The Gingerbread Man


‘Run, run as fast as you can.  You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man….’  I love that story.  In fact I love all stories.  I can even tell a lot of stories by myself now.  Yes – I am a BIG GIRL!

Mammy says I am a really good girl.  I like playing in the garden, going in the greenhouse and pulling up the baby plants and singing songs.  I can sing lots of songs and Mammy likes it when I sing for her.  She says she especially likes it when I sing at 5 in the morning.  That’s the time I like to get up.

Most days, Mammy goes to work.  I hate that and I shout ‘Mammy NO work’.  That makes her feel bad, which makes me feel a bit better.  The minute she leaves, I’m fine and I have great fun with my friends at nursery.  On Fridays, Mammy doesn’t have to go to work so she and I do lots of fun stuff together.  She says it’s our ‘girlie day’.

This week we baked Gingerbread men.  Mammy didn’t have a recipe of her own so she got it from here.  They were delicious.  I got to colour one in with a paint pen and then eat it afterwards.  I made it look all handsome like Daddy.

Today I asked for another Gingerbread man and Mammy said they were all gone.  That made me sad.  I hope we can bake more Gingerbread men next friday.  When I asked, Mammy said, ‘probably not’, or else she and Daddy will get fat.  I think Dad and I can convince her though…..
