We all know that kids say the darndest things, right? Well motherÂ Lisa Brazier is capturing these quips and quotes from her daughters and posting them with photos on her Instagram page, mummypiggles. It is all too easy to get bogged down in the struggles and troubles of today, so it’s nice to see a little comedic humour popping up.
Brazier spoke to the Huffington Post, saying:
“I think there’s so much pressure on parents to create and portray an image of perfection when it comes to raising children at the moment.”
“For me, it’s the perfectly imperfect moments that need capturing â€• moments for me like, when my kid told the local priest that he was wearing ‘a nice dress,’ when my daughter had a full meltdown because she thought I’d said ‘goodnight Nigel’ instead of ‘goodnight Angel,’ or when we role-play ‘Frozen’ (the girls are Anna and Elsa and I have to be ‘Pisdoff’),” she added.
Brazier hopes and believes that her posts will reassure other parents that they’re not alone in being imperfect parents, and that they too have to deal with all kinds of ridiculous situations on the daily!

“MUMMY! I picked you a bogey!” “No, Alice. I really don’t want it, thank you.” “It’s for you. It’s yellow. You can hold it when you get married.” *runs up with a bunch of leaves* “Look. It’s your bogey of flowers.” “Aaah okay. You pronounce it bouquet. Thank you.” 🍂 #outofthemouthsofbabes #shitmykidsays #convoswithmyfouryearold #mummypiggles
“What did you have for lunch today?” “We had sausage and balls again.” “Okay Isla, what ARE these balls? Can you describe them? I have no idea what they are.” “Er, they are round and have crust on them. When you bite them, white stuff comes out. I had them with beans.” 💛 #schooldinnuendo #shitmykidsays #outofthemouthsofbabes #convoswithmyfiveyearold #mummypiggles
“We have bonfire night because a long time ago, a man tried to blow up some houses filled with sweets and the King.” “So why do we have fireworks then Isla?” “To celebrate them shooting Guy Fawkes in the neck so he couldn’t do it again. Now he knows because he’s dead.” “Oh, okay Isla. Hooray.” 🎉 #outofthemouthsofbabes #shitmykidsays #convoswithmyfiveyearold #mummypiggles
