Today has been an odd day, it started off very emotional and little Noah was devastated by the news of the explosion. I then found that I just couldn’t concentrate at work today – I had a lot of paperwork to do too. Then I sorted the garden out when I got home with the kiddies. Isla and Noah enjoyed playing with the water and Barbies and Super Heroes. It was a nice evening in the sunshine.
Today was a busy one, but a calm busy one. Does that make sense? Noah had beavers, where he had to share some photos that he’d taken. And Isla had great fun being nosey when we went to pick him up. I sneaked in on them playing- I love hearing their imaginations whirring.
Today, no, this entire weekend has been so stressful. I am not sure if its a combination of tiredness from all four Constants. Or if it is just the little ones. Noah has been extremely hard work this weekend. Emotional, grumpy, rude, irritating and just not himself. I feel absolutely worn out. I managed to get some nice photos of them. I had to use games and mathematical sums to chill them out for long enough to snap away! Lets hope a nice big sleep makes a difference for tomorrow.
This photo sums up the day, entirely! Rain + bored children + restless Daddy = very stressful day! Daddy wanted to get out with the children, he managed to before the rain kicked in at lunchtime. Everyone seemed tired today. Noah cried about everything bless him. Its horrible when you are so tired you are really emotional about everything. It took a lot of patience to get through the day.
I had a busy morning: I took little Snoopy for his pre-summer hair cut, then did the school run and then the shopping. I had to get some cream and cleaner for Snoopy’s ears as they are a bit sore again. The poor little thing. Then after I collected my beautifully clipped pup, I had a nice lunch and snuggle with them. It was really nice to sit in the quiet. I decided to run to school to check out the new HR monitor on my FitBit tracker. The kiddies enjoyed playing hide and seek again on the way home. The rain held off too – phew!
I worked later than normal today and didn’t get home until 6:45pm. It was nice walking in to the children and Daddy sitting in the lounge. Isla was reading her book to Daddy. She is doing really well with her reading. They had taken it in turns to read. That kind of thing makes me feel happy!
We played hide and seek after school and the children “dabbed” through out the walk. Its funny I didn’t even know what this was until a few weeks ago when my friends children did it. Now my little ones think it is funny as I laughed so much when I heard what it was. I am so “not” cool for school!
Monday nights have become a girlie night – the boys go to Beavers and tonight they have also gone for a haircut. So Isla and I had a girlie chat over a snack. Then snuggled up and listened to Christmas songs – obvious bedtime song choice in May. It was a nice chilled out evening – but my step count is way behind Hubby’s now. Oops!
Today we had Isla’s final party to celebrate her fifth birthday. She had a lot of family around to play with and enjoyed blowing the candles on her ginormous cake (not my best make by a long chalk) – everyone enjoyed it though. Isla and Noah were absolutely worn out by bedtime, they dozed off within seconds. I love it when those evenings happen!
