Great Things Kids Say And Do
There is no denying, kids can say and do some great things.
Here’s some the Two Girls have enjoyed lately.
Great Scott, it’s a nose ring!!
Miss M at almost three years, climbed up beside me
at the table and gently stroking the side of my face said, ‘Ohhhhh…..you have
something there! What is it?’
A shirt even kids love
A couple of months ago at Miss M’s house in the
country I wore my very cool shirt from Osaka. There’s no other way to say it,
the shirt is covered in trucks. Miss M climbed up on my lap and stroking my arm
said, ‘Ohhhh…I looovveee your shirt. It is beautiful.’
A shirt with trucks is always going to be a winner
It is what it is
I noticed Little Miss possibly 3 as I as leaving
work the other day, hand in hand with her dad and skipping beside him. Without
missing a beat of skipping she declared to her dad ‘Dad, I am a bit thirsty’ …
super cute, no tantrums, no demanding, quite simply telling it like it was!
Just like the movies
Miss S at 2 years hadn’t seen this One Girl, her
great aunty, for over a month. When her
mum pointed her out to me, she ran to me open armed … it was like one of those
scenes from a love story, only so much better, it was unconditional love, true
Seeing the beauty
On leaving my house, Miss S picked two tiny flowers
from my lawn and then declared to her mother ‘I just have to take these to Aunty’. The best flowers I’ve ever received!
Getting the message across
Miss B all grown up and 8 now, but before that big
life event, when she was 7, she called me on my birthday. I was at dinner and I
didn’t hear the phone when she first called.
I managed to pick up her second call and was pleasantly surprised to
hear her just start singing Happy Birthday.
She then proceeded to clap and count 40 times. On checking my messages later that night, I
found her earlier call delivered the same message, singing happy birthday and
clapping and counting to 40. I’m glad I managed to pick up on her second
attempt, poor girl must have been exhausted after all that singing and
The ultimate cooking compliment
Okay so Skater-boy is no kid but he’s not
officially an adult yet either. During the last school holiday visit I made a
Chocolate Roasted Coconut Tart with an Italian meringue topping. His draw
dropped when he laid eyes on it and when he tried it, declared gob smacked and
gesticulating emphatically towards the dessert, ‘THIS IS NINE AND A HALF OUT OF
I don’t know how I lost the half point.
When two realities meet
So still on Skater-boy, his best line was after I
told him I went to Zumba.
‘Zumba?’ he said, ‘I thought that was something
that only existed in Infommericals!’
What's in a compliment?
The Lovely Deputy and childers were over during
Christmas. At one point I said, ‘You have such lovely hands!’ Smooch, smooch.
To which ‘I’m the arty one’ said emphatically, ‘I don’t think that’s what people in
A dodgy reference
I took Elena and Ace out to choose their mum a Christmas present. I discovered they had lots of great ideas…for things they like
themselves. Mr Bean paraphernalia and a grow your own fungi bonsai were top of
the options. ‘No really, she would LOVE that!’
