Innocent? Oh no!

That face says it all, really. 

And so does the letter. So when Innocent decided Charlie would be their 'O' and asked us to find an imaginative place to stick it (if you'll pardon the expression - it's a fridge magnet) there wasn't really much competition. 'Oh' is Charlie's immediate response to almost anything involving mischief, mishaps or mistakes. 'Oh' is his answer to the 'look what you've done' question. 'Oh' is what he says if he'd really like to say 'no' but wants to let you down a bit more gently.

So, ladies and gentlemen. I give you Charlie - the 'Innocent' King of O!

  1. Ah bless him, I love the way they look like butter wouldnt melt. We parents know differently though. Only this morning Youngling wanted to have Chocolate cake for breakfast! Of course I said no, then proceeded to have some myself ;-) Take care xx

  5. I like the complete surprise that "oh" suggests - true innocence. This is wrong? I had no idea! Oh!

  6. Not forgetting... 'Oh, and I promise not to do it again!'

  7. Wonderful!

    For a minute, I thought you were writing about those expensive smoothies. The ones that look pretty in their bottles or cartons but cost a bloody fortune!

    Lovely post x

  8. I think they're the people that sent the magnets, Jenny. Oh, and the t-shirt. Not so innocent after all, you see!

  9. He's adorable! I imagine he says it a specific way, unique to him, indentifiable as Charlie's "oh." (It makes me wonder if it's rubbed off on the rest of the family at all. We often mimic my grandson with his amusing way of saying "MMmmmm...")

  10. Oh, bless - Flea used to do exactly the same. These days she has worked out a new technique which is to immediately come into a room and say something like, "Sorry about the laundry, Mummy," which leaves me wondering what she's done!

  11. He has his moments, Nessa. And - yes - it's become the easiest impersonation of him anyone ever does.

    That reminds me, Sally, of one of the funniest lines I ever heard as a teacher when two truants were returned to school. 'Ok, we were sagging,' they admitted, 'but it wasn't us that stole the horse.'

  12. Adorable. Can I adopt him please? I'm missing those "oh"s lately...It is more "mum can I can a car?" or "can I have a Jack Wills' top?". Ciao. A.

  14. I know something about the latter, Lunarossa. My (elder) daughter seems to have developed something of a liking for Jack Wills. Personally, I thought it was a brand of cigarette!

    He practises that face, CJ... for hours.
