Painting the Moon

We're all still really liking this project! All this week Jack has been showing me more pictures he wanted printing off for his little scrap book, and sticking them in ever so carefully!

I talked with Jack and jogged his memory of what his Nana told him about watching the moon landing. As he remembered parts he wrote it down and I cut his writing out for him to stick into his scrap book, sort of in the right order. Then he went mad with sparkly planets and shiny stars, it looks so cute!

I love reading his writing! At school he is encouraged to write phonically for now so seeing how he spells things is really interesting. He writes in his accent!

 But even with the scrap book making through the week the only thing on Jack's mind is painting his planets!

Unbeknown to the kids, most evenings we've been building up the layers of papier mache on the planets. They were a bit flimsy and they had run out of interest in layers of paper and glue so we felt we had to do something so they didn't collapse under the weight of the painting. The bigger planets still need a little work, but the little water bomb moons were ready to paint!

Jack wants his moon to be red and pink with moon dust. Tom painted his green with pink dots. They could do with a layer of varnish (or glue) to stop the glitter from dropping off, but they look fab! Jack's very proud!

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
