Friday chat: Conversations with a 6 year old

March 27, 2015

kids say the funniest things

Kids really do say the funniest and sweetest things ever.  Lately I’ve been making a great effort to write down some of the stuff that Anya has been saying because I really want to remember it.  These little conversation gems won’t be around forever and will get less and less frequent as she gets older.  I was looking through my book of these notes and I thought I would share a few here for a light-hearted end to the week:

I was reading the Observer food monthly (kids special) which had an interview with Nathan Outlaw talking about his kids and how adventurous they are with food including all kinds of vegetables.  I showed Anya this interview as she is a fussy eater and especially dislikes all manner of vegetables.  After explaining how they eat and try everything I asked her to fill in the blank:

Me: The children eat everything like meat, fish, chicken, fruits and they even eat….? (I’m thinking veg of course)
Anya: … their dad?

Latest excuses not to sleep:
After trying a few usual ones and realising they’re not going to work, Anya pipes up:  ‘I can’t sleep because my underwear is too small!’ (Whatever will she think of next?)

Anya asks to borrow my ipad and this is how the conversation goes:
Me: Why do you want it?
Anya: I want to sing along to ‘Beat It’
Me: OK give me five minutes
Anya: No, that’s too long
(I tell her again that she has to wait but I can see she’s getting very frustrated and impatient and I just can’t understand why the urgency)
Me: Why can’t you wait five minutes?
Anya: Because the concert has started and the pretend audience are getting very bored!

Anya: I’m really rich.
Me: Please could you give me £50,000?
Anya: I only have £2 but you can have £1 (bless her sweet little heart!)

What are some funny things your kids have come out with?  Or maybe they’ve said some stuff to melt your heart?  I’d love to hear in the comments.

P.S.  Anya wears the gorgeous Oslo dress which is now available in the Ebabee shop.  Unfortunately stock is very limited due to off-line sales and this dress being so popular.  And the cute brown brogue shoes were a gift from Pisamonas – where you can get £10 off your first purchase.
