Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project “A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year!” Project 365 – Week 3 – Days 12 – 18
Day 12 – Sunday
We had a chilled out morning at home. I thought that Monkey was on a construction site but apparently this was a camp fire! In the afternoon we went to Daddy P’s sister’s house for Christmas Dinner with all the family, as they’ve just returned from a Christmas and New Year cruise. 5 children aged 2-8 – not a chilled out afternoon! But the kids had lots of fun, and extra Christmas stockings, so they were all happy.
Day 13 – Monday
We bought Monkey a Micro Scooter for his birthday, he has taken to it so much better than his My 1st Scooter, he just loves it. All of a sudden he has gained his confidence, has started to be independent, happy to not be holding my hand constantly. I am totally loving watching him scoot to school and back – its magical to watch the enjoyment on his face. Special.
Day 14 – Tuesday
Had a lovely morning catching up with an old friend while Monkey was at Nursery School, we had a quiet afternoon and then I spent the evening at a committee meeting for his old pre-school. Late night, but still a bit of reading time with my latest book. About a quarter of the way through, but enjoying it so far.
Day 15 – Wednesday
We’d been sent a weekend activity box to review, playing with coloured sand is a new activity for us to do at home. Once Monkey had completed the review task element, we tried some messy fun time. I got some paper and he used the glue and added the sands. It wasnt long before he’d tipped them all into one pot, but he had a great time. Really concentrated.
Day 16 – Thursday
I don’t know about you, but I spend most of my time down on the floor, helping to assembly train tracks, construction sites and so on. Thursday saw a hole appear in yet another pair of jeans, my jeans!!. Gutted, as these are my favourite jeans. I struggle to find jeans to fit me properly, small waist, big bum and fat thighs, too tall for regular, not quite tall enough for long.
Day 17 – Friday
Day 18 – Saturday Monkey has been watching the Discovery Channel with Daddy P and recently saw a programme with Chris Barrie, talking about old tanks. We don’t have any toy tanks, so when we visited Auntie Sheba today, he was quick to look out all the old tanks in the toy box. They had to come home for a visit! Monkey then sat there explaining the finer details of how the gun should be operated. He was talking real tanks, rather than toy tanks. If that boy isn’t an engineer when he grows up, I will be amazed!
