‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Kahlil Gibran

This week I have decided to link up two photos one of each of the boys. It struck me today that I may struggle to keep up with this once I am back at work. Hopefully this will not be the case, its just you may need to put up with badly taken photos on my phone… like this week!

Friday night is curry night in our house. Monkey has something called a word house, each week he has four sight words that he needs to be able to spell and read. You do not move onto the next one until you are confident and can identify the words. Monkey struggled with these before Christmas. However touch wood we have seemed to have turned a corner and we have been getting a new one each week. I am so proud of him, so this week instead of having curry at home we went out for one.

He loved eating the papadoms with the mango chutney and mint sauce, eating several to him self. Before finishing off a chicken korma all to himself. And for once there was no bad behaviour, sulking or shouting. Just four people (Kipper slept) sitting down early evening and eating dinner. Of course it made me smile a little when I saw the horrified faces of the other patrons when we walked in….

This one finally has his two bottom teeth!! On Sunday the first one cut quickly followed by the second today… His mood has returned to its sunny disposition, here he is with his Gumigem Teething Ring. It was a source of amusement while we waited for Monkey to finish his  gym class. Kipper is also moving more and more everyday although not officially crawling yet. I fear that gymnastics will become even more of a challenge when he does….
