Hairy Maclary and Spoon make me laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

One of my favourite bloggers wrote such a funny post about the corkers her 4-year-old has been spouting lately. It got me thinking about some of Ivys recent gags.

1. While playing silly-bananas with her and Ted, I pretended to make my leg ring. Ivy rang her own leg, paused, then picked up her foot like a phone. 'Hello?' she said, then put it down. 'There's nobody there, Mum!'

2. Yesterday we had a wardrobe battle (Ivy wanted to wear her Thomas singlet to the Montessori enrolment, and I tried to explain that we didn't want to give full and frank expression of ourselves at this early stage.) 'But Mama!' she shouted. 'I has to keep my LUNGS WARM!'

3. The hysterical meltdown she had after falling off a chair - I was near to calling the ambulance and trying to decipher the gasping sentence she kept repeating as I soothed 'Poor Ivy, oh honey, poor Ivy.' Finally I made sense of it. 'Poor Hairy Maclary!' she was sobbing. 'Poor HAIRY MACLARY!'

4. The whole day she spent calling Teddy 'Spoon' after one game of Hey Diddle Diddle.

5. The conversation we had on the toilet. 'Those are not poos, Mummy, they are ducks. And the mother duck is my vagina. And she is sad that they have all gone away.'

Here she is this morning, just hanging out on the little couch with Spoon.

    This. Is gold. I laughed and dribbled coffee down my cream shirt at work. So obviously, even when I am not parenting today, it is not my lot to be tidy, groomed and well presented.

  5. Laughing, laughing, laughing. Ivy you are the funniest cat in the world. I love the Mummy Duck. Ivy has had my sister and I (on the phone) in stitches. SO ridiculously cute.

  6. Agh yes, I see my sister has reported the fits of laughter we've had over the phone as she read me Ivy's comments. And just like Georgie Love, I too was dribbling - through so much laughter at the Mother Duck story. You got to love that weird, mixed up crazy cuteness that comes out of their mouths. Such pearlers!
