Top 10: Funny Quotes from Our Toddlers

As toddlers begin to speak and interact more with their surroundings, the words that come from their mouths can be hilarious. We've surveyed Circle of Moms members for the funniest thing they've heard from the mouths of their babes, and we're cracking up over the responses. Below are 10 of our favorites...enjoy!

“When my 4 year-old was younger and learning his body parts he would call his elbow his ELMO, it was sooo cute that I never corrected him so now we all call our elbows our elmo's... even my fiance slipped [and] told me ‘today at work I hit [and] bruised my elmo.’ Very cute!” -Bec P.

“He says I wanna go beep. Instead of ‘sleep.’" -Lisa F.

"I definitely taught my 16 month old son how to yell 'SPARTAAAA!' dramatically with one fist to the sky...The best part of his newly discovered word is when he decides to scream it during 'Mail Time' on Blue's Clues, lol, good times.” -Sarah M.

“My 2 and 1/2 year old goes outside everyday and says, 'Hmm, sky turned the light on.’” -Rebecca B.

“She calls everyone ‘Bob.’  It doesn't matter if they are male, female, old, young, if she knows them or not. Everyone's name is Bob!” -Ranaye G.

“My child says 'pee cream' often, meaning 'ice cream!'"-Shalaina

“My one twin says vaccuum all the time fine and good but his v sounds like a F and forgets to finish it with a M.”-Olga K.

“He says 'I sowee' for I'm sorry, which we were working on when he hits or takes something that isn't his, but now he says it whenever he has a negative emotion (because it usually upset him to have to say sorry). So he'll be throwing a tantrum and screaming 'I Sowee!!!' at the top of his lungs. Or he falls down and says 'I sowee.' So sad, but in a cute way. :)” -Shandra S.

“My daughter Alivia who is 2 calls a fork a 'dork.'" -Elizabeth H.

“My two year-old son the other day got a 'booby:' booboo + ouchie = booby.” -Corin V.

My 2 1/2 year old loves to put on my heels, grab her purse, put on a bracelet and say " Bye bye Mommy, see you later. I'm going to the store (or going to work)" When I ask her if she has money to go to the store, she says "Um noooo. I have to go to the store to BUY the money Mommy." LOL, cracks me up every time. A little before she turned one, she started calling her grandpa "PumPum" and my uncle "Punkin". No idea where she got those but it's so cute!

My 2 1/2 year old always wants us to carry her (because we are carrying her little brother) so she will ask, "carry-you me?" Because we would always ask her "do you want me to carry you?" She also loves correcting us and her friends "It's not yeah, just yes."

I have an early talker baby, at 10 months she was mimicking me, I told to myself she would talk soon, at 12 months she spoke different words out from her books, at 15 months she tried to read her book to the cat, as she opened a page of the book which picture was dwarves swimming at the lake she said "the book the book to meow meow splasssh splassh!". I was amazed of her idea to read. At 24 months when her grand parents visited our home she pulled her grandpa and said "brapapapa sit on the sofa!" the grandpa sat on the sofa my baby sat beside him ang gave to him her book and said "brapapapa read!"

We got a new security system for our house and my 4-year-old daugher was concerned about why we would need that. We live in a nice neighborhood but had to have the 'robber' talk. Since then, she's called robbers 'Rogers' - and when it's raining just a bit, she says, 'Mom, it's only tinkling (you might say sprinkling).

We were sitting in the van waiting to pick up my daughter from school and the sun was right in my son's face. So he said "mommy, can you move the sun, its in my face." I reply "no bubby, I can't." Then he said, yes you can, you're mommy and you can do everything. He was 3 at the time.
