JJ has turned two very effectively, with frequent tantrums when things aren’t going right. This is such a change from a boy who has always been so easy-going and amenable. It is also a bit awkward when combined with a baby and Mip (who falls apart very readily). I may have to re-instate JJ’s afternoon sleep. if things don’t improve to help us get through the day.
Bee found the roller-skates today (passed down form his Uncles) so he and Mip spent the day learning to roller-skate in the garden. I’m not sure they became particularly competent, but they enjoyed themselves a lot. Poor Bee – when Matt came home early today Bee was full of enthusiasm to show him how good he was on roller-skates and jumped out of the kitchen down the step to the patio on his skates and inevitably ended up on his bottom.
Otherwise the last few days have consisted of painting, lots of magnetix, a bit of reading, lots of Duplo, playdough and baking and Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs when JJ can’t be consoled.
