Last week, I breathed a sigh of relief each night the kids were settled in bed and their doors were closed. I still don’t feel great and I’ve really needed the time to recharge my batteries. I always try to remember a phrase that my mum uses: “Young children do not make allowances”, and this is so true when parents experience illness, stress or upset. Winston particularly is being really hard work. Thankfully I know it will just be a stage, and I’m grateful that every day is a new one.
R: I think Ru has struggled with the attention this week for his birthday, but he did have a great time learning how to be a superhero at Rainbow Factory on Saturday. He grabbed his dressing up clothes to take with him, and got really involved. He learnt how to be kind like a prince, and help people like a superhero. These sessions are a totally new venture, and Ru loved it.
O: Otto was a sad soul for the first half of the week thanks to a stinking cold. He has finally learnt how to clap though, and loves dancing in his high chair.
