Backseat Conversation

Picture two toddler’s strapped into their car seats in the back of our van, this is the conversation I overheard on the drive to the grocery store.

2 year old: I have owie.

3 year old: *Gasp*! You have a owie? Where?

2 year old: Right here. (Pointing sadly to the mosquito bite next to her eye)

3 year old: Did you bang your head on the door and get that owie?

2 year old: (Nodding) Yeah.

3 year old: I’m so sorry you got a owie in your eye. Do you feel better?

2 year old: Yeah, I better.


3 year old: I have a owie too.

2 year old: *Gasp*! Owie too?

3 year old: Yeah, right here. (Pointing to a practically invisible scratch on her leg) I was running and running and then I fell down and got that owie.

2 year old: Fell down? Owie?

3 year old: Yeah. It hurted real real bad.

2 year old: Hurt? Cry?

3 year old: Yeah. I cried and cried.

2 year old: I tiss it?

3 year old: Yeah, you can kiss it.

2 year old: (Blows kisses in the general direction of the scratch)

3 year old: Thank you! It’s all better!

2 year old: Yay!


2 year old: I have owie right here. (Holding up her finger)

3 year old: *Gasp*! You have a other owie?!

    This is hilarious – I love that kids say the funniest things but with each other is even better. The comedic effect is priceless.

    My daughter just learned to say owie too and she's been really "working it". The pout, the sad face, the wide innocent look, the fishing for a kiss. Too cute!
