Mealtimes, Mind

Shizzle The 4-Year-Old Said…

The questions are relentless. RELENTLESS. But I’m trying to soak them up considering that, in roughly nine years time, she probably won’t want to converse on any level. So, with that in mind, here’s a celebration of what the chislers say before, you know, they cease all form of communication. Apart from texts requesting lifts.

As mentioned, she’s all about the questions (averaging in the region of 11 queries a minute), mostly involving house structure. Memorable ones include…

• “What happens when you have a house made of tissue?”
• “What happens when you have a house made of bangles?”
• “What happens in a raspberry house?”
• “What happens when you have a house made of toothpaste?”
• “What happens when you have a house made of skirts?”
• “What happens when you have a house made of wees?”

And, the current favourite…
• “What happens when you have a house made of brown bricks?” Let the mind wander with that one…

Other questions include…
• “Can you kiss a bee?”
• “What happens when you hug a beaver?”
• “Have you got another baby in your belly, Mammy?”
• “Am I going to India today?”
• “Where can I buy zombie shoes?”
• “Daddy, you know your suit? Is it a fart suit?”

Winning

Other statements more declarative in nature mostly involve eating. For example, at dinner time this evening, she exclaimed…
• “I’m ACTUALLY enjoying this!”

Earlier, it was…
• “Look, Mammy, I’m having a snot snack!”

While a few weeks back she said…
• “Do you want the good news or the bad news? The good news is that I’m going to see Florence later.” And the bad news? “Hungry lions.”

I can’t possibly top the last statement, so best leave it there. Feel free to add any of your kids’ pearls of wisdom in the comments section.
