Always room for Milo

Breakfast 8am:

Andy and I were trying everything to get Chelsea to eat her toast for breakfast. Tears.

“I don’t have any room left!”

*Idea!* “Would you like a Milo?”

“Yes please!”

“So if you’ve got room for Milo you’ve got room for another piece of toast.”

“But it won’t fit! I’m full up to here!” indicating top of head.

“So where will you fit your Milo?!”

“I have a little bit of room around my ears…”

The joys of Barbie

Chelsea and Sienna watch (#@$&#!)-Barbie all the time, but there’s a song in one that Chelsea sings to Sienna when she’s crying to calm her down. Amazingly it works a charm. This morning we were going through the usual breakfast-eating dramas with Chelsea, her refusing and crying… next minute Sienna started singing the song to her! missing out a few words, but enough there that we could recognise it! OMG it was priceless!

Sun goes down, and we are here together
Fireflies, glow like a thousand charms
Stay with me, and you can dream forever
Right here in my arms

It’s magic, when you are here beside me
Close your eyes, and let me hold you tight
Everything, that i could ever need
Is right here in my arms
