5 things my 3-year-old has said that I never will (probably)

27 Nov

I am used to being tagged. As a chubby child I couldn’t run fast enough to get away. Tags these days are much more fun and less demeaning so thanks to Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum for tagging me in Helen at the The Crazy Kitchen’s meme. The idea is to come up with 5 things that your child says that you never will. In some ways a tricky one for me as my daughter and I are like peas in a pod; in other ways, very easy as she comes out with some real crackers. So here are mine (and inevitably they mainly involve bodily functions):

  1. If a monster comes in in the night, I’ll do a pop to scare it away.
  2. Have you got a ticket for the wee show?
  3. I’ve done four poos – a mummy, two babies and a dinosaur.
  4. Look mummy, your boobies are small.
  5. I’m not doing anything – just sitting here picking my nose.

So, now I’m ‘it’ – all huffy and puffy from chasing – and I’m tagging:

Dorky Mum

Rollercoaster Mum

SAHD and Proud

The iDad

The rules are simple: 5 things that your child has said that you may once have said but wouldn’t now in a month of Sundays. Then tag some victims. Finally, pop back to Helen’s original post and add yourself to her linky. On your marks …

    thanks for joining in. I love the four poo one! A dinosaur poo sounds painful !!
    I think all the posts seem to have poo and/or willies in !

      Slightly predictably! The word poo will never lose it’s ability to amuse.

    these made me laugh! Thanks for the tag – I’ll def be joining in but it may take a while – I’ll need to have a think! Oh and I used to be that chubby child too!

    Ha ha Loving the too babies and a dinosaur line!

    Queen Scamp often points at Papasaurus’s chest and says very matter of fact look you have got big boobies like mummy!

    This doesn’t go down well as you can imagine!!!

    Thanks for link of your blog and for being a sport with the tag. Blue cheese and poo custard – love it! I’ve signed the STC petition – tried to find a link to the campaign on their facebook site so I could share it but didn’t seem to be one.

    […] doing meme posts, but this one has been making me laugh a lot over the last few days. Helen over at Crumbs and Pegs has tagged me to do a list of things I’ve heard DorkySon say that I would never say myself. It […]
