What I’ve learned this week #27

This week can only be described as pretty good… Read on!

What I’ve learned this week

  1. Stop press – shut the front door – Miss Belle only went through flipping tunnel!!!! Awoooooohooooo!!! And not just one tunnel, oh no. A tunnel at Mini Monkeys, and our tunnel at home! (Yes we’ve had it since she was about 6 months old. She’s nearly 2 and a half and she’s only just gone through it. You can see why this is a big deal!) It was a high five, squeals of delight, running for my camera, jumping up and down, fist pump emoji text to Daddy delight!
  2. It gets better….. SHE WENT UNDER THE PARACHUTE!!! Previously deemed “too scary”, I encouraged her to hold it at Mini Monkey’s this week. She must have been on some crazy high of endorphins from her new “going-through-tunnels-oooh-this-is-actually-fun” moment. At the end of the class she lay down with the other children under the parachute for the Peekaboo song. Best. Day. Ever!
  3. Of course, this being Miss Belle, she declined to show her Tumble Tots buddies her new skills and refused to go through the longer tunnel. Back to reality…
  4. I took some well deserved me time this week and had a hair cut and my nails done. WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY! This is for two reasons. 1) I’m at a hen do this weekend and I just don’t want to turn up like a frumpy, frazzled, frizzy haired mum. And 2) It was my third hair cut since I became a Stay At Home Mum last June. So I think it was long overdue. I went for a last-minute appointment somewhere new and I’m really pleased with my new cut and colour. Miss Belle is in desperate need of cut so I may take her back there in a few weeks. It’s been months since our second attempt at her first hair cut!
  5. We had a really nice day on Bank Holiday Monday taking the bike trailer out and cycling about 12 miles. I may do a blog post on it soon. I was so shattered I couldn’t go Spinning on Tuesday!

I’m really looking forward to catching up properly with my uni mates and having time to chat without having to parent! Hope you all have a fab weekend too, whatever you are doing.
