Valentine’s and my love

My baby is the love of my life, and always will be, but it is nice to have a mummy and daddy date too. We both took a day off work and sent Henry to childcare as normal. I packed him a little treat today though, in the form of an iced gingerbread heart.

We went for lunch – and managed to both have a hot meal! We even went to the cinema to see Disney’s Wreck-It-Ralph. It was brilliant, and we both really enjoyed it. I think that is going to be one for the DVD collection.

And I’m even writing this on my brand new Kindle Fire. I’m a very spoilt lady, and I have safely kept my new toy away from mucky fingers and slobber for at least this evening. It has been a lovely day, and the sun has been shining in an otherwise cold and even snowy February.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.


Babysitter for Date Night

So for my Valentine’s Day present, the other half bought us tickets to see Sarah Millican live. It was so hard to leave the little one, even when I knew he’d be fine, and I missed him so much. I really enjoyed myself though. It was great fun, and I haven’t laughed so much in a very long time. It was nice to be a couple again, and have a little break. She was really very funny, and I was treated to a signed DVD and a tea towel (you’d understand if you saw her stand-up) as a little ‘night out’ present.

It was very strange not having to take a massive bag with me, and I did have that feeling that I had forgotten something when I left the house. It’s nice that we have family that can babysit though. We really are lucky.

When we got home, I went straight to check on him in his cot. He was sound asleep with his arms up by his head, and breathing softly. He’s such a beautiful, handsome boy, and I think I love him more and more every day. Especially now he’s developing such a cute, little personality.

It is so rewarding when he smiles at you and giggles when you play with him. He’s far more responsive and aware now compared to when he was first born, and is growing not only in size but socially too!
