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!

A good fly is a…

By Matt

Angus: Dad, Dad! I just saw a fly on my plate.

Dad: Did you shoo it away?

Angus: No.

Dad: Oh…

Angus: Dad, get the spray… it needs to be dead!

Being a boy on a farm…

By Matt

Dee was home with Angus the other day and he tells her he needs to do a wee.
Probably important for this story to understand he is obsessed with all things ‘fireman’ at the moment.
Dee: ”Ok, let’s go to the potty”
Angus: “No, I want to do it on the grass like daddy”
Dee: “Ok, lets go over to the fence”
Angus: “No, I just want to do it on the grass”
Dee: “Ok”
*Angus drops drawers and points the business end toward the grass*
Dee: “That’s the way, good boy”
Angus (now doing the biz): “Look Mum, it’s like a fire hose!”

Fire fighting…

By Matt

Popped in to Murrumbateman yesterday on the way home from Canberra as the RFS were having an open day. Words cannot express the size of the smile on the boy wonder’s face when he was allowed to climb in and around the trucks, operate a fire hose and don the fireman’s helmet!

Raarrr!!!

By Matt

Today at day-care Angus drew this awesome monster. As I came in to collect him the picture was thrust under my nose and I was regaled with tales of the scary monster with a very scary huuuuge ear. Yep, nothing scarier than a monster with a huge ear! :-)

Bedtime Angus style…

By Matt

After singing ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’ tonight Angus decides to launch into a couple of his own versions. Sung to the tune of the afore mentioned song…

 

Twinkle, twinkle Vegemite,
I don’t want you on my sandwich,
If you put it on my sandwich,
I will drop it on the ground and get dirt all over it,
Twinkle, twinkle Vegemite,
I don’t like you on my sandwich.

 

At this point I gan barely keep my giggles under control before he launches into another…

 

Twinkle, twinkle mud, mud, mud,
I don’t like you on my plate,
If you are on my plate I’ll drop you on people’s heads…
Now I’m laughing hysterically at which point Angus announces “You’re funny Daddy”.  You just can’t buy this sort of gold!
