Inquisitive children

Our adorable 4 year old who is named son 2 is always inquisitive and doesn't believe that anything will hurt him. If you say, careful you'll fall off that climbing frame he'll have to try it our for himself. Last night, he started playing with my perfume that I'd stupidly left on the side. I told him not to spray it as it would sting his cut arm (from another incident that day), as I go to the run the bath for bedtime I hear the loudest scream. He'd sprayed the perfume right in his eye, and stayed screaming for a good 10 minutes. After he'd calmed down he asked me to hide the perfume from him so he didn't hurt himself again. Maybe he's learnt a lesson, or everytime he smells Chanel Adore in his life it will bring back the memory of stinging eyes.

Son 1 is in Year 1 and we've had the letter reporting they will have sex and relationship education. Seems a bit young but hey, apparently he said they'll be talking about 'feelings', a bit fluffy for me but its a start. The only problem is that I've explained about the birds and the bees in another way, see previous post "Oh the lies I tell" and it will be embarrassed if he explains this to his teacher.

My boys (5 and 2) are just the same tell them not to do something and they do it. Cloth ears me thinks...

I feel like my mum when I end up saying "told you so", boys will be boys. My friends say that girls do it as well.

Ooh but how boring would life be if they were not so cheeky and inquisitive?
. . .This is what I tell myself when I find £60 of make up streaked over Princess' face . . . .

Wow £60, that would upset me. The baby keeps playing with my make-up at the moment. Also just found he's drawn all over our kitchen stools with felt tip. Lots of scrubbing to get it off!!
