Tuesday Goodness...

Today was a fun day!

I went for a power talk (or rather power talk that also involved walking, LOL) with Jen. Then came back settled Ari for a sleep and took a nice looooong (yes, I know there are water restrictions but our household uses far less water than the average 3 person household anyway) shower - O M Goodness, running water should be sold as a natural healer! I always feel so good after a dousing with negative ions!

Then at lunchtime Jayne brought Bryn home from creche, and dropped Sienna off for a playdate while she went off to her course for a few hours.

Bryn and Sienna just get along so well! It makes my day so much easier to have S here! They hung out, ate popcorn, jumped on the trampoline, watched a couple of cartoons, and showed me how they could hop on one foot (Sienna can, and Bryn can with the support of the coffee table, LOL)...

Then they showed me their best "lizard faces", LOL...


After that we all practice winking. I'm totally hopeless at winking, and Bryn (who has a black belt in winking) knows this, so I think it was mostly just an exercise in laughing at mum as she contorted her face in vain...




Then Bryn showed us "cross eyes"! I have to say, I've never seen a child do cross eyes like this (looking up), I've only ever seen child do it looking down their nose with their lids almost completely closed... Funny boy!


Then Rohana, who had picked my boys up from school, dropped by with her two lovelies so they could spend 1.5hrs here with Bryn and Sienna. The kids got into some drawing and "stickering" amongst other things...


Jayne picked Sienna up at 5.3o, then Dave came home at 5.40, and Rohana brought our big boys home at 6.10pm... Dave and I had a bit of a laugh between Jayne picking Sienna up and Rohana bringing our boys home, because we actually had four kids in the house, as per usual for that hour of the day, but the house was eerily Q U I E T as Rohana's kids and Bryn played quietly and Ari lolled about on my back... Once our boys got home, that soon changed though!

The boys came home with treasures from their pottery and drama classes!

Luey brought home a pot with a lid that he'd made and glazed in pottery!


Ok, I'm his mum, but HELLO, the boys is a natural!!! The lid is decorated with melted glass! This photo doesn't do it justice! I'm so proud to have my very first pot from my boy! My first real, lasting momento of his childhood!


And Erik brought home his first ever SCRIPT! He's so excited! He's playing the HEART THROB!!! That's my boy! So, he had to read me some of his lines!


And to finish the day off... This picture is actually from the weekend, because I couldn't catch one from tonight, but Bryn has mastered the use of a knife and fork! Erik and Luey were much older before they figured these things out, but as usual for a younger sibling, Bryn is in a huge hurry to catch up... He's growing up so fast!


Tuesdays are promising to be busy and wonderful!

The pics of Bryn and Sienna merit a drink warning! PMSL It's so cool seeing all of the kids I've met as 'little' babies/kids growing up into such cool little individuals - funny faces, art, pottery, drama and all!
