Considering i fell asleep at 12.30am, woke up at 3am and that was all the sleep i got, we had a good Thursday. The music lessons went well again, Fran and Amelie played together again, we fed everyone 2 decent meals with F, M and A sharing making the evening stew and a reasonable amount of work got done too.
Mainly though, the thud of dinosaur feet were heard through the house as they all watched back-to-back Walking With Dinosaurs. Strangely, for a child who was otherwise petrified of all scary, or even slightly scary, things on TV, this was Fran’s favourite programme for most the the time from when she was 3-5 and she watched it endlessly. That was on an old video, which we lost the power to play about 3 years ago but she could still remember bits of it this week from the cheap DVD i picked up. The others have really enjoyed it too, though Maddy is struggling to understand that much of what is said, and all the action, is effectively fiction and guesswork and Amelie and Josie are so taken in by the animation and the “the animators use x technique to bring the Sauropods to life…” type of talk that they won’t believe that they don’t mean literally ‘brought to life’. So now they are trying to convince me that there is a Jurassic Park style place somewhere – and i’m wondering if Jurassic Park would be too scary to show them!
Managed to get the big 2 to Brownies, got invited to stay at Pack Holiday myself but declined so as to give them (F and M) space from me but now turns out they are slightly disappointed i’m not coming!
