A day in the life

This Morning:

Nat: Mum, can you help me build this train track?

Me: Err, an Astute Child could see I am up to my elbows in pattycake mixture ...

Nat: A Stupid Child could see that?

This Evening:



Jodie said...

Nice one :-) Yes, you earned that glass of red.

Heather said...

Hoo boy. You earned that BOTTLE of red.

Hoping things are more peaceful and less tantrumy in your corner of the world by now!

Jen said...

That is my favorite wine! I hope you enjoyed every drop!

CynthiaK said...

That sounds a lot like my kitchen at times. (actually, far too regularly) And, I fully support your therapy. Haven't tried that wine before...will have to put that one on the list. Can I get it in Canada?!

Love Anna Lucia closing herself up in between the corner cabinet doors. Max does that all the time! LOL!

Scurrette said...

Oh my... Is she crying for a milo??! Aphid #2, whom I believe is merely days younger then her also puts on the *MIMOOOOOO!* performance. I think it's hillarious (in a sick and sedistic kind of way) that we have 3 the same age and, well, they seem to act kinda the same!

I sent my boys to the train museum today, and the first thing Aphid #1 said to me upon arriving home was:
*I didn't have a tantrum mummy!*


Hippomanic Jen said...

Umm, can I ask what the blazes a non-drinking Mum does at that stage?

Or is it a case that the non-drinking doesn't last too long under that kind of pressure?

Crazy Sister said...

That's awful. But you're an AMAZING cleaner - look at your house! Minimal mess.

Melt some chocolate into that wine.

Givinya De Elba said...

Wha-? I panned around in that video to show you all the mess!

You're so kind to lie for me. "Minimal Mess." Ha.

Swift Jan said...

I agree,,,mit IS minimal mess. You should see mine on a normal day when I'm not trying to sell my house!

Sassy Britches said...

Holy crap. I was JUST thinking the same thing as your sister. I figured you'd panned around to make us THINK your house was a shambles, but I was all "Wowsers, her kids are going nuts but at least her house is clean!"

Poor little tykes, though. Hug it out!

Shari said...

Cause and effect---brilliant! LOL

Based on others comments, you and I share a similar affliction and cannot assess when the house is truly "messy" rather than just lived in!
