Snippets

Just a few random things to share.

Elisha is quite the little environmentalist. Last week while talking to nan about our visit to see the ducks and swans at Bibra Lake, and the fact that the water level is very low, he announced that he is going to take our hose on the next visit, so he can give them some water.

I bought a new children’s bible for the family and it arrived a week or so ago. The first page of the story of Noah has a picture of Noah and he has cut down some trees. The first dozen or so times that I read it to Elisha he was quite upset, asking “Why did Noah have to cut down the trees?” and other questions along a similar vein. I even got a “That makes me very sad” on a couple of occasions. Absolutely too cute.

Yesterday while making a mess of his dinner – apparently he was making “mint”?, he used a word that was quite unexpected. Mashing his vegetables into his little container of baked beans I asked him if he was finished yet (with the making a mess) and he said, “No, not yet, it is still to bland“. I had a silent laugh.

Miss Cayley is talking a lot more these days… I do love the sound of a babbling baby.

Oh, how could I forget! My poor little babies are sick. Both of them have coughs. Little Cayley was awake and up three times last night. I think it must have interfered with her breathing and upset her. The good thing is that each time I picked her up she was happy straight away, burbling to me and making lots of happy noises, which made it much easier to put her back to bed. Elisha on the other hand didn’t make much of a sound all noise, which disconcerted me for some reason. I spent a good few minutes with my ear to his closed door at one stage waiting for him to make some sort of a noise. He did eventually and I went back to bed.

Last but not least there is some rather exciting construction going on outside in our ‘pit’.

  1. The first dozen or so times that I read it to Elisha he was quite upset, asking “Why did Noah have to cut down the trees?” and other questions along a similar vein.

    To continue the arboreal metaphor, you might want to nip that in the bud. It’s cute now, but in ten years’ time when he’s a full-blown junior enviro-fascist, harranging you about recycling and carbon footprints and solar panels, it’s going to be mighty annoying.

  2. Oh that looks like something interesting happening in your back yard.. I’m looking forward to seeing more pics as it progresses.
