Children do the funniest things......especially when you are not expecting it!

There are times when I wish I had kept a diary of all the funny things my children have said or done. A diary that when you are having a bad day, you can pick up and read. But I haven't....but maybe I should start now!

One of my favourite moments which I can visually show you on here happened right at the end of the summer term. The picture is on my phone and I look at it when I am feeling cross or angry with the children - it always makes me smile (soppy confession).

Picture this and imagine (or empathise if you have ever been in a similar situation) ... very late for school and nursery = stressed out Mummy!

We were running late for the School and Nursery run and I was (I admit) a little stressed and tetchy. Harry was going on a Nursery School trip and one of the 'must haves' was a sun hat. We were in the car and I had forgotten said sun hat. Stupidly I asked him which one he wanted me to run inside and get. Harry being Harry couldn't decide. I ran inside and grabbed all his hats - plonked them on his knee and grumpily said 'You have between home and school to pick a hat'.

When I got to school and turned round, I was met with this. My frustrations disappeared immediately, giggles and smiles replaced my frowns. My funny little boy. He said he could pick so had decided to wear them all!

I know that I am not the only one with a little one who either does or says something funny. Family Fever and My Monkeys Don't Sit Still spring to mind as they have funny little ones too (meant in the nicest possible way of course!)

This is my entry into the Cycle Tots competition.

  2. Nice Article, So when you visit Best Pre Primary Schools
    look to see if teachers smile and are generally encouraging of children. Look to see how the teachers interact with the other children in the classroom and if there seem to be strong connections between them. Also talk to parents at the school about their experience.


I'd love to hear what you think about this post!! Thank you for taking the time to comment!
