Now that’s something I never thought I’d say!
It’s rather ironic that in my pre-Monkey life I worked for a company that supplied JCB with plastic components for their production lines. Little did I know then, that one day I would be able to reel off the different makes and sometimes, even the model (yes, that IS true, and a little sad) manufactured by them. Monkey is fanatical about all things JCB and we have a number of the My 1st JCB toys, books and even DVD’s – did you know that Diggers can Dance??
Anyway, as I’ve mentioned in a previous post Monkey is being rather challenging at dinner times. Tonight he ate his Chicken Kiev with no problems and then spent ten minutes just staring at his veg. Here we go again thought I, when suddenly Monkey raised his arm in the air ….
Mummy, I’m Larry Loadall, this is my telescopic arm!
He then proceeded to use his fork as ‘the fork’ on Larry Loadall, and loaded his veg up and scooped it into his mouth. A few minutes later and his dinner plate was empty.
I shall be inviting Larry and his telescopic arm for dinner from now on! I just love Monkey’s imagination, as a late talker, he just amazes me with the things he now comes out with, and if it makes dinnertime less stressful all well and good :)
Meet the Real Larry Loadall – my new dinnertime hero …..
