OUT OF THE MOUTH OF MY BABE


I’ve been declared “not all well in the head”.  By my son.  Of 3- almost- 4. ( clever child…..)

We were all ill last week with flu. I was asked repeatedly “What is wrong, Mamma? ” ( new favourite question)

And I’m sure I must have said ” Mamma can’t play now, Mamma is ill/has a sore throat/is coughing/is sick” quite a few times when he wanted attention. (poor kid. But a valuable lesson in empathy perhaps?  That’s what Mamma was thinking….. )

So much so that he decided his father is now “all that” and the playmate of obvious and only choice.

Said father cannot sit down for a minute without being called somewhere . “Looka here, Pappa! ” , “Play Pappa! “, “COME ON,  PAPPA! “.

And Pappa is T-I-R-E-D…. O-U-T……….

“Why don’t you play with Mamma for a while? ”

“Mamma’s head is wrong.”

THERE YOU HAVE IT.

IN A  NUTSHELL.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN “GOOD MORNING”?


Are you looking for a fight? Huh??? HUH??????

(Sorry, ignore that. Not fully awake yet. This post will be typed while semi-asleep. I will get a hold of myself shortly. Let me just finish the Nescafe Ultra Strong.)

I’m living with two distinct “morning people”. Who wake up with the ability to speak. Instantly. In full sentences.

They are so chirpy in the mornings it’s sickening. If any one of them could sing they would surely burst into song. URGGHH.

“THE HILLS ARE ALIIIIIIVEEEEEEEEEE WITH THE SOUND OF MEEHUUSSIC ……….!”

( The farmer can’t sing. You do not want to stand next to this man in a church. I have never heard someone sing so earnestly around all the correct notes. I’ve tried doing it. It’s impossible to copy. )

Back to the morning ritual.

“Mamma, wake up!”

“uhh….”

“Mamma,Mamma ! Open your eye! ”

“uhhh…”

Wet bum-in-soaked-pants in my face.

“Mamma, get up!! ” ( covers off, pulling of arms)

“UHHHHH……….”

“Mamma, tha sun is UP! “

WHOOPEE.

“Mamma!!!! “

Husband with the NESCAFE.

“WAKE UUUPPP…..IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY! “

RIGHT.

“Mamma, it’s a beautiful day! ”

I’m sure it will be. Once I wake up. How about 11h00?

(PS. To all of you hardworking people at work every day at 7h00 or 6h00 in the middle of the nightmorning…….Cheers! ………I raise my coffee mug to you…..)
