Kids Say the Darndest Things!

Sometimes you just gotta wonder, where on earth do kids get some of their sayings? Savannah just cracks me up with all of her crazy sayings. Here is just a sample:

"My ideas are fired!"
"My knee hurts and my brain hurts; I need a treat to make me feel better."
"Mom, turn off that music that song is getting stuck in my head!" Joseph then says patting the top of his head, "Yup, right here!"
"Mom, you can get me a drink of milk, that's the deal!"
"Mom, its my job now to tell Joseph and Jacob no no! Because I'm a big girl and that's my job, not yours."

(sigh) How in the world did I give birth to a 13 year old? We also had some new neighbors move into our four-plex and they have a little girl who is about a month older that Savannah. They LOVE to play together and they always play at her house because they have all the cool toys that my kids don't have. And I do have to say, some of their toys really are neat. I have to rip Joseph away from them every time! Anyway, after seeing all these cool toys Savannah has started a list (which she told me I have to write down so I don't forget) a list of things that she wants... and I have no clue where she is getting some of this stuff! This is her list so far:

Slinky
Little Tea Set (those tiny porcelain ones)
Dora Bag (I have no idea what she's talking about especially since my kids never watch Dora)
Telescope (what the?)
Video camera (boy does she had expensive taste!)
Map (again, what the?)
Soft Dress
Baby Doll

I wonder if kids have a sixth sense that lets them know when their birthdays are starting to get close. She says she wants them for her birthday and that I also have to send it to Santa. I'm sure she will add more to her list before long. (sigh) I guess she is 3 going on 13!

5 super cool people speak:

Well, at least you could get the slinky--they're cheap. And if she's anything like me, it won't last for more than 2 minutes! Apparently, they're not meant to be worn as belts. :-) Her age is so fun.

You told me once when Savannah was younger she started calling Luke "honey", because that is what you called him. I thought that was so adorable.
