Bog blog and some climbing
Things I've learned from my children today.
Small children can do astonishing things in a very short space of time. There I was checking the spare rib recipe for the next step while Boy Three pottered. I looked up and this is what I saw. He was ever so pleased with himself.
Upwards is not always onwards. Boy Three loves to climb. Today I have removed him from the dining table, the top of the armchair in the bedroom, the shelves in the bathroom (he pushed the chair over to get a foot up), the bed (slightly ajar drawers as steps) and his brother's bed (it's a mid-sleeper up five steps).
Quiet and relative tidiness is over-rated. Boys One and Two are still at their dad's. Having a ball according to our nightly calls. Tomorrow they're off to learn to sail. When they first went off it was heavenly to have a slightly more orderly home and fewer mouths to feed/pants to wash, now, though, I'm over that. Time to come home Boys. Roll on Thursday.
