I’m writing this pretty late in the day seeing as you turned 2 years and 1 month about 2 weeks ago now but it’s not my fault…its SNOWED!!! Yes!! We’ve had 2 inches of snow and the whole of the UK has come to a standstill. OK, that’s a slight exaggeration as the South has had a lot more than that but we’ve been busy having fun in it and moaning about being snowed in and then how much we hate it and want it to go away.
It was your birthday last month and we had 2 quite big parties. There was plenty of games and food and a lot of laughing and having a good time. I have to admit, for all my resisting and not actually initially wanting big parties I’m really glad we did it. Your face was a complete picture when we cut the cake and you sang Happy Birthday to yourself for the rest of the day. Actually, you sing it all the time now too and then pretend to blow out an imaginary candle. Very cute!
I think I’ve finally decided what to do about the nursery situation. After speaking to a lovely lady I’ve found out you can actually enrol into 2 places which is what some people do when they spend a lot of time in two different locations. That’ll work out perfectly if we can do that and it means I won’t be panicking about picking you up because there’ll always be someone around. Hurrah!! Well….I still need to actually do it yet so here’s hoping!
Its been a really interesting month watching you learn new things. You are now talking in sentences. I’m pretty sure every month I think you are finally “talking properly!” and then every month you surprise me by talking a bit more fluently and clearly. You’ve turned into a Little Storyteller and its really amusing listening to you tell me a bedtime story. All made up of course! Its lovely you can express yourself properly now and takes away at least 30 seconds of a tantrum. Maybe…one day…very very soon you may not tantrum at all. That’s possible. Right??
Anyhoo, these are some of the things you’ve been saying this month…
(At a red traffic light)
You: Mummy! Let’s Goooooooooooooooooo!!!!
Me: We can’t go till in turns Green
You: NOOOO!!! Let’s Goooooooooooooooo!!!
“Hello Snowman, how are you?”
“Snow is cold. Go inside” (Then you watched me finish off your snowman from the warmth of the conservatory!)
(On being told off for attempting to run straight into the TV)
Me: That could hurt, do you understand?
You: No understand!
(On not liking Lunch)
You: I don’t want it, I don’t like it
Me: What do you want to eat then?
You: I don’t know? Oh…Sweet?
Me: No sweeties
I’m hoping for more of these as the months go by 🙂
