Girls skipping at an athletics carnival asked me what's the funniest thing I've ever heard a child say.

That's a really hard one to answer because my kids come out with the most amazingly funny stuff all the time – but that's dependent on the context of knowing them and the situation they're in.

So, for example, when my eldest daughter sticks her foot in my face and says "Smell it! Smell da foot!" – it makes me cry laughing – though it probably didn't have that effect on you.

Or when our youngest, running around only in her underpants, suddenly yells out "Oh! My butt's on backwards! My butt's on backwards!" – again, you probably have to know her exuberant side to understand why that's so howlingly funny.

I'm sure others are going to find those sort of quotes that have insight for adults as well as kids, but for now, I guess I'll just have to settle for the fact that both our girls are just plain funny all the time – and that's good enough for me!
