Today Big Sis got invited to a kids’ event I just know she’s going to go crazy for. I decided to keep it a surprise, but wanted to build the anticipation. 

This is how the conversation went… 

‘In a couple of weeks, you and I are going somewhere very special!’
‘Where is it?’
‘I can’t tell you; it’s a surprise.’
‘Is it Peppa Pig?’
‘Just whisper it in my ear.’
‘I can’t! It’s a surprise!’

* mulls it over for a moment * 

‘Will it have food and drink?’
‘And a toilet?’ 
‘Ermmmm… yeeeees…’

    There’s no accounting for how their minds work, is there?!

    Genius child. Food and toilets are absolutely vital to a good experience!

    It’s all about priorities. I love that Big Sis has got her’s in the right order.

    Brilliant, it’s nice that’s she’s so easily amused. She must be a very cheap date 🙂

    Toilets must be the most facinating places to children, mine seem to have to visit every single toilet in the world.

    You’ve clearly groomed her expectations!

    I love it! 🙂

    That’s hilarious. I’m glad someone else gets excited about Peppa Pig. POD is obsessed!

    Unfathomable, definitely! 🙂

  10. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    …as anyone who’s had to use a Portaloo can testify too! 😉

  11. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    Peppa Pig, food, and the loo – in that order. What more could you want from life?? 😉

  12. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    Kids. They never do what you expect, do they? What’s the bet we get to the ACTUAL event, and she’s completely underwhelmed… 😉

  13. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    What IS that all about?!? x

  14. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    Haha! Rumbled! 😉

  15. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    Kids always seem to hit you a swerve ball, don’t they?? x

  16. mummyslittlemonkey - February 10, 2013

    Lil Sis loves it as well, so PP is pretty much on continuous loop *rolls eyes*. x

    Nothing clever to say – I’m still giggling xxx

    I’m still shaking my head over the whole situation!!! #Baffled 😉
