A crazy enough day, what with our nanny off and John at work. Overall the not so famous five have been well behaved, just the occasional flash point or two from each and every one of them.
Remus has been hiding mostly! He has restarted daytime snoozing on our bed. I think in order to avoid the children and their various antics. He knows he’s not allowed, but I’ve kind of turned a blind eye due to the fact that Christmas is almost upon us.
One of Thor’s gifts was an art set. And this afternoon they each in turn painted a landscape scene. You might remember that painting is generally banned from the house due to a couple of incidents! The main one being Tara and Thor stripping off and covering their bodies in hand painting. Aaliyah and Caleb were thankfully just face painted.
Thor’s pile of presents is slowly diminishing as things get opened, broken and binned! I don’t know how they manage to accomplish the sheer volume of destruction.
The living room is really looking Christmasy now, though I held off from playing Christmas music today, giving Thor a final feeling of birthday spirit.
This afternoon they all kept singing ‘two more sleeps to go’. That is, until tomorrow, when as you know, it will be ‘one more sleep to go’!
John due home at 6pm. So, I am sure the tempo will be raised for the final witching hour. But they are all settled for now at least.
