Out of the Mouths of Babes

Children hear things. Even when you think they’re not listening.

Children see things. Even when you think they’re not watching.

Children learn things. Even when you think they’re not paying attention.

Here’s a sample (all true) of what I have heard children say over the past few years. Some are funny. Some are revealing:

I don’t like you.

Some daddies don’t wear jammies.

Are you having another baby?iStock_000035544954Medium

It was nice meeting you.

Life isn’t fair. Just suck it up.

I’m so smart I’ll probably be in university when I’m eleven.

It’s good to meet new people.

I’m the mommy and you’re the daddy so you have to take the garbage out.

@#$%!

Children imitate what they hear and see. We are all responsible.

Share what you’ve observed.
