Here are some of the latest gems as they happened, word by word.
G: 'Mamma, I'm going to ballet then I have a babycino and then I go shopping'
Me: 'You were poorly yesterday so we can't really go anywhere, I'm afraid'
G: *looks at me with pity in her eyes* 'Really? I think you got a problem!'
*gives me a cuddle* 'Never mind'
G: 'Mamma, I don't want the carrots'
Me: 'OK. Eat the rice then'
G: *looks at me a bit crossed* 'What is the matter with you?'
G: 'You don't say what, you say pardon'
I was sitting at the dinner table with hunched shoulders holding my head in my arms because of a bad migraine:
G: 'Mamma, elbows off the table!'
Me: 'I have a bad headache so I'm holding my head'
G: 'Miss Emma* says you have a sad body**'Me: 'I don't feel well, G'
G: 'Show me your toes. Do you have naughty toes? Let me see...'
*Miss Emma is her ballet teacher.
** Miss Emma makes them sit up straight (happy body) or hunched (sad body)
