Living Arrows 7

We have been so ready for half term in this house, especially this little grump. By the end of a good block of pre-school afternoons he really starts to show signs of being tired and run down. I love that final Friday before school holidays knowing that I have him home for a whole week; we don’t have to rush our lunch to get out on time or make sure the school uniform is washed. Luckily for us we also have Daddy home which means we can all relax and leave the day to day routine behind for a few days.

This last week he started to say he didn’t want to go to school which is something he has never said since he started last September. It isn’t anything serious as by the time we reach the school gates he goes running off to play with his friends, leaving me behind. Some days I would love nothing more than to keep him home with me, then there are other days when he is so full of energy that I enjoy the peaceful walk home once he has gone though those doors. The binoculars have had to come along for the walk most days so he can spot things on the way. This is usually something on the floor or wall just inches from his face but still he looks pretty cute stopping and peering through them.

I can see such a change in him since the Christmas holidays, so much more he is saying and understanding. Having him all to ourselves for the week is actually a real treat; we’ll make the most of it and hopefully lose the grumpiness ready for the next half term!

    Hopefully by the end of his time off from school he’ll be excited and ready to go back! Haha

    Aw, even when they look a bit grumpy, children are still cute at this age, especially in that hat!
