Today is my day off from going to OUR shop, I get to stay at home with the littlies while Mr Messy and Drama Teen man the shop. And today our new assistant C starts work too! She is the big sister of one of Little Prince's friends and we are friends with her parents. Her Dad approached Mr Messy a few weeks ago to ask if we had any vacancies for a Saturday girl, he wants her to start learning the value of earning her own money and to give her a taste of working life. Mr Messy said he wasn't sure if we had enough work to keep both her and Drama Teen occupied and the business can't afford to employ someone else right now. C's Dad was really keen to have her work in OUR shop and offered to pay her himself (via us, so she won't know!!) so Mr Messy agreed to give her a try. He's planning to have the girls tidy, dust and polish the furniture, vac the floor and do some washing up. When he called this morning he'd just sent them to the Florist to pick up this weeks fresh arrangement. When they got back he was going to leave Drama Teen in the shop and take C to see our friend who owns the Designer Baby Boutique as she wants a headshot for a magazine article she is being featured in.

Back to my morning! When I got up Little Prince had one of his fingers wrapped in a blood spotted tissue!! He had quite a big cut, which he said he got from a rug in his room?!? I made sure the cut was all clean and covered it in a plaster, which knowing Little Prince won't stay there very long! And I'm going to remove the rug from his room, just in case!! He's just had a screaming, banging tantrum all because I asked him to get dressed, but he is up in his room and hopefully he will be dressed when he comes back down! I'm not sure what the problem with getting dressed was either!! He's not behaved like this for a few days and I'd hoped he was calming down some, but it seems the "wild and crazies" could be back!!

Princess Lollipop didn't seem sleepy so she had a later nap. But before she did have her sleep, Drama Teen's Boyfriend arrived! Which was a bit of a surprise as Drama Teen was still at OUR shop!! They had an argument over text messages each blaming the other for the mix up, but ending up with Drama Teen agreeing to get an early bus so Boyfriend wouldn't be here with us on his own for too much longer. Little Prince mugged Boyfriend into helping him make (and eat!) popcorn, he was still hungry when they'd eaten the first batch, so off the boys went to make another batch. As I predicted would happen, only a handful got eaten before Little Prince was full!!

Drama Teen arrived home just after Princess Lollipop had woken up, and she was delighted to see her sister back home. Drama Teen played with her for a little while before going upstairs with Boyfriend to watch a film. They are only allowed to be in her bedroom with the door fully open and Little Prince goes to "visit" all the time lol. Little Prince started to watch Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, but got distracted by various things and lost interest part way through.
