Another day drags itself into being – I was all geared up to leave the house today as I had a physio appt – but I’ve had a call cancelling it, so so much for that. I’m really struggling with sleep deprivation, and dd seems to have energy in inverse proportion to me, which I find incredibly wearing. On the plus side, bought a set of old cuisenaire rods on ebay yesterday for a very small amount of money – getting them shipped surface from the states, so they should be a nice surprise shortly after we get back from camp.
I’m kind of planning that this month will be a time for planning and that we will start activites when we come back from camp – dd will only be 4 so I’m not planning anything overtly educational, just something to give this boundless energy an outlet, and also to start undoing the “I can’t” attitude which pervades everything she starts, which I can only assume is down to nursery.
Necessity is the mother of invention though, and when I couldn’t make her sandwich now because I was feeding ds, she promptly set to and made her own – maybe I should contrive to be busy a little more often?
