Isn’t there a phrase? That you don’t like what you hear if you listen to the conversation of other people? Well, I do like what I’m hearing right now.
Daddy and E are doing the words “buzz” and “fuss” and “jass” instead of “jazz”. E is not happy with Daddy helping him with his spellings.
W is shouting “I’ve finished” every 30 seconds. And behold, he has finished each task that needs doing. But it’s the tone, “Dadddeeeeeee, I am telling you that I have finished. Again. I have finished again, can you hear me Dadeeeeeeeee?”
I can’t explain this very well. I think I should have done some audio with audio boo. But it’s funny. E is chanting “This is boring, this is boring, boring smoring, snoring, boring…” It is very funny. W is now asking “Please can we have the play doh out?”, followed by lots of “Why not…?” and “Daddy you are boring” lines. He’s four and only mimicking E, but it’s amazing to listen to.
In other news, today, I have done the school run this morning, and it’s caused me a lot of stress. If I did it every day, there’d be a regimented conveyor belt in operation to make it easier for me. Not for the boys. For me. Wendy Howell is right, there’s no joy in the school run in a morning. Things I need to do:
- My work. That stuff that brings in the monies to pay for ice cream and toys. According to W, I work on my computer and then I get money given to me to buy ice cream and toys. It is *not* for buying clothes, as W told Nanna the other week – she said “I’ve got you a present” and W said “So long as it’s not more clothes Nanna. We neeeeeeed toys”. I have no idea where he gets his direct, factual approach from.
- To research seals with E, because we bought a rubber for £1.25 yesterday in the shape of a seal. This is obviously the priority. My earning money will have to wait.
