For this week…

I am thankful for:


Miss 11: Mum, may I have my new phone back please?  I washed up.
Me: I believe you need to earn it back hon, one session of washing up isn’t going to cut it.
Miss 11: *sigh* How much do I HAVE to do?
Me: Well perhaps you will need to earn the value of it so you can appreciate it.  What do you think?
Miss 11: *frowns* I think that sucks.
Master seven: I think you’re gonna be working FOR… EVER! :-P


A close family friend had a mishap whilst mowing a steep driveway early this week and had to spend a few nights in hospital and undergo some surgery on his head to insert a plate and some screws.
Master seven: Did the hospital have to peel his skin back to put them in?  That would be rather difficult wouldn’t it?  I hope he doesn’t do it again. :-o


Me: Who was cleaning this bit of the wall?
Master five: Not me.
Me: I thought this was part of your area?
Master five: Nah, I was waiting for the others to meet me in the middle… 8-O

Problem solving.

Master seven: Can I come home on Monday Mum?
Me: Sure, we’ll need to talk to Dad on Friday about that.
Master seven: Okay.  *to his sister* I’m coming home on Monday.
Miss 11: Then you’ll be missing out on Movie World on Tuesday.
Master seven: Darn it.
Master seven: Mum, can I come home on… umm… Wednesday?
Me: Sure but how about we make sure Dad is okay with that first?
Master seven: If you want but I’ll be home Wednesday anyway. 8-)

Our youngest.

Master five: In four days, I’m going to be SIX!
Me: I’m not sure about that.
Master five: Of course you are, you were there!
Me: But I might not remember…
Master five: Doesn’t matter, I’m still having that birthday. :-?
