Remus is a moon

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Copy-pasted from AB coz I'm lazy.

Very slightly creeped out by Tao razz

An artist on Art is Murder submitted this image a day or so ago (I've lost track).  Tao spotted it and proclaimed it a "big tarp wemus!" I got the big and sharp and asked him to repeat the last word a few times.  He kept repeating the sentence.  So I said, "A big sharp remus?"

"Yes!" he says in his cute matter of fact voice.

"What's a remus?"

"Dat!" while pointing to the artwork in question.

Sick kids

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Both of them.

Ruan, not so bad aside from a bad habit of leaking all over the place.

Tao, well. As well as the runs, the cyst on his eye is infected and he's getting a double whack for it, both an eye cream and oral antibiotics. He has a rash on his chest and is listless and lethargic.

Yesterday the house was covered in bicarb. I vacuumed it up only a couple of places hadn't completely finished soaking and drying. Eww.

I need some heavy duty carpet cleaner. Less carpet would be wonderful too.

On the upside, Tao seems to have cottoned on to this toilet training thing, and awesome timing.

Appointment with specialist tomorrow to get the cyst removed.

I suck at blogging.

Unschooly crap

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

You can learn a lot from doing not much. As most people know, I do 3d. I seem to know bits of geometry, crap I never would have picked up at school, mainly coz it was in the higher level maths class and I suck at maths.

Currently I'm learning a little bit about Russian history (there's a doco on sometime in the next fortnight that might be helpful) and researching titanium alloys. Why? Roleplaying :P

Who says you need to go to school to get an education.

Tiny little bit...

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Tao is at that age where he's getting curious about bodies and observing fundamental differences about boys and girls, adults and children. Such as;

"Mummy has boobies, I don't have boobies, Daddy doesn't have boobies, Wuan doesn't have boobies, Mummy has BIG boobies!"

and

"I have a little doodle. Daddy has a big doodle."

And the corker yesterday or so. I had the kids in the shower and had just put Ruan in, she'd walked to the back of the bath and was investigating the taps.

Tao asks, "Wuan has a doodle?"

I say "Ruan's a girl, girls don't have penises." (yes I am trying to get Tao to say the proper names, Josh was the prude :P)

Tao has a look at Ruan's bits, then bends down and has a closer look, then stands up and pronounces "She has a little bit of a doodle."

He stood there and stared at me uncomprehendingly as I was paralysed with laughter.

Broken Record!

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Ru broke her record of 6 steps today by taking 8. 2 of the steps were after she turned a little. She was so pleased with herself she giggled, bounced on the spot which caused her to land on her bum but no matter, she clapped her tin hands together and continued giggling.

Crawling is still the primary mode of locomotion.

And yes, I need to update my icons. I might do it eventually.

3 steps

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Ru took three steps today! So cutely!

Then flopped over at crawled to daddy whom I had dragged out of bed to come see :)

That top tooth is coming through as well.

And tao's reading and toilet training are progressing slowly (the former a bit faster than the latter and I'd prefer it the other way round :P) but apparently consistantly.

Oh yeh, Ru's top left incisor is coming through. That will make three teeth in total.
