Recent conversations with Jack...

Household chores
Washing up. "Mummy, bubbles?" Me "Yep. I'm washing the dishes." Jack, "Dishes have bubblebath?? Why?"

Cooking: "Mummy! Careful! Hot hot hot! Get ouchie!", me "it's ok, Jack. Mummy will be careful", Jack "Noooo! Mummy get ouchie!"  Love him! But need to cook the sausages... don't fancy them raw.

Being very smart

Playing with toy money. Daddy is holding Tom. Jack grabs a handfull of plastic coins and sticks it to Tom's bottom "Change Tom's Bum!" (which for anyone who doesn't know is what we say when Tom needs a new nappy...)

Being not so smart

Jack (out of no where): "Why?" Me, "Why what?" Jack "Yes, Why?" me "Erm, why what? What do you want to know?" Jack "Why?" Me... quickly distract him with something - anything - else.

The human body


I walk into the room with make-up on: "Mummy pretty", strokes my hair "nice hair mummy". I love this!

While I'm bending over to change Tom's nappy: "Hee hee hee! Mummy big bum!" slaps my bottom "big bum, big mummy boobies" Not quite as enamoured.

While he's on the sofa with no pants on (potty training) "Mummy look, big winky!" followed by (when my mum is here) "Nana look, big winky!" Oh dear...... I say "put some pants on. No one wants to see your big winky." Jack says "I like big winky mummy" *sigh*

Visitors

The Safestyle UK salesman: Jack "Pizza man?" "Me "No daring. Sorry. " Jack, points to briefcase "Pizza in there?" Me "No, not pizza. Just papers." Jack "Just papers? Awwww..."

The survayor. Jack "Pizza pizza pizza!" Me. "No, it's still not the pizza man." Jack, reaching for tool bag. "Pizza in there mummy!" Me. *sigh* "No sweetie, it's his tools." to the survayor "We really don't have pizza that often... honest."

The Jehovah's Witness. Jack "Pizza! Come in pleeeeease! Pizza in there??" Me, "No Jack, that's his bible. Not a pizza." Jack pouts, but it still trying to paw at the Good Book to see if it has a thick cheesie crust. A moments thought. "Jack, would you like to MAKE a pizza?" Jack "YEAH!!!!!"

We really DON'T have pizza that often!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
