Many years ago a group of us adults were discussing the pros and cons of water beds which were wuite popular at the time. People were talking about how they slept, middle of the bed, side of the bed etc when a friend's per-school son chimed in with "Daddy sleeps on top of Mummy."
As I am rarely around young children, I cannot remember the last funny thing I heard one say. But I did a study on the language of children many years ago at school, and there was a book with many humorus things they said. They were not to do with a lack of self consciousnessthough, but father misunderstanding the way the English language is used.

My oldest daughter once asked me: Mum when you grew up were their dinosaurs?
When my daughter was little and being cheeky, I once chastised her and reminded her that, as a child, she shouldn't be disrespectful to adults. She responded promptly with..."but I'm an adult. I'm a big adult." She was only two or three! As an only child she was used to always being part of adult conversations, but being so young she was a bit foggy about manners. She's now 23 and we still laugh about this.
We have twin grandsons and when they see something go wrong or drop something they both say " Oh No"
Playing eye spy in the car on the way up to the river the 9 year old asks, "Eye spy with my little eye something beginning with P" we guess and we guess and eventually give up, he looks at us with this smug grin on his face and replies "the present" I think we all wanted to slap him - to this day we do not play eye spy with him.
Many moons' ago, was escorting a large group of children to Auckland. Lunch was being served, & one bright little fellow asked "do I get a choice?" to which attendant replied, "yes, you eat it or go hungry". All within earshot just burst out laughing!
My eldest daughter was having a 2nd baby. Our then 3 year old grand-daughter
said: If itís a boy baby, Iíd like it to be called, Risotto. And if itís a girl baby I want it to be called, Chilli. I started to like Chilli for a name, but 5 weeks after she was born, she was actually named, Ginger.
