May Ellie-isms & Zach Attacks

As always, the start of a new month brings a new collection of kid quotes. Here’s another glimpse of why I love being a mom. They crack me up.


Zach: “Oh, Mommy, you look boo-tiful!”

Ellie: “Look! It has Sleeping Beauty on it.”
Me: “Actually, it’s Snow White.”
Ellie: “Don’t you know? Sleeping Beauty is the Spanish way to say Snow White.”

Zach: “Mama, I’m gonna give you a kiss now. It’s gonna be a BIG ONE! Are you ready? Here it comes!”

Ellie: “Hoo-hoo-hoo is the Spanish word for whistle.” (Obviously, the girl is convinced she knows more Spanish than I do. Maybe so, but I’m pretty sure there’s a better way to say “whistle” in espanol.)

Zach: “Mommy, you’re my best friend ’cause I like you.”

Ellie: (while wearing a grass skirt) “Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Look, Mom! I’m doin’ the ‘Hallelujah Dance!'” (I think she meant ‘hula.’)

Me: “Zach, please don’t eat food off the van floor.”
Zach: “I’m not eating; I’m chewing.”
Me: “What are you chewing?”
Zach: “Food.”

Ellie: “That’s why I’m the big sister, Mom. ‘Cause I always know just what to do for little brothers.”

Talk to me!
