Day 26: Haircuts - All three boys needed a haircut so we took them to the local barbers. This was the first time that O has sat calmly in the chair himself, but the look on his face made me laugh. I don't think he opened his eyes the whole time his hair was being cut.
Day 27: Teeth - E lost his tooth at school today. Well, to be precise, his cousin dropped it down the drain after school. It was a shame as it was the first tooth that has fallen out, but we decided that he should write a letter to the tooth fairy to explain what happened. It was very sweet and really well written.
Day 28: Drawing - Z has been drawing on one of those sketching boards and I was quite impressed with the detail in this picture of a train with lots of passengers. I thought I should capture it for posterity as soon after his little brother wiped it clean again.
Day 29: Swimming - O has been refusing to go swimming as he said he's scared so I decided that I need to start taking him every week to get him used to the water as I'd like him to start swimming lessons soon, like his brothers. It took me twenty minutes to actually get him out of the house as he didn't want to go, and then another ten minutes in the changing room trying to get him to undress. After a lot of
bribery gentle persuasion I eventually managed to get him into the pool, and once in, he loved it! By the end of the hour he was jumping in and swimming with the help of a noodle. It was amazing and I'm so glad I took him. We'll be going every week now.
Day 30: Toy box - O has acquired a new Thomas The Tank Engine toy box from my parents house, and is so enamoured with it that he sat in it for ages saying "choo-choo".
Day 31: Bubble wrap - this isn't the best photo as O is moving. As the weather is so rubbish at the moment we decided to lay out bubble wrap on the floor and pop it by jumping on it. We had great fun for ages with this.
Day 32: Classics - Another awful weather today so we had an indoor picnic lunch and watched Mary Poppins on Netflix. E loved it and I sang along to all the songs (he probably didn't love that bit).
