From the mouths of babes #106 – Chatting with Sophie

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!


Thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I loved Little Steps‘ post about her daughter asking about her day and wanting to celebrate love and OMG It’s a Girl made me laugh with his daughter’s reaction to her new Hello Kitty pillow.

Sophie is becoming chattier by the day and I love the little conversations she has with me. When she first started preschool, she would say “nothing!” when I asked her what she’d done. I wasn’t too surprised – I’d learned from Jessica’s time at preschool that what happens at preschool stays at preschool and assumed it would be the same with Sophie. I’m quite glad that she’s starting to prove me wrong on this one! Now when I pick her up, she’ll tell me a little about what she did at “gool” – whether she played outside, or with the puzzles and what she had for “nack”. It’s so lovely to hear her chattering about her morning.


She had a bit of a wobble at the beginning of her second week and sobbed all the way to preschool. Thankfully I had a much smilier girl at pick-up time – helped by the fact it was someone’s birthday and she had been given a lollipop to take home. The only problem is that now when I pick her up, she looks confused and says “I haven’t got a lolly today!” I keep trying to explain that she won’t get sweets every time she goes to preschool but she remains hopeful all the same!


One of the things she enjoys doing is pairing things up to make “a match” She got quite cross with me the other day when she noticed I was wearing odd socks: “They’re not a match, Mummy! You need to ask Father Christmas for one and then you will have a match!”


She loves seeing the Count from Sesame Street on the ad for Furchester Hotel on CBeebies. It made me chuckle when I heard her counting in the style of the Count.



The thing I love most though about Sophie is just how loving and affectionate she is. She will frequently launch herself at me several times a day and give me the biggest squeeze: “aww, I love you Mummy!” If I tell her “I love you more” she will reply with “No, I love you more!” I also get the most wonderful compliments – to be given a big kiss and be told with the most adorable little smile “you’re so beautiful Mummy, I love you very much!” is the best feeling in the world.
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!


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Oh this is so sweet! I love how affectionate our children can be – it makes up for all the times they’re throwing a tantrum 🙂 I’d be happier at the end of the day if someone gave me a lollipop too! #FTMOB x

    1. Thank you. The lovely moments do make up for the challenging ones! Sophie still asks about lollipops on preschool days!

    1. Thank you Kate. She’s still quite hopeful that lollies will be handed out at the end of preschool each day she goes there! 🙂

    1. Matching things is fine. Most of the time I don’t mind being a climbing frame – although it can get quite uncomfortable at times with those little knees and elbows not being too careful!
