What My Kid Says These Days – Part 3

IMG_5652‘What would you like for breakfast, sweetheart?’

‘Cookie!’

‘Too much sugar is not good for you, darling.’

‘One cookie!’

‘No. Would you like an egg?’

‘Last cookie!’

‘No.’

‘Two cookies!’

‘No.’

‘Three cookies!’

 *

We’ve been playing hide and seek lately. He takes my hand and leads me to a corner.

‘Mummy, hide here!’

Then he runs off to another room and starts counting.

If he doesn’t find me in the allocated corner, the surprised look on his face is truly priceless. My attempts to explain that that’s the point of hide-and-seek have not proven successful.

When it’s his turn to hide, I close my eyes and count. He goes next door and hides. Usually by the count of five, he runs back to where he left me screaming ‘I’m here! I’m here!’

 *

‘Mum-dad-mummy’ or ‘dad-mum-daddy’ is usually how he addresses us these days. I think occasionally we morph into one being in his eyes.

 *

‘I like you very much, mummy.’

‘I like you very much, sweetheart.’

‘You are gorgeous, mummy.’

Well, how can one argue with that?

Hope this post put a smile on your face. Have a great week!

  1. Perfect. I lost my enthusiasm for hide and seek with small children when my son, aged three and I hid in a wardrobe. He was so excited he peed in my lap. I didn’t realise until we were found! Love the cookie negotiation.

      • Oh, I’m not sure how interested he’ll be but I started it for myself. I was so worried I’d forget these precious magical moments so I started to write them down for myself – I was seriously trying to remember everything that happened every day in his young life! This was my solution. I do wish we had better quality videos, though have a few grainy ones from the first digital cameras about ten years ago. Lovely idea to post a blog – I’ll love reading these…ahh…

      • Ah, how sweet, Annika. Thank you for your kind words about the post. I think there is a certain age when we become curious about our childhood. One day those notes of yours will become his greatest treasure.

  2. Love it! Definitely can’t argue with any of it. Have you read “Where’s Spot?” the original one from Eric Hill. I seem to recall Lion having some trouble hiding too. Gorgeous might be just about the right age to enjoy it. Also “Guess how much I love you” by Sam McBratney might give you some more phrases for sharing, not that you need any, but your discussion reminded me of it. 🙂

    • Thanks, Norah, we love Spot’s books, though I haven’t got the one where they are playing hide and seek. May have to look it up to teach him the game properly 🙂 And many thanks for suggesting ‘Guess how much I love you.’ Sounds great! Keep the suggestions coming – I love it! 😀

  3. Aw so sweet. I love how you say that for him you are one person. My daughter likes calling us mapapa and pamama or mama-papa and papa-mama… It gets really funny when I ask her who she is then she says mama papa I guess she has understood that she is a mix of both of us. 🙂
