My four-year-old daughter greets the day
I’m still asleep
I want to stay in my dream Mammy!!
He’s jumping on me!
My brother is jumping on my head and hurting me!
I won’t walk to the bathroom, someone will have to carry me
I’m going to lie on the floor until you bring me I’m going to cry now because I’m TIRED and I’m SAD
I’m thinking about why the steam from the shower sticks on the tiles but not the wall
I know the water comes from rain, I’m asking you how does it get into the taps
I need us to make a list of the things we will do today
I would like to open the curtains
I think it will be a beautiful day today.
Goodbye, nighttime stars and bats!
Hello, morning birds and sheep and cows and hills!
He’s closing the curtains!!
Make him stop closing the curtains!!
I don’t like the sleeves on that top, I won’t wear it
I know I liked that dress yesterday, but I don’t like it today
I don’t like those socks, the threads catch my toes
I will dress myself I can put this top on by myself
My top is stuck
Don’t help me!!
My top is the wrong way around. Don’t worry, I can turn it around.
Don’t help me!! I said I can do it myself!
Stop telling me to HURRY, this kind of thing takes a long time OK
I will wear a hat today
I’m cross about that there no hotels in space yet
I’m ready to go downstairs now
I need my toast cut into circles
I don’t want that kind of bread, thank you
I will put the butter on when it’s ready
That’s not my butter!
My sock is making me itchy
I would like my drink, I’m thirsty NOW
Not in that cup, no thank you
Yes in that cup please
I think we could go camping today
I don’t really like that cereal
Not in that bowl!! That’s his bowl not mine!!! Silly Mammy!
Mammy he took my spoon! MAMMY! That’s my favourite spoon and he has it!
He is hitting me with my own spoon now!
I can’t get off the floor, I’m sad about my spoon
I’m taking my socks off now
It’s not MY idea if he’s taking his socks off too!
I think we should go to Spain on a plane after breakfast.
I tweet my favourite sayings of my daughter at https://mobile.twitter.com/OffyMo

Ah thank you Franc! Though I can’t claim too much credit for this one. I just transcribed! 😁
Ah, that’s great…! Hang on, eh, wait…! how did this woman get into my house and listen to my boys in the morning?
My ears are ringing! That must be how! Thanks Aidan 😊
Just tried to read this out loud to my husband but ended up crying with laughter – sounds just like our four year old! Thank you!
Ha ha! I’m delighted you enjoyed it and it made you laugh! I’m also glad to hear you can identify with it, I love to know I’m not alone 😉
