Well we have actually been back from our holidays and getting back to life for over a week now but it’s taken a while to get back into the swing of things, and actually accept that we’re home… but we are, for now and here is how we got on… you can make your mind up as to whether it was successful or not…
Yesterday I spent the whole afternoon on my own with my girl. I don't think we've done that since the boy was born two years ago. I really loved it. We had a coffee date, shopping, swimming and dinner. Monday afternoon is our new date afternoon before she heads off to school next September. I think we both missed the cheeky little man to keep us on our toes though.
Well that's it. The jolly is officially over. Nanny Pat has gone home (😭) the boy cried, don't blame him, the holiday is done, the final treat day for the father in laws birthday has been had and after 4 weeks of co parenting everyday of some description it's back to just me and my two babies all day everyday. We're not a bad team as it goes so we'll be just fine.
Let me tell you something about this little team of mine. This team that this morning I professed to be a 'good' one. Well today, whilst mildly (massively) hungover, we braved soft play where, for the first time in almost 12 months of being potty trained, my daughter shit herself. I had no spare clothes, why would I? I washed her trousers in the sink and spent 20 minutes drying them under the dryer whilst mums came in and out with the sympathetic/slightly judge eye and my daughter stood bare bummed. The shame. We left the house in British summer time but left soft play in full blown winter and raced the rain clouds home. We lost. The boy refused to nap. We lost George Pig who remains un-located and left the boy completely devo at bed time. Upon said bed time the girl professed her eyes, ears, elbow, face, leg and hair hurt. How do you stop hair hurting. I am done. I am going to bed because we're going to Thomas Land tomorrow 🤗🤗
So perhaps not the most aesthetically pleasing what with the bins and the cables but you know, the modern world and all. I just couldn't help but lean out my daughter's window and take this photo this morning as the sun came up. The photo doesn't really do it justice but the world looked peaceful and colours so very beautiful.
Keeping it autumnal 🙄we took the scooter and the bike to the park today, it went about as well as you would expect with a two and three year old. That basically means both item ended up hanging off the pram that no child sat in, as they ran in different directions. Standard. They enjoyed it though, and it was surprisingly warm so that'll do.
