Two Things

Friday, December 14, 2012

Dear Olive,
THING ONE. You've learnt how to lie. Consistently. Which is in equal parts hilarious and terrifying. To hear you, wide eyed, assure me that Shane said you could have a big serve of ice-cream (when I heard him say you could have a small one!) is a sight to behold.
THING TWO. Zillions is your word of the moment. And you use it in all sorts of hilariously inappropriate ways. I'm a monster and I'm zillions of scary. Is it a long drive to Coffs? Yes. Is it zillions? I love you zillions, Dad. It's, well, it's zillions of cute is what it is. 
(As I am still without a camera, I'm having to resort to using old photos. Filthy mirror and all.)

Kaizer has not learnt the art of lying yet..he's far too honest for his own good sometimes.

She's a clever one learning to lie and be convincing with it and to use the word zillions. Such a cute little tiger, dirty mirror or not (it's impossible to keep glass clean with kids- I've given up :)) x

Oh I love that she is saying zillions! Olive, you make me laugh!

Mariana said...

Cute!! So cute.
It seems that lying comes with the age of three. My little guy has learnt that, too. And as someone have already written, it's hard sometime not to smile. Pssst!

Nell said...

I wish Olive could be Josephine's little buddy...she'd teach her some hilarious things ;) x

Francesca said...

much to isi's chagrin, i can tell immediately when he's lying. it's a certain look in his eye. poor boy. hope that skill lasts into his teens! x

Zillions times better than any other milestones to date. The super liar stage terrifies and intrigues me, is it bad that I am excited to have one in my home? Xx

Nicole said...

Zillions...what a great word! Skyes fave word at the moment is a made up one for the past: yesterweek (instead of last week). Pretty cute. Makes me smile every time she says it. We often say yesterweek now too.

PS. Lying is a sign of intelligence ;)
