Sunday Snippets 29th Nov- 3rd Dec

LifeMarylin11 Comments

You know when your kids/spouse/dog says or does something totally blogworthy and you think "I've *totally* gotta blog that" but then it only works out at about 3 lines of a blog post and that's just not enough so you just leave it and forget it ever happened? Well, that's why I thought I'd start Sunday Snippets. You can write down and/or photograph something cute, funny or generally blogworthy that happens as it happens throughout the week, and every Sunday make it into a post. I figured since we're all friends here in this bloggy community that maybe you might like to find out what others are up to as well!


  1. Write your Sunday Snippets post.

  2. Get the button in the right sidebar over there to thwack onto your post, and link back to this post (please!).

  3. Add the link to your blog post to the MckLinky at the bottom here.

  4. Read what some of your fellow bloggers have been up to, comment on at least one.

  5. Spread the love, let others know about Sunday Snippets!

Well, unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard me moaning mentioning being snowed in on facebook and/or twitter.

I mean, at first it was pretty, and there was so much of it, and it looked like fun!

However having now been stuck inside for a full week only surviving off the scraps my friends and family have brought over (ok, really they've been absolute stars bringing us bread, milk, and anything else needed. God knows what we'd have done without them!), I am SO over the damn snow.

Max freaks out if I try to stand him in it. He runs back inside and says "mummy buggy peez peez buggy peez", and howls when of course I say no as I can't get it moving in the bloody snow!

Even Zack is bored of it now. We've made a snowman. We've had the snowball fights. We've had a full week off school.

Time for LOTS of rain and warmth to just get rid of the snow entirely please!

There has been a word explosion in this house since last week!

On top of please, buggy, bread, and 'nana' for dummy, now we're getting again (agay), yeah, no, thank you (an kooo), Zack (Dack, or Ack) and cow (his table mat is a cow)!

It's like a switch has flicked in his brain and he's now on a roll!

Oh the look in his eyes when I repeat what he says and it's the right thing! It's just the most amazing feeling ever!

*gushy mummy moment*

Zack has actually been a wee star this week, despite having been off school the whole time.

He's been polite, helpful, and generally kept himself busy, including cheering up Max if or when he thinks it's needed!

Seeing the two of them playing together has me completely at a loss of words. It's makes my heart soar. The smiles, the laughter, the connection between the two of them is so obvious now. :)

I've even figured out how to stop Max screaming for hours on end!

So long as I keep Zack away from Max till he's asleep, it's all good!

Turns out that Zack's attempts to "cheer up" Max have been causing the upset all along.

So for now, Zack gets to stay up a bit later cosied up in my room with my iPhone to play and cartoons to watch till Max is asleep.

If only I'd figured this out sooner!
