Man, i could get used to this “two parents at home ” malarky. I’ve hardly seen them. (Which is only pleasant for a change, but still!) I got a lie in, followed by time to do the quantity of parcels i’ve accumulated in the week since last posting date, played on ebay a bit, sold a load of beads, then Max took them out to Maddy’s nursery for a drop in day. Josie is doing Day 3 of the eating/wailing/sleeping cycle, so i’ve hardly seen her either!
I did play Connect4 with Fran for a while, that girl is really NOT a forward thinking strategist!!! :~D I think some more engineering and Cluedo went on and i’ve just got them Junior Monopoly with a TRU voucher so we can try that tomorrow.
Edit to add: Josie just took her first EBM from a bottle, something Amelie would never do. So that is good. I’ve no desire to give her formula but it would be nice to express and have bottles available. I think, for me, that will keep me feeding her longer. Oh yes, couple of milestones… i did finally bath her, when she hit 6 weeks (gulp!) and she is now is 3-6 month babygrows. She is HUGE! Still got grey eyes, very spotty this week and lots of blonde hair growing through, including blonde eyelashes and my single pigmentless eyelash in the middle of one side.
Max and i have been debating Maddy and Amelie a bit; i think his “jury” is still just slightly out on whether Maddy ought to go to school, not because he thinks it would be good for her so much as that she loves the environment and is going to miss it. But i’m convinced that it would destroy her, not to mention wreck life for the rest of us. I think Amelie might possibly go to playgroup when she reaches “nursery” age (so nearly a year yet) but i wouldn’t do what Maddy has had again. If she does go it will be for something more flexible.
Hmmm.. what shall we read for bedtime tonight? It ended up being more Edward Lear (The Jumblies again and The Owl and the Pussy Cat and The Inchcape Rock and the start of The Enchanted Wood.) Fran wants to learn to recite The Jumblies.
