Car Chats………Round 5

Car Chats with Zamamabakes

So this week conversations have been quite tame and very ‘G’ rated in the Zamama mobile, no mention of peanut butters or vegemites, thank goodness.

Ella was the main star of the show this week……throwing some panic and a pleasant announcement into the mix.

Monday was panic day,  5 minutes into our trip to school I had Ella telling me she had forgotten to pack her homework and we needed to turn around or she would be in sooooo much trouble! So we turned around (cue my huff and eye roll). Yes we were late to school, lucky it was assembly morning and the school gate was still open. Lucky!!! And lucky it was not one of my work days or she would have been left with the soooooo much trouble option!

Then later in the week there was Ella’s grand announcement…… ‘I’m going to try a little bit of every vegetable you cook Mum’. Well in shock I think I almost stopped the car to make sure it was my daughter sitting next to me. These words coming from my child’s mouth that up until now has only eaten a limited selection of vegetables were quite the revelation! I even questioned her  ‘so you mean things like broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, tomato and peas??????’, she said ‘yes Mum, just little bits’.  Blown away….. I have no idea where this healthy eating enthusiasm has come from but I’m happy to run with it! I can vouch she is following through on the grand announcement, tonight she ate some cooked spinach and over the weekend she let us put tomato on her hamburger!!!

Just to let you know we did see the stock standard, post preschool melt-downs from one little Alani but it wouldn’t be a normal week driving without being serenaded by our delightful threenager at least twice or more!

I can still remember pre-children days driving to work listening to my choice of music along with my own thoughts! How times have changed………. car travel is now so frustrating enlightening and if you asked me to choose one or the other it would be the now, the car chats, melt-downs and all!!!

What’s been chatting in your car this week?

Any panic U-turns for you?

Got any good tips on how to get threenagers to eat more vegetables or do I just go with the flow and wait for her 7-year-old revelation??

Until the next time…….

  1. Peanut Butters and Vegemites? I think I follow…

    Today in the car my Twitchette Miss7 and I were both annoyed with earworm. She, with one of my Suzanne Vega songs; and I with that darn Taylor Swift! We agreed we wanted to switch :) #teamIBOT

      This might link http://zamamabakes.com/?p=2433 might help with peanut butters and vegemites but I’d say you are following. We have music issues in the car a lot. You’ve just enlightened me with the phrase/word ‘earworm’ (I had to google). Tell me when you work out how to switch your earworm issues!! Nice to have you visit! :)

  2. Oh god, I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old who mostly refuse to eat anything I make that isn’t jam toast. I am no help to you, unfortunately! #TeamIBOT

      Hugzilla you bring me great comfort with your words. Our 3 year old is a shocker. How good is Jam toast!! You have been a help, thanks for being honest, your little cherubs will come around eventually. :)

    Most of my car conversations revolve around mine craft these days. My child is obsessed!
    Occasionally some other subject matter sneaks in. :)

      Oh for sure you’ve got to love mine craft. Our 3 year old knows more about it than I do. Zadada and I almost get motion sickness when we look at it! Conversations are just so precious! Have a great weekend :)

  4. Our 2 1/2 year old is starting to get a little fussy (he will be a threenager in January and I’m scared already) but I find if I add some of my Mum’s homemade sauce over the top, he will eat it every time.
    Our car chats can be pretty random,but they ALWAYS involve being informed of any truck/fire engine or police car sightings.

      Is your Mum’s homemade sauce on your Blog? It’s funny I remember after having our little boy if Zadada and I were in the car alone we’d still point out all the machinery to each other, so precious!
