A Kid Quote Involving “The Other Guy”

kid quotes bubbleIn honor of Biz’s 4th birthday tomorrow, I thought I would share a recent quote from the boy himself.

Biz is always good for a funny kid quote. Heck, he’s always talking.

What makes Biz particularly funny, though, is his facial expressions and hand gestures.

I guess he gets the hand gestures from my side of the family, being Italian and all.

Unfortunately, I can never get him on camera at the right times to capture the really good stuff. (He’d be a great vlogger.)

He’s pretty much comedy gold all the time. Or so he thinks in his head. Today, he repeated every word I said as I was having a phone conversation with my husband. Every. Single Word. He even mimicked my laughing when I couldn’t take his relentless mocking while trying to figure out who would be picking up G from soccer.

Most of his quotes go on forever, so I’ll just leave you with this one gem he recently gave us. Keep in mind, religion isn’t a big topic in our household. To steal a quote from Jenn at …so this is love.., we are “religiously awkward.”

At the dinner table

Biz: You know, God made us.

G, Dad, Me (nodding and wondering where he’s going with this one): Oh, really?

Biz: No. Hold on. It was the other guy. Wait. What’s the other guy’s name again?

G (half laughing): Do you mean Jesus?

Biz: Yeah. That’s it. Jesus. It’s Jesus that made us.

I still have no idea where it came from, but I will forever think of Jesus as “the other guy.”

Do you have any funny kid quotes to share?

Kid Quotes: Popular in the 1900s

Being a mom to two boys is always entertaining. I like to share some of my favorite quotes from my boys here so I can keep track of them and because they’re just plain funny. Here are a few recent ones that had me giggling.

From Biz, age 3. At the dinner table after my husband mentioned something that happened when G was in utero and then had to explain that “in utero” meant when he was in my tummy.

Biz: It was dark when I was in your tummy, Mommy.

Me: Oh yeah? You remember when you were in my tummy?

Biz: Yes. I remember the food bonking me in the head when I was in your tummy and you were eating.

(We might need to explain that they weren’t in my actual stomach at some point.)

From G, age 7. A conversation in the car after school. His class has been singing “Here Comes the Sun.”

G: Someone in my class brought in a picture of two of the guys who sing “Here Comes the Sun.”

Me: Cool. Which Beatles were in the picture? John Lennon and Paul McCartney?

G: I think so. I didn’t know you knew about the Beatles. Did you know one was shot?

Me: Yes.

G: Well, they were popular in the 1900s.

What funny things have your kids (or kids close to you) said lately?

Kid Quotes Friday: Big Sandwiches, New York Island and the Sea Horse Exception

Overheard while my kids were playing with their Lego Star Wars set.

Biz (3yo, talking for his Lego Star Wars Stormtrooper): Hi. I have a baby in my belly.

G (6yo): Um. Are you a girl?

Biz: Why? Do you have to be a girl to have a baby in your belly?

G: Yes. Well, unless you’re a seahorse.

Biz: Oh. He’s not a seahorse.

G: So I guess you don’t have a baby in your belly.

At the dinner table (Keep in mind, we live in Maine.)

Me: What did you do at preschool camp today?

Biz: The beach was closed, but the guy wasn’t there so we went fishing.

Me: You went fishing?

Biz: Yes. We sneaked in.

Me: Where exactly was this?

Biz: On New York Island. We took a plane there.

Me: Who drove the plane?

Biz: I did.

Me: You did?!

Biz: Just kidding. It was the pilot.

Conversation in the car

Biz: Mommy, what if I were a big sandwich?

Me: That would be silly.

Biz: I’d be a big Bizzy sandwich.

Me: What kind of sandwich is that?

Biz: A mac and cheese sandwich, of course!
