5. “Mom, I promise I won’t ever chew on your bones. I promise.”
“My 3-year-old son generally has a happy-go-lucky attitude, so this is pretty odd.
Sometimes when he’s cuddling with his mommy, he’ll say, very seriously, ‘Mom, I promise I won’t ever chew on your bones. I promise.’
Absolutely no idea where he got this.”
6. “If you give me a cupcake I won’t cut your neck.”
“Kid (4-year-old): I want a cupcake.
Kid: I want a cupcake, please?
Kid: Whispers If you give me a cupcake I won’t cut your neck.”
7. “I’m not going to be four. I’m doing to die. And you will put me down, down, down in the hole.”
“I have a three-year-old who says some pretty strange stuff….
Last night: ‘Mommy.. the man, the very big man with big yellow eyes is looking at you.’
I look.. nothing. I tell him there is no man and he is make-believe. My son laughs, ‘Oh he is hiding now.’ — 2 minutes later, ‘Oh no Mommy, you made him very mad. Now he says he will come when you are sleeping.’
Few weeks ago he tells me, ‘I’m not going to be four. I’m doing to die. And you will put me down, down, down in the hole.’ I tell him that isn’t true, and who told him that. He gets quiet and goes, ‘The man told me. But I will be scared, so after three night-nights you die too and come with me.’
Sheesh. As if I didn’t have bad dreams already.”
