First up, I did more craft with the kids.
I had a nice day with Cayley while Elisha was at kindy last week on Thursday.Â We didn’t do a lot, just hung out together.Â She helped me do housework and I played with her.
We came in from hanging out some washing and I noticed that she’d scraped her big toe quite nastily.Â She didn’t notice until about ten minutes later.
Oh my!Â The drama.
She needed her ‘bambaib’ again.
Note how far the injury and the bandaid are from each other.Â But if that bandaid fell off, well, she couldn’t walk.Â It must be a magic bandaid methinks.
There was also some gorgeous doll action…
We were having quite a normal conversation with Elisha at the lunch or dinner table over the weekend, when suddenly from nowhere…
Elisha: Have you ever seen a lion poo?
And the question was asked in such a manner that we couldn’t tell if that was a noun or a verb.
Brett looked at me, I looked at Brett and we both disintegrated into laughter.Â Of course having made us laugh Elisha kept up with the word he thought had brought about his comic success.Â Yes we (and especially Brett) kept laughing, but still at the first comment, not the new ones.
And Jos, well he just is cute.
He had his six week (Yes SIX week) check at the doctors’ today.Â He’s doing great.Â Putting on an average of almost half a kilo a week.Â And his baby acne and heat rash are starting to clear up a little (this is a slightly old photo).
He’s also starting to stretch out the time between feeds which is very nice, especially at night.Â I can’t say that I’m going to be sad when I miss out on watching infomercials in the middle of the night.
On a sad note, Elisha’s fish Coco died today.Â I know it’s a bit gross, but he’s still floating in his tank.Â I found him late this afternoon just before I served dinner up.Â We’ll have a bit of a funeral for him tomorrow.Â Elisha got Coco towards the end of 2007 as a reward for being fully toilet trained.Â I can’t believe that it was only that long ago.Â Feels like much longer than that.
Tomorrow is Elisha’s first FULL day at kindy.Â And he doesn’t want to go for the whole day.Â I am going to try and rev him up for it by lunchbox excitement.Â But I’m not going to force him if he doesn’t want to.
I am thankful…
* for the mild weather
* for the cybercrop at little scrapbook shop that went OFF this weekend, and the funds raised for the Victorian bushfire survivors
* Brett cleaned up the dishes and started the dishwasher for me tonight
* that Jos is doing so well
* that tomorrow is MY six week check and I’ll be able to drive again.Â Can’t wait.
