From the Mouths of Tiddlers: “Ssshhh mummy!”

The tiddler’s speech is really coming on so fast now she’s 19 months. She’s now saying 2 or 3 word phrases, for example “yes please mummy”, “that one please” (usually whilst pointing to the biscuit jar), “some more”.

The other day my husband was tickled when he was changing her nappy and she pointed down to her girlie bits and asked “what dat daddy?”

I was tickled when I was doing bedtime last week and she was sat on my lap listening to a story. At the end I sang the Cbeebies bedtime tune “The time has come to say goodnight…” and she started saying “mummy, mummy, mummy” “yes Bella?” “Ssshhh mummy!” She had her finger to her lips!

I then tried reading a bedtime prayer from another book and again when I started singing (can’t remember which song this time) she started again “mummy, mummy, mummy, ssshhh!!” I guess she doesn’t like my singing then!! How rude!

Loving how her little cheeky personality is starting to show and she makes us laugh (and sometimes despair!) every day.

  1. Lol, cheeky girl – mine have told me to shush when singing too a few times! So lovely to see these cheeky little personalities emerge – thank you for sharing with #ftmob 🙂

    • She’s so funny. Yesterday I swear she mumbled “poor mummy” when daddy had a silly voice on and was trying to make her laugh. Lol
