Sayings of the Mancub 4

The Mancub is now 3 and very very chatty. Good entertainment too. Here are some of his recent comments.

I'm giving my baby a small number of sweet cereal because she's small and has a smaller liver.
Note parents who have been explaining why small chidren shouldn't have alcohol

I found a good path back to the Bible cottage
Walking back to our friends' house at a Bible college 

Before we came to Tanzania, were we dead?
From a boy who's trying to understand the concept that we haven't always lived here and we won't always live her.

I think I got this tub out Easter day
you mean yesterday 

Russia's a very big country
rather randomly in the middle of a phone conversation with Grandma

Oh the grand old Dupe of york
He had thousand men
He marched them to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again
And when theywerenup theywerenup
And when theyweredown theyweredown
And when theywereonly half way nup nor down

and my current favourite, from a Mancub who's discovering letters and which words start with which letters, and knows that his name starts with an A...

Look! I did a letter! I writed the letter 'willy'! For William!

  1. I loved this. Freddie (3 ysrs 8 months)(now talking at last) has problems with many consonants and his favourite song at the moment is "tiggle, tiggle, widdle far..." sung to the tune of twinkle twinkle little star". Must be something in the genes. George (2yrs 5 months) is copying all his phrases and intonation. But at least he has made an earlier start in communication even if no one can understand it.
