  • The youngest slowly stops being treated like the plague by siblings
  • The oldest starts to be embarrassed about crappy test results in subjects that the younger siblings have beaten him in
  • Swear words become cool instead of naughty
  • No one is fooled into thinking carrot sticks are better than LCM's
  • Pizza is suddenly better than Macca's
  • Hair grows and is removed in secret rituals involving using all of mums new razors and leaving old ones in the packet
  • Mothers start hiding razors in secret hard to reach places that hairbrushes used to be in
  • Hair grows in the bathtub and needs secret ritual involving lawn mowers and weed killer to remove it
  • Hair also grows in plug holes and hard to reach corners
  • High 5 turns into Death Meets Sally in a Doorway and Cuts Her 3@#*#^ Head Off
  • I love you mummy is now pronounced "don't you know anything" (with a silent stupid)

My cousin Cyndy aka anoymous has the whole blogging world talking.......who is she, who is she........why doesnt she blog ?

well, she is my cousin, mother of three totally original, strong & unique blue stars like herself. She is real, strong, complex & beautiful. She is earthy & sensible ( sorry Cyndy) . we sahre a common Uncle ( sorry uncle Al) and have known each other all our lives & I mean lives.
She likes me just the way I am & knows all of my secrets- well one in particular & thats another story.
I wish she would start a weblog- she is so much more fun than I am.........

yes, I know all about the secret hair removing rituals & the 'boy in front of video camera' thing.

Where did she go during History, that is my question & more to the point, did she learn more than she would have in history class???????

Oh, how easy it is for me to be a smart ass when its not my son doing the wopping............

You are a great mother michelle- they are only with you because you have something to teach them.......
