Weekend Notes – Glutton for Sleep

Keep Calm and SleepI had a nanna nap today. It was an hour and half long and it was the bestest thing in the whole wide world. I wasn’t woken up by little ones singing twinkle twinkle little star (not that cute when its what woke you up) or Little Miss yelling to Little Mister, “You wake now?”. Nope. The twinnies were stuffed from a morning out to the show. Woohoo for me!

Now even though I had the bestest nanna nap in the whole wide world, I’m still thinking I’m going to have an early night….and a sleep in tomorrow cos its Monday and that’s my morning to sleep in. Its like all my wishes have come true at once! I get moooooooore sleep :-D

Growth Spurts

Little Mister is going through a major growth spurt. Its making him tired, grumpy and hunnnnnnnnnngry! He’s been eating like a horse…and its kinda making him poop like one too. I thought he was a poopertoddler_at_home beforehand but its getting ridiculous now.

Last night he went to the potty before his bath and did a #2 AND THEN he pooped in his sleep a few hours later. I walked into their room and poooooooo eeeeeeeeee. It was stinky in there. He even slept through the whole nappy change. I don’t remember the other growth spurts being like this. But then I can’t remember what I had for breakfast this morning either.

Do growth spurts get worse as they get older???

Taming Toddler Tuesday – Painting

Toddler PaintingI don’t know about you but all I want before the dinner-bath-bedtime fight routine all begins, is 10-15mins of time to tidy up and (more importantly) zonk out. This is what I look for in a taming toddler activity and I thought painting would give me that 10-15mins of ‘free’ time but alas it did not.

Turns out my twins are prolific painters. They could have finished the Sistine Chapel in a day. Little Mister and Miss went through enough paint and butchers paper for FOUR paintings each. All that was done in 15 mins. I barely finished putting a load of dishes in the dishwasher. I had to keep stopping to re-stock my little artists and to ooooh and ahhhhh over their masterpieces.

Garbage bag art smocAh well. I am really impressed with my garbage art smocks handiwork though. What do you think??? Hot or not ;-)
