Today, the boys had carrots for lunch. This is not in itself a blog-worthy event I realize, but it did help solve one of Johnny's mystery sentences.
He'll be 3 in February and like many small children, has a lot to say for himself. Unfortunately, his speech, though full of amazing vocabulary, is still extremely unclear. Usually I can understand and translate for him, sometimes Mark steps in, but occasionally he has us both stumped. Today was one of those.
Mama, can ree have sa-sa tooo deee?
I got most of it (Mummy, can we have ..... today?), but sa-sa had me baffled. I tried all the usuals - is it something to eat? Is it somewhere you want to go? Is it something to play with? What colour is sa-sa ... Bingo! Sa-sa is red, but unfortunately I am no closer to figuring out what it is.
Very solemnly he takes me by the hand to the fireplace where a piece of carrot has been carefully placed. And the penny drops - Mummy, can we have Santa today? He's luring him back. Think it will work?
I could re-use my gift bags then! Tutorial from Amy, blue elastic (VV Rouleaux) and matching jingle bells (Paperchase) from shopping trip with Caroline.
