From the mouths of babes #59

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. I loved One Man and His Sprog’s post about funny things his daughter has said – calling Woody “Loggy” was my favourite – and Life is Knutts’ son’s theory of how girls are made.

My little parrot - From the mouths of babes #59 - Little Hearts, Big Love

Jessica can be a bit of a parrot at times which is very funny. Thankfully she hasn’t picked up any of the things I’ve let slip in front of her that I would prefer weren’t repeated but it is funny to hear some of my words spoken by a four-year old!


“Sophie, you’re two! Use your spoon!”

“It’s okay, Mummy, my cardigan can be washed!” (after getting chocolate cake all over her clothes)

“No Sophie. And please don’t ask me again!”

“Come on Sophie, it’s tidy-up time!”

“Thank you, Sophie. You’re so helpful!”

“Are you okay, my darling?”


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!

  1. So cute. I can hear myself in some of the things Freya comes out with too. Thankfully she hasn’t picked up anything bad..yet 🙂

    1. Thanks Tara – it is funny when they repeat the things you say (apart from when it is the stuff you know you shouldn’t have said in front of them!) Glad Freya has yet to pick up any of that either! 🙂

  2. Those are adorable! We get the parroting too & I love it! We also get a lot of ‘are you okay, my darling’ – that must be a universal mummy phrase for them to pick up! Thanks for hosting! #ftmob

    1. Thank you – I love that The Toddler also asks that – it sounds so adorable coming from a little one 🙂
