This week on Teen Tuesday I'm going to talk about....
The trouble with earphones is that they magically disappear!
The boys can put them down safely in one spot but the next time they look they are gone!
As if by magic!
Oh the hunts that follow then,everywhere turned upside down and the words echoed
'' Has anyone seen my earphones? ''
And of course no one ever has!
As I said before magical!
Earphones also like to get there wires in a tangle.
No matter how neatly you put them away ,when you go back to them they will be tangled.
And how many pairs of ear phones does a teen need?
Quite a few it seems!
And that lovely tinny noise that comes out of the earphones -what bliss!
Just a few joys about ear phones!

This Week Kids I Promise
Its that time of the week again where i have to put my thinking cap on and make a promise to one or all of my children.
Last week I promised to get into the Christmas spirit with the boys....so.... I guess I didn't do bad,we spent a lot of time singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Jingle Bells and we had a lovely trip to the shops to buy Advent Calenders.
So the Christmas spirit is slowly but surely drifting into our home.
This week my promise is;
To Practice Your Spellings Every Night
Now my son and I have a ongoing hatred of spellings,so this is a biggie for us!
It takes quite a considerable amount of work for Chipmunk to retain spellings.
I do everything possible to help him,practice a lot,laminate the actual words onto a matching board,cutting round the actual shape of the letters so he feels the letters as well as hears,sees and writes the words.
Infact I guess you couldn't do much more and still our results are poor :-/
Well last week we had a school project to hand in and so we didn't practice the spellings so much and I know today he will struggle and that makes me sad.
I don't necessarily want a fantastic speller but I don't want to send him into a spelling test feeling unprepared.
Lets cross our fingers and hope this works because even I'm getting despondent with the situation.
Cant wait to see what everybodys promising this week!
We are a little bunch of do gooders aren't we :-)

Six Word Saturday
My six words this week are
This Year Mums Having Advent Calender
Yes this year I have decided (in all my silly wisdom) that I would like a Advent Calender!
Think of the feeling that once in the day I have a little square of chocolate waiting for me!
When will I eat it?
When will I need it most?
Will it be in the morning like the kiddiewinks do?
Or will it be after putting my youngest to bed.
Just think..you do the bedtime routine and know theres a little bit of choccie waiting for you downstairs!
Sounds good to me!
What do you all think :-)
