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 reading about Pickles and Pord’s son running away and hiding from his hand and Inside Martyn’s Thoughts sharing his boys’ musings on the film Return to Oz and breakfast on the go.
Now that Jessica is older, we have lost many of those adorable little mispronunciations of words. Even so often though, we still get an occasional one and this week has seen a couple of new Jessica-isms appearing:
“Flaminal” = flannel. “I need my flaminal for my eyes, Daddy” (whilst having her hair washed).
“Stand-on” = the step stool that she uses to reach the sink. “No, Sophie, that’s my stand-on!”
Last week, when we were staying at Nanny’s house, she made my mum chuckle by informing her that she had to go home because “I have to say my bedtime prayers, Nanny, and I have to go home to do that, but I will come back afterwards.” Bless her. We did try and reassure her that she could say her bedtime prayers anywhere and God would still hear them!
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.
