Dear Zack

I love you very very much, really I do, but you need to stop talking to me all! the! time! without! a moment’s! rest!

Max needs you to stop waking him up at stupid-o’clock in the morning, cause he (and I!) would rather sleep till about 9am.

You really don’t have to copy everything I say either. It’s annoying!

Also, you should stop stealing food from the kitchen. It’s annoying having to lock it up any time I even go upstairs for a bit.

Stop licking your lips all the time or the dermatitis you have around them will never heal properly!


Keep giving me cuddles and kisses.

Don’t ever stop having fun with your little brother. He loves you and you love him, and it shows.

Stop growing! You’re going to be 5 in the summer already… and about to start school… just, slow down!

Keep up the “West-Coast y’all” moves – they’re uber cute.

Keep dancing to your favourite songs. The Prodigy and Nine Inch Nails really are pretty awesome, so long as Dean makes sure you don’t listen to ones with Bad Words in them!

    Haha – yeah I often turn to Paul and say “You’ve got a dose of the verbals huh?” and he just says “Yes Mum”. I am dreading how quiet the house will be in August 🙁

    Oh, I sometimes so wish we had a mute button for my two, talk, talk, talk, chat, why, what does that mean and that’s just Bel!!
    I think it may be due to the fact that Neb always has the verbals and getting a word in edgeways is a hard thing.

    It most certainly is! >_<

    Max is upstairs now and Zack is outside… the first peace I’ve had all day!

  4. May 30, 2010 / 3:51 pm

    LOL I like that one!

    I’m looking forward to Zack starting school to be honest… I relish the quiet, and Max is happier when Zack’s not about either… >_<

    If you ever get bored you can always pop over to Crieff, or meet up in Perth! 😉

    FIVE! Where did THAT time go????????

  6. May 31, 2010 / 5:12 pm

    Zack just constantly likes to tell me/show me exactly what he’s doing when he’s on his Wii… nevermind that mummy likes to use that as her ‘quiet time’ to work at the computer! >_< :)

    I don’t know what it is about age 4 but they NEVER stop. I remember hiding on my eldest once, I just couldn’t take any more lol. He is eight now and it has only eased a little 😀 What a handsome young man though 😀 Jen.

    I have *no* idea! When I first started blogging he was only just turned 2! >_<

  9. May 31, 2010 / 5:24 pm

    Hehe yes he is rather handsome! Not that I’m biased… 😉

    At least when he’s older he might be more likely to want to play in his room? Maybe? I can hope! 😉

    I may have to steal this and send it to the girl. So true.

  11. June 1, 2010 / 5:13 am

    Very true. The one you always hear from me is “stop licking your lips, or they’ll never heal.”

    Just the same over here with my 3 little boys…

  12. June 1, 2010 / 10:21 am

    It’s such a pain isn’t it? I don’t think Zack’s has fully healed in over 2 months… grrr!

  13. June 1, 2010 / 5:47 pm

    You know… I hadn’t thought of that one! Might give it a try… 😉

    Oh, man. Max is also! a! big! talker! all! the ! time! GAH.

    And? We also do stupid o’clock over here. Regularly. Sigh.

    Sweet post, though: I loved the dancing, kisses, cuddles and brotherly love parts 😉

    The stupid o’clock thing is sooo annoying isn’t it! >

  16. June 4, 2010 / 11:28 am

    Very true… and that will be even more annoyin! lol 🙂

    BTW… you’re my 1000th comment!!! *makes a big song and dance for Kelley* Wheeeeee!

  17. June 6, 2010 / 6:19 pm

    Oh goodness. I know how much *I* talked when I was little. I can only imagine how my little one will be. Although… .my hubby is a pretty quiet guy…

    Nah, I’m sure this one will be a talker just like I was. My nickname was Motormouth for awhile in the family. My sisters loved to play “be quiet for 5 mins and we’ll give you something.” >.>

  18. June 6, 2010 / 6:37 pm

    Ahhh you won’t have peace n quiet for much longer… make the most of it!!!

    I like telling Zack to play Dead Fish. He has to lie down, and be as still n quiet as possible for as long as he can, and he wins. 😉 He hasn’t managed to last long enough yet though! hehe

    Your zack sounds so much like my Ana. However now that she has reached the relms of teenagehood the endless yapping has been replaced with grunts and snarls.

    We also have to lock food away and we’re cureently waiting for a specail lock to be fitted to our kitchen door to prevent her from eating her own weight in food while I am on the loo.

    The lip sucking and licking is a big issure here, but I have found lip blams for chapped lips in very small amounts useful for aiding healing. You have to be careful because some types tend to sting.

    For all her difficulties and differences, I wouldn’t change her because then she would be her.

  20. June 8, 2010 / 6:03 pm

    Oh I am not looking forward to the teenage years… I’ll be happy to keep him as he is for as long as I can! I can’t believe I’ve just been shopping for his first school uniform already!
