Thursdays are a deliberately quiet affair here. Quite simply it is Olly's tired day. He has two sessions of nursery under his belt, and other Olly and Mummy adventuring. He can wake up grumpy on Thursdays, so I try and keep the day as low key as possible. It's also an attempt to try and keep him awake for the whole day. Olly doesn't tend to nap, and if he does he isn't tired at night. I wouldn't mind any other night, but as Marc is home this evening, I have a my own selfish reasons for Olly being in the land of nod.
The plan today was to go to the library for story and craft time, but the sudden heavy downpour put paid to walking into town. So we have had a sofa day. This morning we watched 'Peter Pan.' Olly hadn't seen the film before. He loved it, especially the tick tocking Crocodile. We snuggled together, and the morning passed in a gentle manner.
Junk modelling was on the agenda this afternoon. Olly made a boat with minimal assistance from me. I was glue monitor, and chief cutter of cardboard tube. We sat opposite each other at the dining room table, both of us absorbed - Olly with his boat. Me with Olly.
He still fell asleep......
I tried to rouse him earlier. No chance. I'm leaving him. He needs the sleep, and to be honest I need to be far more relaxed about these things.
