Being a Baaaaad Mummy!

It's Saturday! I should be taking the kids out on some amazing adventure somewhere exciting!

But I'm not! 

We're staying in today. And while I tap away on here, my youngest is in bed napping and the other two are playing computer games. Tom isn't even wearing any undies... he decided that potty training without them is easier. I didn't feel like arguing over the matter today.

Shocking! Go ahead, call social services!

Thing is, it's a horrible, cold, wet Saturday and totally NOT suitable for an outside adventure when you have a 13m baby. And I have about £2 until Monday since I have gone way over budget this month on birthday presents (mainly for Tom next month) and treats for my boys (although they LOVE their Skylanders PJs and their new books) so an indoor play area is out too.

So this is the plan for today..... they get a bit of FreePlay in the house while I catch up on my blog reading and posting - they can do anything they want so long as they don't hurt anyone or break anything or scream so loud my ears bleed! Then, when I'm done, I'll join in their computer game for a bit. They love that! We'll have a picnic in the livingroom with a movie on Netflix for lunch, and I have a stash of Moshi Monsters baking stuff I have been saving for a rainy day such as today. Not 'proper baking' but they have a low attention span when it comes to mixing so stuff out of a box is ideal for now. That should take care of a nice chunk of the afternoon! After that... Well I'm not sure yet. I'll ask what they fancy doing, but I dread doing that on a day like today because they always want something I simply can't give them.

I doubt they'll want to help me sort out the 3 meter high laundry mountain I have to sort out :o/

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 on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
