frieda-isms

Emerging from the bathroom carrying our wooden (very expensive for a bathmat) bathmat, rolled up in her arms. This item is not a toy. Neither is it for rolling.
'Mummy, could you help me hoist this onto my back?'
A just-4 yr old with a vocab like that can have anything in my book.

Overheard at her birthday party as some bigger boys ran past a tottering Stella:
'Hey! Watch out for my little sister, SHE'S NOT VERY STABLE!'
Let's hope she never has occasion to say that again.

My elderly Afrikaans mother-in-law: 'Ek het 'n wortel koek gebak [pronounced 'buck']*'.
Frieda, aghast, 'Mum! Did Ouma say fuck?'
Be merciful Lord, and take me now.

What's that you say, soon there'll be two of them talking? I don't know if I can handle the funny.

*I baked a carrot cake.

Huff huff...loving it! My 4 year old today, "At nursery today we sat in Circle Time...quietly on our bottoms and I sang a holo...and the holo that I sang was Twinkle Twinkle. A holo is when you sing on your own."

LOVE HIM! x

Jed dropped an F-bomb the other night when he stubbed a toe and Sam immediately repeated. I couldn't help but laugh.

Ah yes. Kids are darn funny. I remember the time our family hit a moose with the family vehicle. Everyone was fine but afterwards, as the driver, I asked my family what I said to warn them about what was about to happen. My 7 year old daughter replied that I simply said Moose but Mommy yelled FUCK three times.
