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!

They play so beautifully and are so quiet, concentrating and working and *sigh* I am such a good mother, how good they are. I shall pop inside and quickly pick up the hell mess that is the cutting and colouring task of the morning, just inside, shall hear them and soak up the sweet murmerings that are children happily and anxiously engaged in such a great activity, thought of by me, supermummy.

Oh bless, can hear they are having SUCH fun, the school holidays will fly by yat this rate, am happy, am perfect mother.

Actually, that sounds like a bit TOO much fun, what does Isaac mean " Ha! I harf spiderman harf hulk"? This is what he means

ACK! Am stupid stupid woman,( although don't lisp, why does it sound like I lisp, sound as stupid as I actually am) shouldn't be allowed to have so many children if I can't learn that they are NEVER sweet and safe left with paint and water and brushes and ........

hands and imagination and things.

Boys, have lots of them and am constantly taken in by the angelic faces and momentarily peaceful times ...and quite the dimmest mother in town. Am fun though and didn't even scream when they ( of course) grabbed every wall and door handle on the way to the bathroom, quite like boys, even if they are hellions and messy and LOUD.

Hope H fancies scrubbing down that front yard, looks like a homicide scene with bloody red handprints and dribbling red rivers from one end to the other.

Oh Helen. That is too funny! :)

My boys (yes I'm stopping them!) are pounding each other and saying, "Say ouch when it hurts!" What is bad is one is 14 and bigger than me and the other is a little 5 year old.

Well Helen, looking back, they will surely remember 'the time Mum let them paint themselve, and wasn't it glorious fun?!'

Oh dear sweet Helen - You have the patience of a saint, and I love that you stopped to document it all, not just with a camera, but on VIDEO nonetheless! You are indeed the mother of boys alright - can't say that I wouldn't have been feeling equally smug at my 'supermum' status watching them enjoy it so much, only to have it all come crashing down, as it always does. The half hulk/spiderman Isaac is adorable though! They honestly do sound like the British version of my kids ;). I think if they all got together the universe might explode - worth a shot though!
