Season's sayings

Every now and then, I'll write up some of the funny, cute and just plain odd things that come out of the mouths of my children. Today, I thought I'd get in the spirit and share with you some of their Christmas crackers.

  • On hearing that we'd be watching the NYE's fireworks, Lil-lil said: "But I already saw those with Daddy last time. We're going to see them again?"
  • I overheard Lil-lil talking on her toy phone saying: "Santa, my sister has been very, very naughty. Please don't bring her any presents."
  • While handing out Christmas gifts to a friend who was going away, Goose said with gusto: "Happy birthday!" 
  • Lil-lil asked what we'd have at Christmas dinner and when she heard they'd be Christmas crackers, she said: "With what kind of dip?"
  • Lil-lil kindly told me: "Mum, I'm going to get you something really special for Christmas. I'm going to get you your favourite princess, Snow White, doll." Gee, I can't wait!
  • Lil-lil: "Mum, I really want to watch Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!" Me: "No, not now. Maybe a bit later." Lil-lil: "But Mum, he has a very shiny nose." (Of course, that makes all the difference!?)
  • Yesterday, while driving, Lil-lil sighed and said: "I can't wait for Christmas, so I can play in the snow." I think she's going to be a bit disappointed. No amount of explaining could convince her it wouldn't snow at Christmas.

Now, this one isn't mine, but a friend's child. It's so cute I have to include it. The little friend told Lil-lil very earnestly: "Santa lives in my chimney!"

I think the next week is going to be a very exciting one for two little people in our house. I hope they don't burst!

Have a great weekend.


  1. The excitement is busting out all over here in the Fibro as well. Let' hope we all survive.

  2. Oh,that is so too cute,all of it!! Yeah.I made the mistake of venturing to the shops with my kids this morning- too many excited children!! ;)

  3. Kids are the ones who really thrive at this time of year.

    Abigail knows Santa is coming in 1 week and cannot wait. She is watching the Wiggles Xmas special right now. It's painful for me, but she loves it!

  4. It is such an exciting time for kids. Even my 14 year old is getting pretty worked up.

  5. Oh, cuteness. I love those gorgeous sayings!
