S/O Kids Say the Sweetest Things
« on: July 11, 2014, 04:57:42 AM »
DS has just started saying "I love you Mummy and Daddy".
 
So far the sweetest things he has said to me include:

"Mine Mummy is fan-TAS-tic" (I bought him an ice cream)
"I do love you Mummy, I do. I have biscuit?"
"Mummy? Mummy you special, Mummy.  I want biscuit." (Yes, he's good.)
"Daddy, I love you, I do. I need you."
 
What are the sweetest things your kids or kids you know have said to you?
 
 
Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

When I helped my nieces resolve an argument, and one of them said, "Oh Aunt Samihami, you are the best!"

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

Apparently when my friend's daughter was 9 years old she said "When I grow up I want to be just like Aunt Hurricane.  I want....NO KIDS....and my own cool place....with all my own cool stuff.....just like Aunt Hurricane." 

So I told her to stay in school.  ;D

It's fun to be the cool aunt, isn't it.   :)

When I wore a pretty skirt to church my little guy said "OOoh! Boo-ih-ful, Mommy!" <3  My middle child often tells me I still look like a teenager and I ask "What do you want" jokingly before saying thank you. :)   My older two boys have told me they love my hugs. :)

DS (16) is at the breaking away stage, but isn't quite organized enough to have everything together yet.

He sent me a text message Thursday, asking for a copy of his passport to be sent, so he could use it to cash his paycheck at the bank. I sent it, and received a "thanks, Mom" then later a "you're the best". From a non-effusive 16 year old, that is pretty awesome. He was also very excited about the kind of car we rented for our upcoming trip, I'm not sure why.

DS is 3 but very restricted on speech.

So it was a great and gratifying surprise yesterday when he and I bought a new mattress for his toddler bed, and when he saw me putting it into the car this convo ensued:

DS: "Me?"
Me: "Yes, a new cushion for your bed."
DS: "Mine? Mommy tay'you." (Thank you)
Followed by big hug.
