Where do kids get this stuff?

This is another story about one of my children.......

Last week I came back from the grocery store just as my kids were about to have dinner.  I had brought candy corn home with me.  Of course they noticed the candy corn and were no longer interested in nutrition.  I indicated that they had to have dinner first, then candy corn.  My son (who is 3) says "but mommy, my body is yearning for the candy corn".

Where do they get this stuff?

Stacey-Ann - Aren't kids great? They do say the most surprising things...  You should write them down in a book so that you can look back at it when they get older...   :)

That's very cute!  My body is yearning for nachos right now, it's almost lunch time.  Thanks for the laugh, kids are so funny.

We had an older dog a few years ago who had a seizure.  I had to leave my grandmother and daughter home alone with him & was giving them instructions on what to do/not do if it happened again.  My daughter said, "But mom, what if he's gone rogue?"  what????  lol

I love the off-the-wall things kids will think of to say.  It never ceases to amaze me how intelligent children are.  I bet some adults don't know how to properly use the word yearning.  Thanks for sharing!

That is the FUNNIEST short post I have read yet.  I can just picture the kid saying this!  I don't know where they get it.  They learn a word and they need to use it, and it just happens to be placed in a particularly funny place.  My husband dressed up in a scary costume a few days ago while I was babysitting my niece.  My niece, Ivy, was a little amused, but mostly scared when she said, "Uncle Josh, please show me your face, I NEED to see your face."  It was an amzing thing to come out of a 2 1/2 year old's mouth because hse was expressing her fear of the mask.

Stacey-Ann, kids have this amazing ability to pick up on the oddest lines that we say.  I'm sure he must have heard mommy or daddy use it in some different context.  My boyfriend's niece is is 9 y/o, but she talks and acts like she's 15 y/o.  I'm utterly astounded by our kids' intelligence!  And I'm sure your son's got mommy's brilliant genes!

Hi Stacey-Ann,

It is funny, they listen so well when you don't always want them to. :)

All the best!

Stacey-Ann, my daughter is three also, so I understand the quirky comments.  I'm pregnant with number two and she keeps telling everyone I swallowed her baby brother or sister.  Then she assures everyone that the baby is ok because I didn't use my teeth when I ate him/her.

Then there was the evening she asked me to open my mouth so she could see the baby.  I have dozens of stories, and we still have five months to go!

That is so cute. I miss my kids being that little. Enjoy all those precious moments as I can tell you do.

So much nicer than just "I want". How stinkin' cute he must be.

I know just what you mean!  I've got a 4 year old and an 11 year old, both boys.  So, there's no telling what they'll say!!
