My three year old grabs my head in both hands and manhandles it into position to watch if I don't turn to look immediately - so I can't even get away with a noncommital "uh-huh, that's lovely, sweetie" while keeping my eyes glued to MN or the newspaper.
snap marthamoo - whatever my dd is doing she watches me while i'm meant to be watching her to see if i'm watching (!?!?!) and if i dont watch she shouts even louder "Mummy you didn't watch me - watch me!!!!!"
After a rainy weekend of throwing our newspapers on the floor and demanding we played with him I thought he had finally cracked it. Yesterday my ds came out of the room where he was playing with some friends and said. "Mummy, I'm playing on my own, come and see!" Hum, maybe not then.
