easter sunday

We all had a lovely day, of sorts. Actually I had a lovely day watching the kids decorate their eggs. I bought some shrink sleeves. Thomas the Tank for the boys and some Pink princess ones for the girls. Then of course i had to buy 20 eggs upon which the aforementioned sleeves were shrunk!

It was a wee bit precarious with a 5yr old and 3yr old wanting to do the shrinking, but with a soup ladle and me guarding the pot of boiling water.....all went remarkably well....until we realised that the shrink plastic sleeves were protecting the egg shells from breaking. Still, not to be outwitted, my niece did her own version of rolling the egg (aka smash it to smithereens on the nearest wall).

Little miss A pretty much slept through the whole thing. I did sneak a crumb of chocolate flake onto her tongue during one wakeful moment, as I didn't think she should miss out on the whole easter egg thing.

Daddy's home

and all is well.......well....... it is a bit chaotic actually, but we love it.

Daddy misses his little girl so much when he is away that he dotes on her when he is back. Of course that means my routine is thrown out the window, as is her sleeping regime! The worst bit is trying to get her back into it when he is away again and I am on my own at 3...4...5 am. LOL!

For the last 2 weeks we have had a head cold, but what an achievement not to have had to go into hospital. I am convinced that it is all down to the removal of the nasogastric tube. She now has 2 wee nostrils to breathe through. The tube almost took up an entire nostril it was so wide. When you think about it, the top of your nose isnt very big at all, so that is what I'm putting it down to.

Not much crafting going on but I did get to a scrapbooking day at my local craft shop on saturday. Took little miss A with me and the ladies all doted on her. I was a bit nervous about disturbing their crafting fix, but they assured me that she is welcome back any time, lol.
