Do you ever find yourself saying the most random things to your children?
I know I can’t be the only one who says things that, when you repeat them, sound completely odd! I’ve started making a note of the more random things I’ve heard myself saying to my 15 month old daughter, here are 5 examples from the last few weeks:
Nerys has been climbing the stairs for ages now, and safely coming down them on her tummy for a few weeks, but she’s now started trying to walk down them. And the other day I watched her try to walk up them backwards. She’s an accident waiting to happen that one.
“What are you doing? Why are you licking my DVD?”
“Why are you standing in a colander?”
Well, why wouldn’t you stand in a colander, what else are they for?!
“I don’t want you driving a car on my head”
Mean mummy, not wanting to be driven on.
“I don’t want your snot up my nose”
Ah one of the more charming moments of parenting; lying on the bed with Nerys and having her stick her finger in her snotty nose then try and put said finger up MY nose. Hmmm, a kind offer, but no thank you honey!
