When we were young, my then-3-yr-old sister and her friend were playing in my grandmother’s backyard. There was this dark-skinned neighbor next door resting in the sun on his lawn chair, and the 2 girls didn’t notice him till he got up from his nap about an hour later. I noticed they both stopped playing and stared at the person heading toward his house. They stood there frozen as my sister pointed to him innocently (there weren’t too many black/dark-skinned people in our neighborhood then) and remarked in a hushed whisper, “look! A bear-man!”May 17, 2012 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #1185290

I told my 5 year old son, “it’s really hot in our house,” to which he answered, “you know why? Cuz I’m shvitzing”.
I said, “why? Your shvitzing doesn’t make the house hot.” And he answers so innocently and seriously,
“Of course it does, I’m shvitzing and I’m walking around all over the house, no wonder it’s so warm here!”June 24, 2012 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1185301

My little daughter came into the kitchen and wanted some small cookies. We told her she could take 3. A few minutes later we caught her taking another 3. Take 2 and that’s it we said.Ok she says, but instead of putting back a cookie she took more! What are you doing we asked her. You said take 2 cookies so I am, she said innocently (or not).August 9, 2012 2:27 am at 2:27 am #1185307

My son encountered a math problem (only 1 out of hundreds) that seemed to possibly suggest using a calculator.
Soon after, when we go shopping for school supplies, he insists he needs a calculator. When I point out it was only for one question he says “I’m not allowed to use my brain! It’s cheating!”September 28, 2012 12:10 am at 12:10 am #1185313
My young daughter was insistent that her teacher had told them that on yom kippur all the men go to shul and to look like malochim they all wear white tichels…September 28, 2012 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #1185314
Ken Zayn: LOL!! (that one really had me laughing out loud!)
My 3 yr old made a paper shofar wrapped around with a whistle at the end. When I told him before Rosh Hashana we have to put it away for yom tov (it was muktza), he insisted that he has to bring it to shul. He explained, “And then when all the Tattys take out THEIR shofar I will take MINE out and blow too”September 29, 2012 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #1185315
As a kindergarten teacher I hear some great pearls of wisdom…
During davening time the I sometimes had to mention that not everyone was sitting nicely, to which all of them would then start saying that they were listening/ sitting nicely/ not messing around etc. This got quite tiring so I used to tell them “I know who was sitting nicely and not sitting nicely, B”H I’ve got 2 eyes”. One morning this happened so I said, as usual “I can see who was davening nicely” to which a girl called out “B”H you’ve got 2 eyes!”
When I was expecting my baby, I was around 7 months when one of my kids asked me “Why do you have a fat tummy?”. I asked the girl “Why do you think?” to which she replied “Maybe cause you eat too much?”
I had to bring my baby into work one morning cause she wasn’t well enough to go to daycare (we call it creche here). One of my kids had the same name as my baby and commented “Her name means me.”September 30, 2012 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1185316
My 5 year old saw me crying during neilah and asked why I was crying. I said it was because I was davening hard to Hashem to give us a good, healthy year. She answered, “and you’re crying cuz maybe he won’t?”October 19, 2012 12:05 am at 12:05 am #1185317
One of my kids have just begun learning the script alef-bais. Today she came in excitedly from school and proudly announced that she can now write a script gimmel and she wrote one. I told her that in a few days she will be learning the script zayin and it is the exact same as the gimmel besides that you write it the other way round. Oh she said, you mean you start at the bottom and write it going up to the top? ☺October 28, 2012 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #1185318
This is turning into my own private diary. I look forward to looking at it in the future and getting nachas.
My daughter came home from school this friday ???? ?? ?? with a box and a lady in it. “Who’s in the box” asked her. ” ??? ” she said proudly. “And who put ??? in the box” I asked her? “I did” she said!October 29, 2012 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1185319
when my sister was 3, she learnt about the mabul. later on, the teacher was warning the class not to put too much toilet paper in the toilet because it could cause a flood. for months my sister was petrified to flush the toilet. in her mind, she put a mabul and a toilet flood together and assumed that if she flushes the toilet, the whole world will be flooded.October 30, 2012 5:04 am at 5:04 am #1185320
we had my sister in law over with her kids for shabbos and I was single at the time.They were setting the table and for some reason I was standing in the kitchen. Her 2 yr old son asks ,”Mommy, why isn’t ____ helping?”October 30, 2012 1:21 pm at 1:21 pm #1185321
My 4 year old boy celebrated his (hebrew) birthday in school 2 weeks ago with a nice big cake for him and his classmates. He had such a great time he couldn’t stop talking about it for the next few days.
This past Shabbos, in the middle of the shabbos seudah, it occured to me that it was his english birthday. I announced,”Hey everybody, today is October 27, it’s Shloime’s english birthday!”
My son’s bright eyes opened wide at the news of his birthday, and he excitedly asked, “So now I’m 5??”November 23, 2012 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #1185322

