Our Week so Far

So far this week has flown by. Sunday’s mayhem and frolics behind us. The little ones have been pretty orderly thus far. It’s amazing what the promise of screen time can do to focus our crew. John and I implemented no screen time before midday at the weekend, so that has asserted that we are the ones in control. And on weekdays, Thor and Aaliyah know that they have to wait until Amritsar and Tara are back from school and settled before ‘an hour’ prior to dinner. This seems to be working well.

No incidents to report, rather good news on the potty front. Caleb has been full on potty training since Saturday. Of course there have been a couple of mistakes, but we are persevering. He has to be dry before September and the onslaught of ‘Big School’. He has asked to be back in a nappy after his mistakes, but we have kept to the program. And I know that he is committed to make this happen, just as we are!

Caleb’s new hair do has certainly made him look more grown up – less chaotic. And this is good, as he has to fit in both at home and later on at school. Daddy is still giving him more ‘lappy time’ than is good for him, but is aware that this has to be limited in these coming months to prepare him for the transition to reception year at school. Tomorrow at midday, Sindy and I are going to the ‘Reception Year’ lunch at the school to meet the fellow parents of this years influx. Hoping that goes well. It will be good to see how our little ones mingle with their new classmates. Well, that’s all for now.
