Not a monkey

Babess and I ran some errands this morning, and got home about 11am.  She was very tired, and I told her it was nap-time.  “No!  I monkey!” she said.

“Yes, you’re a tired monkey,” I said.  “Now come and get a clean nappy.”

“I monkey!” she insisted, as I changed her.

“You’re a cute monkey!  But it’s time for bed,” I said.

She grimaced in frustration, the tears springing to her eyes.  “I MONKEY!” she wept.  It dawned on me (I’m a bit slow).

“Oh… you’re hungry?”


I fed her an early lunch, and she was much happier.  “Time for a nap now,” I said when she was done.  “No, Babess play with baby”, she said.

“No, nap time now!” I said.

She clamped her arms down at her sides to make it hard for me to get her out of her highchair and came out with another new sentence.

“I grumpy!”

    ‘I monkey’

    my girls have graduated to saying “I have cranky face” and “Don’t make me get my cranky face out”… I think I must say it fairly often.
