Is anyone else confused about what day it is after the bank holiday weekend? The weather seems to be confused the last few days too – after lovely weather for a few weeks and walking to school with no coats, the last few days have been cold, wet and windy. I even had to get my winter coat out again today!

The miserable weather meant we didn’t really do anything with our extra day off school and work. The boys were very happy to have a PJ day after a busy few days of activities again. They were back at Street Monkeys on Friday (where Toby’s behaviour was brilliant after we had words the week before), Saturday morning they went back for another Learn to Ride session, and Sunday they were back at swimming. Toby pretty much managed to ride on his own, he needs a bit more practice but he’s so close, and Gabe did really well but he needs a bit more practice too. We aren’t going to go back to any more sessions with the cycling club for now though because we’re moving to Street Monkeys on a Saturday morning, so we’ll just have to make sure they keep practising on their bikes at home.

Other than the weekend activities it was another normal week at school for the boys. They are both still loving school, I’m so glad they’re happy to back after missing so much of the last year. I took this quick snap of Toby outside our house when we got home the other day – I think he looks so grown up in his uniform carrying his backpack.

Gabe did have some big news yesterday – after a month of wobbling he lost his first tooth! His bottom middle two adult teeth have actually already grown in behind the baby teeth so we knew it wouldn’t be too long but he was still very excited for it to come out and to get his first visit from the tooth fairy.

The one next to the gap is wobbly too so hopefully that one will come out soon too and then the new teeth can move forward into the gap. At least he’s perfected biting at the side of his mouth for now so another wobbly tooth won’t make much difference!

I hope you managed a good bank holiday weekend even if you had awful weather like us. At least it being May means we don’t have to wait too long for the next one!

This is my ninth year taking part in this linky celebrating childhood, based on a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” .

  1. I hope the tooth fairy was kind Gabe? The weather has shown us every season just about this week! We were also confused most of the week by the bank holiday. We even put Teddy in pe kit instead of uniform by accident on Tuesday and then thankfully realised on the way out the door! x

  2. Yes I am a bit all over the place with the days too. The weather has been strange all week here. Glad they are still enjoying school and hope the tooth fairy was kind.

  3. Haha yes I was really confused about the day all of last week! Ah C is well into the wobbly tooth phase and I can’t stand it – it grosses me out so much! She’s had one hanging on by a thread for days and I hate it haha!
