What is the sweetest or saddest thing your child has said so far?

We have a tree in the front yard and occassionally we find a dead bird in the yard. This happened recently. My son saw it and asked if the bird died. I said yes, it did. He said, "poor bird, her babies are going to miss her." It was so sweet and sad all at the same time.

  • Well, my son has only said 5 words so far (he's 9 months, lol), but the sweetest was on the day before Mother's Day when he reached his arms out to me and said Mama for the first time. I got tears in my eyes instantly. It was the greatest sound I'd ever heard, right up there with his cry and first laugh. :)

  • Well my oldest (5 years old) tells me he wants to marry me when he grows up and he keeps telling me I am beautiful. My youngest (3 years old) keeps telling me he loves me all day long and that he wants to watch Jib Jabs, which are e-cards on line.

  • as I fired up the hair clippers his 3 1/2 year old eyes filled with tears and his lip quivered, he covered his mouth and said "but i don't want to die" and as i proceeded with his haircut he screamed bloody murder and held his hands out and screamed "i want my daddy i want my daddy i don't want to die" it was pitiful and funny all at the same time
