The green Post-it Note

In a shop after school yesterday, Small Sprog fell in love with a pad of bright green Post-it Notes. He looked at me in his endearing way and I fell for it instantly, buying them for him in a trice. "What on earth are you going to do with post-it notes?" I say as I reach into my bag for the money. He grins.

"Mummy, can I have something to eat?" He asks when we arrive home.
"I'll get you something in a minute" I reply, as I turn on the laptop in the kitchen and settle down to a little bit of reading.

I get absorbed reading this article and faffing around with Twitter.

A while later Small Sprog appears next to me in the kitchen. He -for once- says nothing. He doesn't need to. He stands and stares at me, trying not to smile. His presence is distracting, I give him a sideways look and burst into laughter. His face is hidden, his gaze cast downward, because, stuck to his forehead is a bright green post-it note. On the note, in his wobbly writing is
just one word...Hungry!

Just how does he think of it?

Top chap skills! Next he'll be saying 'These are not the droids you are looking for', and waving his hand past your eyes....you ask him!

Small Sprog is very cool indeed.
I went to the article and thought it fascinating. Will return to it when I have time......
Blogging has become a very important part of my life.
I really love the contact with others.

That's almost like paper based text speak. Text? Hold on, I'll get you a hardcopy...!

Rose said...

LOL, I don't think you'll have to worry about Small Sprog--he's brilliant! The more I read of his exploits, the more I think he and Grandson #1 would get along famously.

That really made me smile!!! :-)

Hilarious! (And "faffing around": great expression. I think I'll try to promote its usage on this side of the pond.)

French Fancy said...

Oh that is so sweet - please tell me you jumped up and fed him. What am I saying - of course you did. What did he have - details please. Remember, I'm living vicariously through you.

Expat mum said...

So funny. Mine just goes to the fridge and threatens to climb up the shelves if I don't feed him!

Ladybird World Mother said...

Now that is just such a brilliant idea... tell Small Sprog that he has inspired me to do the same. Will stick one on my head in the morning saying NOT WASHING UP TODAY.

I like his style

this is my patch said...

That's really funny! Let us know what other messages he relays on his post-its! x

Chic Mama said...

So funny......my children spend hours doing 'things' with post it notes. In fact I think I have a fetish for them, bought some new shaped ones only yesterday. ;0)

Aw Small Sprog is certainly a fun person to have around. I'm sure he lightens your mood on many occasions♥ Priceless. Linda xoxo

Lindsay said...

LOL!

And did the post-it on your own forehead say "So what?"

Working Mum said...

He he he! Very funny! My daughter is the queen of the post it note - I've now had to hide them from her because we get notes everywhere. (The latest were "be nice" after a playdate with a boisterous boy)

Sink said...

Ahhh, to joke is wonderful. To plan a joke -- the humor is part of this little soul!

Awesome!
