Georgie's 2nd Birthday!

We've never really done much for our kids 2nd birthdays. No party for example. Not because we're mean.... but because there seems little point. The 1st birthday is a big do, family coming over from all over and such. And by the time they are 3 they have a few little friends they can invite to something that they've met through nursery and play group etc. But at 2 years old there's not much going on socially - they are still the centre of their own little uiniverse. So we do something low key.

For Georgie's birthday - since it's in the Easter Holidays this year - I took the kids to the indoor play centre in town called The Zone. We met up with a friend of mine and her two lads - both a bit older than my boys - and just let the kids play while we had a catch up over some lunch.

George got the chance to go and play with the bigger kids for the first time instead of  being confined to the toddler area. It's not recommended that he goes in with the big kids at his age, but it's not banned either (case of  "you know the risks, don't take us to court if you kids gets knocked over by someone bigger") and it made him so happy to go with his big brothers. He could only go so far anyway, not being tall enough to make the climb to the very top so I was happy that he was safe from getting stuck or lost in the massive climbing frame.

He loved his presents this year. We were stuck on what to get for him - being the (current) youngest of 3 kids close in age - we already have pretty much everything a two year old could want! But I'd sat with him and the Amazon App and let him browse things and choose what he wanted, then I bought some of the more suitable stuff from his list. He was very happy with it though, and that's what counts.

We also ordered his take-away of choice for dinner, or at least as best as we could. He likes noodles and he like chicken and he likes dipping sauces. So we ordered Chinese food and I shared some sweet'n'sour chicken balls with him, and some special chow mein.

He was still singing "Happy Birthday" at bedtime.

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

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.
