Y3 - 345/365: "Hurry! Our Show Is On!!"
Almost every night and randomly at other times a short, clay-animated programme comes on Nick Jr. called Watermill Farm. It's only a minute or two long and filled with clay-animated farm animals with cheeky facial expressions. It's usually the pigs, chickens, cows and sheep up to something silly and Ryan thinks it's an absolute hoot! What is even better is that when he hears the intro music, he immediately runs around the room in search of Daddy, shouting his name and squeaking and jumping until Matt comes in and allows Ryan to sit upon his lap.
My blond boys sit in a complete trance watching the antics of the animals and then, when it's over, Ryan jumps up and down, clapping his hands, and cheering, "yaaaaaay!"
I'm just lucky that he allows me to fill in when Daddy isn't home.
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!
