The Stories Not Shown in the Photo:

I bought these pants in the girls section. There's something about leggings on little boys that make my heart sigh. Dave clocked them and got all suspicious. I feigned exasperation. "As if, hon! They're boys tracksuit pants." (Heh) -

Speaking of tracksuit pants, Dave and the boys bought me a black Adidas trakkie for mothers day. Which I've worn every day since. I finally washed it today. I give it about three months before my armpit man-glands ruin it forever -

I cleaned Rocco's room. 6.7 seconds later this happened -

After destroying said clean room, Rocco gave birth to an 8-year old boy -

We daringly took the boys out for brekkie on the weekend. On the way there we stopped at a garage sale and bought this wooden toy for $2 which kept Rocco amused until our eggs arrived. Score! -

So annoyed at everybody in this house drinking all of my skim milk with gay abandon, I clearly marked my territory in permanent pen AND a skull and crossbones -

Mysteriously, all the milk was gone when I went to make a coffee the next morning.

Q) How do you piss mummy off so badly that steam comes out of her ears before 6.30am?

A) Put her skim milk container back in the fridge. With no skim milk in it.


  1. OMG. I needed this. Thank you. (My parents arrived last night and I've been growling and choking ever since. ~Lauging~ was lovely. I think you are one of the few who could have pulled that trick.)


  2. You make me laugh. That is all. Loves ya.

  3. Aww, I love Rocco in girly pants! Cutie patootie :).

  4. Great pics and stories. I love the milk jug decorations.

  5. I laughed out loud to the giving birth to an 8 yr old boy pic. Hilarious!

  6. Hilarious! But what's wrong with the boys in your house? The ones I know will only drink whole milk. Skim milk is for girls!

  7. I am amazed every time I see a picture of Rocco. He seems to be aging exponentially. I have this bad habit of finding a blogger and then forever picturing their child at the age I first found them. Therefore Rocco is forever just a wee babe, not this animated toddler.

  8. That picture of your dog makes me a bit sad.

  9. Oh I laughed. Especially at the birthing photo. So glad I didn't have to give birth to a child that big. :-)

  10. Happy birthday to Rocco

  11. The other day we were at a movie when my sister-in-law sent me a photo on my phone of my son wearing those same type of leggings. My husband was not amused. He did look kind of cute in them, though. He's 3.

    I guess that milk thing is something I'll have to look forward to. Oh dear.
