Ok so Dudie is a talker… more like talk your ear off talker….
We really do enjoy how well versed he is. And he can hold his own in a conversation. But….Those little remarks about what mom & dad do and what he doesn’t do sometimes has my cheeks slightly rosy.
Exhibit A: Checkers Wine Ad on TV
Dudie: Mommy – What’s that?
Dudie: Only mommy drinks wine. I drink juice and water… And nesquick but mommy drink wine.
Me: And Daddy?
Dudie: Daddy drink cooldrink…..
<The Dude gave the Dudie and extra hug just for that statement>
Exhibit B: Beer Ad Billboard
Dudie: Only Daddy & Mommy drink beer. I drink juice and water.
Me: Yes boy Daddy drinks beer. Not Mommy!
Dudie: YOu did!!!!
Exhibit C: Public Declaration
(I fetched him earlier yesterday and the playground was full of kids and staff)
Dudie: Only Mommy and Daddy drink Beer! Not me. I drink juice and water.
I gave up trying to salvage the situation. This kid will say what he wants to when he wants to. When I got home we did a run through the shops. Went out for dinner. Got home and bathed and put Dudie in bed within record time.
As I plonked myself on the couch, I just don’t have the energy to study right now, Dude brought me an ice-cold Brutal Fruit and a box of Ferrero Rocher 🙂 Luckily Dudie was already asleep…… 🙂
