Have my breath:The funny things they say

Do you ever have any of those moments with your little ones when all you can do is laugh at the words they say?

My youngest has me in fits of laughter sometimes and I laugh that much that I have no idea how to answer him.

One morning we was walking to the childminders house, when Oliver started to complain that he was tired. considering we had only left the house 5 minutes earlier I told him to carry on walking for a little bit longer and If he was still tired then I would carry him for a little of the way to give him a little rest. As we got around the corner about to cross the main road, he stood in front of my, raised his arms up towards me and said ‘Pick up’ I looked down at him and could see that maybe he was a little tired so I picked him up. Bearing in mind that I don’t just have him to carry I have his rucksack with spare clothes in it, his pack lunch bag, his school book bag and my own handbag, after about 5 minutes i was beginning to tire myself out. I took a big breath and puffed out…

Oliver: “Mum, what are doing?”

Me: “I’m tired Oliver”

Oliver: “Why?”

Me: “You and your bags are heavy and I’m getting out of breath”

Oliver: “Oh!”

He then began to start blowing out his breath all over my face

Me: “What are you doing?”

Oliver: ” I’m giving you some of my breath, because you said you had run out!”

I could only answer with a little kiss to the cheek and a giggle.

 

Oliver is a little grafter and is always happy to help you, he is the first at the front door whne the grocery shopping arrives, he is the first to run off and do jobs for you and he is the first up at the table to do some work. He doesn’t get much homework as he is in Nursery at school but he likes to be jusy like his brothers and when they are doing their school homework he likes to join in. I print out some work for him from the internet and he sits down and does it before i even have to ask him.

I'm doing my important work
I’m doing my important work

He likes to call his work ‘Important school work’. I just hope this attitude and commitment to work grows with him.