One of my girls (in first grade at the time) won a raffle at the motzei Shabbat learning at her school. It was a two volume set, called “The Illustrated Mishnayoth Shabbath – Mishnayos Shabbos with The Commentary of R’ Ovadia M’Bartinura.”
A few weeks later as we’re eating on a Friday night, she brings the first volume over to me, saying, “Abba, read this to me, I won it, please read it to me.”
So, I opened it to the first mishna. As you probably know, it has to do with two men, one inside a house and the other outside, and they’re extending their hands into and out of the house, handing each other something on Shabbat. I’m trying to explain everything to this poor six year old kid, who is just looking at me. Finally she asks, “Abba, are you making this up?”September 12, 2013 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #1185329
We didn’t get to ????? on ??? ???? so we decided to go today. As we were about to go, my little one said “where are my aveiros? I need to take them with and feed them to the fishies”December 5, 2013 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1185330
I was giving my baby medicine and my 2 yr old wanted to know why she was not getting any. I told her because baruch Hashem she was not sick. So she asked “And baruch Hashem _____ (baby) is sick?”
I was telling her about chanuka and I explained that she might get presents from her bubbies. So I asked her – what do we do when a bubby gives us a present? To which she answered “we take it home and play with it!”
She wanted to wear a skirt one day so I told her when she gets really big she will wear a skirt. So she asked “and when totty gets big he will also wear a skirt?”February 15, 2014 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1185331
My 6 year old brother was coughing and it sounded like he may throw up. So my other brother said, “Lipa, where are you going to throw up?” His reply, “On your plate!”

My mother gave our guest’s young daughter a piece of cake. Her mother prompted her, “So? What do you say?”
“Can I have another one?”
Happened to someone I know – a young girl used to wake up every morning in a really bad mood, and would throw tantrums, cry, and generally be very hard to deal with. One day, when the girl threw a tantrum just after waking up, her mother finally had enough. “That’s it! Tomorrow, you are not going to wake up in a bad mood. I want you to wake up in a happy mood! A jolly mood! A cheerful mood!”
The girl burst into tears and said, “I can’t wake up in so many moods!”September 28, 2014 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #1185334
And also – my niece said to her three-year-old sister, “You’re face is dirty.”
Without missing a beat, she replied, “So don’t look!”
Our family went out one day together with my married siblings. My mother was writing her cell on every kid’s hand, and my nephew wanted to know why. “In case you get lost, so people will know how to bring you home,” my mother answered. To which my nephew replied, “If I get lost, I’ll just tell someone I live in the house next to my neighbor’s.”September 28, 2014 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #1185335

That’s so funny and so true! Yes my nephew drew a picture for his friend who was sick, and I told him he would have to wait until his friend came back to preschool to give it to him. He thought for a moment, then said, “Can’t you just put it in your phone and send it to him?”September 29, 2014 8:03 am at 8:03 am #1185338
I remember reading this thread two years ago (pre-registration)! How can it be that old?!
