Wot So FuneeAs most of you know by now, I am a loquacious girl. I even know what that means. Basically, I talk a lot, and now I know how to read, I also write a lot. I write notes to my Mummy, notices for my door, cards for my friends, and sometimes lists.

Now very often when I have written such a masterpiece, M&D take one look and burst out laughing. Very rude in my opinion. The same happens to the Bug. Being younger than me he can’t write, but sometimes he says very clever things. What do M&D do? Burst out laughing. Then they tell their friends and they all have a good laugh. I don’t get it. What exactly is so funny?

Take this as an example. Ok so my spelling wasn’t the best when I was 5, but the meaning is clear. Daddy knew exactly what I wanted to buy Mummy for her birthday, and we got it all! Job done. I even took the time to colour-coordinate my words – I’ve never seen a grown-up work this hard on a list. So I would have thought a gold star was in order!

Every Tuesday I will post an example of our work, and you can see for yourselves how smart we are. I will put a linky tool in each post so that you can link up similar examples of brilliance from your children. It can be a photo of their calligraphy, a typed version of something they have written, or simply a genius utterance from your clever toddler. I will stare Mummy down and defy her to laugh at them.

Rules are simple:

  1. Write a post about your children’s linguistic accomplishments that week
  2. Include a link to the Wot So Funee? post or page so that your readers can have a laugh at everyone else
  3. Come back to Actually Mummy on Tuesday and link your post to that week’s Wot So Funee? write-up
  4. And if you are feeling generous please do steal the code for my badge and display it in your post or sidebar

    Cracking idea! Only wish I could use a pen! Or talk. I’ll be sure to check out all the entries. And I might borrow some of my cousins’ words of wisdom to submit until I’m bigger.

  3. Oh there is so much material to choose from! Great idea!

  4. Love it – will join in when my wee one is big enough. Unfortunately at the moment she just says ‘doy doy doy doy’ and occasionally ‘pa pa ba pa ba pa’!

    That’s so cute! I have kept some of the “notes” my daughter has written – I figure I’ll give them to her as a 21st birthday present so she can see how far she’s come (and have a laugh too)! Great idea. xo

    Oh my, that’s funny. Perthroom. Excellent.

    My little one is too small to talk (14 mo). His only words are mama, dada and car. (Lord help us.)

    Isn’t it funny how you teach the children to talk – then spend much of the rest of their childhood saying SHHHHHH!
    My post this week is all about things I would rather my children had not said – specifically from a table top at school thereby busting the whole Sex Ed business wide open!
    A good week here!

    This is so lovely! Reminds me of my time teaching Reception. Love the ‘Perthroom’! x

  42. Jenny says:

    Love love this idea. Kids are so clever and entertaining when they are learning to speak. I do a Phrase Day Friday about my tots funny new sayings. It’s not a linky just doing it each week because we are at the stage where the funny things are flying out daily. I hope this still is ok to link up. If not just tell me. When he is able to write definitely post those as a link up with you as well. Great linky!!!!!
