Half-term

Minion chocolate flakes on bread and butter


colouring in , chocolate milk , Ceebebies , banana yoghurt and wooden frogs


 Monkey Town , whirling robots and singing dinosaurs , chocolate sauce , "Can you lick your elbows ?",  Bagels and Beans' make-your-own hot chocolate and topping it with squirty whipped cream , a red rabbit who's apparently really a bear


 Knock Knock jokes , halbardiers and crossbows , theocracies and Ghengis Khan , the Apollo programme and how to make cheese , glowing smiles and roaring tantrums , Animal Inside Out  at the Natuur Museum , "Why-ee ?", Discovery Science , the wooden elephant on wheels and a Dalek jumper , and "I must admit Granny , you have a very nice flat ".

Which is now a rather empty flat , minus two little boys aged 8 and 3 and their parents .

Grand children do have a way of livening things up don't they?

I love it! All those details, and especially, "I have to admit . . . " We're looking after two of ours this weekend and I anticipate being exhausted Monday morning (the 7-month-old is not sleeping well at nigh and Mom and Dad need a break; almost-3-year-old sister may get some special time on her own with her parents, but we expect to have her for a good portion as well) -- exhausted but very content. . . and the house will feel so very quiet when they've gone.

How lovely - except for the saying goodbye part. I'm so looking forward to new grand baby's first visit to us....

What a great summary. We are growing into this phase and hoping we have enough stamina for it! Your flat sounds like a lot of fun. Frances: Hi! We are wondering whether we can cope with an overnighter for a non-sleeping baby. Her parents are at their wits' end. She doesn't even nap for more than half and hour.
