The Hills

What are these small hills on the side of my foot Mum?
They're your ankles small dear one.
They're nice aren't they.
Yes, you have lovely ankles Pudding.
(followed by the construction of gingerbread people who apparently have no ankles~sad revelation)

Kid Knievel

Kid Knievel left his stunt cycle at home today to grace us with his delightful boyish presence.
The girls awoke with great anticipation that their best boy buddy was coming to spend a day with us and they were most excited to try out their inner tomboy.

After a morning of fart jokes, talking up the Daddy mans "most awesome and very huge motorbike" (The Kid corrected them that a little old moped was indeed NOT a motorbike) and one failed attempt at a stand up pee, the house erupted in squeals  roars of joy  when the unanimous decision was made to have some down time and watch a movie.

Three girls and one boy settle down on meticulously arranged blankets, cushions and pillows and I enjoyed so much hitting the play button that I almost missed Kid Knievel's adorable comment that, "This is just like lying in my bed, but with three big teddies." Awwww.

Only a few more years of this sweet  innocence left until The Kid will be bringing a stick with him when he visits to keep the sisters at bay..gosh what an interesting time lies ahead!!

P.S The stand up pee thing didn't happen, but I did hear you gasp :)

Sticking youre tounge through the hole

Never one to shy away from the camera,
I asked pudding to smile and show the world her beautiful gappy teeth. I love these teeth.
Every time I see her smile I think that one day this sight might be lost to my memories, will they be gone when her adult teeth come through? I don't know...but she'll be FOUR very soon and I wonder what the future holds for this theatrical, show stopping, adult conversation holding sparkling little girl of mine.

A What??

Our Cheesecake designed this spiffy Nose Protector, which also moonlights as a Stink Detector and sometime Egg Collector.

Such a delicate flower our girl.

Over this evenings desert of frozen yogurt our Mudpie "Muddy" informs us that her sister Pudding is eating "Flamingo" flavor.
We looked at each other, the Daddy man and I, and we both came very close to wetting our selves.
I'm sorry. I don't mean with a glass of water either.
After a subtle correction ( God? Would it be cruel to send them out into the big wide world without correcting them?) and giggles all round, we tried the Flamingo flavour and collectively decided that yes. Mango was indeed the tastiest treat tonight.

I wish...

I wish I had started keeping record of the pearls of wisdom that roll off the tongues of my 4 girls. Lucky for Cookie(who cannot speak yet)(because she's a baby) her devoted mother will endeavour to blog all her future funnies for future embarrassment. Boyfriends of the future(like when theres flying cars) be warned, we laugh out loud in this family and AT each other so harden up lads!
Anywho, Miss Mudpie has started kindergarten this week. She tags along with Miss Cheesecake and is most excited when completing her homework and reading is especially enthralling with books like yesterdays, called "Cap". Hmm. Said book has one word on each page and each word rhymes with cap. Is this really a book? Is this literature? I'm thinking its a poem Muddy. Sorry Mud. But its verse Yeah? Maybe this sounds a little unrealistic but I believe my girl could tackle this 'learning to read' thing head on. I want to see at least "The cat in the hat" or perhaps send a little Mem Fox home in the reading folder?
Its not that I have such high expectations of our Muddy Mudpie but rather her teacher, her school; no the Australian department of Education. Come on Australia, give our Kindy kids a challenge.
Anyway, enough rant.
The second book Mudpie brought home was called "Clown". A whole 2 letters longer per word than cap. Impressive yeah? It went a little something like this,
clown, crown, town, frown. That was a whole book. Right there, the whole damn book (4 WORDS!) So, I ask Muddy to tell me the words and she was stuck on frown. So I told her to look at the picture of the woman furrowing her brow ferociously and tell me a word that sound like clown. She says 'angry'. Try again Muddy, look it starts with an 'F'.
