"Do you know that guy mum ?"
"The actor from the movie ?"
"Yes, him, I think I'm going to look just like him when I grow up."
"Really ? Just like Zac Efron ? That would be impressive." (And as about as likely as you turning into a werewolf when there's a full moon, but dream big little man)
"Yes and I'm going to sing just like him. I'm a really good singer."
"Are you ?"
*High pitched squeals*
"I'm a really good singer too, see ?"
"Umm yes, but you will probably be better without a mouthful of minestrone."
"Mum, I want to grow my hair long and let it hang over one eye. That would be cool."
"Ooooooh that's stuuuuuuupid, you won't be able to see, will he mama ? That's so dumb."
"Am not, you're dumber."
"Muuuum, she just called me dumber and I could so see, out of my other eye, see."
*demonstrates by covering one eye and enthusiastically rolling the other eye*
*Roar of laughter* (that's Petal) "You're a pirate," *hic**hic**hic* "mama *hic* I've got the *hic* hiccups *hic*"
"Yes I can see that sweetheart, try not to choke on a butterbean,"
*snort* *guffaw* (that's Le Artiste) *fine spray of minestrone across the dining table*
*hic* *giggle* *sigh*
Just your average night around the dinner table at Casa Del Waffler, we've a few spare seats if you would like to join us one evening, it's a riot, just ask the children.
