My oh so clever children.

The girls are learning new things every day. This week Grace has learnt to open the back gate and run as fast as she can. She has also learnt to climb on the couch and open the china cabinet and get out my Grandmother's good china while swinging from the corner of it. Grace also learnt that the tops of bbq's are very hot.
Amelia has learnt to watch and follow her sister and she has learnt to scream and scream to get her own way. They have also learnt to hide and be very quiet so I can't find them. I feel weak.
My wonderful cousin Sue sent me a quote that made me laugh - 'Raising kids is like being pecked to death by a duck'
Another dog and giraffe.

I think I need to put that quote on a sign and hang it by my bed. Then every night as I'm falling asleep I'll know why I'm so tired.

That quote just says it all! lmao!

jojo* - sign near my bed? I think I should tattoo it to my forehead...it would save a lot of explaining for a multitude of things!
