In awe of sensible companions....

This week....

I am so tired. It's been a tough couple of weeks.  Had my tooth out on Tuesday under conscious sedation and feeling achy but ok. Still tussling with Dan and his tantrums but we've found a system that works (the time out step) and the frequency is definitely less. Work is a bit like walking on eggshells at the moment and that is unlikely to change but sticking with it and seeing how we go. Loving Strictly but particularly Susanna Reid.


Bets is now walking about and Dan is getting a hint of how annoying a little sister can be but he is incredibly loving and gentle with her. We had his parents evening and all is going well. Getting him into the routine of homework has been challenging and he seems to have lost his enthusiasm for reading but he does randomly read things that I don't expect him too and words I don't expect him to so I'm not worrying.  His teacher is lovely and said she was concerned about his friendship choices, he tends to choose people to work with who distract him which I've known about since Reception but not sure what I can do about it as it's something that happens at school and at not at home.

Finally I shall inflict some photos on you.
