Lessons learned from pumpkin-carving:

1) Tools sold by Tesco for £1 = useless.

2) Children's kitchen utensils by IKEA = brilliant and just the right size.

3) If you are fed up of cutting slivers out with knives, a drill works quite well and makes Z feel useful.

4) Finding Matei tasks to do and motivating him to do them without causing harm to himself or others has tasked every technique I recently learned on my Facilitation Skills course.


In a few hours we are going to be dressing up the baby in a bat costume (or as he calls it, a butterfly) and dressing Z up as a pirate (for which occasion we are brining out his turquoise silk shirt - there in the icon). I anticipate having cause for much entertainment and photography.

And finally:

This morning while I was trying to put M in a nappy and he was shouting NO NO NO DOESN'T WANT and I was saying "Matei, it MUST be done. Do you know what it means when something MUST be done?" and he replied: "I get biscuits."
