Playing with Idris

Today Anna and I went to play with baby Idris. I invented a fun game where I pushed him over and Anna sat him back up. We laughed a lot but unfortunately he got fed up with the game before I did!

Today Léon had a cool skeleton on his nose! Mummy had great fun painting it on him. I had a little tiny flower too!

Silly dentist

So Mummy took me to the dentist today - what a stupid man!
I was standing there holding onto his stool while he was looking in Léon's mouth and he said - he wasn't worried about checking any of mum's kids except for 'him there' pointing at me! Him??? I'm a girl. Do I look like a boy? How many boys do you know who wear purple tights and t-shirts, how many wear dungaree dresses for that matter? What a silly little man he is!

Nonsense bag?

I'm affronted! She called me a nonsense bag! What a cheek - doesn't she know a scientist when she sees one? When an adult fills a bath full of bubbly water and leaves it for two minutes, what is a baby to do other than test whether books float? How else am I supposed to know? She says the only reason I'm still alive is that I floated kids' books and not adult ones! What kind of mother is that?!


Always busy

I've had quite a busy week this week.
Yesterday Mummy left me on the chair at the breakfast bar for five minutes while she was taking things out of the fridge. While she had her back turned to me, I took the opportunity to remove the flowers from the pots on the window sill to see if there was anything hidden in the mud under them - but there wasn't. What a disappointment... So I decided the next thing to be investigated was my pot of nappy cream. I found out that if you spread it on thinly, you can cover all your clothes, some of the floor and still have enough left over to taste. Daddy pulled off my dungarees and put me down so he could clean up. What else was I supposed to do but make my way into the dining room and colour in Léon and Anna's white drawing table with a brown pen... of course while I was doing that it occurred to me that if I was to stand on a chair, I might be able to reach the curtains and colour them in too but mummy caught me just before I could start.
I guess I need to go to bed now and think up some more cunning plans for tomorrow!


Silly Mad John

Mummy and daddy have encouraged me to write a new blog all about Silly Mad John, my pretend Grandpa. He gets up to so much, it is worth noting it all down, so I don't forget it.


Clothes pegs

Mummy had a basket of clothes pegs sitting on the patio outside her bedroom door. I think clothes pegs are quite fascinating. I am particularly curious about the mechanism holding them together and causing them to open and then spring closed. I took about a third of them apart just to check exactly how they worked. Mummy wasn't the least bit pleased with me but I heard Daddy saying 'I bet Amaia is going to grow up to be an engineer', so I guess he is proud of me!

I like looking after my baby. I like to give her some of my milk. She likes that.

I got my face painted again this weekend at Grace's circus birthday party. I think I look very pretty :-)

Today I got my face painted at Léon's school. I've never had my face painted before. I think I looked very pretty.

We went for a walk in Culzean on Saturday. There were hundreds of flowers on the ground. They were purple. Mummy kept calling them 'bluebells'. That is a stupid name for them. I refused to call them that. I decided to call them 'purple bells'.
