Girls Talk – Some of Grace’s funee best bits!

As you may have noticed, I have been somewhat absent over the last couple of weeks with Grace and her funee’s.

I could tell you about the time we were making homemade lemonade last week and Grace told me to make sure I squeezed the lemons really hard to get every last bit of the orange juice out(!) OR I could tell you about how her latest craze is to play X-Men and the character she chose over the weekend was ‘Shadow Cat’ who was basically a cat which cuddled which Grace told us is ‘a bit useless in the super power department really’!

Instead, I am bringing back some of the funee moments from the first few posts I wrote about Grace at the beginning of my blog last September.

My first funee was published on October 16th 2012 and included the following:

When she was much younger, Grace had 3 imaginary friends by the name of Diblin (no, I don’t know where it came from!), Bertie and Violet and recently they have made a reappearance.  Grace started to discuss with me the fact that Violet was now much bigger, 13 in fact and therefore she had moved schools and was going to ‘Anniversary’!

Not sure what she meant by this, I decided to probe her a bit further. I said ‘Grace, what do you mean?’ and she responded ‘You know Mummy, a bigger school, where much older children go’. I then questioned her and named the local senior school, she retorted ‘No Mummy, its like where Ross went and got a degree!’

Turns out that ‘Anniversary’ was, in fact, University!

This next funee was taken from my post on November 13th 2012:

This morning we were chatting on the way to school, and we were discussing the possibility of me having another baby. Grace decided that they will be a nuisance because babies cry. I told her that she will be a big sister and help look after them. She said ‘That means I will have to be a teenager but at least I get to have bubble gum!’. Then we discussed a boy in her class whom, she told me, wasn’t being very nice. ‘He won’t get very far in life Mummy’ she told me ‘he will end up dead just like Malfoy’!

Finally the most embarrassing moment this week was when she brought back a bouncy Mr Happy Car Air Freshener and decided to stick it on the back seat next to her.  ‘Mummy’ she said ‘I’ve put this here so that if anyone farts then it won’t smell so bad!

Then, on November 27th, there were these gems:

This morning, as we were saying goodbye to Ross to go off on the school run, she offered him one of her pens to use for the day. Ross thanked her and put it in his mouth. ‘No!’ she shouted at him. Ross subsequently took it out of his mouth, and knowing she would protest again, he stuck it up his nose! (yes, my life with these two is always interesting!). Grace responded ‘No, stop it! And you had better not put it up your bum either!’ Hmmm….

Then, on the way to school in the car, Grace, who was by now on form, said to me ‘Mum, it would be very sad if our Queen died right now…in a car accident…no, actually, it would be a carriage accident as she is so posh!’

Then, on 4th December she provided us with one of the funniest pieces of writing I think I have ever seen from a child – it was obviously written in all innocence:

I would like to share with you some writing Grace did last week about the story of Mary going to Bethlehem because she was having a baby. I wonder if you can make out the first two words of the second to last sentence?! Makes you wonder about the Virgin Mary!

Finally, I would like to share with you ‘that’ video – the interview where Grace gives away the ending to a book so if you haven’t read Gangsta Granny then look away now!

This week, not only I am linking up with Actually Mummy, I am also responding to The Olivers Madhouse who has kindly tagged me in in the Cycle Addict’s ‘Comedy Cycle Tots Competition’.

I would like to tag ‘The Wicked World of Lucas’ and ‘The Beezley Buzz‘ to take part with their funee kids 🙂

    Adorable! I love the way they get words muddled up sometimes – they can really result in hilarity! Anniversary for university is a good one though! Glad didn’t push her too far with his pen antics!

    Girls always come up with the cutest things like that. They are much more introspective that way! Still waiting for my little one to start mouthing some gems!

    Lovely post – I love hearing cute kids stuff but have to confess I couldn’t make out much of the NAtivity story – can we have a translation?

    Oh, I do love Grace’s funees – they always make me giggle – clever girl! University/anniversary made me chuckle – and I think the air freshener idea would be great for my boys…!
