Children

Moving House

We are moving house, and shall be a little busy for a couple of weeks.

A little news about us : #2 child broke her elbow and is in a sling for 5 weeks; #3 child had her 9th birthday, saved up for and bought a kids camping kit from Aldi; we are on school holidays; we are moving (gee what a big job); and lots of other fun stuff I can’t think of right now.

Conversations with a 4yr old

Working in the kitchen this morning, I had the following conversation with M4
Me: Can I have the milk please
M4 passes me the milk
Me: Thankyou
M4: Your welcome
M4: I farted, smell my bum!

I did not teach her that! lol!

Pink Is The Colour


I gave up on the red dress, decided to do something I new I could. I had some pink polar fleece I bought a few years ago so I decided to turn it into something the kids would wear. M4 got a pink hoody and E6 got a pink beanie.
They both like what I made them.
The best bit being that they were simple and quick to put together.

Mercedes 4th Birthday

Today is Mercedes 4th birthday.
Our baby is growing up quickly!
She hates to be called baby and always corrects us by saying "I Say-dees".
She doesn't like kisses or prayers anymore but will still let you do them, and giggles when you kiss her.
She likes to draw on herself (but I think most 4 yr olds are like this when confronted with feltpens)
She still likes her 'milky' and has her sippy cup which she uses.
Her eyes haven't changed and they are still blue with a brown centre.
Her smile lights up the room and is frequent on her face (unless she is fighting with her sisters)

She still prefers pants over skirts and dresses and the longest we can get her to keep them on is for 5 minutes.
She loves to draw and will quite happily do that (even if it is on the floor, her belly, book, etc)
She will quite often create little games to play by herself, either sitting on her bed or just by herself in a quiet part of the house. She is not embarrassed by this.
She still has blonde hair!
She is loved.

For her birthday this year I took upon myself a challenge and made her a shirred top for her, and a pair of matching pants. Shirring was a lot easier then I expected. The pants are already in the wash. They are in her favourite colour, pink! I am sure she likes them (hopefully she will wear the dress like top)

First Tooth - Lost


Erin has lost her first tooth! It wasn't the one we expected her to loose as her bottom two teeth are really wiggly and you can see the adult teeth coming up behind them. Her other front top tooth is also loose! I can imagine she will have a gappy smile for a while!
