Stacy is the one bugging me to post. I don’t know why I have stopped blogging so much. I have been getting loads of orders in for my crochet business and that does take up a lot of my time, but I find time for Facebook so I should find time to blog too!
So our day started with this:
Me: Charlie will go you and put some socks on please?
Charlie: No, I can’t
Me: Why not?
Charlie: I’m a bee
Me: Oh. Mr Bee, can you go and put some socks on please?
Amendment to parenting manual… if your child refuses to do something, first check they aren’t some kind of flying insect.
With his speech getting so much better he has me laughing several times a day. He loves it when he makes me laugh, but often trying to make me laugh doesn’t work! On that note, he has a speech evaluation last week and she has discharged him saying that he is now within normal limits. Yay! He is very into drawing and writing at the moment and we do some daily. He is still pretty useless at forming letters but he tried hard to improve. His desire to achieve writing is wonderful actually. I think when Charlie wants to do something, he will try until he can. It’s a good quality to have.
With him spending more time at pre-school Rosa and I have lots of time with just us. She does nap for large chunks of it but yesterday was a lovely cold sunny day and we went for a walk and fed the ducks.
Stacy and I are really enjoying doing Xmas shopping this year. We have hunted down and bought lots of bargains. They are each going to have a good sized pile of presents, but the cost is quite low due to our efforts! I find buying for Charlie so much easier than Rosa as he is very clear on what he likes and wants. You know you have a child of modern times when after watching an advert on the TV he requests it to be added to his ‘wish list’. He is still very much into cars, trains, diggers, tractors that kind of thing. At my Mum and Dads house the other day they were harvesting the sugar beat from the field at the end of their garden. He was in ‘tractor heaven’
Rosa just loves to sing. She was singing to the tune of happy birthday the other day:
‘Banana na na, banana na na, banana na na na naaaaaaaa, banana na na!’
I made my donation to the British legion from the sale of my poppies and my poppy pattern, with giftaid it came to £93.75 and I was very proud of that 😀
I am getting really into papercutting. Pretty much everyone is getting one for Christmas from me.
We are still waiting to hear from the clinic if they will help Stacy get pregnant. We are feeling frustrated by how long it is taking. Stacy thinks about it a lot, asking me questions like ‘do you think a 3 year age gap is too big?’ We need to get her pregnant and she needs to be pregnant soon. *stamps foot*
