This is going to be a short post this week because we really haven’t done anything at all! Well, I went to London on Thursday to see Hamilton which was brilliant, but I started getting a headache on the train on the way home, which turned into some sort of sinusitis and I still feel rubbish now.
The boys have both still got colds as well so we hibernated this weekend. In fact we didn’t even get out of our pyjamas on Saturday! Of course, not doing anything doesn’t make for very exciting photos so I actually grabbed these ones this morning.
Toby has to wear a shirt and tie for school (well from October half term until Easter he does anyway). When he started in Reception last year he had literally never worn a shirt before so the buttons were a daily struggle. He managed them by himself after a couple of months but was still never able to to his top button – until last week! Now we just need to teach him how to tie a tie instead of using the clip on one he has now…
This picture of Gabe was taken just before I dropped him off at nursery. We used to have a ‘no tablets before school’ rule, but actually letting Gabe have his keeps him calm, and keeps his mind off the fact he is going to nursery. He has been getting loads better lately and hasn’t really cried at drop off for a couple of weeks now, but he does usually cry when he realises it’s a ‘school day’. So anyway, he doesn’t get his tablet until he’s dressed and ready for school but then I let him play with it before we leave and in the car. He’s always good about turning it off when we get there so for now, we do what makes life easiest!
Hopefully we’ll all start feeling a bit better this week and I can share something a bit more interesting next week!
