So far today my side kick and I have set up the train set and made lots of awesome bridges.
We have crashed it down again and packed it up.
We have set up his car track set thingy that hooks onto to a table and sees the little cars hurtle down towards a plastic gorilla with cars in its hands.
More crashing.
We have eaten healthy snacks.
We have watched Marmaduke.
We have played hide and seek.
I've been told where to hide and pretended numerous times that I didn't know where he was.
I almost fell asleep when I didn't follow his orders and hid instead under the bean bags.
We have eaten homemade cookies.
He drank warm milk.
I drank coffee.
I did a little housework in between playing.
I have been sneaking back to the computer in between playing.
We checked the mail.
He told me he gets sad because there is never anything for him in the mailbox.
He is a funny, precious little creature.
He is my boy.

This week I'm grateful for.....
Watching my little ones with their friends brings me so much joy. My big girl's bestie is moving up to Queensland at the end of term. She is, so far coping well and is savouring the time they have left together. They are spending as much time together as they can while they can. I am finding lovely little letters written to her friend telling her not to go and that she will miss her so much. It breaks my heart.
You've got to love it when there is progress in the renovation department. Floorboards are layed, wall colours are being chosen. Lots of debate about the colours of walls in the kiddies rooms. They have all chosen colours I'm not too keen on so I've decided to paint their rooms white with a feature wall. I'm generally not into the feature wall but figure that it is much easier to paint over than a whole bedroom.
The husband and I had a date this week. It was just a coffee after school drop off but it was just the 2 of us. Something we rarely do but need to do more often. A walk along our beautiful beach ended our date before the reality of returning home to breakfast dishes caked in cornflakes and pyjamas flung from one end of the house to the other.
For more...
I apologise for the strange happenings on my blog, blogger is wreaking havoc. I can't seem to change font, highlight text and so many other things.
