dog training and bubble blowing!

Bought a tub of bubble mixture from Sainsburys today which Jack really enjoyed and dog bit a few,made me a bit dizzy and cross eyed!!!
Big dog 2 doors away was having a good deep bark so I have been trying to get Martha(dog) to stay calm whilst big dog barks seemed to be getting some where just, had her sitting on the grass whislt he had a go! Calm assertive as the dog whisperer would say...all going great until...splash splash splash whole tub of bubble mixture poured on patio, calm assertive gone, crazy mum back.

surviving jitterbugs

Our 6 yr old went to The FA youth cup last night at St Andrews and came home a changed 'man' He has had a season ticket this season and only used it a handful of times so it was lovely to hear him say that a) he wanted to go and b) he had had a good time. His main concern is the noise and cheering when we score...does he not realise that this is Birmingham City we are talking about well known for being an intimidating club(apparently) and we dont score that much!!!!!
Well my 'new' son waltz into jitterbugs this afternoon, ran off and joined in...amazing a transformation!!
Mean while my 3 yr old usually confident and fun loving child, clung onto me and refused to talk to anyone, only opening his mouth to shovel in large quanties of cake.
He was back to his normal self when he got home and 6 yr old taught him to take his top off and exchange shirts in the garden at the end of a match.
As for the dog well she is transformmed too I have only had to 'remove' her from the TV once today (Dr Junos dog on Me Too must have looked at her!!) and she was golden when she went out.
Strange goings on in this house!!!! Voodoo me thinks!!!
