My daughter Andie from the time she was 5 (in 1986) until she was 10 claimed she was going to be president because "I have to be in charge." At 10 she stated it was impossible for her to become president, because "women never get any party support." What kind of a thing was that for a 10 year old to say?

long titties... Classic!

My baby brother Tim at 5 years was witnessing the birth of puppies. Confused aout which end of our Manchester Terrier they were appearing from he asked our Dad. "But where are they coming from?" My Dad thinking himself clever said, "God brought them."

Timmy pondered for a moment and asked "Why is she eating them?" My Dad explained "she not eating them she is cleaning them."

Tim not to be thwarted by superior adult logic responded, "Why, did God have dirty hands?"

Come on folks. Post more. I like this thread.

When stuck in traffic one Thanksgiving weekend (for hours), my then 6 year old daughter asked, "Why doesn't the first car just go?"

When my youngest daughter was about 5 she misplaced a tooth that had come out that day. She was upset that the tooth fairy would not come. Her 8 year old sister told her to stop being silly...that Mom was the tooth fairy. The youngest paused for a minute, then said, "Mom can't be the tooth fairy. She's HOME every night."

At the school where I was caretaker and playground supervisor, I was on the playground one lunchtime when a five year old came out from lunch.

She walked up to where I was standing and stopped, with a very thoughtful expression.

"Mr. Thompson, I think I'm going to be sick", she said.

Euurrrrpppp!    She christened my shoes with the recently ingested lunch.


With a big beaming smile on her face, she said "I WAS RIGHT", and gaily skipped off to join her classmates.

Even while I was standing barefoot in the staff toilets, washing my shoes and socks, I just couldn't stop laughing.

Many years ago I was accosted by an angry fellow teacher who accused one of my form of taking the mickey out of his maths assessment. A rather stupid question was worded as follows:
"I need 5 biscuits on monday, 7 on tuesday, 19 on Wednesday,20 on Thursday and 15 on Friday. When I go to the shops, how many do I need to buy?"
The child , who did most of the shopping for her family ,gave the answer, "One large box."
Well, ask a stupid question and you might just get a very smart answer!

I remember many years ago, during the chaotic period of non education in the sixties, hearing about a child psychologist who was assessing some kids with behavioural problems (nonsensical:- The KIDS didn't have behavioural problems. EVERYONE ELSE had problems with their behaviour). Anyway, the gist of the tale was that this guy was trying to see how these kids handled an illogical situation.

So, he gives them a long rigmarole along the lines of

"If it takes a man and a half , a day and a half, to dig a hole and a half, with a spade and a half, how old am I?"

Without hesitation, one youngster said "Twenty".

"How did you come to that conclusion?" asked the psych.

"Well mate, me bruvver's ten and he's half f***ing daft", came the crushing reply.

My second son is a wee bit of a perfectionist. When he was learning to talk, he pronounced his brother's name as 'Bike' instead of Mike. So, instead of calling him by his name, he called him 'Brother' for about a year. He's 16 now - and yeah, he still idolises his big brother.

My grandson had learned that "Goosing" someone meant pinching their bum/backside/posterior.. or whatever you call it.   There is a sign in the UK to warn of elderly persons possibly being on or crossing the road... a sign which shows a man walking with a woman. My grandson asked as we passed one of these signs "Grandad, why is that woman goosing that man on the sign"?   Until then I had not noticed the phenomenon.. she does appear to be doing just that. I will never look at those signs in the same way again.

The niece felt strongly that one should play real house, not living in a trailer, but the nephew, a year younger, dug in his heels and wouldn't budge.

The niece finally said she would agree to that stipulation if she could get to play the husband. This seemed agreeable, so the niece walked out of the room to "go to work". Reappearing suddenly, she announced. "Good news!! We're moving to a REAL house!"
