Today marks the first Monday in about 3.5 years that won’t be an M + Daddy day! Many Big Dad Feelings.

much drama here, yoghurthairians. M was offered a place at our first choice school at the end of last week. Which means he's been into the school we were originally allocated for one (1) day, and now starts school again tomorrow at choice #1

M is currently sulking because I wouldn’t agree with him that infinity plus one is bigger than infinity

We are playing being on holiday. M is an ice cream seller. He just sold me a vanilla ice cream, some icy blackcurrants and a sun destroyer, to destroy the sun.

today: leaving picnic for nursery
tomorrow: starting picnic for school

spent the last couple of evenings drinking wine and writing a greasemonkey script (and instructions) to help the nursery parents download all the photos from the nursery's online portal thing before our accounts get pulled on Friday

ME TODAY: oh man I am so tired is parenting always going to be like this forever woe is me

ALSO ME, NOT ENOUGH HOURS PREVIOUS: I really should go to bed but I’m finally starting to understand opencv

M has spent most of today doing Lego (and a bit of baking), so at least all that lockdown telly hasn’t completely destroyed his attention span 🙃

M is helping me put a fez on J. I think this is what we had in mind when we thought we’d make siblings?

Max had a haircut yesterday. I didn’t _say_ ‘make him look like a Goldsmiths undergraduate’, but here we are

me: I'm having a nice evening, the kids were asleep early, my brain isn't complete slurry today!

my brain: let's celebrate by installing another variety of linux on this laptop

Good morning! Please enjoy this JAZZY MONSTER that M drew this morning.

I’m not saying M has been watching a lot of telly during lockdown, but I just noticed him muttering the voiceover to a cbeebies trailer under his breath while playing

just heard the words “because time’s arrow just doesn’t run that way, mate” come out of my mouth while attempting to reason with a four-year-old

how is it that babies know the difference between being soothed while standing up on your creaky back and feet (works) vs when you’re sitting in a comfy chair (does not work)?

know what I’d like? a bath. a reaaaaalll long bath. with a book. and possibly some jazz. jazzbath.
