It was Saturday night when it happened. It had been a bit of a dull day with nothing at all remarkable occurring. Because we'd been to the supermarket Mr Husband had bought doughnuts and had promised our tinkers that they could have one, as a treat, if they ate their teas nicely.
Biscuit was taking HOURS as usual, but Wiggles had powered through, scoffing up her peas with a spoon and nomming down great shovelfuls of potato.
She finished and I stood up to cut her a doughnut in half for her treat. Not entirely sure she would appreciate it, or even like it (I hate doughnuts) I asked her "Do you want some of this, darling?" And I showed her the sugary cake over her sisters head.
And then she said it. Three words. Three. Little words. All in a row, nay, in a SENTENCE! Perfectly constructed, succinct and to the point. She bellowed back at me "Yesh peease Mama!"
Her first unprompted sentence! And with a "please" in it! I was so proud I nearly gave her the whole doughnut. But I didn't. I just gave her lots and lots of kisses for being so clever. My little girl does sentences now, whooooo yeah! Magic that!
