I was explaining to a 5yo, what the recent school centennial meant. When I got to the 100 years old part she gasped and said, "and has Mr. (the principal) been here since it opened?..... ................................................my reply?

Yes! [}:)]

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

At three my daughter told her father 'angry parents make angry children'! He replied that it works the other way too!

I have a notebook to capture some of the funny things my kids have said over the years, so here are a few:
1."Mum, why is your tummy close to your legs?" (son 5 watching me get dressed one morning)
2. A straight piece of railway is a curve that doesn't bend (son 5)
3.Two and a half year old daughter rocking a pretend baby "this is my little baby" so dad says "is it a him or a her?"
reply "umm that's a good question"
4. Me to 6 year old son "let's go out for a cycle and run to get some exercise because I don't want to get fat" reply from son "but you are fat mummy"!
5.daughter 3 and a half choked on a pea and was asked "did it go down the wrong way?" her answer "yes, it went down my arm"
6. when daughter was 6 she used to drink a glass of water then jump up and down and invite anyone nearby to 'listen to her sewage in her stomach'.
7. When daughter was 7 I asked her what dad did as a job (he's a consulting engineer) and she said "he draws on the back of the paper and makes money"
8. In response to the many requests to get 10 year old son to tidy his room or get his toys removed, his answer, "Nooo, why can't you just leave me to live in my own filth"!
9.Dad accidentally opened the fishpond filter and the little plastic blade (non return catch) fell out and sank. Dad couldn't find and 7 year old son asked "why didn't it float?"
So dad replied,"that's a very good question. If you ask questions like that you will be a very good engineer".
Dad then asks, " do you still want to be an engineer when you grow up?"
Son, "yes"
Dad, "why?"
Son, "so that when you are dead, we'll still have an engineer in the family" :D

Hey, those are all good. Shad - I hope you're going to dish those up at their 21sts!

Friend in England lived behind a high hedge on the edge of farmland. Often children would ride on either donkeys or ponies along the road behind the hedge. As her pre-school boys couldn't see over the hedge they never knew whether they were donkeys or ponies, so they became ponkeys.

I always loved my little one saying , when something was asked about "when was that?", she would answer, lisp and all "Not the day, the other day". Somehow we knew what she meant.

Last night I had a first when a girlfriend's little boy, the shyest wee thing you could meet, came over to me and said "Auntie Di - can I...." First time I have ever been called Auntie and it melted my heart.

My son has just come home with the "considered milk" he bought from the supermarket with dad to make his caramel slice [;)] It is of course condensed milk.

My other son (about 2 1/2) walking through a park in Melbourne and having the bats pointed out to him, asked "but where do they cricket?" :D

This was the same son that on the morning of our flight out of Melbourne was jumping around when we were all trying to be asleep (grandma, granddad and myself) at 6am...he fell off the bed, down between the wall and the bed, and all we heard was this little voice saying "oh my dod!"...not that I condone blaspheme at all, but it was very funny because he knew he was in the wrong but just had to soak it up and pretend all was ok.

Jen - when I was little (way back in the 60s) apparently I called helicopters 'cot-a-lillys'. Funnily enough my mother aged 72 says 'elicopters' even after 52 years of living in UK (English not her first language), sheets used to come out as 'shits' and once she said "look at all that constipation on the windows" ha ha. Sorry just remembered another one ,once she said whilst watching Clint Eastwood in a movie, how 'extinguished' he looked (distinguished).
Damn!! she arrives tomorrow better make sure I don't show her this, otherwise I'll be in for it!?

This makes me realise I should keep a record because it's in one ear, have a laugh, then out the other. I know there have been some classics.

I do remember that my middle boy is going to marry me when he grows up (my husband might take issue with that) and that when he was four, my oldest called Grandpa Wilfre "Grandpa Real Furry" - he has prolific chest and neck hair.
