Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

The boys brain amazes me.

Seth's that is. He's a mini H, a walking encyclopedia. Impressive when H spouts some bizarre piece of information that has been hidden until needed but when a 5 year old does it....mindblowing!
H and I were talking tonight about grandpa, who at last is talking about retiring. He said tonight that he wants to retire and see Europe.
" Hey," said Seth ( the eavesdropper) "Ittakes 6 hours to get to France on the ferry, he should do that and then go to Germany and Italy too" HE then went on to talk about the chunnel, flying and the hovercraft as alternative ways to get to France. How does such a little head hold such information, as well as the veriatble zoologist catalogue that is held in there. At 3 he came to us puzzled and said " I've been thinking, a chameleon really should be in the primate family because it has thumbs"

I used to worry that he would be a freaky anorak wearing boy as he grew up but already he is so funny, such fun to be around and is touchingly in love with soft toys ( although he checks to see if they have been made so that they are anatomically correct and if a stuffed Labrador has the wrong kind of ears for example he won't go near it!!)HE joins in with his friends games more now and is as up for a lavatorial conversation and farting noises as any 5 year old boy.
He can now read anything you put in front of him, still totally disinterested in stories, unless they are read to him, loves reference books, animal encyclopedias and the guiness book of records. He loves to whip through puzzle books and writing exercises and draws beautifully.

His mouth is too old for his body too...he is a master at answering back and there are times the thought of him being a teenage makes my blood run cold. He is definately Howard's son and they can oft be found discussing photocynthesis and such topics.

I feel an outsider many days and am glad I have my equally bright but less judgemental Isaac, who loves me even if I am a bit dim and of course Elijah Henry, my one out of 6 totally 2 year old with no bizarre tendancies, no special needs and a glorious goofy grin, who won't give up his nappies for all the bribes in Britain and says they are nice and warm and LEAVE IT ON....he doesn't want to wee in the toilet or on a potty, he likes his nappies. Thankyou.
Life is good , it takes 6 hours to get to France unless we get on a hovercraft which only takes about 45 minutes and I gave THAT piece of information out because I have done it,been on it.... ha......beat that brainy boy!

And a P.S....I took this today, look at how tall the Jordan boy is! I'm impressed that he always remembers to duck when he walks through this doorway!!

My gosh, that Seth is something else! Of course he is brilliant and you can't help but love him to pieces!
He and Duncan would get along fabulously you know.
Duncan told me the other day that cars could go as fast as they want on the Autobahn. even 800(km/hr) which by the way is how fast an airplane goes.
Love these boys!
And Holy Growth Hormones on Jordan!
Good job on your weight loss too Helen - You are doing so amazing!!!

He's amazing in every way. I hope to meet him someday even if he probably won't talk to or even look at me.

Again Dear Helen, your children are beautiful and so gifted.

I just now read your comment on my blog. I also wanted to email you but I dont have your address so I'll just say it here. I took those offensive pictures and comments down DRAG KING and also Aunt Pookies picture and most of the videos. I was just going through a moment down memory lane with Pookie. Sorry if anything offended you. Also I wrote "Revelation", and its located lower down in the blog because I started it and didnt finish it and it posted farther down. You dont have to go read it or anything, but I was addressing the night I forgave Yann at the awards. I know you have so much to read already. I was just saying...I appreciate your comments, and I am so way not worthy of such generosity cause mostly I've been a sorry man. But I do want to concentrate on just the children and reading and writing for the rest of my life.Actually yes, Dale is my doctor and he lives with me. Right now he is in Atlanta because his mother has pneumonia. But I am getting linked to a health care center here in this area. Thank you so much for your attention and well wishes! Kiss King

I JUST TEASE THE OLD QUEEN!
