Thump thump thump...

Who is this elephant that's living in our house? And what happened to my little boy?

Chickie appears to be physically incapable of walking, stepping quietly, sitting properly and well, being quiet for more than a moment lately. These days he galumphs* around the house like an elephant. stomping instead of walking, running most of the time and rather than place his posterior into a chair like a normal person, he almost launches himself into it.

All rather strange when his teacher commented on how quiet and well-behaved he is at school. On second thoughts - that's probably why we have an elephant at home!

In other news, I'm updating my template shortly. I was going to fiddle around with doing a picture like I had before, but for now I'm just going to use a free template (cos, I'm lazy like that). I'm going to go through my links and tidy them up so if any one links to me, but I haven't included you, please comment and let me know.

* I saw the word used on Frogdancer's blog and it immediately made me think of Chickie!

Ok, I've updated the template and my list of links but I haven't quite figured out how to insert the list. I'll do it later - getting too late to think straight now.

Btw, in case anyone asks - no that's not me in the template.

Further to your comment, I'm just fine. I seem to have lost my internet voice though. Can't say why for sure. Still hoping to get it back.

Thanks very much.

Wait till the thump thump thump is not just his movements but is also very loud music coming from his bedroom. Even when they're locked away in their rooms they're still loud. Enjoy the peace while you can!

Seems Blogger has some new templates. Looks good.

Actually it's not a blogger template DB. If it was, it would probably have a handy 'insert your links here' bit :)

It looks very swish! Maybe Chickie should try some tap-dance classes? Channel some of that galumph energy...

Great new look!!

Think he's bad now, wait 'til the hormones start flowing.

Nice new look!

give it a few years and you won't hear the stomping over the loud riotous laughing about anything that sounds inappropriate and loud music.

Oooh! A new look. Loves it.

I like the template!

I wish I went through what you're going through...the grass is always greener, isn't it? Travis is so quiet I'm constantly checking on him and I have to yell at him to be louder so I can hear him! lol
