Some cute!19 June , 2012
I thought today would be a good time to catch up on some of the cute things Nicola’s been saying and doing after all of yesterday’s doom and gloom.
Firstly, my pink terrorist has developed an unhealthy fascination with the handbrake in my car! The other day she made a move to touch it and I said “Nee!” she said, “Maar Mamma, daar’s ‘n knoppie!” so I said, “Ja…maar daai knoppie is net vir mammas. Jy mag dit nie druk nie, okay?” she thought about it for a minute and then said, “Druk hom Mamma! Druk hom!” Since we were driving I thought okay, so at the next traffic light I pressed the button and pulled up the handbrake. Only to be rewarded with, “Baie mooi Mamma…” and a very encouraging nod of approval. Then she told me that I should only use the button to shoot dinosaurs. 😆 I assume she’s seen some movie, possibly with a fighter plane or something where pressing the button shoots something?
Last week when I was properly sick and in bed, my mom collected Nicola from school for me and they were chatting up a storm. According to Nicola all the trees with no leaves are angry trees (Kwaai bome!). We’re pretty sure this comes from Shrek, but there you have it. The trees are angry, that’s why they don’t have any leaves. 😉
There’s a bully in Nicola’s class…a boy named M. I’ve met him and his sister whose a year younger and they’re actually both pretty unmannered brats in general. Every day Nicola comes home with some tale of woe of how this kid has hurt her today. I’ve spoken with her teacher about it and she says that he actually isn’t guilty of all that but that he tends to run around in the class a lot and often accidentally bumps into the other children or knock them over. He spends a lot of time in the naughty corner. Well…M gets blamed for a lot of things in our house these days. If I bump myself and end up with a bruise somewhere Nicola is convinved that it was M that did it – and no one can convince her of anything else. If I get a pimple, he’s usually blamed for my Bad Eina in that regard too! 😆
Last night we had fish and veg for dinner. Nicola started off happily muching on her own but at some point decided that she would actually prefer it if I fed her…but…she would only let me feed her if she could feed me. So there we were, sitting at our table opposite each other. for every spoonful of food I gave her she would give me one in return. And I got a “baie mooi mamma” for each bite I ate too! 😆
She really is just getting cuter and cuter by the day…
Ps! My car looks like it’s going to be fixed for a bit less than I initially anticipated (I did ask them for a worst case scinario to be fair). A whole R2000 less than that. Fantastic! 😀
