Yes, I know it's been a while, and several people have bullied me for an update now. I have been *somewhat* busy ok?!!
Anyway, some snippets for your enjoyment:
Early one morning:
Me: What would you like for breakfast Ember? Porridge?
Em: No, porridge makes me [something Spanish sounding]
Me: Makes you what?
Em: It make me into Dora.
Early another morning, having a 'just-got-out-of-bed' snuggle on the couch.
Em: Thunder's coming!
Me: I can't hear it. I hope there's no thunder.
Em: Yes, it's coming. Thunder's in my ears. It listens to me.
At Amber and Nick's house. Everyone is out on the deck apart from Em, who is in the computer room trying to close the deck door.
Me: Ember don't shut the door please.
Em: Yes, I shut it (getting hysterical). I got to shut it.
Me: No, leave it open, Amber wants it open.
Em: (totally hysterical) No Mummy, the tigers are coming, they going to come in!
Me: There aren't any tigers here. Shea's scared them all away.
Em: No, they coming, the tigers are coming in I got to close it.
Millie (one of the twins) tries to go in the door.
Em: (actually shrieking now) No babies, you can't come in, the tigers, NO!
