weekly planner

or how I am attempting to teach my kids the passing of time ...
so far everything that has ever happened has happened "yesterday" magical past time that stores all their previous life :P
and the future is as far as 5 minutes from now .. and even that is waaaaaaay toooooooo faaaaaar, noooooooone can survive those looooooooong minutes waiting till the tea is warm not hot ... next day or next week seems like a lifetime of waiting ...

and now
about a half year later since I wrote that ... not much has changed, BUT I have made the pocket planner I was dreaming of!


Obviously
it is not being used as I had planned :D

Random Rambling: Little tricksters are growing!

Five more minutes!
Sam's way of bargaining for anything :D
Sam 2&half

Just two bites!
First milk, no carrots, only potatoes ..
Oli's way of bargaining for sweets ... when he promises to eat some amount of real food in exchange for sweets ... he starts this without even knowing if there is something sweet planned after the meal :D
But I am smart enough to tell him that in this case he will have only some part of that particular dessert afterwards .. sometimes that works better than expected and he eats an extra meatball :P
Oli 5min till 5

Mommy is mine, Daddy is yours.
This is a way for them to divide their domains. They are dividing everything! :D parents, cousins, friends, cartoons, music :D
Of course it works only till the other one gets offered something better... for both of them dealbreaker is that the other ones parent is taking them somewhere even if it is something really booooooooring :D
Both (Sam 3 and Oli 5min till 5)
