Ollie: (to Max) Now Max. You get what you get and you don't get upset about it.
Me: Ollie, don't be so rude!
Ollie: But mum, you're rude sometimes too.
Me: (very frustrated) Oh Max, good LORD!
Max: Mummy, no don't say good lord... say BAD lord!
Ollie: (after he was back from looking at the neighbourhood Christmas lights with his dad) Mum, I had a lovely time light spotting around the neighbourhood
Me: That's great, I wish I could have gone with you.
Ollie: When we were walking around, quite a strange feeling came over me.
Me: Really? What sort of feeling?
Ollie: (speaking very slowly and quietly) It happened when I saw a teeny tiny creature crawl out of a hole and land in the middle of the pavement!
Ollie: (after we gave him a peanut m&m) Can I have one of those little round things? A P&M?
Ollie: (as I was bringing Hugo out of his room after nap time) Mum! Look who it is!
Me: It's Hugo! Isn't he lovely?
Me: Do you love him more than anything in the world?
Ollie: er.... Yes
Me: Really? More than garbage trucks?
Ollie: (thinking for a moment) I love them both. I love garbage trucks AND babies.
Ollie: It's the day before Christmas Day
Me: Yes, what does that mean?
Ollie: We have to get a lot of things ready, like drinks and milk and carrots for Santa
Me: What do you think Santa would like to drink?
Ollie: Something like.... maybe something that only adults drink.
Ollie: (unwrapping his Christmas present and hopping from foot to foot) It's a side loading garbage truck! It's a side loading garbage truck! It's a side loading garbage truck! It's a side loading garbage truck! It's a side loading garbage truck! It's a side loading garbage truck!
