This week has been a bit of a slow burner for us. I’m really struggling to remember what we have been up to. I must remember to start writing thing’s down as they happen because honestly, this brain isn’t as good at retaining information as it used to be.
Here is this weeks #Little Loves:
This week we actually managed to watch a few films together (I know what a shocker right).
We caught Dev Patel’s new film (Slumdog Millionaire) “Lion” and it was fan-bloody-tactic. We watched it quite late at night and as a testament to just how good it was I stayed up the whole time. It’s the story of five-year-old Saroo who end’s up getting lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India away from his family. The little boy is five and lost, doesn’t know his mum’s name (she’s just mum to him)and speaks a different language.
He learns to survive in Kalkata before being adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham ). Twenty Five years later using Google Earth he tracks down his family. I won’t give it away but I was bawling by the end of it.
The Walking Dead:
The epic walking dead returned to our screens this week and boy have we missed it. I don’t want to give anything away but if you are a fan you agree with me when I say it’s going to be one hell of a fight!This season has been bloody brilliant, mainly down to one villain NEAGAN! This season has been more about the humans and less about the actual walkers.
We caught the new Disney flick this week and I think it’s going to be a big hit with the boys. I’m not sure what its about as I was in and out of the room doing chores while it was on. Its chock full of singalong songs which always goes down well. One of them being titled “Your welcome”, cute you might think but not so much as the response from Max after he had thrown my phone and smashed my screen.
This week I have made more of an effort to turn the TV off and have the radio on. As a family we definitely aren’t listening to enough of the good stuff. Although Kai has started to sleeping listening to Classical FM (something we did with Max) I think listening to this genre of music can help baby’s brain power, something I wrote about this week.
It’s been a mixed bag play wise this week and we haven’t really done much together. I have made a mental note to start moire sensory with Kai, I don’t want him to miss out on the things Max got to do just because we can’t go to classes. It’s on the list.
So I already mentioned that Max had thrown and smashed my phone so I’m guessing you can all tell what kind of a mood he’s been in. The word of the week for him is “No” but said with so much attitude. We are definitely knee deep in the terrible twos. My mum in law says it will only get worse, which quite frankly makes me want to cry. We had a tantrum of epic proportions this week, it took him nearly half an hour to calm down.
Kai has been a slight whinge bag, the poor love also has a case of the gloopy eye. I was worried it was conjunctivitis but after a quick trip to the dry he confirmed, it was down to teething (isn’t everything). He prescribed drops but were just waiting it out and cleaning with cooled boiled water so see if that clears it. I don’t fancy having to put drops in his eyes if it can be avoided.
Both lads are coming on leaps and bounds, with Max starting nursery and Kai growing healthier and stronger with each passing day.
What have you been up to this week?
