Welcome to Addicted to Quippsy! We are mothers and fathers from all over who know how important it is to preserve memories of your children growing up—particularly the hilariously clever things they say all the time!

And there’s no better place to do it than our favorite site—Quippsy!

How about these from the mouths of our kids:

“My heart was about to pound, but it didn’t!” -Josh, age 9 (after hearing some scary news)

“I’m 1.1% starving.” -Billy, age 8 (apparently not very hungry)

“He’s my favorite teacher in the whole wide school!” -Cara, age 6

Add your own! If you’re like us, you hear gems like these every day.

  1. I love this! I have often recorded convos that I have with my youngest on Facebook, I really love the idea of possibly making them into a e-book or even a hardback book one day.

  2. As a new Spikey, you’ve joined a growing clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious; email me.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great day…


  3. Thanks so much for following my blog! I had a moment of deja vu when I checked out your blog and saw the same theme as Growth Chart! I hope you find Growth Chart interesting, informative, and maybe even entertaining. Have a great day!

  4. Children are God’s greatest gift to humanity, but especially to women. It’s unfortunate that lesbian-led, radical, second and third-wave feminism, over the last 45 years, has convinced millions of women to value their “career” more than their children. More unfortunately, they have convinced gullible women everywhere to replace their Christian faith with feminist ideology. Your website is an oasis of joy. Thank you for following my blog.

  5. Thank you for liking my most recent post and following my blog. I LOVE the name of this blog!!! Makes me smile. I have enjoyed reading a few posts, too.

  6. Thanks for the follow on Mama Gets Real! This blog is such a wonderful idea. Looking forward to reading more of the crazy things kids say- my own provide me with hours of entertainment!

  7. Brilliant site! I have three kids that come up with some gems, would love to share. Thanks for making this forum possible, after all we are never wiser than our kids. Cheers !

  8. Thanks for visiting my “Brain Leaks” blog… as you may know from that, I’ve been writing down things kids have said to me and it became a book–Small People–Big Brains. We can learn a lot from them!

  9. Thank you so much for the follow. I enjoyed reading many of your posts; how they reminded me of when my kids were younger, such laughs I had! Hope this concept takes off & lasts for years, because often humor is the best medicine when you are parenting.

  10. Thank you for following my blog. I have a lot to learn from you…love what you do here…Will keep coming back for more!

  11. Thanks for the follow – I’ve been busy writing and editing so I haven’t paid attention much to other items until today. Your blog reminds me of the show hosted by Bill Cosby in the 80’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things” which was based on an Art Linkletter radio program. And now I’ve totally just dated myself 🙂

  12. Hi! Thanks for following my blog. This is a wonderful idea for a blog…sadly, my little one is non verbal…but it doesn’t stop her being funny. Looking forward to reading your posts. Anne @ mykidlovesbroccoli
