Conversations with a 3 year old: Mummy or Woman?

Fri 4 Nov 16 | Just for Fun | 3 comments

One of the reasons I first started blogging was as a way to remember those magic parenting moments that will escape forever if I don’t write them down. The funny stuff, amazing things and even the tough bits.

I thought I’d start a weekly series of the things my little boy has said that has made me chuckle. I don’t want to forget how comedy he is right now, and also how interested he is in understanding everything around him.

This week’s highlight…

I was leaving the house, in skinny jeans and my recently dug out of the wardrobe winter boots, with no baby gear as Mr MM was all over it and had already packed the car (ex-military, what can I say).

M was outside waiting by the gate.

M: “Mummy. You look like a woman.”

Me: “Erm, that’s because I am.”

M: “But you’re a Mummy.”

Me: “Yes, but all Mummies are women. I am a woman and I’m your Mummy.”

M: “No, you’re not. You’re just my Mummy!”

Me: “Did you say i looked like a woman because wasn’t carrying Little P, or the change bag, or wearing my normal old jeans and trainers sweetie?”

M: “No, because womans are old.”

Me: “Are you saying I look old today?”

M: “Yes.” Pause. “Mummy are you 12?”

Love him. After my recent birthday moan, I still haven’t looked into that eye cream though… No excuse now!

Who is Media Mummy?

I’m Kimberly, a London/Surrey based juggler of many balls including a TV career, motherhood & this blog malarky. Quite a lot of people follow me apparently, although about 65 million others in the UK don’t. But hey – sometimes the cool crowd is small…
