From the mouths of babes #67

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 Inside Martyn’s Thought’s son telling him to stop singing because “It’s an embarrassment to us as well as yourself” and Writing Bubble also made me chuckle with her three-year old’s latest sayings and “the pouch that no-one dares name”

Grumpy mummy - this week's from the mouths of babes moment - come and link up your posts about the funny or adorable things your little ones have said

One of Jessica’s favourite things is drawing pictures.  She will happily spend hours at the table drawing and there are times when it is a challenge to keep up with her paper consumption.  Last week she decided to draw a picture of Mummy.


Jessica: “This is Mummy. She’s grumpy.”
Me: “Is Mummy normally grumpy?”
J: “Yes.”
Me: “Why is Mummy grumpy?”
J: “Because she has a baby in her tummy. The baby is called Amelia.”


I’d just like to clarify that I am definitely not pregnant.  As for grumpy – well, I might not be the chirpiest person in the world first thing in the morning…! Especially not before my first cup of coffee, anyway!


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

  1. I still think that what Jess said is utterly brilliant. Where do they get their ideas from?!
    Thanks as always for running the linky!x

    1. It was funny. I still have no idea where that thought came from though! 🙂

    1. I’m not sure if they are legs or a skirt on me but yes, baby Amelia was included in the drawing! 🙂

  2. Omg I love that you have included a little ones doodle and the commentary, I think there first pictures combined with their brutal honesty are amazing! Lovely idea for a linky. Keeping lots of special moments #ftmob

    1. Thank you Jade – I loved her description of her drawing, even if I was grumpy in it – it was so funny! Glad you like the idea for the linky – I always love reading the posts about the things children say 🙂

  3. ..and I was just about to declare my congratulations to you!
    haha, how funny is that that she’s thinking about babies… someone close by has a new baby perhaps?!
    Such a funny little drawing because despite the baby looking really quite happy you do look distinctly grumpy!
    I love their imaginations, don’t you?!

    1. I have no idea where the thought came from as I only know one person who’s having a baby at the moment and she’s at the toddler group that I go to with Sophie while Jessica is at preschool so it won’t have come from that. I do love the drawing though, even if I do look very grumpy! 🙂

  4. hehehe….I may have got a little excited then! I thought you were going to announce something. lol
    I love that she has named the imaginary baby x

    1. Ah no – no announcement about to happen here! I love the fact that she gave the baby a name too! 🙂

    1. Thanks Alice – I can definitely be a bit on the grumpy side before that first cup of coffee! 🙂
