Humor Isla Says

More Conversations With My Kid

19th January 2018

On her second snow day…

Neil: It’s a blizzard.
Isla: I don’t see a lizard. It’s snow, Daddy.

On love…

Isla: I love you, Mumma. Don’t ever change.
Me: *just over here on the floor*

On snacks…

Isla was picking through a bag of gum-drops after lunch. ‘Hmm. I think Nana ate all the good ones.’

On her mother’s artistic abilities…

Me: It’s a butterfly.
Isla: It’s a heart with a line in it.
Me: Well, you and me went to different schools.

On what she thinks of her Dad’s office…

Me:  Dad’s door is closed.
Isla: It’s always closed. Can we drill it open?

On the other office…

Me:  If you’re not out of there in five minutes, your butt’s gonna fall down the toilet.
Isla: OK!

On being my favorite kid…

Isla:  Daddy, Mummy needs coffee…
