Fred's story transcribed by mama*

It was time for Frederique to have her bath.
"I don't want to have my bath. And I don't want to go to bed!"
"Why don't you want to have a bath and go to bed?' asked Mama.
"Because I want to stay and play," said Fred.
Mama was very cross and she said "Shut up."**
Frederique cried, "Daddy Daddy"
Daddy gave Frederique a cuddle and said, "I love you."
Frederique said, "I love you" and Frederique loved Daddy all afternoon.
Una held Fred's foot and sang "la di da di da di da."
Mama was cross with Daddy too, and she said "Shut up."
But when she was at night time she got very sick.
And Daddy came and said, "What's wrong"
And Mama said, "I'm not very well."
Daddy went out and jumped over the fence and just came back and then just went back over the fence again.
Frederique was grumpy and she banged herself on her bed.
Mummy had a piggy-tail.

And that's The End. Write The End.

    what is it with shut up?
    we have had a perplexing outbreak of the shut ups here, with both children, although with willow she snaps it, and with zeph he kind of asks gently "muuuu-um, shut up?".
