Georgie's 1st Potty Pee!

I just HAD to share that huge grin!

Georgie has been showing an interest in his potty for ages. We had no plans to start him potty training just yet because he's only 2 1/4, but if he's keen we're not about to stop him either.

He has been fighting nappies for ages, much preferring the "pull up pants" that Tom wears for bed. Sometimes we oblige him, sometimes we don't. Mainly because they are much more expensive than his nappies... But if he really wants to use them and try to use his potty more I guess we should go with the flow!

This evening Hubby was changing Georgie's nappy and George was fighting him as usual. He got up and wondered off asking for the potty. We've had it out for a while because he likes to play at using it, but we've not put any pressure on him. So I showed him where it was and off he toddled. He sat down, as he often does, and we thought nothing of it.

Only this time when he got up, he DIDN'T wave it around like he normally does. Just stood there, pointing, and saying "Look Mummy!" and sure enough.... there was a wee! So we made a fuss of him, gave him a chocolate coin, and he grinned from ear to ear!

We're still not putting any pressure on, and he's still in nappies for a while -  nursery tomorrow and on Thu Hubby will be home alone all day with ALL THREE BOYS thanks to the Teacher's Strike - but I'm thinking on Friday I might let him wonder about without any nappy or pants on and see how he gets on. Take it nice and slow. It's over a year before we really need him to be out of nappies and pull ups for Big Nursery, and with a new baby imminent I am aware that now it not the best time to start a major routine change. But it would be foolish to stop him from trying if he really wants to!

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'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…

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
