Sophie wearing her "Sister of a heart hero" t-shirt - "From the mouths of babes - September 2018"


Sophie says… September 2018

Here are some of the things Sophie has been saying recently



Graggalation – graduation (from preschool)


Sophie on marriage

“Mummy you have a ring because you got married by Daddy. You went to a ball and then you got married. Then you came home to us and we saw your ring and asked you “where did you get that ring?” and you told us you went to a ball.”


Sophie on bodily functions

“Everybody pumps. Their bottoms go pop-pop-pop.”


Sophie on her siblings

Sophie can be quite blunt when it comes to talking about Jessica’s death and burial. This can be hard for us to hear at times although we know that she doesn’t do it to upset us. It’s just that she is four and does not filter her words. She will talk to her sister when we visit Jessica’s forever bed and tells her about what she has been doing. Sophie will also happily tell people about her sister when out and about and I love that she often talks about Jessica in the present tense. Every so often, she will come out with something that makes my heart melt, such as the following:

“Jessica’s my favourite hero because I love her.”


The way she introduced her siblings one day when I answered the door with Thomas in my arms made me smile. Sophie came up to the door with Jessica’s photo cushion in her arms.

“This is my baby brother Thomas. And this is Jessica. She’s my sister but she can’t talk.”


Looking forward to reading what your little ones have been saying!


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. I was at an antenatal visit in the home of a client, her 2 year old, who is the cutest little creature alive, was happily playing while we were talking. He comes over to show me his trains but we were focussed on our discussion. This sweet little voice piped up “smooosme” it was the cutest thing ever and his mum said he had never said it before.

  2. When my 4 year old niece passed away, her 6 year old brother went to the chapel to say his goodbyes, he looked at her and said, “mummy why is Sarah grey”, before his mum could answer he said, “ I know, all her colours are in the sky waiting to make a rainbow” little seeetheart

    1. Aww Pippa that is so beautiful. I love the thought of Jessica’s colours in the sky making rainbows too. I shall think of her and Sarah whenever I see one now x

  3. “Graggalation” made me aww. Sophie sounds like such a sweetheart. Maybe we should all be a bit more like her when talking about our loved ones?

    1. She is such a sweetheart. I love some of the things she says. Thank you for linking up 🙂
