Only said once a year in our house (and for the first time this year):
“Today is the ONLY day of the year you are allowed to have chocolate BEFORE breakfast!!”
Seconds later Jai and Aidan find all the hidden eggs, including ‘the legendary golden egg‘. Jai’s words and we have no idea what he’s talking about.
Merry Chocolate Ea(as)t(er)ing everyone!
“I WANT MANGO. I WANT MANGO. I WANT MANGO. I WANT MANGO. I WANT MANGO.”
Aidan has an addiction.
Can you guess what is?
2yo Aidan: “I WANT BA NA NA!
Me: (Gets one) “Ok… here banana!”
Aidan: “No, not that one!”
Aidan: “I like NA NA!
Me: (Gets same one) “Ok… banana!”
Aidan: “Not that one!”
Sigh. An hour later
Aidan: “May I have banana!” Some tears.
Me: (Gets SAME one) “Ok… this banana?!”
Aidan: “Mmmmm… ok.” Peels himself, returns to smash toys into each other.
Being a Dad isn’t too hard.
Aidan wanted a chicken crimpie. Got him four.
With two shoved in his mouth, he muttered “Manku.”
Now finished eating, getting ready to shove another one in, “Yeaaah.” Then shoves the next two in.
Didn’t even stop to look at me.
He’s only two.
Today Jai found this half filled lolly bag. I made the mistake of leaving it in plain view at my office desk.
I found him with the contents in lines on top of his little dining table. I decided if he was daring, he could have them.
“Dude, they are pure sugar. Don’t eat them too fast.”
“Daddy …. adults shouldn’t eat these.” Oh, he’s had one already.
“Why not dude?”
“… because they are pure sugar.”
Yet he didn’t jump off the walls nor get hyperactive. Because we took him to a park to run around for thirty minutes! Whew.
My boys get mentioned on Twitter a lot, mostly in jest, occasionally in exasperation, yet mostly because of their hilarious antics.
Here are all their Xmas moments throughout December 2016:
Sigh. I am sure there will be more before NYE. Watch out for them on my twitter.
Oh dear, Jai needed to know the facts of life today.
Jai: “Mummy, honey is bee poo!” Totally random comment from left field, yet understandable in our house.
Mum: “No , if anything it is bee spew.”
Mum: “Seriously, would you rather eat poo or spew.”
Dad: “Please don’t…” But it was too late.
Jai: “I say it is BEE POO!”
There was further discussion, but he couldn’t be swayed. Thankfully he lost interest and his six-second attention span found a new topic. But I know my boy’s memory.
[5 minutes later]
Jai: “Daddy, I have some bee poo for you!”
Dad: “… this is why. Sigh.”
