Today we flew for the first time with kids and everyone was very nice to us. Sadly Owen was still very fussy and grumpy and totally unimpressed by the aeroplane. And the kids only let me sleep for 30mins on the 13hour red eye flight.
Today grandpa came to help look after the children while we frantically packed and sorted stuff out for our trip to Singapore tomorrow!
Today Harriet finally had a few massive poops after days of constipation. She seemed less miserable now and so far been sleeping much more soundly. Fingers crossed. Feeling bad that we keep telling Owen off for being rough with Harriet. He just seemed so hyper lately, or maybe he's always been like that.
Today we watched more The Expanse on Netflix. Harriet was up 8 times last night! So I was generally very cranky today.
Today I did more sorting and packing and got rid of loads of junk! Harriet had a cold and was constipated and was very miserable in general. Poor girl.
Today Harriet was angry all day after a bad night. Owen went to play at Maddie's house after preschool, and Peter had fun socialising with Maddie's dad while I made use of the quiet time to do more packing and sorting.
Today I sorted out my old clothes to throw out and it made me sneeze and sneeze. So much to declutter! I listened to End of The World Running Club while breastfeeding, and rather liked the book. We watched The Expanse on Netflix in the evening and rather liked the show.
Today we went to Witney to do shopping and run errands.
Today we had lunch at the Charlbury Deli and Owen wanted 2 cheese rolls! Later, Owen had a great time feeding peas to Harriet during 'pea time'.
Today we went to the Charlbury Street Fair where Owen had 2 Empanadas, one ice cream and a chocolate cake. We were so exhausted we didn't make dinner for ourselves but only fed the children. Harriet was so tired from not napping that she fell asleep at dinner time.
Today I woke early and did more sorting through the children clothing and old stuff. Harriet was especially cute and been bottom shuffling a lot.
Today we gave Harriet meat for the first time (Chicken casserole) and she loved it.
Today Owen ate carrots (he never used to touch them) and exclaimed, 'I love carrots', and even finished his entire portion of Spaghetti Ragu. Earlier in the evening he had gotten very upset with us for not tidying up the mess in our living room. Who is this child??
Today I woke early and did loads of housework including sorting out the Harriet's baby clothes. When Owen got back from preschool, we went to the park.
Today we spent a long time at the new village library where I read Owen millions of books while Harriet slept in the buggy. He was very happy and was later very helpful when I gave the children dinner, bathe them and put them to bed while Peter went out to see Steward Lee in Oxford on his 'night out'.
Today we had a cosy Sunday at home doing loads of cutting and pasting with Owen while it was rainy outside.
Today I finally went to see our new community centre, library & cafe, and absolutely loved it. It was the official opening and Owen got to try a bit of badminton and basketball. In the evening I gave Portuguese knitting a try.
Today I definitely saw Harriet move herself towards Owen's toys and proceeded to eat them while he was away at nursery. It rained thunderstorms all day, so I didn't go out to see the new library.
Today we finally moved baby Harriet from the bedside crib to a cot in another room. Freedom!
Today Peter went to our new library at our new village community centre for the first time. Very exciting! Harriet had a very bad bleeding nappy rash, and she cried and cried. Poor girl. In the evening we finished watching Westworld, which I thought was rubbish.
