They say things like:
"The servers didn't say my dress was beautiful??!"
A comment Miss G made to me when we were out to dinner on Friday night.
Clearly she is used to being complimented on her outfit!
They feel and comment on the fabric or 'baterial' (two year old for material) of any item of clothing or fabric purchase brought into the house, with much 'ooohing' and 'aaahing'!
You hear things like;
"I was just looking at your sewing thing Mum".
Said in reference to the ironing board...
And of course, reliving my favourite Mondegreeen - they incorporate sewing tools into song lyrics...
Sung to the tune of Beauty and the Beast
"Tailors Awl as time, true as it can be...."
(Tale as old as time in case you are wondering!)
There are many more instances of how familiar my girls are with sewing and how they assume everyone's mum can sew, these are just a few that spring to mind.
If you've had a funny crafting comment/moment of late with your children or partner - do share so we can all enjoy it.
Hope your weekend is going well.
