Kids and the Ocean

 My kids often say the weirdest things. Just today, while going through my son’s Kindergarten phonics lesson, something he said made me suck in my breath!! Until of course, I looked over at what he was working on and then I laughed out loud. No need for a panic 🙂 The boy was working on the ‘ea’ phonetic combination. He read it right the first time, but then to be funny, he sounded out each vowel for itself. The word he was working on?  

Try it for yourself, do you hear what I heard??

This incident brought to mind an old post from October 2010. Thanks to Bill over at A Few Clowns Short, there is a place to post oldies, but goodies from your blogging history. Hop on over and read more of the BIONIPT: believe it or not, I posted this. If you have something good to repost, link it in 🙂

I wanted to share these but also wanted to warn you, kids do say that darnedest things!!!  We as adults must remember to be careful with our words, especially when kids are around.  They hear everything and repeat things without discernment!!!  I left this one un-edited because it just made more sense in some places, so if language really does bother you, skip this post!!

(Kelly, age 6)

2) – Oysters’ balls are called pearls. (Jerry, age 6)

3) – If you are surrounded by ocean, you are an island. If you
don’t have ocean all round you, you are incontinent. (, age 7)

and pots and comes back with crabs. (Millie, age 6)

7) – When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to
cross the ocean. Sometimes when the wind didn’t blow the sailors would
whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would have been
better off eating beans. (William, age 7)

8) – Mermaids live in the ocean. I like mermaids. They are
beautiful and I like their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get
pregnant? Like, really? (Helen, age 6)

a always crying, my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has
just got pregnant, so I can’t think what to write. (Amy, age 6)

can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I

she was going very fast. She says she won’t do it again because water
fired right up her big fat ass.. (Julie, age 7)

drown I don’t know. (Bobby, age 6)

15) – My dad was a sailor on the ocean He knows all about the
ocean. What he doesn’t know is why he quit being a sailor and married my
mom. (James, age 7)
