If you know me well enough, you would know that each time I refer to the “Munchkin” I am talking about the little 2ft, 4-year-old individual in my house who I am answerable to. He is the ultimate ball of energy, chief negotiator, dodo warrior, commander in chief of the house and one of the greatest geniuses of our time…. none other than my little boy.


One of the best things in the world is getting home to his running patter of feet just to wrap his arms around my legs in a hearty welcome, if you are a parent, you should know that nothing beats that feeling. The excitement is just crazy; he practically goes into an excited frenzy to welcome either his Dad or myself………that’s the best part of my day……like totally AWEMAZING.


Then we settle down to talk about his day, conversation around what he did at school, if he finished his food, if he had been good or naughty, if he pooped and if the poop was big one or little one.........yeah really gross, disgusting interesting conversations between us.


Well, I got home a few days ago to his wonderful welcome before I stepped into the mayhem of chaos that he had succeeded in turning the house to with his toys.

Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were somewhere over the TV, next his set of “Cars” characters were all over the floor ready for the unsuspecting victim to either trip over or slide on. Next were his other racing cars, trucks, train and yet more cars (He loves anything with wheels and speed)

I took in the sight then looked into his brown twinkling excited eyes

“Well done” I started, “you have made a good mess in the house as usual but now we have to put away your toys”.

He looks at all the toys, gives me a look, cocks his head to one side and with all the seriousness and understanding a 4-year-old could muster responded back……” I don’t think that is a good idea Mummy”

My ears practically stood like that of a dog as my eyes widened in between astonishment, shock and amusement……


“Oh really” …… I chorused “Since when did you start giving ideas”

“But mummy, it takes a long time to get them out of the bag…. that's why…. that's why I put them all out so I can get them easily when I want them like this…he motions to demonstrate picking up “Lightning Mcqueen”
