So now the cat’s out of the bag, I’ve decided no more wallowing and it’s time to get on with the single parenting lark. So we packed up our bags and headed off to one of our local beaches to walk the dog and blow some cobwebs away. There’s nothing better than a bright sunny beach day in the September sun to really wake you up and help you recharge for the week ahead.
The toddler adores sandy beaches, and I mean ADORES! The squeals of excitement as he ran around looking for buckets and spades, swim gear (no dear, absolutely NO SWIMMING today) and stood by the door chanting “beach, beach. beach”
I didn’t actually realise how much he’d changed over the summer holidays. Not only has his hair grown but his speech is amazing. From previous work training I was aware that 2 year olds should be learning 8 new words a day but I’ve never seen it in practice. More so because I’m aware of it I know, but it still amazes me.
Nothing to worry about in that department, which is lovely as being a parent is 90% worry, I’m sure of it!
