Forget-me-not-Friday #64

Forget-me-not-Friday

My nearly-two year old is learning to fend for herself…it’s also interesting watching her language develop as she tends to shout “I don’t like it the [insert item of offence]..” instead of just “I don’t like…”

Me: “Eat some of your salmon”

Nearly-two-year-old: “No I don’t like it the salmon. Want more sweet corn”.

Me: “But you can’t just eat sweet corn, you’ve got to eat some of your fish, too.”

Nearly-two-year-old, voicing rising in pitch: “Want more sweet corn!”

Me: “What about some sausage?”

Nearly-two-year-old: “I DON’T LIKE IT THE SAUSAGE I WANT MORE SWEETCORN!!”

Four-year-old, seeing an opportunity to gang up on me: “Mummy, I think we should just have some pudding.”

Welcome to life with two assertive girls…

Working Mum of two, living in Didsbury, Manchester, in a house which breeds washing, mushed up raisins and various toys in the brightest primary colours. Oh, and the odd empty wine glass.

  1. Oh my gosh I think your daughter might be a clone of my son when it comes to eating, he will devour sweetcorn over anything else! But with him everything is “I NEED more sweetcorn” 🙂

  2. Haha I have two assertive girls and one assertive boy so far and mealtimes can be exhausting! Some days I make them exactly what they want to eat just for the satisfaction of having them clear their plates!! x x
