So another weekend has been and gone. They go so quickly. I never used to really like weekends, they always used to be a bit boring. Now that little man is here, there is no such word.
Saturday followed a similar pattern to any normal Saturday. We had swimming in the morning, which Daddy kindly offered to take him as I had a horrible cold, so I just sat on the side and watched. He is growing more and more confident and it is amazing to see.
We had our decorator over for an hour at lunch time so I could decide on some colours for our house. It is all being decorated at the end of February, so I really to do have to turn my attentions to patterns and colour schemes. The only room left to sort out is our bedroom. I think it is going to mean new bedding, so research definitely needs doing this week. By research I obviously mean shopping.
The boys then took their trip to Tesco to do the weekly food shop, and I took the opportunity to go to the gym.
I then understood why Daddy was being so helpful as he wanted to sit and watch the whole of the rugby. That left me to sort dinner, tidy the house and do bath time with little man.
Sunday was much more of a family day which started off nicely with pancakes. We all made the batter and then Daddy did the cooking. Little man had his plain with a bit of sugar – he took about 3 bites and then the rest went on the floor. Mine had chocolate chips and Daddy had currants.
After a lunchtime nap, toddler not me, we then took a trip out to Costa for a coffee. As I have already spoken about previously, it is really important to put toddlers in social situations so they can get used to being out and about sitting nicely in public.
So we all had hot chocolates, and little man had his first babyccino. Hubby and I had a mini debate in the queue about if it was going to be a waste of time (and money), but I am glad I won. He absolutely loved it.
He looked so proud that he was a big boy and we sat there for about half an hour enjoying our hot drinks and cakes together, with no drama. It was such a lovely end to the weekend.
So this week my plan is to start off my lent campaign with healthy food for my afternoon snack at work. I also need to sort out my bedroom decor so I can choose my paint colours.
I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. What are your plans this week?
