Last weekend we took it quite easy. We didn’t even go outside. It wasn’t the weather for it anyway. Instead we spent time indoors. Playing, making, baking. Saturday morning was dedicated to cleaning. I was away the weekend before that so the house was a bit neglected when it comes to mopping, hoovering and sweeping. I caught up on that last weekend. The kids were playing away in the play room.
Friday was a big day for us. In 4 1/2 years, apart from friends and family, we have never had a babysitter before. We agreed that this is going to change once we move. I signed up to a babysitter website called Mindme.ie. I found a lovely girl who basically lives 5 minutes from our house. It couldn’t be any closer. We met her earlier during last week and decide to let her babysit the kids first time on Friday. I was going to my social tennis night and hubby had a competitive match on. We didn’t leave until the kids were in bed. Matthew sleeps like a log anyway. Chloe woke up an hour later but she had no issue being picked up by the girl and moved into our bed. So looks like we can actually go places together now.
Saturday evening we prepared pizza together. Homemade pizza seems to be the nicest. Matthew loves sweetcorn so we added loads of that to the pizza. Chloe isn’t a fan of it so she just basically had a margherita one.
As much as I hate Playdoh around the house and cleaning up the little bits and pieces that are falling down, both kids love playing with it. So at the weekend we got the ice cream castle out and made some pretend ice cream. I think the coolest part is the different shapes you can make like a banana or strawberry. Chloe got more playdoh from Santa so we used that as the original playdoh that came with the castle was nearly all gone.
This week I am going to be busy preparing things for Chloe’s birthday party on Saturday. I still have to pick up the big “2” balloon for Wednesday morning. I can’t believe my little baby girl is going to be two in less than 48 hours.
