They really say just about anything: readers share their favorite kid quotes #Being Parents#big kids#lil kids#social media#toddlers April 17 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride Wait a sec, I have something serious to say. Photo by Stephanie Kaloi. Kids are notorious for saying all kinds of random shit — the show Kids Say the Darndest Things didn't exist for no reason. My own son had us literally LOLing recently, so I shared what he said on the Offbeat Mama Facebook page: The other day our three-year-old told us: "When I grow up I'm going to drink wine. When you grow down you can drink juice." I thought it would be fun to open the topic up for discussion… and here are some of your favorite one or two-liners from your own offspring!

Jessi A.: "If you see a dinosaur, you need to RUN" and when asked why a frog might play dead (in our fish tank) "Because that's his choice and he can do it if he wants to" — both by my four-year-old niece Karen W.: This morning as my just eight-year-old started asking about how his aunt and uncle were going to go about making a baby, I explained that would be something he'd know a bit later… He said "I still think the baby comes out of your belly button!" I said "Well, they grow in a woman's belly but have to exit through the bottom exit," and he yelled "I CAME OUTTA YOUR FEET???" That's some righteous bed head. Photo by JM_Photos. Heather U.: (as I'm getting out of bed in the early AM) my three-year-old says to me…"Woah momma… your hair looks rid-dic-u-wus… your still bee-ti-ful to me though." Kelly M.: Not my kid, but a cousin: "You know what you see when you look in the mirror? Yourself, in 20 years, when you're a grandmom." I should clarify that the target of the statement doesn't currently have any kids. Candice L.: My four-year-old told me while we were eating breakfast a month ago: "Mom, I love girls. But, don't worry, my sister will like boys" I laughed so hard. The way she said it, so serious. Photo by chunkymermaid. Mich C.: "It's raining hard, I don't want my eyebrows to get wet" — said in a very serious manner by a three-year-old boy. Let's keep it going!
