I love children, especially when they’re at that age where they’re able to communicate with adults, but their brains still don’t really handle logic very well, so they end up saying/doing hilarious things.
My niece is right at that age now — just shy of two years old — and she cracks me up so much. My favorite recent moment? She had pooped in her diaper, and when my sister asked her about it, she tried to blame a family friend who happened to be over at the time. She somehow convinced herself that we would all believe that the family friend had taken her diaper off, pooped in it, and then put it back on her.
Another time, she attempted to blame the dog for the same thing. Now that’s something I’d pay to see.
What funny stories do you have where young kids have attempted and failed at logic?

Not quite the same, but I was over my Aunt and Uncle’s house, helping my uncle install an above ground pool. My aunt was inside with the kids (ages 5 and 3) who were watching a movie. We needed an extra set of hands, so my aunt came out, leaving the sliding door open. About 5 minutes later, the 5 year old came to the door, and yelled to my Aunt, “It is like winter in here”, my aunt said “OK, close the door, I’ll be in in a minute” Assuming she meant it was cold because the door was open. A few minutes later my Aunt went in, and immediatly called us to come to the door. The entire living room was covered in baby powder, the 3 yearold had apparently emptied a big container of it that had been left out. My aunt asked what happened, and the 5 year old told her, my aunt asked why she did not come out and tell us, my cousin got upset and said “I did tell you, I told you it was like winter in here”.

iarebridezilla: I used to have a young stepdaughter and she was probably 7 at the time. We drove by a small themepark near our house and I explained to all the kids that at one time this old, wooden roller coaster was partly underwater for a while because of flooding.
So she asked, “Do they have to hold their breath?” Lol!

MakingHerWait: that is too cute! haha “what part of that was unclear, mom? sheesh!”
My niece is also really into saying goodbye to people, but her reaction is super delayed. One time, I showed up to pick up my sister to take her out for her birthday, so I was only in their house for like two minutes. Niece didn’t really have time to process that fact before we left, so apparently she spent the next half hour saying “bye Auntie!” to no one. BIL claims she said it at least 100 times. 😛

My niece calls daylight “summer”. I find it so cute when she says ‘I’ll see you when it’s summer.’ 🙂

FI and I were at an ice cream shop this weekend. This place has a ton of outdoor seating and kids are always running and playing on the lawn while their parents watch. One kid, maybe 4-5 years old, had an ice cream in his hand and walked over to this low brick wall that other kids were sitting on. You could tell that he really wanted to climb on that wall too, but he looked at the ice cream in his hand and couldn’t figure out how to climb it while holding the ice cream. I even heard his dad yell “Don’t climb it, you’re going to drop your ice cream”. After like 2 minutes of him standing there and pondering, he takes the ice cream, puts it under his chin, then uses both hands to climb up. Of course, his neck and chest are now covered in ice cream and he couldn’t eat the rest of the cone. I also loved how nonchalant the dad was about it. He just yelled back “See? Told you not to climb that with your ice cream!”

iarebridezilla: My bi-racial niece and I once had this conversation:
Her: “Auntie, are you black or gold?”
Me: “Ummmm, what color are you?”
Her: “I’m gold.”
Me: “Well I guess I’m black then!”
I thought it was so cute that she decided to classify herself as “gold” lol!

My son was 6 and decided to say a bad word. I told him if he continues to say that word I would wash his mouth out with soap (empty threat, I know), he responded with “No, you don’t have to. I’ll wash my brain out with soap.” He ran off and I heard the water running in his bathroom, I walked in and his hair was covered in water and soap. I asked him what he was doing, to which he said “See, I brainwashed myself. I don’t even remember the word anymore!” I could only respond with “Good.” How do you respond to that, these situations are not in the parenting books!

TheLadyA : My 4 year old niece is black of Indian origin but pretty pale. She refers to herself as “beige”. I love it. She doesn’t understand why my skin is so white and once asked if I was sick.

MrsClumsy: that is priceless!!
And I just remembered another 2-year-olds-plus-poop story: when DD was maybe 2 months old, we went over to a friend’s house to visit. The friend has a daughter the same age as DD, plus another daughter who had just turned 2. So at one point, I go to change DD’s diaper and the 2 year old insists on helping me. So we get the wipes and changing pad out of my diaper bag and I open DD up to find a poop in her diaper. The 2-year-old is immediately horrified and demands to know “WHO DID THAT!” I’m like … uh … you? Me? How many guesses do you need here?

I have a brother who is 6 now but my favorite story was when he was about 3. My FI (then BF) and I went into the house and he marches right up to us and said to FI ” I just learned you’re not actually my brother until you get wanabe a rock! Well come with me I have plenty of rocks you can choose from!” I just about peed my pants on the spot I was laughing so hard. sure enough FI left the house with one of his rocks, we still have it.

wanabeabee: That has to be one of the cutest things I have ever heard! I guess he really wanted him to be his brother 🙂
