Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me

Tag, I'm it!  Actually Mummy has tagged me because she "knows I'm up for it!" How exciting!  She's right!

So, as with AM and her post, I tell you all pretty much everything anyway, so I'm having to think quite hard about secrets.  I'm a few years behind the rest of you on life experience!

  1. I once let Hairy Dog take the blame for a big stain on my bedroom carpet.  Mummy and I told Daddy that HD had been sick, but in fact I'd had a nappy-free whoopsie!  I hold Mummy entirely responsible for assuming that the three nappies of that persuasion she'd already dealt with that day would be the end of it.
  1. Leading on from number one, I am a firm believer that nappies are for losers.  I don't like the restricted feeling and the bulk hinders my dancing.
  1. I am an accomplished oarsman. I know all the verses to "Row, row, row your boat," even the new-fangled modern ones that weren't around when Mummy learnt to row.  I've been rowing since I was about eight months old and I wowed them at nursery with my enthusiasm and vigour.
  1. I am very keen on tractors at the moment.  What's not to love?  I'm turning into a proper country bumpkin!  Just call me Chatty "Massey Ferguson" Baby.
  1. Avocado is the food of the Devil.
  1. Daddy has passed on many of his facial expressions to me, in particular his mono-brow frown.  Mummy doesn't know whether to laugh or cry when she sees it in stereo!
  1. On a similar note, I am very like Mummy when I can't do something my brain thinks I should be able to but my body won't allow.  She's calmed the drama down a bit these days but I still like to holler and throw things and complain vociferously that I'll never be able to do it.
  1. I nearly knocked Daddy out once.  We were playing quite nicely but he was getting a bit complacent so lay down on the floor.  I picked up my xylophone and brought it crashing down on his head.  It was the first time I'd seen blood - very cool!  Only till I realised that I'd really hurt him and he was seeing stars, then I wailed.
  1. Sleep is for the weak.  I get that "people" still think I should be napping at least twice a day, that's no secret.  So, I have perfected a power nap of approximately 10 minutes now that I try and pass off as a decent rest.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Must try harder.
  1. When I grow up, I want to design and test prams, buggies, travel systems and anything else like that with wheels and moving parts.  I am fascinated by the engineering and sleek craftsmanship of today's pushchair.  If you don't want me playing with yours, put the brake on.  Without it, I can't promise I won't wheel it away.
So there you have it!  Now I'm tagging:

What you need to next is write your own list, (leave me a link in the comments so I can keep up with the answers) and then leave a link with Me and my Kiddywinks who started it all.



  1. Hi CB, I love your list. Thank you for tagging me, hi ho hi off it's off to do my list I go!! Will leave you a link as soon as I'm done!! xx

  2. Hi CB. I had fun doing my list. Have a lil look,


  3. Great stuff, White Lily Mummy, thanks for joining in :)

  4. Thanks so much for tagging me here's my 10 things

  5. Hi CB. Loved your list. I remember once on holiday clipping the straps on everyone's buggies whilst M&D ate. Much post-prandial confusion! I'm with you on the buggies - perhaps we could go into business.

  6. Thanks Toddlingintomadness - great list!

  7. Thanks, Actually Mummy - what a great idea! So much fun to be had with the straps! A business partner at my age - who'd have thought? ;-)

  8. great list Chatty baby, but yous shouldn't let Hairy Dog take the blame for things ;) xx

  9. Thanks Sarah. I know, but it just seemed like the easiest option at time. I was a bit embarrassed, and Daddy didn't question it!


Go on, leave me a comment - they make my day.
