Our Project 365 has continued this week, with a return to school for my son and the start of an extra nine hours per week at Nursery for my daughter. On Day 4 (Sunday 4th January), we spent the day playing with Christmas toys and watching some of the DVDs they’d been given as gifts. The children made themselves very comfortable and we had a lovely, relaxing day.
On Day 5, H had her first full day at Nursery. After initially telling me that she wasn’t going and that she was spending the day with me (it took her all of five minutes protesting), she went very happily to Nursery. She had to take her Princess Annual with her to show the other children though. H had a fantastic day. The Nursery staff were very pleased at how well she had taken to her full day.
On Day 6, I found the children laid in my bed, fully clothed, pretending to be asleep. S said that he couldn’t go to School because he was asleep. I’d have fallen for it but there was too much giggling going on for that to have been true 😉 Nice try though.
Even though they were ‘asleep,’ they both still managed to be ready thirty minutes early for leaving the house. I suspect they were both secretly excited about spending the day with their friends.
On Day 7, H got herself a piece of paper and her glitter glue pens and proceeded to make her own picture. She even tidied away after herself. This is one of the first times she has done this. She often needs a bit of encouragement to do things like this so I was pleased when she made her picture, unprompted and independently.
On Day 8, I think the tiredness must have got to them. I could hear them both really giggling in the kitchen so I went to investigate. They were taking it in turns to pull each other’s socks off! What a strange game but a funny one 🙂
On Day 9, after rescuing the poor bread from drowning in the soup, H decided it was time to pull funny faces. She started doing this the other night during Facetime with my Mum and Dad. As she made us all giggle so much, she has now started doing it more and more to keep us entertained.
On Day 10, the children were at their Dad’s so I spent some time with my Mum, Dad and Granddad. When the children got home, my Mum and Dad stayed a while. H loved showing her Grandma her new Hudl and both children enjoyed chatting to them.
