Girls Talk – a Wot So Funee Post #funee

I don’t know about your kids, but Grace has started making up songs, making up dances….making up, well, anything really and we, the grown-ups are her audience. On Sunday at my Mum’s house she treated us to two ‘songs’ on the recorder entitled ‘Gentle Breeze’ and ‘Loose Cats'(!), both of which were very made up!

Later in this week’s funee I bring you a sound byte of a song she made up in the bath last night called ‘Little Butterfly’. But first, the stories!

As most of you know by now, the beginning of last week was my week from hell, which turned into my week from heaven!! Anyway, I was driving home from school with Grace in the back and I commented that everyone seemed to be driving like idiots. Grace’s comment to me was ‘It’s that time of year where everything is iffy, people go mad and start crashing’! Oh, OK then!!

During bathtime one evening last week, I managed to get water in Grace’s ears when washing her hair and she shouted at me ‘Mum! You’ve got water in my ears, now there is going to be a river in my brain!’ Then, later on when I asked her what Ross had asked her to do, once she had confirmed what he said, she added ‘If he said something different then I won’t be pleased with you, it’s your fault if my ears don’t work anymore’!

The next evening Grace tricked Ross into getting her school bag for her by telling him she would give him chocolate. He came down to get it and then went back and asked for his reward. I then heard from upstairs ‘There is none, but you can go and get some of your own wine!’ Then added ‘I’m going to tell my Mum something, I’ll be quick as a swift!’

On Saturday I told Grace that I was very pleased with how much she had been helping me. ‘That’s OK Mum, when childs start to get bigger, they can do more favourite things for you!’

Mothers Day was superb. Grace and Ross brought me breakfast in bed together with a new mug which had lovely photos of Grace all over it and some beautiful flowers. I said to Grace ‘Thank you so much, I am such a lucky Mum’. ‘Yes, you are’, came the reply from Grace ‘and don’t you forget it!’

Once we had gone downstairs, Grace told me that she had a hole in her little toe. I had a look at it and joked with her ‘oh dear, there is a tiny hole, I’ll get my needle and thread and sew it up’. ‘Mum!’ she said sternly ‘you are NOT a well-trained doctor!’

Finally, here’s that sound byte I promised you…entitled ‘Little Butterfly’…..just click on the link below:

    Lovely 🙂
    I loved making up songs when I was younger and Madam does the same, the performances are erratic but I enjoy her style.
    We could have the future in songwriting!!

    She does have a really cute voice! But did I hear right that the last line of that song was something about killing someone… lol x Anyway as I played it my toddler stopped what she was doing and started swaying from side to side so clearly it was the most awesome song EVER. :)) x

    Firstly, a huge congratulations on being MADs finalist, it’s so well deserved!!

    I chuckled at the river in the ear. I may have, from time to time tilted my head and whacked my ear a bit to get rivers out of my brain 🙂

    Bless her! She’s always very funny. Reminds me a lot of my little girl, who has also recently started playing recorder (unfortunately!).

      Thanks Sarah! Recorders, I believe, are pollution to the ear drums! 😉
