We were having a bit of a rubbish day on Monday. T was being a grump and having strops about every little thing and I was trying to finish a blog post meaning I was being a less than attentive Mummy. The house was a mess and we had no food in because I hadn’t even got dressed let alone managed a food shop.
Come 4 o’clock I decided it was time to try and salvage the day and be a slightly less crap Mum. So I got dressed(!), switched my phone off and we set off for the park.
It can really turn a day around, being outside, getting some fresh air and just enjoying my boy’s company. T goes from being a clingy, stroppy monster into a happy, cheeky, funny little boy as soon as he feels the sun on his face and the breeze through his hair, it’s like magic. This in turn makes me relax, my shoulders drop and I become a better version of me.
Even at just 15 months, T is such a little boy. He’s obsessed with trains, lorries, buses, anything with wheels, so when he saw this wooden train at the park, he ran over to it, pointing and making his cute excited ‘ooooh!’ noise.
He sat playing on it for ages, the biggest smile on his face, rocking from side to side. Then, just as I was trying to get some nice shots (I’ve just discovered aperture, what a revelation!), he decided to do a runner!
