When my daughter was around 5 she had a new friend round to play. Her brother who was 3 wanted to join in, can I play too, she didn’t really want him to join in so she said oh yes you can be dad and go to work and calmly opened the door lol

My sister saw my father peeing as a toddler and asked my mom why dad had a long vagina.

gd sees me putting on shapewear and asks" if you put it on inside out will it make your tummy bigger"? Does anyone know the answer?

Naty: My daughtersaw her dad at the toilet. Her comment was "mine comes out of my bottom, yours comes out of a tap"

One of mine used to say, ‘I’m stuffed to the highest heaven!’ when she was full.
We still say that.

I'm not sure if this is really funny but for sheer audacity, we were taken aback when 5 year old DGS said "I'm going to mess up your house" he'd just been told he couldn't have more sweeties and was rolling around on the carpet and churning up my fireside rug. It wouldn't have happened when his mother was his age but as a grandparent, you tend to bite your tongue a lot don't you?

My OH in a public loo with his dad, 4 years old 'Daddy wht is a venerable disease?'

DD1- taking ages eating her lunch on high chair- I turn around to put stuff in sink and 'crash' ... So I shout 'you did that on purpose, didn't you' - 'No mummy, not on the purpose, on the floor' ....

DD2 in the car with DD1, aged 5, just before Christmas- taking them to dry ski slope in Swadlincote 'Mummy this is where Jesus lives!' me 'why' - DD2 'they told us at school Jesus was born in swaddling coats'.

My daughter (aged 9) phoned me from a weekend residential trip to say she had condensation. I thought perhaps her bedroom window had water running down it, but no, she'd had problems going to the toilet...constipation!

My youngest son at the time used to call his slippers “ wipwaps” haven’t got a clue! But we all still say can we have some new wipwaps for Christmas!,

Whilst in the bath my 2 sons aged 10 and 11 knocked on the bathroom door and asked if they could ask me a question that their dad couldn`t answer.
After pulling bubble bath for coverage I said yes come in,
They asked me what a period was so I started explaining how the female body works every month they looked at me then at each other and back at me and my 11 year old said erm it`s when you move from one class to another mom.
OOOOOps out they went.
We still laugh about that to this day.

My four year old GD saw an old photo of us and said to me your don’t look like yourself anymore!’

My grandson (aged 3) looked in puzzlement at an old photo of his dad without his beard and couldn't quite make it out. 'It's another daddy....' he said. So cute!

We had an infestation of Earwigs my DS was about 18 months old. He couldn't say Earwigs, so called them "WinkaWinks"

Thereafter, every insect was a WinkaWink!

DGD3 when aged 5, asked her Mum (my DD) to name the 5 senses, which she did, sense of taste, smell etc. What about sense of humour? Says DGD smile

Naty "vagina" is an odd word for a toddler to use!?

And yet again, the wrong one, why does so often the word vagina get used, when it should be vulva?

My GS aged 3 came back from nursery and asked for candles. He asked again a couple of days later, daughter bought him a battery operated one. The next week on entering nursery he asked again pointing to a little boy who had them. He wanted some sandals.
