I have no idea where August went but I’m quite happy to welcome September, the start of spring! So in line with the lovely Stoecel.com I am posting my monthly review today –
Things I learnt in August….
I learnt that reading out loud the school notice about book week projects will lead to an explanation of the word ‘diorama’ and then making one!
I learnt that getting the baby to smile is so much easier than catching one of those smiles with the camera.
I learnt that it does rain here occasionally…. and rain… and rain… and oh yes, it’s still raining! I am trying hard not to complain but hey weather, didn’t you get the memo? It’s spring today so could ease up on the freezing cold rainy days and through in a few more sunshiny ones, please.
I learnt that reading can be dangerous, that Man Flu isn’t as contagious as I thought and that I really do have a good bag of parenting tricks, even when I am tired.
I was reminded of how much infant reflux sucks…. and I am constantly reminded of that fact, especially when I get home from the post office only to discover I have a huge baby spew all down my back that no one told me about.
‘We Played’ fairy stories, pretend cooking, tiny treasures, tying laces , and cooking pita chips.
I learnt how much I hate ‘Show and Tell’ at school…. and how much my girls adore it.
I learnt that my girls possibly have a problem with hypochondria…
Zoe – “I have a line on my foot that might, possibly, one day maybe, if I cut it, become a sore… so I need a band aid.”
And I learnt how annoyed I would get with someone who just didn’t bother to vote… despite the fact that almost two weeks later we still don’t have a new government.
What did you learn in August?
Read the comments or scroll down to add your own:
I learnt to find the good things amongst all of the bad.
I learnt that I am tired of blogging and tired of being told what I can and cannot write about. I learnt that I can’t keep up with the popular people or the new forum and I learnt about how that makes me feel.
I learnt that I really really need a holiday and if I don’t get some down time soon, I may just break for good.
PS Love that photo of your smiley boy.

Funny to read about the start of Spring. Fall is approaching here in Texas but it is still scorching hot around here. Maybe October will bring some relief.
