"Here doggy, have some dinner? You hungry? Num num num. Num nums. You sit there! Be good! (various other growls as Ava gets angry and 'tells off' her doggy....I wonder where she gets that from?) Babble, Babble, Talk, Babble....silence....Fuck you!"
Oh dear God.....why did it have to be when we had guests? Kate looked at me, I looked at her. I knew she would find it the funniest thing in the world (she did, cruel woman that she is) and even though it doesn't even matter, and it is just a word,
I was mortified.
Lucky my darling friends have a very good sense of humour. Love you, Kate.

Ava is intolerant to dairy, and so she can't have milo, but we can have hot chocolate. Cadbury drinking chocolate is dairy free, so in the morning we will have a hot chocolate. Unfortunately for Ava, she can't quite make the 'ch' sound yet, so most mornings I am woken up with this:
'Mummy, I want hot cocklet.'
Give me ten or so years, and I will begin to worry, but for now, funny, every single time I hear it.

The other morning Ava was playing animals, and I was lying in bed.
"I'm a tiger! Raaaa! Raaaa!...I'm a cat! Meow! Meow! Mummy, I'm a cat!"
Soon I was giving suggestions.
"Be a horse! Be a lion!"
His Majesty chimed in.
"Be a giraffe!"
Hmmm, he wanted quiet so he could go back to sleep. Fat chance! And who is still asleep at 5.30am....pfft! I mean really.
Just a last titbit, for your information. Turtles have very deep voices and scuttle around the bedroom floor bellowing "Tuuuuuuuuuur tttlllllllllllllllllllllllllle!" over and over. (That one kinda back fired!)
