Our Place

Our house is awesome.
We can't quite believe we live here.
This is the view looking out the front window...
 across the back...

down the side...

And these fellows come and visit every day...

and this little chap sits proprietarily on the washing line every morning, just to make sure things are as they should be.

We really like this house. JMB

Our 2yo has good fine motor skills. This is partly because he loves to know how things work and spends ages experimenting with putting things into things and pulling things apart. And partly because he adores trains of any sort and building train tracks requires fine motor skills, and so his get a fairly solid workout because he is committed to building track most days of the week.

One night when he decided to stay up until after 9pm, very quietly in his room (we stupidly thought he was asleep because he was quiet!), he decided to play with the almost full jar of sudocrem. He did it meticulously. He lathered the entire tallboy, carefully going around only the edges of each handle. He then 'coloured in' the front of the tall boy, so that it was all symetrical. And finally he did his hands and his feet. Only his hands and his feet, completely.

Here he is, so tired he's almost drunk, with the incriminating evidence.  And not a whisker of an apology anywhere. JMB
