Strange Comments and Brain workings

Hello there, I turned on my blog and behold three comments. But at least two of them are strange! Are they advertorials for someone else?? are they spam?? how do I get rid of them, do I want to?? very bizzare.

It is quite odd really, to hijack someone's personal diary to advertise acne cream!! What kind of person thinks aha, a mum with three kids, SHE will need acne cream. Haha when actually what I need is happy pills (just kidding).

I'm feeling rather tired this afternoon. This morning was a Champion Centre morning and Reuben and I always come home feeling naffed from those. He is in bed, my lovely Champion; and I am using my precious time writing this instead of sleeping. Roo is supposed to be learning to count, 1. 2. but you would not believe how difficult it is for him to learn. He knows how to say 1. 2. even 3. 4. 7. 12 on a good day, but has no idea that it means 1. Red Frog 2. Red Frog. We spent ages with the lovely Jane this morning trying to count those darn frogs. (Mummy can do it quite well actually).

The brain is a strange thing. You only need one little link to be out of order and a whole lot of things don't work properly. We don't even know what is wrong with Roo's brain, (and he looks perfectly normal) but a whole lot of little things are squew wifffy.

Actually is it an amazing learning process for me. I'm finding out lots of cool stuff. Did you know that your brain is programmed so that if I show a baby a new object and say the name of it, (eg "look dear, here is a frog, frog") well they know that it is a frog. Alas that piece of program is slightly skewed in Roo so he doesn't quite connect the two, but it is amazing to think how cleverly we are made isn't it.

Recently I let my 9 year old take apart two old sewing machines, just for fun. It was amazing. It wasn't until we took them apart that we realised how clever they were. They are never going back together again, ever. Our Reuben is a bit like those machines in a way, we look at him and start to realise how amazingly we are all created. I'm so glad we've got him, he is just a real delight to us and so much fun.
