I have come to a somewhat blinding realisation.
My kids are growing up and doing less *insane and mind-numbingly annoying* things for me to blog about....ho hum.
I have been reading through my original blog from 2007 and have been blown away by the fodder with which I was provided by my then 1,3 and 6 year old. Gosh, my days were like a reality show - full of amusing chaos, carnage and craziness.
Nowadays it is not uncommon for me to have my charming lad set the table for dinner....
and find these two playing for hours together with all kinds of new games being created daily.
Now let me hasten to add that I am not angling for any chaos, carnage or craziness. I will settle quite happily for Walton-style normality.
Friday night we took them sprogs off to see HOP, they thoroughly enjoyed it and I enjoyed the soundtrack. I dont really *do* kids movies (was scarred for life recently by Rango and before that by The Bee Movie) but this one was doable. Discovery offers free movies for kids before 7pm so we are trying to go every Friday evening if there is a suitable show.
Saturday saw me pottering around the house. My pottering generally makes the family nervous because I tend to end up on a mission, sorting and decluttering. It can sometimes get ugly. Happy to say no casualties this weekend. Unless you count a tired old chest of drawers that has been unceremoniously dragged into the garage and is currently undergoing reconstructive painting.
Sunday found me pounding the treadmill. Bleh. But necessary. The day was rescued by an epic walk on Noordhoek beach - balm for the soul that place.
My kids continue to enchant me. Although they annoyed me at least 12 times this weekend (mainly around those damn bunnies!) my overwhelming feeling is true contentment as I watch them spend hours playing together. They are truly in a good space and for that I am truly grateful.
