Josiah's teacher told me this morning he has been cheeky in class this week and reallllly pushing it. At first he tried to deny it, then he seemed to think it was awfully funny.
So I just told him that since he has been wasting so much of Miss Kerr's time, Josh and I were going to waste some of his time; and that once he finished his homework, he had to write out two pages of "I must not be cheeky at school". - Melly - #TeamMarina
He doesn't think it's funny anymore. - Melly - #TeamMarina
He has shut himself in his room (he didn't slam the door, he didn't dare!). I'm happy for him to stay there ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
He's only just finishing the lines now. - Melly - #TeamMarina

Apparently I annoy my husband by turning the pages of my book too roughly... #whatthe #fb

Josiah calls the HP on his Pokemon cards "Helen & Pete" :oD
Had to look up HP, but yeah, Hit Points describes us pretty well. Either I will slay you with my 'don't shit with me' approach, or Pete will talk you into submission with big words and on occasion, whimsy ;-) - Marina's Godmother :-)

About the field of poppies: "It's beautiful!" - Melly - #TeamMarina
She's crying because it's finished and she wants to watch it again straight away and I said she has to have a nap first, hahaha. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm impressed she made it through her first viewing without freaking out about the Wicked Witch. I certainly didn't make it through. Go Emily! - Corinne L
She tried to rehash the plot and it came out all jumbled and awfully cute. About Dorothy and the girl in the bubble and dat wizard and de yion. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!

I just realised I've had my oven mitts longer than I've had my husband. No wonder they're looking worse for wear. #fb
And does your husband as well? - Uli
Put them both on EBAY and see if the used mitts or the used husband goes for more. - Steve C Team Marina
Josiah was yapping about Minecraft for ages, so now I'm making him read about gem stones and mining. #fairsfair #fb
Helen just goes for 'David, I am not interested.' As indeed do I at times. - Pete : Team Marina
That doesn't always stop Josiah! He tries, but 30 seconds later there is just "one more thing" he HAS to mention before he forgets ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Maybe he can keep a Minecraft diary? - Pete : Team Marina
I allow David to talk about his games at length every so often, on the understanding this covers him for a while ;) - Pete : Team Marina
A diary is a good idea! I think he just needs a sounding board sometimes. Channeling his enthusiasm into reading today worked though, he was quite interested, and was particularly excited to learn about foolsgold. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Yeah, that sounds a good idea too :) - Pete : Team Marina
Have him learn about lasers and quantum tunneling next? - Mo Kargas
It also doubled as his homework reading - he's finished all the class readers so he can read whatever he wants now. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Lasers yes, I have no idea what quantum tunneling is so maybe I should read about that first? Or else I'll just tell him "Ask Mo" if he has questions. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Quantum tunneling is when Scott Bakula breaks into your house from beneath. - Pete : Team Marina
^ this guy. THIS GUY. LOL - Mo Kargas
That show was so good. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I see that Scott Bakula is in the latest NCIS spin off... - Pete : Team Marina
When they were little, I used to go for long walks with my nephews, one nephew at a time. Half the walk would be them telling me about whatever game they were playing. I just smiled and nodded through most of it. The rest of the walk, I had them actually have a conversation. :-) - bentley
When my mind (and patience!) is up to it, I like to ask him questions about the game, or get him to expand on a concept he's been considering. I don't understand it, and I'm honestly not interested, but I know how important it is for children to be listened to, and I remember how good it felt when I was a kid and an adult took an interest (however feigned!) in something that was exciting to me. - Melly - #TeamMarina
But are you smiling, Pete? - bentley
I should think not ;) - Pete : Team Marina
