Ed to Ivy: "Hurry up birdbrain"
Ivy to Ed (tearful and outraged): "I NOT birdbrain...pauses...I MERMAID"
At Easter - Kate offers Ivy an Easter Bun.
Ivy: "Mummy, I love Easter BUMS"
Ivy - also at Easter after a big tantrum and general crying and sobbing
"I..*sob* know..*sob* what would make me feel better *sob*"
Ivy: "Chocolate rabbit. Chocolate rabbits make Ivy all better"
This morning after an argument about what to wear:
Ed: "Put your leggings on"
Ivy: "I don't like leg-lings"
Ed: "too bad, put them on please"
Ivy: "no thanks, I just wear my legs today".
Another morning she comes over walking a bit funny with her undies all twisted up:
"Mummy, my undies have gone silly"
And finally after forcing her way into the bathroom while Ed is on the toilet:
"Daddy, you did a poo! You get a chocolate froggy! You make mummy SO proud"
