The summer holidays have been and gone, and with a final flurry of family birthdays, weekends away and days out we’re now back to school with a bump. In recognition of another year passed and a new school year beginning, I thought it would be perfect timing to share my ‘Five Funny Things’ post.
I was tagged in this a few weeks ago by Louise over at Mummy Miller, you can find her ‘Five Funny Things’ post here.
So the top five (it was tricky to narrow them down) funny things that my children do are:
1. Eating all the food
All of it. Everywhere. If we go to a birthday party Munch sweeps the leftovers onto his plate with aplomb. He has been known to tuck a piece of toast into the crook of his arm as he wanders out of the kitchen with a casual flair, hoping nobody will have noticed him sneaking away from the table with food.
2. Rugby tackles
These come courtesy of The Loud One. For a two year old he packs a huge amount of energy into his muscles and can tackle me to the floor as part of a game. He is a complete gentle giant but also very enthusiastic when it comes to burning off energy as he plays! This extends to him being very adept at the art muscling in to photobomb at every opportunity…!
3. Cushion fort
Number three is owned by all of our boys. Whilst some people have duvet days, our boys have come up with cushion fort days. Instead of watching the telly snuggled under a blanket, cushions are carefully arranged, normally into a square shape, and they sit in that. It is super cute to see and we should definitely take more photos before they lose the desire to sit happily in such close proximity.
4. Road hills
Ever driven along a road with inclines or declines? So have we, lots of them. The Loud One shouts out with glee every time the road changes from flat to undulating “road hills!!!!!”. He absolutely loves them and I suspect that when he is a little older than two he will be quite the adrenaline junkie.
Another from Munch, this time it’s names. He tries so hard to recall the names of those around him, but with a blur of school friends, his siblings’ friends, adults and more it’s easy to understand that the odd one might get forgotten. Being the sociable creature that he is, he doesn’t like this to stand in his way. Instead of getting caught up in diplomatically skirting around the issue at hand, or spending time asking, he makes up a name instead. Normally it is similar but not quite the actual name of the person whom he is addressing. Whilst I admit to hoping that this foible is outgrown at some stage, at the moment it is pretty sweet!
What funny things do your little ones do that make you laugh or smile?
Thank you again to Louise for the tag!
