and its happening at our house!
My brilliant mum and dad are over (hooray!) and as usual, mum and I battle out whatever there is to battle out. Be it Wii fit, play fighting, crafting or whatever come what may - we have fun fights.
Tonight, within 10 minutes of stepping foot in the house of madness, we raced to the trampoline to expend some energy. I almost died laughing when mum (aged 60!!!) jumped really high trying to do a bum bounce only not to get back up again but roll over backwards so that she nearly swallowed her falsies.
TIP: When doing a bum bounce, don't jump so high and take your teeth out if applicable.
I laughed so hard I had to restrain myself from choking. It was the funniest thing ever. Mum lay there laughing her head off, which set Belle off and its just the best thing that we haven't laughed so hard in ages.
Of course, I can jump higher being younger and nubile. What gives me a slight disadvantage is a blessed chest 5 times bigger than momma (TMI, I know but you have to understand what Im up against). You would think that blessed things would provide balance/air bouyancy in trampoline battles, but I soon discovered they are a hindrance. They also cause black eyes if not secured with extreme strapping.
It was such a beautiful tonight whilst out in the garden and when mark came home we sat round enjoying the unusual sight of the sun. Its always so much fun when my parents are here - always some little competition or joke. LOVE IT!
Before we got cracking with tea (guess what? I made it, don't die of shock - and for the sake of my brother... we had Taco's and Fajitas, tis a standing joke) Belle and I and Granny chatted about this and that. She looked lovely in the dimming light so I snapped these of her in both a pensive and giggling state.and only by looking at these pictures, she is outgrowing that top and all. She got that top this time last year and look at the difference in her! **pic below taken Sept 2007** Must go shopping to buy her some more clothes. Its funny how you don't "see" your children grow but notice it through their shrinking attire - either that or they shrunk in the dryer or even worse, slipped into barbie clothes!
