Just four ThingTwo

ThingTwo turns four today. She had a party at Cheeky Monkey's play barn yesterday, and was very excited.

Here's a video I made to celebrate by telling the girls they could choose what they did. It was mostly "play this backwards" and "film this upside down". Given their fondness for gimmicks I've a feeling my kids will eschew Dogme 95 (the overlayed They Might Be Giants track wouldn't be allowed for a start).

Keep the treats coming

This morning as I made pancakes for the kids I explained why we have pancake day, and told ThingOne about Lent. ThingOne froze.

"But WE'RE not Christians, so WE don't have to give up treats do we?"

I confirmed that she wasn't going to have to go without treats until Easter. She visibly relaxed and exclaimed "Phew!"

Sounds like she could do with making a few sacrifices.
