Five year olds are very cute when trying to use the English language. I could listen to Nathaniel for hours as he spouts forth! It amuses Lauren (she's seven but very eloquent) too and the two of us sit with him and giggle - he doesn't mind.

This morning he was painting, in one of those special clean and safe painting books that I like so much, where he just has to brush water over the picture and colour appears (a great invention).

I asked him what he was painting and he replied " a HORSICORN mummy!". Sure enough there on the page was a horse/unicorn cross! Logical?

One of his first phrases was "YUM DUM DAMMER" when somethings great. That caught on in our house and we now use it all the time. Top saying!
