Day 48: Science day - we went to Techniquest in Cardiff Bay and had an amazing time. The boys were completely engrossed in all the experiments and this photo is of my 5 year old putting the organs back into the human body. He then went on to put the human skeleton together. A future doctor maybe?? We all had a great time and will be going back there very soon.
Day 49: Reading - I spent the whole day interviewing for new staff at work so was completely exhausted, It was so nice to go home and see my boys. I'm currently reading this Famous Five book to my oldest two and I love it. I adored anything by Enid Blyton when I was young and I love being able to pass this on to my own children.
Day 50: Colouring - Another day spent at work but I had parents evening for my 5 year old after work. It was so lovely to hear how great he is getting on in school and how much his fine motor skills have progressed since he started in Reception class. His teacher raved about his reading and learning skills and I was an even prouder mummy than normal. This photo is of a piece of work that he brought home.
Day 51: Sleepy boy - we had a bit of a bad day today. We went to a friends for lunch where my 2 year old proceeded to cry, and cry, and cry. I started to feel ill and ended up leaving before bursting into tears. By the end of the evening I couldn't talk or swallow and felt very sorry for myself. I spent the evening in bed before waking up and realising that I hadn't taken a photo that day. I managed to get this one of my now calm child sleeping sideways in his cot.
Day 52: Family matters - it was the day of my uncles funeral which, as you can imagine was very emotional and tiring. It was hard to see my mother so upset and I felt helpless as there was nothing I could do or say to make it better. I think that times like these do make you realise what's important in life, so this is me and one of my very important things. My children and my family are what matters more than anything.
Day 53: After effects - I spent the day with my parents, reading sympathy cards and chatting about life in general. My mother had a vase full of these beautiful lilies.
Day 54: Messy play - Ollie and I had a play date at a friends house to do messy play. It was amazing and he loved playing in the dirt and with the water. He wasn't so keen on all the food items and just pointed at them saying yuck. We'll have to work on that one.
