We had a lovely day. It started with swimming lesson, with Alex at Pizzey Park public pool, which started at 9am. BB was amazing ... she is teaching herself really. Alex reckons she is 98% floating by herself ( using the holding by the head method ). After the lesson we played a bit and miss insisted that I did not help as she ducked under the water and then reappeared all smiles and giggles. We had a quick shower and changed into clothes for smarties with Ms Lynda at 10:15 (just next door).
BB can hop on one foot and clap. So Lynda asked her to stick out her tongue .... which she did. Apparently it's some kind of test - being able to do 3 things at once. Then Lynda joked and said 'Ok, the next thing is to sing as well', which BB proceded to do of course :) Very funny.
Anyway, the lovliest thing at gym today was BB helping the smaller ones to climb, and then sitting with Abbey ( just 2), commiserating while she had a cry about her teething molars.
After that we drove to Pacific Fair, just to go to Medicare, and on the way back to the car we passed a stall which sells shells. BB had great fun looking, touching and comparing and came away with a $2 starfish, which we have added to the botanical/marine corner of the playroom. Miss fell asleep on the way home and I thought that I would have an hour or two to do something, but she woke up as we arrived home and refused to sleep.
We played with dough - which we made yesterday, drew a bit, played with the alphabet cards and then it was time to make dinner. It was chicken soup tonight - because I felt like it! BB helped to wash the rice and barley. Then bathtime. And then dad was home. Dinner, reading and bed.
