"Mum, mum, the twins got into something" Zai called yesterday,
so I ran out to the kitchen to find this:

That's right - a whole box of cheerios all over the floor!!

Sometimes you just feel like crying - $6 worth of cereal off to the chooks ( minus 4 bowls they had eaten that morning)! I hope the chooks enjoyed the extravagence & lay LOTS of eggs!!!

I am slightly suspicious it wasn't just the twins enjoying this treat!!

Oh my, those pictures look all to familiar. We had many similar instances at our house. I have discovered that quiet at our house is not necessarily a good thing!

your children are as adorable as your blog says they are. Thank you for your prayers. I am seeing a chiropracter this afternoon and hopefully she will help us start to figure out what the problem is.

Oh dear...well, at least it was Cheerios, which are easily swept up. When I was a kid, I dropped a bottle of vegetable oil on the kitchen floor, and it broke. I thought my Mom was going to have a stroke!

Oh no!! They look like they've had a bit of fun!

Look on the bright side now narn - the twins are now adding dry ingredients to their cooking and not just using butter and eggs!! (maybe they secretly do want to be chefs and not hair stylists)

Renata,
Just wanted to say hi! Thanks for leaving a message on my blog.... I have really enjoyed having a good explore of yours. :) Ah, the country life. It looks wonderful and I look forward to following your family's adventures out there! Was it Brisbane you came from before moving? I'm from Brisbane; only been here about 6 years. Anyway, have a great day!

Yikes...$8...cereal is expensive. A large box here is half that price.

Hope the chickens enjoyed their breakfast.

Renata, I see that Saminda found your blog! I kept feeling like I should introduce you two, since you're my two Australian readers. Do you live by each other?

Looks like a lot of fun! It's hard for me not to be stressed at times like this, but everyone is happier when we can have a laugh (all while lovingly disciplining!)

Oh my goodness! An Australian commenter!!! My kids were so impressed!

I'm SO glad you found my blog! I dearly hope you become a regular visitor...in between cleaning up whole boxes of cheerios!! LOL!

And your picture is adorable!! I want to be your friend!
