According to Betty...

Betty (during a cold): Oh dear, I have got baked beans up my nose mummy


We very rarely do any ironing and so when Tom got the ironing board out Betty said: You got a new canoe daddy?


Betty and her friend were on a seesaw together. Her friend said: Milk comes from cows. Betty replied: Apple juice comes from pigs


Tom was visibly stressed after a grueling day at work. Betty patted his back and said: It's ok sweetheart, you’re ok now?


Betty claimed she saw the tooth fairy flying through a cloud yesterday, and that night she looked under her pillow and genuinely confused she said: Where’s my coin?


I asked Betty what her daddy's name was, and she replied: James Blunt


I asked Betty what my name was and she replied: Jelly Baby


Betty to Dolly: Don't cry sweetheart, I am eating my lunch


Now when I tell Betty off she says: Are you happy mummy?


Betty was telling me that she doesn’t like tomatoes and lettuce. I told her that I love them. I then told her that I love her. She replied: But you can’t eat Betty on a plate mummy


Tom was holding Dolly this morning and Betty entered the room and said to him: Give Dolly to mummy, she is mummy's baby

The wisdom of youth. 'You can't put Betty on a plate'- LMAO!

They say children copy the things we say, so why are you calling your husband James Blunt? And more to the point, why is he calling you Jelly Baby . . .

Those are top quality quotes. Its great that you have captured them for that one day in the future when she is all grown up and you can look back and smile.

Haha. A canoe? Either you really very very rarely do ironing, or your ironing is a lot more fun than mine.
She's adorable, absolutely.

Word verification: cherie. (!)

omigod! Did you have an affair with James Blunt? Was it when he was in Verbier skiing? my friend saw him in a bar, were you there too?

Wow Elsie B, good on ya.
Pigx
Sorry Tomx

my word verif is 'cylorna' that would be a good name for a love child...

Just to set the record straight on the whole James Blunt/Daddy mix-up: I have no taste in music and love listening to James B in the car, however, if Betty (who obviously has much better taste in music than me) is with me, she winces and says 'no james blunt' over and over until i turn it off. Tom is the same. (they are the little in-crowd who like cool music). So maybe when i asked her what her daddy's name was she thought it might please me to say JB or maybe she was just taking the p*** out of me. Probably the latter.

And Met Mum, i wish i was some kind of inspired and creative ironer, but sadly it really is because we NEVER EVER do any ironing!

Thanks for your comments, they really made me laugh! x
