On Friday, Kellan got sent home with the class teddy for the weekend. He was so excited, and couldn’t wait to tell me why he had been picked. As he ran upto me, Mickey in hand, school bag round his neck he said “Mummy!! I’ve got Mickey, because I’ve been working so hard!!” my heart was bursting with pride. Earlier in the week he had got the “Star of The Day” certificate for putting his coat on correctly, and doing the zip up. To some parents and kids, that isn’t a big deal, but to me, Dan and Kellan – it was. If that wasn’t enough, he has even been moved up to pink books and been given his set of blue words to learn. We are really proud parents this week.
To be honest, at first, I was dreading having Mickey over the weekend. 1. because we didn’t have much planned and 2. because I didn’t have a clue what to do with him, but we got there. We had our ‘Pizza in a box’ night on Friday and the kids watched Sing! then Mickey went up to bed for a sleepover while me and Dan had a date night watching my niece and nephew in their show, Oliver! at the local theatre. On Saturday we had a day indoors, until we decided to go for dinner. We took Mickey over to Pizza Express and he enjoyed another dinner, then headed to our friends for their little boys 2nd birthday party, and today we have played and watched films. I’ve had to take photos and put it in Mickey’s diary so the class can sit down tomorrow and discuss what Mickey had been up to, which was eat. All we did was eat.
I had a lovely wake up call this morning, Grayson woke about 7, so I put him in bed with us. It was too cold to get up yet, plus it was Sunday. He dozed back off once he was nice and cosy under the covers, fidgeting away. I was sort of in and out of sleep when all of a sudden he has sat up and threw his head back. He head butted me in the mouth and put my teeth through my lip, so I have been sporting a wonderful busted lip that my two year old gave me.
I wanted a nice kid free, quiet bath this evening, do you think that happened? No. It didn’t happen because Dan has been the garage for nearly two hours “printing” these Mickey Mouse photos, so I’ve had a bath with my kids sitting there watching, poking and asking questions about my body. It wasn’t quite the relaxing bath I was hoping for.
Kellan has got to the point of bedtime where it is always something – “Mummy I don’t feel well, I need to go in your bed” “Mummy, I am so hungry” “Mummy can you fill my drink up again please” “Mummy, I just need to go for a wee wee in the downstairs toilet” Now his had a cuddle, a snack, a fresh water and a wee wee, I am hoping he has settled down for the evening. It’s funny because Grayson copies everything his brother does, so he comes to the stairs and says the same things as Kellan in his own little language.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, we’ve had a very chilled and relaxed Sunday.
