What kids give back……

Having had a tummy virus for a few days, I have been stuck at home, surfing TV channels, only to be interrupted by emergency dashes to the loo.  Tonight, when things had actually quietened down from my point of view, I went to the bathroom to get some tissue paper.  How is it, that paper still on the roll is home to ‘bogeys/buggers/dried snot’?  I tried to calculate who used the bathroom prior to my rush there….but couldn’t be certain.

This got me thinking about the ‘not-particularly-cherished-by-products’ of kids’ bodies and behaviour:

– Bogeys/buggers/snot everywhere – on my car’s ceiling, side doors, seats, bedroom walls, clothes….I can’t seem to get away from it!;

– Unflushed toilets, and unwashed post-poop hands;

– Infinity farts;

– Super stinky feet/trainers (seriously, a rugby lockeroom couldn’t compete with my son’s stinky feet!  I had to buy Scholl foot/shoe spray);

– Melted crayons in the cupholders of my car;

– Ice cream (in a variety of flavours) permanently smudged into my car seats;

– Rotational viruses, bugs, germs.  Indeed children are walking viruses;

– Wobbly teeth (neverending gummy gore, especially with multiples who compete for the most number of teeth lost);

– Endless squabbling over the Wii, iPad, iPhone and every other electronic device that has the capacity to download games which 5-7 year olds enjoy;

– Daily pre-6am wake up calls (everyday including the weekends);

– Head lice which spreads like wildfire……3 infected heads = the best part of 3 hours combing out nigh on invisible eggs for at least 7 nights (so long Corrie and Emmerdale);

– Bumps, bruises, cuts, scratches, scrapes, insect bites, stings (did I mention I am ultra sqeamish???!!!);

– I am beyond talking about ‘poo’;

– Uhu glue all over my kitchen chairs because the boys were experimenting with gluing their butts to them.

I could go on, but imagine you get the gist!  At the end of the day, I can’t help but love their antics.  They induce infectious giggling amongst my lot and that always brings a smile to my face!
