Athena & Arlo- July 17

Fighting like cats and dogs pretty much describes these two at the moment. Not all the time, but a lot of it. There has even been a bit of blood drawn, though I think that was an accident. The latest thing seems to be arguments over who is sat on me, or closest to me. Neither of them will show…

Athena & Arlo – June 2017

Joined at the hip is more or less the only way to describe these two this month. There are tears from Arlo if Athena heads into the bathroom and closes the door, which she only does because we’re trying to teach her about privacy, not necessarily within her family but as a general rule – She’d quite happily have him…

Athena & Arlo – May 2017

A couple of weeks before we went away for a week Sam slaved over building a bunk bed for these two, and they spent two nights in their room together before we went away. I was expecting tears and to be sitting in the dark waiting for Arlo to drop off to sleep as I had done when he was…

Athena & Arlo – April 2017

 I know this photo isn’t the normal sort of photo I share for our monthly Siblings posts, but it sums these two up over the past month… running away from me & causing havoc. Either trying to get into something they shouldn’t, get hold of something they shouldn’t or generally just not listening to me! This was at St Pauls…

Athena & Arlo – March 2017

I think both Athena & Arlo have been going through some sort of vast developmental leap, and Arlo has also been pretty miserable due to his back molars starting to break through. There have been wonderful windows of peace, laughter and cuddles but also a lot of the time they’ve both been tearful, tired and not particularly fun to be…

Athena & Arlo – February 2017

Athena has really been embracing her role as ‘Sister’ over the last few weeks. Often she’ll say she has do to do something because ‘I am the sister’. When we get home she will now take off Arlo’s coat, hat and shoes and the best part is that he is so happy for her to do it! He plonks himself…

Athena & Arlo – January 2017

Having almost a month off our normal weekly routines and spending so much time together has done wonders for these two. Of course there are the normal bickers and spats but in general all is smooth sailing with Big A and Little A! There are even some evenings where I can prepare dinner on my own in the kitchen without…

Athena & Arlo – December 2016

The two tiny terrors are reigning supreme this month. They are as thick as thieves, with shenanigans such as: Climbing shelves in the living room to get to my nail varnish (Arlo) then opening the bottles (Athena) and using them to decorate their hands, their table and the floor (thank god we were having the carpet replaced anyway!) Opening a…
