The funny things they say and do: You’re getting old

After my first day back at work after the half term, I was feeling it a little. It had been a tough day and I was feeling a tired and achy. As I lowered myself down towards the sofa to sit down and relax after cooking the children their dinner I said

“I’m all achy. Maybe I am coming down with something!”

My eldest son replied

“Yes, It’s called old age!”

The cheeky not so little thing.

 

On the last day of term, the boys came home from school and started emptying their bookbags. taking out pictures that they had done, letters and homework that needed to be done. My little one, who is 4, emptied the whole contents over the living room floor. Looking very distressed, rummaging through the contents, he was obviously looking for something. I asked what he was looking for and he replied that he had painted a card and couldn’t find it. I comforted him and told him that maybe it was still wet which is why the teachers never handed it to him at the end of the day and that it would still be there when he gets back after the half term holidays. My heart ached a little as I remebered that it was Valentines day at the weekend and he had probably made a card for me. Well… On the first day back to school, his childminder brought him to me and he came running over to me, holding a pink card in his hand. Smiling from ear to ear.

“Mum. Here’s the card that i forgot in school!” I took it from him and looked at the front. There was a big red heart that had been painted with red paint and inside was a little valentine message.

“Aw! Oliver that’s lovely, Thank you!” Remembering that last day of term and how distressed he was over not having the card. I bent down to give him a cuddle

“It’s not for you Mummy, It’s for Nanny!”

I opened the card and sure enough there was a message to Nanny and NOT Mummy. And there was me thinking that I was the only lady in his life 🙂

Do your children say and do funny things?

What you doing Mum?

Do your children constantly ask you the same question over and over?

Oliver, my 2 year old is learning new words daily and often surprises me with the range of vocabulary that he uses, you can have a proper little conversation with him.

He does make me laugh with some of the words that he uses, like the other morning when I tried to wake him he just covered himself back up with his blanket, pulled it up above his head and told me to go away

“Mum leave me alone, I want to sleep”

” It’s time to get up Oliver, Mummy has to got to work”

“Mum it’s too difficult for me to wake up, it’s not that easy you know! Give me 2 more minutes”

I had no idea how to answer this one as I wasn’t expecting a child of mine to do that until at least they hit their mid teens!

Oliver’s new words, as of today, is a question and one that he has constantly asked me all day long…….

What you doing Mum? ten seconds later …. What you doing Mum? Ten seconds later …..What you doing Mum?

No matter how many times I answered him he just kept asking me the same question over and over and again

What you doing Mum? I’m tidying up

What you doing Mum? I’m washing up

What you doing Mum? I’m sitting down

What you doing Mum? I’m watching TV

What you doing Mum? I’m talking to you Oliver. Haha No Mum, really, What you doing?

arrrghhhhh! He has made me want to scream, until he asked me the last question before he fell asleep

Ask me what I am doing Mum?

What are doing Oliver? I’m going to sleep Mummy, Love you!

He must have asked me the same question about 10 times in 5 minutes, I wonder what words and conversations tomorrow will bring!
