Friday's round out a busy week for us. We have swimming lessons in the morning and both kids are pretty exhausted after lunch after 1.5 hours swimming at the pool. Matilda has gone from a gremlin (scared of getting her head wet) to a real mermaid and is loving duck diving for things off the bottom of the pool and swimming without floaties, or a board or a mum or a dad! Kelvin has always loved the water but today he had a go at swimming in our 'playtime' between lessons. He was popping his face in the water, kicking his feet up and gliding to me.
So after lunch, we tend to have some quiet time (and I often find myself asleep on the couch whilst the kids watch Playschool - but that's another story). However, today they haven't really wanted the TV on (which is a welcome relief from the guilt of too much TV, but also, when am I going to sneak in my afternoon snooze?). Kelvin has discovered scissors and can keep himself entertained for the best part of an hour!
