Me and bees

I admit it. I am truly fascinated by them and that's why I spend hours watching them on the lavendar bushes.

Today I asked Mummy if it was ok to take a bottle outside and catch one. She said yes. I don't think she heard me right though. She came outside and seemed quite shocked to find me with a bottle in one hand and signing food to the bees. I was trying to convince them that the bark I'd put in the bottle was better food than the flowers.

They didn't seem to think so. Oh well - next time!

Mummy's first successful food day since I got the pox!

I wish she had thought to take photos.

We made cheese puffs for lunch. SO EASY even I could do it if she would let me grate cheese!

Makes 12 mini muffin size puffs.

1/2 cup cheese
1/2 cup flour
1t baking powder
salt and pepper to taste

milk to form a soft dough

Put teaspoon fulls in the WELL greased muffin pans and bake until golden and yummy

I had them for lunch with a boiled egg and a few slices of cheese.

For supper she made homemade pork patties, chow mein noodles, cucumber and tomato... Very very tasty!

Thanks for making great food today Mummy!

Me and Jefferson

This afternoon I sat Jefferson on a chair at my table and had a long discussion with him on how to draw a motorbike. He wasn't much help as he kept falling off the chair when I gave him the crayon to draw with. So after a few tries I gave up and sat on his head while I drew a motorbike. He thinks it's a great motorbike. So does Mummy!

I am a boy!!

It made Daddy laugh and it made Mummy cry...

It was after my bath and Mummy and Daddy were trying to distract me while they were putting the ointment on my poxies. So they were asking me to show them my body parts, I'm really good at that. SO Daddy says "where is your penis?" so I pointed to it. Then he asked me "where is your bum?" That's when I squatted down with my hands on my knees and farted!! On purpose!!

Poor Mummy was horrified and Daddy and I thought it was VERY FUNNY!!

What a long weekend!

Grandma and Gramps came over from Sydney for a long weekend, so I decided to celebrate with a nasty bout of Chicken Pox. It was one of those ideas, like sliding down a wet slide 20 minutes from home, that sounds good in my head but is actually a BAD IDEA!

I got the pox EVERYWHERE - anywhere that could get a pox got one. But I did go to the airport to meet them. Although in retrospect I probably infected all the international travellers (hehe).

Once I got home I was in good spirits until it started itching. Luckily I had four adults to entertain me and keep my hands busy. I had to bath in pinetarsol to stop the itching - which makes the bath all yellow and smelly. Then Mummy and Daddy and Grandma (yes it took three people) covered me in pawpaw ointment, lovely sticky stuff.

Even though I was quite run down by the poxies, I hope I was lively enough to give Gramps and Grandma their money's worth. We went to Rivendell, the river and the play ground. I also showed them all my toys and my new smile pose.

I am now almost better and have been driving Mummy nuts with my constant asking if we can go to the airport to see "Ganma". I check their room every morning and say "no no" and "plane" when Mummy says they've gone home.

Oh Mummy says I must tell you all that I am using the window seats that Gramps and Daddy made to stand on the windowsill and look out the new open window and talk to the bees!

Gramps and Grandma will be back soon for Gramps' work!! YAY!!
