Wow. I’m here, posting for my Simple Saturday collection. I never have time for it any more! Although I also want it to be part of “Things I don’t want to forget”. Look at this photo.
It’s perfect. Our boys are perfect. They are just lovely.Their legs are entwined, wriggled up to watch tv together. Who would have thought that just moments before, E was telling W that he was a baby for wanting to watch Sinbad again. That it was far cooler to watch Scooby Doo than baby Sinbad. It’s funny how E is prepared to watch Sinbad, but only because he has now choice, don’t you know?
Today has been a long day, but a lovely one. I had a lie in, then daddy went back to bed and had a shower without interruption from Little People who want to discuss anatomy with him, or rather his anatomy, which is a current favourite topic. I’m just grateful to be off the hook for a while. By that point, it was lunch time which W wolfed down – it was pizza, so our chances were always good on that one. Then swimming, where we met a new baby and his mummy and daddy who’ve just joined the pool. E’s swimming is really coming on – his front crawl arms are really good. He just turns from his front to his back every time he takes his breath. And he swims diagonally. When he hits the opposite side of the pool he stops to look around, get his bearings and start again. He does four lengths for everyone one of ours. And he’s only five!
Then it was out and off to Shelford, to the shop where you get an ice cream that has Gummy Bears in the stick. Life doesn’t get much better than that. But of course, they were sold out, so we went to the tesco express – we normally boycott it, to support local shops instead, but ice cream needs must. And finally, after a sit on the bench to try and catch the dribble from the lollies, we had a quick go on the playground.
Then home and tea time. Really, does life get much better than this? I don’t think it does. I’m so quick to complain about not having time with my boys – all three of them, but today has been lovely. I’ve had some time to myself, so has Lovely Bloke and the boys have had time with us both, hanging out. I’m grateful for my wash x
PS. They realised that I was taking their photo using photo booth on my mac and proceeded to start messing about. They aren’t *quite* so angelic after all eh?
