After just playing the “where did the girls hide their water bottles” game that seems to take place nightly, I thought I’d hop on here to write a quick post. No, I still haven’t found one of them so someone may get quite thirsty tomorrow.
I’ve noticed the trend of not updating my blog is most likely to occur when I’ve packed my laptop away. By that I mean that I’ve put it on a shelf in the kitchen around two metres away from where I now stand. Yes folks, it seems I am that lazy. If it’s out I write, if it’s not then I don’t. Simple as that really, which is pretty appalling if I do say so myself.
I just took a quick break from writing this post to tuck Little Man in bed. This is after Hubby, fresh from brushing his teeth, delivered a stern message from the boy stating that I am to put his rest nappy on and say goodnight before promptly leaving. Apparently it was said with a firm tone strongly implying that there is to be no bedtime shenanigans. So, here I am. Back to you lot already. Although, I am kinda’ missing the conversations we tend to have, where we chat and then I pretend I see a mark on his face that needs kissing better and I end up smothering him in kisses, in the nicest possible way, obviously.
WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
Being snotty mostly. Oh and coughing up lungs left, right and centre. The girls are cutting teeth, Little Man is being his usual self and that is switching between being sweet to channeling his sixteen year old self. I honestly don’t know where he gets it *said with an eye roll*.
It was Hubby’s birthday last week and, even though the boy demanded we invite all of his friends for a birthday party, we just kept it low key. I made a cake cleverly designed as a donut (no I didn’t just eat the middle, it’s a real pan shaped that way and everything) and blew up some balloons that the girls have enjoyed kicking around the place. Little Red has quite a good left foot but, perhaps worryingly, Copperhead approaches as if she was wearing a pair of Dr Martens and is attacking a football fan of a rival team.
I also put their hair (the girls I mean) in their first pigtails. I took about a thousand photos but this one was the least blurry…
If you heard a faint squealing yesterday morning don’t worry. It was just me being super excited by the milestone!
I’ll be leaving my laptop out so hopefully I’ll see you tomorrow!
