» Being told off as an adult

Not me...
but my other half was told off by our 3 year old daughter last night when they were playing hide and seek. He hid on the windowsill in our bedroom behind the curtain and when she found him she told him off because it was "a very dangerous place to hide".

She does tell the pair off us off on a regular basis anyway, god help her when she's a teenager, she'll never leave the house because we're so embarrassing.

» Shoplifting

In the dim distant years of my youth..
I was probably responsibly singlehandedly for the crimewave that swept the small rural town we lived in. I only targetted the local chemist but ended up with boxes of multicoloured hairspray (ah the 80's, how I miss them) and rimmel eyeliners in azure blue.

Looking back at it all it does beg the question "why did I do it?", my parents were a tad strict, and so I was never allowed to wear eyeliner, let alone spray my hair florescent pink.

So the stash mouldered under my bed until I found somewhere discreet to throw it.

» Cheap Tat

Always buys "bargins", anything that is on offer she'll buy. This stuff is not necessarily cheap or tat but it is certainly not needed. There are 2 of them, her and her husband, they live in a 2 bedroomed terraced house, so why do they need 6 duvets? We've banned her buying anymore things for our daughter.

» Picky Eaters

Apparently they don't really dislike it until they have tried it 10 times
Small children trying things for the first time, they can't really be said to dislike something until they have tried it 10 times, or so my food Nazi sister says.

My daughter really pisses me off with the fact that she will not try anything that even vaguely resembles a fresh vegetable or piece of fruit, unless it is a potato, a banana, or a grape. I trained as a chef, and like quite a few people here I prefer my food to come as naturally as possible to my kitchen where I will do wonderful things to it (I can honestly say I have never eaten a MacDonald's Burger). I have slaved in the kitchen for hours and presented to my daughter some wonderful concoction of delight that I know she will love if she would just venture to let some pass her lips, but it is not to be and any such offerings are greeted with "Don't like it". Baby Fluffles sticks resolutely to baked beans on toast with cheese, or jacket potato with tuna and cheese, and nothing else will do, she has even been known to refuse all meals offered to her over a 2 day period rather than let anything unknown cross her lips.

But, I do confess to a certain glee when, phoning my darling child who is staying with the aforementioned food Nazi sister one night this week, I overheard the following conversation:

FNS: "Have you finished Baby Fluffles; would you like some more?"
Baby Fluffles: "Potato"
FNS: "No potatoes Baby Fluffles, you can have more Cauliflower Cheese, or would you like some couscous with Cheese Sauce"
Baby Fluffles: "Don't like Cauliflower 'n' couscous, Potatoes!"
FNS: "Have some more potatoes then Baby Fluffles".

My sister is currently writing a book on how to get your child to eat what you want them to eat :)
