The boys love noodles. A lot! They’re obviously not the easiest of foods for children to eat, but it seems to be a favourite in our house. Having a long summer holiday, plus work to juggle means that I’m always trying to cram in some fun things on my days off and, as Monday was fairly rainy and dull, we decided a nice trip to the very nice and warm Trafford centre would be perfect. We were meant to go look for more bees in the city centre but I didn’t fancy chasing a mad toddler around in the wet weather, so a good walk and noodles it was!
Both boys always want a good go at chopsticks, and can never quite manage it, but always give it a good go. I’m still a bit wary about taking both boys out on my own as, well, anything could happen. Z is fine and will go with the flow but the toddler has reached the stage of no fear and darting off in a random direction. He’s also becoming averse to sitting in his buggy, which triples the effort and nerves it takes to take him out for the day. Lucky for me, he was on his best behaviour and extremely taken with a crayon filled toy bin he got given. Both behaved like impeccable little angels and there was only one meltdown when I refused to buy him a much needed toy pig which he had fallen in love with for all of two seconds. Thankfully, he forgot about it about a minute later. I think I may brave a solo bee trip this week now that I have a week off work (woohoo!)
