New and Amazing
My twelve month old stood on the lounge next to me and looked out the window into the night sky.
He pointed upwards and said, 'Ball ... Sky ... Mummy.'
And I saw through his eyes what it was like to see the moon for the first time ...
'I'm Not a... '
My two-and-a-half year old son and I were sitting in the park together, watching the traffic pass us by.
My son pointed at one vehicle and said, 'Look mummy. It's a car truck!'
'It's called a u-tility. I emphasized the first sound so it might help him to remember it.
He frowned and looked me straight in the eye. 'But I'm not a tillity,' he said.
I left my toddler on the potty near rolls of toilet paper.
He unrolled three or four rolls completely and then proceeded to rip them into tiny pieces.
What I saw looked something like this ...
Pre School News Time
Shakeela: 'Good morning children.'
Class: 'Good morning Shakeela.'
Shakeela: 'My mummy got a new bed.'
Teacher: 'That's nice.'
Shakeela:' Yeh, cause she got a new boyfriend.'
...But what he saw, was this.
Nothing But the Truth
I'd always prided myself on explaining things fully to my kids, according to their level of understanding.
And on this particular day my three year old and I got to discussing how babies were made.
After about twenty minutes and answering every question honestly about where mummy's eggs were stored in my tummy, it progressed.
I explained conception by saying 'Daddy fertilizes mummy's eggs with a special part of his body and that makes the egg grow into a baby.'
'Oh.' he said. 'But what's daddy's special part?'
I pictured him, at three years of age, explaining exactly how babies are conceived at preschool news and I choked.
'Awwwh... you'll have to ask Daddy,' I replied.
Our car had broken down in Goondiwindi and the only place we could find to stay was next to the highway. Every time yet another semi-trailer roared through, dust swirled around us.
So I took our kids, Sam and Nick, to our caravan to escape. I tried to amuse them, while my husband went for a walk to see if he could find us some takeaway.
But while checking the place out he came across a cockatoo.
'Hello Sam... Hello Sam,' it went.
My husband laughed and rushed back to get us all.
And when we saw the cockatoo it started up again. 'Hello Sam... Hello Sam,' it said over and over again.
My four-year-old gasped. His jaw dropped. He clasped his hands to his face in wonder.
'But how does he know my name mummy?' he said.
Clever Mr Fox
I'd been trying to get my three-and-a-half-year-old son to pick up his toys by using a number of different strategies from: 'I wonder how long it'll take you to pick up your toys. You start and I'll count,' through to 'I'll see if I can pack away faster than you...'
After my many failed attempts he turned and just looked at me. He tipped his head to the side and said, 'You're just trying to manipulate me Mum!'
After I picked my jaw up off the floor I said, 'Yes, I am trying to manipulate you. I'm trying to manipulate you to be good.'
'Oh!' he said, pursing his lips in consideration and nodded. Then went to pick up his toys.
Go figure, I thought.
But as I was congratulating myself on finally achieving some success, a thought gripped my heart with icy fingers, and squeezed.
Awwwh... What's parenting him going to be like when he's a teenager.
