Lilly was one of those kids that once she learned how to talk, she didn’t stop. Right around Christmas of 2014 when she was a little over 16 months old, she just hit this stride and ever since then, her vocabulary took off. And now, at two and a half, she’s CRAZY articulate and so smart. I realize I’m the biased mom, but for real… this kid has a crazy memory, an incredible ability to memorize things, and the way she comes up with things sometimes is just hilarious.
She’s also in that stage where she just says things that are funny. And I realize they might not be funny to everyone and they are likely only funny to me… but whatever. 🙂
I’ve started trying to remember to write down the things she says and just remember the way she says things because she’s losing her “baby” words every day and sounding more and more like a little girl and less and less like a toddler or baby.
Anyway, I wanted to start sharing some of those things that she says or things she does that make me laugh… really just for my own purpose of actually writing it down and documenting it.
SCENE: After much petition, I gave her a banana.
Lilly (*closes eyes, holds banana in both hands*): “Thank you, Jesus for banana. Aaaaaamen.
Me: “Very good, Lilly.”
Lilly: “I know. I’m soooo kind.”
Me: “And also humble.”
SCENE: Randomly talking about Chewbacca
Lilly: Chewbacca go night night. He’ssleepy. He go and lay down on the piwwow to go night night. He likes to wear the owl jammies with pockets.
Me: What about the robots? (referring to storm troopers)
Lilly: The white robots like to wear blue pockets.
Me: Anything else?
Lilly: No. Just blue pockets. And then the black robot…
Me: Darth Vader?
Me: What about him?
Lilly: He’s drinkin’ the water.
Me: “Hey Lilly, can I change your diaper?”
Lilly: “No, it’s not safe.”
Me: Lilly, what’s your favorite story in the bible?
Me: What’s your favorite song to sing?
Lilly: Praise Him, Praise Him! and Trust and Obey
John: Lilly, who is your favorite biblical giant?
Lilly: Goliath, of course.
SCENE: Me trying to teach Lilly “Knock Knock Jokes”
Me: Okay Lilly, he’s how the joke goes… I say “Knock Knock,” you say “Who’s there?” I say “Lettuce,” You say, “Lettuce who?” and then I say, “Lettuce in, it’s cold out here!” Now, let’s try it.
Me: Knock knock
Lilly: Who’s there?!
Lilly: OOOO It’s cold out here!
SCENE: Me trying to teach Lilly another “Knock Knock Joke”
Me: Okay Lilly, he’s how the joke goes… I say “Knock Knock,” you say “Who’s there?” I say “Who,” You say, “Who who?” and then I say, “That’s what an owl says!” Now, let’s try it.
Me: Knock knock
Lilly: Who’s there?!
Lilly: BUT AN OWL SAYS WHO!
Me: Did you have any dreams last night?
Me: What did you dream about?
Lilly: I dreamed about Goliath. He was running! And he was BIIIIIG like Daniel Tiger! And then he fell down and went CRASH because, you know, I threw a rock at his head and then we were singing and dancing and then Jesus was sad because He died on the cross, but then he wasn’t sad because he was happy. And Goliath was BIG and scary and went ROAAAAAAAARRR.
Me: That sounds like a pretty intense dream.
Lilly: I WANT TO GO TO WAFFLE HOUSE RIGHT. NOW.
Lilly: Jesus died on the cross at bible study, then one day Jesus was King of the world.
Lilly: Mommy, did you know, Jesus is COMIN ON DA CLOUDS!!!!!!
Those are just a couple of the ones I have written down (that I’m not worried about sharing on here… haha!). What about you? What hilarious things have your kid(s) said recently?
