British Mummy Blogger of the Week

>> Sunday, 1 November 2009

It may be the end of half term. It may be raining cats and dogs and even small rodents outside, forcing us to cancel our planned expedition to Horse Guards Parade to watch the Changing of the Guards (part of our plan to experience London to the full before we leave it). It may even be the first of dark and dreary November today. But I am relaxed and rested. And do you know why?

Because the Boys' uncle and aunt are in town.

Let me tell you, there is nothing as likely to allow you to catch up on a whole load of household tasks (plus writing a Sunday morning blog post), than having your children distracted by an uncle who has been expressly summoned to town to erect the Lego monstrosity he bought for your eldest son's birthday.

My brother - and his girlfriend, bless her; now that's true love - have spent the weekend kneeling on the floor fiddling with teeny tiny fridges, motor bikes, and satellite dishes as they try to decipher the coded instructions to make a Lego City. Hmm. Giving up your weekend to spend it with two small boys and a whole load of fiddly plastic shrapnel? I call that making good on family ties.

Or, cosmic payback for buying the present in the first place.

So this morning's Blogger of the Week may be lucky enough to escape Lego syndrome, having only daughters (at least so far), but something tells me she'll be busy enough dealing with the trappings of 3 little girls under 3 not to notice that. PlanB - who has just about the scariest photo of herself I've ever seen on the BMB website - writes of herself:

"I'm a 32 year old mum of three girls, L is 2 1/2 and A and S are 10 month old identical twins. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and a Proper Job which I do three days a week. We live in London. "

And not only does she have identical twin girls to deal with, but her older daughter is doing a very good impression of a superhero to boot...

I think the lego building is definitely cosmic payback. ;0)

CM, definitely. And when my brother and his girlfriends have their own kids? More of the same when we come to give presents!

I quite enjoyed assembling the Lego kits. Not so keen on stepping on the discarded bits later.

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much. Very proud and delighted.

Sharon - lego shrapnel - that's what it's known as in this house...

PlanB, you are very very welcome
