From the mouths of babes #135 – Riding on Daddy’s shoulders

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 Northumberland Mam’s post about the things her girls have said recently – especially her teen describing her as being “nearly cool.”

The girls like to be carried on Daddy’s shoulders. Sometimes it takes a while to negotiate who goes first when they both want to be carried at the same time and we have to persuade them to take turns. Sophie came out with this gem the other day when we were trying to negotiate:

“We can’t both ride on Daddy’s shoulders, Jessica! Daddy only has one head!”



The weather was cold and wet on our recent visit to Peppa Pig World. Jessica gets cold very quickly because of her special heart. It took a few layers before we eventually managed to get her warmed up quickly but at one point she was so cold that her teeth were chattering.

“Mummy,” she said, “I wish we could get something to put over my teeth as well. Maybe then they wouldn’t get so cold and start chattering!”


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
