Adult/Child: The Battle

I’ve been getting nostalgic regarding my childhood – like most people I think it would be GREAT to be a kid all over again; just to be so carefree, and wild! In this video I mourn over my loss of childhood, and also take a look at some old photos from when I was a kid. Fun toContinue reading “Adult/Child: The Battle”

KIDS ARE WEIRDOS!

A spot of unfortunate toilet trouble ended up in me coming to one pretty solid conclusion…that kids are weird, and there’s no two ways around it! I mean what would you have done in this situation I found myself in… Every day is another lesson in straight up strangeness. I swear.  If you have aContinue reading “KIDS ARE WEIRDOS!”

Kid’s Tall Tales

This internet age we live in is amazing; it brings humanity closer together, communication has never been easier, there is a wealth of information at our fingertips – and it’s true to say Storytime with John wouldn’t exist without it! So, what’s not to love about that?! This guy knows… Well…whilst I accept all of those points highlighted (especiallyContinue reading “Kid’s Tall Tales”

KIDS MAKE ME SICK.

Kids make me sick. And, no, not just uncomfortable, or a little bit queasy – but down right, pit of the stomach, SICK. It’s just something that they do that can turn that “thank God it’s Friday!” feeling, into “thank God I didn’t eat a large greasy breakfast”…let me run you through Friday’s events realContinue reading “KIDS MAKE ME SICK.”

Arguments with Children

Arguments with children…I don’t know why I even allow myself to be suckered in – EVERY SINGLE TIME. Perhaps it’s some kind of vague ambition to truly educate, and make a difference…so that years in the future the now fully grown child reminisces and admits: “He was right! I’m so thankful he steered me in the rightContinue reading “Arguments with Children”

A Suffocating Child

I remember seeing the little warning notes on plastic carrier bags as a kid…something along the lines of ‘To avoid danger of suffocation, keep away from babies and children!’ And like most people (I imagine) I thought “DURRRRRRRRRR! Why must people constantly be told what is glaringly obvious?!”  Well…hmmm…about that one… Today I wandered into a classroom to beContinue reading “A Suffocating Child”

Playful Heart

I forgot to tell you all something funny that happened a couple of weeks ago…I guess I’ve been pretty caught up and busy with everything as of late! But better late, than never! Right?  You see the new boss called me in – and I don’t know about you…but in those kind of circumstances IContinue reading “Playful Heart”

Kids Go CRAZY.

So there was some weirdness today, as there is every day…actually it is so common place that I feel silly even reporting it to you – but nonetheless I will, as it got me thinking about something… You see I was in the soft play bit of the kindergarten school, and had probably just fellContinue reading “Kids Go CRAZY.”

Curse of the Ninja

Was reminded of this childhood memory by Melanie, after my previous post regarding childhood lies! When I was in primary school, like most kids my age – I used to love The Power Rangers. The kicking, the punching, the flipping, the monsters, and the explosions…I mean, the whole package appealed really. So it wasn’t a rare sight toContinue reading “Curse of the Ninja”
