There are many funny things toddlers say and they sure add up to some awesome memories. Although they may make you feel embarrassed, you’ll come to cherish them. Here’s a compilation of some of the funny incidents your toddler has put you through or definitely will!
Toddlers can be incredibly innocent and funny. Ever since they start babbling, you wait for them to begin speaking sentences. And when they do start to talk, you just fall in love! But their innocence can put you in a spot too since they have a knack of babbling inappropriate sentences or asking embarrassing questions. See if you’ve heard any of these!
Hilarious Things Toddlers Say to Parents
1. Get rid of the old ones!
The concept of old and new is often explained to toddlers to get them to let go of their old, broken toys. It can surely come back to haunt you one day with a remark like “Grandma’s old. Let’s throw her and get a new one!” Bet you didn’t see that one coming!
Don’t be surprised when your toddler comes to you seeking answers for his logical questions. It’s a common sight at restaurant tables when toddlers, in their innocence, ask their moms and dads things like “Dad, why are they called waiters, when it’s us who’ve been waiting so long?” A rational query, no doubt, but one that can make you cringe!
3. Thanks for warming the seat
You may warm up their beds and blankets to get them all cosy without so much as a ‘thank you’. But, your little angels will sure appreciate you for warming up their toilet seats as well if they happen to use it right after you. Don’t give them an annoyed look; just tell them they’re welcome!
4. Isn’t that your dress?
It’s no big deal if your toddler praises your new coat with an expression like “Mom, that’s a nice coat. It looks just like a rug.” Just pray that she doesn’t start comparing your dresses to her aunt’s upholstery with expressions like “Mommy, isn’t that your dress?”
5. Bury the monster baby!
If you’re about to deliver another child, be prepared for unexpected remarks! Don’t expect your firstborn to gush over his little sibling. In all probability, he views the moment as something not so desirable. You may even hear him say, “Mom, it’s a monster. We should bury it!”
6. Who’s that big-bellied man?
This is one of the most common and probably the most hilarious. Mind you, you may also be at the receiving end of it someday! A kid is made to understand the simple fact that babies come out of the tummy, so if you have a big belly, try not to get in the line of sight of a toddler. You don’t want to hear “Mommy, see that man over there. I think he’s going to have a baby!”
These are just a few of the funny things that toddlers say. More often than not, there aren’t any answers to the questions that the tiny tots have. Enjoy their innocence till it lasts. As embarrassing as their questions can get, your toddler will become a moody teenager before you know and you will miss these times!
