A couple of cute photos to start with before I start my whingey post!
Today started with tears and ended with tears! From Kayla? No, from 5 year old Liam! He stayed in his bed all night which is unusual of late and I heard him get up and open the gate to go downstairs at about 7:30. He then came upstairs again to get something and then I heard the front door close. So I quickly manoeuvred Kayla`s head from under my arm and dashed downstairs and outside to find him half way down the street. I yelled out for him to get home which started the sobbing in the middle of the street. I then had to drag him home while he wailed about going to the festival. I somehow managed to calm him down and all was peaceful for a while.
Hub was supposed to be home by 10 to go to the festival so Liam called him at about 9:20 and he said he was on his way. 10 o`clock came and no hub so I called him, swore at him a bit and then hung up. We were all ready to go so off we went anyway. Hub turned up about half an hour later in the clothes he had worn out drinking last night. What a classy guy! The festival ended up being pretty fun. We knew lots of people there and Liam`s two best friends from daycare were also there so he didn`t stop running around all day. Kayla charmed everything and slept in the sling most of the time. Hub went in the arm wrestling competition and came 4th. He was beaten by a young guy in the semis and another young guy in the play off for 3rd so I told him maybe he should give it up as he`s getting too old. He of course blames it on his night on the turps and having a bit of asthma. Yeah right!
We got home from the festival antics at 3ish and then Ryuji and Liam went off to the inlaws house. Liam was already buggared from running around like a crazy animal so it wasn`t the best of ideas. They got home after 6 and Liam put on a major performance about eating dinner and burst into tears every 5 seconds. Ryuji hadn`t really seen him like that before so it was good that he got to see what I have been dealing with lately. I ended up leaving him to deal with it and took Kayla into the bath and up to bed. I came down to brush his teeth as I don`t trust Ryuji doing a good enough job (especially after lots of festival crap) and now they have gone up to bed together. Hopefully that means peace and quiet for the rest of the night. Kayla has already been awake so her sleep of late hasn`t been the best. She used to sleep through for at least 6 hours and sometimes 8 hours plus but has been a little out of sorts the last week or so. Tonight I think she woke herself up by rolling over on to her stomach.
Alright off to bed to finish my DVD. I am watching "It`s Complicated" which is very entertaining.
