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!

Conversations in our home.

Isaac, being held in a tight headlock by Sophie, who was driven to distraction by his insane leaping and bounding and yelling ( oh the irony!)
" Oh that feels SO good!"

Isaac, " I have two bumps on my head, one here and one here, from Eli"
Elijah, " LOVE from Eli!"

Seth on being told that he may have a tortoise for his birthday.
" Ooh I am never ever going to forget how I feel right now for the rest of my life, I am so excited the back of my brain is tickling"

Isaac, 20 minutes into a play-date with Eli's friend Owen.
"WHY? Why would anyone want to do THIS? Having other peoples' kids here is not fun at all, shall we never do it again?" ( Inside head applause from me)

Elijah, sad because "Owen said he is never, EVER coming back to my house"
Me " and he is RIGHT because we are never, EVER inviting him again, be sure to tell him that next time he says that."

Elijah, after I had admonished Isaac for breaking wind yet again.
"that one was ME, YES! Great team work "

Me to Seth " Do you know how much I love you?"
Seth "Yes, for the past 2 weeks I do"
Me " What about before that?"
Seth " it was a living hell."

Me to H "these Capri's are SO comfortable, it's a shame you can't wear them and feel this good"
H " maybe not in public"

I might have to come back and add if and when I remember some more.
