Ready for Friday in record time (and feeling super cozy)

September 19, 2014
Today is PJ day so a quick brush of our teeth and the four of us were ready in our PJs go go to the office.

Today is PJ day so after breakfast it with just a quick brush of our teeth, the four of us were ready for the day.

It was a nice day to be going to the office in our PJs because it's raining so hard we can't even walk on our footpaths (it's between those two trees)

It was a nice day to be going to the office in our PJs because it’s raining really hard.  There has been so much rain, we can’t even walk on our footpaths because they’re flooded!  (The footpath around the lake runs between those two trees)

How can this not be a good idea?

"Ana, I don't think the tent on the table is a very good idea"

Bobby’s pet snake

September 17, 2014
Book at supermarket.

Tonight’s supermarket trip was especially fun when I spotted Dr Debbie in the floral section with a book about a snake.

It's about a boy who buys a pet snake, which turns out to be a bit disastrous.

Dr Debbie wrote the book and offered to read it to me.  It’s about a boy who buys a pet snake, which turns out to be a bit of a disastrous thing to do.

At the end is a bit of a dilemma.  We can email in some ideas about how we would solve the problem… although I'm still not sure how to do that.

At the end of the story the snake dilemma is unresolved. We can email Dr Debbie with ideas about what we’ll do but I’m still hatching my plan.  We bought one of the books so we can keep thinking of ideas.

The book is My Brother Bobby Bought a Pet Snake by Deborah Masterson.

We’re the solar system

September 16, 2014

Mum came up to school to do a presentation on Australia and my friend got to play being the sun shining on Houston (whilst it was dark in Australia) and then as the earth spun she was shining on Australia (whilst it was dark in Houston).  Since then, playing the solar system has been the new vogue for our pre-bed game.

Papi is the Earth's axis, Rafa is the moon and I am the sun.

But now I get to be the sun, Papi is the Earth’s rotation and Rafa is the moon.

There was some disagreement about who was supposed to orbit around whom.  I wanted to orbit really fast.  And so did Rafa.

Then Mum wanted to know what she should be.   I suggested she could be grass.  But for some reason she wanted to be something else.  After much discussion last night we ended up going to bed without Mum’s role resolved.

Tonight we settled on Mum being a star.  This is how you be a star.

But tonight we got it settled.  Mum is our star. We just had to teach her how to do it because we know more about being stars than she does.

Papi brushed my teeth tonight

Papi brushed my teeth tonight.

I think he needs more practice.

It's NOT funny, Papi!

That’s why you should go down slides on your bum!

September 14, 2014
We went to one of those places today where we could eat lunch and play in the one spot.

Rafa tried to go down the steepest slide head first.  His feet flipped over his head and he face planted.

Rafa tried to go down the steepest slide head first. His feet flipped over his head and he face planted.  A few tears and a Mummy cuddle later he was back in action but that’s always when Mum and Papi make the “we’re going now” call.

Honey tasting

September 13, 2014

We went to visit Mum whilst she was sampling honey at Phoenicia Specialty Foods today.

There was no way we were leaving without doing a bit of taste testing of our own.

iPad day

September 12, 2014

Papi thought I was running a bit of a temperature this morning.  Mum thought I seemed fine.  Until I puked in the car on the way to the office.  Then she realised that perhaps Papi may have had a point.  So I’m having an iPad day.

Carlos missed all the good shows.  He had to get the full wash treatment.

Patriot day

We might be too little to remember, but we're not too little to show respect.

Doggie introductions

September 10, 2014
We met the neighbours dog, Archie.

We were introduced to the neighbours dog, Archie.

We had to be careful where to pat him as he can be a bit shy.

Jason said we had to be careful where to pat him as he can be a bit shy.

And then I introduced Lucy to them.  She was feeling a little shy too but she licked Kelly's finger.
