Coco was staying up later than usual whilst I was rearranging a room, one evening. I glanced over at him and his face was a little picture of mischief..I looked away before he caught my eye.
“Can I put the TV on please?” He cocked his head to one side, just the way I do
“Ok, here’s the remote”
I turned away and carried on with what I was doing when he said…
“Mum how do you do it?”
His tiny fingers fumbled the remote, overly complicated for his motor skills (unlike the Ipad!).
I said “press the red button and point to the TV” as I carried on moving and shifting things.
“It’s not working mama“
As his voice hit that moany note and I wondered why I hadn’t put him to bed yet and got some peace, I turn around to face him…
And there he was standing with the remote down in his right hand and pointing to the TV with his left!!
I burst out laughing! He wasn’t so amused…
Kids do the funniest things!
