Sometimes words come out of my mouth and I'm a bit like, did I actually say that? Did I really?! Likewise, things that my son says either have me stifling laughter, thinking where the hell did he learn that or agog and hoping he never repeats that in public......ever! As I said in my post the other day, being a Mum of 2 certainly comes with challenges but also that I'm constantly sounding like a broken record and repeating myself over and over again, quite often the same random sentences that I thought I would never hear myself saying!
Here is a little selection of some of the things that I've found myself saying and that Alfie has come out with!
'Alfie stop pulling Winston (cat) tail/ear/fur/paws..........'
'Alfie don't sit on the cat.............or your sister, definitely don't sit on your sister!'
'Don't poke your sister in the eye.............or hit her on the head and definitely don't try and pick her up (on your own)..... too late, arghhhh, let Mummy help.
'Alfie stop bouncing/rocking/kicking the jumperoo, and definitely don't push it over'.........too late, oh nooooooo *as I then see said jumperoo being flipped over with baby legs suddenly in the air.......said baby giggling manically, phew, crisis averted kind of'.
'Put your clothes on, why have you taken them off? You're naked again.......let me get you dressed'. Generally fighting a losing battle.
'Mummy, I want some beer, I want some beer now.......'. (Just going to leave this one here.)
'I just don't like you Mummy. Leave me alone, I just DON'T like you, go away!!!!' - Thanks son!
This was said to friends of my parents..... 'Thingyy, chase after me, thingy.....!', luckily we all found it quite amusing, including 'thingy' aka Dave!
'Alfie......don't you dare throw my phone/laptop/makeup/your sisters dummy/my bra/your pants/the remote/ornaments down the stairs/out of the window/behind the sofa/out of the car.....'
Alfie: 'It's gone now......but it wasn't me, I didn't do it, I definitely didn't do it Mummy!'.
At least he now knows how to pronounce 'helicopter', when he was younger for some bizarre reason helicopters were 'telefu*kers'...... I have no idea. However this did turn into quite an embarrassment as we'd be walking in town and suddenly he would point and shout, 'Mummy look a telefu*cker!', I'm sure you can imagine my face and quite clearly putting him right, saying, 'you mean a helicopter son!'.
There is however one word that he says that I don't want him to ever change, in our house now and forever cucumbers are and always will be cumbumber........I love it haha!
Oh there is so many more where these came from, I could probably write a a short story on them but for the moment I will leave it here. I imagine that I will write a part 2 at somepoint!
So come on, tell me what crackers your little ones have said before?
