Stuff and Nonesense...

The other night, about two hours after the boys went to bed, Erik comes out to the loungeroom rubbing his eyes and mumbling something about Bryn being in his bed... We went in to investigate and found this...

Bryn has obviously gotten up half asleep - usually he comes out to get a drink of milk and then go back to bed - and made it as far as Erik's bed (10 cm away) before crashing out...

I've decided Ari will be JUST FINE while I'm in hospital... He discovered Bryn's "pimple" ball...




In preparation for Mum coming to visit, Dave excavated our study (Bryn informs me it's "Dad's Study" and when probed further on the topic, further informs me that I don't have my own room in this house...) and found this set of Ikea drawers that I masacred the construction of a few months ago (before Ari was born)... Dave was set to pack them into the garage, but not wanting to see YET ANOTHER basically functional item thrust into the great vacuous void of the garage - never to be seen or heard of again - I offered it to the boys. Then to Dave's endless horror, I encouraged Erik's idea of decorating the shelves themselves...


They spent a relatively quiet (for them) hour or so doing this...


This is Bryn's side (he also owns the bottom drawer)...


Luey's side...


Erik's top...

Each boy also decorated their own drawer, though I heard Erik helping Luey quite a bit :)...

I think that's brilliant! Your boys clearly are little creative ones.

Teenagers and the failing parent...
