From the mouths of babes – March 2019

From the mouths of babes is my monthly post capturing some of the things my children say. It originally started as a weekly linky but as this gradually fizzled out, I stopped recording those little sayings and found I missed it. One of the things that I love about my blog is that it has captured so many little moments that I might otherwise have forgotten about. This little round-up is my way of capturing some more of them.

Sophie says…

“Jessica died. But we didn’t die. We stayed undead.”


Me: “Sophie, please don’t turn on the light [in the back of the car]. It makes it harder to see out of the windscreen.”

S: “Don’t worry, Mummy. You just concentrate on driving. I’ll let you know if you’re going to bump into anything.”


“Nits are like spiders but they’re in your hair. They have legs like spiders and teeth like vampires.”


“Are you going to put Thomas in his growing bib?” (She meant babygro!)


[While reading a book about fish] “That’s the fin. It’s fin, not thick.” I’m still not sure I’ve managed to get her to grasp that ‘thin’ and ‘fin’ are two very different things!



Thomas talks…

Thomas is getting very chatty which is lovely! It’s mostly “ba-ba” sounds or “hi-ya-ya” but he occasionally says “um-mum” which is lovely – not that it seems to be particularly directed at me! The girls both said “mum” before “da” too!


Memories of Jessica

I used to record the little milestones and memories of the girls’ early years using an app on my phone called Tweekaboo. This app is now being discontinued and I’ve downloaded the data on to my computer to save it there. It was lovely to look back over some of the memories I captured – one of which was this little video of a very small Jessica playing peek-a-boo with her reflection.



Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Louise,

    Thanks for sharing such a charming video of Jessica as a toddler.
    I wasn’t aware of Tweekaboo, but if it’s being discontinued that’s a reminder that we need to be careful. Storing your memories digitally isn’t necessarily safer than storing them on analogue media — it all depends!

    1. Thank you – it is a good reminder that digital memories aren’t necessarily safer. I mostly used the app as a way to quickly jot down the milestones and then recorded most of them in the baby book later when I had time to do so!
