15 Things I’ve Told my Son {and you’ve probably told yours too}

  1. OMW, the nakedness! What is it with small children and nakedness? I swear, it takes my daughter an hour to get dressed.
    My most favorite “weird phrase” came from daycare, not my own child. I worked in infant/toddler care for years so lots of different toys. The farm set was a favorite so I was constantly saying “stop licking the cow” or “spit out the farmer.” Taken out of context, some of the strangest sounds phrases. lol #ShineBlogHop

      Lol! That’s awesome! My favorite context-matters quote is “Just let your brother eat the sock.” Out of context,very strange; in context, I was trying to prevent my 6-month old from melting down because older brother wanted to take away the sock said 6-month old was contentedly gumming 😉 Thanks for commenting Julie!

  2. The clothes thing is so right. they don’t see the point in them. Baths too, they don’t see the pint in them. sun cream either. Great post. Made me smile.

    • Carrie says:

      Oooooh baths . . . . yes, they do make baths “fun” don’t they? Thanks for stopping by Kristen!

  3. Maria says:

    This made me smile. I have a little girl, but friends of mine who have boys have been known to say these to their sons as well (especially the peeing part). It sounds like boys are a bit more adventurous and daring than girls. Either way, the fun is still there, right? Thanks for sharing this (and for making me smile today!).

    • Carrie says:

      Thanks for stopping by Maria! I definitely think boys are a bit more adventurous {and creative with things you would think should be obvious 😉 } than girls, but the girls I know have so much more drama in their lives at the age of 1 than my boys do! It’s all fun 🙂

  4. Yes to these questions! I’m particularly fond of, “Son, where is your underwear?” as he goes streaking across the house, HA!

  5. I love this, Carrie! I have had said so many bizarre things in the last 3 years. Why are you naked? and What are you eating? Are probably the most common, though. Kids!
    Thanks for sharing! I needed this laugh this morning! 🙂
