I am linking up with Mummy Daddy & Me Makes Three my week that was linky again this week. Why not head down there yourself and join in.
This week was another lovely week with my gorgeous little family...
On Monday it was a relaxing day at home playing with the children and getting a bit of housework done.
Tuesday, Eloise goes to pre-school in the morning and then in the afternoon my friend came round to see us with two of her beautiful girls. She has three children but, one of them is now in primary school, so we don't get to see her much anymore. She is also pregnant with her fourth (She is braver than me!) which is due next month! I am so excited, and secretly hoping that she has boy this time as Bryce would love a little friend. :)
Wednesday is now a busy day for us, as Eloise goes to pre-school in the morning again, and I have found another toddler group which is on every Wednesday morning between 9:30-11:30, as I didn't like the one which I went to last week.
This toddler group is so much better! Loads of really friendly Mummy's & Daddy's, and lots of children around Bryce's age. I can't wait to go next week to find out if two of the ladies there have had there babies yet, as they were both due this week!
Two of the ladies live just around the corner from me, so it's nice to make friends with people so close by.
At 3:30 it is then time for Eloise's ballet class. She looks so gorgeous in her ballet dress and was good as gold, strutting around the hall. It's so nice to find something which she adores so much!
Also on Wednesday we had to take my little boy to hospital. He had been referred to see a pediatrician due to his foot turning out to the side when he walks. When being assessed, he noticed that he actually has one leg slightly longer then the other. To find out what is going on, Bryce had to have his lower body x-rayed. I really hope that everything is going to be okay and that, it can be corrected somehow with no surgery. Poor little thing. :(
On Thursday I was able to stay and help out at Eloise's other pre-school. I have wanted to sit in for a while now as I had a feeling that this school was not up to scratch! The lady there who is Eloise's key worker told me that she has been working there for 19 years now and that she is bored and can't be bothered anymore! (Luckily she is due to retire in June)
When Eloise was there, she appeared completely spaced out and completely out of character. She didn't answer when the workers there spoke to her and when she chose what she wanted to do, she just sat at a table and painted without even thinking what she was doing. It was really heartbreaking to see to be honest, as she does so well at home, and achieves so much.
I was even told by her key worker that according to ofsted, they are supposed to go and play outside all year round but, they have decided that it's too messy for them to do this in the winter, so they stay indoors!
There is actually a whole list of things which I am not happy about, so I decided not to take her in on Friday and my Husband and I have arranged a meeting with the manager on Tuesday. Will be interesting to see what she has to say!
So Friday was keep my Daughter at home day! We all had so much fun playing with puzzles, painting pictures and drawing. Then when Bryce was put down for his afternoon nap, we had a "pamper day" where I tidied up her nails, put her moisturiser on her face, put her hair in bunches and dressed her up as a princess. She even got to have a bit of Mummy's lipstick on! She enjoyed it so much, bless her heart. She is such a girly girl and, I love having girly time with her. I love taking her shopping for clothes, she already knows exactly what she likes and what she doesn't like, and also has a love for shoes!
Saturday was the first day my Husband had at home for nine days! So we spent the day relaxing at home watching films and having some quality family time.
Today, Sunday, we went to a nursery down the road from us which has a little mini farm. Bryce loved the horses! Maybe he will be a horse rider like I was when I was younger.
Once we had seen all the animals, we headed over to a nearby village which has a river, usually full of ducks and swans. Unfortunately today, they had.....nothing! Just a few seagulls circling overhead. We still had fun throwing stones and twigs into the water though.
As we were so cold, we warmed ourselves up with hot soup and bread and Bryce has even learnt how to dip his bread into his soup.
After lunch Eloise made a chinese new year card, as it is the year of the dragon this year, she had a cute little dragon to colour in.
We then played Kinect Adventures on the xbox which is so funny and exhausting! Its when I'm playing this when I realise how badly I need to get fit!
I am looking forward to more fun next week, I love being a stay at home Mummy! :)
