Turi: put a movie on mum
Me: it's 8:15 in the morning. I'm not putting a movie on
Turi: put a movie on
Me: all you ever want to do is watch movies. You need some other hobbies
Turi: what about my dinosaur?
Me: that's a great idea!
Turi: we could pretend that was my hobby and then you could put a movie on.
After breaking the rules Minty was told she would not be getting dessert...
Minty: it will give me great pleasure if you give me dessert
Me: there's a reason you're not getting dessert tonight
Minty [crossly]: you're being very unusual! If you behave like this you're not going to be anyone's mum. You'll have to go in the bin…. I'm getting a bit crosser than I am. If you don't get my dessert i'm going to put the poo face on.
Me: well what are you going to do to fix the problem?
Minty [indignantly]: I said I was sorry
Me: I know you said you were sorry but are you just going to do it again tomorrow?
Minty: only if you don't look.
After discovering head lice in Minty's hair (gross I know!!)...
Me: I just found the mother load
Minty [musing]: I wonder when you're going to find the father load…
Minty [excitedly]: I think we should do a bit of a clean up
Me: That's a great idea!
Minty: because then Santa might bring us a reindeer! He's a pretty nice man.
