Jack masters the Cargo Net!


Jack masters the Cargo Net!
Originally uploaded by chiggster
Two trips to the park in two days! Jack must think all his birthdays and christmases have come at once! But since Daddy needs the space and the quiet to get on with the DIY, and as the weather is good, it seems foolish NOT to go to the park!

Today Jack figured out the cargo net on the toddlers climbing frame. He'd watched another older girl be tought how to climb up by her dad - and she wasn't having any of it despite him giving her very good instructions. As soon as they moved off he wanted a go!

I gave him a helping hand the first couple of times he went up, showing not to over reach his legs, giving him a push on the bum to get an extra bit of lift... but it was only a short period of time before he had it sorted!

So now it's up the net, across the bridge and down the slide instead of just up the steps. If only I could convince him to WALK over the bridge instead of crawl....

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
