Funny Toddlers

… are not exactly free, but often loads of fun. I don’t think there are too many days that pass by without me cracking up for something our little geniuses say or do. Here are a few examples, please give us all more laughter by sharing or linking to your best ones in the comments:

– Me: What are you going to be when you grow up? 3 yo: The best. Me: The best in what? How? 3 yo: I just kind of am the best.

– I started to have second thoughts on how clever it was to buy underwear with Lightning McQueen on to the 2 yo boy when he dropped down his pants for everybody to show the car, or to see it himself. Or just to point between his legs and yell “Lightning. Quick”.

– “I’m just like an emu: I have strong legs and can run fast but I can’t fly” (3yo)

– Waking up to “where is mums penis?” (2yo) sure is more fun than the alarm clock.

– With a loud voice in a quiet restaurant “Dad has a penis and mum has a penis” (2yo) *feeling everybody’s eyes on me waiting to hear my answer*

– Me: “Give mum a kiss” “Yes, if you pay me here (shows her hand)”. I am sure she’ll be the next business guru. (3yo)

– Me: “What do you say (when you just got a lolly)?” The 2yo: “Hooray! (and arms up in the air)”. Yep, that will do…

– What does the 2,5 yo do when she feels lazy and Mum won’t pull up her knickers and stockings after the potty? She teaches her little brother, almost 1,5 yo, to pull them up for her. Result: both satisfied and proud of themselves. Too bad she didn’t teach him to pull up his own pants.

– The 2,5yo sees a picture of Jussi 69 (the drummer of the gothic rock band The 69 eyes) in the paper: “that boy got frightened. Maybe he was left alone in the dark”.

And finally, I have to admit how childish we are with my husband: I still find it funny to imagine the faces of the workmen when we by accident found out what frequency the construction workers on the road works close to us used. We, of course (who wouldn’t?!), gave our radio phone to our 2 yo turned into the frequency, who happily chatted to the workmen, every once in a while yelling:”noisy”.

Have a great weekend!


  1. […] song coming out of your mouth when you squeeze your own penis. Or so I am told… (please find more real life comments made by my little […]

  2. […] Sometime using three languages gets funny: my daughter told me “Mum, princess Fiona and Shrek don’t understand Finnish, you have to speak English to us”  when they were pretending to be the characters (we only have the movie in English). Or when our son was having one of his worst terrible two fits and first yelled to me “nooooo” in Finnish, continued yelling “and this would be nej in grannies language” and after breathing in added to his *obviously slow mother* “and dad would say nooooooooooooooo” (makes me look forward to trilingual teenagers…). It also took us a while to figure out why he explained at daycare that frogs like rabbits: he thought frogs say “rabbit” instead of “ribbit, ribbit” in English. But there is no connection in Swedish: a frog says “kvak” and a rabbit is a “kanin”. (If you want to have a laugh at other funny things my children have said, take a look here) […]

  3. Your kids are so cute! I would have been real embarrassed to react to the “mum has a penis” sentence!

    1. Well, I wasn’t too proud at the moment either – but it was funny too!

  4. Your kids are so funny! Btw, I also get “Where’s your penis?” a lot from my 2 yo boy:P

    1. So it the penis phase. Lol

  5. Oh my goodness! I love that you found the frequency of the radio band – that’s just awesome!

    1. I could have guessed that you’d be on board with this kind of fun! 🙂

  6. That is a wonderful post! Made my day…have a great weekend too!

    1. Good to hear, thanks!

  7. Ha ha ha! That was really funny – and cute! 🙂

    1. Live entertainment 🙂

  8. Ah, you know, I always sit down to write my posts in the evening when my husband gets home from work and takes over and they seem to have an overabundance of frustration in them which I don’t think is a coincidence. This is a good antidote.

    Yesterday when I called an end to TV time my daughter told me I was “not [her] best friend any more”. When I asked her what I was now she said I was a tiger-panda mummy. Dunno – seems like I got promoted to me? What do you think?

    1. Definitively a promotion! Go tiger – panda 😀
