Pigtailisms I

I try and jot down funny things Pigtails says so I don't forget.  Perhaps I'll pull a few of these from the archives to share on her wedding day.   

Below are funnies I've heard her say just this week:

"Daddy even knows how to make pancakes, and he's not a girl."

"Be pa-stick-it."
She was trying to say "specific"
Her first time running a kids race with real running shorts that have a built-in liner

"Daddy, do you know how to crotchet?"

"My ankles hurt.  I think I'm getting old."

"Dad, that's annoying, please stop, literally!"
She mixes up "literally" and "seriously"

"I like to tuck the envelope flap in, rather than lick it.  I don't want to get saliva on their hands."  Explaining why she tucks and not licks the birthday thank-you cards she wrote

What funny things have you heard your little ones say?  Share below in the comments.



  1. Too cute. I know if it was me, I would appreciate the tucked enevelope; I agree with Pigtails on that one.

    When my daughter was little, she called piglets; oinklets...still does to this day because it cracks me up.

    Last week my kids were trying to compromise on what video to watch and my daughter said, "How about Carebears?"

    My son responds, "Nah, too fluffy."

  2. Too funny! I am a new stalker of your blog, I found you through Cari. :-D It is so nice to find a single daddy blog! I love to see the single parent take on things from a mans perspective, it's refreshing. I am looking forward to more posts about you and pigtails, who is absolutely adorable, what a smile!

    Have a great week!
