The train & the dip (& other tresting tales) – wot so funee?

Last weekend we visited Duxford Air Museum (you can read all about it here) with Andrew’s grandparents, and he received a few lessons in aviation engineering from Pop. One fairly basic one was on those things that spin around on aeroplanes that were designed and built before jet engines came along; Andrew can now very accurately tell you how many

Let him eat cake – wot so funee?

Once again Andrew has been coming out with some great funees this week. In his world, there is a lot of cake. If it’s something that looks edible, or is in a place with other things he knows are edible, but he’s not tried it himself before, then he will often call it a “X cake” [for X insert suitable

Spesul divvy service – wot so funee?

This week there has been a lot of talk of a certain deliverer of letters and parcels whose initials are PP. We have a few random episodes of the original TV series on DVD, but recently Grandad thought it would be a great idea to record some of the new ‘SDS’ episodes that are currently shown on CBeebies for us

Parrot fashion – wot so funee?

It was last Tuesday evening when the four of us were having dinner that this little scene happened. I wish I’d had my video camera on, but short of having it running all day every day, I’m unlikely to catch the funny things that Andrew comes out with on video. I’d served up a slow cooked veggie casserole with mashed

Now Andrew gave up eating

Shufflepot ice cream – wot so funee?

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we’ve just been on holiday for a week to the Lake District. During the week, Andrew came out with a few things that tickled us, or even made me howl with laughter in utter astonishment! So here’s my offering for the wot so funee linky this week…. Kisskin First up is a type of

Noah and the shark – wot so funee?

One of the first blogs I came across when I started blogging just over a year ago was Actually Mummy – cleverly written as if from the perspective of a 7-year old loquacious school girl, and most posts are guaranteed to make me ‘LOL’ (not sure I’m cool enough to pull that one off?!) I spotted a while ago that

Mr Chatterbox

It’s about time that i wrote another update on Andrew’s language development and shared a few videos that I’ve taken of him talking recently. He’s become quite a little chatterbox; sometimes it seems like he’s never without something to say, either commenting on what’s going on, or recounting a past experience he had, or asking us a question. It’s amazing

Baby talk

I only started blogging when Andrew was nearly a year old, so I didn’t blog anything about his early speech and language development. As Joel has been making some lovely noises with his vocal apparatus over the past month or so, I thought I’d start on my record of how his talking develops. He doesn’t have a wide range of
