A transcript of our meal time! Is your house like this? I just feel like the dialogue never stops.
The kids do say some funny things though!
Do you like the carrot bit?
Do you like the…….tuna bit?
Sit down please, come on!
Shall I strap you in?
Don’t put your fork in there, please.
So, what have you tried then Isabella?
I like the mackerel mummy
I don’t like mackerel
it’s not mackerel, it’s tuna
I don’t like tuna
how do you know? You haven’t had it for ages, could you please taste it.
I don’t want to!
Well, I bet you can’t eat any of it anyway……can she William? I bet she can’t she’s not brave enough.
oh yes she caaan!
oh no she can’t.
oh yes she caaan!
so you think if I cover my eyes Bella won’t eat any?
Yes, cover your eyes.
….keep them closed….
She won’t eat it will she William?
…just keep them closed, keep your eyes closed
You ate some TUNA, yeah! Now close your mouth to eat it up.
How is it?
You were a lot braver than I thought you were, wow!
I thought it might have mouses in, I don’t like mouses.
No, no mice in it.
My teacher doesn’t like mouses, she’s scared of them
Mummy, now you eat some of that, I’ll close my eyes
OK…….mmm, yum, yum. I ate it, yay!
Look it’s a big ice cream

Yes, we are eating dinner.
NO, I’m talking to the fork! Fork, would you like some dinner?…………..he wants dinner mummy, he wants to eat all of my dinner!
Ok, you can share it then.

Yes! That’s a point to Isabella, have you eaten some celery yet William?
…..INTERLUDE AS DADDY WALKS IN…..
…..AND THEN GOES BACK OUT AGAIN…..
Can I get down now?
No, you’ve barely eaten a thing.

Mummy close your eyes a minute
I’m hungry lovely, I want to eat my food

I was teasing you mummy.

Wind the bobin up, wind the bobin up, bonk donk, dink donk donk………
Endless, endless chatter! It went on and on! This was only about 10 minutes of our evening the rest continued on a similar note – far too wordy for my liking!
