Y4 - 140/365: Helping Some More...
I'll be sad when the day comes that helping out is something he no longer enjoys. As this was one of our final Mommy-Ryan mornings before I go back to work next Tuesday, we made good use of our time to start with a game of 'Hide & Seek.' In Ryan's version, the counting is shortened to only numbers he prefers to count at the time before he shouts, "Ready not, here come!" Then he mimics what I do when I "seek" for him...questioning aloud if Mama is behind the door or the gate and answering "no" to himself as well.
He's quite a funny little character.
After breakfast, we discovered Myst's food dish was empty...so we filled it.
He then had a nice wind-down period where he played with the gold "Pway-poh."
At tea-time it was back to hard grafting with helping Mommy with the mashed potato for our cheesy potato pie.
Then a bit of sweeping the kitchen floor while the laundry went.
While things were in the oven, however, Matt tagged in for some Ryan-Daddy time since he was forced to miss him all day long at work. We're both looking forward to a nice weekend, just the three of us!
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!
