From the mouths of babes #112 – Happiness is…

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 Le Coin de Mel’s post sharing some of the conversations she overheard on a school trip to London – especially the comment about The Shard being too small and suggestions for how to make it grow.

We’ve also had a trip into London (or “Lahn-don” as the girls like to call it – in mock Cockney voices) this weekend for a screening of the film Surf’s Up 2 which is out on DVD today. I love how we got to the end of the film and Sophie instantly said “Mummy! Pause it backwards!” I couldn’t rewind it back then but we did get a DVD to take home and enjoy.


Sophie did make my heart melt on the train heading home when she snuggled up close to me, gave me the biggest smile and said “Mummy, I’m so happy!”

“Why are you so happy?” I asked her.

“Because I love you, Mummy.”

Could a moment be any more perfect than that?



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
