Littlest one and the digging
It all started calmly with a purple plastic spade and a flowerbed. I was laid back Mum, enjoying my spot in the sunshine after hanging out the umpteenth load of post holiday washing.
Then I noticed the mound of soil on the grass getting bigger...... Now, I'm not precious about mud on the lawn I promise, but I was thinking if this enthusiasm for digging continues in its current vein.........well I'll have a mountain of the stuff to deal with I don't nip this in the bud.
And so I. told. him. off. Yes, a shock to those who know me in real life, I actually told one of my children off (I'm not good at the whole discipline thing). I asked him if he could keep the mud with the other mud. His reaction? Well he sat there huddled in a ball and it could have gone badly......
.......but Rose (my other kitten) saved the day with her remarkable skills of distraction, i.e. she walked past. Phew.
