Getting back into Blogging

It's been a while since I was a regular at writing, but I'm going to try and get back into regular updates. Callum & Kieran are now both at full time school and I'm getting used to having a few hours to myself each day.

Kieran started school without a backwards glance and is absolutely loving it. I picked him up after his first day and he gave me a big hug and said "you came back!" , now he just says "it's SO nice to see you" and gives his brother a huge hug while all the other parents in the line go "aahhhh".

Kieran is going through a couple of annoying phases at the moment, the first is the joke phase - it goes like this...

Kieran: knock, knock
us: Who's there?
Kieran: orange
us: Orange who?
Kieran (laughing his head off as if we're about to hear the funniest thing EVER): oranges and bananas!!!!

He'll tell the same joke over and over and over and over again.

The other phases is the "what is it" phase. We were driving along and chatting after school and I happened to mention that we were going to go round the roundabout and then pick up Daddy...

Kieran: What's a roundabout?
Me: a big circle that you drive around
Kieran: What's a circle?
Me: it's a shape
Kieran: what's a shape?
Me: uhh, umm, uhh

think I'll have to start carrying a dictionary with me wherever we go

I hope you start blogging again. I miss hearing about your cute boys. In the last couple sets of photos you posted Callum reminds me of Max so much in some of the pics. It must be some expression or angle. Glad the boys like school.

Welcome back! It's good to hear what's going on with you all. Isn't it wonderful to have a little slice of peace during the day?
