nicholas: My poor little poppet, you really haven’t been well the past few days and it’s very rare to see you sick. In true Nicholas style, though, you will still give someone a smile or a wave, even if you’re not feeling your best. You have been unsettled in your bed, so you’ve spent a fair portion of time asleep on top of me, and thus your mumma is feeling a tad weary (and snot-covered). Thankfully we had a quiet weekend, with plenty of time for cuddling, but I do hope you’re on the mend soon.
charlie: A few times recently, I’ve looked over and seen a vision of you as a teenager, with your long hair and slightly ratbaggish nature 😉 We had a Prep parents orientation meeting this week, in preparation for you to start school next year, and learned who your teacher will be. We also visited school to pick up your new bag and uniforms, and it was the first time I had seen you express some excitement about this adventure you’ll soon be starting. I’m not sure about you, but I’m pretty sure I’m not ready for you to be a Preppie yet. Slow down, Charlie bear.
sam: You love any opportunity to spend time with your cousins, especially the big boys, so an afternoon of swimming and doing flips on the trampoline with them was pure heaven. A few weeks ago, you started doing weekly swimming lessons with your Prep class at a local pool, which you are loving. It has been over a year since you were in a public pool, as it was too much of a germ risk when you were going through intensive chemo treatment, so needless to say it’s been pretty exciting to get back into swimming.
