Things Olivia Says – Volume 2

It’s time for another round of Things Olivia Says!  These things pile up so quickly these days I feel like I could write a book.  I haven’t done one in a long time for Olivia so some of these little anecdotes are from last year.

First off, the way that she says certain words is just so stinking cute!

September 2016 – Peanut butter and jelly sandwich is “peanut and jelly swimmich”

September 2016 – Chick-Fil-A is “Chick-A-Way”

March 2016 – M&Ms are “nim nims”

Now for some funnies…

December 25, 2015

Brian walks into the room.

Olivia to Brian: “Hey babe!” 

(Because she hears me call him that all the time.)

June 16, 2016

We sometimes let Jacob have Cap’n Crunch cereal for breakfast.  One morning, Olivia asked for a few pieces so I gave her some.  She was so excited that she started yelling, “I GOT CRAPPIN’ CRUNCH, JAY-CUB!”  And she kept saying it over and over again… CRAPPIN’ crunch.  I still laugh when I think about it.  Although, I guess that’s not the first time she’s inadvertently had a potty mouth

September 5, 2016

As we stepped outside on this particularly hot day…

Olivia: “It’s spicy outside!”  

(Because apparently “spicy” and “hot” are always interchangeable.  Lol.)

October 5, 2017

Olivia: “I want to go tee tee on the big potty.” 

Me: “OK” as I sit her up on the big toilet. 


(God bless her for wanting to do every single thing like her big brother does.)

 “I love God soooo much… He not scary!”  *While shaking her little head in earnest.*

January 15, 2017

Olivia: “I wanna go out of town.” 

Me: “To where?” 

Olivia: “I wanna do all the things!” 

January 18, 2017

Olivia points to a zit on my chin: “Mommy, you have polka dots on your face!”

January 25, 2017

Olivia: “I think I’m not going to be able to tell Daddy because he’s in Ra-Taco… taco… hahahaha.” 

(Brian was in Chicago and that’s what she was trying to say, and then she cracked herself up when she realized she had called it Ra-Taco.)

January 29, 2017

While riding in the car listening to music…

Olivia: “I wanna crack it up, Mommy!”  

(Crank it up.)

February 5, 2017

Olivia always gets two jelly beans after she goes potty, and on this particular day, she stands up and says, “Well, I’m not going to be able to have a treat since we ate all the jelly beans.” 

*Jacob’s eyes are as big as saucers.* 

Me: “Where are the jelly beans?” 


After prodding them for answers, we found out that they had shared the rest of the entire bag of the jelly beans that we use for potty treats, and they had made it two whole days without us finding out, until Olivia accidentally squealed.

February 28, 2017

Olivia on her play cell phone: “Hello?   Oh hey, Cinderalla.”

*Pauses to wait for Cinderella’s response.* 

“I had a wonderful day, yes!  There was a dinosaur in my room!  OK, bye!”

And that’s life with kids!

Don’t forget to link up with us for our Girl Chat tomorrow… we’re talking about a time that we were really lucky!  See you then!

  7. Gosh I love these!!! She is so funny. I've been writing down things jack says and they are cracking me up.

  8. OMG she is such a little doll. I love it. We are just getting into the 'funny things' toddlers say, I seriously cannot wait to watch it happen. This week Jackson looked at my husband and said 'Hey Michael'. HAHA his daddy was NOT happy and very sternly said you call me DADDY, not Michael ;-)

  9. Baha ha! Marissa used to always intermix spicy and hot too. It's pretty much adorable. I love that she called Brian babe too. She is just the sweetest.

  14. This post is SOOO adorable! I love how she says "M&M's". My little boy pronounces them "nem-e-nems". And I love it! I hope he never corrects it!

    1. I know!!!! Those are just the sweetest things that you never want to go away. It's always so sad when they start pronouncing something correctly that they've been saying wrong for so long. :o(

  15. Hahaha! I would have a ball with her, she is adorable and I loved everything about this!

    1. Yes they are, and I'm sure your babies will love to be able to look back on them one day!

  17. Connor will not stand up. Unless he stands ON THE TOILET SEAT. What in the world?
