My Life with S

A Snapshot From Our Weekend


Just lately, S has been choosing her own outfits – and it turns out she does a better job than mummy! For anyone interested, the top is from Next (last year’s Boxing Day sale, I think), skirt from M&S (Autumn sale I think) and leggings (spotty though you can’t see them) from H&M. On Saturday morning she decided breakfast could wait, and instead practised her running from the bathroom door, into my bedroom and back again.

IMG_20150117_150422For Christmas last year, Big S gave Little S one of those puppet books, Snowy Bear. For months she wouldn’t go near it – but over the last few months she’s been completely mad about puppets, and she loves Snowy Bear. On Saturday morning, she brought Snowy Bear to me with her drink, wanting Snowy Bear to steal her drink. Afterwards, Snowy Bear got a big kiss. Incidentally, this is how I managed to capture the lovely photo I used for My Sunday Photo this week.


We watched Spongebob on Saturday morning while we had a late breakfast. S has started saying “bit cold, mummy!” while she’s a the table, in the hope that I will relent and let her have a big blanket wrapped around her. On Saturday though, I put a hat on her, and it seemed to do the trick!

IMG_20150118_075905On weekend mornings when we don’t have plans, I like to be very lazy and put a dvd on in the bedroom. S likes to lay on top of the covers and demand “sausage mummy!” which means I wrap her in the duvet, like a sausage. These days she won’t smile for the camera so I have to catch her off guard by peeling back the covers when she’s busy being a sausage!
IMG_20150118_211853Never underestimate the worth of a good box. This is left over from our house move in October, and S still loves to hide in it. Yesterday she took a blanket in with her and sat all snuggled up until tea time.

    Seems like a lovely lazy weekend :) I love the sausage idea! I need to get my little boy a table, I think it's time he can eat his snacks at his own table. Thanks for reminding me! #magicmoments Joanna @mumbalance recently posted...Mallorca in Winter – The Imperfect HolidayMy Profile

      We have the hungry Caterpillar one too! He doesn't have arms to steal her drink though so I think Snowy Bear is more fun these days.

    S certainly does have great fashion sense! She looks adorable and sounds like she has a great personality. Alana x #weekendbloghop Alana Perrin recently posted...On the move … The wrong way!My Profile
