First. The bath is broken. With water in it.
The design of these baths is a metal flip switch that seals or unseals the drain. It’s always been stiff, but last night it snapped off. I did at least have the bath first but now I have to worry about the Tiny Tyrant drowning herself all day as maintenance can’t get here before tomorrow.
Tiny Tyrant has discovered she loves drawing as much as her brother 😩
The poor trees!!!!
She then discovered a new game. It was called: Bring Mommy All The Hair Bows I Can Find
Then we all went up to the roof terrace so the kids could burn off some steam. TT met a little boy who was about 2 weeks older but she stood a head taller 🙄🙄🙄
However then #1 Son and I had some disagreements over tv viewing and dinner.
I’ll hold my hands up here and say the dinner one was on me – I forgot one of the things he hated. It devolved from there and led to a full meltdown with histrionics and statements from him that broke me.
However daddy came home and saved the day. Apologies were given and a peace offering of Cheerios was made (by me) and all was right with the world again.
After TT went to bed he did some drawing and produced this:
His own “instructions” (in the style of a Lego manual) numbered correctly (if backwardly in three cases) and, most importantly, where he realised he forgot something: he inserted it using arrows and numbers.
He didn’t scribble it out. He didn’t tear it up. He didn’t lose his temper.
This simple pen and paper doodle represents so much.
And then, he asked me to teach him how to knit!!!!!!
I’ve never been so happy in my life!!!!
I’m really hoping that we can find a yarn store in our travels tomorrow so that he can choose his own yarn himself but if not he can pick from my laptop screen.
I’m thinking circular needles with worsted/Aran weight yarn and single ply if I can get it. And no I won’t make him cast on or bind off 😂🤣😂🤣
