I decided to take advantage of the brightening weather today so, after a brief sojourn to be fed lunch at my husband's office, and a monster nap from Pops courtesy of Ashton & Parsons teething powder, I took them into the front yard (why yes, we do live in the north!) with a tub of jumbo chalks from Tesco.
|That's actually half a pirate outfit he's wearing. I'd never clash horizontal and vertical stripes.|
To the right of the tub you can just about make out my amazing mermaid of awesomeness.
Ah hell, see a close up. See! Awesome.
After covering all available floor space we went inside and I read a counting book to Pixie, had a bath with them all, then nursed Pops to sleep. I think I did more active parenting in those few hours than I have in the last few weeks.
