Toddler Talk Tuesday

Kids’ say the darndest things, and what comes out of the mouth’s of toddlers is often down right hysterical! When it isn’t laugh out loud funny, it can be so sweet it melts you heart. To help make sure I never forget these little toddler quips and because they make me smile, I have decided to share them in a weekly post called “Toddler Talk Tuesday.”

I hope you will join me in celebrating the funny phrases by sharing your your kids’ quirky comments. If you are a blogger, feel free to link up to this post via McLinky below. If you are a reader, leave comments sharing your favorite quote of the week. And even if your kids are past the toddler stage, I have a feeling they still have something silly to say – feel free to share! I look forward to hearing all the wonderful things your little ones have to say.

For my birthday weekend extravaganza, we spent the weekend at Disney. Of course, we have been talking about our upcoming trip for weeks and since the main focus was staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village, we talked a lot about seeing animals. For some reason my daughter got it in her head that we were going to a petting zoo. (I have no idea where this came from because it has been nearly a year since she has even been to a petting zoo, but she was set on going to a petting zoo.)

From the moment we arrived at the hotel, animals were everywhere! Giraffes and ostriches right outside our window, antelope down the hall. We saw TONS of animals, but it still wasn’t enough for K. At the Animal Kingdom, K kept asking to see “more animals.” So we headed off to the safari. It was the best safari I have ever been on at the AK. We saw every animal up close. The elephants put on a show squirting themselves and playing in the water, the giraffe were so close to the jeep I could have touched them (I didn’t want to get thrown out of the park) and even the lions made an appearance. But after we pointed out every animal K just said, “More Animals.” Over and over, no matter how cool the animal, “More animals.” There was a field guide above our seats in the jeep and she kept point to the guide saying, “I wanna see dat one, more animals.” We even saw the baby elephant born earlier this summer, “More animals.”

Finally, we made it to the petting zoo, and she visited the sheep, goats and cow. Finally, she stopped asking for, “More animals.” I guess that’s what she really wanted… to touch the animals.

  1. Wonderful and I LOVE Disney!

    My two year old, while on an evening bike ride with the family, says as we pull up to a dark, vacant house “Look Mommy. it’s so peaceful.”

    I agreed and laughed… where did she get THAT word peaceful?


  2. We went to Animal Kingdom in May, and my girls loved it too! The windows and lookouts throughout the hotel were definitely the best part–they could run up and down the halls and then stop on the benches and watch the zebras…toddler heaven! 🙂
