The Things They Say; The Things They Do

Midget :: MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM! COME AND LOOOOOOOOOOOOK WHAT IIIIIIIIIIII DID

Me :: *oh for the love of God, what now*... OK coming.... what have you done, then?

Midget :: I wrote my NAME!!!

Me :: Wow, you're so smart! How did you know how to write your name?

Midget :: I just KNOW.

Me :: OK, so let me see...

Midget :: THERE! SEE?? (spells out name) *beams with pride*

Me :: Oh. Darling. Well done. You are so clever and mummy is soooooo proud.

Midget gives a satisfied sigh and goes off to play with the Scaletrix.

I look at his name written on the coffee table, sigh and make a mental note to dust more often.

  2. It's embarrassing when your children think dust is a perfectly normal writing material....

  4. LOL! One of my children's friends was visiting and noticed the dust, and asked me why it was there! I bumbled something about and not having time, and hoped it didn't get reported back to the child's mother..

  5. I'm very choosy about who I let in to my inner sanctum - there are a handful of sisters I let into my house at any time because I know they dotn judge. Anyone else has to give me two days' warning so I can clean ;-)
