One of my favourite things about Iyla talking is the way she comes out with some hilarious one-liners.
I regularly hear her say things to Dad2BabyInsomniac when I’m in the bath or kitchen and they make me crack up. I didn’t want to forget them so I started writing them down.
Here is the best selection from the last week, I have to add that she does say the word bloody quite a lot, we managed to stop nearly all swearing but bloody is the one word that still slips out and of course she has picked up on it …
“Daddy, are you a rip-off?”
“Daddy, stand on your knees and eat your bloody cake”
“Daddy, I’ve found your eyes” – She was sitting there with a pack of his contact lenses.
“Mummy, I’m so cool”
“Give me a bath, you skank”
“I like your hairbries” (eyebrows)
“Don’t dry my toes, you dullard”
“My mind’s in a tizz”
“Are you putting on your glasses Daddy? Ooooh looking good!”
“The bloody batteries have run out”
“What’s on my leg Mummy? I’m not sure Iyla, what is it? A piece of crap”
“Life’s not fair”
“I want to pop an egg”
“A-tissue A-tissue we all have fun”
“I love eating cat”
“Mummy, can I smell your arms?”
“Daddy, there’s a turd in there”
I am already looking forward to reminding her of these when she is all grown-up!
