The Things They Say and Do – Week 4


It’s half term and Bonus Boy has spent much of this week trotting after his siblings like a puppy, building with Lego and wriggling across the floor wrapped in a blanket pretending to be a slug. He has made me laugh a lot and cry a bit.

When I refused to put the TV on for him he sent me a note which read ‘I hat [hate]you Mummy’ (that was the bit which made me cry a bit) but he followed it swiftly with another one which read ‘I sore [sorry] Mummy’ and I got a huge cuddle.

‘Mummy, I love you very much and I’d like to marry you if you weren’t already taken’

‘Mummy, your tummy is rumbling – shall I pop downstairs and make you a little sandwich?’

Me: I love you so much I could burst

BB: Oh don’t do that!

Me: I won’t it would be terribly messy

BB: And I don’t want lots of popped Mummy on the floor, I’d have to clear it up and I would be sad (at which point he started crying and I had to reassure him that I would not, under any circumstances, pop)

As I lay about lazily in bed watching Mr Thinly Spread get ready for work I was reminded of one of our personal favourites from last year ‘Daddy? Why are you putting underarm hair grow lotion on?’

To join in, write a mini blog post recording a funny/clever/eye-opening sentence, word or sound that your child has made or something they have done and you want to keep a record of. Come back here and pop your blog link on the linky widgit (highlighted in red) below this blurb. Please link back to me in your post and go and visit other people’s posts for a giggle/sob/eureka moment. Most of all, use it as a weekly prompt to remind you to keep a record of these precious moments before they slip out of your mind and drift off forever.
