After I came back from BlogOn last weekend we’ve had a quiet week. Both boys are still so tired that it’s really not worth trying to do much with them so we’ve just enjoyed having Daddy at home and not done much of anything.
Toby did have one of his friends from school (who went to the same nursery too) round to play on Tuesday. He just lives a few minutes away from us so hopefully they’ll be able to do it again soon. I’m mostly just glad that Toby is making friends at school – it was one of the things I was a bit worried about because he very much likes doing his own thing, and doesn’t always like it when other kids have different ideas to him.
He still keeps telling me he doesn’t want to go to school, but we’ve not had any real tears this week and he seems to have got more used to the idea that he has to go to school every day. We’re half way to half term at least, and then he can have a bit of a break.
Gabe has been a bit on the grumpy and clingy side this week – he’s got a cold though (and so has Toby) and I noticed on Saturday that a tiny corner of his second bottom molar is poking through, so that probably explains it. He still isn’t napping, unless he’s in the car and to be honest I’m really enjoying getting more of my evenings back. It makes such a difference when they are both asleep before 7:30 instead of it taking until nearly 9 pm some nights just a few weeks ago.
He’s got a bit obsessed with the Kindle in the last week though, and I wrote yesterday about how much screen time is too much. I’m not too worried really, because I think he’s learning from most of the things he is using it for. We’re not quite at the point where he can use it independently for very long anyway, so he’s always with me when he’s playing it anyway. On a different note, I was so happy when I tried these Gray Label dungarees on him and they fit – they were always one of my favourites on Toby so I’m pleased I get to see them being worn again.
So that’s it for week 40 of Living Arrows – three quarters of the year done!
