wobbly

Wee Small has a wobbly tooth.
She wobbles and wobbles and wobbles the tooth.
"Look at my wobbly tooth!" she tells me excitedly.

I can't look. It makes my stomach queasy to watch that tooth wobbling back and forth like a small white door opening and shutting.

"How does the Tooth Fairy know whose teeth have fallen out?" asks Wee Small, with her fingers in her mouth at the same time.
"Well...errr...." I begin uncertainly "Each time a child wobbles a tooth back and forth it rings a wee bell in the Tooth Fairy's castle. So she gets a bit of time to check the address and prepare."

Wee Small's eyes open in wonder and a bit of thinking goes on in her wee head.
She starts wobbling the tooth with renewed vigour. Making me queasier, and wishing I hadn't said that. Wee Small must be making sure the Tooth Fairy get's the address just right.

I don't know why, but I am sure that tooth is tolling like a big deep bell in her castle and keeping the tooth fairy awake.

mysterious messages

Today the little ones received a secret message in the mail. It seems to be from Secret Agent Etsy.



Clearly there is a mission afoot. The little ones donned the appropriate attire with haste to dramatic music!


little ones in disguise!

Then the little ones read the secret message.
"It says xnmjpplgh gjkk rgeeui" said Wee Tiny,
"It is a secret code." said Wee Golden
"Do I get a chocolate ice cream?" asked Wee Tiny
"Yes,'" said Wee Small

The little ones spent the next ten minutes hunting for clues under rocks, in trees and then {with the help of The Little One (being the eldest)} they found the chocolate ice cream in the freezer!

The little ones were quite happy with their success on this secret mission. I, however am baffled about what it all means. What is it all about?

sniffles

I have the sniffles. I want to lie on the couch and do nothing.

Wee Golden has wandered up to tummy mountain again and he has this to say about himself;

"My power is a wolf and my power is I can do a anything," says Wee Golden
"Well that is the best power to have," I reply.

I hope being able to do anything means he can take my sniffles away, you know, in the cause of good and all that.

butterflies

Wee Tiny was sleeping when she roused herself, looked around blearily and said "butterflies."

She then lay back down and went back to sleep.

A few minutes later she sat up and said "butterflies" again.

But this time she did not lie down and go back to sleep.

So I said "yes, butterflies."

Wee Tiny seemed satisfied and went back to sleep.

here we go again

Well I suppose you can say here is a new ending to an age old story. Or maybe a more accurate ending.

"Is it ready yet?"
"No."
"When will it be ready?"
"Not now."
"Will it be ready soon?"
"Yes, soon."
"Is soon now?"
"No, soon is not now."
"So it is not soon?"
"No, it is not soon yet."
"Why isn't it ready?! I have been very impatient!"

...and another thing

Wee Golden had a few more things to say;

"I am saving up for the one thousand dollars," said Wee Golden
"Really," I responded "What are you going to buy?"
"Six houses and a pony."
"Hmmm..." said I, not really sure what to say to that.
"Yes." continued Wee Golden, "I'll give you the pony."
"Why thank you, but where would I keep a pony?"
Wee Golden thought for a moment, had a look around, and then he told me.
"In a gate." he said
"A gate? I want to keep it in the house."
"You can't do that!" said Wee Golden with a look of concern on his wee cherubic face.
"Well why not?" said I.
"Because when you are asleep it will lick your face."
