Picture if you will, a 4yo sitting with chicken & veggies in front of him.
Everyone is eating their dinner (with the exception of Sonaeya, who was pasting her face with her food along with throwing chunks onto the table & pulling monster faces complete with noises. Example pictures at the end of this blog.)
4yo Koby has slept in our bed since stupid mummy & daddy (being
BRIBERY!He wants a giant 'Optimus Prime' that he's seen at a friends house that apparently cost (wait for iiiiiiiiiiit) $170!
WTF! Who's idea is it to make toys THAT ridiculously expensive?
AAAAAAAAAAAAnyway I told him that if he slept in his 'big boy bed' I'd give him $5 the morning after - so far he has $45 so he's going well.
He sat at the dinner table but decided he didn't like chicken today & was trying everything BUT eat his dinner.
I grabbed his 'big boy bed jar' (a giant plastic 500g empty peanut butter jar) that had his 9 $5 notes inside.
I explained that everytime he was naughty at the table & not eating, I would take away a $5 note.
He decided to turn around and watch t.v. so a $5 note went in my bra strap. (only place I could think of at the time as I was also eating my dinner - or trying)
He picked out a SINGLE, lonely pea (yes the dating services hadn't been to kind for that pea, only the corn would go near it) & proceeded to NIBBLE at the bloody thing!
Another $5 went into my bra strap.
Koby thought throwing a piece of chicken onto the table would mean one less piece of food to eat.
Another $5 went into my bra strap. Are you getting the picture here?
My bra was full of $5 notes (shame they weren't $100s) & Koby was sent to his room to think about things.
I proceeded to take out the $5 notes & put them back in their container.
Fast forward 2.5 hours & my right boob (the one with the lump) was itchy on one side - uh-oh I'm thinking - until I reach under my bra strap to scratch & VOILA! I felt a $5 note! Can anyone say 'Spending Spree!'?
Hubby asked me what would happen if he scratched his
Here's some pics of my truly messy 1.5 yo daughter. As you can see, she started from a very early age.....
This particular photo is her 'monster face' where she scrunches her face up whilst baring her teeth & sucking in her breathe through her nose & out again as fast as she can and as LOUDLY as she can - quite funny to watch really as it's usually followed with a silly but cheeky grin!
