Firstly: new birthday card added to the Occasion Cards page. A large art piece is in the works and will be shared shortly.
It has been a quiet few days because of all the rain – I know some people do activities regardless of the weather, but I am not one of them. I did take the little ones over to the park the other day so Amelia could ride her bike on the pump track. I am absolutely flabbergasted by how natural she is. She has only been to the track once, and she was pretty wobbly. This time she promptly decided to skip the flat bits and go straight the the “hills” – and executed her ride flawlessly! Do you know how long it took me to ride my mountain bike without crashing? Too long!
Cedric wanted to run around the track making himself a tiny unpredictable obstacle. He eventually decided he was going to make a break for it and high tailed it off to the grassy school field. When I thwarted him he sat and howled in disgust, so we went over to the actual playground where he had the best time.
In other news Cedric got his 2nd haircut the other day! I was very unimpressed with Chatters last time, it was rushed and the lady seemed annoyed with a wiggly boy. This time we went to The Heritage Barber and Rob was absolutely amazing. He had the best bedside manner with my son making him feel comfortable, took his time and masterfully followed the moving head. There was a TV in the studio and he was more than happy to put Frozen on in the background as a distraction, and even gave Cedric a lollipop. The lollipop really got Cedric’s attention and he sat very still figuring out how to eat it. It is amazing what little kids will eat. He dropped it in his lap – which was covered in hair – and proceeded to continue eating the fuzzy treat. He offered it to me and I declined haha. So if you want a great haircut for your wiggly little boy I recommend you talk to Rob.
Lastly in the world of moi, I had to hook up the hose to the pool drain and drain a whole bunch of water out. Over the course of a few days of rain the water level rose a few inches so it was about to overflow! Thankfully this time I had no crazy rushing water to soak me, and within 30 to 40 minutes it was down to a reasonable level again. The water temperature is holding strong at a comfortable level despite it being overcast all the time – so I am still loving those solar heaters.
