Children

Things To Remember

- never let the toddler climb over the alarmed fence at the museum. At least she wasn't the only one to do it.
- always shut the lid on the container of 50 small crickets, just in case they get tipped over by the 5yr old. Now we know what the house looks like with insects crawling all over it!
- start chores earlier in the morning so we have more of the day free.
- don't expect the husband to stay awake during a movie especially if he was up all night the previous night watching star wars episode 1 through to 6.

I am sure there is more but it is hard to think when the kids are reading over your shoulder!

The Good With The Not So Good

The Not So Good
* Erin decided her room was too plain so she painted the walls.
* I had to scrub it off the walls as my first attempt at cleaning them just didn't work well enough
* I have a cold, first one in ages
* Mercedes decided to break (drop or throw I do not know) a glass half full with berry juice. I just discovered some berry juice on the ceiling!!! How do I clean that off since the ceilings are just too high, even standing on a chair I can't reach them
* It is hot and it is winter. You would think it is the start of summer!
* The cupboard in the little girls room fell over and made a dent in the wardrobe trim (glad it wasn't the wall)
* My pc's power box blew up the other night

The Good
* The kids are now quiet and contained and watching an 'educational' video
* I sold Mercedes cot on ebay for more then I was hoping to get
* I have my pc back and running
* We got an unexpected cheque in the mail yesterday

I am sure there is more but I have to go scrub the ceiling (berry juice stains), work on my e-courses, do lots of laundry (berry juice soaked towels), get the next load of dishes going, mop the floors, make/prepare dinner, sneeze a few times while the kids are quiet and contained for a few minutes!

The Sky Is Falling

Jade looked up at the sky this afternoon and asked why is was broken. I told her that those were clouds!

No we don't get a lot of rain here, well we haven't had any for ages and are considered in a drought.

She Is Growing Up Fast

This past weekend she has learnt to open doors (tall enough if she stands on her toes), given up on day time naps, and discovered mummy doesn't keep gum in her purse anymore but daddy's desk is more fun anyhows.

Fashion Sense?

Erin's (4) sense of fashion leaves a lot to be desired.
She is wearing - a matching bra and knickers set, boxing gloves, tiara, necklace and cowgirl boots! At least she doesnt have the wedding dress and butterfly wings on anymore! Though it may make more sense!
