TinyTalk Tuesday

The tiny ones in this house are talking and here is what they said this week:

(If you wish to participate, please sign the Mr. Linky below and refer to the guidelines if you are new to Tiny Talk Tues)
(heard during our 14 hour car drive)
T (age 3): Look K, there are trees out my window.
K (age 4): Yep, there are trees out my window too.
T: NO, there are trees out my window.
K: (trying to be rational) Yes, T, I know, but there are trees out my window too.
T: NNNNOOOOO! The trees are out my window.
K: (getting loud) Yes there are, but look, there are some out my window.
(did I mention we still have the 14 hour ride home?)
The devotion we do with the girls before bed posed the question, "What do you try to do that is hard for you?" I asked them and K (age 4) got a funny look on her face. Very quietly she said, "I try to do things and be like mommy." (so cute) So I asked her, "What do you want to do that mommy does?" She answered, "I want to cook!"
(we can definitely arrange that)
Sometimes I don't make sense to them:

After a long day in the sand, I said, "Alright girls, it is time to go. We need to throw you two into the tub." T (age 2) began to cry, "But, I don't want you to throw me."
(OK, I'll just put you in gently)

A storm was coming and you could see it approaching from the horizon over the ocean. I went in the condo to get the girls. They were headed to rest time. I said, "Come on, let's all sneak down to the beach really quickly so we can see the storm coming." K (age 4) proceeded to walk hunched over and told me to hunch over. "Remember, we are sneaking mom!"
It's your turn. Share what your Tiny Talkers are saying this week by linking below. (Please note that I look forward to coming to visit your post, but as you are reading this, I am visiting Mickey Mouse with my hubby and daughters for a day in Magic Kingdom. Clearly, I won't be able to visit your blog today, but please know I didn't forget you and I'll be there! Thanks for participating!)

Your kids are so cute. They say the cutest things. I love tiny talk Tuesday.

This is such a cute, fun idea. I actually had a post this weekend about eavesdropping on my son's play time ramblings. I'm not sure if it fits your guidelines, though (I couldn't find a link to them on your page -- but I'm working on very little sleep, so I'm sure they're some place really obvious and I just passed over them.) If it doesn't meet the guidelines, sorry... but I just had to share it anyway :-)

Those were all so cute! My favorite was the "sneaking!" I hope you bent down and sneaked along with her! That was so funny!
I hope you are having a fabulous trip and enjoying your books! Stay away from the computer :)

Amy said...

It's so funny how kids take everything literally. Hope you guys had a blast at Disney!!!

Momma Roar said...

I tried to post first thing but it wouldn't open up - at least Mr Linky was working today!

I love the one about the trees! Too funny!

Hope you had a great day with the family!!

too cute!

After I say, "How cute!", I have say that you have way more guts than to take little guys on a 14 hour car ride...although, we have a 11 hour plane trip planned for November. Pray for me!
