Chicken Noup For The Soul

No, it's not a spelling mistake.  'Noup' is how Mini Cheddar says 'soup' and it's the cutest thing so it seemed a good post title. Most words beginning with 'S' she says with an 'N'. So sometimes she has a tasty 'nack' before she gets tired and has a 'neep'.  You get the idea?

Butter wouldn't melt
Now, before I start with this story I have to say this is NOT one of those 'smug mummy posts'.  I've left all that crap behind on a baby forum where a few mothers would spend most of their days harping on about how "Little Johnnie does this" and "Little Johnnie does that" and how "the Health Visitor has said just how advanced he is".  Meanwhile you're left looking at your child and willing them to do the same as the amazing Little Johnnie so you can sleep again at night.  Most of the time I'd feel like replying to their posts saying "Well, my daughter can flick the bird already (she can't really, obviously) and right now she's flicking it at you and little Johnnie so just shut up!"

The reason for this post is simply to say, as cute as my daughters speech is, sometimes it can be very embarrassing...

Take last Thursday for instance...I had to take Mini Cheddar to the doctors as her coughing at night hadn't improved.  I got to the surgery with 10 minutes to spare.  The doctor was running late.  Brilliant.  Let the toddler entertaining commence!

50 minutes later we are still sat in the waiting room. Mini Cheddar starts to get very bored and is running out of things to do and to play with.  So I sit her on my lap facing me and she seems to delight in pulling the zip of my top up and down slightly at the top saying "Up" and "Down".  I have my hand on my chest so she can't zip it all the way down as I wasn't wearing another top underneath.  In my rush to get dressed to get to the doctors I'd just thrown my bra and zip up top on (usually I wear a vest top underneath).  Yes, I know it's my own fault!

So, this happy game continues for 5 minutes.  Then my husband texts me.  I lose concentration and grab my phone from my bag.  Next thing, my top is unzipped revealing my breasts to the doctors waiting room.  I probably would have gotten away with it easily if my darling daughter hadn't shouted

"HELLO BOOBIES"

I guess at least I'm thankful I was wearing a decent bra.

I am sat here laughing very loudly and Miss E is wondering what is wrong with me. You probably made all those poorly old mens days!

Hot Cross Mum said...

Love this! I love 'noup' - we have loads of mispronounced words which I just don't have the heart to correct - 'Cheesus' being my favourite (as in The Baby Cheesus). Thank god you were wearing a decent bra!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Awww, brilliant post! 50 minutes in the waiting room? I'd have been a bit annoyed about that!!

(Joke: what do you call a bee that wears a bra?......A Boobee). Sorry, just had to..

Oh my goodness I am cringing for you but at the same time laughing my head off!
This is so so so funny. Hello Boobies!

My second favourite part in this post:
"Most of the time I'd feel like replying to their posts saying "Well, my daughter can flick the bird already (she can't really, obviously) and right now she's flicking it at you and little Johnnie so just shut up!"

Brilliant post.

Mummy and the Beastie said...

I agree it must have brightened up the surgery and maybe got the receptionist to smile? They sure never seem to! love 'Hello boobies' he he xx

Liska said...

Excellent stuff. So funny. And like any good writer... I did not see that coming until the last 2 paragraphs...
The adorable photo was a good distraction before the punchline.
All set for the party? x

I love the word Boobies! Why are kids so absolutely fascinated by them?

Thanks for contributing to the BMB Carnival.

Magic. Boobies is just a brilliant word when said by small children. Never forget my, now 15 year old, niece on a bus with my sister and I when she started staring intently at my sister's mouth. You just knew something was coming. 'Why do you have a moustache Mummy?' Ah, kids.
