Elliot: What happened to her?

Clementine: Owie?

Me: I don’t think so. I think she’s just resting.

Clementine: Boo-boo?

Me: No, I think she’s just fine.

Elliot: She’s going to fall in the water and drown and get eaten by sharks.

    HAH!!! Classic!!!

  2. Grandma G says:

    Well, there ya have it! LOL Silly pose, anyway, right kids? ;)

    (From my iPad!!!)

  3. Emmalina says:

    She certainly looks like she could stand to eat a pie or two! I love the way kids see things so clearly!

  4. Raven says:

    I think the sharks would throw her back; too boney.

  7. Holly says:

    Toddlers say the funniest things-no filter at all. Love it!

  8. kricket says:

    auntie is so proud…love them.

  9. Melynda says:

    Ha- so truthful and honest. Magazines should seriously have some kids around on photo shoots in order to bring in a touch of reality.

  10. erin says:

    LOL, so cute!

    DH and I enjoy coming up with similar types of captions for J Crew catalogs. They are so absurd!

  11. Sage says:

    Hahaha! That’s just perfect. I never knew getting eaten by sharks was a harzard for models. Thanks for the laugh on this busy Friday. :)

  12. Jenny says:

    Hilarious! Yesterday my 2yo said he could hear his heart beating, and asked me to turn it off.

  13. The Tiny Homestead says:

    hah, love it. My Mom and I used to go through the Pottery Barn and other catalogs commenting on the implausible set ups and precarious flower arrangements.

  14. Rachel says:

    Like I always say, adults just try too hard sometimes to be artistic. Just ask any child under ten.

  15. Myrnie says:

    I love it! You should ask Max what SJ thought the gardener was doing when he was late. It involved a lot of sound effects….booms… haha. Can’t wait for Coco to grow up ;)

  16. Erin says:

    Ha!! too funny…. he’s probably right though.

  17. CitricSugar says:

    That’s hilarious!

    I haven’t been by in a while – apparently, my link to your blog in my blogroll was broken. Good thing I checked! lol. I’ve been missing good stuff!

  18. Giedra says:

    Ha, I’ve been thinking that their catalogues have been kinda strange looking lately. Love it!

  19. Summer says:

    Haha, I love the dramatics! *cue Jaws theme music*

    Thanks for the laugh!

  20. Max says:

    Oh WOW! This had me in stitches! So amazing

  21. Megan H says:

    Oh my gosh – so funny! “Boo-boo?” Your kids are the cutest (right after mine ;-) ).

  22. Jessica says:

    Bahahaha! Or maybe eaten by that huge crocodile (alligator?) from “Lake Placid.” You know, where Betty White was feeding cows to it?

  23. Melanie says:

    That was too funny!!!

  24. angie says:

    From the mouths of babes. I love it! Have a great weekend.

  25. Venus says:

    That’s why I don’t swim in large bodies of water.

  26. My 22 month old, Jane said “Lady SAD!:”

  27. mauri says:

    this is a hilarious post. I, too, wondered about this cover when I got it. All I could think of was “that doesn’t look comfortable, bet she has a bony back, too” and… “how nice it must be to sit down!” (I chase a 14 month old a lot right now).
    Gotta love their catalog, though, right? Inspiration galore! :)

  28. Heather G says:

    Love it!

  29. Kayla says:

    Haha, I love it!! Thanks for keeping me laughing while im at work! I was wondering why an Anthropologie cover was on your email! Priceless! And that Elliot! Typical little boy! :D

  30. Layla says:

    Ha ha ha!!! That was FULLY AWESOME

  31. anissa says:

    Ha! There’s a good reminder of how differently small ones think…and how crazy the world we live in is to them sometimes. Funny.

  32. Ammie says:

    Love love love that! She is shading her eyes as if she had bumped her head, and lying on the ground like that is pretty weird. :P So cute for the kiddos to call it like it is.

  33. Susan says:

    This post concept could be an entire blog. :-) Love those little minds at work.

  34. This is hilarious!! Thanks for sharing, Rae. Nothing like a toddler’s perspective to point out the beauties and absurdities in life.

  35. Kell says:

    OMG! Too funny. I love what kids come up with.
