Out of the mouths of babes: KID -isms

You know, those funny things your kids say that you just HAVE to write down for posterity. Well, I was sitting here listening to Ashton ramble on about some movie, and a couple of kid-isms came to mind that my boys have said. I’ll quote them here as I remember them …. some are just a line or quote, some are actual stories….. Enjoy!


Now some of these are especially funny when you keep in mind that Ashton is autistic and also that some of these things were said a few years ago when the boys were younger.

Ashton (age 10) – “Hey Ladies! What’s crackin’?” – don’t ask …. I do NOT know where he picked this up! LOL

Holden (age 5) – “Mom, what was life like before cars?” – I couldn’t help myself, I BUST OUT laughing at that one! At the time, I was thirty years old, so therefore, am not aware of what life was like before cars. HAHA 😛 stinker! We told him that even his great-grandparents (Granny and Papa) don’t know what life was like before cars.

Ashton (age 10) – “I’m getting married today!” – this is a line from a movie, not quite sure which one but he was walking around and saying this at Thanksgiving – TOO funny!

Holden (age 3?) – “I’m going to take you out like batteries!” – said one night while horsing-around with his Daddy. He said it with the fiercest little look on his face. To this day (nearly five years later) we’re not sure where he picked up that saying from. We’ve googled it and searched for it on IMDb as I thought for sure it’d be a quote from a movie, but alas…. nothing.

Ashton (age 6?) – “But it’s not on my schedule!” – Keeping in mind that children on the spectrum are pretty schedule-dependent and need consistency, Ashton said this one evening while out at his grandparents house. We were attempting to get him to use the bathroom as well as get ready to leave and this lovely gem of a quote is what he came up with. He was SO RIGHT, it was indeed, not on his schedule! LOL

Holden (age 5?) – “I’m going to build a tunnel from my house to your house Grandma and everytime my mommy yells at me, I’m going to come over.” Then when he was asked what would he do if mommy came through the tunnel after him, he quipped “Well, I’ll just make it small enough so she can’t fit through!”  HAHA! He’s such a little charmer. This was prior to his ADHD diagnosis and we’d been going through a rough patch with discipline and behavior. Thought this was pretty funny 🙂

 

Ashton: Some acquaintances have “interesting” names! 😉
Corbin was “Baby Cornball”
Ella was “Baby Elephant”
Camille (former teacher’s aide) was “Ms Chameleon”
Holden is “Baby Swinub” (a pokemon character) – NO IDEA why he calls his brother that! LOL
Dr. Madren is “Dr Magic” …. Dr. Madren has gotten quite a kick out of this comment 🙂
Dr. Dozier is “Dr. Bulldozer” … hahaha, sorry! I think it’s funny! 😉 

Ashton: Fictional Characters
Abominable Hulk “Obama Hulk” – HAHA!!! 😉 

he came up with a list of names for family members once:
Daddy was a “Vampire”
Mommy was a “Mummy”
Ashton was a “Skeleton”
Holden was a “Ghost”
Grandma was a “Witch” (later corrected by Grandma as a “nice witch” LOL!)
Grandad was a “Werewolf”
Papa was a “Zombie:
Granny was “Herky Jerky”
Uncle Kevin was a “Prince”

Ashton said this wonderful gem last night
My, this is a tasty, tasty meal” …. huh?! LOL! I promise you, this was not anything special….. all he was eating was some ham and some pretzels. Apparently, according to him, it was quite tasty! LOL

…. more to come later 🙂

From a non-verbal, severely autistic two-year-old little boy to a happy-go-lucky, social, verbal and friend to everyone fifteen-year-old teenager. Add in the little brother who struggles with ADHD and we've got some craziness going on! The journey has been well-worth the ups and downs and the heartbreaks are all worth it when I see my sons overcome the "impossible" and defy all odds. I couldn't be more proud. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

    Awww, lol. I think once I asked my dad what it was like when they had to use horses to get everywhere instead of cars, and he looked at me and said, “horses weren’t invented yet.” Haha.

    HA Kids do say some crazy things. My Nephew tells me, “YOU’RE FIRED” when he gets upset. We have no clue where that came from.
