My daughter, Ember, was born on 10 August 2008 and since she started talking, at about 15 months, she has proven herself to be a bit of a thinker. Some of the things she comes out with are absolute gems and this blog is a way to keep track of them. The title of this blog comes from a day when, wearily, I asked Ember "What do you think is the meaning of life Em?" She thought for a moment then confidently replied "Toddlers." I'm tending to agree!

Squiggle bum

Ember decided she needed to sit on me this evening. Like most five-year-olds she can't sit still for more than 2 seconds so she was quickly squiggling around all over the place. She must have hit an awkward angle or something because she suddenly said:

Em: ouch! Ow!
Me: What?
Em: Keep your hurtings to yourself!
Me: I'm not moving; you're the one squiggling around on my lap.
Em: Well move your lap! Ow!
