I've spent more time around children the past year than I have in my whole 20 years. They actually do say the darndest things. Here are some of my favorites.
1.“I don’t want to play with you, I’m just going to play with Jesus.”
Ouch, great start to a new babysitting gig, but seriously, the kid's priorities sound in place.
2.“There is nothing to be afraid of”
Brb crying cause this kid had no idea the literal fear in my own life when she said this about something completely unrelated. Like, really, there is nothing to be afraid of. And I really did cry. Right there.
3.“The pool is the potty the pirates pee in”
This was just really good alliteration, but three year olds don’t recognize alliteration when they say it….
4.“I’m putting this shoe on your head to make you feel better”
Um, ok, doc. Thanks?
5. When it rains... "It's raining! its pouring! The old man is snoring, he woke up and he... ate a worm!"
I guess they are rewriting nursery rhymes these days.
6. While eating pretend eggs: "These eggs are so awakening!"
I don't know what that means, but it's cute.
I'll be honest, working with kids isn't my first gift, but since I have been constantly surrounded with them for some time, I'm learning to enjoy it, and their quotes are inspiring me, to laugh that is.
