Questions 2015

I started my blog over four years ago to share my kids’ funny questions and comments. At that time, they were 10, 7 and 5. Now they’re older, they don’t say so many funny things, but we do still get a few gems.

Here’s some from the last year or so…


Daughter age 8 3/4: I like the feel of scabs. It’s one of my favourite things to feel.


Daughter age 8 3/4: (on Stephen Hawking) He’s the cleverest man in the world, but he can’t talk? That’s the weirdest thing ever.


Daughter age 9: I didn’t finish my ice cream yesterday. Where would it be now?


Eldest age 13 3/4: Are hippies bad people? Why did the Americans try to kill them?


Daughter age 9 (eating lasagne): I’m just going to leave these prostitutes.

Me: These what?

D: Pasta sheets.

(Breathes sigh of relief)


Daughter age 9: I didn’t know guinea pigs had willies and minnies, I just thought they had bums.

(Her watch has stopped, but she’s wearing it anyway) Daughter age 9 1/4: I’m just going to set it for a time when I think I’ll wake up and wonder what time it is.


Daughter age 9 1/2: All Dads are grumpy.

Husband: Oi!

Daughter: I said Dads, not DADDIES!


Daughter age 9 1/2 (to me, on the day after my birthday): You did that well. Does being a year older make you better at cutting cheese?


Daughter age 9 1/2: The Eden Project is just a lot of green sheds.

(She means greenhouses. How has she made it to 9 1/2 without knowing the word ‘greenhouse’?)


Daughter age 9 1/2: That lady was nice, wasn’t she? Old ladies are usually nice.

(The lady in question was about 46!)

  1. Hahaa the old lady one made me laugh. And those pesky hippies with all their flower power!

    • The woman had a daughter the same age as my eldest! How could she be an old lady?! I think the hippy thing comes from him watching too many films!

    • Thanks. I used to write down loads, but she doesn’t say many now and the boys don’t really say any at all. x

  3. Brilliant, I love these. I’m glad to see children still keep saying ridiculous things as they get older. On second thoughts of course they do, I still do it at 35…

  4. I love this! I think it’s brilliant that you keep a record of these and they may be older but there are some classics there

    • Thanks! There certainly are! They’re few and far between these days, but they still come out with them from time to time 🙂

  5. lol bless, they say the funniest of things. And get us into trouble at times. Sometimes I am the same with my oldest, when he comes out with crazy things. So cute though x

    • It’s very cute! We’ll miss it when they don’t accidentally say funny things any more.
