I like to use big words sometimes.

I know I haven't been around much this last week, but this is what I've been dealing with.


Well, this photo isn't exactly what my kids look like, but it's a pretty damned good pictorial representation of what I've had to put up with.

That's where the "Big Words" part of the title comes in.

Pictorial representation... *sigh*
Words like that help keep me grounded.

Because they help me remember that there are words that big people use... words that don't always necessarily involve bodily functions.

And it sure as hell beats using words like wee's and poo's, and sit, and NO!, and Charlie, you stop that, right this minute!
And Emma, if you keep eating your boogers, I'm going to make you a booger sandwich.. do you hear me?
And OMG James! Get OUT of there!
We do NOT swim in the toilet!!


I shall return to my regularly scheduled blogging... and reading of blogs just as soon as I can.

When the school holidays are finished.

If I survive, that is.

OMG tHAT is cute! Great photos. Just keep the coffe pot on Kate and you'll survive...babbling possibly but survival is all you can ask for at this point!

Some days I wonder if I'll survive just my little one! He is a little terror. He has no fear and is into everything and climbs on top of the refrigerator!

Good luck dealing with your precious ones!

!!! Best of British Luck, as we say over here... looks like you might need it. You can always come over here and I'll make you a nice cup of tea and we can sit in the shade and chat about existentialism. SHAME that you are 24 hours away. Dammit. xxx

Good luck with the survival thing. I just threw the boys and dog outside so they'll stop making me crazy (yeah, like that's possible).

Dang, no wonder you're tired at the end of the day!

Gotta admit, funny pictures!

Wow, Katie! How do you do it?! You certainly get my vote for sainthood!

Somehow, I don't think you need kids to keep you grounded. You sound as earthy...umm... dirty... noo.. made from clay... no (that's one of the meanings of my son's name)... uhh..ohh... DOWN TO EARTH... as they come!

You don't even wanna know what I thought of when I saw all that brown in the picture right under the toilet. I almost went into cardiac arrest.
