Perhaps it’s the way females are wired…
But sometimes I can be frying dinner, while chopping vegetables, with the phone perched on my shoulder, chatting to my girlfriend audiobooks for children for free. The kids are playing in a room, music is blasting in the background, over the noise of my neighbour who is mowing the lawn.
Suddenly I realise that the kids have made no sound in the last 3 minutes, and it’s a kind of quiet that can only mean one thing – THAT THEY HAVE CLIMBED UP ONTO THE SHELF, PULLED OUT THE SCISSORS AND ARE NOW CUTTING UP THEIR BED SHEETS TO MAKE BANDAGES FOR THEIR TEDDY BEARS download make-up games for free.
I’m constantly amazed by how I manage to KNOW THESE THINGS, AND BE RIGHT.
I wish I could boast of a marvellous sense of bonding felt between mother and child… but no song van youtube. It was simply putting pieces together.
Earlier the oldest kid wanted 5 bandaids for their “game”, to which I said NO.
Then later, they asked to use the scissors and sticky tape, to which I said NO download not possible try it later s5 again.
Then they asked whether their bed sheets were brand new, to which I said NO.
Figuring kids out is not hard.
It’s just scary.
