When it comes to sharing things our children say, we’re usually quick to share the “bad.” We’re always looking for a good laugh, so immediately we jump to sharing the “inappropriate,” or the “embarrassing” comments our children make.
While our kids are usually stirring up trouble and looking for their next “mission to destroy mom and dads day,” there is a softer side to our babies that we don’t usually let the world see. But, recently, BuzzFeed asked their users to share the “cutest” thing their kid has ever said to them, and, it’ll make you think back to those moments with your own children that you often times let slip away.
When my mom was pregnant with me, my oldest sister said to her “Mommy, when the baby is born and she cries, you don’t have to go to her, I will do that for you.” My parents found it so adorable they put it in my birth card. She was 3 years old.
A few years ago, I was leaving from my aunts house and my 3 year old nephew said ‘my real friend, stay here!’ and started crying and my heart melted because I finally felt like someone actually liked me for me, sometimes it matters more than you think when something small like that happens.
My 8 yr old son: This is my baby sister. She has autism. It doesn’t make her different. It makes her extra special.
At 2 years old, my son would say “banana na na banana na na.” Me and his grandma thought he wanted bananas but he never really ate them. After awhile, we realized he was singing “Havana” by Camila Cabello
For about a six month period of time when my son was 2 years old, he would call me “honey” because that’s what my husband calls me. I can remember being in the store and him saying “oh honey this” and “honey that”—everyone around us couldn’t help but smile. It was adorable.
When my daughter was 4 we took her to Disney on a family vacation. The first day she walked all over the park having a great time. By the end of the day she was getting tired of walking so she looked up at my dad and said “Poppy I has bendy legs!”
“I can’t life that because I don’t have enough strongs”- my 4 year old explaining why he can’t lift something heavy.
I was getting my kids in the car for daycare when we saw an injured bird in our yard. While I took the kids my husband went out to get the bird. My three year old son asked me what would happen to the bird and I told him we were going to take it to a nature center so it could be seen by a doctor and he said “Thanks Mama that’s such a great place for him. That’s a really good idea I love you”
My nephew called out for his little sister “honey? Where you are?”
After asking my three year old to clean up she replied “No thank you”
5 yo kid: “I can’t find my backpack.”
Me: “Where’s the last place you saw it?”
Kid: “On my back!”
When my daughter was about 2.5 she kept trying to climb the stairs alone (the way our stairs are a baby gate won’t really fit). One day I caught her and I said “are you on the stairs alone?” She goes “no”…I said “are you lying?” And she heard “are you a lion” and roared at me.
My niece, whom is adopted says to her momma (my sister) out of nowhere “you’re God’s gift to me, a little peace of heaven just for me”
For a few years now, my 8 year old has said “I love you more than you love me, true or false? True!”
My daughter, age 2: *pats daddy on the head* “He’s a good boy.”
My 6 year old nephew, after being sent to his room for having a tantrum, put the following sign on his door after he cooled down: “You can come in now. I’ve found my temper.”
My husband was play fighting with my then 3 year old son and told him “You’re going down sucker!” My son’s reply-“Well, you’re going down lollipop!”
Ethan (16): “Lennon, do you like butts?”
Ethan: “Do you like girls?”
Ethan: “Well, what do you like?”
My daughter at age 4 said,”Mommy, I love you more than ice-cream, and Daddy, I love you more than astroids!”
My son puckered up for a kiss from his aunt and as she leaned in, he grabbed her face and said “don’t ever punch me and I won’t ever punch you.”
My son the other day in the car told me, “Mommy, you make me laugh!”
Me: “Well, you make ME laugh! You know who else makes me laugh?” (Going for the answer of his little sister)
Him: “Daddy! When he toots!”
My 2 year old just said this the other day: eyes broken. They were watering cause she was sick and tired. So cute!
