More Things Kids Say

Or, more accurately, More Things My Nephew Says!


Nephew: “Oww, me nuts! Nuts is another name for your winky, did you know?”


Nephew watching You’ve Been Framed: “That man’s thick and old, isn’t he? Grandad, you’re thick and old!”

(I wouldn’t have sat down for a week if I’d have said that to my dad or grandad at that age! However, Dad says he can’t help but laugh when my nephew says these things).


Nephew running into the kitchen: “Mum, your new lipstick is totally awesome!”

(Picture a clown’s face and you’d be somewhere near what his mum saw!).


Nephew: “Silky (the cat) has big ears… Cats shouldn’t have big ears!”.


Nephew (Watching the back end of the cat with a disgusted look on his face): “What’s that?”

Me: “Silky’s bum.”

Nephew: “Errrrgh! But it’s got a hole it in!”

What funny things do the kids around you come out with?


  1. OK, an old joke
    Johnny – Mum, Mum, we stuck a firework up the cat’s a**e
    Johnny’s posh Mum – Johnny, Johnny, rectum
    Johnny – sure did Mum!!

    Sorry about that ….. but I don’t have any little children in my life to hear funny things!!

  2. Hi Nikki,

    “Out of the mouths of babes..” and all that 🙂

    We never had children of our own, however we have had some laughs at the expense and antics of our many nieces and nephews over the years.

    It seems strange how much of childrens’ humour involves various parts of the anatomy, just an observation on reading both your post and the ensuing comments!

    Not wanting to rain on the parade, I’ll carry on in the same vein … My SIL in her infinite wisdom and no-one to this day knows why, decided to teach my eldest niece, that a certain part of the female anatomy was called a ‘suzy’. Great when she was a toddler, but not so good when she started primary school and had a real live Suzy in her class. My SIL had some explaining to do, I can tell you and being the good relatives that we are, we left her to get on with it 🙂

    Great post, brightened up my day.

    Haha, loving this! Kids can be so adorable and funny at the same time. I heard a lot of ‘interesting’ things from my cousin who is 7. Can’t remember anything specific now, but she sometimes says things that you wouldn’t think 7 years old could think of. One time she said to me: “I am going to grandma’s next week in a forest (she has a homestead there). I need a break from the city. It’s too much sometimes”. I swear, my eyes popped out so much. She is freaking 7! And she talks like she’s 30 or something!

      Your cousin reminds me somewhat of my nephew… He’s a little old before his time too (sometimes!). When he was 2 or 3 I was looking after him when he had a cold. He’d got a runny nose, so I grabbed a tissue but he said he’d do it himself. So I passed him the tissue and he dabbed his nose like an old gentleman would with a hanky!

    Hahaha I always think kids say the funniest, most creative things! My nephews signature saying was “that wasn’t ‘posed to happen” He said it all the time! 🙂

    • Nixy says:

      My nephew’s signature saying used to be “Daddy did it!” when he was in trouble for something… Of course, that didn’t work if it was Daddy who caught him. 😀

    • Nixy says:

      I guess it’s like face paints to them. Mind you, you should have seen my brother after my niece tried out her play make-up kit on him! 😀

  5. Tracy says:

    Nephews are the best. My three-year-old nephew runs around saying “you pushed me in the nuts!” which he learned from his big (seven-year-old) brother. That’s widely quoted in the family now. Ha!

  6. Barbara says:

    Zoe (our five-year-old granddaughter) made us laugh when she called The Eiffel Tower the Awful Tower. However, the funniest thing was when she saw Terry (my hubby and her granddad) without his shirt, she delighted in telling the world that granddad has big boobs but mummy has bigger ones! Out of the mouth of babes!
