Welcome! It’s pit & peak of the week time, a therapeutic way for me to vent about my low and rave about my high this week. I hope everyone is enjoying their bank holiday weekend.
I have had my head buried in christening slash birthday party stuff. From making last minute arrangements, to making homemade decorations, to finalizing all the food. I feel like I haven’t been able to breathe or do much less anything else.
Pit: It’s bank holiday weekend, one of the beauties of living in the UK is that you get SO many of them each year. But as we also all know, most of them come along side the rain, like this one. I was hoping to get a chance to enjoy my new garden, and soak up some rays. My plans for outdoor picnics and hikes with the family had to be put aside as we watch the rain bash the patio doors. It really is a pit!
Peak: With every pit there is always a silver lining and it came this week in the form of a few milestones from the kiddies. New car seats were long over due for the both of them as they reached their 1st and 3rd birthdays soon. With both of them in the 90% percentile in height, they seem to be rapidly out growing everything. Nevertheless, it was a magical moment to take out the infant car seat, one I may have shedded a tear over, and replace it with Buba’s toddler seat. Buba then got to move up to the next stage car seat. Both were as eager as the other to test them out.
Lately, I have been saying goodbye to a lot of infant things so I was sad to say goodbye to her infant car seat. One I will never have again. Although happy to get rid of it’s heaviness and bulkiness sitting around the house. But to say goodbye to the baby things in this house is getting harder as she is my last baby.
Buba kept shouting, “my new chair, Mommy, my new chair”. Missy Moo couldn’t believe her luck, a forward facing seat to nosy about. She was full of smiles and looking around, no longer having her legs scrunched up against the seat. I couldn’t believe how old they looked, sat there side by side, together.
My babies are growing up, too fast, and time seems to be flying by me at a rate I never expected. It was a great moment as we drove to our soft play area with both in the back, chatting away and looking at each other with excitement in their eyes. Buba was even more excited when he realized he could hold her hand if he wanted to and when they both started throwing toys back and forth, giggling, I knew this would be the next fun adventure to witness. It was a magical peak of the week moment for sure!
