Rohan is going around the house chanting “Yaiy for Handy Manny, yaiy for Handy Manny!” After minutes of going on like this, I got curious and asked “Why are you cheering Handy Manny, what’s he done?” Rohan looks at me like I’ve just asked the most idiotic question and replies “He won the tennis yesterday Mama!!” 😂😂

Playing ‘I spy’ with RoRo and it went like this:
Ro: I spy with my little eye something beginning with…… M
Guessed a few things but they were all wrong.
Me: Give me a clue RoRo
Ro: Ummmmm…..ok……it begins with S
My poor, confused son 😂😂😂😂

Giving RoRo a little lecture in the car about listening and being good, I decide to capitalise on the time of year hoping that will motivate him a little…
Me: And then Santa will ask you if you’ve been good so what will you say?
Ro: But I already tricked him?
Ro: When we we went Santa’s Grotto, I already tricked him… when he asked if I was a good boy I said yes and then he gave me a present *smiles ever so cheekily*
Help! I’m raising a little con artist!!!

It was French breakfast morning at nursery today and knowing how emotional my three year old gets when I come to the nursery for a special event and then have to leave for work I was prepping him in the car.
Me: So after French breakfast is over RoRo I’ll have to go back to work ok? Because if I don’t go back to work what happens?
I was expecting an answer from him along the lines of ‘my boss won’t be happy’ but instead I got a rather dramatic:
“We will all die!” 😱😂😱😂😱😂

Neil says to me as I’m doing his bedtime routine:
“Mama, I have to tell you something. It’s so surprising! You’ll not believe this but I promise you have to believe me! Today, you know what my friends and I saw at school?? DRY RAIN!!!”

Took Rohan for the first time to watch a full length feature movie at the cinema. As they showed the ads and trailers he kept asking me “Is this the movie?” and I kept saying “Not yet, this is an ad”. Eventually the movie started…. three quarters of the way into the movie he leans over to me, eyes wide open, and whispers ” Is this still the ad Mama?” 😂😂😂😂😂
