It hasn’t been the Christmas of our dreams. Unfortunately, Boo came down with a sickness bug on the night before Christmas Eve, that saw her off to the emergency doctors on the night of Christmas Day, just hours before Little Man started being violently sick. The Husband fell foul of it yesterday, and though I’ve yet to succumb, it does feel kind of inevitable…They all look pale, exhausted, and our happy, fun-packed plans have gone by the way-side.
The only ray of sunshine here, was that fortunately, Boo managed to perk up a little for present-opening on Christmas morning, though she was up for over an hour before she even moved towards them – a sure-sign she felt bad.
Little Man was overjoyed to discover some In The Night Garden toys in his present pile, and if you read my Little Man’s First Love post, you wouldn’t be surprised by this!
And of course, though we’ve now been confined to the house for days, we’ve had plenty to keep us occupied! Amongst other things, Boo’s had Lego Friends, books, DVDs, games, and crafty and colouring kits galore! This ball track has proved popular, too..
Little Man’s Brio train track, with Janod Funny Magnets scattered about to ‘guard it’, is a huge hit with Boo, and I’m hoping it will be with him, too, in a couple of months when he’s old enough to appreciate it (he loves watching the trains go round, and then loves destroying the track!). She has played with it for hours and hours, which has been lovely to see.
Boo also has her first ever kite that she’s desperate to get out and fly, so fingers crossed we’ll manage to get out soon and enjoy some fresh air with that.
Hope everyone else has had a good one?
