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!
A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. Inside Martyn’s Thoughts made me chuckle with his boys’ explanation of how we get coloured wool to make jumpers and I loved the comments that Writing Bubble’s boys gave on Twitter after their shapes were chosen for #ShapeChallenge and the confidence they gained from it.
Sophie’s speech is coming on leaps and bounds at the moment. I had a compliment from her the other day, when she came and sat on my lap, looked in my eyes and said “Mummy, you are so cute!”
We have a new Sophie-ism which I love – “bungalow darmees” (Gruffalo pyjamas). It’s one that makes all of us laugh. Jessica has been constantly asking Sophie to say “Gruffalo jarmees” and then laughing when she does. Sophie was quite happy to respond with “bungalow darmees” at first. She has now got wise to this though. Her response is rapidly changing to “No, Jess-ita! I not want to!”
At bedtime the other day, the girls wanted to turn the lights off and put Mummy and Daddy to bed on the sofas. We were quite happy to snuggle down and pretend to sleep. Sophie tucked us both in with the blanket – “go to sleep, Mummy. Go to sleep, Michael.” Hubby wasn’t quite so impressed at being called by his name rather than Daddy! Sadly any attempts at going to sleep were met with “wake up Mummy! Wake up Michael!”
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!
