Happy Mothers Day! Especially to those who are having their first one today. We had a relaxing start to the day, and by we I do mean Ainsley had a sleep-in followed by cuddles and a card & present from Rory.
We have had another fun week. Rory has really started taking to the whole solid food thing. We bought a variety of Watties jar puree’s for him to try and he adores the beef one! We have found the apple and mango though gives him a really red bum, picking it is the fruit acid at work. Which is really quite interesting as the plain apple that we made doesn’t have the effect on him. Regardless, it is all having an effect on the outputs… PHEWEE!!!! I forgot just how much the transition from milk to solids is.. not just in smell but also texture. And the fruit is having an almost laxative effect, had higher than average number of poonamis this week. But hey, could be worse. I could be stuck in an office!
Swimming on Monday was different. Stacey our usual instructor was away, and I don’t do change that well. That combined with a few people away meant we had a tiny group of 4 all up which took a little adjusting to. Was nice to have that time as always in the pool with him and his friends. Hoping that things are back to some resemblance of normal this week. Coffee group was the usual laugh a minute. Not that I can tell you what we discussed (First rule of coffee group: what happens in the group stays in the group) but needless to say it bounced to all four corners of topics!
A couple of other little outings rounded out the week nicely. Coffee with my former manager on Wednesday and Wriggle & Rhyme on Friday at the library made for a nicely balanced week really. I need to be careful that our weeks don’t become some large version of Groundhog Day, which I can see happening rather easily. I like routine. I like to know what we are doing and I think that is going to be a challenge for me over the next few months. I thought I had it covered with a jar of random activities on poker chips that we can dive into to mix things up each week but we/I have yet to embrace that. Maybe this week…..
