Back home with new skills
One of the things I love about the fact that we travel regularly is that after every journey you return and it is immediately apparent that the children suddenly have different interests than before we left.
Well this time was a big fat look-what-I-can-do-mummy moment when Freddy (32 months) demonstrated that he can now reach the peddles on his tricycle (which was my husband's when he was a child).
And Henry (10.5 months) is on two feet albeit balancing with a low centre of gravity. He is showing a real interest in holes of any kind - if he can poke a finger in it then he likes it.
The boys are even learning to play with each other a little bit....
But those moments pass so quickly and are inevitably replaced with a tug of war (at best).
I know what you're thinking...what on earth are they both wearing??? Well they are matching pepparkaksgubben outfits (gingerbread men) which play a part in St Lucia celebrations and were kindly given to us by Janet in Sweden (Faster Mia's neighbour).
What to do now then? Well, we are packing to go to England as we speak.............
