We've survived the first morning of the autumn school holidays.
Kaiden and Corey have been holed up in Kaiden's room all morning, killing zombies or aliens or something equally as testosterone filled and disturbing. I just peeked in a while ago and the wave of heat and boy smell that hit me, made me retreat quick smart.
They did emerge briefly earlier this morning for Hot Cross Buns. Being soldiers of fortune is obviously hungry work.
Soon I'll have to become the horrible mum who spoils all their fun, and kick them out of that room and get them to do something a little more physical or constructive. Such as mowing the lawn or cleaning the pool, I think.
Gosh I love having my
Charlie is currently fast asleep in his cot, tightly clutching Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy.
As an aside; until a few weeks ago I didn't have a clue who these characters were either. But since Charlie has fallen deeply and completely in love with the program In The Night Garden, I have become a bit of an expert. Out of sheer necessity. An 18mth old insistently asking "who's dat?" over and over can become quite wearing.
"That's the Ninky Nonk."
"That's the Pinky Ponk."
"And that strange looking alien creature there is Makka Pakka. Just be careful your older brothers don't catch sight of him or that will be the end of Makka Pakka."
But back to the school holidays.
I have a list (of course I have a list!!!) of things for us all to do over the holidays, so although I still have to work during this time, I do plan on making this 2 weeks as fun as possible. But I'm sure some of the things on the list will make the older boys groan and roll their eyes at the thought of going to some uncool place like a park or the zoo. WITH THEIR PARENTS. Oh the cruelty!
Wish me luck.
