The funny things they say and do! A pinball, The Sea and The World

On a recent trip to the seaside, we parked the car down near the seafront to take a walk along the promenade. Joseph was looking out to the sea

Joseph: “Where’s It all gone?”

Me: “What Joseph?”

Joseph said angrily : “The water! There is no water in the Sea!”

Me: “The tide is out darling! It is out there but just far away!”

It took him a while to understand, he just kept looking out at the horizon searching for the edge of the sea. He even decided to have a little jog over the sand down to the seas edge just to check that the sea hadn’t run out of water!


Joseph was talking about the world, the shape it is and the countries in it!

Joseph: “Mum, if the world is round then what country will I need to go to so I can walk off of the edge?”

Me: ” Joseph the world is round so if you walk from one country to the other and keep on going until you get back to where you started from, you will never walk off of the edge!”

Joseph: ” Well, where is the end of the world then?”

Me: “There isn’t such a place!”

Joseph: “Then how do those people get up into space then?”

Me: “Astronauts go up in space by a rocket that leaves the ground and it goes upwards! Not along the ground!”

Joseph: “Why do people talk about the end of the earth on films then if there isn’t such place!”


It was a warm day outside and I said the boys could have an ice-cream from the shop, I was asking them what sort they would like

Joseph said “A Pinball one!”

A Pinball! What’s that then?” I said

“The one with the ice-cream and the thing that I am not allowed at the bottom!

“Oh! A screwball!”

Wot So Funee?

Does that mean my hand will brake? Funny things they say!

While playing about with Joseph today, I picked him upside down and noticed that his school shoes were getting a bit grubby

Mummy: Ooh! Joseph I think you need a new pair of school shoes
Joseph: Why mummy?
Mummy: Because they look like they are wearing away at the sole
Joseph: But they still fit me
Mummy: Yes but you can’t walk around with holes in your shoes and they don’t look very smart anymore
Joseph: You know! mummy, shoes don’t last forever!

Tell me about it!

Daddy bought a new car home yesterday and when the boys came home from school they couldn’t wait to explore it. They was enjoying touching buttons, opening up compartments and pretending to drive the car. Oliver was touching the hand brake, Jak was in the drivers seat and Joseph was in the passenger seat looking around
Joseph: What’s that Jak?
Jak: what?
Joseph: That what Oliver is playing with? *pointing at the hand brake*
Jak : That’s the hand brake!
Joseph: What! Will it brake my hand if I touch it then?
*Joseph looks worried*
Jak: NO! LOL it means that you can brake the car with your hand
Joseph: That’s not good, we don’t want to brake the car!
Daddy interrupts and tells him that to stop the car you can use your foot on the pedal and you can pull up the handle with your hand to make sure that the car will not move and that’s why it’s called a hand brake.

It never seams to amaze me with what my boys come out with!
What do your children say or do that make you laugh?
