Clicking My Heels and a 'Muffin Off'

The headline will read;

3 YEAR OLD SCARRED BY JETSET MOTHER

As you all know I went on a jolly trip of great importance to the US of A a few weeks ago.

Tonight we engaged MarMar for babysitting duties so that we could go to the cinema.

Husband - Goodnight, see you in the morning

3 year old - Are you going to America with Mummy?

Clearly the 3 year old is still in some confusion about time and distance ... or he is scarred by my abandoning him for the best pomegranate mojitos ever Mickey Mouse ... or he thinks I can click my heels like Dorothy.

I think I shall buy him a globe.

In other news ... on Wednesday I will be presenting the results of my 'Muffin Off' with Single Parent Dad (He of packet bun shame) where we shall both be judged by englishmum when we attempt to recreate her vanilla muffins. I'm still not sure what the criteria is, I'll just be glad if my embarrasing efforts beautiful muffins are not charred.

I see you got my email that I sent from my phone. Since my phone hates me, I'm never quite sure if they go through. :)

Love that he thinks you're headed to America everytime you leave the house!

Good luck, I'm rooting for you (rather you than me)

English Mum said...

Oh dear, am I judging? Mickey sprinkles at the ready, then!

Ahh poor abandoned child lol. Oh and I have an award for you over at mine :)

Good luck with the muffins! I'm still waiting for the "Beam me up, Scotty" capability.

I nearly did a mean thing the other day: my kids, obsessed by the Disney idea, keep asking me if we can go....I was so tempted to say yes and then "fly" there on Google Earth (my current obsession) but that would've been too mean. We went to Iraq and Oz instead!

Muffin's? Hmmmm, tasty muffins....

Love the idea of the muffin-off almost much as the naked knitted family.... Think you need the Mickey sprinkles frankly....to make it a fair contest!!

Love the idea of a muffin off. Any chance of the winning recipe?

I love the way you cross out some of your words, very clever. Haven't a clue how to do that!
