Not only did the little one REALLY turn down cake, she turned down cake – after I resorted to the bribery approach to parenting – in front of a load of other parents.
Two minutes later she somehow managed to get hold of my far nicer cake.
During a conversation with the Little One, about her upcoming birthday, I asked about the type of cake she wanted…
LO: A 4 cake!
Me: We can do that, no problems (I think).
LO: A 4 cake, with peas, carrots, and sausage!
I think she got a little confused.
I hope she got a little confused…
She got confused right?
Mummy has asked Little One what she’d like for breakfast…
Little One: “I want a biscuit”
Mummy: “Is that breakfast???”
Little One: “Yes…”
Mummy sorts out breakfast… Soon after, Little One wonders into the kitchen.
Mummy: “What you after?”
Little One: “Biscuit.”
Mummy: “No you need to eat your breakfast.”
Little One: “But I’m really hungry”
