Is it teething time for your little one?

From describing certain bodily functions in a busy supermarket, asking innocent questions that don't sound quite so innocent, to having hilarious names for things, kids say the funniest things on a daily basis.


And while it is a little tricky to keep track of them everyday, there is always one comment that stands out each month.


We asked MummyPages Mums what was the most amusing thing their little one said this January, and this is what they said... Brace yourself for a good old laugh-out-loud session. 


1. Tanya, Meath: "Mammy why has that lady got a moustache????.....oh cringe."


2. Caitriona: "I was at FHC preparation mass recently and my then 3yr old daughter told me, during a silent few moments towards the end of mass, quite audibly, that she had done a fart! She then asked me could I smell it.......?"


3. Leigh: “My 3 year old proudly announced to her Grandad that she can multitask, cos she can sneeze and fart at the same time!!!”


4. Yvonne: “I was singing along to CBeebies and my 3 year old little boy was not impressed... "stop Mam stop! That's the noise of the horses" There goes my X Factor audition...”


5. Edel: “Oh my god, imagine you didn't have a brain! You wouldn't be able to think. Aoife, Age 5”


6. Deirdre, Dublin: “My two year old was chatting with my three year old one day on the luas going over the Liffey, my two year old informed my 3 year old that the Liffey had no crocodiles or octopus, the 3 year old agreed, my two year old then informed him that they live in the Dodder!”


7. Ann, Carlow: “Mammy why does Charlie have my mickey in his hand!! my 1 1/2 year old had mickey mouse [and] the 7 yr old wasn't impressed”


8. Jane: ”My daughter told me she told the teacher she hears mummy & daddy in bed at night. When I asked what she hears she replied you watch videos on your phone and laugh! I bet the teacher didn't ask for further explanation!”

10. Jody: “I'm on a diet and have lost 6lb in th last 3 weeks, my 6 year old son turned to me yesterday in the car and said"wow mummy look at your belly it isn't touching the steering wheel anymore!"

18. Jessica, London: “My son has started to stand next to me when we're out shopping and ask strangers where his mummy is,leaving me to stand their laughing out of embarrassment and walking away with a child this person now thinks has been stolen."
