From the mouths of babes

I was running into Meijer this morning to get a few things, and I told my two-year-old we were getting three things: chicken, yogurt, and yarn (I needed black wool to finish my clogs). She paused for a sec, then looked at me a little confused and said, “because you don’t have any yarn at your home??”

Busted!! :roflhard:

how sweet. I love the things that come from a toddlers mouth. they are so sweet!

My son, who was just over 3yrs old when I started knitting used to call it “needling” :lol: . We’d walk through Wal-Mart or wherever and he’d see the yarn aisle and say “Mommy, there’s your needling stuff.” :roflhard:


Yeah, go ahead and confuse the poor kid!! Too funny!

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

Everybody’s a critic!

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

very cute…I miss the fun things that kids say…now that my boys are older. The other day my 17 year son said he thought that women would be happy if they have enough jewelry and candles ! :rofling: :rofling:

( I maybe own 4 candles total ) so not sure what he was thinking…it was in reference to little boy toys and how when they get older…they just have big boys toys…

I pity his poor future wife if he thinks that candles are “it”

When Ryan was 3 we were in ACMoore and he got all excited because his name was up in big letters–YARN. Maybe that’s why I like him so much! :wink:

Too funny! :roflhard:

:inlove: That is so cute! :inlove: :roflhard: But really… between us… is that why his name is Ryan? You can tell us :wink:

When I told his mom, she worried that he was dyslexic. I reminded her that he was 3 and recognized the letters of his name, so she shouldn’t worry. Moms!

He probably saw the word Yarn in print more than his own at that point!

He wasn’t named after yarn. I pushed for Loow, but nobody bought it! :rofling:

someday you can remind him of what he said, and tell him that the 4 ct rock he buys his future wife just isn’t quite enough to get her to marry him ;)!

NOO! NOT busted! This is the PERFECT opportunity to begin her initiation into a well-rounded STASH EDUCATION program! You can talk about concepts like “never enough” and “unlimited amounts” and what volume of yarn will fit into rubbermaid bins…its almost like a MATH lesson, too!

:roflhard: :roflhard: right kk…warp their poor innocent minds from the very beginning!

MATH! So if my kids watch me while I knit and shop for yarn can I ditch their math workbooks! Whoo Hoo! An brand new explanation on how knitting and homeschooling go together! Thanks KK! :cheering:

Do you want your children tallying up the yarn expenditures and then showing their “math work” to daddy?

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

:thumbsup: THAT’S the ticket!! :thumbsup:

OK … I have one to add. Not nearly as funny as Julie’s … or Ingrid’s … but still a testament that the kids have been paying attention!

We were in our favorite LYS last week getting wool for MIL’s mittens. We were walking past some lovely hanks of bulky wool when DD sticks her hand into it, squishes it around a bit and says, “Alpaca is sooo soft.” I grabbed one and turned it over to look @ the label, and sure enough, it was alpaca! :roflhard:

Man I couldnt even do that. NOW THAT Dotman is a future knitter.
