From the mouths of babes #38

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.  R is for Hoppit made me chuckle with The Toddler’s dress code for work and I loved Odd Socks and Lollipops‘ update on Boo at 21 months – especially some of her little sentences (“Oh no, a mess! A big mess!”) and speaking in Danish.

From the mouths of babes #38: Sophie says - Little Hearts, Big Love

I’ve been hearing two particular phrases from Sophie a lot this week – one is quite cute; the other much less so. “I lub it!” (I love it!) is something I hear many times throughout the day, in relation to a particular toy, or what is being offered for dinner or anything that she happens to want at that particular moment. Sometimes it is a complaint – for instance if Jessica won’t let Sophie play with something – “but I lub it Jess-sha!”


We have also entered the “why?” phase. That endless stream of “why?” questions, one after another, which frequently end with the same exasperated “because I said so!” response from Mummy.


Other Sophie-isms from the last week:

“Shudon” – shoes on

“Burble” – purple

“Yuck, ‘scusting!” – yuck, disgusting (nearly always said in relation to food only to be followed by Sophie merrily tucking in and announcing “I lub it!” moments later).
If you have any 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 reading what your little ones have been saying this week.


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Ha ha! My middle boy used to say “I lub you”. It was adoravle. He somehow managed to replace every v with a b and would talk about “bisiting” friends, watching a “DBD”, and so on.
    I don’t envy you with the why phase!

    1. We have DBDs too! The why phase isn’t too bad at the moment – she will usually just give me one more after I refuse to answer them and then give up 🙂

  2. Thanks for your encouragement. I think I should starting writing down my little man’s talk and join in with your linky! Such lovely memories to look back on. Oh, the ‘why’ stage … I’m not in a hurry … the joy of it all, hey. 🙂 #CommentLuv

    1. It would be lovely to hear the things he says if you do want to join in! I love it for helping me keep track of all the wonderful little things that the girls have said and reading about the things that other children say 🙂
