R2BC – the police car edition

It’s been quite a long time since I joined in with Reasons To Be Cheerful – a really long time – but I’ve decided it’s time to start linking up at Michelle‘s again. So here are this week’s reasons:

  • The boys are getting along so well now. A sudden change from the biting and fighting of the past month. We’ve no idea why the change, but it’s a wonderful change.

  • The sun is shining today and the weather is warmer again after almost a week of grey skies and rain.

  • We’re having fun this afternoon creating a police car for the boys to play in

  • Both boys are settled back in at their normal dagis (nursery) after a few weeks at a summer dagis and many of their friends are now back from summer holidays

  • Meal times seem to be less chaotic these days (although this could revert at any time, I imagine!)

  • We’re getting our money’s worth from our annual passes to Skansen, and the boys love visiting and looking at the animals there

    • They’ve taken their time getting to this stage, so it feels great to see them playing happily together. And today, Little O leaned over the stroller and stroked Baby E’s stomach while he slept – heart-melting moment.

    • We play “What does Pappa call it?” / “what does Mamma call it?” often, so it seemed a perfect opportunity to continue that – especially as Little O is fascinated by the alphabet at the moment.

  2. Glad to hear the boys are getting on better, it makes such a difference. Have a fab week. mich x

    • It does, doesn’t it? Life just becomes that little bit easier as a result.

  3. great reasons, love the idea of “What does Pappa call it?” / “what does Mamma call it?” game.

    • It really helps him (and hopefully Baby E, as time goes on) to understand we speak different languages.
