The Things They Say and Do – Muddled Up Words and Wobbly Teeth


I wish I could bottle him at the moment and keep the essence of 6 for whenever I feel in need of some warm snuggliness and a bit of lunacy. He is so excited that he has his first wobbly tooth and is wandering around looking a bit dopey as he pushes his lower front tooth with his tongue. He can’t wait to look like a pirate and keeps bursting into a jolly rendition of  ‘A pirate’s life is the life for me tiddly om pom pom, tiddly om pom pee’ complete with bandy legged dance and side kicks.

He is also using the word ‘Fablious’ a lot which I love and can’t quite bring myself to correct. So many of those words were here and gone in a matter of moments. We will always call umbrellas ‘umberleyleeohs’, he, alas, no longer does.

He’s a bit frisky at bedtime, which is all part of being six. I asked Mr Thinly Spread to go and check on him a couple of evening’s ago and this arrived in the kitchen

Not asleep then?!
