Feeling so lucky

I really do think I must be one of the luckiest mums on the planet! My kids and husband are great!

I know Tom isn't even a week old yet, but he is already turning out to be a good natured, quiet child. Very relaxed. He hardly ever cries, and when he does it's because I'm changing his nappy (which he hates) or because I haven't picked him up and fed him as quickly as he'd like. And that doesn't happen often. He is completely unphased by any of Jack's games or toys, or his shouting and giggling and laughing.

And Jack himself... he's being great! He's having trouble sleeping on and off at the moment, but I'm putting that down to the weather. He's like his dad and doesn't cope well with heat and humidity. He's being very good with Tom. This morning I had Tom in his bouncer while he was awake, and Jack came at sat by him, chattered to him, and rocked his bouncer very gently. He's perfectly happy to play by himself, or come and sit beside me with a book, when I'm feeding Tom and isn't getting jealous at all!

At the moment I am getting a few mins peace, Jack's having an early nap (becuase he had a late night and didn't sleep well) and Tom's just drifted off after a nice long feed. I'm thinking I might get started on the housework I haven't really touched since coming home from hospital, it's time I got into a workable routine again anyway.

It would be lovely to show Mark that I can "cope" :oD Bless him, he worries about me. He said today, as he was heading off to work (yes, he's been offered a few more days!), that if it all gets too much to call him and he'd see about coming home early. I think that him coming home to two happy children, a relatively tidy house, clean clothes and a meal in prep - AND a happy wife - will put his mind at rest. I've not been hit by the baby blues just yet, and if I get a good routine started now which includes time out of the house, I might be able to avoid it completely.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
