Stuff Sam says: Chronicles of a 7-year-old


Listening to some of the totally and utterly mad shit that children say is one of the simplest joys in life.

I discovered this in 2010 when my nephew, Sam, was born and subsequently started talking.

I thought the best way to introduce him would be to share some of the pearls of wisdom he’s given us in the last week alone…


After being discovered hiding behind the sofa while my sister and I had a conversation…



When filling in a humorous questionnaire at a baby shower…



On religion…

Jesus is imaginary


Discussing Plants vs Zombies with his mum…



When I asked him why he was wearing his mums (V-neck) t-shirt…



In addition to that, a few other things you might want to know about Sam:

  • He’s a Michael Jackson fan
  • He once got into trouble for circling all the bums on one page of a Horrible Histories book, and for labelling a character, ‘Buttface McGee’ on another
  • He loves sausage rolls
  • This Halloween he’s attending the school disco dressed as Freddie Mercury

I’ll be updating you periodically with Sam-isms, but in the meantime why not share some of the madness your nieces and nephews have come out with?

  1. That’s my boy. Quotable since birth. He was only 3 when he came out with such hits as;
    Old McDonald had a Bus
    Incy wincy spider climbed up the water bus
    Row row row your bus
    And the unforgettable We’re up all night to get bus (Get Lucky)
