Snapshot of a Statement

Have you ever stopped and thought about some of things you say on any given day? Have you ever sat quietly and really listened to your kids’ conversations in the car? Have you ever thought of taking a snapshot of a statement?

Here's mine...

Archer (age 4): "Mom, when I am 16 I am going to have red hair."
Me: "Really? Why do you think that?"
Archer: "Because Graham has red hair and HE is 16."

...conversation continued about how not all 16 year olds have red hair.

Archer and 16 year old RED-HAIRED Graham 

Now it's YOUR turn...
You can write a post on your own blog and link it back to Managing Marbles 
Leave your snapshot in the comments section of this post.

Can't wait to see what you and your little ones have been saying!

Come back EVERY TUESDAY for Snapshot of a Statement...

Me: "Archer, do you think Mimi is old?"
Archer: (after much thought) "Well, 66 IS an old number."

Love, Mimi

Jack (age 5): mom! We really need to start saving money so Ethan can go to college (Ethan is 11)! It cost like 10 dollars!

Me: Speechless...

Madison (age 7): Do you know where the timer is?
Me: yes, why do you want it?
Madison: I am going to tan out front. I need the timer
so I know when to flip.

St. Patrick's Day is coming! Tradition at our house is for the kids to leave a treasure box on their windowsill (where the moonlight can shine on it) and the mischievous leprechauns will come and fill it with gold. They might also cause some trouble around the house. This morning....

Kara (7): Mom, when can we go shopping?
Me: What for?
Kara: Supplies to build a trap. I'm going to catch a leprechaun.

So cute!

I loved being able to contribute to this even though Abby's vocab isn't huge yet.

Here's my link:

One of my favorites:

Me: Isaiah, you need to eat your dinner.
Isaiah (age4): Jesus doesn't like that mommy.
Me: Jesus doesn't like what?
Isaiah: My dinner. He's in my tummy and he doesn't want to eat that.

I was getting ready in my room and overheard this from the dining room:

7-year-old (to the 5-year-old): "Yours would be medium, mine would be large, and Mom's would be EXTRA-large"

(at which point I yelled from the other room...)
Me: "Hey! You don't say your mom has an "extra-large" ANYTHING!

7-year-old: "MOM!!!! We're talking about BRAINS!!!"

Rachael said...

I don't have my own kids, but as a nanny I've got hundreds of these snapshots laying around. Warning- could be graphic to some viewers.

Me: Watcha doin', Nick?
Nick (4): Playin' with my pee pee.
Me: Oh. What are you playing?
Nick: Hide and go seek.
*silence for 5 seconds*
Nick: GOTCHA!!

Kelly said...

Well, at least you don't act 66!!!

Kelly said...

Love the innocence. Too bad he isn't right...$10 tuition would be awesome.

Kelly said...

Sounds like me when I was 15...yikes. Sounds like someone might be like their auntie. :)

Kelly said...

Stacy- that is such a cute idea! Archer would love it! I love that she wants to trap him. So cute.

Kelly said...

Adorable post! Love the USB family.. Oh their little minds. :)

Kelly said...

Lol. That's a great one. How creative! Maybe Jesus really didn't want it. ;)

Kelly said...

That is hilarious. Good kid... Or should I say smart kid! An extra large brain is about the only acceptable answer, right? ;)

Kelly said...

Rachael- it never fails. I laughed OUTLOUD!

Kelly said...

Oh, Alissa, that is so sweet. Could you imagine if that really happened? Haha!

Magen Quiroz said...

About a year ago I caught Sara digging around in her closet, I asked her what she was doing, she replied "Mom, I'm looking for my cowboy BOOBS!"

Tiffany H. said...

Preston is in that questioning stage and the other morning asked me, "How do you think?" After saying something about his brain doing the thinking he replied, "But *how* does it think?" lol You got to love their inquisitive minds!

Holly Ekdahl Campbell said...
