Let's face it you can't really reason with kids when they are on steroids.
Speaking of steroids and their side-effects, today was definitely a really good day. After last night I sort of thought we were heading towards the usual feeling sad and grumpy, but Bianca was in an excellent mood today. Yes it is fairly frustrating to have to deal with requests for food every 5 minutes or so, but I would far rather have that than dealing with crying and grumpiness.
Earlier today we did some baking. Usually this is a Bianca kind of activity, but today I thought I would include Caitlyn too. She was quite excited and kept trying to taste the sugar, taste the butter, taste the baking soda (which thankfully she hasn't quite mastered the art of opening a container as yet), and of course the mini M&Ms - not many of Caitlyn's allocation made it to her biscuits and instead took a detour to her mouth... She lost interest when she wanted a biscuit and I told her that they would have to be baked first and so she watched Winnie-the-Pooh while Bianca and I finished the biscuits. It was good fun, but Bianca doesn't seem much in the mood to actually eat the biscuits and so Terence will probably take most of it to work tomorrow.
