Oh i could twist and turn in the mud of a good old wallow tonight. But I’ll spare you the agony; I think it would probably be gratuitous and maybe I’ll need to do it more another night.
So instead, let me tell you how I spent the day with the two girls who were here.
Josie wanted to do some things from a book I picked up at the library “365 Things to do with your 3-6 year old” (or something, can’t find it on Amazon, so this morning we made a list and she wrote the numbers down of the ones she wanted to do 🙂 (See what I did there?)
Digging that load of crafty stuff out made me realise the room and cupboard of doom was hopeless; we can’t do anything because all our craft stuff is shoved behind baby stuff that was jammed away quickly. It felt like the right moment to deal with it all of a sudden, so while she threaded, I dealt with the detritus of a dead baby. Car seat went out, baby clothes were moved to the same cupboard as the memory box etc and clothes put ready to prune out. I sorted craft stuff and after a while it all looked like this. I was really proud of myself; I only cried when I got to the little newborn car seat head nestler. I’ve forgotten. In my memory he’s big, but he must have been so much smaller than I remember. It’s very confusing; even though he was smaller at the end than the weight he was born at, his pictures show so many different Freddie’s that I struggle to have a clear picture. Was he ever so small though? Really?
It seems like a pre-school activity/craft but Maddy adored making them and currently two 12 year olds are trying to out do each other with the best pictures made from buttons upstairs 🙂
Home ed like the olden days; I miss having little ones around. I was so looking forward to doing all this stuff again for years.
