Ten (More) Things Silly Mummy Has Actually Said

Ten More Things

  1. ‘Don’t kiss the TV, please, The Toddler.’
  2. ‘That’s no way to react to being told you can’t help with poo.’
  3. (In a field) ‘Maybe we won’t point out every piece of grass, The Toddler.’
  4. ‘The Baby needs to tell her face that she likes banana, doesn’t she?’
  5. ‘This is Mummy’s dinner, and Mummy doesn’t want it poking.’
  6. (To The Toddler, who has noticed she can’t see her scribbles, after Silly Mummy fobbed her off with a toy syringe instead of a pen) ‘Well, it’s invisible writing because it’s a special syringe pen. It’s not really for writing, usually – it only writes for magic people.’
  7. ‘I don’t know where the toy knife is, The Toddler: will the toy spoon do? No? It has to be the knife? Why do we need to knock all towers over with a toy knife?’
  8. ‘Are you chatting on the baby wipe? Who did you call on the baby wipe? Oh it’s Daddy, is it?’
  9. (To The Baby, who is trying to crawl away in order to avoid having her nappy changed) ‘Where do you think you’re going with your stinky bum, Great Escape? Are you making a break for it? Will you & your stinky bum be in Switzerland by dinner time?’
  10. ‘You can’t drink raisins with a straw.’

      Thank you! Yes, you just find yourself talking away about anything that comes to mind when you’re with little ones, don’t you? You come out with something & then just go with it, and next thing you know you’re thinking ‘why am I making a Great Escape reference to a baby??’ Glad it made you smile! Thanks for hosting #bestandworst!

    • Silly Mummy says:

      It did occur to me that the person pretending a baby wipe was a phone was probably less crazy than the person discussing it with her! Thanks for reading!

    These made me laugh. We also have one here who wants to make a break for it when it’s nappy changing time. Wriggly, rolly poo bum all over the sofa, the little beggar. I remember when nappy changes were the worst. Thing. Ever. #bestandworst

    • Silly Mummy says:

      Yes, I do that – you just get in a habit of talking constantly, don’t you? Then you stop & think & realise you are basically narrating nonsense! Thanks for popping by!

    • Silly Mummy says:

      Yes, you do! I think it’s a case of ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ – let’s all talk utter nonsense! Thanks for reading!
