Had yesterday off sick, back at work today, still fairly under the weather. The two kids are pretty crook, so it's been a very indoorsy few days. If I hear the phrase 'got a snotty nose' said in a whingey voice one more time, I may finally snap.

The time I spent with the two lowercase vowels while capital E went up to Brisbane was good. We coped pretty well (apart from the whole sleeping aspect), and had a nice time together. It felt good.

Little e and I made our first comic together, hopefully the first of many. I drew up the panels, and wrote out the words as she told the story, then I got her to draw the pictures, and we both coloured it in. It was a fairly sad story about a girl called Rita who wanted a baby but didn't know where to get one. Heady stuff.

Aw, good stuff with the comic!! Have you read the online comic Axecop? Similar collaboration between a 5 year old boy and his much older brother. I find it mildly amusing, but even the mention of it makes my husband literally start crying and choking with laughter. Apparently it's a guy thing!

Don't you mean lowercase vowels??

"...who wanted a baby but didn't know where to get one..." LOL! Sorry, Coles and Woolies don't have them, have you tried Babies R Us? :-) Is this her way of saying that she wants a baby brother or sister, do you think?

Jo- Yeah that is a pretty funny comic. Very 'boy'.

Kim- oops yes! That's what you get for trying to be more clever than you actually are. FAIL as the kids would say.

Laetitia- More worryingly I think she wants her OWN baby..
