Year 2 Day 248: A Day in the Life...
Once upon a time there was a little boy called Ryan who loved playing on his play mat. He would reach and bat at toys while lying on his belly. Sometimes these toys would bounce off the tips of his fingers and he would have to pull on his play mat to scoot forward and toward the toy. Other times he would get frustrated and upset that he couldn't reach the toy, so he would lie his head down and pout.
Some of this pouting involved making a "Buh-buh-bbbbbb" sound whilst blowing spit bubbles and raspberries.
The times that Ryan was the most happy of all were when he got to spend time with Mommy & Daddy, Nan & Grandad, Auntie Emma, Uncle Daz and Cousin Amy. In fact, the only other thing that could make him light up as much was playing and talking with his Yojojo monkey from Waybuloo.
His Mommy & Daddy and the rest of the family enjoyed playing and talking with Ryan as well.
Sometimes, Ryan would have SO much fun that he would fall fast asleep in his car seat and wouldn't even wake up when Daddy carried inside the house from the car. This is when Mommy would feel so bad for having to disturb him just to put him to bed. But because Ryan is such a good boy, he would continue sleeping and not make a peep when he was carried up to his cot.
From this point, Mommy would stare at his beautiful face in awe and count down the hours until she could see his lovely, gorgeous smile first thing on a morning!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
