I think I'll have to change the name of this blog to plural form. My Kids Are Too Funny. Maya is coming in to her own with her increasing verbal skills and is proving to be a cheeky match for her brother.
Scrambling onto her bed, she begins to jump. "Hop down please, Maya, Mummy said no jumping on the bed."
Maya (predictably so far): "No." (continues jumping).
Me, holding out my hand to help her. "Come on, Maya" (a bit more firmly now) "Mummy says no."
Maya (pausing to address me, imitating my firm tone, looking in my eyes) "Maya says yes." (continues jumping).
