From the mouths of babes #8

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. Perhaps they have just started babbling for the first time, or said their first definite word. It could be something cute, or funny, or incredibly embarrassing – whatever it is, I’d love to hear all about it.


Thank you so much to everyone who linked up last week – I really enjoyed reading all your posts about the things that your little ones have been saying – the embarrassing and funny things and the adorable moments. Hope from a Butterfly’s eldest daughter crying happy tears at being blessed with a little sister made my heart melt as did the post from The Reading Residence sharing a list from her five year old about what makes her a good mummy.

From the mouths of babes #8: The Princess & the Duck - Little Hearts, Big LoveWe’ve been having some wonderful moments with Jessica dressing up and getting glimpses into her imaginary world over half-term. Here are a few of them:


Jessica: “I’m a fairy princess. Sophie – you be a fairy princess too and Grandma, you be the Queen and Mummy, you be the duck.”

I can’t help feeling that I drew the short straw there! We’ve done some dressing up a couple of times since and each time, Jessica has insisted that I be the duck. I have absolutely no idea why her imaginary princess world includes a duck, but there you go.


Jessica (waving her fairy wand about): “I’m waving my magic wand to make some buttons” (of the chocolate variety)

(Waves magic wand around and then frowns and hands it to Grandma.

“Grandma, make it work!”


Grandma (to Jessica who is looking out of the window): “What are you looking at?”

Jessica: “Trees”

Grandma: “Are there any tigers in the trees?”

Jessica (in a ‘don’t be silly Grandma voice’): “No Grandma. Not tigers.  Monkeys. They hungry. They have no bananas.”


If you’d like to share your posts about something your children have said (or sung!), then please add the badge code below and link up with me. 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!). 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.

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


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Love how mummy is always the queen, the kids sure know how to play up to our egos don’t they 😉 great imagination too, my 3yo says she sees animals out of train windows often elicits giggles from the other passengers. Sweet post x

  2. Tee hee – love how you get to be the ‘duck’! If Jessica (or grandma) works out how to make her wand make chocolate buttons appear, please share her secret wont you! xx

  3. Aww this is so cute, hehe it’s great isn’t it., you get to be the duck…. well there are worse things I suppose hehe.
    Oh yes! You have to share the secret if Jessica gets her magic chocolate button wand working!

    Love this linky, the posts are just fantastic, hilarious, cute, gorgeous – thank you for hosting

  4. Who doesn’t love fairy princesses! Bwahaha, you ended up as a duck. Brilliant! I love reading your posts every week. xx

    1. Thank you Mel – I still haven’t managed to be upgraded from being a duck yet though! 🙂

  5. Ducks are very important IMO 🙂 This is really cute. My LO’s current cute moment is saying “of course you can mummy” when I ask him for something. I’ve also added a post to your linky with stuff he’s said when he’s been annoyed with me this week. Hope that’s okay – it’s quite funny! #pocolo

    1. Oh that is adorable – Jessica likes to say this too and it sounds so cute being said by a little one. Thank you for linking up this week 🙂

  6. Lucas says – I imagine that the Mother will be linking up to this very soon given her FB statuses are ALWAYS about the things I say!!! Great idea as we’re fully of awesome little things to say!! #pocolo

    1. Would be lovely to have you join in and look forward to hearing some of your awesome sayings 🙂

  7. Oh the things kids say……………… Lucas has a million of them!! Personal favourite is Lucas asking for ‘cock porn’ when he meant ‘pop-corn’!!!! *sigh* #pocolo

    1. Lol, ‘cock porn’ made me chuckle although I can imagine it must be somewhat embarrassing if shouted in public!

    1. I do love the things children say – chatting with my little ones makes me feel better too 🙂

  8. Bless her, I love how kids play and chat. Grace too thinks that her Granny can solve everything – I seem to take second place to her! I think it is because Grace can wrap her round her finger 😉 Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo x

    1. Ah how lovely that Grace thinks her Granny can solve everything too! Lovely to link up again 🙂
