I have just seen and heard something that almost defies beleif!
I go out to visit people who want their children baptising at our church, this isn't cold caliing, it's a prearranged visit to go thru the service with the parents.
The couple that I have just visited had a three year old dd and a baby. The three year old demanded that the tv be on so that she could watch Mary Poppoins while I was talking, then she started shouting at her dad "turnitup, "turnitup*,"*turnitup, "turnitup," so he did, but not as loud as she wanted.
She then lay on the floor screaming at me "SHUTUP, SHUTUP**SHUTUP, SHUTUP" until her mum said to her
A friend of mine has her TV blaring for her child and it is imposible to talk, imposible.
Also if we go any where in the car the same child insists on blaring music from the stereo, so you cant hear your self think.
She whines "i cant hear it because you are talking" to which the mother replies "oh, sorry" then turns it up louder for her!
can't help but see the funny side of this one. Reminds me of an incident a couple of weeks ago when dh and I were waiting in the dr's reception for a mw appt. A very cute wee lad was playing on the floor and when his mum asked him a question he said "er?" to which mum replied "don't say Er? Say what?". Dh and I exchanged grins and had to try very hard not to laugh.
I'm with custardo - I want the bumper sticker on Donbean's post too! Haven't laughed so much for ages
Next time I'm findings things hard with my partner's daughter I'm going to think about that, I'm sure it'll make me smile - I just hope they doesn't ask me why I'm smiling, don't think they'd find it funny somehow...
