Here we go again, time to round up the firsts for another month. I started this series of posts because I have a type of epilepsy that affects my short-term memory. Quite simply if I don’t write it down I forget it. I don’t want to forget the moments that have brought a smile to my face, those that pulled at my heart-strings and even those that left me wanting to rip my hair out in frustration. There is a bit of a mix this month, so Harry here is what you got up to in June:
- Had your first sleep over – it’s taken some time but eventually you’ve had your first one. Ga-Ga finally offered and Mummy and Daddy went out to celebrate!
- Pulled a moonie in the middle of a restaurant – we has just been swimming and you complained you were itchy. I asked you to show me where. In the bat of an eyelid you pulled your pants down and parted your bum cheeks to show me the exact spot. It’s fair to say it wasn’t what anyone was expecting.
- Got a kitten – Skye from Paw Patrol. Which is how you introduce her to everyone.
- Lost a toe nail – you are forever banging your toes and it doesn’t seem to matter whether you have shoes on or not. It was very amusing hearing you tell people you were “growing a new toe”.
- Rode in a wheelbarrow – at breakneck speed across the drive and the back garden, didn’t he Daddy!!!????!!!
- Went to a school dressed as a crocodile – It was yet another dress up day at school. This time the theme was safari day. I think it is actually a dinosaur costume but it doubled up nicely as a crocodile suit.
- Climbed up South Stack – well part of the way. You are not known for your love of walking so when you were whingeing and moaning that you felt poorly I just ignored you. I was soon made to feel really guilty because on the way home in the car you were sick. Very sick indeed. I had to strip you down to your undies, wipe you down with my hoody, and wash everything down with what was left in my water bottle. Thank god for leather car seats.
- School report – I am so proud of you. So what if you can’t recognise numbers very well, or you find holding a pen a bit difficult (you pick up everything with your left but you hold everything better with your right….) what was important to me was your attitude. And Son, you are a tryer, you don’t like to disappoint, you like to make people smile and you are caring. All things I know but it’s always nice to know other people know that too.
Love you x
