Bits and Pieces

~I'm working on my series number 3 right now, but it's taking a little while. I've been scanning old photos for it, and that takes time!

~Cherry is loving our new schedule! She loves swimming so much, and each time we go, she's more fearless than the time before! The lifeguards find her quite entertaining and one of them even said to me (after Cherry dunked herself and didn't get up right away) "You looked more scared than SHE did!"

~I've been taking her to playgroups as well, and today we totally found a winner. She's liked both of the ones we've gone to so far, but today she had a blast (we're trying another, different one tomorrow too). Today's group was held in a big hall, and half the hall was blocked off from the other by gymnastics equipment, and on one half was all sorts of ride 'em cars and trikes and other things with wheels, and the other side had tables and chairs for the parents to sit at and a bunch of smaller toys. The place was PACKED with kids, and Cherry had a blast running around, stealing stuff from other kids and playing with everything and everyone. INCLUDING other parents! I have to admit that I had a slight twinge of jealousy when she grabbed a book and planted herself on another mother's lap! She did it at the last play group too!

I've been enjoying getting out more and meeting people too. I've already made two connections with other mothers, as well as I have re-connected with an old friend who met Cherry and I at the pool the other day. She has a five month old son, and he's the cutest little thing ever. Well, besides my kid, of course!

~One of my darling friends has offered to take Cherry for a bit tomorrow so that I can have some time to myself! It's been so long since I've had time to myself during the day that I just can't think of what I want to do! I think I might do some yard work and plant some flower bulbs!

~Lost starts up again tomorrow! I'm so, overly, insanely excited about this!

Cece~~ how I LOVE a confident little girl. Good for Cherry! I remember being afraid to drop my (then) 3 year old daughter off at pre-school for the first time. i thought she would cry and want to come with me. She walked into the class, let go of my hand, said "Bye, mama" and took off with the teacher and kids. i cried all the way home!

Yayy! That sounds like fun. I think commenting on this comment might be painless so I don't expect you to try! ;)

Look I'd take 'Cherry' off your hands for a while- (unfortunately those sprogs seem to like me) but I'm too far away, Sheesh, whata shame ;)
What you going to do with winter time, heated pools surely wouldn't be that hot?

CeCe said...

Evan~The pools are indoors! And thanks for teh offer!
