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. Conversations with Hank shared a reflection about birthdays and Le Coin de Mel shared a family update. I loved Wriggly’s mispronunciation of echoes (“geckos”) and Beanie’s description of a spicy chorizo being like a city burning down in your mouth.
I love how the girls make up songs now. The other day they were singing away in the back of the car as we headed to church. The song went something like this:
“We’re driving in the car
We’re driving in the car
Ee-aye off we go
We’re driving in the car”
The rest of the verses described the journey quite well:
“We’re going up the hill…”
“We’re stopping at the lights…”
“We’re going over the bridge…”
“The traffic’s very slow…”
“We’re going through the shops…”
I quite often get a bit of a commentary from the back when we’re driving somewhere – although not usually in song form. Normally one of the girls will be telling me off if I’ve stopped – “Mummy, why aren’t you moving?” They don’t seem to understand sometimes that I can’t wave a magic wand and make the traffic in front of me disappear or make a red light turn green any quicker! Sometimes I’ll also get a “Mummy, you’re going the wrong way!” if I decide to take a different route to a known destination. If I have the sat nav on, occasionally I’ll also hear a “Hello Tom-Tom!” shouted from one of the back seats. Thankfully the Tom-Tom rarely seems to pick on the girls’ attempts to use voice activation!
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. Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can link up. I will share posts via Twitter. If you use the hashtag #ftmob I’ll also do my best to retweet them. Posts linked up will also be added to the #ftmob Pinterest board.
Looking forward to reading what your little ones have been saying!
