Sunday Snippets #1

I thought I’d try something, to give myself a little momentum with this lil old blog here.

I’m going to attempt to write a post every Sunday that has snippets of things the boys have said and done throughout the week that I found amusing, annoying, or just too damn cute!

So… here we go…

  • Saturday morning, Zack was out in the garden playing with the kids who live next door. They run in between our garden, wee old Mrs Campbell’s garden (who has a swing for her grandkids and is happy to see it being used more often, as she put it. She’s a sweetheart!), and C and T’s garden. I’m in the kitchen, tidying up getting chocolate to have a little fix when Zack comes running in the house, all happy and out of breath, and says “Guess what Mummy! C’s trying to kill me!” and runs back out again.
    About two seconds later he pops his head back in to say “It’s just pretend though!” and runs back out. Priceless!
  • Max has started playing with the plastic tubing that is supposed to make up the second little goal for Zack’s wee footie set up, and using them like swords (or lightsabers as Zack and Dean say!), and my *god* he packs a hell of a good hit with them! It is very cute and quite scary at the same time!
  • Zack has started saying things like “Word to yo momma!” “West Coast y’all” and other such ‘gansta’ phrases. It is very cute!
  • Max can now get down the stairs by himself. How do we know this? Cause we left him upstairs with the stairgate shut, his brother nipped down to get something he’d forgotten from the living room, and before we knew it there was a Max running into the living room looking all pleased with himself. Note to self: BUY A LOCK for the stair gate!

These are the only ones I can remember for now, but I will try to write down more of the cuteness over the week as it happens so I have more to tell you next sunday!

Feel free to join in and link back to this post.

You never know, I might even manage to make a lil button and get a Mr Linky up for next week! 😉

    Yes, locks for gates are always a good thing! Hehe.

    Given his new gangsta speak it’s probably good that he clarifies that any murderous attempts in the neighborhood are make believe.

    I don’t suppose throwing a bowl of cereal over my laptop counts as cute, does it? No, i guess not. Little darling *tight smile*

    My eldest is a divil for forgetting to shut the stairgate. Love the ‘pretend’ one 😀 This is a great idea, go for it, will join in if my kids are willing to come up with material 🙂 Jen.

    Lol well I had a milk spillage this morning! They can be little darlings can’t they? Sometimes? Occasionally? 😉

  8. June 21, 2010 / 1:15 pm

    Yay! I look forward to it. 😀

    It is *so* darn cute! 🙂

    Hurray you’re posting again! I’m looking forward to your Sunday Snippets. I throw out enough drivel everyday and am hopeless at remembering memes, and regular posts – in fact, I think I still owe you a meme response don’t I?

  11. June 23, 2010 / 1:05 pm

    Hehe most likely! I don’t remember to be honest! Doh. >_<

    I always hear Zack saying funny things (and Max just being Max and doing funny things!) and think about making it into a blog post, but there’s never enough from it, so I figured… keep it all written down and post once a week! 😉

    Hi there! Found you`through Jen!
    Your Sunday Snippets is a great idea and with your two you’ll have lots of material! This appeals to me. I have one child WiiBoy and believe me he gives me tons of material. I’ve done a couple of “WiiBoy’s Words of Wisdom Posts over the last two years an djust this week I’m starting a series!
    I look forward this Sundays’s Snippets! xx Jazzy

    Thanks Jazzy! I have done these posts every once in a while too, but I think it’s time to make it a more regular thing… it might even get me blogging a bit more often! lol 🙂
    Nice to meet you. 🙂 x

    “Out of the mouths of babes…” Isn’t that how it goes? The best things said on earth come from the innocence of children!

    Oh so true!! Some of the things Zack comes out with these days are whoppers! LOL 🙂
