On busy mornings when you’re calling out for the children to get ready:
Me: J1, it’s time to get ready for school. I can’t be reminding you anymore because I’ve got ironing to do. So then you can change into your pyjamas
Me: Boys, play with the ball outside the room. I’m ironing the clothes now and you know, the oven is hot.
J2: HOT! HOT! BURN!!!
Me: Erm yes. I think I was supposed to say ‘the iron’, not ‘the oven’. (Good try, J2!)
Round 3: over lunch
J2: No planes today.
Me: Yes, I think they’ve stopped flying for awhile. The pirates (oops, supposed to be Pilots) are having their lunch too, I think.
Me: 😬😬😬😬😬 What did I just say?!
