Is it really the middle of April already? Somehow, I actually missed the 15th… which never happens. My days this month are blurring together and the calendar seems to be filling up so fast each month leading up to summer. I should be prepared for this, as it happens every year. For some reason we put off everything between September and January and then February hits and it seems we have catch ups every week, on top of our normal busy schedule. It’s always a rush to see everyone we haven’t seen in a while before we leave for the entire summer. Work for both Mr P and I have been really busy too where some weeks we are passing each other and handing off the kids. The kids are no different, their schedules are worse than ours in terms of social events, to do’s, and sports. I need a calendar as big as my dining room table to keep us all on track. Do you ever feel like you are playing secretary to the family?
I have been stocking up on the kid’s spring/summer clothes as they have grown out of everything they own, unfortunately, at the exact same time. While it’s still not quite warm I refuse to buy more warm clothes and them be in them for a minute. So we have jumped in to warmer weather attire whether the weather agrees with us or not. The kids have both had huge growth spurts this month. We even had a huge milestone with B losing his very first tooth. AWWW! *tears He looks so much older with a tooth missing. I always had in my head it would be closer to seven years old not almost five years old but the dentist assured us its normal and that babies that get early teeth lose teeth early. Another one is already wobbly next to the one he lost and he is absolutely over the moon. “This means I am a big kid right, Mommy?” he said excitedly when I put his tooth under his pillow ready for the Tooth Fairy last night.
TOGETHER THEY ARE LOVING:
Biking riding to the park (as always).
Wearing shorts and refusing to wear coats.
Traveling on the Ferry boat and watching Mommy go green to Ireland.
Spending Easter with their cousins.
Laughing at their new inside language and saying poo (what is with that?).
Going to the movies together to see Alvin and the Chipmunks.
We have had a busy month including taking the Ferry over to Ireland for Easter which was lovely. The kids love travelling together and definitely both have sea legs too, unlike their mother. I am loving watching them come together after school and nursery and telling each other all about their day. I can barely get a few words out if I question them about their day but they are more than happy to share even if they have pooed or not with each other. That’s fine with me. I just listen in on their car conversations. I hope they always tell each other everything. There is nothing wrong with having that one person that knows you the most in your life to lean on and go to as you grow up. That’s the beauty of siblings.
