Everyday is a birthday when there's cake

Each time we eat a piece of leftover birthday cake I've been demaning a candle be put on it.

And lit.

And then blown out. By me.

Yep, that's just the way I've been rolling lately...

While mum was cooking tea tonight I announced, "wee mummy, ok?"

Then I wandered off towards the loo.

Mum could hear all the right sounds, my little toilet chair being set up, and a flush.

I came back to the kitchen, sans pants, and handed mum my nappy.

"Shower mummy, ok?"

I wandered off towards the bathroom.

Mum decided it was time to follow me, but I can be pretty quick when I need to be.

When she got to the bathroom I was stark naked in the shower with shampoo poured over my head.


Well, at least I was saving water by having a 'dry' shower!

Sitting on my toilet seat today, the only thing that came from my butt was a big loud noise.

After a slight pause I said to mum, "No, it's stuck"

On quoting dogs from ute ads

Remember a popular ad for a Toyota ute a few years back? I don't, because I'm only little. But I somehow* learned the famous word in the ad and used it in perfect context when mum wouldn't let me have a tub of yoghurt this afternoon.

There were muffled guffaws and serious looks flashed across the room from the grown ups.

*Both mum and dad are pointing at each other!

Big screen stormtroopers

We went to Andy and Wndy's place for tea.

I was allowed to bring my entire plastic Star Wars cast to show them.

They were impressed.

Then it was time for them to impress me.

They have a really big telly. They also had some episodes of a Star Wars cartoon cued up for me.

It was very good.

Days of raspberry yoghurt and stormtroopers

Today my attention was split between 'pink yogg' and 'tootoo-poppers'.

Not a very long time ago in a galaxy right here

I got new toys today!

You see, my fondness (some say obsession) with Stormtroopers inspired mum to get me one at the shop today. We were in Myer and happened to wlak past the toy section, and I happened to see some 'Tutu-poppers' on the shelf. I was very excited when mum said 'why not'.

She texted dad, and he wanted to know if it was from the original trilogy or the new trilogy. She said 'original'. It was actually 'new'.

When dad got home and discovered the Storm Trooper was actually a Clone Trooper, he said it was time to visit his toy cupboard and get some 'real' Star Wars toys. So I scored a whole big pack of figures from the original trilogy. 2 stormtroopers, Chewbacca, Luke and Han Solo.

We played after tea. We both had fun.

I was mucking around in mum and dad's room when I decided to crawl under their bed.

"Hiding!" I declared.

After a few seconds it was time to stop hiding, so I had to come up with an exit strategy.

I did not decide to lower my head and back out the way I came in. Oh no, I charged ahead towards the light coming from the end of the bed. The little thin bit of light.


That was the sound of my head on the bed base.

But it's ok. I apologised. To myself.

"Sorry, No-no" I said.

And everybody laughed.

Scar stories

The annual rose show was on today and mum and I went along to see dad (who had won Best Novice).

Quite a few of the rose people came up to say hello to me.

My response to each 'hello' was to pull my shorts and show the person my knee.

The one with a little scab on it.

The one I got from my bike crash at Sam's house.

It's a pretty small scratch.

But it's mine, and I show it to as many people as I meet.

P.S. A few of them told me they'd already seen it when I showed them the day before. When dad and I were helping to set up the rose show. But they were still impressed.

Awake! Sick people

When I see someone with their eyes shut, I like to creep up to them and shout 'awake!'

It's hilarious.

I usually do it at home to mum or dad, but today decided to take my show on the road.

To the doctor's waiting room.

Oh, yes....I went there.

P.S. We are all a bit sick at Long Lived Rock. But none of us has swine flu.

Heads up

Mum gave dad two pieces of advice while leaving the house this morning.

"He's really adept at undoing screwcaps. So be careful where you leave the bottle of juice"


"He's quite partial to his medicine, so be careful where you leave his, and our, medicine!"

Friendly shopper

We went shopping a couple of times today.

In the morning we went hunting for a new TV. Well, browsing. There were lots of TVs in the shop, showing lots of different things, and dad had to make sure I was looking at ones showing appropriate content for two year olds. Some of the really big ones were showing previews for big scary action movies, so I got turned around to look at the ones on the other wall. They were showing an American baseball game. Dad said that even though baseball is a silly game, it was much better for me to see that than scary dudes shooting guns.

We didn't buy a TV, but we did buy some milk and bread at the supermarket this afternoon. I tried to make as many friends as I could by saying 'hello' to everyone I saw. I also kept people laughing by my checkout antics, which include insisting on putting all the items on the little conveyor belt.

Going solo

It may have been inspired by a 'Time Out', but I managed to put myself to bed all on my own!

I was being a bit naughty after lunch, and dad sent me to my room for a bit of 'time out'. It usually causes a few tears, but today the tears disappered quickly and dad found me lying on the floor reading a book after my 5 minutes was up.

I was having such a good time that he decided to leave me.

A few minutes later he checked on me to find me tucked up in bed under the sheets!

I grinned at him.

He asked if I wanted some juice or milk, but I shook my head.

He came back 5 minutes later and I was sound asleep.

Two dinosaurs

Putting on our shoes getting ready to go out and mum turned on the TV for a quick minute.

There were two dinosaurs; a big one and a little one.

I pointed at the big one and announced to mum, "Dis a daddy".

Then I pointed to the little one and said, "Dis a No-No".
