My daughter wanted to go down to the basement while my husband was on a call for work. I said to her, “You can’t go right now. Daddy would be angry if you go while he is working. He isn’t taking any visitors.” My daughter: “I’m not a visitor. I’m his KID!!!” – Andrea Brodie
I asked my 3 year old to clean her toy room which was extremely messy. Five minutes later, she came upstairs…
Me: You cleaned your WHOLE toy room already?
Me: So any toys that are left on the ground can be given to poor kids?
Her: “Yep”….long pause….”But you can’t go down to check because there’s a monster down there!”

My 6 year old asked me the other day: “Is uncle still in school?” I said: “No, he’s a military policeman now”. She replies with: “What does that mean?” I say: “Well, he’s a policeman now, but if he gets called to war, he has to go and fight to protect us. Know what I mean?” She nods confidently and replies with: “Oh! Yeah! Like star wars!” – Chatelaine Chantal-louie
One kid bites the other. His defense? “He fell into my mouth!” – Sarah Kydd-Houghton
