Picture the scene…
It’s bedtime last night and Emmy and Harry have both had their baths.
Both are tired
Crying and quite frankly miserable. That’s early starts for you!
I grab their PJ’s, their milk and as a treat for them and as a break for me we head to my room to watch In The Night Garden.
Wrestling them into their PJ’s while stopping Emmy bouncing on my bed, finally they settle down to watch the DVD.
Harry then decides to keep launching himself off the side of the bed.
Emmy: “Harry don’t do that you will hit your bloody head”
Me: ” Emmy, you can’t say that. It’s not a nice word and we don’t use it. OK?”
Emmy: “But Mummy, you did”
Me: “No I didn’t darling”
Emmy: “You did Mummy”
Me: “When did I use that word?” (Puzzled that she has heard it somewhere)
Emmy: “You said Harry fell over and hit his bloody nose”
Me: “Emmy darling, I said Harry fell over and had a bleeding nose. He had a nosebleed!”
Do your children come out with some howlers?
