Conversations With My Daughter #26

July 2012

My daughter is marching around the front room, blowing a whistle and shouting rules at me:
*peeep*
“Don’t throw your towels if you say ding-dong!”
*peeep*
“Don’t blow up anybody else’s birthday if it’s not yours!”
*peeep*
“If you don’t like someone, don’t go back to their house!”
*peeep*
“Don’t touch the fire ‘cos it’s hot!”
*peeep*
“Don’t lick the television!”
*peeep*
“Don’t take the horse to Spain!”
*peeep*
“If you don’t catch your mother, it runs away!”
*peeeep*
“If you’re not tidying up, we won’t go to nobody’s birthday!”
*peeeep*
“You don’t get a bedroom if it’s not tidy!”
*peeeep*
“Build a train track if you want to! Now shut up!”
*peeeep*
“Don’t ride your bike if you feel poorly!”
*peeeep*
“If you don’t want to go camping, you mothers and fathers will go anyway!”
*peeep*
“Excuse me, I’m going to get something difficult! Here’s a sticker!!”

[Exits room, humming one of her “tunes”]

Got that?
