Toddlers spend endless hours classifying things. For a while, everything on wheels is a car, then suddenly their world opens up as they discover tractors, lorries, scooters, bikes…
One of the most difficult ones for them to figure out appears to be people. It’s not surprising really but we have been getting lots of amusement from the small one’s attempts at categorisation.
Today was a classic. Having seen her 18 year old brother’s friends this morning, I was asking her whether they were men, ladies, boys or girls. She was doing pretty well – Tom – boy, Jake – boy… and then we came to the difficult question of her beloved brother. “Bub… hmmm….” and, after much consideration, the eyes lit up… “Bub. MORE BISCUIT MAN.”
So now we know.
If the BBC are looking for someone to commentate on a big event, they could do worse than hire my toddler, who gave a comprehensive and insightful commentary throughout the Royal Wedding on Friday. In case you missed it, here are the highlights:
Car! …Man hat! …Lady hat! …Man! …Horse! …2 Horse! …Car! …Bus, Bus, Bus! Wheels go round!….Lady hat! …Button! Lellow Lady! …Blanket! …Lady! …Lady Man sit down! …Babee! …Car! …Horse! … Bye Bye! …Hello! …Kiss-Cuuddle!
Almost as if you were there – no?
Nothing feels more amazing than being able to make my baby laugh. This makes me feel like Wonder Woman… Have a lovely Easter! xxx
