Meet Kellie Boston, a fabulous photographer and mama based in Fernandina Beach. She’ll be writing guest columns for Mamamelia from time to time. This one offers a very smart way to celebrate our kids’ unique little personalities and remember the off-the-wall sayings they come up with. It made me laugh out loud when I found it on her business’s blog, She was kind enough to let me repost it here. ~ Mamamelia


Kids Say the Darndest Things is definitely such a true statement! I have two children of my own, a 7-year-old and 3-year-old, and — as my oldest was growing up — I always wondered where he came up with some of the stuff he would say. Well, I started writing some of these things down to keep track of this and still to this day love reminding myself what he said. Now I have continued the tradition with my daughter. Here are just a few of my favorites:

  • When my son was 2 1/2 he fell and cut his lip. We were on our way to the hospital and I said, “Honey quit talking, it can’t stop bleeding.” He responded, “But I love to talk.”
  • Listen to your children sing their favorite song. For the longest time we heard, “Humpty Dumpty sat on Grandpa.”
  • At the ripe age of 6, my son asked, “Do only chickens have nuggets?”

Got to love these sayings. I recommend everyone write these little things down. Or even ask them questions that you think may have a funny answer and write those down.

Here at Boston Photography, we have “The Darndest Things” sessions. We recommend these sessions for children between the ages of 3 and 8 dependent upon the maturity level.

Prior to the session, we send the parents a list of about 30 questions that they ask the child, write the exact answer and send it back to me one week prior to that session. These are great. We then design the session around these and make a great keepsake coffee table book with the questions, answers, and portraits of the child.

    I could name dozens of adorable things. When my son first learned to count, he would say, “18…19…Tummy!” Before he could properly say his name, Scott, he told everyone his name was “Sock.” And one of my favorites: he couldn’t say “grandma,” so instead he let out a grunt that sounded like “hmm” and always included a wrinkled nose as he said it. Long after he began to speak in sentences, he was still in the habit of calling her that, much to her dismay!
