I have to admit that when I first woke this morning I wasn’t entirely sure what planet I was on, never mind what day it was! Once the cogs eventually started whirring and I realised that we were back to ‘Monday’ I reluctantly dragged myself from my comfortable and cosy pit to get ready for the day, the kids on the other hand weren’t so willing to get out of their beds nor to get ready for that matter.
Mornings have never been this households strong point, I doubt they ever will be either. Thankfully Paul is on hand to rally the troops together and up until now we seem to have made it to School on time. Last week however I discovered just how little attention J pays during the morning as he’d somehow managed to dress himself in his sisters school shirt. Said shirt resembled a crop top rather than a polo shirt as it was five sizes too small and just so happened to have a frilly collar to add insult to injury.
Once again Paul came to our rescue with a spare shirt, not that J seemed to care what others may have thought as he was quite happy and couldn’t really see an issue with wearing his sisters shirt for the day.
J seems far less bothered by what other people may say, think or do these days, he was once an incredibly sensitive soul but over the years he seems to have grown a thick skin and is quite willing to take part in things which he once wouldn’t have dreamed nor dared to try.
Last Friday night a few of our friends came over to enjoy some snacks, drinks and games, one of which happened to be ‘Jibber Jabber’. J didn’t seem to keen on getting involved at the time but the following day when our friends returned for a catch up and to collect a few of their belongings that they had left behind J asked to give the game a go.
Jibber Jabber J
Not only was he willing to force a rather large piece of plastic into his mouth but he seemed quite relaxed with the idea of unfamiliar faces watching him attempt to mouth tongue twisters whilst wearing said contraption. He had us all in fits of giggles as he desperately tried to mouth the words whilst drooling like a dog by the dinner table.
E on the other hand found that her mouth was a little too small for the game so decided to dish out the Dobble cards for some fun with our friends. She has come on leaps and bounds since starting School, especially so with her reading and writing which she seems to take great pleasure in sharing with us whilst sat at the table.

Our kids seem to be growing up far too quickly, they surprise me each and every day and I couldn’t be prouder.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
