Bryn's Bird Boy Buggary Begins...

You can recongise a Bird boy by the charming way he bats his long lashes at you on a bus or a train, smiling coyly, but never dropping his gaze.

You can recognise him by the glint in his eye as he plans and then executes his dasterdly deeds, mostly aimed at amusing himself, but if they amuse others then bonus points are awarded on the ledger...

You can recognise him by his angelic face, that butter wouldn't melt expression on his gorgeous face, that lulls you into a deeply disturbing sense of security that you seem to be endlessly kicking yourself for letting yourself be tricked into.

Ah, yes, Bird Boy Buggary is legendary!

Bryn has recently made it clear that he is well and truly a Bird boy! He has honed his button pushing skills with his brothers and had Erik in tears the other day because he refuses to stop trying to hug Erik while Erik was desperately trying to create his latest drawing masterpiece.

Bryn also has Luey's number and can entice Luey into a game of round the dining table chasies at any hour of the day or night.

Unfortunatey, while Luey quite enjoys have yet another silly buggar to play with, he hasn't figured out where Bryn's off button is, and so often finds himself dealing with more Bird boy energy than even he can handle...

In true Bird boy fashion, today Bryn got his hands on the margine tub (AGAIN, he does this regularly), and had already painted the coffee table and the floor with enjoy marg to create an indoor slip and slide!

All this right under my nose! I was sitting at the dining table, just a metre away. Bryn stelth was amazing, I could have sworn he was still playing in his corner with his bus... Even as he slipped and slid across the floor, I was oblivious!

I finally looked up from my Word file, and saw that characteristic fertive glance out the corner of my eye and my stomach SANK... Once Bryn realised the game was up, he just giggled like a mad man, and slid back and forth over his greasy spot on the floor with spectacular balance (he didn't get that from me or from Dave, that's for sure!)...

Between swearing under my breath and trying very hard not to just burst out laughing, I managed a few pics before cleaning him up with the trusty bum wipes!

Ah, yes, and so it begins...

So THAT is where L got that idea from...... we've had the slip-n-slide here too.

We've also had the "markers all over everything", the "honeyjar emptied over everything including La who thought it was YUMMY", the "mayo discovered in the coat pocket 3 days later", the "ranch dressing under the sink cupboard" etc etc etc. Gotta love it! ;-p

LOL :-) Reminds me of the time Mike's neices gave the couch a makeover with a whole two bottles of
mums nailpolish.

LOL, and I thought Erik and Luey and a whole tin of treacle on the brand new couch was bad...
