In Memoriam 

Jai received this movie as an early Xmas present last week for being so good one morning.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1998) 

We’ve watched it together six times since! 

Even though he has watched it so many times, he still has a little cry when Rudolph runs away because he is teased for having a red nose.

Interesting fact: The voice of Mrs Claus is the late Debbie Reynolds

Gotta laugh and be impressed by the ingenuity of Jai, now 4.5yo.

Yesterday he caught five seconds of a trailer for ‘Star Wars Rogue One’ on my laptop. He loved it!

As I turned it on this morning I heard this voice at my feet say “I Want to see that movie I saw yesterday!”

“Hmmm. If your mother says yes, OK.”

He sprints for the bedroom.

I hear him ask “Mummy, can I watch that movie?”, but not the response.

He sprints back to me.

“Mummy said yes.”

“Oh, did she?” I see Sarah down the corridor “… Mummy said you could watch the movie? Did you get a hand-shake contract?”

“A what?”

“A hand shake contract. Repeat after me, hand shake contract. You are going to need it!”

“Ok!” He sprints down the corridor again, and I hear most of the conversation. I see him shake hands with his mother!

“Big mistake Mummy. Did you ask which movie he wants to see?”

“Um, no.” We were speaking down the corridor, unable to see each other, but I know she is not smiling.

“And now he has a contract. Binding in a family court of law. I watched the transaction. ROGUE ONE FOR EVERY ONE!”

“Oh, no. Nope, not gonna happen.”

Sigh. Poor little fellow. His first business transaction. Thankfully billionaires of the planet say that failure is important to succeed.

Xmas on Twitter

My boys get mentioned on Twitter a lot, mostly in jest, occasionally in exasperation, yet mostly because of their hilarious antics.

Here are all their Xmas moments throughout December 2016:

Sigh. I am sure there will be more before NYE. Watch out for them on my twitter.

Xtremes of Xmas 

​Imagine the scene.

Jai had managed to climb up onto the kid-proof-fence around the Xmas tree in the lounge room. 

When I spotted the 4yo, I blurted his full name across the room.

As his activities were meant to be unnoticed by his mother and I, the look of terror turned from  “I’ve been spotted!” to “I am falling!” 

Which he did. Fell end-over-end, collapsing heavily into the Xmas tree.

Sigh. 

His dignity took a major hit, but no cuts were taken.

Wheras tree branches have been returned to pine-formation. Lights entwine tree and flashing  again. Most of the baubles found and repositioned higher to stop his 2yo brother from eating them…
