Several important milestones

So yesterday wasn’t your average Sunday.

I was going to walk to the pub with mum but it was raining really heavily. So we all had a baguette meal at #1 Son’s request. Both children really enjoyed themselves and actually ate real food. TT also tried various adult foods such as horseradish cheese and Gorgonzola dip. No, she didn’t like them but at least it was funny when she tried.

TT has been trying bunches again:

I’m not sure she approves yet 😂🤣 whatever we do she yanks out within 10-30 minutes anyway sigh.

We decided that it was a good idea to actually get some exercise, so when we discovered we were almost out of cat food (I know right how did I let this happen?) We decided that I would go to Shaws with the sprogs and the hus-creature, and get some fresh air.

Well we managed it. Nobody ran off, broke anything and I didn’t collapse. Then something very amazing happened.

I drove the car home!!!!

Yes, me – who hasn’t been behind the wheel in over six months!!!

I was probably more than a little aggravating to the other drivers, but I made it home.

#1 Son even told me “you have done well Mommy, good job”

And trust me, I needed to hear that!!!

We went out tonight for a small spin around the immediate estate and to the train station and back – a bit of road position practice mainly. Again, nobody died and there was only one instance of my getting my side of the road screwed up – approaching a one-way gyratory on the left whilst turning left fired up my dormant muscle-memory neurons, but I moved over before there was an issue and didn’t even get beeped so all is good.

I need to be able to do the school run before Momma returns to good ole Blighty.

Tosay #1 Son voluntarily tidied TT’s room – it was done very well. What was amusing was TT checking all the cupboards in her little kitchen to see what he had put in there.

TT is now very upset to wake up to a wet nappy, and for the last two nights has insisted on “wee wee” within 10 min of her bedroom door closing.

So tonight we cut down her bedtime bottle amount and as of last night have cut out her 11pm bottle 🙀

We will be attempting to sit her on a potty at 11pm instead after getting #1 Son up for his middle of the night toilet break.

Both of them are growing up. TT is now almost 100% reliable on the #1 front, so now we are working on #2.

Night-dry may well be possible much sooner with her…

I’m also three weeks post-op now. Time flies when you’re “having fun” I guess.

One thought on “Several important milestones”

  1. Can you find DECENT baguette in the USA? With no added sugar or other Americanisms? Domi is always waxing lyrical about an Albanian baker up in Connecticut, who is a complete wizard and can bake to perfection any type of bread. Maybe he has a branch in Boston…

    You are obviously recuperating very well. Have you had another medical check-up yet? It is great that you are driving again, and Nathan’s comment is totally adorable. What a kind, thoughtful little boy! You must now be wondering how you managed to survive for months without a vehicle.

    Well done TT with her toilet training. I think the difficulties with #2 are linked to her painful constipation. Have you tried Domi’s dried fruit paste?

    My dad turned 90 yesterday. Their plan to dine out and celebrate were postponed on account of the arctic weather. Is it just as bad here, and it is snowing right now. Tomorrow’s agility class has been cancelled, but Lola would have missed it anyway as she will be in the operating theatre.
