Don't whinge to the whinger!

The other day I was berating daughter for her incessant whinging.

Daughter: You whinge too!

Me: No, I don't

Daughter: Yes, you do, you whinge about my whinging

Me: Touche

Oh, she got you good there.

That'll be our next stop in the "ages and stages" game I suppose.

All that effort trying to get mine to speak in two languages and now I have to listen to him whinge in both of them.

There is something about Italian that really gives him scope to draw out the whine in a particularly irritating manner.

Brilliant.

This evening I was in the kitchen and Devin was in the living room. He shouted through to me but I didn't hear him. Husband was in the kitchen with me and his response was to shout "Mummy can't hear you Devin, she's in the kitchen". Go figure.

I hate it when I fall into traps like this myself! This made me laugh knowingly.

private boarding school - is this a new marketing ploy? (Leaving a comment on a middle class mummy blog and your link goes straight to your school prospectus) Very clever; must mention it to my school's marketing department!
