After he watched something on TV and him learning about nutrition at nursery my wife explained artic exploration to our son and said that because it was so cold people had to eat lots and lots to keep warm.

He replied thta he wanted to explore Antarctica as he could then eat cake all day and play with penguins.

Didn't really want to join in this terrible thread, but I've just gone through some of my work notes and found the following message;

"Dad you ar popeey pans and but fancks for hepin me fum jack xxxxxxx"

Decoded and written in PROPER English is;

"Dad, you are a poopy pants and but thanks for helping me, from Jack"

Couple of things here to digest.. One, the TERRIBLE spelling and grammar - truly only seen in state school education.. This is unacceptable and very upsetting, I've obviously got a dumbass kid.

Two;  Jack is 2 and cannot hold a pen properly, let alone phonetically spell words (POORLY!).  Meaning, this must actually be the doing of my eldest son, who is 6.. 

And lastly, Three; How the hell did/does he know I got poopy pants?

Needless to say, I'll be ringing the school to have words about the state of his English, I'll be booking in some extra tuition and I think it's high time I changed my pants.

Poopy pants indeed! 😤

Have him watch The Thing, that should level him back out.

I think this threads great. The thread name however seems a bit full of itself. Surely “Kids say the funniest things” would have been better?! 😤

Thanks for saying you like the thread. The name seems a bit of a weird thing to get upset about (seen a few things like that on here recently) but sorry if it upsets you. I struggled to think of what to call it and that's a well known phrase as that's all I could think of at the time. You're suggestion makes me think of Bill Cosby because of that show he hosted but if any of the Mods want to change the name that's fine by me.

We're just on the wind up, don't take it personally or think too hard about it.

:)

It's a nice thread x

Haha I wouldn’t say I’m upset about it 😄 It’s just one of those phrases I’ve never been fond of, I don’t know why, I think it seems a bit lah de dah. 
 

No need to change it 😅

No worries, I'm really not fussed by names that much and it was the first thing that seemed to fit. Two people saying they weren't keen isn't going to upset me (now if there were 3 of you I'd be going full Harry Potter and crying in the cupboard under the stairs).

I'll agree the babes bit is a bit odd from that phrase... 

Oh balls, I guess maybe I don't like the name.. 

Off to the cupboard I go.

In the car earlier and Vindaloo came on. We were singing, "We will score one more than you" and my two and a half year old daughter said, "I can't score a goal I don't have my Aston Villa clothes on." And then she proceeded to get upset.

+1 for the thread name. It's perfect.

Nah man it's all good. I used psychological warfare on them and confused them into backing down themselves.

The six year old granddaughter announced that she has three 'true loves' at school, but they don't know about each other. 

I see trouble ahead.  :)
