I have not linked up for the funee for the last two weeks due to the amount of stuff going on BUT that is not to say that Grace hasn’t been coming out with her gems. I have done my best to save them up where I can but a majority of what I am sharing with you today has been as a result of our holiday.
Whilst travelling to Dover the evening before we were due to board the ferry, Grace, Ross and I were discussing what we would like to do when we were in France. Grace and Ross decided the swimming pool was for them. I discussed the possibility of may be going out to different places to experience some of what France’s culture had to offer. We then talked about which days we were going to do what. Grace pipes up ‘Let’s start with Mum’s boring stuff and get it out of the way’. Charming!
Upon arriving in Calais and getting onto the motorway, there were a number of telephone pylons. ‘Look!’ shouts Grace ‘there’s the Eiffel Tower!’
Ross and Grace have a habit of continuously sparring with each other. One of Grace’s funnier comments to Ross on holiday was ‘Ross, you are a bloody nuisance and if I could put a bomb in someone’s head it would be yours!’
Grace and I were walking off to the playground whilst Ross did some work. I got the usual prolonged questioning ‘Muuum?’ ‘Yes Grace?’ I responded. ‘I wonder how many people there are in the world?’ ‘I don’t know’ I replied. ‘I bet the Queen of England knows’ said Grace, ‘she knows everything, she even knows France’.
One of the days Ross, Grace and I took a trip to the local Super U to stock up on supplies. We got food, wine, cheese, bread, wine…. you know, the essentials. As Ross and I started to unpack, Grace was sitting at the dining table. ‘You do realise,’ she said ‘that you have not bought any drink for me. It’s OK for you two, you can drink wine AND you can drink the drinks I have BUT I can’t drink your wine’. Whoops, parenting fail!
When we did finally get round to buying her a drink she could have, she had to have something we found utterly hilarious to pronounce (as seen in my Silent Sunday this last weekend!)
Finally, last night sitting round our dinner table (yay, we can finally sit round a table to eat!), Grace, Ross and I were looking at a baby photo of her we have on the shelf. ‘I did have rather a lot of dog fat didn’t I?!’ Through the laughter, we had to explain to Grace that she actually meant Puppy fat!
