A Working Mum
Since our son was born eighteen months ago there have been so many wonderful mum moments but my best one was whilst we were away on our honeymoon.
Our little lad was eleven months when my OH and I married and at that point he'd been crawling round for a while. The accommodation that we were staying in on our honeymoon had the living room and kitchen on a semi open plan basis, which was great for keeping an eye on our lad whilst doing things in the kitchen.
Our accommodation had plenty of coffee tables in the living room as well as the communal areas in the house and our lad had plenty of fun crawling round, and by the end of our stay, through the tables.
It was the Halloween party at the nursery today ...
We had our first ever parents' night tonight at our son's nursery. I didn't even realise that they had such a thing at the nursery. When we collect our son from the nursery the girls will talk us through his activities for that day, so I curious when we received the note about the parent's evening.
We were quite nervous about this evening's proceedings, no one wants to hear anything negative about their child, but more so about our son's habit of climbing and wrestling!
We're not quite sure how this habit came about but if you're on the floor he'll clamber over you and throw himself on to you! He doesn't realise that this can actually be quite sore at times!
When we arrived tonight we were slightly early, I hate being late for things, and we were shown in to the 'tweenie room' and to our tiny chairs. The nursery staff went through the children's learning through play activities, and also the recording sheets that they have to complete for each child on their acquired skills.
They also explained that when the children turn two years old they're move up in to the next room, which is when the nursery focuses on the curriculum for excellence that they have to follow for their activities.
When you become a parent you look forward to seeing your children grow and develop in to the their own person, with their own unique personality.
Along the way you also look forward to celebrating their ‘firsts’, their first teeth, their steps, first birthday, first words …
My OH is a keen follower of football and when Scotland were playing yesterday I thought I take our little fella along to join Daddy in the pub to watch the football.
I thought that we wouldn’t be there for too long as I thought he’d get bored, but he loved it! He was glued to the screen for the whole of the first half!
During the second half he was quite happy playing with his rabbit and gaining admiring looks from the rest of the other football fans.
At the ripe old age of 15 months we finally bought our son his first pair of shoes, well to be exact my mum bought his first pair of shoes.
My mum had been mentioning for a while that she thought he needed shoes.
I know our son’s been walking for a few weeks now but he can’t as yet walk unaided, so I thought we were fine with his “crawler shoes”
We trotted off to Clarks this afternoon to get our son’s feet measured, 4.5 F, and I found out that his “crawler shoes” were only supposed to be worn indoors … oops!
