Cheeky kids…

By Matt

Angus was helping mum shovel a load of wood chips that had been delivered to their front verge. He was moving them via his toy tip truck and unloading them over the front fence. He then parked his truck on the front fence and said:

Angus: “Grandma you need to watch the truck for me

Grandma: “Why do I need to watch it”

Angus: “Cause some cheeky kid might come along and wreck it and then I”ll have to start all over again.

 

Wonder where he got that idea from?

It’s fire time again!

By Matt

The local fire station had an open day today and Angus was all over it. The imaginary drama was palpable as he played with the other kids at least seven major fires were attended in the forty minutes we were present.

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the hallway… I was zapped with fricken layzorz by a mini Iron Man!

That’s one powerful drink!

By Matt

We all know that feeling we sometimes get… that tickle in the throat when a fizzy drink is swallowed the wrong way… right? Well about five minutes ago we were told the technical term for that very thing.

Angus looks at us with mild concern, places his drink back up on the counter and says,

“I won’t drink any more of that lemonade ok guys because it’s destructing my throat!”

Swimming lessons

By Matt

The lad has been making great progress with his swimming lessons. We’re all very proud of the effort he’s putting in and the attitude he has to learning.

Here’s a couple of clips showing how he’s going. Check out the size of the grin!

Don’t let it happen again!

By Matt

Strapping the young wriggling man into the car seat Grandma accidentally pulled the strap directly onto his skin.

Ouch was the comment.

Grandma then pinched his clothing in the buckle as I was trying to click it in.

Another ouch, and apologies from Grandma,

a brief sigh and then

“If this happens again Grandma we’ll be talking smacks”

 

You really couldn’t make this stuff up.

Domestic dilemmas…

By Matt

Walking down the hall today and Angus is finishing up on the loo. He’s changing the toilet roll so I tell him what a good boy he is.

He turns to me shaking his head and says “I just can’t believe how much toilet paper I’m going through Dad.”

You couldn’t script this stuff better!

The Sandman

By Matt

Angus and I finally got around to some more work on his new sandpit yesterday. The hole has been dug, the frame and weedmat are in place, now we just had to transfer the sand from the trailer to the pit.

A technological conundrum…

By Matt

Question: What do you do if you’d like to play a puzzle game, but also watch some kids shows?

Solution: Borrow Dad’s phone so you can do both at once!
