Miss Bizzy Britches



Things are Out. Of. Control. at my house. Both the Mr and I are up to the eyeballs in work commitments with silly deadlines. I am itching to get to some crafty stuff, but for the next few weeks I reckon I'll be lucky to achieve one granny square a fortnight (sorry Pip). Having said that, the youngest Myrtleandeunice (relatively speaking), is the busiest by far. I really should attach a pedometer to the kid.

For the last few months there has been the undies-on-the-head obsession. No pile of folded laundry is safe as she rifles through searching for the favourite: her brother’s ‘anty pants’. We have been supermarket shopping with anty pants.

Then there are the potions made from all manner of vile and disgustingness, (she’s only just getting started here but the bugs have already headed for the hills).



Then the fact that she now spends an inordinate amount of time sneaking into the doghouse. With books. Esme is disgusted beyond dog words. Apparently, as far as Esme is concerned, her house has been infected with toddler germs and she’d rather have a bath (oh no she wouldn’t) than go back in her kennel. While I’m trying to figure out a fumigation protocol that our dog will sign off on, she is wearing this little number night and day.



Finally, there’s the attitude. Mostly a joy, but sometimes this child is truly the One Armed Devil. And neither the OAD or her Mum are much looking forward to Thursday’s visit to the hospital to remove a cast and a sticky-out wire on a, hopefully, beautifully mended finger. Gulp.

As the mother of a child that once bit the dentist ( not Smitonius , I hasten to add ), I wish you luck ! The look in those eyes promises an interesting time for all involved ...and I love the wearing of knickers on head ....done with such flair !

I laughed out loud (as mother's of sometimes possessed children only can). I have those underpants for my son and he won't wear them. But then again, he doesn't want to wear any... Thanks for dropping by my blog!

Your kid is hilarious, and:

I'm loving those red pants on the head. I particularly like them with the green and red outfit. SO worthy of a trip to the supermarket.

My 3-y-o and I went to Safeway in Brunswick the other day. One of us was wearing our coat upside-down - but as both of us are big girls who can dress ourselves, nobody said anything lest it cause embarrassment.

I am HEARING you loud and clear! But I really just can't fathom how this angelic little creature could be causing so much mahem ;) The undies....classic shot!

CurlyPops said...

I can't decide which is funnier - the undies shot or the dog kennel!
At least she's working tirelessly on building up her immune system..he he he

Cindy said...

We have the undie hat attire too - not quite sure the attraction, but perhaps they can have a runway of undie hats one day. Poppy has reached maximum diva too and it does take so much of your time. Good luck with the cast.

Cass said...

What is it about undies on the head. Lucy is always putting someone's undies on her head.

Loz and Dinny said...

Aaaah yes - the undies hat - a winner at last Melbourne Cup's Fashion on the Field, I believe. Edie prefers to sport my undies just to parade in front of me just how far I have fallen from undies grace ... functional and on last legs comes to mind. Good luck with the Doctor, my friend ... remember there is always licorice!

LOL! Thank goodness for not having children and being able to enjoy the joyful stories of others :-) This is too funny!

klaudia said...

Hahaha so funny!!!! I enjoy those kiddy stories so much, children have such crazy ideas and I am sure they have reasoning behind them! I just cant wait to have some of my own!It will be so much fun:)
All the best for Thursday and a lot of energy before then!!:)

I really like the last photograph. I really captures her personality.

As the mother of He-who-is-least-likely-to-arrive-to-adulthood-with-all-his-digits-attached, aka The Walking Wound, I feel your pain.

Hope all your munchkin's wee little digits are intact upon reveal day.
You obviously have the necessary sense of humor required to parent such a monkey child.
