The secret diary of a demented mother aged 36.5.I decided to take my lot to the cinema last weekend. The weather wasn't too wonderful so I couldn't do the park .
I like the park. All of mine are old enough to require very little help any more, so having waddled over there, I can sit my hugely pregnant body down on a protesting bench and vegetate in the sunshine until its time to go home again.
Of course, now I sit there contemplating another three or four years of pushing a new one on the baby swing and panicking about the roundabout, but I've reached that bit of pregnancy now where it seems impossible to believe a baby is ever going to come out of this body.
Emma is perfectly happy if she can find someone to kick a ball about with. Kieran is still at the age where hanging upside Upside

This is basically an educated guess on how high a stock could go in the near future.

They all need to get out of the house at least once a day - and I need them to as well!
While they are perfectly capable of amusing themselves without too much input from me, their definition of amusement and mine seem to be entirely different at the moment.
They like to run around screaming or jumping on and off the furniture - I like them to do quiet drawing or reading.

The Awash Valley is important agriculturally and has hydroelectric plants. with toys and games, they can find nothing better to do than pretending the floor is a shark-infested sea and the furniture is the dry land to be jumped on.
So the cinema seemed like a good place to be.
Armed with sweets, drinks and tickets, we found seats not too near the front for Carys and not too near the back for Emma. I spent five minutes propping Carys up with coats to try to stop the seat from swallowing her up. She then promptly wanted the toilet!
I insisted on Kieran going too as otherwise, bitter experience told me, he would wait until the opening credits Opening credits, in a television program, motion picture or videogame, are shown at the beginning of a show and list the most important members of the production. They are usually shown as text superimposed on a blank screen or static pictures, or sometimes on top of action in the before deciding he needed to go. So we trailed off to the loo and back again and had the inevitable argument about whether sweets should wait for the film proper to start or whether the advertisements count.
By the time the film started, Kieran had finished his drink, plus most of his sweets and needed the loo again. Carys meanwhile remembered that the Jungle Book 2 has "that scary scar·y

Emma divided her time between taunting Kieran with how much popcorn she had left and pretending that we didn't belong to her at all. I take comfort from the fact hardly any of the other parents in the cinema seemed to be enjoying themselves either, but it whiled away another couple of hours of the weekend and the children did say they had enjoyed themselves when they got home. Has it inspired them to change their play? Oh yes " my living room floor is now a tiger-infested jungle apparently and the furniture is the trees which little monkeys This list includes individual non-human primates (capuchin monkeys, squirrel monkeys, Rhesus Macaques, and marmosets) who are in some way famous or notable.
