sh*t spencer says

What better way is there to wrap up a week than to focus on the world according to Spencer? This boy, I swear. He is so insanely intuitive, and yet he's absolutely ridiculous, as well. He speaks a mile a minute - a far cry from where we were a year ago - and 90% of what he says cracks us up. Last night, for instance, we were talking to Oma on Facetime over dinner, and he was being particularly naughty. Oma asked if he wanted an ear flick, to which he replied, "No, I'm okay."

Three is such a funny year for us. He is so fun, and he is so challenging. He's turning into this tiny little human, and he's literally a sponge. He hears everything, and he just absorbs it all. It's fantastic and terrifying, and it makes for some of the funniest conversations. I've also learned that arguing with Spencer is like arguing with a tiny version of myself.

So, without further ado, here are some of our latest gems when conversing with Spencer...because I literally can't, and these need to be immortalized.

 // Regarding dinner: "It smells like cat food."
First off, what? Second, we don't even talk about cat food, so I'm not sure where he came up with this assertion.

// Also regarding dinner: "This is yummy cat food."
Hmmmm...thanks, I think? Also, how do you know what cat food tastes like?

// Picking him up from daycare: "Mommy! You came back for me!"
Of course I did, bud! I didn't realize there was another option.

// Unbuckling him from his car seat first: "Mommy! You picked me!"
When he says stuff like this, it makes me think I'm putting my kids through the Hunger Games or something. Like I've picked my tribute. 

// While Oma helps him use the bathroom: "Oma, Daddy's got a big weenie!"
If you could have seen my mother's face when he said this, you would have died. This isn't the first time he's discussed Daddy's bits either. Ask us about the time we were boarding our plane in London.

// Looking at my scars: "Mommy, you got four boo-boos? *Counts to fourteen*"
Exactly - I mean, minus 10 of those, but exactly.

// Picking songs at night: "I freeeeelyyyy want Mickey Mouse Craphouse."
One day we'll learn how to say Clubhouse properly. Until that day, we'll all sing about the craphouse together.

// Looking at the frog on the driveway: "Look! A f*cky!"
Personally, I hope this never stops. 

// Getting them up in the morning: "Hi Mommy! Happy to see you again!"
There's a funnier story behind this. When we went to South Africa for Christmas, we all shared a room, and Ryan and I did our best to sleep right up until 7. Each morning, I'd peek out of the corner of my eye to see Spencer watching me, waiting to see me open my eyes. The second he did, he'd say "Hi! Happy to see you again!" Again, I don't know where he learned this, but it's the best.

Honestly, these moments make mothering a three-year-old SO worth it. His funny, he's sweet, he's hilarious, and he's witty without even trying. Does it get better than that?!


  1. Oh my goodness, these are all SO good! Kids can be so darn funny LOL ;) Happy Friday!

  2. Ok seriously cracking up!!! All of this is just awesome. I can't with the weenie comment because something similiar just happened to us this morning in the bathroom expect my son was all up in my business. I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy these silly comments. The best!! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  3. Oh that boy! What a delight! I wrote down much of what they said and I look back and roll with laughter. 3 is crazy but oh so FUN! What a neat little man you have! xo

  4. Haha oh my goodness, the cat food comment. I feel like that is something my daughter would say.

  5. i am cracking up laughing!! Kids say the funniest stuff! Once when my son Dorian was about 2 years old, i popped in an old vcr tape that was from when i was 9 months pregnant with him, when he saw my big ole belly, he said" mommy who's that in your belly?" I said " that's you Boo( we call him boo) and he says" get me out"!! lmao kids and the sh*t they say.. you have yourself a comedian on your hands when he gets older... Nice :)

  6. I love the "happy to see you again!" - how cute! :)

  7. This is so funny to me because it is so relateable! My oldest was singing something totally random the other day and told me he learned it at school. I asked him when he went to school and he said, "When I'm 11, I will go to school..." Yes. Yes you will sweet boy.
    This really is such a fun stage!

  8. This is the cutest! It's so fun to hear what is coming out of their mouths!!

  9. A f*cky 😂😂😂😂 So great!

    When I was nannying, Jesse would always tell me I needed to write a book full of all of the funny things kids would say because I’d come home with so much to laugh about!

  10. Oh my goodness, this post had me in stitches!! I love how kiddos have absolutely no filter whatsoever and say such funny, sweet things!
