Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting!
If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor!
The guidelines are here if you need them and Mr. Linky is below.

T (age 3): I am a fish, not a whale. A whale is big. It is daddy size.
(is she saying her daddy is as big as a whale or that a whale is as small as her daddy...hehehehe)
T (age 3) was crying at dinner because she wanted the Tinkerbell cup that K (age 5) had. T had chosen the Heffalump cup at breakfast for the day, but now wanted the other one.
K turned to her and said, "Whoever has the Heffalump cup is the winner." She then paused for effect and began clapping, "Yaaay. You have the Heffalump. You win!"
(it was the first time we heard K
We were sitting outside in the driveway playing with the kids. Eric and K (age 5) were coloring with sidewalk chalk as he and I were chatting about how great our neighbors are.
Eric: Yep. They're great. Not a dog in the bunch.
K (age 5): (pipes into the conversation) No. Two dogs live on the street, dad.
(while in the car...)
K (age 5): I won't have to go learn how to be a mom one day. (I assume she was referring to not having to go to college for it since we talk about college as a place you can learn "what to be")
Mom: Well, how will you learn?
K: I'll watch you.
...and I was letting the reality of that statement sink in...she added...
K: But I will have to go learn how to drive.
(LOL! Better not watch me for that. She isn't allowed to drive like me...)
My children were playing in an empty water fountain the other day. It had a small leak in one area. They were cupping their hands to get water and then began baptizing each other. Mostly it was the two girls baptizing D. They would sprinkle water on his head to "baptize" him. It was cute.
