A day well spent

image

I’m enjoying a cold beer (always my preference over wine) after squeezing all that can be squeezed into today.
Hubby had a day off and I intended to make the most if it. After he had dropped the older two boys at school hubby went off to his hair appointment. 2 year old and I packed a swim bag and headed off to the leisure centre. As we walked over the bridge to get to the centre 2 year old suddenly seamed to develop a fear of heights and belly crawled across the bridge whispering ‘I not gonna fall, I not gonna fall’. I think the other adults watching thought it was crewl that I was standing there full blown belly laughing instead of carrying him but I couldn’t help it!
We enjoyed a swim/splashing session in a very busy pool.
We popped to the library museum before meeting hubby at the cafe for lunch (in 2 year olds case half a plate of ketchup with some food hiding underneath thanks to being in control of the ketchup bottle).
Lovely hubby ordered me to treat myself so I headed off to the nail bar whilst he took 2 year old home to help clean his van (2 year olds favourite thing to do).
After school pick up we burned off some more energy at the park and then headed to the three boys hair appointment.
We finished the evening in front of a Scooby Doo movie exausted and with the boys looking smarter even if they did have sticky faces from the sweets they were sent home with by the barber.

I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
