Crossing Legs {The Ordinary Moments}

Children learn so much from their parents and the world around them, mannerisms, ways of pronouncing words, accents, hand gestures. Every little action and word that comes from a child they have learnt from somewhere and the one thing that LP does that makes me smile every time is the way that she crosses her legs when she’s relaxing and watching TV.

LP doesn’t even know she’s doing it. She sits down, in her own little world and at some point will cross her legs. It’s so simple and yet shows how content she is. It’s also something that neither Dave or I do. I have no idea where she has learnt it from or whether she has just found it comfortable by herself. Whatever it is I think it’s a pose that is here to stay. LP and her little crossed legs.

    Donna Wishart is married to Dave and they have two children, Athena (12) and Troy (11). They live in Surrey with their two cats, Fred and George. Once a Bank Manager, Donna has been writing about everything from family finance to days out, travel and her favourite recipes since 2012. Donna is happiest either exploring somewhere new, with her camera in her hand and family by her side or snuggled up with a cat on her lap, reading a book and enjoying a nice cup of tea. She firmly believes that tea and cake can fix most things.

  1. How very grown-up! You’re totally right about kids adopting mannerisms, and many a time I’ve seen my own reflected in M’s and I’ve had to stop and think: oh wow, do I really do that? and the answer is, of course, usually yes. I would love to know where LP picked this up though!
