Sh*t My Kid Says


Age four is a fun age. Full of energy, full of sass, and also full of surprises! Isla has certainly developed her own personality, and it really shows through some of the things she says, both adorable and bizarre.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured some of her gems, so here’s some quotes to make you go “Aww” as well as, “Oh my:”

While sitting at the table:
Her: “Mom, do you know what makes you special?”
Me: “No, what?”
Her: “I’m special.”


“Did you know that lobsters eat …. POOP?!?”


Me: “Please don’t touch the computer, Isla.”
Her: “Why not?”
Me: “Because it’s expensive and I don’t want you to break it.”
Her: “Why not?”
Me: “Because if it breaks we can’t replace it because money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Her: “Pineapples grow on trees!”


Talking about hunting with Kyle in the fall …

“Yeah, so we can shoot a deer IN THE FACE!!!”


Discussing at the dinner table how she’s going to have to learn how to tie her shoes …

Me, to Isla: “You’ll learn how to tie them eventually!”
Her, to Kyle: “Yeah, the lady in the zebra shirt said so!”

(She got the shoes at Footlocker. Ref shirt = Zebra shirt!)


“Moooooom, is it tomorrow today??” 


I can only imagine what Norah’s going to come up with when she can make sentences and not just scream and screech at everything ;)

  1. I love these posts :) It took Topher FOREVER to remember the difference between today, tomorrow, and yesterday. It was always “the day after this”, or the day before this”, or “the day after the day after the day after this”. I think he’s finally got it figured out now ;)
