What Thea did next: blasters, hair flicks and tantrums
Thea has been making us laugh/pull our hair out for the past few weeks. Here are some of the things she’s been getting up to.
Each night, when we tuck her up in bed, she says, “Sweet dreams mummy, I love you!” which makes it slightly less annoying when we have to go back up stairs five minutes later to give her a drink/another cuddle. And same again five minutes later. She also said, “I don’t want to go to sleep. I just want to play with you.” In the morning, she now says, “Good morning mummy.” Too cute.
Last week, she hurt her arm a bit, and was nagging me for a “blaster” so I gave her a novelty plaster. I turned round and she’d put it over her own mouth!
She calls hair clips “hair flicks” which makes us think of the character in the 90s sitcom “Allo Allo”, whilst Ava still calls them “hair plicks.”
Thea’s also taken to saying “Oh for heaven’s lake!” when something goes wrong, which really cracks me up. She also said, “Hold your sauces?” to me, and giggled like a maniac, after I told her to “Hold your horses.”
Not so funny was the black pen she put on our lampshade.
This came after she drew on the wall with blue crayon last week.
She’s started throwing tantrums if we don’t let her wear what she wants (summer dresses are her favourite, even if it’s chucking it down and freezing.) If we are just staying in the house we let her choose, but sometimes she needs to wear something more practical, which is when this happens:
She agreed to wear the spotty skirt and long sleeved t-shirt. But insisted on wearing the back to front, inside out dress over it. I let her in the end. I was quite impressed she managed to get it on all by herself, as it’s quite tight!We got a few funny looks in Morrisons, but she was happy. The extra dress also acted as a kind of apron for the yoghurt she spilled down her front too. Unexpected bonus.
