Ollie Says

I’ve been saving up a few funny Ollie quotes to do a post on the silly things he says – he seriously makes me laugh every day.  Two can be frustrating at times, but it can also be a hilarious and super fun age.  So, here are some of my latest favorite Ollie-isms.


At dinner one night he was sitting in a big boy chair and kept getting down from the table.  I finally said “Ollie, I didn’t excuse you from the table.” Ollie responds (loudly) “Excuse me table!” Nate and I had to try not to laugh, though Nate pointed out “Well, he’s not wrong!”

While playing catch with a soft sided ball in the house, he kept saying “good catch mama!” and I’d tell him “good catch Ollie!” At one point it bounced off the wall and Ollie said “Nice catch wall!!”


Leaving my parents house the other day my mom said “See you tomorrow Ollie!” To which Ollie replied “see you tomorrow! But not today!”

When he’s on time out it can be really hard not to laugh.  He’ll say “Time out” and we’ll say, yes, you’re on time out. Then he’ll say “we’re not playing now!” No bud, we’re not playing now.

I love the filters on Snapchat, I have no shame.  I like to take funny pictures with Ollie and the other day there was one with a beard.  I took the picture and he took one look at it and said “that’s daddy!!”


And my personal favorite right now, if you ask him to do something and he doesn’t want to, his response is “Um, no thank you.” You can’t blame the kid for being polite!

I try to write some of these things down because I want to remember them, but in the moment I often forget, so I’m sure there are more silly things he’s said lately, but those are just a few of them.  Out of the mouths of babes, right?

  1. Adorable! That kid is special. I could tell the minute I met him. These humorous remarks display intelligence and creative thought. He really looks like his daddy with a beard!

  2. Too cute, I love these posts! I love hearing the things their little minds come up with. His “but not today!” cracked me up. Such a cutie 🙂

  3. Good job! I wish I would’ve for my older kids. I do remember some great ones. Conner one time when he was about Ollie’s age came in to the kitchen extremely frustrated and when I asked him what was wrong, he told me that his pants were discombobulated. My daughter used to call her fingers fing-fings, slippers slip-ips and pronounced her w’s as y’s for some reason (yindow instead of window). I can’t wait until Reilly starts talking like this! I swear it gets a bad rap and some of it isn’t great, but 2-4 is the funniest age!
