6WS - Time flies, the babies are growing

My own babies are no longer babies and trying to take photos of teenage boys requires too much effort and lots of pleading anyway. So I take photos of my grandson and my fur baby because they don't argue with me or hide their heads.

My grandson is almost 9 months old - how that time has flown. He came for a sleepover last night and I forgot to grab his bag of toys from my son's house. No need though, because it turns out that nani has fun toys anyway, a front load washing machine provides hours of fun because he's fascinated by the washing going around and around.

Plus nani has empty coffee cans that are fantastic fun to roll around. How easy it is to entertain and amuse babies? I pulled a handful of colourful silicone cupcake moulds, plastic lids and measuring cups out of the drawer and he was in his element. Who needs to spend gazillions of dollars on toys anyway?


Molly, our fur baby will be 12 weeks old tomorrow. She graduated from puppy school on Wednesday night and was the last puppy on the floor after a game of musical chairs (without the chairs). The aim was to walk in a circle with the music and then when the music stops they have to sit down. Last one to sit down each round is out of the game. She won.

She's captured everyone's heart and has a delightful personality. That's not to say that she doesn't have some annoying little puppy habits that we need to work on. Like chewing through the hose that runs from our washing machine to the front lawn, or chewing through the power cord on the pump in the fish pond.

Hubby has now replaced everything with heavy duty chew proof hose and a cover for the fish pond cord. We now also have all shoes in a cupboard and not by the back door. So we're puppy proofing the yard and child proofing the house for the grandson. Fun times.

Hope you've all had a good week

Cheers, Fi

    1. Thanks for your visit, Fiona. Can you describeI u what happens when you try to comment on a wordpress blog? For me, all the problems arrive with commenting on blogger and blogspot blogs! I have to use my Google profile and go through endless hoops of wriggly word verification and proving I'm not a robot!

    2. Viv - not even sure how I get a message back to you - because I now can’t even comment via Facebook or using my wordpress account but I'll put it here.
      The problem I'm having at the moment with Wordpress blogs is that where before I used to enter my email, name and blog address when I left a comment, now when I put in my email address it picks it up and says it's a wordpress email so I have to log in with wordpress. All well and good except my wordpress account is because I also write for World Mom Blogs and I don't want to be directing 6WS commenters there when I want them to go to my Blogger address.
      It's no longer giving me the option to use just my details, I'm assuming there's been an upgrade at Wordpress or Blogger which is causing the hiccup. These things happen from time to time but it's very frustrating.

      If anyone has any suggestions I'd be very grateful - you can email me at inspiration2dream@gmail.com - thanks

    1. Elaine, my puppy will be the most intelligent pup in the universe as long as there's food involved for her to do something. She does like her food just a little bit

  4. They are both adorable.

    My babies loved nothing more than a pan and a wooden spoon to keep them happy.

  10. Oh you are so right...little ones don't need a ton of toys!!! My grandkids always loved to play with the Tupperware from the cupboards too.

    Your baby is adorable...and so is your little doggy!

    Happy Saturday!

    1. Linda - I've just been and checked out your post. I then checked your daughters blog - 9 kids, I'm an amateur at grandparenting compared to you

  11. Yes, the kids would rather play with the stuff under the kitchen sink, stuff in drawers, etc much more than the toy box full of toys. He is getting so big. And the puppy too. I still need to send you a pic of our grandog Bailey. They look much alike.
