Poo!

I should have known. I should have put a nappy on him today. But you want to encourage your kids to be grown up and not upset them by treating the like babies when it's not necessary. But you should also always follow your gut with your kids.

This morning Tom looked like he hadn't slept a wink all night, although he must have done because of all our kids it's number two son who wakes up in the night frequently, and cries to you can't not know he's awake. It's nursery day today and we dressed him like normal, stuck spare undies and jeans in his bag because he isn't quite 100% toilet trained yet, and took him down as normal. I got no phone calls from them or anything, but when I wen to pick him up this afternoon he wasn't in either pair of jeans I sent. In fact when I got there he was asleep! He'd been asleep for over 2 hours!

The lady who looks after him (his key worker) handed over my groggy little boy and said that he had in fact had two sets of wet pants. I couldn't help but notice a certain pong about him too.... I peaked inside his jeans and sure enough there was a little brown present in there too. Oh joy! Good job we only live 5mins from home. I got him back, sent Jack to get changed out of his uniform and put Georgie down for a nap, thinking that once the other two were out of the way I could focus on cleaning Tom up. I was out of the room for two minutes and I heard Jack calling "Tom has poo on his socks!!!!" He'd wet himself while I was upstairs and that had washed poo all down his leg!

I took him up to the bathroom, stood him in the tub fully dressed, stripped him off, used the shower head to rinse his undies off into the loo, bundled the whole lot up, and showered him off. We'd had a letter about nits too so after washing him down I checked his hair with conditioner and the nit comb. Thankfully free of bugs!

He hates the shower. He cried the whole time. I got him dry and into his pyjamas and brought him back down stairs. He didnt want a nappy on, and I am trusting him to get to his potty (right next to him) if he needs it. But he looks soooo poorly! And so so tired. He says he has a tummy ache too. I just don't know what to do with him. It's not a runny bum, but I'm sure he's poorly. I know he's still not quite there with toilet training but this last few days he's been much worse with wet pants every day for about 4 days in a row. Part of me wants to put him back in a nappy but he doesn't want it and I'm worried it'll set him back even further. He starts big nursery in September and he's supposed to be clean and dry for that. I don't know what to do for the best. Will carrying on as we are with pants and accidents upset him and put him off trying? Will putting him in nappies set him back? I guess we'll have to just go with the flow but its so hard to know what to do!

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
