Things I’m NOT allowed to do because it makes my toddlers cry

– Wear a scarf indoors. I might be accessorizing, I might be cold. They don’t care. Scarfs are for outdoors only.
– Finish the jam on my rice pudding, or the ice cream on my crumble or that last piece of sausage or fish finger. They are apparently for “sharing” not for mummy.
– Lie down to take a nap. Like the Terminator mummy must never stop moving…
– Wear shoes in the house. No matter how many times I explain that my summer flats are now for indoors over the winter it doesn’t matter. Must buy new indoor shoes/slippers that they have never seen outdoors.
– Hang up on a FT conversation without Zoey and Nomi being able to say a proper good-bye.


Circles & Swirls

Circles & swirls with Z. Whilst N holds Leah’s hand & cries in the background.

Cylons first dental check-up


This is of the girls playing in the waiting room before the intense crying began. Even though they were okay waiting they really knew something was up.

I tried to keep an open mind that I wouldn’t be as bad as I thought it would. The girls would calmly open their mouths for the examination, cleaning and fluoride treatment. Yeah right.

Both girls started wailing as soon as we approached the examination room. It was not pretty. Snot, tears, being held whilst the treatments took place and much pointing at the door indicating they wanted to leave. They also pointed out the window at the car park to reiterate the point that they were done and could we go now.

Once everything was over for both girls they calmed down. I think had Naomi been on her own she would have calmed down faster but separating causes more tears so we just knuckled down to get through it.

Both girls have all their teeth bar the 2 year molars. Zoey in fact has an extra tooth (and an under bite). Of course she does. Getting one over the tooth fairy and Naomi.

They got a goodie bag of a toothbrush and toothpaste and seem a little more into dental hygiene at the mo.

Things that make Naomi cry

  • Green vegetables
  • Zoey crying at 3am due to excessive fire truck action
  • Having her head patted by Zoey (which resembles a scene from Face-Off than sisterly love)
  • Papa going to work
  • Papa walking away
  • Papa turning his back on her (she’s like the Queen)
  • Sneezing, coughing and excessive laughter
  • Going without a cuddle (giving and/or receiving) for longer than a 10 minutes
