From the mouths of babes #45

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. Mum Amie shared some of the loudly-asked questions from her daughter which have made her cringe at times. I loved the reminder at the end of this post that children ask these kinds of things out of curiosity and not because they are being naughty – sometimes it is easy to forget that. Thankfully Confessions of a Crummy Mummy’s daughter chose to ask why Mummy was wearing “silly pants” in the privacy of her own home – a discussion about the appeal of thongs is perhaps best avoided in public!


Sophieisms - From the mouths of babes - Little Hearts, Big Love - a weekly linky for sharing posts about the things your little ones have said

Sophie has been very chatty lately and I love her adorable sayings and mispronunciations. Here are some of the things she has said this week:


Sophie climbing up on the sofa to show me her toys:

“Dat Tag” (puts Tag down and picks up Sula) “dat Sula” (puts Sula down and gives me a big grin whilst holding her arms out wide) “Dat me!”


Sophie playing with her tea set:

“Dare’s your teacup, Mummy” (Mummy pretends to drink tea and hands back the ‘empty’ cup to Sophie who pours some more pretend tea into the cup) “Dare you go, Mummy. Dare’s your more.”


Sophie at the Remembrance Sunday service during a quiet moment in the prayers:

(Sitting on Mummy’s lap and pointing to her face) “Eyes, nose, mouth…” (unzips Mummy’s cardigan) “…boobies! Want boobies! Boobies!” (getting louder as I try to quieten her down) “Boobies Mummy! Want boobies!”

Cue a red-faced Mummy hastily taking Sophie out to the vestibule. I wasn’t quite prepared for this one given Sophie stopped breastfeeding a couple of weeks ago. On the plus side, at least she didn’t do this during the two minute silence.



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. Haha – think Baby may do that if still breastfeeding when she knows more words! At present, she just tries to get them out herself whenever she feels like it! I get given lots of imaginary tea too – so sweet! #ftmob

    1. Lol, it is funny when they get to the stage of being able to help themselves, isn’t it? 🙂

    1. There were a few people who were giggling having overheard it all – it is funny looking back but was quite embarrassing at the time! 🙂

  2. Too cute! Yes, I’ve had many pretend cups of tea, coffee and miscellaneous soups. 🙂 It is such a fun age when their vocabulary is growing faster than their pronunciation.

  3. Aww these are so cute 🙂 Can’t wait till my little man starts talking more than “mamamaaaaaaaaaaaa” and I can do this linky party too.

    1. Thanks Julie – will look forward all those wonderful toddlerisms once your little man is talking more! 🙂

  4. Haha – that’s so cute and embarrassing! You really can forgive anything when they’re so adorable can’t you? Especially when they provide a consolatory cup of imaginary tea. Thanks for hosting such a fun linky.

    1. It was funny afterwards – but very embarrassing at the time! Good job she’s so cute 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness sweetie, I feel so, soo bad… I ‘dumped’ my link on Monday! I was so eager to share it that I linked from my mobile and then forgot all about it. So sorry!

    “Dat” and “dare” are so sweet. I love it when our little ones are learning to pronounce words accurately and the result is so so much more adorable than the ‘correct’ pronunciation! I would have found English pronunciation so much easier had Sophie’s way of saying “that” and “there” had been the norm!

    Ha ha, “want boobies” is a great one to keep under your sleeve for her 18th birthday! Wriggly can’t speak that well yet, but if she could, boobies would definitely be top of her list!

  6. Aaaaah Sophie says the cutest words. “Dare’s your teacup, Mummy” sounds really really cute. The boobies part? I am out of here! Lol xx Sorry for the late commenting though, OH has designated me some assignments to finish. I will start doing my post ready for next week. xx
