Feel like i spent all yesterday trying to juggle the needs of everyone in a rather high maintenance fashion for a sunday 🙄 However, it was largely successful i think, everyone seemed to end the day happy anyway, apart from Amelie who got terribly overtired and itchy last thing.
Amelie and i spent the morning going through flickr again (we’d done it rather a lot over the weekend in general) and we picked out lots of photos from the first 3 years of her life, printed them on the lovely photo printer that i don’t get to make nearly enough use of and she put them into an album, slightly haphazardly it has to be said, but she had a lot of fun. Was nice to bond over it. Obviously i ended up crying myself to sleep both nights from baby/toddler photo overload, but i’m not damaged by that too much i don’t think 🙄 I wonder if that will actually ever go away? I was bad enough before April. Succeeded in making myself ridiculously broody again anyway, so have been chanting mantras about all night feeds, blobby fat and never being able to find two minutes to myself.
Maddy has been making lots more HappyMais models, to the point where i am planning on giving her a section on BM all of her own! Latest are some disco and halloween models/pictures, which i really liked. Must photograph them. She has a collage challenge for Rainbows to do this week, which i must apply myself to facilitating. She also read me a whole Pooh Bear book (from that nature trails series) which was slightly surprising! Then we set her up a blog of her own, which still needs tweaking, so i must encourage her to do something for that. Though i could set them up free flickr accounts maybe, so they could have some control over that too and keep a record of their work.
Fran didn’t seem to need me much, not quite sure what she was actually doing apart from blogging and emailing me little messages, but she had fun all day i think – and Josie just ramaged about, overtired and cross and making everyones life difficult. (Reason 832 not to have anymore children).
I finished off the day ambling through some parcel packing, so i just need to stamp them now and then all i have to do today is engage with the children 🙂 and negotiate the dentist 🙁 Oh – and answer my emails, which are all backed up again 😯
