Conversations with Minty and Turi...

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.

  1. I love these chats you record - I'm also a little amazed at your memory, I am hopeless at remembering them, I think it's amazing.
