We went to Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park on Monday with some of our friends. It was such a pretty day so we thought it would be nice to take some family photos. Dubz had other ideas. He wanted to keep running around and playing. His face in the photo captures how he felt. Oh well, I guess I will have to keep waiting for that perfect family photo. Sigh.
About a week and a half ago, as Husband brought my suitcase downstairs for the drive to the airport, Dubz wanted to help. But he did not actually want to be helpful. He wanted to pack his dinosaur trainers into my suitcase. Since he was not flying with me to Florida, I did not think it was a good idea for him to pack away his favourite trainers into my luggage. So I took his shoes out of my suitcase. Dubz then did the only thing a two-year old could do. He cried and cried, then cried some more. I am really looking forward to the end of the terrible twos!
We were out for lunch with friends in Covent Garden on Sunday. The kids wanted to try the lemon from the jug of water. Moozles was obviously not expecting it to taste so sour. hahaha It’s not like it was the first time she had ever tried a lemon. Dubz, as usual, calmly ate it.

A couple of weeks ago we utilised our National Trust membership and visited Polesden Lacey in Surrey. It was our first time visiting, and we thought the grounds were lovely, and there was even a sweet playground. But that all paled in comparison to the statues. Some of the large statues were wrapped up, to protect them from the cold. The ground keepers obviously have a saucy sense of humour. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you what the statues look like. It did make for an interesting backdrop to the day’s photos. Haha

In my attempt to make things run more smoothly before bedtime, I no longer allow my children to watch television after dinner. I let them watch telly after school. Then they have to tidy up before dinner. I wanted the time after dinner to be more relaxing – reading, playing quietly and/or baths. On the first day of my experiment, the kids spent about 20 minutes rolling around on the living room floor. They had a great time, but there was no relaxation to be had. They have since gotten used to our new routine. But I love this photo as it shows what loons my children truly are. 🙂
Yup. That’s my sweet, happy little boy. And why is he so grumpy? Well, one day after pre-school last week I promised Dubz he could have a chocolate biscuit when we got home. Pre-school finishes at 12.30pm, and it’s a 15-minute walk home. Well, I walk and he sits in his buggy. Anyway, he has a sandwich, some cucumber and a drink on the way. Normally, when we arrive home, Dubz has a few slices of toast before his nap. But last week he was extra good. And I wanted to give him a reward. But I did not count on his daddy having finished off half a packet of dark chocolate digestives the night before. When I found there were no biscuits, there was nothing to be done.
That’s life with a two-year old and a Husband, who both adore chocolate biscuits.
