Sorry for the slack update - no reason for it either. Photos will follow later.
Esmee is running now and being the biggest dare devil. She makes it half way up the ladder to the slide at the park before i've even got there! She has cut all four of her eye teeth (All on the same day!). She is very headstrong and know exactly what she wants and man watch out if she doesn't get it!
Xander is growing up faster than i ever thought was possible. I don't need to remind him to go to the toilet any more and he even sleeps without a nappy for his day sleep. We have begun to talk about no nappy at night too but he's not keen on that just yet. We are having problems with no listening ears, but he makes up for it by being very lovely and caring towards Esmee. We are looking at other kindys to send Xander as The Kids Club has become too expensive and he won't be moving to Kids Club Two (and the free hours!) until July! I've looked at a couple and haven't liked the teacher:child ratio of 1:15. Other options are all the way over in Chartwell but hopefully i hear back from St Andrews and Te Rapa soon. It's a shame because he really likes Kids Club and i love the structure and learning there. Oh well, we will see how it goes.
I've hurt my back probably from picking up the kids and have a doctor's appointment on Thursday. It's been sore for about 3 weeks and i thought with time it will get better, but it seems to be getting worse so am getting with checked out.
On another note, i'm starting to write another book this week, this time to submit to Mills and Boon. Quite excited about this and hopefully it doesn't take a year to write this one!
Alan is busy with work and bit worried about the recession in regards to the effect on positions at work. Trying to make himself indispensable in the hopes he doesn't find himself without a job.
He's thinking about Winter Hockey, which will give him needed stress relief. He never says so but we all know how he secretly stresses!
Well that's it for now. Hope you are all well. Photos will follow soon.
