Croc On A Rock (Day 15) Dr. Croc

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
When the kid’s throwing up
And the poop never stops
We parents need some beer…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!

What do you think to my version? Better or worse? I like to think it’s an accurate representation of what can happen over the holidays. Children get ill and it becomes a vicious circle that never seems to end. As soon as they have recovered and you send them into nursery/school they bring home another disease that plagues the house with doom and gloom. But fear not dear readers. For our very own Christmas Crocodile has just the remedy we require.

Both boys have been under the weather for a while now. With signs that the youngest is starting to recover, the eldest is back where he started. Feeling very sorry for himself. So today the Christmas Crocodile took it upon himself to be a doctor and see if he could help the boys. He checked their temperatures and listened to their heartbeats, much to their amusement as it tickled. He prescribed lots of rest, fluids and snuggles on the sofa while watching their favourite films. All in all a very well-educated professional I thought. Why you may ask? Well, he told me that I should eat more doughnuts! Nomnomnomnom!!!!

I wonder what the Christmas Crocodile will get up to tomorrow?

Croc On A Rock (Day 14) Annoying Christmas PEN!

It’s ironic isn’t it. As a child you absolutely love loud flashing toys. You can’t get enough. As an adult you absolutely loathe them. Your eyes instantly wince and you find yourself banging your head against the wall hoping to get a concussion.

Today the Christmas Crocodile brought gifts for the boys. An activity book and a charming musical Christmas tree pen…yes, charming. I love how ear-splitting loud it is and how out of tune the song is. No, really. It’s great. It’s fabulous. Ok, I might have gone a little mad because all I have heard all day is that damned pen! And breathe. Just think, it’s all part of the fun. The boys love it. I can suck it up. Might be drinking a bit of Bucks Fizz out of my mug for a while to deal with the insanity. hahahahaha

Croc On A Rock (Day 13) Crocodile Love

Oh love! Such a sweet and beautiful feeling. It makes you feel invincible, that you can achieve your dreams and fly high. It’s extremely delicate and easy to break should it accidentally slip from your hands. That’s all it takes. One tiny little slip and SMASH! It shatters into thousands of tiny pieces. Broken and no longer beautiful. Just a mess on the floor waiting to be cleaned up.

It would appear that last night the Christmas Crocodile had a date. A date that went into the early hours of this morning. We stumbled sleepy-eyed into the lounge to see a romantic scene of coffee cups and candles. The Christmas Crocodile looked very besotted and dreamy-eyed. I remember that rush you get when you go on a date with someone new. Well, to be totally honest with you I still get it with my husband now. He has never stopped giving me butterflies. He still takes my breath away. Ok, ok I will stop before I get all lovely dovey.

Hurrah the tree is up! Eldest took much delight in decorating it while dancing about to the Transformers G1 movie (1986) soundtrack. It’s a little tradition of ours. Youngest plonked himself in a box with tinsel and baubles which entertained him for ages. I lit a Christmas candle and poured myself a tiny glass of port as I sat back and watched over the scene in front of me. My heart was dancing with happiness as I watched my boys getting into the Christmas spirit. It’s days like today that remind me how lucky I am and it IS the little things that make life worth while. Cheers!

Croc On A Rock (Day 12) Crocodile Rock!

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock!!!

Have you ever been woken up by a singing crocodile? Lucky for us this is not the first time. The very distant sounds of a piano could be heard coming from the boy’s room this morning.

IMG_0110.JPG

Sure enough we go to check it out and the Christmas Crocodile is singing his little Croc head off while dancing along the boys toy piano. Truly a bizarre sight that strangely looks so right. Eldest was jumping about on his bed while youngest was copying in his cot. Peas in a pod these two.

For the rest of the day we got the Christmas tree down from the attic and set up in the lounge. Not decorated yet as we wanted to see how the kitten takes to it. So far so good. Tomorrow will be the real test with baubles and tinsel!

I wonder what the Christmas Crocodile will get up to tomorrow.

Croc On A Rock (Day 11) Special Delivery

A wrapped up parcel is always intriguing to a curious person. Especially if it’s not addressed to you. You start to think about the possibilities of what hidden treats await inside. You wonder if anyone would notice a small tear, “A quick peek won’t hurt, surely?” you tell yourself. It’s just so damn tempting! The desire to know. It’s exciting and torture! But you go against your natural instinct, leave well alone and dream about the day someone sends you a parcel out of the blue.

Crocodiles however, they don’t control themselves. Nope. They simply tear through the packaging like it’s a zebra’s hide and devour the contents. This was the scene we stumbled upon today when looking for said crocodile. He very quickly become an angry and annoyed crocodile as he had just discovered the chocolate decorations and was desperate for a taste. If he’s lucky he may get a chance to sample one when we decorate the tree. Maybe.

A very special parcel had arrived for the boys this morning all the way from Devon. Their grandparents had sent them a few Christmas treats to enjoy in the lead up to the big day. Books, chocolate and some bath time finger puppets. A child’s idea of heaven and it’s utter bliss to see how happy the little things make them.

For the rest of the day we slowly started to decorate the house putting up tinsel and getting out the singing toys, much to my husbands annoyance. Hehe. We have four! Four crazy singing dancing Christmas toys that do nothing but sing and dance all day! Fun right?

Croc On A Rock Day 9 and 10

Ohhhhh my head! I feel dizzy and want to just cry into my oversized mug of tea. I am hanging! Apologies for last postings it has been a mad few days! Mad but totally awesome!!!

Day 9

Today we discovered the Christmas Crocodile trapped in a glass case of emotion. We are not entirely sure how he got there or why but the boys found it hilarious. For the rest of the day the Christmas Crocodile smelled like earl grey. My eldest found it amusing that the crocodile had torn some of the tea bags and left trails of tea about the house. Me on the other hand didn’t find it amusing as it was a waste of good tea. And I had to hover it all up! Urghhh

Day 10

Oh what a night. We stumbled upon a messy scene in the kitchen this morning. It would seem the Christmas Crocodile had been having a few too many. I knew exactly how he felt as I was hanging myself. But I am so lucky to have such caring boys doing their best to look after me. Eldest tucked me in on the sofa and Youngest gave me much-needed hugs. A very lazy slow Sunday here in The Burrow. Much needed!

The lesson here kids is don’t mix your drinks, ever! It may seem like a good idea but it isn’t! It really isn’t! Jäger bombs are the devil!

Croc On A Rock (Day) 8 Oh Croc But It’s Cold Outside!

I never realised how soft and fluffy snow can be until today. We awoke to a picturesque scene that you often find on Christmas cards. Some had settled on the bedroom window and so I popped my paws out to welcome our enchanting new friend. COLD! So very cold! I stupidly forgot how COLD snow is and retreated before I froze. But it’s still ever so pretty to look at. Our own little snow globe right on our front door. YAY!

Today the Christmas Crocodile had made a new friend, literally. A snowman! They spent the day making snow angels and having snowball fights much to the boys’ amusement. Eldest had a quick (and I mean like a few seconds) play in the snow before running inside to the warmth. Unfortunately both boys are still ill, youngest is the worse-off at the moment so he watched from the window. But the snow falling made him smile and giggle. Every-time my husband tried to move him away from it he started to cry. JUST TOO CUTE!!!

We spent the rest of the day cuddled up under blankets watching The Snowman and pretending the duvet was the snow. A fun WARM game I highly recommend.
