Sassy Things Kids Say

Tell Mommy: What's the Sassiest Thing Your Child's Ever Said?

Kids say the darndest things — some sweet, some mind boggling, some infuriating, and some downright sassy.

A friend who doesn't have children recently called me cracking up after hearing an exchange between a mother and a 3- or 4-year-old at the grocery store. The little girl was listing all the things she wanted to buy and the mom said, "You just want everything you can think of!" The girl looked up her and kindly — but oh-so-smartly — said, "I'm thinking about a cloud. They don't sell clouds." The mom? "You got me."

Once children begin developing a sense of humor — and ability to argue a point — parents are privy to cheeky comebacks daily. It's near impossible for me to keep a straight face when my kids shoot me a tilted look and clever remark, but I can't laugh when I'm on serious mom patrol. What's the absolute sassiest thing your child has ever spat at you?

As a little kid, I only ever got put in time-out in pre-school once (because I was the chatty one in class!). When my mom asked me what happened that I had to sit in the time out chair, I told her I wanted to see what it felt like.

LOL! One time, I was going to take my daughter to the park, and I put on one of my work t-shirts. She stopped me and said, "You have to don't wear that shirt, Mom, it's too yucky. You have to wear a pretty shirt." :O ?!

So cute! I once took my nephew for a huge ice cream like the size of sink covered in whatever he wanted. At the end of it, he said "the bacteria in my stomach are snorkeling through the melted ice cream."
