Sunday Snippets 8-14 Nov

LifeMarylin5 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!

Just two more sleeps till Max starts nursery. WOW it's gone by quickly! We've been going to playgroup, and spending time with some friends with littlies around the same age as Max (developmentally that is, ie they're 2 and a bit), and the only time he gets upset is when we have to leave! Or if there's food around that he's not allowed to have. OK so there have been tantrums about other littlies taking whatever toys he's lining up to play with, but he's getting used to that, which is a really good thing. OK it's a great thing! He's been doing so well! So, yes... 2 sleeps till nursery. EEK!

Zack has been falling asleep next to Max in his cotbed lately... I made the decision (grudgingly) to pop my old tv/dvd combi tv in their room in the hopes that Max would be calmer in the evenings, meaning it would be easier for both him and Zack to get to sleep. Also to help me stop tearing my hair out with him being awake till after 10pm some nights. So far it's working. You do what you have to, right?

So yeah, that it *so* cute to see, unfortunately I don't dare take a photo in case I wake one of them up. We all know if you wake one, you might as well have woken the other, right?

Zack was up half of wednesday night hacking and coughing and generally being very unhappy. He finally fell asleep at about 7.30am, so I called the school for him to have the day off. By the afternoon he was bouncing off the walls though, so I figured he'd be fine for friday. Until he did the same thing thursday night too.

Oh, and did I mention he also woke up on friday night at about 3am crying his eyes out cause he felt something on the bed 'like a mat, like Max's changing mat', only it was still in it's usual place. Bad dream I'm thinking? So we ended up sleeping in my bed for the rest of the night.

Max said "buggy"!!! Clear as day! He's been wanting out more and more lately, which is fine, except for when it's pouring with rain and we don't have to go out for anything, so he led me to his buggy and said it. I was SOOO proud of my lil man!

We still didn't go out though. I know, I know, I'm mean, but it was lashing down and FREEZING!

He's also become very tactile all of a sudden. Will come over and engage with me to play tickles ("ickehzzz'), and generally play rough and tumble on the sofa. So! Much! Fun!

The rat is on the sofa right now, pining for me. She's sitting at the edge looking at me, I think she'd like some attention! She still loves it when I play the piano. It's like she goes into a wee trance!

That's my Sunday Snippets, have you got any to share this week?
