All Quiet in the House (Finally)

They have finally subsided and crashed due to exhaustion. Earlier I went up to see how Thor was and ended up bringing down the three little ones as they had no intention at all to have their nap! Remember the last time that I left them to their own devices, they trashed Tara and Amritsar’s ‘precious things’. So we all had an afternoon of it and broke open a packet of shortbread. The girls were dropped off at three thirty on a slight sugar high as someone brought in sweets for everyone as there was a birthday in their class. Tara and Amritsar shared what was remaining, so by the time dinner was over they all stepped up a level and ran around like crazies until I said ‘I’ve had enough’ and ‘Early bedtime’ at six o’clock. To be honest, I was lucky to get back downstairs with my sanity still intact. There were some nappies we had with bananas printed on them. They all wanted to covet them as well as wear them, Thor with his pants on his head and Aaliyah stole a pair of Tara’s nickers from the washing dryer and ran around like Thor screaming like a lunatic. Tara insisted on watching a video on my phone from when she was around Aaliyah and Caleb’s age where she would repeat herself again and again with the same words. ‘I want a nanna, I want a nanna’ That is all she was whining. I will play it for you now.

This video doesn’t exist

She is so much more grown up now and they all laughed at the video (lots). It makes me realise the difference in behaviour in just these last two years in her – holy mother there is hope for the three little ones… we will get there. Just two more years of naughtiness…
