Here are a few of my recent favorites. (Please share your own "things they say" in the Comments!).
*Keep in mind, my son has almost NO volume control. Anything he says can be heard within a 30 yard radius.
Son: "Mama, why do you wear hair down there?"
(Dear Lord. I was getting out of the shower; he was playing in the bathroom. No words, people. No words.)
At our usual fine dining establishment (McDonald's):
Son points behind me: "Mama, is that a lady?" (I look over my shoulder to see a sweet-looking teenage boy with long hair trying to eat his meal in peace).
Me: No, sweetie, that's a boy.
Son: So he was a lady, and now he's a boy.
Me: ?? Um, no. He was a boy and still is a boy.
My husband was sporting a couple days worth of stubble on his jaw area. My son pointed at my husband's chin and exclaimed with an impish grin: "That's a creature."
We all cracked up. Was the stubble the creature or my husband as a whole? The world may never know.
(Child of the 80's? You'll remember the cutest creature of all time: Gizmo!)
Last, but Not Least:
Purely out of curiosity, I asked my son who the President of our country is.
Him, completely serious: "Santa."
