I’m thinking about starting a section on my blog titled: ‘Shit My Kids Destroy’.

It deserves its own special place simply because it happens so bloody often.  And the list of casualties continues to grow – the printer with its touch screen violently torn off, a supposedly unbreakable Pyrex dish, seven iPhone USB cords, one actual iPhone, too many books to count, and my nose. Yes, my nose, which made a god-awful crunching noise for weeks afterwards, and now has a strange lump in the middle. 

Most recently it was my poor MacBook (may it rest in peace). Just before Xmas Lil Sis gave it an impromptu Coke-Soak. I dried it off, popped it near the radiator, and prayed to the laptop Gods and, thank goodness, it was fine. Until  a few weeks later when the sound went, and it stopped charging. Turns out it wasn’t fine after all. Liquid had found its  way into the sealed unit, corroding all the electronicky bits. It was FUBAR’d. 

So now I’m hoping and praying that A: the insurance will cover ‘Wilful Damage by Toddler’, and B: their boffins can recover all my files and photos from the hard drive. Pray for me, people, pray for me.

    […] it’s been. In that time my lovely readers have watched the eldest monkey grow from infant, to cheeky toddler. They’ve laughed at my numerous poo stories, and ooh-ed and aah-ed over the pics of our first […]
