In which she abandons shoes for mayhem.

The girls are pretty much having the time of their lives this week – this we knew. What I was surprised by is that Auntie Rhi is possibly having more fun than the girls. (I knew she’d have fun – I just thought there would be a certain degree of overwhelmed that went with it!)

Here’s a series of messages we exchanged earlier:


Rhi: Best. job. ever. It’s going to be hard going back to shoes!

Me: A pirate (N.) and an Indian princess (Bee) walk into a bar and trip over a giraffe…

Rhi: More like, ‘Giraffe – it’s what’s for dinner…’

Tuesday she turned the entire house into a zoo with the girls’ snuffed animals, yesterday she made a crazy-cake and face-painted the girls, today it’s helping them pull together dress-up outfits and snuffed animals to slaughter… Yeah, the girls aren’t going to like going back to “real life” any more than Auntie Rhi is!

    After watching 101 Dalmatians the girls decided to trade the zoo in for a safari. Sme f them were sent out of the front room to college animals, put them into a show box, and then bring them back….to the skinner. I made sure they weren’t actually desnuffing the animals.

    As a rule, I try not to read blogs about people’s children. But with your title for this post (which rules) I had to see what it’s about. Your snippets of life remind me of the show LOUIE. Clever, brief but strong — really placing you right in the heart of the absurdity of child-centered situations..

    Wish I had an Auntie Rhi to keep me (and maybe the kids) entertained.
