  5. My daughter just the other day appeared to get very excited when she thought she spotted Santa 'off work!'. It was of course, just a man with a big while beard who was probably used to these observations by small children but he still didn't look awfully amused!

  20. Taking my great-niece to the races and she promptly calling all the expensive racehorses donkeys. Oh and telling everyone LOUDLY in Morrisons, she could have a wee all by herself and only needed someone when her "tuppence" (long time "child" word for "down below" in our family - haven't worked out why in all these years) needed wiping. lol

    1. Of course she'd only been toilet-trained (not potty-trained) a few days so she did mean "could go to the toilet and do a wee in it" not "wee by herself" lol

  21. I was 9 months pregnant with my second child. My youngest was four at the time and I had explained to him that he was going to have a little brother, that he was growing in my tummy and he would come very soon. I was in the bath one evening when he came in to talk to me, the baby was kicking and making the water splash and he found this facinating. He asked me how the baby would get out of my tummy and I said that babies come out of a ladies bottom. He looked pleased and yelled "mummy, look He must be coming, I can see his hair" How do you explain that no; it was my pubes!!!
