Sometimes life ‘just takes over’ and some things get left behind.

There is no way to write about all the small, day to day event’s that have been experienced by the mostly functional family, over the past 4 months or so, like Lolly toilet training … and LML not, or the development’s in both children’s communication, the visits with both sets of foster carers, their various successes, struggles and (for LML) head teachers awards.

so …

There has been some snow

LML had a birthday and got a bike, which she is a little nervous of ..

Lolly liked LML’s bike so much though, that when she had a birthday … 🙂

There's been planting seeds,

and blowing bubbles (lots of blowing bubbles!).

There's been playing apart ...

... and playing together

There's been lots of trips to the park.

And even Lolly's first demonstration

The year has started well.

GM manages to successfully divide Little Sis’s precious ‘blanky’ in two, bind the edges and get one in the wash. As soon as the wash is finished, she gets the clean half on the washing line.

A little later CD goes out to a meeting, leaving GM to manage bath time on her own for the first time. GM is feeling on top of everything, the girls getting evenly spaced snacks, treats and rewards in the build up to bath time. Indeed, she is feeling so together that she puts the rest of the washing out and brings in the now dry clean ‘blanky’. This is speedily exchanged with the very dirty one, which is accepted without a ripple by Little Sis.

The bath is running, and as both children have filled their nappies in the past half hour, they are now running/crawling around bare bottomed.

GM walks into the hall to see LML sitting on the clean ‘blanky’.

“Wee wee” she says smiling, “mummy, wee wee”. LML points to the blanky.

“Oh LML, you haven’t?” she asks, without much hope.

Oh yes she had …

pitter patter, pitter patter…

“LML?”… “What are you doing?”

“What’s that in you hand?… Oh, for god’s sake LML, you’re supposed to tell mummy and daddy when you’ve had a poo!!”
