I swear I’ve got the funniest kids ever! Ben is a complete character that keeps us in stitches most days. Not so much at 3am and Emma is turning out to be a little comedian.
I often say that we might not have money but we’ve got loads of love and funny in our home. Emma’s four, going on 15 and she often comes up with some crackers.
Like the other night. We were in the bath, having one of our chats. Emma says: “when I’m big mom I’m going to have lots of nail polish so I can paint my nails a different colour every day!”
And I say: “ooooh that’ll be nice. You can have a different colour to suit your moods and your outfits!”
She then says: “when I’m big I’m going to cut my hair on my legs like you do. Then we can be the same same!”
And I say: “you must wait til you’re bigger because once you start then you’ve got to keep doing it.”
And she says: “you don’t do it all the time!” pointing to my hairy legs.
After a while I get out the bath and she sits and watches me. I take a sanitary pad out the box, put it where it needs to go and Emma says…
“When I’m big I’ll also have plasters for my panties, hey mom!”
