LIFE ACCORDING TO LIL SIS // the funniest moments of our little comedienne

Even as a baby it was obvious Lil Sis had a great sense of humour. She was always chuckling away, and if she did something to make us giggle she’d ham it RIGHT up to make us laugh even more.

As she got older, her kooky humour really began to reveal itself and she’d have us in hysterics with her quick wit and crazy antics. The other day Facebook reminded me of one of her funny moments, and it got me thinking about all the things she’s said and done over the years – some of it intentionally hilarious, others completely accidental.

So I went back through all my old posts and dug out some of my favourites to share with y’all – I hope they give you a giggle too!

Feb 2015, four years old: 

Last week Lil Sis and I had a little chat about manners, and how sometimes behaviour that’s OK at home might not be suitable when we’re out and about. Picking her up from a playdate yesterday, I asked if she’d had a good time. ‘Yes Mummy,’ she replied. ‘We had lunch, and played with the toys, and had a chocolate biscuit.’ ‘I bet you didn’t want to leave!’ I said. ‘I had lots of fun, Mummy…’ she replied, ‘… but I’m glad I can fart again!’

Lil Sis, earlier, as she cuddled up to me: ‘Mummy, your hair smells like flowers…’ (smile spreads across my face) ‘… and chips!’ (smile fades away again).

April 2015, four years old:

The other day Lil Sis and I were playing a game of I-Spy. Lil Sis: ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with ‘T’.’ ‘Table?’ ‘Nope.’ ‘Towel?’ ‘Nope.’ ‘I give up; what is it?’ ‘Mirror.’ ‘No, sweetie, it has to be something that starts with the same letter.’ ‘Ohhhhhhhh!’ ‘Why don’t you have another try?’ ‘OK Mummy… I spy with my little eye something beginning with ‘A’.’ ‘Apple?’ ‘Nope.’ ‘Art box?’ ‘Nope.’ ‘OK, I give up!’ ‘A mirror.’

June 2015, four years old:

Lil Sis, at bedtime last night: ‘Mummy, what’s this?’ Me, to Lil Sis: ‘That’s your ribcage.’ ‘But what is it?’ ‘It’s the bones that protect your heart, and all the organs inside your body.” ‘I hope a dog doesn’t eat me.’ ‘Huh?’ ‘Because dogs like to eat bones!’ ‘A dog won’t eat you, sweetheart.’ ‘But what if it does? What if it jumps into my mouth and goes inside me, and eats all my bones? Then my body will be all wobbly!’

‘I literally do not know how to respond to that.’ ‘That’s OK Mummy, goodnight!’

July 2015, four years old:

‘Mummy, my hat is too small!’

Are you sorry?’ ‘Yes… ‘ Lil Sis wept. ‘… but it felt REALLY good when I did it…’

November 2017, seven years old: 

I needed some change to buy a coffee, so asked if I could borrow the pound Lil Sis had sitting in her jewellery box.

Yep. Sure… that’s exactly what I thought you said…’

Don’t you just adore the funny things kids say? I’d love to hear some of yours!
