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?
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?
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.)
