Day 261: This Is Not The Day You Were Looking For

on September 17, 2012

Anyone out there think they are cursed? I’m sure the more I plan to do something, the less likely it is to happen.

Today was originally meant to be cleaning, Grandmother’s chores, a little bit of grant manipulation and fundraising and a little writing and planning.

Instead for most of it I have been attached to the sofa with a poorly Thing 2 attached to me. I will probably be cast out from the PPC (or Perfect Parents Club) for even suggesting this but hey ho, I am fairly certain I prefer my kids when they have a mild dose of something.

  • There is no ‘I’m bored’ moans from across the room.
  • They’re more loving, giving cuddles and basically more cute. A bit like a Mogwai crossed with a rag doll.
  • They sit still and quiet letting you get on with bits and pieces as they watch Spongebob… thank gravy for Spongebob, until they need their next medicinal cuddle!
  • They don’t want feeding every five seconds.
  • Did I mention quiet? Like proper peace and everything. I’ve barely heard a peep out of Thing 2 today.

Overall I think it reminds me of the days when they were young infants. That small period of time when it was okay to just sit and hold your babies, as they slept and fed, when they actually wanted to be with you but couldn’t crawl, toddle or run away yet. Thing 2 is still so young, yet so grown up at the same time and just to sit and watch over him is a privilege I don’t get too often. Even if right now he looks like a zombie wearing his batman pjs with a red superhero cape – just for effect mind.

At least he’s doing his school work eh? Check out the Pink Box 1 book while snuggled under the poorly blanket.
Today’s Activity: Some impromptu baking for the Brothers Thing’s pack ups – a type of bakewell slice, using black cherry jam and an almond sponge. Sometimes I’m just too nice to those kids.
