What so funee ~ tea and a wee

You can't get better than a child who self-chastises....

Boy no.3 - "Can I have my pudding?"
Dad - "Yes, take it now"
Boy no.3 - "But I've not finished my dinner"
Mum - "It's okay, you've eaten enough, have your pudding"
Boy no.3 - "But there's too much dinner left"
Dad - "Well, eat another spoonful"
Boy no.3 - "Awwww man"
Mum - "You don't have to"
Boy no.3 - "I can just have my pudding?"
Mum - "Yes"
Boy no.3 - "How about one more spoonful. Is that enough now?"
Mum and Dad - "Yes!"
Boy no.3 - "Woohoo"

Or funnier than one who gets the wrong end of the stick....



Boy no.4 was in the bath and desperate for a wee, so I grabbed him out and positioned him in front of the toilet on the toddler step. He's trying to turn round and sit down with his knees clamped together "just wee standing up" say I casually. This is a new skill that he's perfecting, I shouldn't have been so glib.

15 seconds later I turn round and he's standing on the toilet seat straddling the loo, trying to direct his aim straight downwards....

I'm linking this to Actually Mummy's Wot so funee...because, really....

  1. Ha ha. The first conversation reminds me of one on the Simpsons where Bart tries reverse psychology on Homer. It doesn't work of course. Bud is trying the weeing standing up too and we found him streaming the toilet the other day, you write about it much more funnily than I could though.

    1. Aw thank you! I really didn't know how to word it so that everyone understood what I meant, and I didn't think a re-enactmnt photo was entirely appropriate :p

      I think I remember that episode of The Simpsons!

  3. We're not quite at the number 1 scenario yet with ours but I can imagine it's the kind of thing that will happen. So funny! And I love the way they take things literally as in scenario 2 - priceless :)

  6. This made me chuckle, love that your little boy was concerned about whether he'd eaten enough dinner!

    Oops to the toilet story too! I'm dreading this when we start potty training my little boy!!!

    1. What I don't understand is how on Earth he managed to climb up there despite being so desperate - I know I couldn't have managed it! :D

  7. ha ha! That is a special art of weeing! Brilliant. I especially love the dinner part, it's ingrained in them to eat their meals so when we say it's ok, don't worry, that throws everything off track!
