WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT

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?’
‘No.’
‘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?’
‘Yes.’
‘And a toilet?’ 
‘Ermmmm… yeeeees…’
‘YAY! WE’RE GOING TO EAT SOME FOOD, AND GO TO THE TOILET!’ 

Weirdo.

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

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

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

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

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

  6. You’ve clearly groomed her expectations!

    I love it! 🙂

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

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

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

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

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

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