Blame the penguin

Now that Sam is doing four full days a week at school, it's more important than ever to make the most of his days off. He stayed with me this weekend rather than going to his dad's, so on Saturday we had a trip to Peterborough with my friend Lilly, and then on Sunday we had a relaxed day - carvery lunch with my grandparents followed by a trip to the park.

Today we've had a lovely day blowing away a few cobwebs at Gibraltar Point with Nanny and Grandad. We had a great refreshing walk, then into the cafe for a yummy lunch. Great to feel we've done something with the day, and after that fresh sea air Sam should sleep well ready for school tomorrow.

After our lunch we headed back to Nanny and Grandad's house, where we chilled out for a while and Sam read some books. Cue hilarious moment of the day.  Sam, standing next to his toy box, passed wind. As per usual, we responded 'Pardon you, Sam' but he took us by surprise with his claim
'It came from the box'!!
No Sam, it was you....
'The box - it was penguin.'
'It was peeenguin'

Nanny and I were in absolute hysterics, my chest actually hurt. He never normally expresses an awareness of bodily functions, never mind to blame it on his toy - and to stick determindly to the story!

  1. Ha ha I knew you'd blog about it, he was so adamant, so funny, I still crease up thinking about it! Poor penguin I say!! Lovely day with you both, hope you sleep well after all that fresh air xxx

    What a lovely moment, both funny and a land mark of his developing awareness!
