Old MacDonald aint got nothing on Grace!

So I was showing off Gibby’s verbal skills to the family at my Mother-in-law’s  yesterday.

It went wrong.

Me: Grace what does a cow say?

Grace: Mooooooooo!

Me: and what does a Dog day?

Grace: Ruff ruff ruff!

***Everyone is making suitably appropriate noises of encouragement and praise***

Me: Yey! Well done! What does a sheep say?

Grace: Baaaaa.

Me: What does a Guinnea pig say? ***smug glance around the room to all***

Grace: Weep weep weep weeeeeeeeep.

Me: What does Daddy say?

Grace: Beep beep beep (Due to the fact Daddy often presses her nose with a “beep beep noise”.)

Me: Grace, what does Grandma say?

Grace: EEEE  –  OOOOOR!

***Long pause whilst tumble weed blows across the room . . . ***

Honest to God . . . . . why???

(Thank goodness Mum-in-law has a sense of humour.)

  3. Hahaha! You can always rely on children to show you up 🙂
