The Toddlers Revolt!

What our Mumma’s Say…

I wonder if it’s just our babies and toddlers who seem to think these things…

  • Mummy won’t let me store my toys (or the house keys) in the washing machine and try make all the lights come on by pressing buttons
  • Mummy won’t let me play with the blender. Or whisk.
  • Mummy won’t let me eat dirt in the garden.


  • Mummy won’t let me climb on top of the sofa.
  • Mummy won’t let me pull the green strawberries off the plants, only RED ones.
  • Mummy says I can’t draw on the walls, I showed her I CAN!
  • Mummy says I have to hold on tight when I’m on the swing or riding a donkey
  • Mummy won’t let me eat all the banana muffins she just made, all at once.

  • Mummy was happy that I helped and carried my melon round the supermarket, then shouted when I threw it to show her it wasn’t a bouncy melon.
  • Mummy put some shopping bags aside so I could unpack but didn’t like me helping myself to any bags. I tried to help with ‘Mummys special’ shopping bags but these eggs weren’t even packed properly…

  • Mummy gets embarrassed by my learning to shout, especially when I’ve shouted at the top of my voice ‘hello lady’ at the MAN serving us at the checkout about 50 times when he gives in and says hello back.
  • Mummy wont let me walk down the stairs on my own.
  • Mummy wont let me play out in the street now I can reach the front door handle.

Mummy then says she loves me so so much, as if that makes up for the above!! 😉
