Gee, I've had some cranky moments lately. Mostly it's because I go to help myself in the cupboard and Mum stops me, or because Oskar is being mean. I came up with a great line to Oskar yesterday when he was annoying me: I went stomping up to him and said, 'Okkar, you die an' sick!' Everyone stopped what they were doing and stared at me, so I repeated it again and then finished him off with, 'Exterminek!' and waved my dalek hand. Oskar ran off to his room howling, so my work there was done.
Aside from my annoying brother, things have been pretty good. One of my favourite times is just before Mum tucks me in to bed. I insist on lots of hugs: 'Mummy, huggy, hug', and I snuggle my head into her neck. Then I tell her what song to sing, since I'm very into singing at the moment. I get her to sing 'Twinkle Star', then 'Rocka Baby', and then 'the cat one', which finishes off with something about a dish running away with a spoon. Each time Mum finishes the song I ask, 'why?' She never has a good answer.
Once Mum has laid me down in bed and tucked the covers over me I sit up and say, 'Mummy, hug', and throw all the covers off myself and reach up for her. I always wait until she's got the covers tucked in to get up again. She generally huffs a bit, but always gives me another hug before I settle down for the night. I do like this routine!
