Conversations with a toddler

For quite some time now I’ve been documenting snippets of conversation between Elspeth and myself. I thought it might be fun to compile some of the more amusing bits here!

13th March 2011

Aidan: What’s daddy’s real name?
Elspeth: Mummy.

8th March 2011

Ellie: The cat, the cat!
Me: What cat?? *can’t see a cat*
Ellie: The gone cat.

29th March 2011

Ellie: Cuppa tea! Cuppa tea!
Me: Do you want mummy to have a cup of tea?
Ellie: Yes!
Me: That’s a good reason for me to have a cup of tea!

8th Sept 2011

Me: Time for a bath!
Ellie: Moo moo, I’m a cow!
Me: Cows need baths too.
Ellie: No they don’t, just Ellie.
Me: Well, ok, are you going to be Ellie so you can have a bath?
Ellie: Ummmm…. yes!

5th May 2012

Ellie: I’m taking my little dog for a little walk.
Me: That’s nice, everyone should have a hobby.
Ellie: I’m not a hobby!

9th May 2012

After giving Elspeth a small amount of his chocolate mousse, Aidan said to Elspeth, ‘No more of that, or you’ll be bouncing off the walls.’ She replied, in a reproving tone, ‘You shouldn’t bounce off walls.’

21st May 2012

Ellie: What’s that cat doing?
Me: Sitting on the roof of our shed.
Ellie: Will he come down?
Me: I don’t know, you’d better ask him.
Ellie: Can you come down here, cat? Come on, I’m down here. Down on the ground. Come on, come on, quick sticks!

23rd May 2012

Ellie: Giraffe sneezed!
Me: Did he put his hand over his mouth?
Ellie: Giraffes don’t have hands.
Me: So what did he put over his mouth?
Ellie: His tail.
