Blah Blah Blah…

Ahhh life with a precocious 4 year old child…

Yesterday at the Child Health Nurse (which I will be blogging soon — an experience in itself), the nurse kept referring to me as Tia. Having dealt with that my whole life, I don’t bother correcting anyone anymore unless I am going to have ongoing contact with them(and, after yesterdays experience I will not be going back).

As we were walking out, Mina said loudly (spelled phonetically for effect), “Mum, why does that lady keep calling you Tia? Your name is Taya!”

I could’ve died.

Then, today after I picked her up from daycare, we were having a laugh in the car and I was gently teasing her about her ‘boyfriend’, to which she replied, “Blah blah blah, my name is Téa”

As you can imagine, I busted a vein in my neck from the laughter whilst simultaneously trying to concentrate on the road.

And also, on a sentimental note, there is nothing like walking out to your loungeroom to see your 4 year old daughter and 5 month old son interacting like old friends. I never thought that having 2 kids would be so magical — and I never ever imagined that Mina would be the sister that she is. Save for the odd head slap and upside down dummy, or the being-lifted-up-even-though-she-is-14kg-and-he-is-8.5kg-and-this-is-just-pointless…

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
