I have been meaning to write a little compilation of the funny things Monkey says for a while but not got round to it, so I have loads noted down. I will try and limit this post to the best ones.
Starting with one of my faves from our funny boy. On a recent walk he said to Daddy “I need to whisper in your ear” Daddy bent down and Monkey said “wa wa wa waaaa” (think sad trombone sound) and ran off chuckling. Cheeky monkey!
One bathtime Daddy randomly started singing California Dreaming and Monkey was most confused by this
Daddy: All the leaves are brown
Monkey: All the leaves are brown?
Daddy: And the sky is grey
Monkey: the sky is grey?
Daddy: I went for a walk
Monkey: You went for a walk?
Daddy: On a winters day
Monkey: on a winters day?
His voice was getting more high pitched and he sounded more and more incredulous with each questions so by this point we were chuckling away!
Another bathtime conversation I overheard was Monkey asking what plastic was. I didn’t hear exactly but Daddy gave a detailed description and Monkey asked more and more questions, resulting in the wonderful question “What are atoms?” haha Daddy told him but I’m not sure he really understood. In fact I think he lost him a lot earlier in the conversation with mention of hydrocarbons!
He’s ever so polite and says excuse me all the time…. Even when he is being rude.
“Excuse me you’re talking too fast and just going blah blah blah blah blah”
“You’re really old. ” Thanks Monkey
“Mummy look at your big fat tummy!” Thanks again haha. He does love us though.
“You’re all my best friends. I’m going to keep you.”
After being told he’s my bestest boy he tells me I am his bestest girl in the world too.
“Mummy, I need to whisper in you’re ear… I love you”
He loves his sister and really cares about her. Shes at an age where she has lots of bumps and scrapes and one day pronounced”Oh no look at your knee! ” to a bemused LM in the bath.
His drawings have come along so much lately and I do adore the descriptions he gives for them!
That’s the earth apparently and the little circle at the bottom is the “North pole” where father Christmas lives. The circles are our family and though you may think that the lines coming out the sides are arms, they are actually ears. Connecting ears to be precise and apparently Daddy has very big ears haha.
He also comes out with some really random phrases.
“I would like a salad. A teapot one. I think I need a dinosaur one actually.”
“Excuse me, in olden times that path used to be a road.” (It did not)
“Did the bear make it?” (About the maple syrup Daddy bought back from Canada)
Monkey: “It’s a ruin. It was a castle but the bad guys went in and made it into a ruin. It was a long time ago.”
Daddy: “It was before I was born”
Monkey: “And before Mummy and me and LM”
Daddy: “and Granny and Granddaddy”
Monkey: “Naaaoooo” (disbelief)
He also had the occasional Pearl of wisdom, like this one about his school transition session.
“I cried at the beginning but I didn’t need to.” Very true little Monkey
He sings constantly and as he is currently reliving his Daddy’s childhood he now knows all the words to the theme from the original transformers cartoon and loves singing and dancing to that. Along with the spiderman theme tune bless him.
And finally, because toilet jokes and naughty humour are funny at all ages, when holding up a long cardboard tube between his legs, and chuckling away to himself he announced “Look mummy I have a big willy” and burst into fits of giggles while I pretended not to find it funny too haha.
He says so many funny, lovely, cheeky, annoying things all the time and I wish I could remember all of them. I can’t of course but I love having these little records to look back on.
Kids are indeed hilarious, aren’t they? The piping in while his dad was singing made me giggle, so cute! 🙂 #ftmob
lol this is hilarious. I love the funny things they say. So cute and funny. #FTMOB
I love reading your posts about the things Monkey says – he does come out with some wonderful things. I do love how he says “excuse me” even when he is being cheeky and had to chuckle over his implication that Grandma and Granddaddy were there when the castle was ruined. Love him telling you that you’re all his best friends and he is going to keep you. So adorable. That drawing of you all is fab too – love the interconnecting ears and the world with the North Pole at the bottom. Thank you for linking up to #ftmob 🙂
Haha he is so random and funny! So glad you managed to note some of these down for future memories. Would have loved to have watched hubby explain an atom! X #thetruthabout
Goodness me, these are hysterical. I think I am going to need to swot up before Cygnet starts asking questions about plastic, atoms and hydrocarbons. Pen x #thetruthabout
You’re so good at writing these down, I’ve always been terrible at it, and you do forget! Love ‘You’re all my best friends. I’m going to keep you’, so sweet. My little girl says excuse me all the time, it makes anything you’re going to say okay, right 🙂
Aw they come out with some right classics sometimes don’t they?! I wish I was better at noting down the funny things my two do and say. Sometimes it’s the way they talk as well and the little earnest hand gestures that make me smile. Thanks so much for linking up to #thetruthabout this week Caroline X
