Boo has been a crack up lately and here are a few snippets….. remembering that this kid had ‘no functional language’ 4 years ago.
In the car, I am singing along with a Pink CD. The song is ‘Nobody Knows’
Boo, turning down the music: ‘Mum stop being so morbid, sing something with a little BOUNCE in it, will ya?’
While having a haircut after school:
‘MAKEUP!!!!’ ……. like in the movies…
he wanted the brush to brush away the hair from his face.
This morning when I threw his school clothes at him:
‘What do you expect me to do with THIS?’
Caught by his teacher lining up 4 girls against a wall so he can stare at their legs:
‘I wasn’t doing annnyyyy thing! I was looking at their, their SOCKS!’
Thankfully the girls had no idea what he was up to. My Boo has an obsession with legs, mammal legs. People, dogs, horses…..
Moo was looking for her pillow. She searched the house. Finally she found it.
In the bathtub.
Boo had placed her pillow, a bag of toys, 4 towels, a chair, a computer game, a sandwich and a pair of pants in there.
What was he up to????? I don’t know, and neither does he.
Barely audible squeal from the hallway.
Terrified voice stage whispering ‘Daaaaadddyyyy!!!! Help me! Help ME!!! There is a scorpion!!! A SCORPION!!! Daaaaaadddyyyyyyy!’
And here is the terrifying creature.
Moo took the photo. The line is the grout of the tiles. The ‘scorpion’ was an earwig. I fell about laughing while he cowered in the corner screaming ‘Stop it Mummy! It’s not fuuuunnnneeeee!”
Boo now knows the word for earwig…..
Watching the TV. John Howard is on. Boo looks at the televison.
Hmm, me wonders if the child is psychic!
‘Boo are we going to win the lotto?’
‘Don’t be silly Mummy!’
That freakin’ Macca’s ad is driving us all insane.
The chick on the radio was singing it too for-Christ-sakes….. AND not getting paid for it.
It is ingrained in our psyche.
So tonight we are having Maccas. Cause I can’t get that stupid jingle outta my head.
Boo decided what I was having, a cheeseburger with BACON.
Then he turned to me and said
‘You want single, double, quadruple or quintuple bacon on your burger?’
Can I have a side order of trip-to-the-hospital-to-clean-out-my-arteries with that?
