Doesn’t get as much airtime on here so here are some things that made me chuckle.
Friday evening after the nursery pick-up and school run I made a detour on the way home to pick up some supplies for the weekend. Walking two cubs around the supermarket always provides me with more material than I can ever remember but this one pipped the lot.
As I walked past a display of multi-packed crisps, a tiny voice behind me asked ‘Daddy; this please?’
I turned just in time to see my 3 year old pulling enthusiastically on one of the bottom packets. In engineering, I believe that it would be called the ‘keystone’ packet.
He let out a melancholic ‘Oh no!‘ before disappearing beneath a landslide of 20 multi-packs.
A quick rescue operation later he was fine.
Big Sis had her first sleepover yesterday
I thought that he’d be a bit more troubled without her but the drop off went well, as did bath and bedtime.
He hadn’t had an afternoon nap so he more or less went straight off after brief story and discussion about Peppa and George. Luckily daddy is an expert.
The next morning, I explained that after breakfast, we’d go and collect her from her friends.
Everything was going smoothly; dressed, teeth brushed, shoes and coat on and strapped into his car seat all in perfect time. He even had his current favourite thing, his Triceratops.
I jogged around to the driver’s side and jumped in, congratulating myself on parent skills only to be slapped back to reality by searing, acute pain.
Unbeknown to me, his favourite toy had been thrown onto my seat with crackerjack timing.
Whilst my life flashed before my eyes, a question ran through my head; how had a [tiny] knife man gotten into my car and assaulted me??
A quick inspection of the wound site revealed the offending object.
He was chuckling behind me; I was wondering why they felt the need to make toys out of kryptonite and agony.
I’m just glad I’ve had children already.
