One afternoon last week, the two youngest and I caught the train into Leeds to pop into Waterstones. I knew Ru would love it, and that it would make for a fun, easy outing. We only went into one shop, and Ru enjoyed choosing a book for each member of our family. It only took a couple of hours, and we had a really great time together. Days like this are like going back in time – back to when Win hadn’t started school, and Ru was a baby. It is so nice, and I love doing it all over again.
R: We usually have a little dance in the kitchen whilst I’m cooking dinner, and Ru will only dance in his football kit, or his Spiderman suit. I find it hilarious that he goes upstairs to change and ‘ready to dance’.
O: I stopped breastfeeding O last Monday for a few reasons (biting was the clincher), and (weirdly?) I’m not one to get sad or emotional about it. I’m more in the ‘Hooray, my body is my own again’ camp, and I’m actually really happy about it! Like really happy. We were braced for a rough week, but he has slept brilliantly, and we can’t believe it. May it continue.
