We have been a little bit funee this week, but we’re storing them up for afuture bumper post. For now we’re going with the posts sent in by our lovely readers. I’m delighted today to introduce the lovely Jenny from Let’s Talk Mommy. Mummy likes her because she calls her “the amazing Helen” (she’s practically preening herself ); I like her because she has the blondest hair imaginable, and writes a chortle-worthy post every Friday. Over to Jenny:
I have been asked by the amazing Helen to guest post for Wots So Funee? this week. My toddler is constantly coming out with one liners, and funny phrases these days, I am full of things to share but this week, I am stretching out to a conversation I had with my adorable little nephew.
From the moment Mason was born I was in awe of him. I have a huge family, with fourteen nieces and nephews but we are all spread out in the states. Mason was the only one I lived near and felt truly close to since I was there from the very beginning. He was born long before I had my own kids, so I was the dutiful aunt and spoiled him rotten.
I was so sad to say goodbye to him when I moved to England. He was only four years old, and I worried he wouldn’t remember me. He is the funniest boy you have ever met, full of life and laughter. I can always count on him to say something that will have us all roaring with laughter.
Here is one of the first conversations I had with him over the phone, after the big move. It’s one I will never, ever forget.
Me: “What you doing?”
Him: “Watchin’ Toy Story Aunty.”
Me: “You are, that sounds like fun.”
Him: “Want to come watch it with me?”
Me: “Oh sweetie, I would love to but Aunty moved to England remember?”
Him: “Where’s that?”
Me: “Its across the ocean.”
Him: “Then swim here.”
Me: “That would be a long swim.”
Him: “Then fly.”
Me: “I wish I could but it still would take me a very long time to get there, I think the movie would be over.”
Him: “Flap your wings harder, you will go faster Aunty.”
If only it was that easy to spend quality time with my nephew again or any of my friends and family. I have never laughed so hard in my life. It was the first encounter I had with the funny things toddlers say as I didn’t have my own children yet. I cherish the funny conversations my nephew and I have had over the phone. He is much older now, chatting on the phone isn’t as cool but conversations like these will forever stay with me. I love how literal toddlers can be, to him, swimming or flapping my wings harder would get me there, why couldn’t I see this? 🙂
