As I was driving to La Fonda this morning to meet Brandie for a child less lunch (yes! both our kids were in preschool today) my tummy started to feel very peculiar. It felt very odd indeed, as if Bea has having a bit of a shake, not her usual kicks, pummels or roll. It wasn’t anything like any feelings I’d felt going into labor with Sam either, and for a moment if had me very confused and slightly alarmed. Then my tummy started ringing and I realised my mobile phone was in my pocket resting on my belly, and it was set to vibrate!
Had a super lunch with Brandie, albeit very odd without having to be in constant watch over toddlers. It was over all too soon though as I had to race off to pick Samuel up from school at one.
When I got to the school I had to scour the playground to look for Sam. I was wondering where he was until I realised that the grubby little boy running around happily covered in paint, dirt and glue was my darling son. All the other children looked quite prim in comparison.
Sam was engrossed in playing with another little chap but gave me a beautiful smile and a “Hello Mummy!” when he saw me. The two boys were trying to be tuneful and using some galvanised tubs hung on the wall as drums, until Sam’s little friend proudly told me that they were his timpani and he wanted to play them on his own now thanks! Well okay then!
I had to try to take some photos of the state Sam was in, but sadly the camera didn’t pick up the full extent of the mess. He really looked like he’d been having a lot of fun this morning.
When Sam saw me taking photos he ran up to check out the digital screen and see himself. He then went and sat on a log and posed for me. “Nam Photo Mummy!” Hilarious.
When we got home he took his shoes off and put himself to bed, exhausted little boy.
