I knew I had to watch what I say and do right from the beginning of motherhood, but oh my word Jamie’s picked up some bad habits from me (and hubby) without us even realizing!
- Licking off Bovril off the knife after making a sandwich.
I love Bovril and that buttery, Bovril left over on the knife is just yummy goodness, and I just can’t help myself. When Jamie wants Bovril toast, I allow him to help make it – he likes getting involved in the kitchen. The little monkey is also now licking the Bovril… every single time!
- Putting Vicks on my lips
I know you’re not supposed to, but I like putting Vicks Vaporub on my lips, especially when I’m congested or struggling with dry lips. It really helps. Every time Jamie see’s the Vicks, he wants me to open it and when I do he very carefully puts a small dollop on his lips. Ai! I now have to hide my Vicks
Jamie saw hubby and me putting slap chips on our breadrolls and the little dude also started it – when I gave him a hamburger and chippies over the weekend – he nonchalantly opened up his burger and placed the chips on top before closing it again and started munching away.
- Licking the yogurt lid
Yes another one from me – when I open a 100g yogurt I lick the yogurt on the bottom of the lid before I chuck it away. Jamie picked up on it and started doing it as well *naughty mama*
And I’m sure there’s more I just don’t remember right now. We really have to start being even more careful of what we say and do… because it’s clear as day – MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DO!
