enough to say, “Duuuhlicious!
  4. Ben wakes up in the morning, and I can see he’s in deep thought, so I ask him what he’s thinking about and he says, “Mommy’s milk.
  5. We get in the car after a trip to the shopping mall, and I ask Ben if he’s tired.  He says, “No, I not tired, I just happy. Mommy, you make me sooo happy.” 
  6. Ben has a short coughing fit. Concerned that he might be choking on something, I ask if he’s okay. He says, nonchalantly I fine. I just coughing.
  7. On our walks, Benjamin has picked up my habit of looking out for cars when crossing the road. I find it so adorable when he says, “Careful Mommy, there’s a car coming.

Would love to hear some of your children’s classic gems…  please go ahead and leave a comment.

  1. Children are such a blessing! I loved reading all your babes little witty remarks. I have four boys and sweet girl. And I am always amazed at what comes from there mouth. Naturally I can’t think of something at the moment. And most of them are only funny to me. My one five year old son CJ has a great laugh. It is genuine and deep and loud. Oh yeah. One time I had a friend picking up my 9 year old to take him to play. CJ really wanted to go and asked my friend if he could. She said yes but he was still in underpants and a t-shirt (it was before lunch 🙂 and he hollered out “I NEED PANTS!!” Too funny those boys :0

    I can’t wait to read the book about breastfeeding. What a great encouragement to women it will be.

    1. Hi Caroline, thank you so much for your gorgeous comment, had a good giggle. Wow, 4 boys and a girl – you must be one busy Mommy! Really appreciate you taking the time to stop by my site again.
