The weekend

This week I feel like I've spent most of my time at the bus stop.  In between bus journeys we have been very busy.  The 6-9 month clothes have gone up in the loft and the 9-12 month clothes have come down.  We cheered on St Andrews house at sports day.  Isaac was pushed to his limits at school.  Isaac's steps were installed by the doors to the reception class.  Cars 2 was watched several times by 3 very tired boys.  We went to the after school thing at the church where someone praised my boys behaviour (proud mummy moment).  Jeremiah took part in the year 2 sprint and the infant school bat and beanbag races (another proud mummy moment).  Malachi clapped when Jeremiah finished his race.

And now it's the weekend and I have mostly been doing housework and recharging my batteries ready for another busy week.  I have been struggling with carrying Malachi while pushing Isaac in his wheelchair.  The ergo is a lot better than anything else I've tried but however I do it a 19 month old is heavy.  I've managed to get him on my back once and that was better but I haven't been able to do that since.  Malachi likes to fling himself backwards at the crucial moment which makes me nervous.  I have discovered a babywearing group fairly near us so I will try and get to the next meeting.
