conversations with addie

by | Aug 4, 2020

Every parent can probably tell you something funny their child has said…

Jesh and I have been writing Addie’s one-liners and crazy conversations down for the past few years. It’s so fun to look back on them and crack up laughing together.

Addie reads them too, usually with a sneaky expression. That’s our girl! Full of spunk and humor.

Here are just a few funny conversations with Addie.


Me: “Addie, what are you doing over there by the window?”

Addie: “I’m just sittin’ here, watchin’ the day go by, cuz you WON’T get out of bed!”

Me: ????!!!!!??????!!!!?????


Addie: “Daddy, who is Shakespeare?”

Jesh: “He’s an author.”

Addie: “An author? I thought he was the leader of the Ninjas!”


Jesh: “Addie, are you paying attention? What did we just read about?”

Addie: “Daddy, does your v-neck look more like a u-neck? If so, it’s cause you’re half-washed.”

Me: (Trying to stifle the laughter and turn away while Jesh tries to parent in the midst of the crazy)


Me: “Addie, be positive please.”

Addie: “Ok. I’m POSITIVE that I hate this!”

Me: Zing!


Addie: “Daddy, what is all that wrinkly skin on you?”

Jesh: “It’s my elbow!”

Addie: “You’re turning into an old man!”


Addie: “Mommy, where is the invisible cord?”

Me: “What’s an invisible cord?”

Addie: “You know, the cord that attaches the Mommy to the baby.”

Me: “You mean the umbilical cord?”

Addie: “Yeah that. Where’d it go?”

Me: “That got tossed the day you were born.”


(Shortly after we had read a book about the human body)

Addie: “Mommy, all the vegetables just traveled down to my anus.”

Me: ???!!!!???? “Are you telling me you need to go poop?”

Addie: (Sneaky eyes because she sees my reaction) “Yeah Mommy, I gotta go!”


“The most wasted of all days is that on which one has not laughed.”
