The prosecution rests its case!
Today Finn made me play the Angry Birds theme song on the piano in the living room as he repeatedly climbed on top of the couch and launched himself onto his 2 year old sister “piggy” who was cheerfully ensconced under a pile of pillows. There was much giggling of course until the inevitable howls when one of them got clobbered….
And before he went to bed, he placed his Pet Cactus (his new favouritest possession) strategically next to his pillow to protect his brains from any wandering ghouls (even though I warned him that this was NOT a very good place for a Pet Cactus).
I have since instructed my children that the iPad’s new name is now “CHINESE HOMEWORK” so that I won’t have to hide my head in embarrassment when the kids pester me for “IPAD IPAD IPAD”…
Instead, now my friends come over and hear little Finn and Dylan say “Mama, if I’m really good and eat up all my dinner, can I please have my CHINESE HOMEWORK?????” and they are awestruck by my fantastic skills as a parent and educator.
And now I shall leave you with Finn and Dylan’s favourite lullaby of the moment…. what else but Pomplamoose’s version of the Angry Birds theme song!
