Things I Have Said To My Two Year Old Today

  • Ooh lovely sweetheart
  • Yes very nice
  • Yes but we're choosing a card for Daddy
  • Because it's his birthday
  • Here what about this one?
  • No not that one
  • No
  • Put it back please
  • No, put it back
  • I don't think Daddy wants a Spiderman card
  • No darling he doesn't
  • Because it's got Spiderman on it
  • And it says to a wonderful grandson

  • Come back here please
  • I said come here
  • How many times have I told you not to chase the postman?
  • Because he doesn't like it
  • No he's not Daddy
  • Please stop calling the postman Daddy

Things I have said to the Postman today

  • Ha ha ha ha ha
  • Oh how funny
  • Yes it's a great joke Jack chasing you
  • And calling you Daddy, yes
  • ha ha ha ha
  • Well he thinks you're his daddy
  • No, no, no he does know his daddy
  • Ha, yes I suppose he does make it sound like a guess
  • Ha ha ha
  • I agree
  • Yes I'll try to stop him chasing you
  • And shouting kissy kissy kissy
  • I'm sorry the neighbours look at you strangely
  • No I don't think we need to get him checked out
  • It's just a phase
  • Well, a chasing and kissing one
  • That he'll grow out of
  • He's already starting to progress
  • He's started chasing the neighbour
  • Well I call it progress

ooooh - my eldest called every tall man with dark hair 'daddy'. This made trips to the grocery store fun. I particularly liked it when she addressed the teenaged bag boys.

A child who implies that his own father is a cuckold is a cunning imp. Very oedipal, in my view.

Nota Bene said...

At least it's not the milkman. By the way, I think Daddy would love a spiderman card; I know I would

The Peach Tart said...

This made me smile so wide. I remember these conversation years ago and forgot how amusing they can be. Good luck.

Expat mum said...

I once got a birthday cake with Spiderman on it!! (And I was in my late 30's)

Gin said...

I just spit out my tea all over my computer screen. Hilarious!

Lora said...

my son called everyone Daddy. It was horrifying sometimes. Especially when he would call masculine looking women Daddy.

nappy valley girl said...

The Littleboys call any man with vaguely grey hair 'Grandad'. Which can seem quite rude....

magnumlady said...

lol really funny. I bet it gives the neighbours something to talk about ;)

frogs+sprogs said...

That just made me laugh out loud, brilliant!

AnyEdge said...

When I chase the postman calling him 'daddy' and saying 'kissy kissy', he won't even stop to chat.

Mwa said...

My daughter did the same with the roof repair men next door. Perfectly normal! Just quite embarrassing.

Would daddy not like a Spiderman card? How strange.

manicmum said...

Ha! They do it on purpose. Children start to embarrass us as soon as they can hoping they'll stop us from doing the same to them.
Loved this - really original!

Eva Gallant said...

hilarious!

just stopping bv from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do thr same.

Kim said...

LoVe this story! :o)

Clare W said...

Funny how you remind me of so much from my childrens' younger days: My daughter used to march round Somerfield until she loudly informed the entire shop that she had found Daddy's milk (the Stella)!

rosiero said...

Brilliant!

Angela said...

Hahaha, that was so funny! Yes, my own did so strange things, too, and wait till they are teenagers...Thanks for stopping by at my blog. Shall I put on recipes for leek salad next time?

Lori ann said...

Thanks for the laugh, I love to start the day like that. At least your boy is two and not twenty, then you'd have something to worry about...☺

Thanks for stopping by.
So one time when I was in Philly and in the cinema, and just chatting to my two American friends with the adverts on, I probably shouldn't have asked why they no longer had any adverts for fags!!!! I can now speak American.... I learnt quick before I got thrown out of the country!

My mistake! I belong to a blogging group Called The "S"ecret's "I"n "T"he "S"auce; nickname..SITS. We visit each other's blogs, and comment. I must have been thinking that I was blog hopping from SITS when I commented on your blog. check the group out if you like. Every day a blog is featured, and you are invited to visit it and leave a comment. Also, there is a roll call where we just sign in and say "hi" and everyone visits the blog of the person who signed in ahead of them. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and see all different kinds of blogs, and it can increase the traffic to your blog. There are over 3000 bloggers in the group, and most days, around 450 show up for roll call. If you like checking out different blogs, and getting new visitors for yours, it's a great networking site.

My husband would have loved the spiderman card, it would just need a little editing with some crayon or something.

Jules said...

Vicki said...

I love the life with a 2 year old. Never a dull moment. I think the yuckiest thing I have ever said is "Because I don't want to taste your poopie, we aren't supposed to eat it!" sigh

anyway, following from SITS! I am sure I will see you again soon!

Mike said...

You should tell the postman he should be happy he didn't bite him. If he still doesn't have a sense of humor. Tell him you'll stop at his house, knock on the door, and when the door opens you'll let your son call him daddy and chase him. His wife will love that.

KatyLittleStuff said...

You've made us laugh so we've awarded you our Blog Love!

A Confused Take That Fan said...

Funny. My postman has asked me to stop chasing him too...

Mighty M said...

So fun to see these out of context. I ought to try this sometime! ;-)
