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. A Strong Coffee made me chuckle with her little man’s alternative means of displaying affection after his declaration that he “no like kisses from boys” – her post shares not just a #ftmob moment but also one of those phrases that you find yourself saying as a parent that you never ever could have imagined yourself saying. I also loved Birds and Lilies‘ list of the latest things that Ava has been saying – particularly her comment about “you’ll bring the good and I’ll bring the crazy” – the list of sayings is certainly a fabulous mixture of both good and crazy!
It’s the little things that the girls say that make me smile and there have been a few this week that I have loved.
Sophie giving herself a round of applause on managing to do a four-piece jigsaw with a very proud: “Ta-da! Well done me!”
Sophie opening her cards and presents on her birthday and her wide-eyed “oh wow!” each time she caught a glimpse of what was behind the wrapping paper. I also loved the way that she studied each card so intently before handing it to the nearest person and requesting that they “read it!”
Overhearing Jessica trying to teach Sophie French:
“Look Sophie, un manteau and un chapeau”
As they were playing with dollies, I thought she might be using the dolls’ clothes to demonstrate but no, she was holding up a couple of plastic bowls instead. So much for me thinking that my child had suddenly become a linguistic genius. Although it is entirely possible that a bowl could become un chapeau…
The squeals of excitement from both girls when pulling up outside the carvery and Sophie’s delighted shout:
“Hooray! I love dinner!”
I had fed them that day, honest!
The latest adorable Sophie-ism: “tee-tall” for “turtle”.
And my favourite moment of the week has been the repeated grabbing my face, looking into my eyes and declaring “luz you, Mummy”. Sophie does this a lot at the moment and I absolutely love it. Hubby has also had his fair share of adoring “luz you, Daddy” moments too.
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.
