This Morning


Or in other words - the middle of the night.

I stumble into Charlie's room after hearing his usual wake up mama routine.

As I walk in he stands up in his cot, stretches out his hands and states in an imperious tone :

"I get up now".

I'm surprised he didn't add the word 'slave' to then end of that sentence when addressing me like that.

But the novelty of having a not quite 2 year old boss me around using the language skills of a 3 year old, meant that my response was, of course :

"Yes, your Highness".

I love that he can verbalise more at this age than Kaiden and Corey ever could. It gives such an insight into what he's thinking and how he's thinking that I would otherwise never get.

Observing the inner workings of a toddler mind can be fascinating.

If not a little disturbing at times.

But it definitely provides lots of laughs around here.


  1. Oh... Sam does this to me... except he now comes into my room... takes off my covers and orders me to get breakfast...

    Something is wrong with this picture.

  2. At least he's still sleeping in his cot. Does he not try and escape from it?


  3. Luckily I don't think it's yet occurred to him to try and escape from his cot. I'm dreading the day LOL
