Can I whack it???

The boys found a little praying mantis in the back yard today. Thomas quickly found his toy golf club to poke it with and, from his medical kit, a pair of surgical tweezers to use for inspecting it. Thomas was being very gentle looking at it and wanted to feed it a leaf.

Lachlan, on the other hand, was quite the opposite. He came up with his little cricket bat and asked,

Can I whack it???

Chinese Food

So the Olympics ceremony was on and Thomas was watching it on TV this morning. When the little girl in the red dress started singing, in Chinese, Thomas asks:

“What’s she saying Mummy?”

to which Luci replied,

“I don’t know any Chinese darling.”

Thomas then says,

“So you just know Chinese food and that’s all??”

Bless him.

Can’t Wait For Everything

This afternoon when Luci arrived home, her Mum relayed this funny story…

Lyn takes Thomas and Lachlan shopping with her every Thursday. They usually go and visit Luci’s Grandma (who they call Granma Max) at a nursing home called John Whittle House. They went again today and as they walked up the hall toward my grandmother’s room my Mum warned Thomas about the death of my grandmother’s roommate – it happened over the weekend. She said, “Now you know that Grace has gone to Heaven and so she doesn’t share the room with Granma Max anymore.” Thomas replied in his usual matter-of-fact way, “Well, I wish she had waited to die until I got here because I would’ve liked to watch and see what happened so that I know what happens for when I die.”

Luci was speechless but when she told me the story I thought it was hilarious!!

So, do you want a beer?

Thomas had Special Persons Day at pre-school, with Poppy Gray being the Special Person invited. Poppy Gray was telling me what happened:

Thomas was showing me around, and he took me into one of the cubby houses which was set up as a Police Station. Thomas started to tell me how if the alarm starts to go off, we have to quickly rush out to the emergency. Then Thomas took me to the next cubby house, which was set up like a lounge/dining room – tables and chairs, etc. Thomas sits down on one of the chairs and says to me, “So Poppy, do you want a beer?”

Of course, Poppy then had to look around and make sure no one had heard what Thomas had said… people would be thinking we were alcoholics or something!!

You have to say it loud

Luci was telling me that she was sitting on the lounge with the boys today, when Lachlan let out a little quiet fart. Luci leaned over and told him to say “Pardon Me.”

Lachlan said “Pardon Me” very quietly.

At this point Thomas chimes in, rather loudly, to tell Lachlan, “No Lachlan, you have to say it loud enough so your bum hears!!

what you do on the toilet

Thomas went to do a poo. When we checked on him, he was reading this book, because “that’s what you do when you do a poo!”

Never mind that the book is upside down! By the way, the book is Lyn’s, not Luci’s (or mine 🙂 ) – I must remember to ask her how the Belly dancing is going 😆
