It was J’s birthday on friday – yes I know, I’m a Bad Blogger and didn’t give him a shout out, bite me – and he was feeling a little sad that his brothers didn’t have any cash to be able to come down for the weekend to help him celebrate. So I had a lightbulb moment and suggested advised packed his bags and told him he was going for the weekend and Zack would be too.
Luckily he and Zack were delighted with the idea and off they toddled to catch a train yesterday morning at 9.30am.
It will have been Zack’s first ever ride on a train, and also the first time he’ll remember having been staying with his grandparents, although he was there once before when he was around 5 months old. I’ll hopefully hear more than just a few vague bits and pieces from J when they get back tomorrow.
Needless to say my weekend has been oh-so peaceful and, although I’m really looking forward to seeing my boys tomorrow, I might just have to arrange for them to do this more often!
Max has been a wee star and has started WALKING!!!! loads over the course of today. I think he’s more confident when there’s not a big brother careering around the place like a monkey on crack all the time. Not that I’d ever compare my oldest son to a monkey.
He’s started calling me Mumma! Finally! Took you’re time little dude… sheesh! Now you’d better perform these awesome acts of not-so-babyness tomorrow when your dad n brother get back or you’re gonna make Mumma look like a fool! Whaddayamean I already look like a fool?? /slap!
Oh, and most importantly? I haven’t been being woken up repeatedly from 4.30-5am onwards from a certain 3 year old and am feling MUCH better for it. 🙂
Aaaanyhoo… that’s what’s been going on in our lives this weekend, what have you been up to?
