Cabbages, Canada, corners and chavs

Just a sample of random stuff from the dark depths of my children’s minds…

B1 age 10 3/4: Do you know anybody who’s played Russian roulette?

LG age 6 1/4: Mummy, when people take skin off pigs, do they die straight away?

B1 age 10 3/4: Mummy, do you know how much cabbages cost in Canada?

LG age 6 1/4: How doesย a person get to be chavvy?

LG age 6 1/4: Some children who are naughty can be quite thin.

LG age 6 1/4: Jack turned round and he said ‘You’re my girlfriend’ and I thought ‘Oh no! I don’t even like him, he’s naughty.’

B1 age 10 3/4: I’m really quick at turning sharp corners.

  5. Thanks very much, ladies. I’m sure it won’t be long, Mummy G! I started recording what my kids said when my daughter was 4 – and she was pretty funny then I’m just sorry I missed all the years before that.
    I’m sure the chavvy question is down to complex socio-economic factors, Cathie, but I didn’t say that to my kids! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. They certainly do, Susan!
    If you met my daughter, Actually Mummy, you would be so shocked that she could say that. The words ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ were designed for my daughter – she is SO good and nice!
