Quotable Quotes

(yes, Ellie is wearing my rain boots… ???)

Addison’s latest: (spring/summer 2010 – age 3/4)

(after she had tripped at my mom’s house for the second time in an hour) “I don’t like Utah. It’s too slippery.”

“I was screaming so loud that my mouth got dizzy.”

“Mommy – I ate a lot of breakfast and now my leg hurts. There’s too much food in it.”

“Mommy, can we go back to Utah? They have little marshmallows there.”

Ellie’s latest (spring/summer 2010 – age 6)

“Addison! You’re ruining my life!”

“Mom, how could we buy a new house? It wouldn’t fit in the car.”

“I’m such a forgetter.”

“Mom, I love you one thousand hundred and eighty plus eighty hundred plus three quarters.”

“Mom, can I have some more honey cream bunches? That’s a nickname for water.”

“Mom, I can’t wait for the tooth fairy to bring me a doll!”
“I don’t think that’s how it works sweetie. I think the tooth fairy just brings money.”
“Well dad said he would e-mail the tooth fairy and tell her what I want.”
(nice one Kenny)

“When I grow up I want to be a teacher, mom, princess, seaworld trainer, fashion girl and babysitter.”

“Kole, what you need is a catastrophe. Mom, what does catastrophe mean?”

“Mom, did that hurt when you got that sore on your tummy? (talking about the scar from my hysterectomy)
“No…the doctors gave me special medicine so I didn’t feel anything.”
“They put you under a spell?!!”

(El’s prayer at the dinner table) “Thank you for the food and I’m thankful mom’s not pregnant anymore and please bless I can have a play date with Evan tomorrow.”

**The girls learned about Satan in church and have been fascinated with the concept of Satan ever since. A couple of my favorite Satan quotes:

(my mom took the girls to Entrada golf course right by her house to see where High School Musical 2 was filmed. The man at the gate wouldn’t let them in to see the pool) Ellie: “that man must follow Satan’s rules.” Addison: “yeah he must be Satan’s dad.”

(At the dinner table) Addison: “Does Satan like rice?”
Ellie: “No. Bad guys have crooked teeth and just like sugar.”

xoxo, Erin

  1. Oh, those are priceless. How great that you have them recorded. They are adorable. We still laugh now with our kids at some of their quoteables. Enjoy.

  2. Hello, Erin. I just started reading your blog and your girls are so adorable. I have a 5 year old son that can say some funny & crazy things too. Also, I have two girls one 21 months & one 3 months and I can’t wait to see what to see what they come up with as they get older. I was looking at your kids scrapbooks & notice your using Becky Higgins project life. I had a couple of questions about them. Are you doing a picture a day for each of them or are you doing a month at a time? I really like your concept. My email address is Thank you for the laughs & smiles today. Your kiddos are so cute. Willow

  3. Oh my gosh, those are hilarious. I can’t wait till Blaze is old enough to come up with some doozies of his own. Thanks for the laugh.

  4. LOVE THIS!!! I keep journals for each of my four children with quotes from them. My 15 year old daughter and I read through hers the other night and were laughing so hard we were crying. It is SUCH A GREAT THING TO DO! Thanks for sharing yours! <3

  5. I am totally cracking up! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those girls! How funny! I love the Satan conversations, that has been a big topic at our house too. Thankfully everyone around here wants to follow Jesus and not Satan! I am feeling for you if El is already accusing Addie of ruining her life, I’m sure you don’t want to imagine when they are teenagers! And I’m sure glad Ad wants to come back to Utah, even if it’s just for the marshmallows! Ah, thanks for the great laugh. I’m still laughing. Love it.

  6. those were funny–your girls are adorable-and you are doing a great job at documenting all of it so you can continue to laugh at it for years to come

  7. Hi Erin,

    Oh those quotes are just too funny. Especially the ones about Satan. Kids are so sweet. I love how literal they always are.

    I have been jotting down a few funny quotes from my oldest recently too. I keep a notebook with me all the time and I try to write them down right away so I don’t forget them. Blogging is such a great way to record those quotable quotes. :)

  8. Erin-that made my laugh!! My FAVORITE quote was that the High School musical guard must follow Satan. Laughing outloud!!!!

  9. Hi Erin! I don’t know if you will remember me. I was just little when we were neighbors in Santa Clara, but my mom and dad are Del and Heather Myers. I stumbled on your blog while blog-hopping and I think it’s super cute! Your family is adorable!
