Easy on a Saturday Morning

It's easy to forget that sleep-in feeling. But for us waking up and seeing the time was 7.30am was a feeling of pure unadulterated bliss. Particularly after a late night date night with hubby, starting with dinner at Red Ginger followed by a final farewell to our epic hero Harry (Potter).

But there was one good reason for the sleep-in. We were missing a child last night.The one whose body clock seems to be permanently set to spring out of bed raring to go at 6am these days. He wasn't literally missing, just not physically in the house, enjoying a sleepover with a friend last night, and by all accounts he was going to have a whale of a time eating Hell Pizza and camping out in the lounge in a tent overnight!

I had forgotten how easy time with one child is...Mylo got to come and jump all over us in bed this morning, keeping himself amused by turning the lights above the bed on, off, on, off, on off, on off, on off. He then enjoyed helping Daddy open up the curtains, which got my lazy body promptly jumping out of bed to grab the camera at the sight of the winter's sunrise.

The little guy is such a happy camper at amusing himself, much more so than his big brother who always likes to do things with someone. Mylo will quite happily wander off and amuse himself with one activity after the next for a good length of time.

Note the special friends bunny and giraffe taking a ride on the pirate ship as well as poor mini bunny whose head you might just make out. He must have done something very naughty to find himself relegated to hitching a ride on the sails!

Aah Harold the helicopter. You are so much fun to play with....that is until your batteries start to go, and then the constant whirring sound you make is less than music to our ears...especially after twenty solid minutes on the go!

It only took four months to get you interested Mylo, but we are so glad to see how you love your horsey now kiddo. You love to point out both your eyes and his, your ears and his, your nose and his.

And that's what's called an Easy Saturday morning in our house.

But we have missed our biggest little guy, so come home soon!
