…road safety:

“Don’t run into the road Mummy! The cross lady came upstairs and told me, but not you, and she said you don’t go in the road”

(Ed’s translation: the crossing lady visited nursery!)

…fairy tales:

“Elma, just sit down here. Are you afraid of the big bad wolf, yes or no?”

(the answer was unreported!)

…other important questions:

“Elma, do you like Mummy? or not?”
(“Or not!” was the encouraging reply!)

“Pip! Why have you spit up on our Mummy?!”

…the English classics – spotting Mary Bennet in her BabyLit version of Pride and Prejudice:

“Mummy! That’s Mary! That Mary is with Baby Jesus in the story about Baby Jesus!”

(cue a discussion about how Mary Bennet whilst seemingly very pious was (a) fictional and (b) not the mother of baby Jesus)

the things that go bump:

“Mummy! Some things keep falling on my head!”
“What things” (looking around for anything that could possibly just have landed on her)
“Some things that are near me.”
“Like what lovely?”
“Um .. the wall.”

… how to make your mother feel really good about herself:

“Mummy! Your tummy is still big! That means there’s room for another baby in it! Maybe a sister?!”

…every occasion that I pick up the phone to H:

“I just really need to say something to Daddy!”

…being handed the phone:

“Well Daddy….”

the all important choice of snack:

“Mummy I want a poppadom please?”
“We don’t have any poppadom’s love.”
“Yes we do, a hopadom!”
“A what?”
“A hopknot?”
“Do you mean a hobnob?”
“Yes!”
