Reminiscing with a friend.
She sent her son (7) outside to watch Dad mending the car. When he came in Mum asked, 'Did Dad say what was wrong with it?'
'Yes,' said, the wee boy, 'some cake was stuck in there.'
Puzzled, she questioned her DH later. The boy had asked if the problem was serious and Dad had answered, 'No, son, it's a piece of cake.'

One of my sons, when he needed the lavatory would say, descriptively, 'My bottom's heavy.'

What's your offspring's droll or funny saying?

My 2 and half yr GD asked me for Cock Porn today, whilst saying to her dog No Peaches No cock porn for you! 🤔🤔 It took me a while to realise she actually meant Popcorn which was on the kitchen table.

Grandson of nearly 3, in the middle of potty training.
Mostly successful for wee, but a dozen times a day he'll want to sit on it before announcing, 'My wee not comin' out!' and charging off again.
Alas he hasn't sussed out the poo bit yet...

Just remembered, when my Daughter was young, she is now fifty, I remember her asking my Mum why she had so many tram lines on her face. She hasnt asked me as she would know the answer.

When calculators first came out, my friend's daughter told me she wanted a complicator.

I was checking to see if my gran-daughter then aged 2 had gone off to sleep. No she said my eyes are still looking.

I'm waiting for a cataract op and told her , she's now 6, "That Mam's eyes have gone". "No" she replied, "they are still there".

My daughter had a job to keep a straight face when she told her recently that the boys in the playground were using a naughty word to play a game. "What is it " asked my daughter. "Cocks and robbers" came the reply.

My 8 year old daughter, eldest of 5 children, came home from school after a sex education lesson and said "You and dad did it 5 times!"

My sister, then 5, once casually told our mother she had heard Edie, the lady next door telling another neighbour about a very old man of mutual acquaintance who had turned into a carrot because he touched a dog.
We had always been warned never, ever to touch dogs.

My mother puzzled for a long time over this before asking Edie what on earth my sister could have overheard.

Apparently Edie had told her friend that Stanley had suffered a severe stroke and would probably be a vegetable for the rest of his life.

We forget that children are just building their vocabularies and what we take so much for granted (words like 'stroke' etc.,) can sound very odd to them.

Out walking today, we saw a little girl, barely knee high to a grasshopper, she was wandering around in a world of her own admiring the daisies. She wandered into my path and suddenly seeing me (I had stopped so we didn't fall over each other) and looking up she squeaked ”I’m really very sorry”

Make my heart melt.

These are so much fun. They should be put in a book? There's probably ones out there already.
