OK, so I should give up on pretending that I’m going to update this frequently…and there is no way that I’m going to remember what we’ve done for the last two weeks.
Highlights and lowlights then: dd had her first trip to the cinema, which she thoroughly enjoyed right up til she went to bed when the nightmares began 🙁 Three nights later she felt up to sleeping in her own bed. Guess we won’t be trying that again in a hurry. However we also went to the theatre to a puppet story telling which was great, and we’ve read and reread those stories over the last couple of days which has been lovely.
Otherwise, let’s see, there was the car accident, where thankfully dd was not with me in the car – gives me cold sweats to think about how she would have reacted. Then the next day she brought home a homework book, which is due to go back to nursery tomorrow, and will return untouched. Homework?? Without a discussion or a note or so much as a by your leave (not that any of those would have contributed to any homework being done…)
We’ve also played dominoes most evenings, and dd has started learning clock patience (although to be frank, she doesn’t have quite enough patience to succeed with it yet), today we’ve had two, count them, two hama bead sessions, as well as her emergent writing of a story which she then read to us both.
I’ve finally bought my glue gun, now all I need is a few extra hours in the day to do all the crafts I want to do. Dp and I have discussed home edding more and more, and we will be building towards a pattern of him taking her our one day a week, and we are going to look seriously at drama classes for her from age four. Ds is still smily and happy most of the time and it does help so much to just sit and cuddle him some times.
And that’s as much as I have time and energy for tonight.
