This week Grace has been full of one-liners that have kept Ross and I both on our toes and, of course, laughing. So what I shall do is give you the scenario and then what was said by our little madam.
Ross decided to go and find his mallet in a bid to finally make her moshi monster poster STAY on the wall – Grace: ‘Mallet? Is that a grown-up word for hammer?’
After putting up the said poster, as usual Ross and Grace were joking around about how they were going to hurt each other badly. Ross told Grace that he would sit on her in her sleep. Grace: ‘If you do that to me, I will be dead when I wake up’!
Out in the snow on Saturday, we started to build a snowman (we all got absolutely frozen and decided to go in before completion!). Grace: ‘We definitely need to find arms for sticks’!
On Sunday, Grace and I decided to have egg and bacon for lunch. I cooked us both a fried egg and, knowing how Grace loves to break the yolk herself, I chose the one I broke the yolk for in the pan. I explained this to her. Grace: ‘Never mind Mummy, it’s just an egg, it’ll live’!
On Sunday evening during Grace and Ross’ sparring, Grace was taunting Ross. She called him a ‘Howard’ – of course, she meant ‘Coward’
Yesterday morning I told Grace that Ross told me on email that everything was ‘spiffy’. Grace: ‘How dumb is that? Why is everything ‘stiffy”!
Finally it was my turn for a funny last night – much to Ross and Grace’s amusement. We were working through our new Money Smarter book and I decided to discuss the ‘workshits’!! Complete slip of the tongue. Although I laughed even harder when on the ‘workshit’ Grace decided that to be a Policeman you needed to learn not be naughty otherwise you would be a criminal yourself!
