Arm Ankles & Thumb Toes

Note to self: file this under the cute things my kids have said... 

The kids were playing the other day and Ruby ended up pulling on Memphis' arm
(shocking right?  my kids aren't angels afterall). 
She yanked hard enough for him to scream out ''Ow! You're hurting my arm ankle!''
We all stopped what we were doing... even Ruby.  Arm ankle!?  We were momentarily confused... but it didn't take me long to realize what he really meant was his wrist!! 

FYI - his arm ankle was fine & Ruby was scolded appropriately for playing too rough...

That whole scene reminded me of how my kids always call their big toe their ''thumb toe.''  Can you get any cuter than that!? I've always loved that they say that, but I don't think I've jotted that down anywhere but here, today, and it's something I really want to remember.  
What are some of the cute things your kids have said lately?

Pin It


  1. awe, soo cute!
    My boys used to call their back of the knee(?) (hmm I guess I don't know what to call it either) their kneepit (as in armpit) and they still call porcupines pokey-pines which I absolutely love :)

  2. That is so funny! Reminds me of the time my brother said a caterpillar turns into a raccoon which turns into a butterfly.

  3. That is funny ... I think of a single thing that my kids say .... either I have dull kids or I'm a bad mom....

    mmmh probably the latter

  4. oh i have many!! LOL
    I love how Maddy is learning Days of the Week in English and in French and when she gets it wrong and you correct her, she`s just like `whatever - you know what i mean`

  5. hahaha arm ankle oh man it's amazing!

  6. That's awesome!

    The other day my youngest (he's two) said "Daddy's nice"

    The oldest (5) replied "Daddy USED to be nice, until he turned into The Dark Side!"

    My husband and I could not stop laughing! No idea where he got this, he's never watched star wars!

  7. So cute! Thanks for sharing!
