Things I Hear and Hope My Kids are Playing Minecraft

Things I Hear and Hope My Kids are Playing Minecraft

My kid have jumped on the Minecraft bandwagon with almost every other kid I know.  They played on our smartphones with the free versions for several months until they talked me into buying the Android App. For Christmas we bought them Visual Land tablets and the first thing they downloaded was the Amazon Appstore so they could get to Minecraft.  It turns out they have more options when playing it on the tablet versus the smartphone. They played for hours without bickering Christmas Day and the day after. For being 14 and 8, this is a major accomplishment and I was glad to see them bonding.

Today my friend’s son came over and all 3 of them immediately decided they were going to play Minecraft. With all 3 kids on tablets and synced in the same world, I sat down at my laptop to get to work. I didn’t get very much done before I began laughing listening to the things they were saying. If I hear them saying these things again, I hope they are playing Minecraft.

  • Do you have an axe I can have?
  • Who forgot to feed the pigs?
  • Do you want to live with me, I will make a double bed?
  • I have to eat food! I am dying!
  • I want wool!
  • Are you trying to kill me?
  • Can I help you kill him?
  • I can’t find myself!
  • I have to go kill some sheep, to pay my rent!
  • Come on Creeper, Come on!
  • I am giving you good wood!
  • Stop attacking me, I only have 1 heart left!

So if you are looking for something to make you laugh, just listen to your children playing video games. If you aren’t sure what they are doing and hear something that doesn’t sound quite right,go check they could be playing Minecraft.


Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (13). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
