Things I Know

Ha ha! I'm getting in early before all of you super quick Friday morning Know-it-alls have your post pumped out before me. You know who you are. Also Luke is on the super late shift tonight and my chances of getting near a computer before 10am are slim to none.

Happy Friday! Welcome to the Things I Know linkup. If you want to join in write a Things I Know on your blog including a link back to this post an then add your link below-easy!

Here is what I know this week-

-parents of children the same ages as yours understand completely when a playdate is ended abruptly because of a cranky toddler

-I love attending blogger events! Thanks to Brand meets Blog for organizing and inviting me to the Melbourne Museum-the girls and I had a great day.

-people will give you dirty looks when your 3 year old refuses to wear a jumper outside on a 4 degree day.

-be careful what you say around your kids or every time you brake a little hard in the car your 2 year old will say "shit" because she thinks that is what always comes next.

-poo, bum, fart and wee. If you are three years old you are laughing your ass off right now. I'm here all week, try the fish.

-If you have no relevant photos for this weeks post you might just pop in a cute one from the archive-I can't believe this baby is about to turn FOUR. My heart.

-it can be easy to dwell on the negatives sometimes and forget how lovely your kids really are.

-it's nice to get an award! Thanks to Our Tiny Dancer for giving me one :)

-I'm really looking forward to catching up with everyone at the Nuffnang Blogopolis next month-and I'm especially grateful to Eco Toys for sponsoring me to go!

So what do you know??

Funny post. Once I turned a corner hard and sent the takeaway Chinese flying to get wedged between the passenger seat and door. I pulled over sand straightened it all up. As we were driving off Archie (three at the time) made me realise what I must have said - he was singing fuck fuck fuck to some nursery rhyme I can't quite remember now.

I hear you, I can never get my daughter to put many clothes on, I'm sure everyone things I am a really bad parent.

Kate said...

Awww baby Willow! Never nearly four, shocking!

Deborah said...

I too get those dirty looks when my children have near-to-nothing on in the freezing outdoors.

Love love love baby Willow pic, and especially in love with her cherry dress!!!!

Daisy, Roo and Two said...

LOL! Graet post! Love the 2 year old as you brake!

Grace said...

I love that one with the co-relation to braking and the word "shit" LOL.
I have to keep reminding myself that it won't be long until the boys catch on if I don't do something about my potty mouth...*groan*
Congrats on getting sponsored !
Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend x

Shae, stopping by from Owlet, and found this lovely link up and your funny, funny words!

Love "try the fish"—it's something my husband says too, so you made my smile even bigger.

And I know about dwelling on the negatives. Sometimes they're like big dumpers, aren't they? Curling over and turning you upside down and stuffing your swimmers and nose with sand. Yeah, it's good to get out, and focus on the Goodness instead.

Thank you for your words, and for the connection, Shae :)

Such a cute photo :)

For someone who used to swear a lot, I toned down and I've been really good with the kids. Still... To every driver tooting their horn Sofia will say "what an idiot" and to her brother "go away Lucas, Cristo Santo!" so I learnt that swearing in another language makes no difference to the kids, they'll repeat it anyway ;)
