Discussion on dead people by Miss 8

At the table last night while having dinner - Miss 8 has let forth with "my friend at school was told by her Nana that there are dead people buried under the school & under the footpath".
So starts the discussion on where dead people are buried, how far down they are buried, why they get buried, what if they aren't really dead. And some of these questions were from Miss 5 & Master 3 - as they were eating their spaghetti too.
Then Miss 8 says "well, my friend is right because she can smell the skeletons".
Well, of course she must be right then :)

Today is Botox day for Miss 8-was 7. She has Cerebral Palsy so every 6 months we toddle off to the hospital for some injections into her calf muscles in both legs.
It's a pretty crap day. But she's getting braver each time we go. She barely has any medication and we don't have to hold her down to keep her still.
Not quite sure what she thinks of me when I insist we go, but I hope she'll look back in years to come and know it was all for the better.
Yucko & bla.
Sometimes, being a mum sux.

A Day At The Beach

The weather was meant to be terrible this weekend but today was lovely so off to the beach we headed.
The kids & Himself walked up & down the beach collecting every shell & cuttlefish they could find, while I lay on a blanket and read a book (my idea of a perfect afternoon in Perth).
Afterwards we wondered along the jetty to see what everyone was catching for their dinner, when Miss 5 asked us if we could get some more Hug Fish.
What's Hug Fish I hear you ask?
Well, when we finally got to the bottom of it - turns out a Hug Fish is a Cuttlefish. Or Cuddlefish as Miss 5 heard :)

A Nursery Rhyme I Learnt Today

Master 3 sings:
" Baa Baa Black Sheep, have you any spots?
Yes sir, yes sir, lots & lots
Some on my head & some on my tummy
And one on my bottom but that's not funny"
