Preschooler Quote(s) of the Day

Grace kept me laughing today and I had to share a few funny quotes!

[Said while picking her nose]:  “My Mimi told me to NEVER put my finger in my nose because it’s gross!”


[We were at the crowded playground and she was hesitant about playing.]

Me:  “Why don’t you go climb up to the slide?”

Grace:  “Hmmm….well, actually, I thought about it….but there’s just too many kids!”


[Conversation in the car coming home from Wal-Mart]

Grace:  “I’m so silly, mama!”  *giggles*

Me:  “Why are you silly?”

Grace:  “Well, actually, Granddaddy called me a ‘wiggleworm’ because I didn’t sit still in Granddaddy’s church!  That means I’m silly!”

Sidenote:  I thought she did pretty well in Granddaddy’s church.  She managed to sit through all the worship services we attended on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Youth Camp (about 10 total).  Not bad considering she’s still attending the children’s care at our home church.  She mostly flipped through her Bible or fell asleep.  I think Granddaddy’s ‘wiggleworm’ comment was referring to a service at Youth Camp where Grace wanted to go sit with my parents instead of me.  Out of the corner of my eye I could see her moving around constantly despite their warnings to be still.  I gave her the “mom glare with eyebrow raise” a couple of times to no avail.  I ended up taking her out and disciplining her for disobeying her grandparents.


[Conversation while getting ready for naptime]

Me:  “Grace, it’s time to go to the bathroom before naptime.”

Grace:  “Oh, boy!  Can I use my potty?  PLEASE?”

Me:  “Um, yes.  Of course you can.”

Grace:  [Rushes upstairs, throws her arms around the potty and plants a big, wet kiss on the toilet seat]  “Potty, I love you SO MUCH!  You are so sweet!”

Me:  [Stares in stunned silence trying to figure out what the potty did to deserve such affection]

That cracks me up! I hope you have a clean toilet seat!

Bradford was using the bathroom at the Y, which is a little taller than he's used to. I peeked in and saw him standing, bracing himself with his hands on either side of the seat...yuck!!

Wow... too funny... but you have to try to figure out what the affection for the potty is all about... I'd love to hear THAT thought process.
