The Ordinary Moments – More Tea Mummy!


Little O doesn’t really have a sweet tooth. He doesn’t like chocolate, ice cream or jelly, but he is quite partial to a biscuit. Nothing too fancy, his favourite is a ginger nut, followed closely by a custard cream or a digestive.

He loves nothing more than a quick break in play sat on the couch with a cup of milk and a biscuit (or cuckoo and bic bic, as he calls it), but there is a catch. I must have a cup of tea with him for dip dip. If he’s having a biscuit it must be dunked, it’s not up for discussion. I’ve tried giving him his milk and biccie without also having a cuppa and it doesn’t quite compute in his little brain, “Tea mummy?” Ultimately I end up trotting off to put the kettle on.

It is very cute to hear him say “dip dip bic bic mummy tea”, and those times are so sweet when we’re snuggled on the couch, just the two of us. Very precious moments that I hope he doesn’t grow out of too quickly.

    Nice to have such a sophisticated palate at such a young age. ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my favorite literary characters, young genius Artemis Fowl, is partial to Earl Grey.

    Mine used to call them Bic bics! I like all sorts of fancy biscuits but actually they are pretty keen on Rich Teas, which suits me!

    Aw so cute, these are definitely the little moments you will look back and treasure. I love a good Custard Cream, they are one of my favourites. But I don’t drink tea unfortunately! x

      We have no idea where cuckoo comes from! It doesn’t sound anything like milk.

      No, he really doesn’t like sweet stuff. The good thing is when ice creams are included in kiddie meals I get to eat it without buying my own pudding! And sometimes he gets given them for free ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow I don’t think I’ve come across a kid who isn’t keen on sweet things. Lovely play break ritual & excuse for a biscuit too ๐Ÿ™‚
