Things I Know

Things I know this week:

* I am quite spectacularly inept at building and maintaining our wood fire – heaven help me and my tribe mates if I ever appeared on Survivor!

* Miss 5 is above average in all areas tested by the school counsellor – so I know she has above average intelligence for her age – but I am still no closer to knowing why things just don’t feel right with her…

* Miss 1 now has the ability to walk on her own – but most of the time she just chooses not to.  We’ll have to see whether the absolutely rocking pair of pink shoes I bought her today will nudge her along!

* Despite knowing better, I still try to reason with Master 7 when he is in full meltdown – why do I do this, when I know there is no point in reasoning to an overwrought child?

* I desperately need a holiday but will not be having one anytime soon. I have the misfortune of working in a finance area at the end of the financial year and with the prospect of tax time looming on the horizon. So no happy EOFYS for me, I’m afraid!

I had so much fun talking about the things I know last week that I am having another go this week. Pop on over to Yay for Home and peruse all the other fabulous Things I Know posts.

    It’s so true that we learn something new every day – and with kids in the house, make that ten things a day! I relate to all of these!
    I have two Miss 5’s and I work in finance!
    We just got two great school reports and I feel both girls settling much better into school term 2 – but very ready for a break. No holiday for me this school break either. Sigh.

      Thanks for stopping by! Glad to hear your Miss 5’s are doing so well – having just one is doing my head in, let alone having two! I’m hoping for a break in the next school holidays…fingers crossed, hope you get one soon too!
