The things they say…

Yesterday we were sitting down eating dinner, on the menu mashed sweet potato, broccoli and fish sticks - not my most imaginative effort I’ll admit. To encourage my wee adorables in their eating, I asked: “So, what is the most important part of the body?”
Thinking this would provide me with a clever segue to the importane of feeding that part of the body and helping it grow and be strong!
Oliver replied proudly, so excited with his answer: “The penis!”
You couldn’t make this shit up.
I put my arm around him and said: “Many men would share your view Oliver”.

This morning, Steven began introducing the kids to some music other than Country (TGFT) - including David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust, random I know, I presume it was on the radio… On explaining that Bowie was English, Lola asked “Is he friends with Granny?”

If only Lola, if only…

Lola Turns 3 Years Old

I can’t believe our little girl has turned 3. Coming in at a healthy 32 pounds and 36.5 inches, she is growing every day and is crazy smart.

We celebrated her birthday with a fantastic party - you can see the photos here on Flickr. A lot of folks, a lot of kids, with our core group of friends who stayed on at the end whilst the kids settled down to a movie - perfect.

Here are some of Lolie’s gems:

besert - dessert
comfyball - comfortable
psghetti - spaghetti

She is also writing L for Lola, O for Oliver and T for turtle.

The list goes on! I love you my girl. You really are a girl of passion, joy and wit.
The world will be your playground.

I love you

This week Lola started saying “I Love you” this kind of comes out “Aye lough you” but we know what she means. Other words include: no, please (peas) thank you (takeoo) shoes, pasta, no more, dog, mama, papa, nanny, granny (gannee), meme, socks, grandpops (ganpos) oliver (owah), janeh (janet next door) mine, mater (from the movie cars), truck (chuck) and many many more.

I love you though, that right there’s a milestone. Oliver is copying - not to be outdone. He takes great pride in correcting Lola on her pronunciation, which he finds infuriating.

A typical conversation: “Chuck!” says Lola. “It’s not CHUCK its TRUCK!” shouts Oliver. Lola waits a beat then looks at her brother and shouts back “Chuck!” grinning from ear to ear. “It’s NOT CHUCK, TRUCK!” yells Oliver. And so it goes. She is delighted by how furious this makes him. And Oliver, poor lad, falls for it every single time.
