Every day is a learning experience
So, today Mattie and Emma learnt that rather than looking for a piece of lego they could repeatedly scream 'Rich, theres a piece missing'. Eventually Uncle Rich would break, get up from his comfy chair in front of the TV, treck to the room in which the children were imprisoned, point to the required piece, or sometimes, if I couldn't spot it, tell them that they were sitting on it (they always were). Then I would treck back & wait for them to start screaming again. I'm going off lego.
Today uncle Rich is learning that giving seven year olds a chocolate bar as a bed time snack is a mistake. And if they get up one more time I'm going to gaffer tape them to their beds and human rights be damned.
