Adventures in parenting

While trying to excitedly tear a crust of bread to get at the Marmite thereon, the garklet has just managed to slip and deliver a perfect backhand to his beaker of milk. There's now a trail of milk that stretches from him, across the table, over my right arm, along the floor, over ias's work bag, up the side of the arm chair, over the cushion, and down the other side - a good three metres.

We're either going to have to invest in tennis lessons, or some sort of magnetic device for holding the beaker down.

Edited to add: he's just done it *again*

Such are the super powers of children particularly small ones!

Third time is enemy action.


Jackie Chan watch out.

Roll on the better weather when you can thrown them outisde and you don't care how much of a mess they can make :)

The great outdoors contains many opportunities for eating dirt, alas.

Nothing wrong with a bit of dirt... it's what in it that worries me :)

He was using hose until a couple of months ago. We stopped because he worked out that, while he couldn't spill his drink, if he shook it hard while inverted, he could spray the contents over the table. Plain cups are far less fun (although he does like to dabble with his fingers).

It was the well-timed 'uh-oh!' as he watched me clearing up the mess that cracked me up.

This is probably why Rebecca got to drink water at home...


I am amused by the picture of you stopping to blog about this before actually clearing it up :-)

I cleared it up before posting. I had just hit submit before he did it a second time (with less milk than the first time), so I edited before clearing up the second time.

There's a lot to be said for comic timing.
