(Two posts in two days! I know! But I had to share this!)
Connor isn’t much of a talker (yet?). His vocabulary mainly consists of “mum” and “dad” (and variations of both), “Nanna”, “nana” (banana) and “teddy” (pronounced ted-deeeeeeeeee). And of course, “no” (nao!). And the rest is pointing and grunting and the happy noise when I correctly guess whatever it is that he wants.
Yesterday, we went outside to get the clothes off the line. Well, that was my plan anyway. Connor decided he didn’t want to do that, and with the handful of cars he had (yes, he carries his cars with him everywhere) he stood near the outside table and kept saying “NingNing, NingNing”. I didn’t quite get what he wanted, because I was trying to convince him to climb up the stairs with me to the backyard and clothesline.
So he put his cars on the table and ran inside and climbed onto my lounge chair and looked over the side to where I keep my knitting (out of his reach). And then it clicked – NingNing! Knitting! He wanted me to get my knitting and sit with him at the table outside!
Could I be a prouder knitter/mother?!
So the washing didn’t get taken off the line (until later, thanks Husby) but we had a pleasant half hour sitting at the table, me knitting, him driving his cars back and forth. I cannot think of a better way to pass the time!
