Christmas No. 2

21st December 2007
4 Days to go till Christmas

tlm fact: I was sicked on by a toddler today. It wasn't pretty and was over the only pair of jeans I've got at the moment.

I'm shattered. Today has been a noisy affair to say the least. We visited missbliss's 4 nieces and nephew. The accompanying troop of adults (made up of missbliss, her parents, brother + girlfriend and of course, me) took the tally to 10.

Many presents were opened on what is christmas number 2 for the kids and for us, much screaming took place, and there were plenty of barbies among other things. The youngest, 2, summed it up quite well, jumping on the spot at the sight of presents screaming "Cris...miss" staccato-esque over and over whilst waving his arms around frantically.

We gorged on mountains of food which included 3 joints, 45 Yorkshire Puddings (YEAH BABY!) and lorry loads of roast potatoes. More playing ensued, racing tractors up and down the corridor using our hands as gates. Missbliss was off bathing the youngest, who following that, promptly threw his stomach full of chocolate, matey bubble bath and goodness knows what else over me. missbliss just sat there laughing, and being happy that his jammies remained clean, pfft - just you wait.

We rounded off the day by tucking them into bed with made-up stories, mine being superior as it involved fairies and more audience interaction. Missbliss maintains her brief was more difficult (christmas, mermaids, and sleeping beauty) By this point, I was tired and could have done with being tucked in myself.

Bring on Christmas number 3.

Aww, most of us have to put up with one Christmas, so you are very lucky, enough to make up for being sicked on. Althought that is always pretty revolting.

Haooy Christmas to you both.

I love entertaining little children... they are very noisy in a very sweet kind of way..

I have 14 nieces and nephews and I love to watch them play... let alone being the one to entertain all of them!!!
