Things I know

Welcome to the Things I Know linkup! Why don't you share what you know this week?

-I love Twitter, but we need to have an open relationship

-When the kids come running in screaming "Mum! There's a HUUUUGE spider" don't panic until you see what they class as huge.

-Spiders the size of a grain of rice are OK for this arachnophobe to deal with. See above point.

-Don't throw out scraps of paper from the toy room without asking. You might have just "ruined everything" by throwing out a vital piece of a letter to Barbie

-To a child on the verge of reading opportunities to learn literacy skills are everywhere!

-the imagination of a child know no bounds and never ceases to delight me. See "unicorn horn" above.

-Moral superiority should not extend to toys. My girls get have had so much joy and many hours of play out of "plastic crap" that some of my hippy-la-la peers might look down their nose at.

-Not attaching moral superiority to food, toys, TV and the like can be hard for this hippy-la-la!

-It's not easy being the third child born in quick succession as your Mama might not have the Womens Weekly style cake planned weeks in advance for your upcoming 2nd birthday like she did with the others.

"Hippy-la-la peers" is the best description I've ever heard. Ever.

The Unicorn horn is fantastic and I agree with Iggy, "hippy la la peers" is the best description!

Plastic cr@p & 'Duplo' included is good at keeping 4yr old boys happy as is rope.

I am a bit the same with spiders.

Love the Unicorn horn. :)

I find plastic crap is great for playing in the backyard because I don't mind if it gets broken - same for in the bathtub :D

Best bday cake I've ever seen was at one of Nic's kids parties (planning with kids) where she unmolded a whole tub of vanilla icecream onto a plate and then decorated it (I think it was a rocket ship in food colouring...you will have to check the details with her).
Such a huge success - the kids loved it...and ate it!!
Hope she has a great bday :-)

What i do not realize is in truth how you're now not actually a lot more well-appreciated than you might be right now. You're very intelligent.
You realize therefore considerably relating to
this subject, made me in my view consider it from so many various angles.

Its like men and women aren't interested unless it's something to accomplish
with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. At all times care for it up!
