Happy birthday lovely ladies!! 🎂🎉🍹🍾
I am up for the third time tonight it's only midnight. Sigh. No sleep again for me tonight.
I am sitting outside on our front balcony with DS and DD. We say 'bye bye daddy' from the front balcony. I am also planning a trip to the library today (hopefully) for DS. Entertaining toddlers is hard - or is that just me?
Yes toddlers are hard to entertain. My Ds1 isn't a toddler anymore but I do get it. He was never one to play happily on his own, needs constant attention and entertaining. I take him to swim lessons, kiddie kicks soccer and kindy sports (ready steady go, it's a national program worth looking up!). It's commitment to get there each week but wears him out and I can chill with a coffee/breastfeed while I watch him.
My days where I have no activities planned are the worst! Trying to hook up with a friend who also has a 4 yr old son and baby.
'I want something else to eat mummy' x10 in the space of a minue. Give him his options of food. And he wants noodle snacks! No noodle snacks! Then he starts over.
So looking forward to walking. I put him in the pram and he talks but I can't hear him and only reply 'yes DS' etc and he is happy and I have some peace.
Sitting at my dining table with a coffee enjoying the golden silence. DH is on annual leave and sleeping in (it's his birthday today so I think I'll let him 😉) and DD has been unwell so she's still in bed, too. We're all meant to be going out to the Pancake Parlour for DH's bday breakfast but I guess sleeping is just as good!
Waiting for DS to be bored of the library. We did storytime and he is now playing with the toys. I am considering napping on the couch near the kids area...
