Currently household appliances seem to be providing much entertainment for my 25 month old so I’ve had to think of the kiddy versions. The children’s Dyson ball upright and a washing machine both made by Casdon are his favourite toys. I’m hoping the novelty won’t wear off but chances are they will. He has a toy iron and I might just get him an ironing board and train him up. I find his love for painting continues. Must admit I’m a bit over it now but it’s a daily activity. He’s all smiles when the paint set comes out while the beige carpet looks up in terror.
The other day I imagined what he would look like in adult life in his 20s and 30s, would he be wearing a shirt suit and tie to work or in a profession wearing a uniform or an actor perhaps as he’s pretty good at creating dramas already. It seems a long way away but here we are in April 2016 and it only feels like yesterday when I watched the London New Year’s Eve celebrations on TV which was by far my favourite fireworks display so far!
I swear he was laughing 5 mins ago…
The terrible twos are in full swing and I am trying not to lose it when things spiral out of control. I’ve said this before but I consider myself to be a gentle and patient human being but I’ve really had to grow more patience as some days my little human acts like he’s possessed. No offence Jay! I know he is at an age where he wants to assert his independence and doesn’t always like being told what to do. I’ve had to be calm whilst I carry him out of places kicking and screaming. He’s still a young little thing so I don’t like raising my voice at him, it doesn’t suit me. I’m amazed how much he understands and I know this is all part of growing up.
One things for sure l never get really lonely these days with my 25 month old keeping me company. He chatters away and seeks to engage my attention whenever he can. He helps me with the laundry. Rearranges my cupboards and then some more, he loves his kale crisps and does an on the spot dance when he sees me rustling the crisps in a bowl. He takes my hand and holds onto my fingers tightly when we head out for our daily walk. His last two back molars are cutting through so he has wanted extra cuddles. I do relish this moments as one day it won’t be the same.
Through a particularly difficult month on a personal level I told myself to be grateful for the life I have and the one I helped to create.
