At playgroup today I was cleaning a table top after a bout of very enthusiastic cupcake icing. Two little girls came over and when I explained what I was doing and why I had to do it before I came outside they wanted to help. So I sprayed the cleaner on the table and gave them some kitchen roll to help.

Little Girl 1: I'm helping. I'm being very helpful aren't I?

Me: You are, yes. You both are.

Little Girl 2: I'm cleaning really hard. Otherwise the ants will come in.

LG1 (losing interest big time): Do you like my top? It's very pretty isn't it?

Me: Yes it is. And yes, LG2, we don't want any ants do we?

LG2: No. They will eat the table.

Me: The table? I'm not sure ants eat tables.

LG2: They do. And it'll make them FAT.

Me: Well we don't want fat ants do we?

LG1: I like your hair bobble.


  1. Aww! That is so sweet! It reminds me of conversations I seem to have with little children. LG1 also reminds me of me, I am easily distracted by pretty, sparkly things!

  2. LOL! I love the random "I like your hair bobble" at the end. Kids say the darndest things, don't they?! :)

  3. Awww! I LOVE conversations with kids.

  4. hahahaha the kiddies are so funny i LOVE IT!!!!
    please don't leave there :( it brings so many funny moments!!
