Dolly keeps informing me that Robin is her friend at nursery;
Me: Is Robin your new friend?
Dolly: No mama but he gives me biscuits !!
It’s not hard to see where Dolly’s priorities lie.
Once a week Dolly’s nursery sell the end of day croissants from the local bakery with all the proceeds going to charity.
One day she was really wanting a croissant and not taking it to well she couldn’t have one, the conversation went as follows;
Dolly: “I want a croissant mama”
Me: (thinking on my feet) “Oh no dolly these are mouldy croissants”
Dolly: ” but that boy’s eating a mouldy croissant mama” (pointing to one of the many children running around with croissant in hand)
Me: “that boy will get a very sore tummy”
So now every week when it’s croissant day Dolly points and shouts telling the children they are eating mouldy croissants and they are going to get very sore tummies.
At some point time is going to catch up with me on this and I am going to have to do some very fast talking. So for now on bakery day I am going to let my husband unknowingly collect Dolly from nursery.
Why is it that Dolly a lot of the time always wants to eat the opposite of what I have cooked?
Just as I am approaching the dining table with her freshly prepared meal I am told ”I want fish Mama”
Today Dolly is having fish disguised as chicken with fresh vegetables. Not sure how much longer I am going to get away with this trick.
I know when the ham sandwich I have made for Dolly has not been fully appreciated when it comes flying past me while driving having being thrown at full force from the back seat.
