Wouldn'y this be the nicest place to hang out? ....the prettiest little 'cup of tea' nook.
Little one is most indignant as the big boy and I are just hanging out together today. He has permission from school to have the day off as: 1. They are absolutely exhausted from 4 days without decent sleep and 2. The second round of boys have headed off for 4 days and there is no-one at school to teach the boys! My son does want to attend on Friday though, "just so I look responsible Mum". Please don't tell me this is going to end when he hits his teens. He's such a joy in my life. Even when he was a little tike, I used to look at him and think, "you've been here before mate, you're just too wise".
Little one was beside himself at the big brother homecoming. He first had to tell his brother, "I was even still crying about you last night as I was watching a DVD of you performing in your Year Two Play". Oh the melodramatics.... he can turn it on alright. He sat there the night before last with a box of tissues, watching videos of his brother. Hilarious! One's an optimist and one's a pessimist. Go figure!
Readers, you were right,my boy did not shower for 4 days... there were no showers..... complete mortifcation!!!!. So yes, Dettol bath and foot scrub...... you should have seen the water! Fresh and clean, he sat down to his favourite meal (table set by little one, complete with candle and flower) and raved about how nice the wooden floors felt under his feet. Nothing like roughing it to appreciate the comforts of home.
So this mother is happy as all her chickens are home again. Now for the washing. I just left it in a festering pile in the garage last night....to do now!
