Funny Monday – Competitive Dad

Gavin and hubby were in Choo Choo Train at The Gardens, Midvalley one evening, checking out the wooden Thomas and Friends merchandise when they met another Thomas fan and his Dad. While looking at the models of wooden trains, the boy picked up a black tender engine and asked his father, “Daddy, who is numberContinue reading “Funny Monday – Competitive Dad”

Funny Wednesday – What You Shouldn’t Ask in a Pet Shop

My SIL2 and Gavin were in a petshop looking at fish and other marine creatures.  My SIL2 saw a label for some sort of scallop and wondered if it was anything like the edible ones. Then Gavin asked, in a rather loud and penetrating voice, “Can we eat it?” Every head in the vicinity mustContinue reading “Funny Wednesday – What You Shouldn’t Ask in a Pet Shop”

Funny Friday: Things Only a Mum Can Teach

When you’re a mother, humour is such an essential requirement.  Here is something one of my Mum-friends sent me which I thought was a great “pick-me-up” for a Funny Friday. My Mother taught me about ANTICIPATION: “Just wait until your father gets home.” My Mother taught me about RECEIVING: “You are going to get itContinue reading “Funny Friday: Things Only a Mum Can Teach”

Amusing Conversations with a Toddler

When I speak to Gavin, I rarely use baby words or made up words.  Even if he created a word for a specific object, I generally use the correct word for that object in reply.  So when it came to teaching Gavin about his private parts, I decided to teach him the anatomically correct termContinue reading “Amusing Conversations with a Toddler”

Funny Friday: The Napkin Holder

Gavin was slightly over a year old when this happened… We were sitting at a restaurant in the club and Gavin was helping himself to the napkins in the napkin holder.  My FIL then said, “Gavin, stop playing with the napkins and put them back.” Gavin stopped mid-action and looked my FIL straight in theContinue reading “Funny Friday: The Napkin Holder”

Funny Friday: Cause and Effect

Gavin got a Thomas and Friends Big Big Loader for his birthday.  Although it is largely a fairly passive toy that requires him to watch Thomas, Jack and Cranky at work, he often tries to help them out by picking up the little balls of coal. Unfortunately, that also means he drops them.  One ofContinue reading “Funny Friday: Cause and Effect”
