Gappy Grins & Smiles

Biggie has officially joined the Gappy Grin Club. He lost the two top teeth yesterday and had a visit from the Tooth Fairy so he's all smiles.

Little Houdini has discovered it's very easy to slip out of his carseat-belt. It's terrifying glancing around to find him standing on his seat trying to open the car window. Trust me I am not smiling then. I will have to figure out a way to stop it before we drive anywhere else. It's my turn to drive the carpool so I'll have to do something in a minute.

Today at swimming they'll be learning survival techniques so Biggie has to wear clothes over his swimwear. Even shoes. It'll be good to watch and I am pleased they're doing it since we live near the sea.

Lastly, a reminder to me and all the mums who read for constant vigilance. I just found Little Guy choking and coughing having swallowed some spicy dried Chinese Five Spice. He was sitting on the bench almost a meter off the ground covered in red powder. How easily it could have been washing powder or some other dangerous chemical. I will be conducting a child-safety search straight after this.

    PS Yahoo is DOWN! How can I check, check, check my e-mails????????

    Sorry for overload of emotions ....:)

  3. It's really bad - yesterday he got up onto the bench and started pulling knives out of the knife block.

    I did manage to get an extra clip for his car seat.

    I also put one on his high chair - he couldn't get out so he threw all his dinner all over the dining room. He's past tipping - he aims to kill - usually his brother is the target
