Although the title of this post may sound like I've been a lazy mummy who can't get her a into g to dress her child, I swear this is not the case - although I must admit it was really nice not having to dress him this morning (change of nappy being the exception). He slept through the night last night too, so we started off on the right note this morning. I'm still not 100% well, and now just happen to have lost my voice as well, so I'm squeaking my way through this week.
We had a pyjamas and pancakes day at playgroup this morning.
I helped make the pancakes, but Kien was constantly asking me to go outside to play with him. He was very patient when I told him I had to do this and I'd come out after everyone had eaten.
He ate one bite of a pancake, had a few slices of banana, and was tucking into the rest of the fruit on his plate when someone plonked a container of blueberries on the table. With his favourite food on the table there was no way he was eating anything else. I think he may have consumed half that container of blueberries.
Finally I went outside and played with him.
Here's a little montage of him outside this morning. He's a real chatterbox, as you'll see, and he's also getting to an age where he is actually playing and interacting with other kids.
It rained on and off all day so I decided to stay home for the rest of the day.
My neighbour Diane gave me some fish that came all the way from Kiribati - her daughter's boyfriend is from there and the fish (a whole chilly bin full) were a gift from him.
I baked them for dinner tonight (with Kien's help peeling the garlic).
I'm bracing myself for another hard day in the office tomorrow. It's going to continue being this busy until we deliver this project at the end of October. I just need to make sure I'm pacing myself and not take the whole thing too seriously otherwise I'll drive myself mad as a result of my over zealous perfectionist tendencies.
I've had a lovely camomile tea, and I'm off to bed now. Goodnight.
