Drinking Root Beard

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Zachary and the girls were having a talk about root beer {they have soda on the brain lately after we let them have some root beer floats recently}. Their talk quickly escalated into a 'fight' and so I had to stop and listen to what they were saying.

Z: No, it's root beard!

M: Root BEER, Zachary. BEER, not beard!

Z: No - it's root beard, because when you drink it, the foamy stuff gets on your chin and gives you a BEARD!


The girls were playing dolls in their room one morning and I listened in to the conversation their dolls were having after I heard the 'marriage' topic:

L: Will you marry him?

M: Marry him? No, I couldn't. I just met him....besides, I don't want to marry a man that stinks.

{Hygiene is important even in the doll-world}


Zachary heard the term 'tree hugger' somewhere and he was sitting at the table talking to himself one day:

"Tree hugger. Why would you want to hug a tree anyway?"

Just cracked me up because you could almost see the little wheels turning in his head and trying to wrap his brain around the saying.

Head on over to Mary's at Not Before 7 for some more Tiny Talk Tuesday!!


  1. Oh, these always make me laugh. Especially the doll one...

  2. The things kids say...I love it. Especially the stinky boyfriend doll. A girl has to have standards.

  3. hehehehehhe thats great! Beard!!

  4. I say the longer he thinks the word is "beard," the better. :-D

  5. your children are adorable.
    Zachary seems very bright for his age... has his own mind. :)

  6. Too cute! I love the things little kids say. Stop by my blog, I have something for you. :)

  7. I love the theory of root beer versus root beard, and believe it should be root beard. It makes sense and it really and truly is not BEER after all!

  8. I thought the root beer thing was going to go down a different line of conversation. Does Zachary know what real beer is? :) "Beard" is a great substitution in root beer!

  9. Those were truly cute... the doll and tree hugger comments made me LOL!

  10. I love Zachary's reasoning there!

    I can totally picture the wheels spinning in that last comment - you can't quite capture it in text, but when you see it, it is so cute.

    Happy TTT!

  11. Such cute comments! It is great that you are recording them. We forget so easily!

  12. My kids call it Root Beard also ;)
