Too much talk
May 19, 2013

toomuchtalkSon: Our teacher read us a story today and it was called Too Much Talk. The story happened in Africa and it went like this:

There was a farmer and he was going to dig up some yams.
And then the yams talked and then the dog talked, so he ran UPhill and DOWNhill and DOWNhill and UPhill, unti he came to a fisherman.
The fisherman said, “Why are you running in the heat of the day?”
“Well,” said the farmer, “first my yam talked, then my dog talked.”
“Oh,” said the fisherman, “that can’t happen!”
“Oh yes it can!” said the fish.
“Ahhhhh!” Screamed the fisherman and they ran UPhill and DOWNhill, DOWNhill and UPhill until they came to a weaver.
The weaver said, “Why are you running in the heat of the day?”
“Well,” said the farmer and the fisherman, “first the yam talked, then the dog talked, then the fish talked.”
“Oh,” said the weaver, “that can’t happen!”
“Oh yes it can!” said the cloth.
“Ahhhhh!” Screamed the weaver and they ran UPhill and DOWNhill, DOWNhill and UPhill until they came to a swimmer.
The swimmer said, “Why are you running in the heat of the day?”
“Well,” said the farmer and the fisherman and the weaver, “first the yam talked, then the dog talked, then the fish talked, then the cloth talked.”
“Oh,” said the swimmer, “that can’t happen!”
“Oh yes it can!” said the wave.
“Ahhhhh!” Screamed the swimmer and they ran UPhill and DOWNhill, DOWNhill and UPhill until they came to a chief.
The chief said, “Why are you running in the heat of the day?”
“Well,” said the farmer and the fisherman and the weaver and the swimmer, “first the yam talked, then the dog talked, then the fish talked, then the cloth talked and then the wave talked.”
“Oh,” said the chief, “well, too much talk – go away before I throw you all into jail!”
So they dashed off backed to their houses.
The chief sat in his chair and said, “imagine that! A talking yam, a talking dog, a talking fish, a talking cloth, a talking wave – that can’t happen!”
“Oh yes it can!” said the chair.
“Ayyyyyy!” Screamed the chief and he ran UPhill and DOWNhill, DOWNhill and UPhill and he was never seen again.

How funny is that – that the chair talked to him?!

Mum: That’s very well remembered.

Son: Can you think what was repeated over and over again in the story?

Mum: The hill.

Son: Good – yes. What else?

Mum: Talking?

Son: Good – yes. What else?

Mum: I don’t know.

Son: First!

Fairy Liaison Officer

fairyliaisonD: Mum. Did you know – you can’t be a fairy.

Me: Why can’t I?

D: Because you’re too big – you have to be smaller than me to be a fairy.

Me: Oh – that’s a shame. I wanted to be a fairy.

D: Well, you might be able to be one – you need to talk to Auntie Vicky. She knows them. She told me the stories from when she was a little kid:
One day, Auntie Vicky didn’t know where the gravestone was – with her friend – every single day, so she wrote a letter to the fairies and the dog took the letter to the fairies and the fairies got the lawn mower out and mowed the grass and so Auntie Vicky and her friend followed the path and went straight to the grave – it was a really small grave. And you know how grass takes an extraORDINARILY long time to grow?

Me: Yes.

D: Well, the next day, it had all grown back – straight away!
Also, when she was little, she really wanted her toys to come to life, so she drawed hearts, coloured them in, and cut them out and put them in her toys. And in the middle of the night, when she was still a kid, she woke up, creeped down the stairs without her mother noticing, and all the toys had come to life, they could speak, they could move about – and she realized, it must have been the fairies that did this!
So, that’s why you have to ask Auntie Vicky about being a fairy.
So mum, one day, can I put paper hearts in all my toys?

Pet dog – Nov 2012

D: It’s my pet dog – not a Pillow Pet – just a pet. Amy the adult at Vikki’s drew the face and I drew the rest of it. They’re patches on it’s body.

Me: Is it lying down or running?

D: It’s standing up – with its legs.

Falling out

fallingout[Driving home on the motorway]

Me: Can you do the window back up please – it’s cold! Why have you rolled it down?

D: I was bored of sitting here. I wanted to put my head out of the window and stick my tongue out like Scooby Doo does.

Me: I’d rather you didn’t – you might fall out.

Bottle Feeding Baby – Nov 2012

D: It’s a baby cat holding its bottle.
Me: Why have you written “woof”?
D: Oh. I got something wrong – the pointy up ears, four legs and no arms. I meant to draw a baby human…

Dog talk
November 19, 2012

D: There was something really funny that I saw in an advert. There was this trick – it was number 21. It was something that you put on the floor and then a mummy came along and saw it and told the dog off because it was a pretend poo! How funny is that? Because the dog didn’t know what she said and he just looked at her like, “Huh?’!
