Top Ender noticed this man and seemed a bit puzzled as to why a man would be carrying a window up a road.
"Look at that Man Top Ender, He is carrying a window" said Daddy
"I wonder why he is doing that" I said
"So when he gets hot he can get a breeze Mummy!" said an exasperated Top Ender

"I am not adopting an Orangutan!" she said defiantly
"Why not Top Ender?"
"Because, I don't want one messing up my stuff!"
"It wouldn't come and live with us you know..."
"Oh! Well we should then as you get a free toy."
Top Ender and I were talking on the way to school this morning about a water fight we had last year. It was only a few days before Baby Boy was born, and gloriously hot.
Top Ender and I sat in the Garden in swimming costumes and hats and slathered ourselves in sunscreen dipping our feet in the paddling pool in an attempt to keep cool.
This image is one I keep of that day in my Minds eye and I wanted to share it with you too.

I just hope that she understands she doesn't actually get the money!

He was sitting on the floor playing with some toys when suddenly he started screaming and shouting "Mama, Mama". I rushed over to see what was wrong and he burst in to tears when he saw me and looked to the floor.
My eyes went to where his had settled and saw that he had done a wee on the carpet. I quickly calmed him and told him not to worry that wee was easily cleaned up, but he kept staring at his leg. I realised that when he had done the wee some had gone on his leg and that is what the fuss was about, he had startled himself!

"Oh no she was so naughty. She wouldn't go to bed when I told her", said Granny winking at me
"Is that true Top Ender?" I asked in mock shocked horror
"Do you want the truth Mummy?"
"I actually wanted to go to bed earlier than Granny would let me!"
At this point Auntie started laughing "Is that true?"
"Yes, she went to bed on her own at 8:30 and was asleep in seconds!" said Granny!

A few moments later she was shouting from the stairs that there was sick upstairs. I thought she said that the cat had been sick (worryingly as none of the cats were in the house) and so asked her to repeat what she had just said.
"I've been sick and I'm sorry"
"Its okay come down, let me clean you up"
"Its on the landing and in my room"
"That is okay, you get washed and undressed in the bathroom and I will go clean it up and get some PJ's for you to wear okay?"
After we had everything cleaned up (jeeps that kid threw up a lot) I apologised to her for not believing her when she said she felt ill.
"That's okay, don't feel bad. I didn't know I was going to be sick until it was on the floor!"

"Top Ender, tell me the truth"
"I saw another Polly Pocket Doll, with a penguin!"
"Will it make you behave so you get your stars?"
"Then yes that will be your reward, if by Sunday you have enough stars"
"Okay... Can I have tonight?"

Top Ender had got a full week of stars on the calender and so we purchased two small Polly Pocket dolls for her as a reward (they were 75p in a toy sale) and left them under her bed for her.
