I dunno what to write anymore! Kids keep me busy. Work keeps me busy. By the time I think I should write something, in truth I can’t be bothered. Life’s just as it was…we’re all ticking along nicely. Rich got promoted so that’s good news. I got my boob bit at work…that’s funny news I suppose. Kids are doing good in school. Josh is still struggling with writing but they’re on top of it…they’ve started letting him dictate but he gets annoyed as the program struggles to recognise his weird UK/US accent, bless him.
Alex is doing grand altho not always his homework lol. Got himself a detention this week and an ear bashing. Too far to go home so me and Josh headed to Starbucks to really rub salt in too-Joshie made sure of that-they both love a frappucino. But like I’m gonna worry about a detention…seriously? He’s 10 and pretty much an angel so hopefully he’s learned a valuable lesson about doing homework before it’s due or miss out on coffee.
We’re all binge watching BeastMaster…a mental ninja warrior type show on Netflix. Josh is especially loving it (I’m typing this as it’s on so draw your own conclusions on that) but he’s fabulous to watch when he gets animated. The obstacle course is crazy hard but Josh just calls them out like they’re pathetic weak muppets…he’d make a good drill instructor that’s for sure! But he loved our trip to the local school’s playground today where we were all in training for the BeastMaster course apparently 😂
Anyway, that’s about all…spring break now so sure we’ll have some adventure even if it’s just to the store. I’ve not been writing down little man’s pearlers although he keeps them coming…I’ll try harder. Here’s what I did write down…he cracks me up…enjoy and keep well.
When I made the mistake of asking if the toy he was trying to convince me to buy in the store was really a necessity… “You’re a teacher’s helper but you don’t know the difference between a want and a need?”
Josh: Guess what?
Josh: I’m not talking to you. I’m talking to Loki 🐕
Buying a PS4 with Call of Duty included. The store clerk asks if this is the model we want
“Yes! But do you have any other more age appropriate games?”
Talking to Aunty Leigh on skype and Joshie walks in to the kitchen
Me: Hey Joshie! Have you got anything to say to Aunty Leigh?
Joshie: not really! (And continues searching through the fridge)
Me and aunty Leigh start giggling as we’d just been discussing his bluntness
Joshie: Erm actually did you know there’s actually a 0.00012 percent…(trails off)
Me: Joshie? 0.00012 percent of what?
Joshie: percent chance I have anything I want to talk about with her!
😂😂😂 She knows he loves her 😂😂
At the park and I’ve been pushing him on the swing for 5 or so minutes so I tell him he’s gotta learn himself, that my arm’s tired. “You got 2 arms…just use the other one!”
