Tuesday Tidbits 5

Friend: Do you have an air conditioner at your kindergarten?
DD: Nooooooo, we don't have baths at kindergarten.

DD (listening to her nursery rhymes cd): Mummy! Mummy! They're saying my name!
Nursery Rhymes CD: The farmer's in his den, ee-aye-adeeo the farmer's in his den.
DD: See!? Did you hear it? (singing) Ee-aye-Adiele the farmer's in his den.

DD: Look, the shower is like a paddling pool. Can I paddle in it?
Me (cleaning the bathroom and a bit frazzled): No, just let me clean in here. Please.
DD: It's not only your home you know. It's both our homes.


  1. That very last comment told you didn't it? :D

    1. Yup, certainly did. I've actually been thinking about it a lot - from her perspective she's totally right. She doesn't know about paying the bills etc.

  2. I totally get that [h]'air conditioner.
    LOL LOL.

    They say the funniest things don't they.

    And yes, your house is her house MWWAaaaaah HA HAH AHA


    1. The more I think about it the more I love it that she said that about it being her home too - even though I'm losing my authority around here day by day.

    2. My parents (who can only be described as elderly) still tell me that their home is my home. I guess it's nice to know there's a place to go back to if this marriage/kids thing doesn't work out (and my 25th anniversary is next week, lol). But on the other hand, if their home is my home too, can I take it upon myself to clean up some of the 50 years of junk they've accumulated? It seems they never throw out anything, except for useful things like their original Mad Men-style clothing from the 1960s. (I went peeking for my mother's suddenly-stylish old suits and dresses last time I was in their, I mean my, home, and they're GONE).

    3. Don't talk about it - my mother kept all our old (less than brilliant) school reports and threw out hundreds of slides (transparencies?) which they preferred over photographs when we were young. Almost my whole childhood thrown away because they said the projector didn't work. FFS - I would have taken them into a photoshop and had them put on cd.

    4. My dad actually did convert his slides to digital, all 1200 of them, after my brother bought him a gadget to help. A LOT are from London in the 60s and 70s.

  3. Love the 'air conditioner'! They're getting that 'my home too' business younger and younger these days...
