Elves behaving nicely

Last Tuesday eldest daughter E had a singalong at Preschool, followed by a picnic. I attended with youngest daughter R thinking that it was suitable to bring her along. It was not suitable as it was her class performing for parents and not us singing with the kids dohl. Needless to say that it was difficult to keep the youngest one from joining in. Sad but true, tried putting her on the floor to sit with the class and the teacher said wheres' your mummy. SO unfortunately it just ended up being a wrestling match for an hour. But on the bright side E had made a giant Christmas cracker and I said we would save it to take home for her to open with daddy. She had drawn a lovely family portrait (including our cat Toby) which they made into a Calendar - things that make you go aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.

On Friday I was ironing Hs shirt in the morning and E said wait, I need to iron with you. I like the addition of Rocking Reindeer as a seat, very resourceful.

I went to the local charity store after Ballet on Friday and got for dress-ups, Santa hats, Reindeer antlers, a table soccer game, a bright retro handbag for ME... amongst a few items. The lady gave to the girls a couple of stuffed Christmas toys and a bag of baubles. R loves the Baubles and especially decorating herself while jumping on the couch.

Ironing is always improved by sitting down while you do it, I find!!
