I have a lot of nieces and nephews and the things they say crack me up! Here are a few of my personal favourites!
- Niece to her dad (my brother) “Mamó (granny) said you’re a pain in the ass!” At least he was her son!
- Niece about a neighbour “Mammy why does she have black teeth?” Right in front of her I might add!
- Nephew about a kid in school “Mammy why does his daddy have marker all over his arm?” They were tattoos….
- Niece to me “If you’re mean to me I’ll lash you and throw you outside the door!”
- Nephew “I know why dadó (grandad) has such a big face it’s to match his belly!”
- My sister to my nephew “Do that once more and I tell ya………..” reply “What’ll you tell me mammy?”
- When I skidded across the floor and fell over my niece laughed and said “Good enough for ya!” I had told her off a few minutes before……..
- After calling my niece over and over again eventually she comes in for her dinner “I’m not deaf you know I was just having fun”
Out of the mouths of babes…….
