Mums confessions......

As my children were so good confessing their shenanigans not long ago, I guess I should too..... So here goes:

I "freestyle" when reading to them, make the story up as I'm going along, missing huge swathes out and showing them things in the pictures so they won't notice I'm avoiding reading half of the words.

I found these confessions on Mumsnet from other mums out there.....

 -I tell mine that the chocolate/biscuits I'm munching has nuts in so they can't have any...

-I don't always call them in to lick the beaters when I am making a cake.

-If either of my children have bumped/scraped/cut off various body parts I ask them
"Can you move it? Can you bend it?... Well it hasn't dropped off so you are ok!"

So guess this confession thing is a two way street..... Or three! Maybe we should hear from the dads too!!!!!

My 3 year old son had a BIG tantrum last week. Screaming because he did not think it was necessary to wash both hands when finished on the toilet. His argument was he only used the one hand to wipe with.... I did win the battle though but what is it with boys and lack of hand washing.......????

Confessions of a 3 year old and a 5 year old.....

My sister (5) and I (3) are seeking forgiveness for.......

Ignoring mummy completely at dinner time when we were told to stop messing about.
Running faster when we were told to stop running at all in the house!!!
Me screaming all the way through my bath as I wanted daddy not mummy to bath me......
Throwing Lego at my sister and then denying it!!!
My sister for cutting a bit of her friend's hair playing hairdresser.... And for putting Vicks all over her body then denying it though her eyes were red and teary from the smell which is hard to hide........

We also say sorry now for all future tantrums, selective hearing as in not hearing at all what mummy says and just general shenanigans we might have to get up too!!!

No more baby......

In the summer we tried to convince our son to stop wearing a nappy. He was 3years old on the 20th of August so thought he should be ready! He wasn't and would have none of it!!!!

A week ago we came back from nursery and  he asked to have his nappy off, for good!! We took it off having lots of clean clothes ready. Not at all needed.... No any accidents! Next day in nursery he proudly told everybody: No more nappy! He is not wearing a nappy at night either. He has had 2 accidents since and none at night. So proud of our little man!!!

So I have packed all the last baby things, nappies etc away! Strange and a bit sad to think No more baby. I also had to find some jeans I've packed away cos too small. Now they fit again around his little nappy free bottom.

While I wrote this I realized  I can change colour on the writing. So enjoy (I hope...) my rainbow blog:-) I will let you decide whether it's fun, nice or annoying to read a rainbow coloured blog??

Proud parents.

My little boy can now ride a bike without stabilizers only 3 years and 1 month old. He learned after 2 minutes practice with daddy and only falls because he turns his head to make sure we are looking at him. And who cares if it's big sister's old bike in purple and pink!!!

Spiderman and Spiderman 2.

No, not the film! It's my son and his daddy I'm talking about. My son got a Spiderman costume for his birthday from his uncle. The look on his daddy's face was indescribable. Probably because he claims to be Spiderman. Why you might ask...??? I know I do but apparently it's a secret!!
Well the costume obviously had to be tried on.
And just look at the little man....
He looks so cute and does look like the real Spiderman don't you think...??? I do! I have a feeling that his daddy feels a bit threatened. But I know he also feels proud that his son carries on the Spiderman legend because as I said earlier, he claims to be the real Spiderman and has told his children he is! I have decided to completely stay out of any explanation he surely has to make in years to come!!
I guess it feels quite safe having not just one Spiderman but 2 Spidermen living in our house!

Your feet don't match your face.......

We have returned from a lovely holiday in England staying with nana and papa for 10 days. One of the first nights there this story was told.

Nana and her eldest daughter were sitting in the living room watching TV one night. Nana looks at her daughter's bare feet and says: " Your feet don't match your face...!! " and straight after adds " You have such a pretty face....!!! " Which is very true but there is no way of back tracking from the first statement...... I so love it when people speak before thinking. I guess it's because then I'm not the only one doing it!!!!

Donuts in all the colours you can think off!! What more can you wish for........

Well I could probably easily mention a few other things I wish for but let's leave it for now.....We are off to England on holiday in a few days. We are all very excited. Nana just asked if any wishes regarding food.  My children and their daddy wish for fairy cakes, ginger bread men and donuts! Lots and lots of donuts!!!

I do understand them when I see all these very colourful ones. They do look delicious. Talking about the word delicious! What a delightful word. It oozes happiness and sounds funny. As does the name of the cake I love. Chocolate Eclaires! Eclaires....What kind of word is that? Do think it fits the cake though which is so very delicious! I ate a lot of them when I was pregnant with my daughter.

So maybe that's why she loves cakes or it's in her genes? Obviously the ones she got from her daddy! Because my son is equally as big a cake lover so must be the genes.

Back to food wishes. I wish for Indian food. Tikka Massala is my favourite.

Laminator 2.

I bought myself a laminator a while ago. So exciting!!! I laminated the children's drawings straight away. Looked fantastic. Can't say my children and their daddy share my excitement. But there are so many things you can laminate. Little buisness cards I have absolutely no use for but they are so cute!!

My daughter is gluing little pictures on to paper. So I ask her. " What about laminating it? " She looks at me a bit confused. Not at all knowing what I'm talking about. But says: " Yes mummy " I have of course forgotten all about how much glue a 5 year old uses! The result is a weird smell and a bit of smoke.....No panic (actually think it's only me about to panic as everybody else has gone to play in the garden) I let the laminator cool and then take it apart. Yep burned glue! No problem... I clean it off and put it back together. Cleaning goes well, fixing it not so well!!!!! Luckily one of the supermarkets had laminators on special at the weekend. And a smarter one! So welcome laminator 2. We are all happy again. Well I am. The rest of the family don't seem to care so much about whether we have a laminator or not!!!!
