Funny stuff children say


mum and son

Oisin and I in Alpe d’Huez earlier this year

So there was this little Q&A circulating recently – you probably saw it – where you had to ask your kid a series of questions and record their answers as they said them. Of course hilarity ensued and some of the answers were PURE GOLD (see number 19 for a case in point).

Partly because I don’t want to forget all the funny things my 8 year old Oisin thought/said and partly because I think you folks might enjoy reading the following, I have decided to share his answers here (with my response in brackets).

Enjoy 🙂
