From the mouths of babes #120 – A caring big sister

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 Our Cherry Tree’s daughter declaring that she would like to be an ice cream lady – there will always be people who want ice-cream!


Jessica and Sophie having a cuddle: "From the mouths of babes #120 - A caring big sister"


Hubby often has to work away on events. The girls have got used to Daddy being away although they miss him not being around. Last week he was away for the first part of the week working on a big event. As he left, he reassured the girls that he would be home in two more sleeps. Jessica clearly felt I was in need of some reassurance too later that morning.


“Don’t worry, Mummy. Daddy will be home in two more sleeps. Two more sleeps. That’s not very long, is it? Sometimes Daddy is away for ten sleeps. That’s a long time.”


Unfortunately Sophie was unwell while Daddy was away. Jessica was so kind and caring though. She was such a help in the middle of the night, fetching clean pyjamas and towels for her little sister. “It’s okay, Sophie, it can always be washed!” It was lovely to see her fussing over Sophie, giving her toys and things to help make her feel better. I think Sophie was somewhat relieved to be left alone for a while though once Jessica was at school!


It does make me chuckle to see Jessica embracing her big sister role and playing “mummy” at times. Sometimes she doesn’t quite have the right approach though – as with this approach to bath time discipline: “If the kid doesn’t do what you want, you just throw water all over them!”



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
