Mummy, I'm So Sick

My little darling is quite the hypochondriac. True, she has been sneezing a little bit, and her nose has been running, but it doesn’t seem to be serious. Probably due to the weather.
In any case, I’ve been giving her some medication since it started 3–4 days ago. Every morning she wakes up, drinks her milk and asks for her medicine. She looks very disappointed when she gets only one teaspoonful, and asks for another. Then she pouts for a couple of seconds when the answer is ‘no’.
In addition to the anti-histamine she gets her daily dose of calcium and cod liver oil, so she cheers up immediately.
The other day she asked for some tissue because she was ‘blessing’ (sneezing) and nose was ‘blowing’ (running)…!

What Did You Say? - 3

Yesterday, Thaïs tried to climb up one of the chairs and swing off the back rest. She has been doing this for a few days now. I tried to caution her but, as usual, she assured me she knew what she was doing.
Me: Thaïs, be careful. You might fall.
Thaïs: No. Won’t fall. I’m careful-ing…!
She’s only about two-and-a-half, but her vocabulary is almost as colorful as her father’s. ‘Shut Up’ has become a routine word now. She uses it when, after several minutes of pulling her leg, light finally dawns.
‘Swine’ and ‘Bloody Bassad’ are abuses reserved for uncouth drivers.
She says ‘Damn Shit’ out of frustration when she has reached the limits of her dexterity.
‘Bloody Bitch’ is occasionally used on her imaginary friend.
I’ve saved the best (or the worst) for last. The ‘F’ word. That’s used when she wants some attention.
Or simply repeating what Mario has said.
What’s amazing is that she knows exactly when to abuse.
I know we should probably be more strict and correct her more often… Later, when she grows up a bit and it doesn’t sound quite as cute.

Similarities Between Husband And Baby

  • Both love the beach
  • Both have loud voices
  • Both lose their balance while pulling up their pants

My little darling got punished yesterday. She messed up some settings on the computer, so was made to stand in the corner and face the wall for 5 minutes. Well, we started out with 5 minutes, but let her off the hook after 3.

I didn’t think she’d actually face the corner for any length of time. Guess she was too scared to disobey!
