I took the kids to our closest park today. It has no play equipment but a nice big field where we can play chasey, run around with Milo, play soccer and in summer the pool opens. Leilah loves to ride her bike to the park and eat our morning snack there. It’s a great way to spend the morning!!
Today she was collecting dandelions and blowing the seeds everywhere – as you do. I asked her if she made a wish and she had. I quickly told her not to tell me what she wished for because it wouldn’t come true.
Her reply? “BUT MUMMY, I WISHED FOR GRANDMA” with a real sad look on her face…
On the upside though I am glad my kids have such a great relationship with my family despite living so far away!! The Skype calls every few days, the yearly visits to visit us, our lengthy trips home definitely are making it possible!
Today at dinner Leilah was talking non stop. Sometimes I swear I wish kids came with an ‘off’ button XD Half the time she is pretending that she is Peppa Pig, Kai is George Pig and I am Mummy Pig – gotta love that show!!! LOL
Anyway after Leilah had finished this mammoth conversation about something I can’t even remember now she pipes up with “Mummy, you and I are having a CONVERSATION!”. LOL
Yes honey we are. Aren’t we. Now can you be quiet please and eat your dinner?!?
Sometimes though I don’t know where she learns the words she comes out with. She’s got a quite decent vocabulary for somebody her age I think!
Kai is 15 months old and since 11 months old he has gradually been adding words to his vocabulary here and there. It’s feels so strange to have a speaking toddler when Leilah didn’t say her first word until 18 months old!!
What I think is hilarious is he says so many words but is yet to say mummy… yep, that’s right!! And funnier still is that he is such a mummy’s boy XD
Just for reference the words I have heard him say as of 15 months:
I am sure there are more but at the moment my mind is blank. If I remember more I will add them!
They are definitely still only words that mummy/daddy or Leilah will understand at the moment though!
Mummy: Doctor, I think I broke my leg today when I tripped on a toy in the play room.
Leilah: (touches my leg): It’s not broken, mummy. It has just run out of fuel!!!
I have decided to focus my blogging now on little stories that my kids tell me instead of what is happening in our daily lives.
I am pretty sure these won’t be of interest to anybody else but my family and myself but I want a record of all the cute and funny stories that kids come out with. When they are older I will then make this blog into a book. The memories I have of the little things in life will soon be forgotten no doubt but this way I will always have a record.
If you want to follow me and read along, I hope you enjoy 🙂
If not, I completely understand 🙂
