    Fear of noises no, but that was the age he started covering his ears if things were "too loud". It was also the age when the MGM Lion scared the shit out of him when it roared. Every. Time.

    I feel like "Ghostbusters" as a name of a dog is actually pretty awesome, especially if it's big enough to be a guard dog:

    When there's someone strange
    in your neighbourhood
    who you gonna call?
    Ghostbusters!

    When there's someone weird
    Walkin' in your house
    who you gonna call?
    Ghostbusters!

    We went down to visit our friends at their lifestyle block last weekend.

    They've got chickens and 2 cows themselves, their neighbours have cows and horses and even alpacas.

    The 2 cows on their property are named Bobby and Shorty.

    Bobby and Shorty are due for their visit to the butcher very soon.

    Cue my daughter asking me when she can go visit the BobbyShorty Cows again. On repeat.


    Oh also! Tuesday was my birthday and we didn't tell Ellie because it's not a big deal. Well one of her teachers must have said something to her last night because when we got home and I started making dinner, Ellie had a surprise for me.

    She came into the kitchen with a slice of her wooden birthday cake toy, complete with a candle in it, and she sang Happy Birthday to me and then made me blow out the candle.

    I about cried the whole rest of the way through making dinner.

    My son has become scared by a lot of things that didn't scare him before. But he's also an emotional terrorist and so I think he's lying half the time.

    DADDY IS NOT SCARY YOU LITTLE MONSTER!

    Preach, being scary is our super power. It's why "you want me to call your father" makes kids sit down and shut up.

    School pictures tomorrow!!

    Yes, I know. It's only day care, not actually school.

    But I care not!

    She is getting a school photo taken and then we can do a package for the holidays. And it also includes a class photo with all her friends and teachers. Great for a memory book.

    Her teachers and is have also agreed that she is only in nappies for sleep. She is clever enough to know hey body now.

    And every since telling her that decision, she's been in panties and has been using the toilet for everything. Praise God, blessed be.

    Our school pictures are getting ridiculous. Last year we paid something like £40 for two 6*8 prints and a couple of keyrings. This year there were 42 photos of him to choose from and a single print would've cost £16. A single digital copy to print your own cost £20, and you could buy the lot digitally for £75.

    There was one we wanted, one his Aunty wanted, one one set of Grandparents wanted and one the other set wanted, so we ended up just paying the £75 and now have a collection of 42 pictures, of which 38 of which are him grimacing and pulling his "cheese" face, with 4 nice candid ones which we've printed out. But we saved £5.

    And this was his last year of nursery. Goodness knows what it's going to be like once he's in school next year.

    The one about the fucking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego. They're all made of fucking lego.

    Heck, our oldest still watches most tv/movies with his hands over his ears just in case something scary happens. (I'm honestly not kidding here, it is super annoying if he misses quieter dialog as a result and has to ask what just happened). We also had a heck of a time at the cinema before Infinity War because while, sure, movies are loud in general, trailers tend to be a concentrated section of all the loudest bits of the movies and it's just an awful lot of volume in a row.

    My almost-8 year old still doesn't want to go down into the (finished) basement alone because of the sounds people make when they're walking above. Especially if it's to clean up or retrieve something.

    Of course if she's told she can watch TV or play video games, she's happy to go downstairs alone and it doesn't bother her at all...!

    Crumbs? My little preciouses leave whole damned pop tarts on the floor. When I demand to know which of them left three brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts on the floor both kids look at me and shrug, in unison. As if they practiced synchronizing the shrug. The sad part is I really can't tell if its the three year old or the twelve year old, because apparently they watch CSI shows while I'm at work and realized if they tear pieces out of the tart, rather than biting them, I won't be able to compare teeth marks like Matt Hooper.

    Now you're making me feel bad... knee pads and elbow pads? We're pretty firm on helmets, and the kids wear them 99% of the time.

    I never even thought about elbow/knee pads. Those actually would've helped with a fair number of scrapes the kids have had. Doh.
