Sorry I majorly suck with keeping to blogging weekly right now. Life is still steaming by on full cylinders. I have no viable excuses.
Sophie's black eye has completely gone now thank goodness. It was rather impressive but it's nice not to have to explain to everyone we see how she got it.
She is continuing to enjoy school although she did have a few little setbacks due to another little girl. We'll call her Missy A.
Missy A has been causing her some bother with sly little pushes here and little slaps there. Soph was getting a little upset about it and had said a couple of times she didn't want to go to school. I did have a quiet word with her teacher and asked if she could just keep an eye on the situation in case Soph was fabricating it all. So far so good though and she hasn't had too much trouble since. I have heard that Missy A has been causing trouble for others too so it's not just isolated to Soph.
Sophie is quite sensitive and takes a lot to heart so I'm glad we have sorted it out before it became a major issue and it's also taught Sophie how to stand up for herself but not to retaliate.
She's also had a couple of play dates with her 'best friend' this week and has had a blast. Her nan took the two of them to an indoor play centre and today she spent a couple of hours at her house. I did have to give her friends mum a brief explanation about why Soph doesn't eat much and also not to be alarmed at her cough.
I'm quite proud of how Soph handled it and she had so much fun. I thought it would be much harder for me to loosen the reins, but I think I've realised that Soph needs to enjoy every second and do the same things as all of her friends.
Life is definitely for enjoying and living!!
A few recent pictures of Soph enjoying a HUGE lollipop...
In other news I decided to enter a blog giveaway that was been hosted by Rach over at Mid 30s Life
.It was for the latest Postman Pat DVD and she was also throwing in a Tinga Tinga Tales DVD too.
Well we only went and won!!! I never win!!! Sophie absolutely loves them both so she was really excited too. If you haven't already please check out Rach's blog. It isn't a health blog and it has to be one of the funniest blogs I have read. I never leave without a smile on my face. So what you waiting for? Go check it out now!!
Here's the Postman Pat DVD (how cool are my camera skills!? :) )
Random picture of Sophie goofing around, this one makes me laugh lots...
Next years Skydive will be on the 1st of July 2012. Oh.My.Goodness.
If you remember, I foolishly declared I would be doing it alongside my husband and a few friends and my brother in law are very likely to be taking part too.
Must be completely mad but it's for a very worthy cause obviously.
Watch this space for me begging like crazy for sponsors ;)
I have other Sophie news but will leave that as a stand alone blog post for next time. Port flush is on Monday and also flu jab time for Ian, Soph and I too. Hopefully we will have no ill effects this year, it's non negotiable in my eyes and I'm not prepared to risk Sophie's health so we will all have to just go with it and see how we are.
That's all for now folks!
Take care xx
