Talking of poo, my wonderful friend designed this magnificent poster!

The fascination with poo!

January 27th, 2017

Joshua loves toilet humour at the moment.. and this is not a totally new thing, he’s enjoyed laughing about poo for a couple of months now.

In the mornings he likes to have his poo-ridge for breakfast. Oscar is like ‘eurgh, no it’s not poo-ridge, it’s porridge!’ in disgust.

Every now and then he just says that his food is poo.. oh that chocolate sandwich, ‘that’s not chocolate it’s poo;’ it tastes like poo ‘I like poo’ he says. Often he then does say, ‘oh no, I don’t like poo, you can’t eat poo.’ Which we all agree with.

Sometimes we play a game where we go to the shops and mummy buys some poo but I don’t realise until it’s in my hand, or I smell it and then it’s hilarious! Sometimes I give him poo at the shop and sometimes I throw it at him- haha!

And to conclude, this fascination may have come from mummy, shouting ‘watch out for the poo!’ every time we walk to the car 😒 yuk!

One of my favourite things about being a mummy is watching my children grow and learning about them. Oscar had his first opticians appointment this week. He’s seen me go a few times and was happy to go. When we got there he seemed excited and so grown up; he followed the instructions well and we kept on having little reassuring smiles at each other. When the test was over and the optician was writing up the results Joshua went over to him, gave him a stroke on his leg and asked him if he was alright or said well done. It was so lovely and melts my heart. I’m super proud of them both and the people that they are xxx

Logical leaps

August 12th, 2016

Tonight, Oscar was a it worried about robbers coming in the night to take his toys. We had a chat about it, including police, and jobs and how robbers rob because they can’t get a job… It all culminated in this set of logical leaps by Oscar.

“I want to be a policeman when I’m big, to tell the robbers what to do. They rob because they can’t get a job. Maybe I can tell them what job to get. Oh, except I don’t know much about that… But they could be a policeman! … No. That won’t work. If they’re all police, then there’ll be no robbers. An then what will the police do?”

“Oh, what do the police do when there’s no robbers?”

“I don’t know. We haven’t got to that level yet, have we, Daddy”

“Hmm. Maybe you can think about it a bit more. But now it’s time to go to sleep!”

Joshua and Mummy Day

June 27th, 2016

So, Joshua and I have spent the day together today, and Oscar and Daddy have too. We’ve had a lovely time together. Joshua has been very affectionate with kisses and cuddles and we’ve had a few hilarious moments.. He’s missed Oscar and Daddy though. Here are some of those moments…

On the train there was a man blowing his nose and laughing to himself and Joshua looks at him and says, ‘what’s that?!’ a good few times. Mummy replies, ‘oh he’s just blowing his nose, etc..’ He loves that question at the moment.

At another point on the train he takes a big sniff and declares ‘poo! I can smell poo.’ I was quite impressed. It was the cow manure in the fields. Clever boy.

Now we’re at home and the boy next door but one makes unusual noises (he’s sen) and so Joshua mimics him back like they’re having their own conversation. Haha! 😳

Russell’s April 2016

April 29th, 2016

I haven’t written a blog/posted photos in quite a while so thought I’d do a little overview…

April already wow wee .. Just trying to organise my 30th birthday party and starting to become a bit panicked because we’re heading towards May! We’ve had plenty of scarlet fever, coughs, colds and chicken pox so far this year and our biggest decision/prayer point at the moment is whether to home school Oscar for a couple of years!? To be decided…

Oscar adventures recently *still loving climbing and gymnastic activities. *improving lots on his computer games and iPad (although that’s limited by mummy to an hour a day unless we’re on a long car journey/need it as our back up.) *getting changed by himself and often getting ready by the door before Mummy and Daddy! *chatting lots and asking lots of why questions-We both love seeing how he is learning and working things out.

Joshua adventures recently *becoming cheeky and funny. He’s understanding different social clues, e.g. That if he does something funny, we laugh and he repeats. *loves climbing, running and playing with balls still. *starting to become independent with his play i.e having his own stories and what seems like more purpose to his actions (although children have purpose from babies.) *putting 2/3 words together to make a sentence and asking ‘what’s that?!’ lots.

Disneyland 2015

November 17th, 2015

We all went to Disneyland Paris for my birthday. Nan-Nan and Aunty Sarah joined us, and Oscar especially loved playing lego with Nan-Nan!

We got on lots of rides, and everyone did a great job of queuing.

We had an extra special breakfast, with Mickey Mouse, Tigger, and friends dropping in to say “Hi”, and play with Oscar’s toys. Read the rest of this entry »
