1 quotes or expressions coined by children; mainly mine: 4-year-olds make the best kidisms.
I started sharing kidisms a couple years ago. Some things that are uttered out of the mouths of babes are just too good to keep to oneself, plus I don't want to forget them. I thought jotting them down on the ol' bloggeroo was a good place to document.
* A few days ago, 4-year-old was quietly looking at the address numbers on our house for quite some time. Then she finally said, "That says our house is worth $14."
* Today at a special breakfast out, 4-year-old looked up and exclaimed, "You guys are the best family I ever had."
The Good Lord only knows what might be said next. The kicker will be who it's said to and where it's spoken. I am praying for grace. Some kidisms are... less than polite. I leave you with this last one as an example: It was about 5 years ago at Costco. Again, it was a 4-year-old. We were standing in line and the woman behind us who obviously came straight from the gym started up a conversation with my little girl. Everything was fine and cute until 4-year-old asked, "Where is your shirt?" She was wearing a sports bra/top/thingy. I nervously laughed and said, "Obviously it's been a while [as in never] since she's seen her mommy in gym clothes [that shows tummy]." My heart is anxiously racing just recalling that story. I need to find my happy place. Now.
It is bright and happy outside, and we're dragging the family out for a lovely garden/yard workday and they WILL enjoy it. ;)
