It’s certain that some days I’m actually running a circus rather than a household.
It really is so very hard to describe the colourful chaos that 4 year old twin boys can create.
There’s the fighting over who gets to sit next to the window in the new car. And oh! The antagonizing! The way they deliberately push each other’s buttons only the way that siblings can.
Stealing and running off with each other’s favourite toy for the sake of wanting to be chased. The inevitable tears when someone falls splat on their face from running too fast.
Then, just when I’m ready to run away to join the circus, Mr Surfer joins in with rumble, tumbles and tickles sending them to peak levels of hysteria.
You know that crucial moment after kids laugh so hard and so much that in a blink of an eye things swing completely the other way and it all turns to custard?
Full on, people. It’s FULL. ON.
Same at yours? Yup. Thought so.
Over this last rainy, miserable weekend, we were fortunate to have sent to us some fun, circus themed items to keep us entertained, including a DVD copy of the “Toby’s Travelling Circus: Roll Up. Roll Up!”
With 2 little clowns of my own(and one big one) under my big top, everyone seemed to wear the clown nose with natural flair.
Already familiar with the show from ABC4Kids, the twinions were ecstatic to watch the DVD. Packed with 8 episodes, the stories and positive messages, kids can follow 7 year old Toby’s journey as the world’s youngest ringmaster and with his friends, learn how to make the impossible possible.
It’s a great watch for the twinions and just quietly, for this Mama, a nice change from all things Thomas.
