I cannot even begin to tell you how much Chick makes me giggle either intentionally or not. Last week she came home from Brownies and we had the following conversation:
Chick: Mum, mum, mum, the Brownies are going on camp to Switzerland, can I go?
Me: Switzerland???? Erm.......I'm really not sure about you leaving the Country without me baby! When is it?
Chick: Please, please, please, Mum!
Me: When is it? How much does it cost?
Chick: It's in a few weeks and costs £40! Please say yes....
Me: Switzerland and it costs £40????????
Chick: Yes, please can I go?
Me: Go get me the letter and let me read it........If you are right then I'm sorry hunny but you are not going to Switzerland without me! (whilst heart my is sinking about letting her down)
Chick: Here you go.
Me: *Reads letter*
Me: Hahahahahahahaha........Chick, the camp is in Swithland (about 10 miles from where we live!!!) Yes, baby you can go to Brownie camp!!!!
Chick: Bounces around living room......................until commanded to stop!!!!!!!!!!!
The moral of the story......make sure your 8 year old knows the facts or not and then giggle a lot ;-) Lol!!!
