From the mouths of babes #23

From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!


A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I loved One More Dad Blog’s daughter’s assertion that she needed her beauty sleep and Growing Wild Ones’ list of funny things that her kids have said lately – Mommy’s always right, Daddy’s always pooping and the baby’s made of “Bones ‘n’ Blood”.

If you fancy joining in and asking your children the same 23 questions, I’d love it if you could link back here so I can see your children’s responses too. If you have any other posts about something that your children have been saying lately, please do come and link up. The linky opens each Monday from 6am and closes on Friday at 11pm so there is plenty of time to link up your posts (old and new posts are welcome!). Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can also link up (the badge code is below). I will also try and share posts via Twitter – please use the hashtag #ftmob and I’ll do my best to retweet them. I also have a Pinterest board and will be sharing posts here too.

Looking forward to hearing what your little ones have been saying.

    1. Thank you Renee – would love to hear what answers your girls would give to those questions 🙂

  1. Oh, Jessica’s replies are priceless! I laughed out loud at a fair few of themI love you being a little boy as a child! And all the answers to do with stickers, and the straightforwardness of the ‘I am Jessica’ answer! What a little star. I might give this ago myself. x

    1. Thank you Maddy – the comment about me being a little boy did make me chuckle! Would love to hear what responses you get 🙂

  2. Aaaw I’ve always been thinking to link with this linky, Louies but I always keep forget to do so. 🙁 I won’t this time.
    I was reading the questions and Jessica’s answers to Olivia and she is giggling. Jessica is so cute, she said. We’ve done this meme during mother’s day but, I uploaded it on youtube and I am about to grab and link it here too. xx

    1. Glad Olivia liked Jessica’s answers – I loved Olivia’s responses – what an adorable little interviewee she is! 🙂

  3. I’ve been meaning to do this meme with Ava. Haha, your daughters answers made me laugh – I love that you were a boy as a child and your favourite thing to do is go to playgroup! Is it really?! Great post xx

    1. Would love to hear what Ava’s responses are! Playgroup is fun – I get to chat to other mums and drink coffee but it’s not quite up there with a day at a spa! 🙂

  4. I love, love, love this! You seem pretty good with stickers. Doing a reward chart by any chance? That’s such a sweet set of questions. Al her answers are quite cute, and show that she’s got a loving mummy (who loves to go to playgoup) xxx

    1. Thanks Mel – we’re starting to encourage the potty so that probably accounts for Jessica’s sticker obsession! 🙂
