They were driving me nuts with constantly wanting my attention - have been very busy preparing for kindy fete, organising T-shirt order for next year ( needs to be done ASAP), new parent support work and everything else.

So - whilst dinner cooked I sat down and played.

We played shop - they had their little cash register out. So i gave them some scenarios to get them started. Dd1 - just wanted to buy ice cream ( oops wonder where she got that one from grin) Dd2 wanted to buy all sorts of things ranging from pictures to mummy milk for dd3.

Well - I do not think dd1 will have a successful future in retail - everytime we tried to buy something she would take money from the till and pay us!!! Laughing her head off as she paid us.

Dd2 - no real future either as everything I bought only cost $2.99!!!! again my kind of shop.

They had a blast and were just giggling all the time.

Dd2 then did round and round the garden on dd3's hand and was dancing and cracking the baby up.

Finally - dd1 made me laugh out loud - I told them for a treat if they ate nicely at dinner they could have some icecream. We have been doing a lot of 1st x then/next y.

So first - eat our dinner Next/then you can have a little bit of ice cream.

Well Miss5 ( dd1) saunters over and holds her index finger up to me - announces that 1st Ice cream, next dinner. Turns away and does not give me a chance to answer, sits up at the table and then nods at me as if to say - you got that.

I had to laugh - the look on her face was precious.

oh just remembered - this made me giggle. Dd2 just does not be quiet - 4000000 questions every day - after relatively non verbal dd1 it is such a change..... ( both good and bad).

Anyway I have learnt not to call people inappropriate things whilst driving. However I might say - Oh grandad or hoy love/mate etc.

Our conversation goes like this

Oh grandad
what did grandad do
he cut mummy up and was driving in a silly manner
why was he being silly and so on.

Well the other day coming out of the hospital car park - little diamond traffic island appears out of nowhere - I say SHIT! dd2 pipes up - what did shit do mummy? I tried so hard not to laugh.

okay so you had to be there grin

I hope you obeyed such a calmly given instruction and provided ice-cream first wink

nope mean old mum just laughed and asked her who the boss was - to which she replied daddy - and set about laughing her head off.

It is lovely to see her making little jokes and realising she is doing so.

They did get their icecream though.
