Not so battered children

I do voluntary work at the kids school from time to time, and while I love it, I admit there are times I'm VERY glad the teachers know me as a person as well as just the Mum who collects the kids. Today was one of those days. remember how I said the kids were playing on their bikes? Well while the last time even if the bike wobbles a bit it resulted in screaming fits as though they were falling off a cliff, yesterday they decided to make a game out of it. Great in one way as it resulted in much more confidence on the bikes, but bad in the way they were COVERED in bruises. Seriously Caitlins legs looked like a dalmation dog covered in spots, Cameron somehow managed to get a bruise on his neck?! So for them to go into school, looking very much like we'd spent the weekend battering them, I was very glad the teachers know me and know I'm not like that lol. On the battering them note Cameron bless him is getting loads of nose bleeds lately, after looking into it it seems to be when hes hot which makes sense with swollen blood vessels and all that but felt so bad for him yesterday :( he got one in the afternoon so he had to miss PE, his fave subject. Was not a happy boy, some ice cream fixed it though :p
They really are making huge progress with the bikes though. Seriously I think they've done better in two afternoons of messing about than the countless hours I've spent in the park running about and pushing them. just goes to show sometimes it's best to leave them alone and let them do their own thing. :) (I sound fine with it but really I'm screaming 'They don't need me anymore!!!@ in my head lol)
Caitlin made me laugh tonight, I swear sometimes that girl isn't mine. I can count the amount of times I've had nail varnish on on one hand, this is Caitlin tonight.
Yep she got her make-up case down, and settled down to watch tv and do her nails. no joke she was filing them, polishing them, adding glitter. I should get the girl to do mine sometime :)
I did HOPE to do some normal crafting tonight but more birthday/end of school cards and tags to make. fingers crossed for tomorrow night!


  1. I bruise very easily. When Imogen broke her arm at the age of 11, she told the gut plastering her arm that she's been drinking Pimms before breaking it - I nearly died!!!

    1. I bruised easy as a kid but not as bad now. You can see the bruises on caits legs in the photo, looks like I've been kicking her lol.
      Pmsl at Imogen, these kids just want to get us in trouble don't they!

  2. Looks like you have a beauty therapist in the making there. I'm sure it won't be long before they have cracked the bike riding x

  3. I'm on my way over for Caitlin to do my nails lol! X


Thanks for your comments. :)
