Today’s blogtober prompt is Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Every now and then I do posts about the funny things my girls have said or done. I do them because they are great reminders for me and they do feel pretty indulgent. But I love my blog space to be full of memories and the funnier the better.
Here are a couple of new ones (They seem to be getting less now that they are older) and some of my favourites.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
I went into the girls bedroom and it was a mess. Star always dresses in the bathroom, but Boo gets dressed in the bedroom and always leaves her dirty clothes there. The room was full of dirty clothes so I came downstairs and told Boo to go up and bring all her clothes down and put them in the washing basket.
Boo, being Boo, took me completely literally and brought down ALL of her clothes for the washing basket. Yes, all the dirty ones from the floor and the clean ones from her cupboard!!
Some of My Favourite Funnies
Quite topical at the moment, this is the time Boo who was just in Reception class, had been learning about November 5th and Remembrance Day. This is what she told me:
“Guy Fawkes tried to deaded the king by blewing him up, but he blew himself up instead, now we have to wear a Poppet to remember him”
We still tease her about this.
There was another time when Boo asked if French Fries were Italian food! After explaining that French people lived in France not Italy I then had to explain that French Fries are American. Life can be confusing sometimes.
We still tease poor Star about this even though she was four years old at the time. I was playing with her around Christmas time and she said she wanted to sing a Christmas song. So I asked her which song she wanted to sing thinking she might have come up with Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer or Jingle Bells. But she replied with ‘the one with the Turkey and Custard Cream.’ We never worked out what she meant but we have made our own song up about the Turkey and custard cream that we still sing to her every Christmas.
Recently on This Morning (UK Television program) a Birmingham based presenter was doing an item on Trick and Treating for Halloween, but she kept on saying Trickle Treating. The rest of the presenters were laughing at her but she really believed that it was Trickle Treating. I thought it was so funny because Boo has always called it Trickle Treating too. We are also from Birmingham. It must be the Birmingham accent.
Finally, I’ll leave you with a little story about Boo when she was just 3 years old. I had bought the girls a packet of sweets each at the shops and when we got home Star couldn’t find her packet. I asked Boo if she’d seen Star’s sweets and she replied innocently;
‘yes Mummy, I’ve seen them and now they are in my tummy.
At least she was honest 🙂
