As you may have gathered from the lack of further reverb10 posts, the one decent prompt I last mentioned was a blip and I have now let go of the idea of maybe going back to it. However, without reverb10, my blog suddenly feels adrift, lacking in direction and purpose. A friend and I are cooking some ideas to create our own writing prompt blog, but in the meantime, this lack of purpose post-reverb10 disturbs me. In an attempt to remedy the situation, I thought I'd share some anecdotes with you, on the joys of life with a toddler...
The other day, I was in the toilet and Jake followed me in. I never get to go to the toilet without being watched anymore. Jake asked me, "Mummy are you doing poo?" I said, "Not poo darling, wee."
A few moments later he said, "Mummy, are you finished doing not poo?"
Yesterday, once the blizzard had subsided, we went out in the snow and built snowmen and had a snowball fight. When I was hit by a particularly big one, I inadvertently did a little wee in my pants at the moment of impact. Naturally I felt the need to share this information with Paul and whispered it to him (not very quietly obviously). Just as a couple of strangers were walking past, Jake piped up, "Mummy do wee wee in pants?" enunciating each word perfectly. That'll teach me.
