Can I have a biscuit please...


I cannot count the amount of times Oliver asks me this each day. He loves biscuits. More than any person I know. It doesn't matter what type they are, Savoy, Shapes, Sao, Salada (like the alliteration Collette?), he will quite happily sit there and consume a whole box.

Simon's favourite treat is biscuits with dip or a nice cheese so he has moved the biscuits up high so Oliver cannot see them. But Oliver seems to be able to sniff them out and this is what I found coming into the kitchen this morning.


A while back he asked me for a biscuit and I said, 'okay but just a couple'. Sure enough I found him with the box half eaten. I said, 'Oliver, I said you could only have a couple'. 'But Mum', he says, 'I don't know what a couple is'. So I told him a couple was 3 and a few days later when he asked me for a biscuit he said, 'I will just have a couple, is a couple 3 or 4 Mum?'

4 is a fun age. I sure enjoy my 4 year old, well, most of the time.
