Journalling reads: When we became parents, we really had no idea what we were letting ourselves in for. I can honestly say that despite having 3 kids, there are still lessons we end up being taught every single day. Some of them are hard and difficult lessons but most of them are just so simple you wonder why you never knew about them before. I think that some of the most important lessons we have learnt from the kids, are that we should always expect the unexpected, never lose our sense of humour and always be very specific when giving any of the kids instructions. This was a really great example of that lesson. Logan wanted to help unpack the shopping. Mark gave him the bucket and simply said “Logan, can you take this upstairs and put in in the toilet please” we were busy so neither of us went with him or checked that he had understood what he was asked to do. He came back downstairs looking so pleased with himself that he had been able to help. It wasn’t until much later when Lukas called us to come upstairs, that we saw just how literally he had taken the instructions, by putting the bucket inside the toilet. It looked so funny none of us could stop laughing. Poor Logan just looked so confused and kept saying “what’s so funny I put it in the toilet like you said” which just made us laugh even more.
