Snippets.....

......of conversation I heard this evening from the floor below.


'...sounds like somebody'd been clattered with that guitar....'

'.....I didn't mean to squirt you with tomato sauce......'

'...OW! She's just thrown a ladder on my foot......'

'.....Put a cold cloth on it......'

'....Hit her back, you big girl.....'

'...YOU PSYCHO!!........'

'......Can I help it if the dolls' house fell on you?....'

'....I'm moving out of this house.......'

'.....I think she's packing a suitcase......'







Why would I lie? You couldn't make this stuff up.


VACANCY:

Nanny needed for five delightful females.

Apply within.

I'm always telling my two to put a cold cloth or tissue on it - works wonders! :-D

I get in the bath when this is going on in my house, but then I am The Daring Type. Of course, the glass of wine and Classic FM blaring helps to somewhat dull the noise.

Nanny?

Don't you mean "referee"?!

Had me laughing again. Sorry to laugh at the stuff in your house. It's funny cos it's true!

At least you resisted the urge to join in, which I never seem able to do (loudly!)

I wouldn't think for a minute you'd made it up - it all sounds horribly familiar. It's lovely and funny of course, but sometimes silence would make a refreshing change! My 6-year old son has started saying "You idiot" which really makes my blood boil.

Renae said...

I'm with bella. Turn up the music and let them go at it. :-)

Blessings, dear friend!

Is that really true? Such random comments? Amazing x

Katney said...

How 'bout "Go ahead. Tell Mom. She won't believe you." THEN you know it's gonna be good...

I can remember those times in my own house as I was growing up. My own kids are kind of quiet. Oh don't get me wrong, they do fight, just not very much. There were four of us growing up and I think something was going on in our house everyday. This really brings back memories for me. We all are still very close also. Great post!

Happy belated St Patrick 's Day.
I 'm slowing down to keep my internet bill down.

I want to comment on each individual post but to keep the bill down I have to refrain from that.

You warm my heart so much Jackie.

My kids frequently heard me tell them "put a sock in it" and now, I find myself telling the little granddaughter that too from time to time. Right now though, I just want to tell the blasted cat, who is in heat, to PLEEEEZE, put a sock in it, shut up, go away! Not that they listens but then, neither did/do the kids.

I dread to think what you found when you went down stairs!

Manic Mother Of Five said...

Welcome to my world! My boys are constantly vying to be top dog. Imagine all that testosterone flying about!

Daft thing is that put a certain little girl into the mix and they behave beautifully.

Kids!

'Standard'! (as my pupils say - hope I've got the meaning right)

Reading this is better than watching the soaps

:) Your girls might make Mary Poppins retire.

Jennie said...

I don't know how you do it!

Coming here always puts a smile on my face! :)

Maggie May said...

Yes ....... turn up the radio & let them get on with it!

I found your blog through Barb at Chelsea morning -- love your photo i.d.:) This is too funny. My cousin has 5 girls and I've always been a bit envious, thinking it would be like a big slumber party all the time. Loved the post about Palm Sunday. So beautiful. And I thought I was the only one who felt that way about holy week. The Catholic guilt. . .

It might be time to break out the referee shirt and whistle...
