It’s been a fairly quiet week here, just the usual school and nursery and running errands. We’ve only got one week to go until half term and I think the boys are both ready for a break. I really need to think of some things to fill our time though or it won’t feel like much of a break for me!
Gabe doesn’t go to nursery on a Wednesday and after spending most of September not doing much of anything with our Wednesdays for the last few weeks we’ve been to a ‘Rhyme and Shine’ class at a local soft play. It’s only £1.50 and Gabe can play before and after the class, and we have a lovely half hour of singing in between.
Although he could probably manage on his own, especially with no big kids there, Gabe still wants me to go into the play frame with him. He’s building up his confidence though – maybe in a few more weeks I’ll be able to sit and have a cup of tea while he goes off to play!
On Saturday the rain was absolutely hammering down so we went to my mum and dad’s for lunch (and some yummy chocolate cake that she’d made). Yesterday was all about chilling at home and watching the next Star Wars film. After trying for a while to convince him that he would enjoy them Toby finally agreed to give the Star Wars films a go a few weeks ago. He’s watched the original trilogy so it was time for The Phantom Menace. We still have to explain what’s going on a lot of the time but he seemed to enjoy it anyway.
