    Be careful of the naughty lampposts mummy!

    Monday Minnie has taken it upon herself to be the best or worst (I’m not sure which) back seat driver. Every single lamppost we pass she shouts ‘Be careful Mummy’. It’s no fun sitting next to her any more I can tell you.. Repetitive doesn’t come into it. Have you seen how many lampposts are out there? Tuesday I have realised that Mummy isn’t quite as shit hot as she should be with her manners. Consequently every time she asks me to do something I’m ignoring her until she says Please at least 3 times. She’s got to learn. Wednesday Minnie decided to scare the bejesus out of Mummy today…

    Hair-brained ideas

    Monday Not speaking to Mummy right now. She tricked me into the barbers today and I happily sat in the chair but when he came at me with that buzzy scary looking clipper contraption I wasn’t having any of it. I batted the man’s hand away, he then refused to do my hair. We left. Result! Tuesday Now I’m really not speaking to HER! (Yes she who shall not be named – ok… Mummy) She only borrowed some clippers and had a go at shaving my head herself. What a flipping mess. I expressed my unhappiness loud and clear but she insisted that once she had started she couldn’t stop.…

    Twinadoes Diary of Three Year Olds Monday – Mummy took me and my big bruv to the beach and she got stung by a wasp and didn’t even cry. Ok she screamed like a proper howler when Teddy said the wasp is still on you and did a weird jerky dance but she still didn’t cry. I was impressed. Tuesday – Playing with my willy today and stuck my finger up it and Mummy nearly vommed, she said this wasn’t appropriate behaviour at Daycare. So I’m guessing anywhere else it’s Ok. Think we’re off to the library tomorrow. Will let you know how that goes. Wednesday – My twin sister…

  • Potty training and willy pulling

    Twinadoes Diary of Three Year Olds Monday – Half an hour late for daycare again today due to my idiot sister. Minnie did not want to wear her unicorn dress today and screamed and rolled around on the floor until Mummy removed it sharpish. She then screamed and rolled around on the floor cos she wanted it back on. Women! I’ll never understand them. Tuesday – Was jumping on the bed tonight and Mummy threatened the dreaded ‘Do you want to go to Time Out?’ If we didn’t lie down and go to sleep immediately. I quickly lay down with my Biya (blankie to you grumpy grown-ups that haven’t a…

    She should have moved out of the way

    Twinadoes Diary of Three Year Olds Monday –  I’m a bit miffed to be honest. Minnie wangled a day out of daycare today, so I had to share Mummy which was OK till about 11.30 and then I decided it wasn’t. So went around tipping every single toy out of every box I could find and throwing a few of them for good measure. That’ll teach Minnie not to muscle in on ‘my time’. Only realised afterwards they were mostly my toys I was throwing but anyway the principle still stands. Tuesday – I love sandwiches. Not Mummy’s rubbish ones but daycare’s ones are the best. Apparently, it’s rude to…

  • To be clothed or not to be? That is the question

    Twinadoes Diary of Three Year Olds Monday – Special day with Mummy, just me and her today cos the daft grown-ups think I have speech delay. So off to the hospital we go. Get to ride on the ferry and scream at every boat and bird I see. Arrive at the hospital 2 hours later and there appears to be some mix up and not a proper appointment. Someone made a boo boo at the hospital . Mummy got all grumpy grown- up face. You should have heard Mummy’s language. Tuesday – Am really getting the hang of this potty training lark. Didn’t want to stay at daycare cos was…

    Kids party mayhem

    Monday – (Minnie) Have decided that the only thing I’m wearing for the rest of eternity (whatever that is, but it sounds like a long time) is my little pink Sponge Bob wetsuit. I don’t see what the problem is? It’s warm, waterproof and sponges down well. I think Mummy may as well throw out the rest of my clothes, as this is it for me. Think I’ll start a new craze. Tuesday – (Mickey) My sister is still wearing that stupid wetsuit. She thinks she looks great but I think it’s dumb. We’re not even going swimming, although I keep thinking we are and trying to grab towels and…

    Pingu again… Result!

    Monday – Thought I’d take my nappy off and pee all over the bedroom floor as a nice surprise for Mummy when she got up. Also, hiding the nappy under the bed where she couldn’t reach it. Surprisingly she wasn’t too impressed. Tuesday – Saw an opportunity to make a break for it this afternoon my brothers were play fighting (as usual) and silly Mummy had left the door onto the dangerous front deck open, the one that we twins aren’t allowed onto but Teddy is, because he’s 6 and is so much more mature (supposedly). Grabbed my chance when Mummy was in the kitchen making me a drink, sucker!…

    Crawling & Climbing

    Monday – Am really nailing this crawling thing. But keep getting stuck in reverse. Wanted my truck and just kept going in the wrong direction. Cried. Cried some more. Tuesday – I think I want to be an explorer when I’m a big person. Either that or work in an ice cream shop. Both seem like lots of fun. Wednesday – Following on from my thoughts of being an explorer I decided to try and explore the bedroom when Mummy put us to bed. Got halfway out of my cot but these darned baby sleeping bags are not built properly, so I fell and gave myself a black eye. Thursday…

    First birthday week

    Monday – Didn’t want to sleep last night. Funnily enough neither of us did so we mutually agreed to take it in turns waking and crying. Worked a treat for us. Not sure what’s up with Mummy today. Tuesday – Repeated the same as the night before and it’s fab. Think we are developing a real pattern that works for us. Mummy seems a bit absent minded today she put the kettle in the fridge. You should have heard the language. There are babies and a toddler in this house. Wednesday – Heard Mummy on the phone to Grandma. Apparently tomorrow is a really big deal. A milestone. No idea…
